Throwback Thursday: Star Fox Adventures

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!

Kris and I have been exploring Star Fox and Star Fox 2 on the SNES Classic. Star Fox 2 was never released so, of course, we’ve never played it. We’ve never played Star Fox though either, so it was the first game we decided to try out. And it brought back some memories. Different memories, but memories nonetheless.

Star Fox Adventures was on the Nintendo Gamecube released on September 23, 2002. It’s an action-adventure game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo. It’s totally different from the typical Star Fox game where you’re in a ship shooting at things.

The story takes place eight years after the events of Star Fox 64. Krystal is searching for answers due to the destruction of her home planet. She gets herself into trouble and Fox investigates with the help of a dinosaur friend, Prince Tricky.

Kris and I never beat this game, but we did try to create our own version of it.

When we were kids, young and stupid, we took our parents’ video camera and tried to recreate the game as a movie. Kris was Fox and I was Tricky. We were so loud and obnoxious that our sister came out of her room to ask what we were doing.

Somehow, she ended up being our cameraman.

Needless to say, we didn’t get very far. I remember finding the tapes a few years ago while my mom was cleaning out her closet. The camera was in there as were the tapes and we watching some old vacation videos when our lovely movie came on one of the tapes.

I couldn’t say where they are now… I just hope I find them again someday. If I do, I hope they still work so I can watch.

Now I really want to give the game another go.
