If you’ve never had the pleasure of playing one of the greatest video games ever created, now is your chance to live some of its glory.
Star Fox 64 is a legend on so many levels. The invention of the rumble pack was the beginning of the institution of vibration-based immersion in video games. Shooters would be lost without it.
Not only was Star Fox 64 a revolutionary game in terms of graphics and gameplay, but it also redefined the awesome world of video game voice acting. It still remains one of the most often quoted games in history, and it deserves any bit of praise that comes its way.
Wanting to give the voice acting the credit that it deserves, I decided to pick out my top 10 favorite quotes as an homage to one of my favorite games of all time. Here they are:
“The last metroid is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace.”
This simple phrase is the first step of a wildly satisfying, epic journey in quite possibly the most perfect action and exploration video game ever made, Super Metroid. Of all the games I’ve owned, rented, or played over the course of my 28 year existence, it ranks right up there with Chrono Trigger as a textbook example of gaming bliss. In many people’s opinions, it could even be considered the definitively best video game experience ever created. You’re all well aware that my loyalty still lies with the aforementioned time-traveling RPG, but it’s only by a very narrow margin.
Several decades ago, a 2 or 4-player version of a single-player, story-based campaign was an important consideration in the design and release of a game. Now, that is not so much the case.
With the cost of most 1st party games necessitating the need to cut corners, the decline of couch co-op has been an inevitable reality that gamers have had to face.
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (aka Super Famicom, Super NES, SNES, Super Nintendo, or Jesus Christ incarnate) is a 16-bit video game console that was unleashed upon the adoring Nintendo-centric public in North America in 1991.
In all my years of being entranced by bright pixels and engrossing game worlds, I have never been captivated by a game so completely as by Chrono Trigger on the SNES.
Have you ever wanted to have all of your NES video games in one place, hooked up to your HDTV, without the need for a huge amount of space for cartridges or a bunch of adapters?
Why not find a good multiplayer game for some couch co-op and digitally-inspired drinking games? Fortunately, there are ridiculously cheap ways to obtain these multiplayer party games and you’d be a fool not to grab a few for a rainy day.
