Episode 17 – Star Fox 64



“Do a barrel roll!”  This episode, our intrepid hosts are hopping into the cockpit again for some classic space combat from 1997 with STAR FOX 64.  In doing so, they answer some of the world’s burning questions like: What’s the difference between a barrel roll and an aileron roll?  What really makes something an aircraft?  And most importantly, what are “space meters”?

 

Chris and Katie take a deep dive into this rails shooter, trying to make their way to the planet Venom to fight and defeat Andross.  Along the way, they get frustrated at the AI of their teammates, learn a bit about Leeroy Jenkins, and remember just how annoying the Nintendo 64’s controller could be (especially with the Rumble Pak in!)

 

Take a listen, reminisce about the ’90s when flapping cartoon mouths were the pinnacle of graphical achievement, and enjoy!
