Welcome one and all to the first installment of the /v/ /gameclub/ thread! The idea of these is to have everyone involved play the chosen game for the week and try their hardest to beat it. Maybe you'll be the first, maybe you'll be the last. You might have the highest score or the lowest, but you'll have played another game. If you're real lucky it might even be something on your backlog. Alternatively, it's a rotating topic that provides a game for people to discuss. Was it good, was it bad, does it hold some place in your heart or not hold up at all? Is the soundtrack composed of total bangers or does it make your ears bleed? Did it turn you into a furry? Don't answer that one.
This week's pick is the space shooter classic, Star Fox 64!
>Star Fox 64, known as Lylat Wars in the PAL regions, is a 3D rail shooter video game developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 console. It is the second installment in the Star Fox series and a reboot of the original Star Fox game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. (via Wikipedia)
Apparently the game was also praised for its voice acting at the time. All memes aside, there recently was a release of the uncompressed audio files and the level of voice acting an N64 game had is actually impressive:
It also holds the place of the best-selling Star Fox game of all time.
Since this is the first time I'm trying this, consider the week for this game as starting early. Completing Star Fox 64 will be the goal until midnight on May 9th, and on Monday May 10th the next game will be assigned.
>How does this work?
You find a copy of the game of the week, boot it up, and try to get through as much of it as you can. If you beat it, that's great! Post about your progress if you want - screenshots are appreciated!
>Will this be every week?
Maybe, probably not. Please feel free to provide input on how long games should be selected for, what games you'd like to recommend for the next thread (it'll probably get chosen through a strawpoll or something throughout the week), or even if we should have some sort of leaderboard included for times/scores. I'd like to keep the time frame consistent (so regularly 1 week or 2 weeks) and the games on the more realistic side for completion (so no hundred hour rpgs or MMOs). Additionally I'd prefer any recommendations to be games easily obtainable for emulation or purchase.
