Old snes was the best. Earthbound, FF2/FF3, Chrono Trigger. Awesome rpgs. It is especially cool that they still work, at TS said, his 360 is broke... these older systems they were built to last.

I still have my PS1 and PS2. I hardly play with them anymore but they're there. But out of all the consols I had through the years, I miss my Dreamcast the most. It was very badazz. First consol with internet connectivity. The games kicked butt. The graphics were awesome....I wish they would port games from the DreamCast so we could get them on PSN. Like Shenmue, Speed Deamons, Spawn, UFC...the list goes on.


That system was soooo far ahead of its time. You forgot to mention FOUR ports and that it came with MS Windows. I still play games on mine when I get super drunk and nostalgic. It's still worth the 35 bucks or so to pick up a used one and it's still super fun. If mine ever broke, I'd definitely buy another one.

sometimes its better to keep these things as fond memories in the mind....


We must have played the same game cause yeah, the ones I played back in the day I now hate and the others like Ecco that I never got to play, I finally did and thought "err.....well this sucks, glad I had a SNES instead now".

Seriously, what was the point of Ecco? Swimming around randomly, eating random fish, that's all I ever got out of it.

NES, SNES, N64 and Gamecube I definitely get nostalgic for. Would say Dreamcast but I only ever played ChuChu Rocket and Sonic Adventure on that, otherwise like the Playstation and PS2, I never really wanted to own one.

Was it just called Lylat Wars in Europe? Now they've re-released it on the 3DS as Starfox 64 3D and it just seems weird to use that name now.

Oh and the obligatory:

"DO A BARREL ROLL!!"

I was always interested in Shadow of the Colossus, is this pack going to X-box?
From what I gathered way back when, you basically travel massive lands to get to massive monster's. but there's not much in between. Is that right.

No lesser enemies, no towns and no side quests? That is why I think I didn't get it, but I don't know how true that is.

I'm pretty sure StarFox 64 was the sequal to Lylat Wars.
I loved StarFox 64.

So the new game (Starfox 64 3D) is a sequel to Lylat Wars?

Only ask because I'm not sure.

Lylat Wars was the only Star Fox game released on N64 (I got it on release with the Rumble Pak) and the next game in the series was Star Fox Adventures on Gamecube but the one before Lylat Wars was Starwing on the SNES (the first in the series).

You actually have it nailed down pretty well. There are item hunts that take you all over the massive landscape and they are really just designed, I think, to provide a reason to travel around. I can totally understand how one could find the whole idea to sound pretty boring but I have never played a game like it. It really drew me in on an emotional level right away. Maybe the simplicity of it and the simpleness and broad appeal of the story allow the player to project a lot on to the game.

Whatever it is, I have had my mind drawn back to the game over and over without having played it for months. It really stuck with me. I really do recommend it. I hear a lot of talk about video games bridging in to the realm of art and I think SoC is the closest thing to that I have ever experienced.

Unfortunately it is not available for the XBox.

IDK maybe it was just the European name for it but i'm pretty sure they're different games.
I never played Lylat wars but did play Starfox 64. Or was it the other way around, I can't remember that well, you could be right, maybe they were the same game named differently in different regions.

Wiki could help.
