Let’s Play Star Fox on SNES

Cubex55 brings us another longplay with complete coverage of Star Fox on SNES. Starfox is a science fiction flight simulator with anthropomorphized animal characters in the pilot seat. I cannot properly characterize how many hours I played this game. It is the kind of game that I feel pure joy while flying. Also, Star Fox is one of the few SNES games to feature 3D graphics, which were enabled by the addition of a special co-processor chip in the cartridge called the Super FX chip. Unfortunately, the Super FX and Super FX 2 didn’t make it into many games. Nintendo planned to release the Nintendo 64, so they held back development on some games originally slated for the SNES so that they would have those titles at or near the launch of their next generation console.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
