For those of you who don’t remember, I did a Retro Wrap-Up for the Star Fox franchise with almost every commercial that Nintendo of America has ever done. I say “almost” because there is one glaring omission that I completely neglected. Nintendo of America made a 10-minute VHS promotional video for Star Fox 64. It’s absolutely stupid and cheesy and I feel terrible for not mentioning it before. Thus, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) shall present to you the video in all of its hilariously cheesy glory in this week’s Retro Wrap-Up.
Here are the highlights of this past week.
Josh Speer reviews Rayman Legends for the Wii U, Steve Baltimore reviews Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, David Fernandes reviews Killer is Dead and Justin Guilou reviews Jumping Flash! for the PS1 in this week’s Retro Review. In addition, Josh Speer reviewed the Okami Official Complete Works and the MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works art books.
Jon, Jared and Randy decide to host a Legend of Zelda roundtable in this week’s installment of The Downpour Podcast, which will now be available every two weeks.
Not only has Valve announced a new operating system called SteamOS, but they also revealed a new controller for use with its various Steam machines.
In addition, both Atlus and Aksys have permanently dropped the price of some of their eShop titles, including Etrian Odyssey IV: The Legends of the Titan and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers.
Finally, there will be some changes coming to OpRainfall. Don’t panic! Everything’s going to be fine.
