Well.......why can't Nintendo just do it themselves? Did they originally wanted to put in the characters from Banjo Kazooie?

I always thought about gutting that console out and turning it into a nice small lunchbox. Same said for my NES.

All consoles should have a handle. The lack of handles in this industry is worrying.

It does seem that nobody has a "handle" of the console business these days.

Apparently Nintendo thinks they're too good for DK. They've pretty much been letting Rare handle him since early 90's and now Retro. They must think he's a big dumb ape.

That would explain why he wasn't playable in a number of Mario Party games.

Why did they have to inject dumb stuff like land vehicles and wandering terrain on foot? That's not what Starfox is all about.

Zabba wing dabba.

They was implanting it in the finished but unreleased Star Fox 2. I suppose they figured it would help add verity to the game. I honestly think it could instead be improved through pacing. Speed up some levels to make the pace fast and frantic. Much like fighting the Armada in the orignal game.

Everybody and their momma hates on Star Fox Adventures, so sue me or whatever but I really enjoyed it. It was like a Zelda game.

Although I do understand the perspective that was it really nothing like a Star Fox game, it was still a good game. I beat it before but I would like to re-buy it if found cheap enough.

Thought I'd post this here:

Anyway, this is 100% true. Read 1993's issue of Nintendo Power. From that issue is states:

Yes. Probably voluntarily amputated.
