    Star Fox Zero: First Print Edition is available for pre order at GAME for £50 plus £3 postage. That's nearly €68 when converted. Not sure why I'm acknowledging them seeing as I despise them. And I ordered Devil's Third from them almost 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived. Last game I ordered from them a couple of years ago didn't turn up either and I swore I'd never deal with them again. Anyway.......

    We Played a TON of Star Fox Zero - IN-DEPTH Hands-On Preview

    Seems mostly positive but the controls are still an issue.

    I can't wait now, about 2 weeks out isn't it?
    Fingers crossed Game Collection won't take too long shipping it.

    Just to give you an idea on how their shipping is as I ordered Twilight Princess HD amiibo bundle from them, it was shipped on the Wednesday where as release was on the Friday, I received it via An Post on the Monday however, I know of one other user who ordered the same bundle via TGC but got it sent to parcel motel instead and he got it late friday afternoon instead.

    I'm looking forward to this game and seeing as amazon.co.uk never seemed to get the first print edition in stock, I'm glad I bit the bullet and ordered it from Amazon.fr when it went up there. 67 quid for it delivered is grand, despite definitely not getting it on release date.

    A couple of days after release is fine, it's not like I haven't got a multitude of games baying for attention from the pile as it stands!

    According to that the First Print Edition is exclusive to themselves and nintendo.co.uk in the UK... Hence it never showing up on amazon.co.uk I guess.

    I was caught napping and missed it on amazon.fr so I've taken the chance and ordered it with Game. Hopefully I'll get it sometime before June.

    Is the exclusivity deal with GAME not limited to the high street? I've ordered previous games that were supposedly GAME exclusive from other .co.uk websites. Maybe they were just UK in domain name but operating from another country.

    Edit: Coolshop have a UK domain but send their games from Denmark usually. But there only recently I ordered Devil's Third from GAME and of course it took well over a week to arrive but interestingly it shipped from Sweden.

    There was a reason I didn't post that.....

    On the latest IGN Nintendo Voice Chat, they did a 30 minute preview. Largely positive. Controls have a bit of a learning curve, but they seemed to overall like it. I expect a score between 7.5 and 8.5 from them. Not the disaster they were expecting.

    For some reason that reminds me a little of the old (very old) NES/SNES ads. I like it.

    While I very much enjoy the IGN Nintendo Voice Chats, I find that they're always in a rush to be at another meeting. Yet their site output is bare bones, especially when you look at blog sites that do so much more. And they for the most part take ages to upload them to Youtube, sometimes not at all. I'd love to know what they do every day. IGN used to be my number 1 site back in the day of Matt Casamassina, now I rarely if ever go to their site, only to watch their podcasts and visit the Wii/Wii U forums.

    I really want this day one but the controls talk is scaring me. If this is motion based crap I'll be sorely disappointed.

    Well colour me impressed with the main games scores and surprised that a mini game should score so well in pervy Grippy's game.

    Not too long now, only 10 days... so, assuming Dark Souls 3 arrives tomorrow, that's 9 days to finish it before Corneria needs my help.... and I've to finish Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 first.... and Arkham Knight....

    Bugger...

    Famitsu = giving-thumbs-down-smiley-emoticon.gif

    I think the review embargo ends next Wednesday.

    Edit: 8p.m PT, 3p.m ET, so early hours of Thursday here, 4a.m. Or probably what it all goes by, midday in Japan.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,431 ✭✭✭MilesMorales1


    Dark souls 3, mario bros U selects, ratchet and clank and starfox and alienation, then yokai watch, then uncharted...


  • Registered Users Posts: 697 ✭✭✭kevin2me


    Great Scores in Famsitu. Glad it was well liked.
    As StarFox fan id be happy with 8/10, as fanboy in me bring it up to a 9 :)
    Looking fwd to both games Gamepad uses.

    Cool Article on here too. Good read.

    Project Guard could be up there with some of Nintendo like style great mini games. Ive gotten hours fun at house parties with people that never seen Wii U from NintendoLand (AnimalCrossing Game) and Raving Rabbits on the Wii.

    Couldn't disagree with you more on the gamepad usage.

    I'd love if all they with the gamepad is off screen play or maybe an inventory at a push.

    Unfortunately they seem to be adamant to implement something that such a small minority of their audience want.

    As for project guard I'm looking forward to seeing what they've come up with here but wouldn't be holding up much hope of more than a few hours of pick up play and forget about it.

    Nice to see a good score though, that's positive.

    I'm going I can just use the regular controller, and to hell with the motion controls.

    I want to use regular controls but there has been a LOT of motion control talk throughout development of this game which worries me.

    Say it ain't so!
    It ain't so!
    According to this article the motion/gamepad controls can be disabled but you aren't going to be able to hit all the targets, so if you are a 100% kind of completist then you are going to have to live with them.

    http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/06/nintendo_says_that_star_fox_zeros_gyro_controls_can_be_turned_off

    Me, not so much, regular controls all the way!

    Ok I hadn't seen that. Thank god is all I can say.

    I just remember seeing pictures of them holding the gamepad up with cockpit view etc.

    If it can be turned of that's fantastic news.

    Probably should have this preordered but there just still a part of me not ready to pull the trigger on it.

    I don't know why but I just don't trust them with it.

    Hopefully I'm proven madly wrong and it's a great game.

    Being a big starfox64 fanboy I'll always make a comparison to that which is hard to live up to let's be honest.

    That said update the graphics and give me more starfox 64 and it'd be a day one purchase all day long!!

    Don't get fancy on me Nintendo! Don't make a mess of this!

    The file size for Star Fox Zero is 6.2 GB's, with an additional 1.5 MB's needed for installation. Star Fox Guard is 2.1 GB's. I'm surprised at the size of Star Fox Guard.
