F-Zero X is the best game in the series.
The whole 80's/90's comic book style of all the menus and character art went well with the over the top speed metal. The tracks were fun and the mechanics were solid and completing master difficulty was brutal. Taking out other ships was satisfying and necessary unless you had godlike driving skills. X cup was a blast for having friends over and drinking games, speeding down randomly generated tracks trying to destroy each other or boost overtaking in the final strait makes for a great time.

>Nintendo changed the series direction with GX making the game have a more modern, Japanese and generally more camp feel as opposed to the over the top "metal" feel of X.

Is it me or is Falcon a lot more similar to his F-Zero X incarnation?
He looks a lot more rougher and angrier.

Too bad it falls short on the most important aspect: gameplay.

GX is the superior game.

I can't beat either game on the harder difficulties but it's likely because I refuse to use anyone but Pico in X. Does GX seriously come with an AX cup if you beat everything?

Exactly. I'm glad someone else shares my objectively correct opinion on F-Zero.

what i would do for a new f-zero game would be all in the single player campaign. i'd go with a saints row / GTA style open world (without the adult themes and guns) where you would play as a custom new racer, free to explore big f-zero places like mute city and port town. you'd drive around in a sort of "cruiser" mode where in addition to driving models of famous existing machines around (purchasable at a garage) you would visit shops to create your own machine from scratch. you'd get parts by purchasing them at other stores with money you'd get from completing missions. you could also give your character new clothes and other customization options via shops as well. some missions would center around the main story but others would be sidequests not pertinent to the main story. you would interact with other racers all over the world and participate in races that change dynamically. results of races would be compiled to your nintendo ID to form a leaderboard system based on how many races you've been in and how well you did in them.

with this though is still the traditional "grand prix" mode, where you can race like past f-zero games, but you also have the option to import your character to play as OR even download a friend's racer and machine

what do you think, /v/?

Sega made gx
>>
GX is better in every way. F Zero X is good, but don't pretend it was the best in the series when GX is blatantly superior.

>b-but muh thrash metal soundtrack and comic book design :_;

GX had great (and arguably better) music than X. Cut your hair, "metalheads".
>>
>>253378265
And that's why it's better.
>>
What's interesting about F-Zero X in particular is that unlike GX or any other game in the series, it actually made me feel nauseous, in a good way. And I'm not the type of person to get motion sickness.

Not a lot of games emulate a dropping feeling in your stomach, as if you're on a roller coaster of some kind. And the level design of the tracks make you feel on edge, with less room for error, (since you don't just get carried back on course if you fall off like in GX.), and with less railings, high and low drops and wild fucking courses.

I think this game stands out among the rest of the series because it can actually make you feel something, it can emulate an actual reaction into you and make it feel real. Am I alone in this? Probably. But I guess it's just a matter of opinion.

Also, the soundtrack is WAY superior than GX's. The arcade-y, J-Pop-ish soundtrack didn't sit well with me at all.

I actually hate metal but think X's music fits better with its art at atmosphere.
Some of GX's music is great but the anime looking characters and "wow so futuristic menus with lots of blue like we are inside a computer" design choices come together to create something not as cohesive.

If you're playing splitscreen with a friend maybe. Not in the actual SP modes. Did you even play GX?

Not him but Digi-Boy had a pretty Jpop-ish theme. That's about it.

>>253379480
Did you play a single mode outside of Practice?
>>
>>253379701
I played it a lot too. X and GX are both superior in every way. Each game is better than the last by a significant margin.
>>
>>253379893
I had the first one so I played it everyday. When I had a N64 I barely had games, I played the entire N64 library by renting, so I didn't have much time to practice. I didn't get to play GX until recently.

I SUCK ASS at X and GX, but I'm pretty good on the original. But you're right though. X and GX are better even though I barely played them.
>>
>>253369270

agreed. f-zero x just had much tighter controls and better, albeit limited, soundtrack. gx only improved the graphics.
>>
>>253379885
The character themes?

Well shit, those cover all kinds of genres. Rock, metal, various kinds of electronic, even Christian rock. The actual soundtrack for the menus and the tracks is almost all electronic though.
>>
>>253379403
It's very pop-y, not like American Pop, but very lively and energetic like Pop music, but "arcady" is more fitting of a description. I dunno, it just didn't sit well with me.

Also, am I insane? Because in every match I've played, I always get carried back by that little robot thing that carries you back. There may be a way to get rid of it, but I didn't see it. Maybe I'm just retarded and don't know what I'm talking about.

Is it whether you want more Top Speed or more Acceleration?
>>
>>253382634
Yes, if I remember correctly you never ever go for more acceleration.

>>253382634
yes, it high top speed makes your max velocity high but your turbo shit, and vice versa iirc

>>253382503

IT'S A FUCKING RACING GAME. You could literally make F-Zero GX HD with online and we'd take a dick up your asshole for it.

While you figure out how you want to LE INNOVATE A RACING GAME maybe you could just give us one in the meantime

Nigga, do you even Falcon? He's not fighting to win, he's fighting because it's fun. He's just incredibly good at it.
What do you think "Show me your moves" actually means? He WANTS you to give it your all and show him what you've got. If there isn't a challenge, then it just isn't worth his time.
>>
Pico is a better character than Falcon
>>
X was a lot more fun and better.

Everyone circlejerks about how "perfect" GX is, but it's not nearly as satisfying. There's no weight to it, so much visually cluttering the screen, and controls/camera so off that it just feels like the screen is autoscrolling without my vehicle moving, like how Audio Surf feels. The zero gravity sections weren't implemented well because a lot of them contributed even more to not being able to see ahead of you in tracks.

And the style and music of it was just plain terrible compared to X.
>>
Why do people want a 'gta-like' F-Zero? What a dumb idea.
>>
>>253377217
That sounds pretty boss. But consider that Captain Falcon is a bounty hunter. Why not make it that he goes around in the Falcon Flier to other planets, take part in races, catch criminals, and eventually explore the F-Zero Underground. The prize money from races and/or bounties received from criminals all go towards the upgrades.
Also, F-Zero U. It;s the only Wii U game where the U at the end actually makes sense.

I want a game in the F-Zero universe that's not just racing because they made it interesting and unique, with more or less every single character teased for talents and professions completely unrelated to racing.

How is it dumb? Captain Falcon is also supposed to be a bounty hunter and the F-Zero universe has a lot to work with for other things to go on other than racing. It has the potential to be a really great game, and God knows, Captain Falcon needs another F-Zero game. Besides, F-Zero could become a gta style sandbox game with racing still being a central part of the game to further differentiate it from Nintendo's other racing games.

Dear Nintendo:

YOUR COCKSUCKING PRODUCT HAS REDUCED ME TO A GIBBERING MAN-APE WHOSE ONLY RESORT TO DEALING WITH THE ALMIGHTY FUCKING GRIEF IT'S BESTOWED UPON ME IS TO SCREAM AND HURT MYSELF.

Seriously, I am jumping up and down and throwing my shit in handfuls at the fucking television in some impotent primal effort to get the thing to work. I have been sitting here trying to enjoy your product - YOUR PRODUCT, YOUR GAME, YOUR CONTRACT BETWEEN DEVELOPER AND CONSUMER THAT THE CONSUMER WILL ENJOY YOUR PRODUCT - but instead the damn thing's been crawling out of the console and taking warm shits in my gaping mouth. Swear to god, you should have just added a little door to the console through which a hand pops out and flips me off, because I am insulted that your QA or testers or whatever brainless shitstove three genes short of a monkey FAGNUT signs your games through thought that a person with more than a single fucking digit IQ could enjoy Story Mode Chapter 7. INSULTED.

WORK WITH ME HERE: The goal's simple enough! Come in first! Hey, that's fine, it's just like playing the grand fucking prix; not a problem! Only deal is your cross-eyed team of tongue-slapping wunderkind decided to give the game every single fucking advantage possible TO THE GAME rather than me.

How in the fuck does Black Shadow - whose car is the heaviest and lamest piece of shit next to the Crazy Bear - suddenly become SO FUCKING GOOD that he can stay in first without using a drop of boost? Huh!? Why!? You never see this shithead anywhere near the top fucking 20 in a normal race. BUT HO HO HO THIS TIME HE'S MEGA-COCK, THE FASTEST FAGGOT IN THE WORLD. 1.21 GIGAWATTS MARTY, LET'S GO BACK TO THE FUCKING FUTURE.
But it's not just Black Shadow with the magical powers, it's the entire fucking lineup of racers! THEY'RE ALL FASTER THAN YOU. AND DON'T REQUIRE ANY BOOST.

Add to this the entire course just got shitted on by some retarded space tiki volacano god and you've got a course full of hazards that'll drain at least 1/4 of your energy bar JUST BECAUSE IT CAN. WHOOPIE.
HURRR, you say. THAT'S JUST THE CHALLENGE. IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EASY. Well fuck that noise, you lopsided frankenfaced fuckfurter.

Tell me, please, why does the GAME have to win? Huh? What happens when the game wins and I lose? Is there some huge fucking kegger waiting for it when it gets done? Is there money involved? Or perhaps the motives are more sinister. Maybe the game's family is being held hostage by another game and that game has it's cock in F-Zero's wife's mouth and he's holding a cell phone up to her and F-Zero can hear her pained moans and cries for help and the asshole game then says, "You beat that cock-sucking human, or I'll blow her brains out." I COULD UNDERSTAND THAT. I CAN BE SYMPATHETIC.

It's not any fun if I can't win, you faggots. I want to move on. I want to unlock that piece of shit clown car you have hidden away from me so I can start racing and get pissed off with that too. When your game prevents me from fully enjoying the product I have bought you have failed in your fucking mission to deliver a game. You lose! You break the contract!

Honestly this is why I'd love it if a new game went back to the ways of X a bit. I'd love it if visually the game had a cell-shaded comic book art style. Japan has gotten real good at that sort of thing these past few years, and I'm sure it would look amazing on the Wii U.

Also I totally agree on the attacking, it felt like it was an important part of the gameplay and far more satisfying that the immediate *poof* racers do in GX. This was only achievable because the game was also slower, something I honestly didn't really mind.

GX is a fine game, but I feel it has a different appeal in some ways.

Where in my post did I bring up difficulty? At what time did I say it being hard made it better?

It's better because the game is so deep that no human has ever reached the speed ceiling the game has to offer. There are actually two methods of racing, Snaking and Max Speed racing. It's played on a better controller and has better graphics.

As far as responsiveness goes, exactly how much throw the N64 control stick have compared to the GCN control stick? There's a reason there's an option to calibrate your stick on GX. The triggers on the N64 are also digital-only input, so you don't have as much control over your side brakes. More responsive my ass.

> F-Zero games on the GBA, which were shit

I hear a lot of people say this, but Climax was pretty great.

And for fans of X it had a lot of nice bits from it. Remixes of it's music (Best version of Dream Chaser), the return of Death Race in a mode filled with other challenge race types, it had a track editor like the expansion kit version of X. The artwork was even similar to X's.

Gameplay wise it managed to bring back the boost power-up from the SNES game while still keeping the meter based boost from X and GX, allowing for double boosts, boosts from Spin Attack, even triple boosts if you saved them up till the last lap. It also had a safe landing mechanic which was also interesting.

Some of it's elements wouldn't translate too well into a 3D F-Zero, but the game was still solid.

GX has no rubberbanding in GP mode. X meanwhile has Mario Kart tier rubberbanding.

F-Zero GX only felt challenging for this sole reason
Rubberband AI
Chapter 7 is the pure example of Rubberband AI increasing the difficulty up the charts
X didn't had this, Master mode only made the AI of the other racers to use Boost power when they have the chance and the level design is what made the game excellent, go ahead and beat X cup or if it's possible to emulate the F-Zero X EXpansion kit, play the EX tracks, they are superb
>>
>>253393984
well now that gives me more hope.
man i really want to play it again
>>
>>253394109
Grand Prix in GX doesn't have rubberbanding, so your point is worthless. Story Mode is supposed to be ridiculous and unfair, that's the charm of it.
>>
>>253394109
While I prefer X to GX, X did have some weird rubber banding, although it was really manic.

At times the AI racer would just go 'fuck it' and shoot past everyone and stay in the lead for no fucking reason, and other times it would slow down just as I reached the finish line, almost letting me win.

Sometimes I wonder if it's because I've played the game too much, but really the AI wasn't perfect either. Still a fucking great game.
>>
>>253394234
I was talking more of Story mode though

Then again, GX still has some stuff that feel inferior to X
To be honest, if Nintendo gives F-Zero a damn chance, they should remake X with the same speed from GX and ONLY NINTENDO should make them for this sole reason
AV and/or Sega are unlikely to make a new one because GX killed AV and the Monkeyball series[Monkey ball 3 was cancelled after GX and that lead them to their doom] and considering other studios that made the same type of games are dead, Nintendo seems to be the only ones
>>
>>253394451
The only time i've seen X being unfair is when some racers are somehow faster than you at the first lap, kinda like how Black Shadow was lightning fast despite his ship is a damn turtle in chapter 7 on very hard but the last time i saw it i was playing the X Cup

Badass AD2000 art-style felt superior to the animu style that GX had

X looked pretty Liefeld-ish.
>>
>>253393395
>GP Legend was pretty good
Nothing close to Climax. Well, maybe it's a competitivefag disposition but Climax controlled much better technically than GP Legend.
>>
>>253395503
I didn't saw someone being super out of place
Sure, everyone even the girls were muscular and bulked up but the style itself was more AD2000 than Liefeld
Compare Turrican's USA covers to F-Zero X character images and you will see a difference

I liked Climax but something bothered me about the way some machines handled. Some of them lose speed from turning and I figure out how to make use of them.

Also X cup was all sorts of crazy, I loved the suicide tracks that would fuck with every computer racer, and maybe even the player if he wasn't paying attention.

>>253395503
Yeah X's did sort of come off as that, but like a more fun and competent version of it. The characters actually had feet and pouches were kept to a tasteful amount. (Also no dual katana/assault rifle wielding)

You probably won't hear this from anyone in this thread, or even the fanbase, but if they do ever make a new F-Zero I really hope it's a sequel/remake of Maximum Velocity. The plot fast-forwarded 25 years into the future had a lot of potential. It had a cool lead too.

You know if you put me in the director's chair I could come up with 20 brand-new things minimum. It would be a waste to recycle GX when it had so much potential. F-Zero was a pretty underdeveloped franchise when it died.

It's like Miyamoto's imaginative mind is trashed out or something.

This is one of the things I don't often see people notice.

It isn't 2003 anymore, and it's been over a decade since the last F-Zero happened. I'm pretty sure people would be pretty open to the idea of a new one if it presents itself well enough without having to add too many new mechanics to it. Make the game fucking cell shaded to give it some pop, and because the Wii U is probably good at those kinds of visuals.

New tracks, great gameplay, no absurd barrier to content and a variety of modes is all the game would really need. Keep the ruthless difficult to Expert and Master ranks and everyone is happy.

Don't forget good marketing. Hype sells everything, especially in 2014. Hell you see what happened with Mighty No 9. Capcom intentionally starts neglecting Mega Man for years, Keija Inafune steps in and gets 4 million off Kickstarter. People are extremely unpredictable.

Nintendo is retarded for killing F-Zero. To begin with, the racing genre is one the most successful and highest selling the world today. GX was released in a time of RPG and Action-Adventure dominance. The Gamecube's failure didn't help either.

They were doable if you learn the tracks and machines, like any good racing game should be. That doesn't apply to casuals of course but they still need to have their fun in order for the game to sell.

This is true, good marketing is a must. However considering the main audience would have to be Nintendo fans, it's probably a tough sell. Japan is pretty good at creating hype though through trailers and their way of revealing content, so maybe that will get them to buy something other than what they are comfortable with.

I didn't knew racing games were doing better now though that might have something to do with them using real brands, which people are really into apparently.

My memory must have been fucked in this case, I seemed to assume the first Sand Ocean track was more than one.

That is not to say that it was unbearably difficult, I just never had fun racing on it personally.

I actually didn't like a lot of the tracks in GX from a layout standpoint, but I wouldn't say they were bad. Just a personal preference.

Lateral Shift was fine though.

Drift Highway is way too fucking short for this game, it's hard to catch up to first even on lower difficulties.
