Masikus - Sector Z³ and a few words about the recently announced Star Fox for Wii U

"Who are you guys?"
"We're Star Fox."

A Trio of Sector Z remixes from Masikus. Not a lot to add to that.  small collection, so allow me to rant about Starfox a little.

It's supposed to be an arcade game. Please Nintendo, put the outer space action flair back in Star Fox.

The greatest game ever, Star Fox 64 reveled in its sci-fi space fighter theme and used it to create a ridiculously quotable wrapper around the chocolatey core of tight, responsive controls and reflex driven arcade gameplay. Maybe you want to listen to the album while I continue.

Whatever becomes of the upcoming Star Fox announced during the recent E3, I hope that it is episodic content. What better way to show off the very idea of episodic content. Imagine playing through a new, roughly one hour Star Fox adventure every month. I believe this turns the normally jeered upon game length of arcade styled games into a positive, turning the experience from a 5-10 game into smaller, movie length experiences. 

Doing so would also reinvigorate the movie-like aspects of the beloved Star Fox 64, playing up the hokey dialogue and ammunition factory explosions every episode in glorious HD. 

What do you think? Could Star Fox, or perhaps some other series be revived better as episodic content?
