“Incoming Enemy Fighters, Prepare To Launch!”

To this day in my back bedroom I still have my Nintendo StarFox poster hanging on the wall! I was what you would call a fanatical StarFox player. I’m not sure if it was because I was so excited about the 90’s Super FX chip or just really enjoyed a nice anthropomorphic game title. I always hoped that somehow I would one day be able to get my hands on some action figures of that series. I’d even buy a Falco toy, and he was a complete jerk! Check out the below commercial for the U.K. version of the game, StarWing. It even has Rik Mayall (The Young Ones) in it!

    Everyone I know who played the StarFox games says the same dang thing about Falco. If you did a word association and said “Falcon,” I would say 90% of all people who have played the games would say “Jerk.”
