A former Nintendo game designer doesn't believe the F-Zero franchise is dead. However, Nintendo's own design philosophies are likely behind why we haven't seen a new entry in the racing series in more than 16 years. Speaking to IGN , retired designer Takaya Imamura said that he doesn't believe F-Zero is dead at Nintendo, even with such an extended absence. However, he said that without a "grand idea," it's a difficult series to revive. The other games were fairly straightforward sci-fi racers, not featuring major overhauls aside from much better visuals when coming to different platforms. These days, that might not be enough. Nintendo isn't one to pump out sequels to games without some sort of hook or huge, innovative idea, and we've seen big franchises like Star Fox also suffer long inactive periods. In the past , legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto has expressed similar reservations for making a new F-Zero game, saying that it needs a new idea in order to come back as a … [Read more...] about F-Zero Isn’t Dead But Needs A “Grand Idea” To Return, Ex-Nintendo Designer Says

Monster Hunter Rise isn't coming to PC until sometime next year, but a few of us are already having a blast with it on Switch. It's especially great to see so many of the quality-of-life changes introduced in Monster Hunter: World, like load-free zones and streamlined sharpening, present on the Switch's first game in the series. Portable monster hunting has never been better, but some of us aren't excited about what Monster Hunter: Rise's Switch-first design means for its forthcoming PC version.

It's possible that Capcom will totally revamp Rise's PC version to be more … [Read more...] about Will Monster Hunter Rise be a letdown on PC?
