As you can see, the Time article has been nuked,. It claimed that Nintendo will unveil the new Star Fox for Wii U during its E3 2014 broadcast, which due to start at 5pm UK. You can watch it here.

The article called Nintendo’s new Star Fox a “rethink,” and said it will be revealed alongside “unusual” Wii U games from Shigeru Miyamoto.

Speaking with TIME, Miyamoto said, “We originally began working with Star Fox back on Wii, and we had a small group of people experimenting with it for many years, maybe about six years, but we didn’t find an idea that really brought that together for the Wii.

“So instead we moved experimentation to the Wii U using some of the same assets. It’s been maybe 6 to 10 months that we’ve been experimenting with it.”

Miyamoto added that the game is, “at least a year away.”

Apparently, the new Star Fox features morphing vehicles, and control is a blend of motion and GamePad stick inputs.

    “Project Guard & Project Giant Robot” (Codenames for the “unusual Wii U games”) what is with all these “project” names?

    A part of me has always been tempted by a Wii U but this E3 may just convince me if this is true. Also the Master Chief collection means a Xbox One this November too. God I gotta start saving.

    @DjCowHerder Wii U’s not a bad machine. It still just needs more games. I’ve been having fun with it on and off since launch. Smash looks ace too :D

    And now the article is back up!

    These days, animal mascots feel weird. I think it’s because I’m all too aware of the furry porn it spawns.

    I’m also seriously considering a WiiU, i’ll need both a pricecut and Zelda release date announcement first though.

    Welp, that’s an idiot’s fallacy. I mean, everything has porn.

    Rule #34 of the Internet: If it exists, there’s porn of it.
    Rule #35 of the Internet: If there is a subject matter to which rule #34 does not apply, porn must be made of it immediately.

    And this rule has continued to be true, with porn and slash-fiction of just about everything. Not to mention that hentai regularly plumbs depths of depravity that go far, far beyond anything I’ve seen furryfolk do. So, this raises the question of why furries are singled out for this treatment as a group of people.

    The answer is easy.

    The herd doesn’t understand them, therefore they’re scared of them.

    Furry is a very individual thing, it means something different to every furry you ask, and what is and isn’t included in furry is different according to each person you ask; whether furry includes ponies is different depending on each person; whether furry includes were creatures has various opinions; robots; even anthropomorphised planes. It’s a conglomerate of individuality.

    However, the herd doesn’t grok how everyone can have their own opinions as to what furry is. That’s not how the herd works! The herd has a brand, they create fan-fiction for that brand, and that brand has very clearly defined rules that everyone must obey, collectively. Each brand creates a collective of herdies (herd-like people) who’re unable to process things for themselves.

    Trek fans, for example, have even been a source of annoyance. Why dress as a klingon every time, why not create your own species? I’d ask. Or perhaps why is it that both the fans and Roddenberry support equality of race, but not equality of gender? The gross misogyny of the Star Trek fanbase is intolerable. See: The treatment of Captain Janeway for no other reason than she’s a woman.

    And I get considered as less of a fan for asking these questions or thinking these things. Yet in the furry fandom, asking questions and having your own opinions is welcomed. That’s something that doesn’t exist in any other fandom. In other fandoms, uniformity is encouraged, even enforced, so furry stuff can look chaotic and patternless to those who aren’t acquainted with it.

    This chaos is confusing and disturbing. Less intelligent people expect uniformity because it’s easy to understand, and furries are the least uniform group of people I’ve ever met. And that’s actually fun. I enjoy that. I like seeing all the kinds of creativity that furry brings to the table, without ever restricting people or forcing ridiculous rules upon them just to make less intelligent people comfortable.

    Another element of this lack of rules is that furries don’t care what other people do with the label — it’s a no rules system, after all. It’s almost like anarchism, in a way. Sure, you’ll have a few people speaking up, but in general I find that furries are mature enough to accept that this is just human nature. And human nature includes sexuality, so some people are going to bring sexuality to furry, just as people have brought sexuality to anime, Star Trek, and so many other things.

    I don’t need to even prove this. Officially licensed Spock/Kirk slash-fiction exists.

    Sexuality is everywhere, but it’s most notable amongst furry because, again, it isn’t uniform. There’s no one telling them how to do it, or what they can’t do. And despite this lack of rules, there’s a general feeling of respect that you won’t find amongst otakus. There’s a general disliking of misogyny, for example.

    So the only reasons for anyone to single out furries are anti-intellectual ones, of course. This just shows the lack of intelligence of the person who’s making the claim. Everything, everything you could name has had porn made of it. As I mentioned, rule #34, but modern day furries are respectful enough to keep their porn on sites meant for it.

    And at least when furries make clean stuff, they keep the porn out of it.

    Shame I can’t say the same for Nintendo and the Metroid franchise (and the ongoing treatment of Samus Aran) on either count. :P Zero Suit Samus is fap material in plain sight.

    Point made.

    Poop, tags. I will keep goofing those up! Point stands though that there’s more porn in the Metroid series than in clean furry stuff. And the clean furry stuff is more sane than even ‘light’ otaku hentai shit. Soooo… yeah. Attacking furries is just basically making a public statement that you’re afraid of their individuality.

    A lot of people in this modern world of ours are scared of individuality. It really is like living with the Borg.

    Er, and the non-clean furry stuff is more sane than otaku stuff, rather. I mean, honestly, have you ever been exposed to hentai? If you have, that’s a double-standard right there. :P
