Star Fox mod fits perfectly into Team Fortress 2

first_imgIf there has ever been a character known for being extremely annoying and unlovable, it’s Slippy Toad from Star Fox. If there has ever been a cast of characters more beloved than the lovable goofballs from Team Fortress 2, then we haven’t seen it. While Slippy Toad may ever join the ranks of cartoon-smooth men, Star Fox and Team Fortress 2 have met in an unlikely mod available on Steam.The mod, created by Steam user NarryGewman, is currently in a pre-alpha stage, so as you can see by the video below, it’s missing a lot of little nuances that really make a mod soar, such as an environment and details.So far, it appears as though the mod simply allows you to fly and shoot in a sparsely populated map, though the players do seem to have individualized jet streams. Similar to the PS3’s Starhawk, this mod puts the Arwing and TF2 character models on the same map, allowing the ships to speed by the humans.If you think the pre-alpha stage looks a little rough, don’t worry, as NarryGewman noted that the mod “will be optimized and stuff.” As for a Star Fortress release timetable, Gewman notes it’s “coming whenever it’s finished,” so you can expect a swift release, and full of optimizations at that.Though there isn’t much detail on the mod, the version does look fun, and if the human characters get anti-air weapons, the mod could take off. Maybe we’ll even get Slippy Toad wielding the Heavy’s minigun at some point.last_img
