Keeping Track

LucasCersaine on Feb. 21, 2013

Today's Digital Nonsense comes to us from Starfox(which is owned by Nintendo as far as I know) and features the competitive natures of Fox McCloud and Falco Lombardi. I always got the impression that they competed over everything, so I don't doubt enemies downed would be among them. But Slippy presents an interesting point that's often glazed over in video games: isn't it assumed you're keeping score of killing these people? Think about all those poor guards in A Link to the Past that were just under mind control that you took down for rupies and hearts! YOU ATE THEIR HEARTS!! THEY MAKE YOU STRONGER!!
