Nintendo 64 / First Post

I figure that I've got to have enough to say to provide a few minutes of insight into my thoughts every once in a while. Might as well do a blog since it's something that's always interested me. I'm also going to talk about whatever I am interested during the time of posting, whether it be music or a movie or a book that I'm reading, a game, whatever.

Anyway today I want to talk about the late and the great Nintendo 64. I grew up with this system as a kid, I remember being able to rent these from Blockbuster. That's something that's just unheard of today, where can you go out and rent an Xbox or a Playstation? Seriously, if you know that would be interesting.

Anyway, growing up we never really kept our gaming systems, we used to sell them to fund for the next upgrade, Sold our SNES for the 64, sold our 64 for the Gamecube. It's a damn shame too, because it's only now that I look back and wish that I still had them.

My friend introduced me to the Flea market near our houses and it was there that I re-picked up the black 64 box and a few games. It was like half of my childhood came flowing back, all the great memories of getting blisters from Mario party, and being enraged from dying in Super Mario 64.. and playing the disappointing Castlevania games..

I'm only playing, but really, Starfox 64, Paper Mario, Yoshi Story, these were all amazing games at the time of release, and I'm excited to hear that they're re-making a lot of them for the 3DS. That's really the selling-point for me.

  4. If you haven't yet, you should try out Project 64, graphics become amazing and there are many fan made texture packs to improve them even more. Though I miss N64 controller, I got it to work with xbox360 one, playing Ocarina of Time for the 6th time
