ClayFighter N64 instruction manual going for over $1000

You know what game series no one ever talks about? ClayFighter. I remember years ago competing in a Blockbuster challenge for it (Blob for life!), and how much of a big deal the Nintendo 64 game was, but alas, it's kind of a ...

Club Nintendo offers Mario 64, Super Metroid, and more photo
Club Nintendo offers Mario 64, Super Metroid, and more
by Chris Carter

If you're a Club Nintendo member with 150-200 coins, you're free to go explore the Club's website and nab one of the following four games: Super Metroid (Wii VC - 150 Coins), Kirby's Pinball Land (3DS VC - 150 Coins), Mario 64 (Wii VC - 200 Coins), and Urban Champion (3DS eShop - 150 Coins).

Note that the Wii Virtual Console games can be redeemed on a Wii U using the Wii emulation application.These are all recycled, but hey, I'm sure someone hasn't grabbed them yet. Note that Super Metroid will be part of the $0.30 Wii U Virtual Console promotion from May 15th until June 13th.

As for recommendations, everyone needs to play Super Metroid -- it's a no brainer. Kirby's Pinball Land is one of my favorite pinball games to date, but it won't blow you away if you're not a pinball fan. Mario 64 may be dated, but it's one of my favorite 3D Mario games, and my personal favorite behind Galaxy 2.

Urban Champion...well...it's Urban Champion.

Pokemon Snap gritty reboot channels Jurassic Park

From the makers of the Harvest Moon gritty reboot comes this new spoof based on Pokemon Snap. Really though, all I could think about while watching this is how great a new Pokemon Snap would be on the Wii U. The GamePad would be perfect thanks to the cameras and accelerometers in it!

My ultimate gaming tradition of Old School Day photo
My ultimate gaming tradition of Old School Day
by Taylor Stein

Gamers are a diverse breed. From PC aficionados and console fanatics, to retro devotees and casual admirers, there is no one-size-fits-all model of videogame hobbyist. Though we possess many differences, like game preferences, level of devotion, and platform of choice, we can all unite under a common flag of shared interest. There is one event, however, that my family celebrates. A monthly tradition that I believe just about every gaming fan can appreciate. I call it Old School Day.

Old School, Retro, or Classic Day as the name suggests, is a celebration of your personal gaming past. This holiday of sorts should not be compared to the feeling on Christmas morning or the anticipation of New Years Eve, Old School Day is simply in a league of its own. Whether you have been hooked on virtual adventures since childhood, or if you're a current-gen convert, the first experiences that characterize an activity like gaming are special and worthy of remembrance.

Exactly how the gaming festivity is commemorated is completely up to you. There is one stipulation, however, simply that a hectic work week, argument with the misses, and any other stressor of life takes a back seat for a few hours in pursuit of videogame nostalgia.

GoldenEye 64 comes to life in this live action take

YouTube filmmaker Michael Green and friends got together to pay some respect to GoldenEye 64  with this live action take. Sure, it may have not aged well but I can't help but smile whenever I think back to Rare's first-person shooter.

NES-themed N64 controller is the gamepad of the gods

I nearly creamed my jeans when I finally received my gold N64 controller from the Nintendo Super Power Supplies catalog. And that was nothing more than a simple, single-tone paint job. Had it looked anything like the above N...
