Review: Turok 2: Seeds of Evil

Turok 1 and 2 played a pretty big part of my childhood. While the first game mostly started the trend of crazy first-person shooters coming to the N64, Turok 2 added multiplayer support with some ridiculous levels and weapons to up the ante...

Did anyone else regularly get scared by Nintendo 64 games?

The Nintendo 64 wasn't my favorite console. Even on a good day, it doesn't make my top five. And many of its best games don't hold up super well if you're running them on the original hardware. But, all that said, the N64 does warrant a spe...

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels...

Mario Kart 64 headed to Wii U in North America tomorrow

Mario Kart 64 is one of those games to make me go, "Wait, that wasn't already on Wii U? How?!" It's true! European players have had access to the classic friendship-ruining racer since January, but over here, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Well, unt...

Luigi's color came from graphical limitations

While it took Nintendo years to catch on to the fact, gamers have known for a long time that Luigi is the true lord and savior of gaming. He may play second fiddle to his brother, but we all prefer the slim, handsome scaredy cat over the ty...

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is now on Steam

Factor 5's 1998 classic Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D is now available on Steam. The arcade-style dogfighter is currently going for $10, which is a hell of a lot less money than I spent renting this over and over again at Blockbust...

I'll never look at Banjo's hips the same way

Rare is still making videos recounting what it was like behind the scenes on Banjo-Kazooie, and I'm still fascinated. Today, it's five (more) things we probably didn't know. As discussed in the video, the game's musical intro was originall...

This fan-crafted Deku Mask from Majora looks too real

While I wasn't huge on Majora's Mask as a kid, it did grow on me, just like a few other Zelda games. MasenkoProps seems like they're still pretty big on it though, and for good reason -- it has some of the best lore, locales, and ...

Mario Kart 64 on Wii U DOES NOT have ghost data support
