20-year-old Japanese Mario 64 interview finally gets translated

I find it hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the release of Super Mario 64. I was only eight years old and I remember being completely blown away with the graphics. The 3D was so new, utilized so well, and it gave me such a sen...   read

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 ...   read

Here's a fun behind-the-scenes look at Perfect Dark's development

I haven't played Perfect Dark since it released over fifteen years ago, so I hold it in my memory as some mythical, flawless creation. I thought I wanted to preserve that and never play it again, but then Rare had to go out and re...   read

A lost look at Rare's scrapped SNES project that eventually became Banjo-Kazooie

With the archival nature of Rare Replay -- a collection of games on Xbox One that spans the developer's entire history -- it's natural that the studio would be digging through a lot of old boxes lately. One of those boxes (proverbial ...   read
