The Nintendo 64 (ニンテンドー64, Nintendō Rokujūyon), stylized as NINTENDO64 and often referred to as N64, is Nintendo's third home video game console for the international market. Named for its 64-bit central processing unit, it was released in June 1996 in Japan, September 1996 in North America, March 1997 in Europe and Australia, September 1997 in France and December 1997 in Brazil. It is Nintendo's last home console to use ROM cartridges to store games (Nintendo switched to a MiniDVD-based format for the successor GameCube); handhelds in the Game Boy line, however, continued to use Game Paks.

    • Are Amiibo the new Beanie Babies?

      The year was 1996 and everything was pure. Arcades were booming, the N64 had just been released, the first successful disc-based systems had emerged, and the world was a simple place. Then came along a phenomena. A collector’s dream. Something with no real value that escalated in price over night: Beanie Babies.

    …. Then the PlayStation and N64, Xbox and GBA, and so on until we’re caught up with the modern era of gaming. We’re two days away from the full launch of a new Elite game, which is weird after such a long time.

  • Koji Kondo shares music trivia about various Nintendo games

    … On Super Mario 3D World… Kondo: I created around three songs for that title, and they had some professional musicians come in and perform the music. I guess the takeaway is that they put so much of their own spirit and soul into the music, that it really exceeded even my expectations. I was super pumped over how well the music sounded…

Whoever lands the killing blow on the human gets to be the next human. It's a game of momentum, heartbreak, and dicking your friends over as you level up your hero and monsters…
