N64

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.

I’m talking here about classic PS1, N64 and Dreamcast titles, the stuff every retro gamer’s dreams are made of (bear in mind I am only 21, apologies if this isn’t retro enough for our older readers).

  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D - preview

    …This is part of a Majora's Mask 3D preview over on NWR... In the end, it doesn’t seem like Nintendo dumbed down the game, but rather identified the places where options were unnecessarily obtuse. The main complexities of the original are intact, but the annoyances have been reduced or removed. The game looks better than ever, better than Ocarina…

There are plenty of people who do get the series though, and they love every minute of that craziness. As one of Nintendo’s newer (remember, it’s only been around since the N64…

  • Majora’s Mask: N64 vs 3DS Comparison

    … Whoa buddy – Majora’s Mask sure has aged, hasn’t it? But y’know I don’t find the N64 graphics terrible to look at. Maybe it’s because my eyes have, like, seen it all (and by all I mean I grew up with the NES and beyond) so to me it’s like, “Eh, I’ve seen this before and am used to it.” What about you? The 3DS version has, of course, smoother…
