SNES Classic wishlists? So two thousand and late: I'm gonna scoop everybody and write the 30 games I want to see on the Nintendo 64 Classic, which not only doesn't exist, it isn't even rumoured to, and probably won't. Check and mate.
Yooka-Laylee captures all the good and bad of a Nintendo 64 platformer. It doesn't just take the gameplay. It also takes the urban legends as well.
Yooka-Laylee is a bright and enthusiastic throwback to classic 3D platforming. It is adventurous and full of discoveries. It is silly and irreverent, never taking itself seriously. But it also wears out its welcome fast, spiraling players into a ceaseless collectathon full of frustrating puzzles, technical difficulties, and aimlessness. It has brought back the best of 3D platforming, but also the worst.
On February 4th, 1999, one of the greatest hoaxes in video game history began. The Zelda fandom was shock by a player claiming to have found the Triforce in Ocarina of Time. Ariana Almandoz, a gamer from Colombia, had all the details, but she wasn't quite ready to share them with the world. Through vague hints and convincing screenshots, she lead the fandom on a wild chase for Zelda's legendary treasure.
A while back, speedrunners believed that they had achieved a near-perfect completion time for Ocarina of Time, that nobody could beat the game much faster than 18 minutes and 10 seconds. Two years later, the time has been shaved down to an incredible 17 minutes and 24 seconds, and it's all because of a trick that lets runners pull a bottle from nowhere.
Some time ago, the "Impossible Coin" was discovered in Super Mario 64. It took 18 years to finally collect. Mario 64 guru Scott "pannenkoek2012" Buchanan recently discovered a new, unobtainable coin in Tiny Huge Island.
