The Nintendo 64 might not have had the massive library of games like the PlayStation did, but it made up for it with quality over quantity. Do you ever really need anything more than GoldenEye and Ocarina of Time? No. And with this N64 emulator on your smartwatch, those games will always be in easy reach.
Years ago GameStop gave up on classic gaming. They liquidated their catalog of NES, Super Nintendo, N64, PlayStation and Dreamcast games and I was left scouring flea markets for my retro gaming fix. Now the chain says they’re bringing old games back, but they’re being kind of weird about it.
If you've tried playing a retro console on a modern HDTV, you may not have liked what you saw — smeary, stretched images that are a far cry from the sharp chunky blocks of yesteryear. Luckily, there's a better way for purists to get a crystal clear image that doesn't involve buying an old CRT TV.
I still consider Goldeneye to be the most fun I've ever had with a controller in my hand. But I have to admit, as this 'in real life' mod illustrates, the single player game was incredibly frustrating at times.
Looking more Fisher Price than Nintendo, the guts of an N64 have been squeezed into the bright red handheld case by modder Bacteria, who spent four months slaving away on it devotedly. There's a 5-inch screen, built-in speakers...and rumble pak!
Last month, ZodTTD, the guy who basically pioneered game emulation on the iPhone, promised us an N64 emulator. Today, that's exactly what he's delivered, with a bonus: Wiimote support, via Bluetooth.
Forget the DSi XL, Nintendo should look to the past for its next handheld console. Or, just commission the modder-maestro Zenlock for a heap of portable N64s, so we can revisit The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in style.
Zodttd, the developer who brought us GBA4iPhone, has announced plans to release a N64 emulator for the device. But does the 3GS have enough power? Maybe.
Just how do some of gaming's famous consoles make their way into an x-ray machine?
Modder extraordinaire Ben Heck is growing disciples like Chia Pets, and his forum poster SifuF's new Nintendo Sixtyfree Lite-R is an incredible little portable N64. We're sure he's made the Heckster proud.
It's not just some unfounded stereotype that video game controllers have gotten more complex over time, just look at this fantastic chronological illustration.
This game console mod does things slightly different from older mods we've seen. Instead of taking an old console and shoving it into a smaller body, this guy made a universal body and modularizes consoles-in effect, turning consoles like the N64, NES, Megadrive, Jaguar, GBA, and PlayStation into insertable…
As apparently I'm the de-facto expert on all things cannabis related around here, I was asked to post about this N64 Controller/Bong mod. In my expert opinion, it's badass. I mean, it looks like there's some sort of tinfoil bowl apparatus where the thumbstick used to be, which is good, as if he was just smoking it out…
Not being well-versed in the areas of our penal system...our collective penal system... we had no idea that the N64 rumble pack was huge with prison tattoo artists. A maximum security prison guard recently wrote our sister site Kotaku, and here's what he had to say:
