REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Hey all, just sitting here watching some Sunday night football thinking about the good old days of the N64—totally normal, right? Anyway, let me know which titles are you personal favorites from this epic Nintendo era.

Mine are:

Donkey Kong 64 (Not quite a new DKC, but the next best thing)
Super Mario 64
Ocarina of Time AND Majora's Mask (Man, I loved that game)
Super Smash Bros. (Duh)
Goldeneye
Gauntlet Legends (So many hours spent on this one)
Conker's Bad Fur Day (Because... why not?)

Oddly enough, I was never a huge fan of Mario Kart 64. Always preferred the SNES classic.

No, never Pokemon Snap.

I loved the Mario sports game for the 64. Tennis, Golf. Just good games
Gauntlet was/is amazing.
Blitz. There is no game as amazing as Blitz. Best buddy vs buddy game.

Oh wait, forgot about the Wrestlemania games. These games were perfect. No more, one shade away from a Street Fighter game, wrestling games for me...ever...again. Just ridiculous matches with tons of back and forth.

Hmm.

I had to look this up to make sure it wasn't the same as the one I remember loving. It's not the one (I was right with Bomberman 64) but it does look rad.

My sister and I played Bomberman 64 a ton! The single-player was like isometric puzzle/platformer and the multiplayer was more classic atomic man. Good stuff. Even the AI bots were awesome.

Yeah. Bomberman Hero really differed from the normal bomberman gameplay, but it was a fun 3d platformer.

I really liked Bomberman 64 too and spent many hours playing the multiplayer. Just didn't bother mentioning it again.

Ahhh...

Diddy Kong Racing
Mario Kart 64
Super Smash Bros.
Starfox 64
Goldeneye
Goemon's Great Adventure

I want to add Bomberman 64 to the list, but I'm not sure my feelings about it now are the same as they were back then. It's sort of on the fence, I guess.

And hey, I'll admit that I really enjoyed Pokemon Snap. I never owned it, but I would go over to my -younger brother's friend's- house to play it! It's so cute, right?

There was one wrestling game I would play when my older brother's friend came over, but I have NO idea which one it was, or what series or whatever it was from. I don't know if I remember enough about it to figure it out.

I wish I had Gauntlet.

Ogre Battle 64.

Best RTS on the system.

And as a guilty pleasure, Buck Bumble and Blast Corps.

I'm going to have to go with:

Star Wars Rogue Squadron
Jet Force Gemini
Golden Eye
TLOZ Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask
Banjo Kazooie
Star Fox 64
Perfect Dark

Fyi if you type in Halifax in the cheat code menu in Rogue Sqadron you get the milenium falcon.
