I remember the day, back in the wild times of the mid ’90s, when we were still amazed by Mario Kart 64’s whole eight character roster (Wario, playable? Wow!). Back then I’d rush home from the store as fast as the city bus would get me there (not very) – and pop my brand new shiny cartridge into the ’64. Boom! New game, product complete, fired up in all its early 64bit 3D glory. Two years later, that game would be just as was then – awesome. No patches required.
We’ve been having so much fun rounding up Fallout memes and illogical game moments, we thought Link deserved a turn.
Read on for the best the web has to offer for Legend of Zelda memes…
Ever wonder what it would look like if the open-world mechanics from Assassin’s Creed worked in the real world?
It had been brought to my attention recently that a remake of Goldeneye – the N64 classic – is in the works. It will feature Daniel Craig though. This project is something I intend to follow.
Mega Man 10 is coming out Mar 1 for the Wii. It is going to get a staggered release date with Wiiware getting it Mar. 1st, PSN on Mar. 11, and Xbox Live on Mar 31st. This is exciting news for retro game enthusiasts! Mega Man 10 will continue the setup established in Mega Man 9 which directly continues the action of the classic games.
There are some good looking games coming out this year for the Xbox 360 and the Wii. Not an exhaustive list, by any means, but these games are the ones sparking my interest at the moment. Here are some of the ones I’m excited for..
I have to confess it’s been a long time since I so thoroughly enjoyed a video game. Thanks Dave for getting me a copy of the new Super Mario Bros. Wii this Christmas.
For those who haven’t tried it, the new Mario Bros. Wii is classic Mario at its best; 2D running, jumping and stomping without all the camera angles we’ve had to endure in the latest games. No pretentious storyline with long cut scenes, just eight worlds of side scrolling fun (nine, if you can find all the goodies). I honestly felt like I was playing through a game that was built from the best elements of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World.
