    N64 games didn’t age well outside of a few, SNES did much better. The n64 games that feel good to play are Mario kart, Mario party and paper Mario. I’m sure there’s a few more but I bet Ocarina of Time will be a pain in the ass.

    I could see that, but I also feel I'm good at taking a game for what it would have been worth during its time. I enjoy replaying older titles, so I'm sure it will be fine.

    Super Mario 64 has been a pain at times. The camera and the movements can be a burden.

    That’s going to be the worst part about Ocarina of Time. Camera controls and slingshot.

    It’s plenty playable. I got through a bunch of it without too much headache earlier this year. Only didn’t finish because life stuff got hectic and forgot what was going on once I had time again. A little wonky, but it’s still fun.

    Just got done with immortals. Thought it was funny and worth the $15 I got it on sale for. Beware if you’re a completionist though, the map is littered with objectives, and it gets tedious by the end. Just stick to the story and do enough chests/puzzles to get the skills you want and your axe leveled up.

    Started Hollow Knight. Already in love.

    They added Mario Golf 64 to the expansion.

    They need to add a lot of SNES rpgs. FF3/Chrono trigger/Mario rpg/Secret of Evermore. I’m playing Earthbound on it right now. Mega man soccer would be fun.

    Their products are so inconsistent. They have a lot of those on that mini snes they sold a few years ago. Same with the Wii U shop.

    Just give me DK 64 and I’ll be happy.

    Finished Mario. I think that’s the first time I’ve done it with all 120 stars.

    11 year old me was addicted to this game back in the day.

    It starts you out with only 4 playable characters and you have to unlock the rest of them by beating them in a match play round. I had forgotten how dickish this gets later on. I lost a hole to Wario last night because he holed out from 100 yards for eagle.

    I played the Gameboy version as a kid and loved it. Never played the N64 version.

    I started it the other day and beat Luigi relatively easily, considering it took me a few holes just to figure out what I was doing. Not sure how much I'll play it in the near future, now that I've started Ocarina of Time.

    Not sure if this belongs here, but I happened across it on Twitter and couldn’t not share it:



    If this is what Elon as Twitter overlord means, then I’m all for it.

    Turned on the Xbox for the first time in months on Saturday. I had been itching to play some Apex, and it didn't disappoint.

    Just fired up “a plague tale” and already regret it. So brutal, but I’m invested now.

    Anyone playing the Returnal dlc?

    I never played the game, but it’s on my list. Good, I assume?

    I’ve been playing Elden Ring the last few days, finally. Seems alright

    I still can’t decide if I want to try it. I like high dark fantasy but I don’t really enjoy frustrating difficulty

    Returnal is the most fun I've had with a video game in years.
