I'm just glad there was one good thing to come out of that movie.

It was fairly challenging and the gameplay was fun and it has a good story that is told well through the cutscenes.
the gameplay though is a bit janky and the graphics looked pretty bad.
it's not really the game's fault, it's cause the N64 just had horrible graphics.
I wouldn't go as far to say the graphics are horrible but to today's standards they definitely show their age.

Both of them are fantastic and deserve "top tier game" status for the N64.

I've long held the opinion that Majora's Mask was the better game, and I'm glad that the 3DS remake exists to let people replay it and bask in all it's glory. I really love the sense of hopelessness there is as everything you work towards gets undone when you go back in time.
I plan to get the 3DS version. I've heard good things.

So, Steam is my main source of video games. I'm definitely more into the PC gaming than I am the console gaming, even though I own a Wii U. I do play it from time to time but not as often as I do the games on my PC. At the current moment, Steam shows that I have 77 games in my library, which I think is accurate. If you're curious about my Steam name/profile etc, you can get that in my signature or right here.

Anyway, i'm going to look through my library and see which games I play the most:
  • 7 Days To Die shows that I've clocked in 22 hours of gameplay. No surprise there. That's a game a friend and myself play whenever we feel like playing a decently made zombie survival game.
  • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth shows i've clocked 56 hours. I'm surprised it's not more than that, but the game really is as amazing as people say it is. I just don't find myself in the mood to play it as much as I'd like.
  • Borderlands 2 shows 19 hours of gameplay. That's still going up even today. I've yet to finish the game, but man I have been having a blast playing it.
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim shows 16 hours. Do I really have to explain myself?
  • Rogue Legacy shows 5 hours of gameplay. Same thing with Isaac, I would play it if I were in the right mood.
  • Team Fortress 2 comes in at a whopping 236 hours and still going up. Fantastic game. Great to waste a whole day on.
  • Last but certainly not least, Torchlight II at 19 hours of gameplay and still rising. I play to completely finish this game including all the achievements and side quests.

They were awful imo
Take FF8, that game at the time had visually stunning cut scenes no N64 game came close to.

Most N64 games looked very blocky and ugly.
I would say Ocarina of time its one of the few N64 games that don't look that horrible.

i remember traveling the open fieds on the horse and thinking the game looked great but some dungeons still looked blocky and basic as hell.

Let's Talk About...

part 1


Go ahead, you can call me a nerd all you want. I'm not afraid to admit that one of the things that I kept an interest in from my childhood is Pokemon. I love the games, I love the TCG (although I don't collect the cards anymore) and I just love the memories that go along with the entire concept. But I want to talk more about the games here than anything else. This will be in separate parts and will include my opinions / experiences with games that I have played.

First off, let's talk about the first Pokemon game I ever played:


Pokemon: Special Pikachu Edition

When I was a kid, maybe around 9 years old, I can't quite remember exactly, myself and my two brothers were asking our parents day after day for the Pokemon games that everyone else was getting. At the time, I had only known that the Red and Blue version existed, and so my younger brother and I decided we'd get the same ones because it'd be cool. As our birthdays started to near, our parents had been giving us our gifts on our birthdays and my older brother got his first. He had gotten a purple see through GameBoy Color with Pokemon Red to go along with it. My younger brothers birthday had come a few weeks later and my parents had gotten him a yellow GameBoy Color with Pokemon Blue. As I saw that both my brothers had gotten their Pokemon games, I was pretty excited for my birthday to come up. Once it came around, I saw a box that was wrapped that was about the size of a GameBoy Color game box. I had opened it from the back and i'd seen a yellow box, so I was shortly disappointed until I turned it over and realized it had been a version of Pokemon I hadn't even realized existed yet. I could not have been more excited because now I knew that my brothers and I had all gotten Pokemon games for our birthdays and we were ready to play them right away.

Now moving on to my experience specifically. The minute I started playing Pokemon Yellow, I was instantly hooked. I had seen the show before so I kind of knew what to expect, but in this game specifically, I had no idea they'd be starting with Pikachu as opposed to the traditional 3 starters for the first generation Pokemon games. Plus, seeing this really made the game feel cool:



I was quickly getting my team together and before I knew it, I was taking out the Gym leaders with my Pikachu, Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, and Mewtwo (ended up getting him later on). To me, I felt like I had the perfect team, until of course I get to the Elite Four for the first time and realize that I was nowhere near as ready as I thought I would be. As time went on, I started to learn what move sets work for which Pokemon and which Pokemon are weak to what, and such and such. I've seen pictures that my mom has taken of me where I've got my GameBoy Color with Pokemon Yellow in it. I think there are even pictures spread across a couple years and same thing, still the GameBoy Color with Pokemon Yellow. I was addicted to it, and loved it to death and I never wanted to put it down. But hey, what kid would right? I mean, back then those games were the ****, and they still are.

Unfortunately to this day, I have no idea what has happened to my GameBoy Color or my version of Pokemon Yellow. I still remember the day I supposedly lost it, and I looked everywhere for it. Of course, this was years later, other version of Pokemon had come out, and my interest in the original started to fade. It's just weird to think about that it could have landed in someone elses hands and they've been playing the crap out of it. What I would give to have my first copy of that game back in my hands though.

Pokemon Yellow is certainly not my all time favorite Pokemon game, but it's definitely up there for nostalgia sake. It's still one of the more fun games to play based solely on how different it was from Red and Blue, but still managed to keep that traditional Pokemon game formula that Red and Blue did very well.

Great idea for a journal Ki and a dedicated games one is needed on here.

I remember when Ocarina of Time first came out in 1998 and the hype surrounding its release was huge, it was probably the most hyped game of its time, luckily of course it was a classic. It came out not long after Final Fantasy VII another masterpiece of a game. At that time the N64 was lagging behind PS1 in terms of the amount of games that were coming out but it always went in for quality over quantity, luckily I had both machines at the time, but Ocarina of Time was a real saviour for the machine at that time.

Majora's Mask was seen as the weaker game of the two but I preferred it even more for its darker feel and it's my second best Zelda game after the Wind Waker.

I read once on another thread that you're a big fan of survival/adventure horrors, as I'm a bit out of touch on which ones to play these days, which do you recommend?

A few games I would mention are 7 Days To Die (it's in early alpha, but it's a lot of fun), DayZ, and H1Z1. All three of which I have played a lot of and have been having fun playing. 7 Days To Die is difficult for the fact that the more days you survive, the harder the game gets with the amount of zombies that come after you.
