An Absolute Mad-Lad is Bringing Ray-Tracing to N64 Games on PC

For those of us who grew up with the likes of the N64 and Gamecube, it’s really not difficult to enjoy the old games as they are. It’s how we remember them after all. Still, there’s no denying that these games are getting older with each passing day, and are thus looking more and more…

I’m Still Not a Big Fan of Super Mario 64

I don’t really like Super Mario 64.  There, I said it.  I understand that the game was a big deal for its time, considering it was one of the first 3D platformers ever made.  While that is certainly something to be admired, I never really had the best opinion of this game.  In fact, I…

Top 6 Worst Stars in Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 may have been a classic of its time, but that didn’t prevent it from being a major pain as far as certain stars were concerned.  I was able to complete the game 100% years ago, and I attempted the feat once more during my recent recording of the game for YouTube.  As…

Silly Scoundrels: Gruntilda

The Duck’s second silly scoundrel is another creation of Rareware’s, the rhyming witch Gruntilda and nemesis to the beloved bear and bird duo, Banjo and Kazooie! In this post, I’ll be focusing on her antics in the two main Banjo-Kazooie titles on the N64.  (I barely remember the handheld title, Grunty’s Revenge, and…there’s definitely not…

Silly Scoundrels: King K. Rool

The Duck’s first silly scoundrel debuted in 1994 with Rareware’s Donkey Kong Country.  This was the first game where we were introduced to Donkey Kong’s newest enemies, the crocodilian Kremlings, led by none other than King K. Rool, a large croc with a golden belly and a swollen eyeball.  Now that’s a name you should…

Nintendo 64 Games Are Coming to the Switch…At a Cost

By now, Nintendo Switch Online sports a hefty collection of old-school titles from the NES and SNES, leaving us to ask, “So where are our 3D titles, Nintendo?”  Well, we have finally received the long-awaited announcement that Nintendo 64 games will be made available on the Nintendo Switch.  At an additional cost.  Okay, awesome…wait, what…?

Dinosaur Planet: The Cancelled Predecessor to Star Fox Adventures

Those familiar with Star Fox Adventures for the GameCube should be well aware that this was not your traditional Star Fox game. In fact, it was much more akin to a Zelda game than a series revolving around animal pilots flying about in the vacuum of space. Well, that’s because Star Fox Adventures was never…

Uncanny Accounts: Majora’s Mask – A Creepy Compilation

It should surprise no one that we’re writing about Majora’s Mask once again.  As one of the darkest and most unique entries in the Zelda franchise, the game serves as a perfect source for unsettling lore.  Rather than discuss any one thing, though, I’m actually going to list several bits of lore from the game…

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Will Only Be Available for a Limited Time

Nintendo has recently announced a whole bunch of things that will be available for the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.  This includes making various Mario titles available on the Switch, a Mario Game & Watch, Mario-themed furniture coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in March of 2021, and even…Mario-inspired shoes?  Okay.  Ahem, you can…

Kirby’s Dream Land 3 Review

For the last ten years, Kirby’s Dream Land 3 and I have kept passing each other by, with no more than mere glances in the other’s direction before ultimately going our separate ways.  Whether in the form of a physical SNES cartridge or a quick download vie the Wii U Virtual Console, I have had…
