828th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Nintendo 64/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: DMA Design Publisher: Take Two Interactive It feels like the Nintendo 64 era was the high point of the 3D action platformers – your Super Mario 64s and Banjo Kazooies.

827th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Zed Two Publisher: Ocean/Infogrames Time for our next Nintendo 64 title of the batch. Wetrix has always been an interesting entry on the list – as much a tech demo for water physics as it’s a puzzle game using them. It’s […]

826th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Sometimes, going into a game, you know it’s not going to be great.

760th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Finishing my Rare Replay games, Blast Corps feels like an odd dead end. It was built to be a building destroying game, and so that’s what we’ll be doing. We apparently have a variety of vehicles to work […]

729th played so far Genre: Flight Simulator Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Nintendo EAD/Paradigm Simulation Publisher: Nintendo I played Pilotwings about four years ago, a SNES flight sim with some unusual craft and an interesting set of missions – a bit simple now, maybe, but impressive for the time and with a […]

663rd played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Sure, we have plenty of racing games – early on it was an easy genre for multiplayer, and it’s something people still love – but few take place on the water and I swear even less use […]

659th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Rare Publisher: Rare I’m not sure I’ve mentioned our Rare Replay purchase before, which is perfect for this blog as well as easier access to a bunch of classics.

645th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Left Field Productions Publisher: Nintendo The original Excitebike game isn’t on the list.
