  1. I'm not a huge fan of the GBA so this was a difficult list to compile.. Golden Sun Metroid: Zero Mission Wario Ware Inc Mario vs Donkey Kong Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
  2. When I saw Mystical Ninja as the 10th entry I knew we were in trouble but I didn't realise just how much trouble until I reached #1 I don't even think Majora's Mask would make my Top 20 N64 games!

  4. Switch eShop Thread

    I'd love Top Gear Rally to get the same treatment as Turok and arrive on Switch with just a little bit of clean up in the graphics.. I love that game

    I started playing this morning It's still very early on but I'm definitely a little bit concerned that this is gonna be another Shovel Knight for me..
  6. I don't think I've even played 5 GBC games and any I may have played, such as Link's Awakening on 3DS or Perfect Dark, I haven't played for any more than about 15 minutes.. See you all in a couple of weeks
  7. It was hard enough narrowing things down to just 5 nominations without having to then try to select just 3 to vote for.. N64
  8. It was very close I've always said that Blue Storm is one of my favourite games ever and I played that several years before finally getting Wave Race 64 on eBay during my university days! If I had played it back when it came out and didn't have the nostalgia for Mario Kart 64 and all of the multiplayer fun we had, Wave Race 64 would have taken that spot.. but there are honestly so many games I hate having to leave out..
  9. It's almost impossible for me to narrow down my nominations to just 5 games for N64 as there's just too many games that I love for the greatest console ever made I'm having a bit of a struggle between my head and my heart due to certain games I feel maybe hold up better or I discovered after the N64 era versus the nostalgia of games I have nothing but fond memories of.. but here we go! - Super Mario 64 - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Goldeneye 007 - Banjo Kazooie - Mario Kart 64
  10. Remembering the Nintendo GameCube

    Looking back on it now, some of the choices made by me around the launch of the Nintendo Gamecube back in 2002 seem bizarre.. and yet I wouldn't change anything I've always been a Nintendo fan growing up thanks to the Super Nintendo and then being constantly blown away with the step into 3D with the Nintendo 64 and all of the astonishing games that came out for that particular system. My friends growing up, however, were never quite on the same wavelength! From teaming up with friends on the Streets of Rage on the Sega Mega Drive to competing in some fierce battles in ISS Pro on the PlayStation, I always seemed to be the odd one out with my love for Nintendo, a feeling that still persists to this very day. It was amazing to grow up with access to all sorts of different consoles spread across my friends who lived up my road and the pattern looked set to continue with my interest in the Nintendo Gamecube accompanying the desires of my friends to pick up a PS2. In the run up to the Christmas before the launch of the Gamecube, I had the opportunity to dip my toe into an SSX demo on the PS2 at my friend's house and just finding myself impressed by the graphics and DVD capabilities of the system (I still, in 2019, have never owned an actual DVD player that wasn't a part of a games console) Given my love for International Superstar Soccer and the upcoming Pro Evolution Soccer, something I knew my other friends were about to receive on Christmas Day along with their brand new PS2, a little bit of jealousy crept in as I knew the Gamecube was still several months away. It was then that I hesitantly asked my parents for a PS2 that Christmas, more in hope than expectation, but was to be left somewhat disappointed not to be joining in the next generation along with my mates. To be honest, I can't even remember what I received that year.. maybe a Hi-Fi! Anyway, with that opportunity gone, focus once again returned to the upcoming launch of the Gamecube on 3/3/2002, twelve days before my birthday. Having witnessed a VHS of several Nintendo Gamecube games, including some launnch titles, in the first issue of NGC after it's transistion from the wonderful N64 Magazine, I knew my heart was still with Nintendo and I couldn't wait to pick up the console for myself. In fact, given the reluctance of my parents to even really consider the PS2 several months earlier, I knew my best bet was to somehow save whatever money I could and purchase the console for myself. When Nintendo reduced the price before launch to £129.99, I knew my goal was more in reach that I ever thought possible! My saving was going really well (I believe I also had the cardboard GC money box ) but, despite this, I still cheekily enquired about the possibility of receiving an exceptionally generous birthday present from my parents in the form of a black Gamecube. If it wasn't to be, I had the money there to pick it up for myself.. I wasn't to be denied! My parents, however, did not disappoint! They went to GAME to enquire about the Gamecube only to find out that it has all been sold out.. apart from one person who did not collect their pre-order! And so, without my knowledge, the console would be awaiting me on the 15th of May. In the weeks before that, I recall a demo unit of the Gamecube in GAME that me and my brother had walked up to. Unfortunately, you couldn't play anything but I had always had an idea of what the controller might feel like from looking at pictures in magazines. Finally, we were able to grad a controller at this demo unit and it felt like it just melted perfectly into my hands. It was perfect! This increased my excitement levels even further! My birthday came around and I got up early in the morning before school to open my presents.. and there it was! I was so happy A black Nintendo Gamecube, 2 controllers and ISS 2 waiting for me to come back home from school to finally get to play it. That must have been a long day Obviously, if I couldn't have Pro Evolution Soccer, ISS 2 was going to be the next best thing and, to be fair, we had an awful lot of fun with it.. but what would I do with all of that money I had saved up? Spend it on some games, of course When I think about it now, there were some amazing games at the launch of the Nintendo Gamecube and if it came out today I know I'd be going straight for Wave Race: Blue Storm, Luigi's Mansion and Pikmin without hesitation. This, however, was not the reality as I just turned 15. With ISS 2 already there to provide our football fix, my brother and I decided that along with needing a memory card to save data, we needed a racing game. Burnout was to be that game. Again, we loved it and just a few days later we thought it was time to add just one more game into the mix. Super Monkey Ball was there to round of my launch experience and, as with the previous 2 games, amazing fun was had with this game too. I know there may have been more obvious choices to make when selecting games for the Nintendo Gamecube at launch, but I still wouldn't change anything. Things started out great and only got more and more special with each passing month and year
