Inspired by The Force Awakens, artist Vadu Amka decided to make a Star Wars console themed after the desert wreckage scattered all over the planet Jakku.
Let’s take a look at video games’ favorite scene from the Star Wars series: the battle of Hoth. Developers have been trying for over 30 years to get it right.
Is this practical? No. But screw practical.
Considering my only memories of playing the N64 were of playing in large groups and eating a ton of shitty food, this custom console build seems very practical.
Chris Gallizzi and Jesse Aragon from Hyperkin gave themselves a day to get an N64 controller working on the Xbox One. Mission accomplished.
We missed this earlier in the month, but the talented team behind the Dolphin emulator have done something very cool: they’ve got N64 games working on the GC/Wii emulator by running their virtual console versions.
Last night, the legendary purveyors of bread-and-cheese injection systems at Hot Pockets tweeted a photo of a bro playing a Nintendo 64 while another bro helped him eat a Hot Pocket. The tweet has since been removed from Hot Pockets’ timeline. Were they embarrassed about using a dated cultural reference like an N64?
“I think Banjo-Tooie’s the better game.” So says Kotaku reader BlackmanFord in a series of comments below the chat we published yesterday celebrating Banjo-Kazooie. Read his thread for some Tooie love.
People are pouring money into a Kickstarter for a spiritual successor to the 1998 Nintendo 64 game Banjo-Kazooie. Why? Because Banjo-Kazooie was a wonderful game and no mere Mario 64 me-too, as some detractors claim.
Belgian artist Vadu Amka completely covered a Nintendo 64 with a rock and moss motif to transform the console into an artifact from Hyrule.

Step 1: get a sweet setup like this. Step 2: drink. Step 3: love/hate your friends to death.
Ocarina of Time might be the first video game where I obsessively followed its development. It was a pre-cursor to games culture today where we pore over video footage, speculate and — for want of a better terms — get hype. But back then it was screenshots.
"Wait, why are you wearing me?" Such is the power of Kirby, young one.
Goblins getting you down? Tired of dying over and over again? Just sit down and take a load off! Don't worry, they won't hurt you!
Goldeneye 007, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 — all staples of the N64 that many of us have spent countless hours playing. Now let's watch this dude blaze through all three at once like it ain't no thing.
If you've tried playing a retro console on a modern HDTV, you may not have liked what you saw — smeary, stretched images that are a far cry from the sharp chunky blocks of yesteryear. Luckily, there's a better way for purists to get a crystal clear image that doesn't involve buying an old CRT TV.
