Last month, a speedrun for collecting 120 stars in Super Mario 64 went down in history for being the first run to ever go under a time of 1:40:00. It was a record that took years to achieve; some people didn’t think it was even possible. Last weekend, that legendary record got beaten twice in a span of a day.
This weekend a speedrunner who goes by Cheese broke the existing record for beating Mario 64 with all 120 stars with a time 1:40:05. But his goal was to come in under 1:39, something he might have achieved if not for one of his spectators spamming a text-to-speech bot.
Ura Zelda was originally supposed to be an expansion for the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that would add new new dungeons to the base game. It was never completed though, so naturally there’s an entire community of fans based around trying to revive it.
Sometimes, developers put stuff inside of a game that players are never supposed to see. Such was the case with the original Paper Mario, which apparently had a bunch of dialogue that was not discovered until very recently.
Some time ago, the “Impossible Coin” was discovered in Super Mario 64. It took 18 years to finally collect. Mario 64 guru Scott “pannenkoek2012" Buchanan recently discovered a new, unobtainable coin in Tiny Huge Island
A Nintendo 64 emulator was briefly available on Xbox One earlier this week, but Microsoft yanked it from the store today. Sad news for people who yearn to play Paper Mario on an Xbox.
For over ten years now, a group of fans have been recreating GoldenEye’s multiplayer on the PC. Last week, the latest version of their efforts was released.
On June 23, 1996, the Nintendo 64 first went on sale in Japan. Twenty years ago! Think about that.
People poured 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.
Here’s a great way to trick people into thinking the N64 is capable of running new PC games, without using any emulators. Modder Istartedthewar has hidden a small PC inside an old Nintendo 64 and has nine images at this link that show what’s inside. From the outside, it looks like a white Nintendo 64 console, but…
With just under 300 games, the Nintendo 64 has one of the smallest libraries in Nintendo home console history. Even the GameCube, potentially Nintendo’s worst selling console to date, produced 200 games more in its lifetime. But even with such a limited number of titles, the N64 still has a handful of games that are…
Link first passed the Death Mountain Crater on his way to the Fire Temple in Ocarina of Time, but it was a lot more blocky and a lot less particle effect-y back then.
Marshall Clark made this N64 console last year. It’s not actually made of wood, but through a careful application of paintwork (and some airbrushing), he got it looking pretty damn close.

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.

Chris Gallizzi and Jesse Aragon from Hyperkin gave themselves a day to get an N64 controller working on the Xbox One. Mission accomplished.
