“Trukk not Munkey!” was the cry of fans as they rallied against Beast Wars when it debuted in 1996. But over its three seasons of clever writing, original series easter eggs, excellent voice acting and one heroic sacrifice it became one of the most beloved animated series in Transformers history. It’s a pity its video…
At long last, someone finally put Mario 64 characters inside GoldenEye 007.
There’s no more playing Super Smash Bros. for the New Orleans Saints, at least while NFL play-offs are underway.

Diddy Kong Racing for the N64 was never able to escape that long shadow cast by Mario Kart. While the game got a remake for the DS, it never got a true successor. And if we’re being honest, it probably never will. Fortunately there’s a fan video to help fill the void left by its eternal absence.
It was a Christmas miracle of sorts. On December 25 Ryan Gibbs beat his previous world record speedrun for the Runway level in GoldenEye 007 with a time of 30 seconds. Hours later he did it again, this time in 29 seconds. Gibbs’ feat is one of the most stunning achievements for an N64 game whose speedrunning community…
Last year, YouTuber pannenkoek2012, someone who knows more about Super Mario 64 than most people ever will, finally found a way to collect a star on the level Watch for Rolling Rocks without fully jumping.

Dam is the first mission in GoldenEye. For fifteen years the fastest anyone was able to complete it as 53 seconds. Bryan Bosshardt set the original record back in 2002 and people have only managed to tie it ever since. Yesterday, Karl Jobst made history by finishing the level in 52 seconds.
While there are a lot of great custom designs for the Switch popping up every week, the Funtastic N64-inspired ones are my new favorite. Nintendo started releasing translucent colored variants for the N64 back in 1999 with the release of Donkey Kong 64. What console mods currently have you excited?

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.

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…
