So how different is the original Goldeneye from the Wii version? I unfortunately never played the original, but I played the Wii version and... :I I, uh, wasn't too impressed. I can see why it's popular, but was the 64 version any better?
My friend's control was messed up though...maybe that's why I didn't enjoy it too much.
Anyway decided not to get Total Carnage. I'll just pick up Smash TV if I ever come across it.

@Retro: Actually its not that different IMO. Yeah the graphics are early blocky polygons but what do you expect from that era. Gameplay wise its pretty similar to the Wii version but the levels more closely resembled the movie. I would put it on par with other FPS of that time like Doom so if you were a fan of that you will like GE.

Doom was pretty cool. I'll give this a shot then. Besides it apparently goes really cheap on eBay and it'll be great to bust out at a party. Maybe this Halloween. I'll get it, hopefully it will be fun with multiplayer.

OMG yes multiplayer in GE was the sh*** back than. Everytime I went to a party over at one of my friends house we would always end up in front of the TV playing GE on N64 for hours lol.

Yeah Retro, I had a PSX so didn't play much N64 but what little I did play the majority was spent on GoldenEye 64 multiplayer. Hope you enjoy it at least half as much as we did!

The N64 was a major fat King Hippo of a let down aside from a dozen or so classics. It was completely ground breaking in the beginning with Super Mario 64 which completely blew me away, along with the higly unique controller and amazing analog stick. Then you've got the Zelda's, StarFox(With the introduction of the Rumble Pack), Golden Eye 007 ect ect, but the variety compared to the PSX was completely lacking....no sprite based titles to be seen, which funny enough would of aged timelessly compare to the 64 bit 3D titles which most rocked a below 30 frames per second frame rate. :p Zelda did for example...eek!

My brother had the N64, while i had the PSX...and aside from the nintendo exclusives i was in gaming hell....I couldn't even stand Diddy kong's racing or mario kart 64. Sure the transformation into 3D seemed pretty rad... But these titles completely lost that magical look, the detail and charm of their previous SNES Counterparts. Part of me wishes that the N64 consisted of 50% 3D games and 50% 2D 64-bit sprite based games to please both audiences, but instead we got all 3D! I mean serously, all of those 2D SNES classics have aged PERFECTLY, they're pieces of art and they're just timeless....Imagine what we could of gotten 2D-sprite wise with the power of the N64!?.....Too bad we never got a taste of it, while instead we got blocky and fuzzy wuzzy blurry textured simplistic 3D graphics....While for the time were great, but even then for me they lost the magic of the SNES titles, and those crummy frame rates were the craptastic Fry Guy icing on the turbo Cake. :o

As big as of a nintendo nut as i am, i hated the N64 gen for the most part, it let me down and for me it was beginning of the videogame decline for me...The GCN was a step up imo, and the Wii officially got me back into gaming. That aside, the playstation gave me my fix here and there and it was great to see 32 bit Sprite based tiles such as Mega Man 8, MMX4, Castlevania SOTN, Rayman(espcially!) Tomba ect ect....One of the reasons why i totaly prefered the PSX!, plus we got Resident Evil 1-3 and many more unique titles....

The N64 let me down enormously....yet i need to revisit some a few or so of the titles on the Wii's VC for kicks. :p
And does anybody remember Glover?LOL Glover was the shniz! haha. Anyways, many of the N64 and PSX tiles have aged poorly, but NES and SNES games have aged perfectly. There's nothing worse than a barren simplistic ugly below 30fps 32 bit 3D video game. :p

NES > SNES + Wii > GCN > Galactic Star Man Twinkies > N64

1080 Snowboarding holds up rather well, as long as you're not someone who demands realistic physics in a racer. On the contrary, 1080 is aggressively arcade oriented in its presentation and your most skillful attempts might be upended by exaggerated contact with a piece of scenery. Its rigid approach to steering takes some adjustment, but the payoff lies in the feeling of mastery when you expertly carve your way down a perilous descent.

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.

1080 on the N64 was pretty great I'll admit, it blew my copies of Cool Boarders 1 & 2 for the PSX completely away. :p
They physics and grindage ripped Cool Boarders to shreds. Still, i never really cared for Snowboarding and i lost interest pretty quick. And I'll never forget how pissed off I was when South Park was exlusive to the N64.....regardless of how crappy it was, which i found out after renting it. :p

How is Sonic Adventure DX: Directors Cut? The most of played of Sonic Adventure 1 or 2 is a demo of SA 1 on XBLA, but I thought it was really fun. I know this game has extra content, so is it worth it?
