Cutting up the game boxes to make them fit in a case seems like counterproductive to a box protector.
Might as well just get a scanner, scan the box and then print out the copy.

@ogo79 I actually do have a Japanese copy of a Castlevania game, but I forget which one it is. Probably the earlier bad (worse?) one.

@KingMike there are no bad castlevania games.
ever.

@ThanosReXXX Ah, so that’s where Blockbuster dumped all the N64 cases. I was wondering where all the stock from our old Grapevine warehouse went to 😂

@AlohaPizzaJack Which ones? The plastic covers, the one size fits all boxes, or the custom game cases?
Probably not that last one, seeing as that's their own product...

@ThanosReXXX The cases that hold N64 games. They've been around. Glad someone still found a viable market, though. The custom covers is what sells it

@AlohaPizzaJack The custom game cases are from Blockbuster originally? Or the ones that Amazon are selling? If it's the former, then Custom Game Cases are basically lying through their teeth about making "their own" console specific cases, which would be rather pathetic, if you ask me...

@ThanosReXXX The design for CustomCases is very similar. Different strength of plastic, I can tell. The company didn't used the yellow channel locks back then, so the inside edges didn't have all that reinforcement, though.

I love the N64. While I played the NES and SNES as a kid I didn't own them (had a Sega instead). N64 was the first system I truly wanted and asked for from my parents. My best friend owned one and we spent an entire weekend using a guide trying to obtain as many stars as we could in SM64. It was at that point I knew I needed one in my life.

All the memories playing SM64, Goldeneye, Mario Party 2, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart 64, Pokemon Snap, Donkey Kong 64...

I didn't play Ocarina of Time in its heyday unfortunately but thanks to the 3DS I finally played it start to finish in 2011 and it became (and still is) my favorite game of all time. I've beat it many times on N64.

To me the N64 was the perfect multiplayer machine. I was in middle school when I had it, and many a day was spent in Goldeneye multiplayer matches, or facing off against my friends on a Mario Party board. Miss those days a lot!

Just bought an N64 off ebay. Can't wait for it to arrive! Never owned one before!

@gavvybiggs you won’t be disappointed. It’s a great system with good games

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

@ReaderRagfish The only one coming with it is an F 1 racing game! I deffo want to get Pilotwings, MK, and Mario 64 but other than that I am open to suggestions!

I just want games to fire up, get straight into a game and have some fun! Rather than loading, updates, logging into such and such servers, finding a match like the latest games and systems!

Zelda1433

@gavvybiggs Some suggestions - Diddy Kong Racing, F-Zero X, and Beetle Adventure Racing if you like racing games. Banjo Kazooie and SM64 for platformers. I personally love Mario Party 2, Pokemon Snap, and you have to get Goldeneye. If you're into Zelda games, obviously Ocarina and Majora's Mask.

I will always recommend an Xbox One and Rare Replay to every single gamer for some polished N64 goodness. I have a RGB-modded N64 too. Diddy Kong Racing is a must-have for anyone with a N64 since it's one of the best games and it's not available anywhere else (oh well, on DS with low resolution, compressed audio and touch controls).

@Zelda1433 Such good taste. Similar memories here.

I just finished a playthrough of Banjo-Tooie for the N64 (give or take 14 hour completion time), first time in many years, and it 100% holds up, my dudes. I used original hardware too so Jamjars' rhymes actually make sense, unlike XBLA. Shamelessly, I used the Nestking cheat from the very start, which massively cuts down on frustration. It's in Jiggywiggy's Temple so I say it's fair game! Grunty Industries is still by far the worst level, but thanks to foreknowledge it wasn't too bad. I'm still stunned by the ambition of the world's architecture and interconnected nature, something no other 3D platformer has ever accomplished in quite the same way.

What are y'all's thoughts on BT? Better than BK?

@BougieBeetle I first played Banjo Tooie after playing Super Mario 64 and Donkey Kong 64, and I loved it.

I think the thing I liked about it was instead of making more stuff to find, they made everything harder to find. In Banjo Kazooie and DK64, I felt that so many collectibles could be found just by wandering around the level for the first time and they honestly felt like freebies. It was never challenging getting enough items to progress. But in Banjo Tooie, you had to be more clever because you could fully explore most of the level and get almost all the notes, but only find 1 or 2 Jiggies.

Also, the level design is masterful. As frustrating as Grunty Industries could be, whoever designed it clearly put a ton of time and effort into making you have to experiment to get around, and making an average sized level feel huge. Everything is put in the levels for a reason, everything has a purpose and there's not much filler.

Overall, it was a game that took me a while before I 100% completed it, but I loved it. Besides Mario 64, it's probably my favorite 3D platformer on the system (which is saying a lot).
