@Ryu_Niiyama Good choice. Still one of my favorite games. Seeing as you mentioned that title, I looked it up on Custom Game Cases, the second website I linked to. I apparently missed that they deliver boxes with artwork included, so you've got the complete packaging, all it needs is the cartridge and the manual/booklet:
https://www.customgamecases.com/online-store/1080-Snowboardin...
But at $4 a box, that's gonna cost quite a bit, if you want to buy those for all your games. They DO look good, though...

As for the weight of the game boxes: I don't know how many games you have, or wanna put in these kind of boxes, but it's not gonna affect any normal cabinet/closet type of furniture piece in any overly negative way, unless your planning on using thin strips of plywood for shelves...

But the Amazon link does mention weight, for the 10 box bundle, although it seems unlikely to me, because it says that the entire bundle weighs in at a pound, which would mean that each box weighs around 50 grams, which seems somewhat unlikely. Maybe they weighed the bundle in its packaging or something.

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!

@Zelda1433 Same here. It also was my third console.

Now playing:
Octopath Traveler, Bravely Default.

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'm not saying anything against your recommendation as Replay has excellent games in it, but I think it's pretty sad that the best retro n64 experience to be had (short of the actual thing) is on an Xbox.
