I wonder all the time

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

Speaking of Bomberman 64: The Second Attack, there was a pretty good run of it at SGDQ recently. I didn't realize the game was so rare before the run, although I've certainly never played it. I rented B64 back in the day though.

Anyone played Bomberman Hero? I took a crack at it some years back and found it pretty enjoyable, although I didn't get too far and I've since heard loathing for it in the community.

Now, how about if Nintendo could release an N64 Classic Edition with 30 games this year for Christmas? I bet if it's up to Nintendo then that would be great. Maybe it would be released in September, October, November, December, or early 2020. But we will see about it, won't we? Because we are all retro gaming fans wanting to have this mini N64 console so that we can play games from our childhood again and again.

Old school games, retro games, Nintendo, SEGA, PlayStation, you name it! 😉👍

@BougieBeetle I've played Bomberman Hero. It's a pretty decent game, good for those who want a more linear 3D platformer instead of a collectathon. The main issue everyone had with it was that there was no multiplayer, which is the main reason people play Bomberman.

Personally, even though I like the single player mode, I do think they would've been better off giving everyone what they wanted by removing a few levels from the game (the last few kind of felt like filler IMO anyway) and adding a battle mode. It probably would have sold much better.

SGDQ? I enjoyed Hero, but prefer bomberman 64 and second attack... (If i can find it and not pay a kidney).

@Ryu_Niiyama Summer Games Done Quick, the charity speedrun marathon. You can find the old streams on twitch and reuploads on Youtube, if you're so inclined. They had a lot of really entertaining runs this year, of which B642 was one.

@RedderRugfish, ah, yeah that explains it! I didn't even clock the lack of multiplayer since I only touched it briefly. The main thing that registered for me was that you could actually jump (in a Bomberman game! What a concept!).

After my controller pak randomly deleted my 10 hour Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon save file (despite literally all my other files being intact), I bought a Dex Drive. Basically, it was a device made back in the day that let you transfer memory card files to the PC.

I got it brand new for just $10 because they only work on Windows 98 and nobody buys them as a result. But I've still got my old 98 sitting around, so it'll be nice to finally have this option.
