REALLY I DIDN't know that this remaster wasn't going to be 60fps, pathetic all games play/control much better with a 60fps framerate and if anyone thinks that a remaster from an older game is OK to be anything less than 60fps you truly are clueless.I mean how many games now have we seen come out and been given the remaster treatment to 1080p/60fps and they're ALL run much better for it this is shockingly lazy and slack.

@Other_Dave well thing is ive gamed on my N64 NTSC using several TV's some old CRT's and i never see any borders top & bottom even looking on You-tube you can see the capture in most vids is full screen using the N64 version.

Why is the NTSC 60hz version got black borders around the top and bottom of the screen because when playing it on an NTSC N64 plays in full screen 4:3 on a 1080p plasma very annoying as i was about to buy it, it looks like the old crap PAL port which was notorious for being really clunky and having huge black borders.

@Bass_X0 ill agree with that, all PAL games are noticeably inferior to NTSC in all honestly but Waverace 64 was shockingly bad for a PAL port extra slow and clunky and plays like a dream on an NTSC machine, what an amazing looking title for a very early release on the N64 stone cold classic i reckon.

@Phantom_R I have to say i Fully agree this game back when it came out was received and reviewed highly it was especially renowned for it graphics/sound music etc and the game design was exceptional, clearly from the 5 people i knew who had this game it was always spoke of as one of the very best games on the DS including myself as i owned around 60+ well rated titles and this was top 5 so honestly this review politely put is laughable. Absolute minimum this should of got is an 8/10 and thats towards the low end.

@BestBuck15 Well said i love the way Nintendo makes games (actually lately thats not true anymore either, Mario tennis anyone) but their eco system is the worst as usual i do my best to not supporting it and ill vote/march with my feet and just move along, My respect/regard for this company has plummeted over the past few years now it has to be said.

PLEASE DO NOT UPDATE THIS SITE and make it BRIGHT and GARISH like so many others have done and had the community complaining as it hurts the eyes and isn't a pleasant viewing experience, PLEASE TAKE NOTE.

XyVoX commented on Video: Watch This Amazing Nintendo 64 HDMI Mod...:

The Purple Monster S-Video cable that is a Hi end quality cable screening/shielding/OFC etc is the best cable for the N64 picture quality as it actually outdoes an N64 running an RGB Mod with a normal quality scart cable. Also point of note is to say that putting said S-Video cable into my high end cinema amp which sports a HQV Reon-VX scaling chip and then outputs to 1080p through HDMI completely cleans all blurriness/jaggies from the picture which actually smooths out framerates where games were once jittery, eg parts of Banjo Tooie.

Not quite sure i understand this 'Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water (Nintendo / Koei Tecmo, €49.99 / £39.99 with free initial download) - Unlike in North America this download release is also accompanied by a physical retail limited edition' anyone ?

Gonna have to get The Swapper is meant to be excellent getting 9/10 reviews almost everywhere and considering it more closely resembles the PC/PS4 version im sold kinda interested in Thomas Was Alone also for just £2.20.

I can confirm that Mario vs. Donkey Kong on the GBA was one of my all time favourite games actually a few mates would also agree back in the day on that really good design mechanics and fantastic presentation. Personally i play all of my GBA games on my GB Player on my Gamecube and most games actually look ok when blown up to 50" on my Panasonic plasma, i still have most of my cart collection such a quality games library on that handheld its ridiculous.

Im sorry but this is clearly a 10 as a standard release for the MD let alone the 3D update and attention/options etc M2 have put into it 9 isn't right at all.

Surprised that Nano Assault EX for 3DS isn't getting more attention one of the few 9/10 indie games for 3DS seems the price when released £12.49 which is brilliant in of itself as its an updated version of the retail cart its now going to be £6.35 so half price on Thursday, curiously not sure when/where this £8.49 price came from as its currently showing in the eshop.

As is the case so often i would of picked up Citizens of Earth but noticed its a cross buy title for PS3 & Vita if only devs offered the same for Nintendo platforms i chose that.

Have this on mobile devices and other Flick Golf games from Full Fat and they're all really fun to play, one of the few games ive managed to play with others on a mobile device personally i'd give it 7-8/10 as its alot of fun to play.
