It all started with Aladdin and Sonic on the Mega Drive, then Mario arrived with his triple jump and high octane kart racing on the ENNNNSSIIIXXXXTTTYYFFFFOOOUUURRRR. The rest is History. Also Banjo Kazooie. And N64 Magazine. And Beetle Adventure Racing. Awesomeness.

YoshiTails commented on Feature: The Making of Rocket: Robot on Wheels:

The N64 was awesome for quirky originals. This, Silicon Valley, Glover.

I vaguely remember some kind of arced aiming system in Robot: Rocket on Wheels. I remember having a blast playing it but actual moments slip my memory.... maybe a YouTube let's play will refresh!

YoshiTails commented on Official Nintendo Magazine Announces Closure i...:

Still fondly miss N64 magazine - its quality was unprecedented. Bought ONM couple of times this year... bits of it are ok though some of the reviews carry a kind of immature writing style that's hard to explain.

This news surprises me - for some reason I thought the official magazine would always continue. But then there's the internet and Wii U's comparatively limited success...

When all is said and done RIP N64 Magazine and 90s Rareware - they were a duo that gave the best memories in videogame comedy and creativity.



YoshiTails commented on Nintendo 64x64: Space Station Silicon Valley:

My friends hated this game but I loved it. So different, original, varied and charming. Occassionally got a little frustrating but you just kept perservering trying every combination of weird animal functions



YoshiTails commented on Nintendo 64x64: Body Harvest:

I believe this was made by the folks who went on the create Grand Theft Auto 3. It's primitive but all the open world nuts and bolts are there. More a Space Station Silicon Valley man myself though ;)



YoshiTails commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Planning To Release Amiibo F...:

So these amiibos are like... trainable pokemon but for smash bros? Is that a fair comparison? Not sure how significant the content will be. Will it allow someone who is struggling to just wipe their opponents off the floor? Will it be usable against folks with wiimotes? And for them, too bad. Many questions!



YoshiTails commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ca...:

@Christoff I think this holiday is a real possibility... Happened with Mario 3D world last year, right?

Whatever happens it's HD Zelda. It will be incredible. A shame there will be no audience reaction in the digital event with zelda reveal on the cards... it's a special atmospheric moment lost.



YoshiTails commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ca...:

As an analogy, if the Zelda series were a world famous band, Majora's Mask is like the wildly experimental album the fans love.

It was my favourite Zelda experience all those years ago while playing it - just because it was so creative and inventive. I'm not sure if it is my favourite Zelda game of all time - in fact I'd struggle to choose one.

Having the masks back would be great, the scope for metaphors, meanings and identity transformations is endless.

Why not just go all out and call it The Legend of Zelda: Mask of Time? ... On second thoughts that's too much!
