    The Classic N64 Mini Thread

    Loved this too. Although in light of the subject matter, it does have zero chance of making the list.

    The Hot Topic

    Oh and one I did forget: Suda 51. Always have a lot of time for their output. Killer 7 being one of my favourite games ever and the best FPS I've ever played. Likewise, No More Heroes was a more enjoyable GTA.

    Flying in Mario has never been better than with The Cape. I thought the Flying Cap was among the worst Mario power ups for it's control scheme alone.

    The JRPG Thread

    In that case I think Rogue Galaxy would be more up your street than any FF.

    The Comic Book Thread

    It IS rhetorical within the context of this series. You answered that yourself. It is rhetorical because we don't know what Darkseid is to Scott or Barda. The Anti-Life Equation has been very context specific within DC. As in what it does depends on the writer. Grant Morrison gave it the definition you describe in Final Crisis, yet that is one of many. Scott makes a choice about what he chooses to believe by punching High Father, refuting his words.

    It does remind you how often we used to get royally screwed over when it came to game releases. NTSC vs. PAL and all that shite. I don't remember having any issues with controlling Banjo. I do recall have problems controlling Mario, getting him to do anything beyond the basics. Nostalgia aside, I remember the N64 control stick hurt, a lot.

    I did forget about Sin And Punishment. Largely because I never even heard of it before the Wii game. The Banjo comment is just crazy talk, DC. Put down the bottle! Never really been keen on Sports games, but I did adore 1080 Snowboarding. I even had a hat with it (a pre-order thing, perhaps?). It's a shame Nintendo didn't really keep 1080 and Wave Race series going with every successive Console release. I do recall a Wave Race sequel was released.. on something?

    I always felt Banjo-Kazooie was much better than Mario 64, in every way. However, other than Donkey Kong 64, I don't really know where the other Rare titles would stand regarding a Classic Mini console. Ideally Nintendo would find some loophole that would enable the titles licensed to that console to exist on the Classic, but I doubt such a loophole exists.

    Different context, Maf. But that did almost make me spit out my drink, so kudos.

    He punched Highfather because sometimes Perception is Reality. Believing a lie is often easier than admitting the truth. I did have to re-read #12 to appreciate it as an ending to the series overall. It was intended as a rhetorical question, Maf. 'Darkseid is'.

    I do love the Castlevania 64 games.. More so Legacy of Darkness than the first one. I know a lot of "purists" often turn their noses up when the series first made the leap to 3D, but who cares? Embrace change or stay in the past and rot, whatever floats your boat.

    The Comic Book Thread

    It was bittersweet, Maf and open to interpretation. It was either real or not, depending on the reader. It was never going to be a "happily ever after" ending. The preceding 11 issues should have made that clear...

    The Classic N64 Mini Thread

    I've always liked the oddities so prevalent on the system myself. Such as Space Station Silicon Valley, Body Harvest, Mischief Makers, Mystical Ninja, Fighters Destiny, Hybrid Heaven etc Another thing to bear in mind, given a limit of 20 games, what ratio to have Multiplayer vs Single Player games. Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Turok 1 & 2, Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, F-Zero, Smash Bros, Mario Party, PokéMon Colosseum et al To include all of those might limit the pool of Single Player games down to 5, at the most. Minus three for Mario 64 and the two Zeldas and what are you left with?

    An interesting thought occurs to me, in light of countless ports and remasters, should Mario 64 and Zelda OoT/MM be on the Classic console?

    I had a lot of affection for the Original Beast itself. Although only rumoured at time of writing, it is however a virtual certainty. So lets chit chat. What would you like to see? From hardware improvements, both from it's namesake IE What to do about the Expansion Pak?? Meanwhile also addressing quality of life upgrades over the previous Classic Mini consoles. The controls would also be an interesting issue. The N64 controller gave us the Rumble Pak, the GB game thingy and the Memory card port. Now obviously the latter is redundant now, but the other two have potential applications. Naturally there is also the question of whether the Classic system should have Four Controller support and how many would come with it? Lastly of course, the games you'd like to see. The Wish List. Naturally there was a reduction of the volume of titles from the NES Mini to the SNES Mini. Therefore if we spitball 20 games as an estimate. Bear in Mind some may be forever off-Limits due to licensing issues... But we're talking theoretical, so let your imagination run wild.
