Nintendo 64

Video: The Legend of Zelda as an angst-filled 1980s movie

A big jar of hearts for the creators of this fan-made trailer for tackling five of the big 1980s teen movies. (The Breakfast Club, Say Anything, Sixteen Candles, and two others.) Post a comment if you know the names of the last two movies.

Video: New Mario Bros. Movie Trailer

This particular video really hits its mark. Part tribute to Super Mario Bros., part tribute to Grand Theft Auto and completely awesome. As an homage it captures some popular Nintendo catch phrases and mixes them in with altered non-Nintendo catch phrases. My favorite part of the video though is that frequent sad sack and third wheel, Luigi, is particularly badass. Though clearly the second in command in The Brothers Mario, he's not the pathetic, attention-seeking sibling we see in other fan videos.

Video: Gran Turismo 5 vs. Mario Kart 64

Even without a side-by-side comparison to Mario Kart 64, Gran Turismo 5 just makes kart racing look boring.

Video: If games had super-easy mode

In honor of Brad's gaming brick wall blog post and the comments that followed, here is College Humor parody video. Would some of those classic games have been as revered without the legendarily tough stages? You be the judge.

Video: Goldeneye 007 (N64) vs GoldenEye 007 (Wii)

Want to make your Wii graphics shine? Put them next to Nintendo 64 graphics.

Seriously, in one frame I was looking at a long black "thing" from the Nintendo 64 version of the GoldenEye 007. And I only realized it was a helicopter because I had the volume turned up and could hear the sound of whirling blades.

Fans of the original should take a look as it would give you pause. After all Rare isn't going to make a HD update, Nintendo doesn't want to make one and Activision holds the James Bond license. If you want to get an update to the Nintendo 64 classic, you probably can't do better than this remake.

Richard takes on the Internet: Why I think Perfect Dark is better than GoldenEye

Perfect Dark Box Art

I've always felt that Perfect Dark was superior to the original Nintendo 64 GoldenEye 007 in just about every way. However, a recent poll from this site concluded that most of our readers favor the James Bond-inspired shooter over its spiritual successor. I fully acknowledge that GoldenEye was a landmark title in several ways, mainly in breaking the Doom mold of "just kill everything on the map" and beginning the trend of more tactical shooters we see today, such as Half-Life 2. However, Perfect Dark built on those early achievements in such a fashion as to eclipse its ancestor in more ways than one.

What happens when Mario fan forgets to take his meds?

A guy in a go-kart, on a highway, swerving through traffic, tossing banana peels in front of cars in adjacent lanes... You'd have be nuts to attempt this... or you could be none other than everyone's favorite French practical joker, Rémi Gaillard—I don't know who he is either, but he does a mean Mario impersonation.
