Nintendo’s original Mario 64 game ran at 320×240 at 30fps, and only 20fps in some areas. Now, a modder has figured out a way to get the classic 3D platformer to run at 60 frames per second without negatively affecting the game’s physics.
Super Mario 64 is a classic game. It was a lot of fun. How can you make it even better? Well, you could play the game in first-person perspective. Nintendo ROM hacker Kaze Emanuar has done just that, giving the N64 game a completely different feel.
Super Mario 64 is still considered one of the greatest video games of all time. Its combination of great 3D platforming and innovative control and camera scheme was pretty groundbreaking when it first came out back in 1996.
Last year we heard of a Super Mario 64 fan who’s trying to remake the game in full HD. Programmer and 3D animator Erik Ross never set out to accomplish such a gargantuan task, but he managed to recreate Super Mario 64‘s first level in 1080p on his own using the Unity Engine.
Erik made the playable replica to demonstrate his Unity-compatible character controller.
Remember the days of Game Genie and Gameshark? It was so awesome to be able to cheat and have superpowers or extra lives. Just add the adapter onto the cartridge and enter some codes and just like that you hacked the game.
So you’ve finished some of your favorite game more times than you can count. You know all the shortcuts and can even finish them in one sitting. What’s your next challenge? If you’re YouTuber KarlJobst, you play and finish three Nintendo 64 games.
Nintendo’s “enhanced remake” of the legendary N64 launch title Super Mario 64 was a Nintendo DS port that added new characters, game modes and more. With his remake, YouTuber Aryoksini is going to improve at least one aspect of the game: its graphics.
Even if you thought that your footwork in your favorite dancing game was awesome, it probably pales in comparison to Vicas3, who managed to complete the entirety of Super Mario 64 on the N64 using only his feet.
Like Grand Theft Auto and other sandbox-ish games, Super Mario 64 encourages players to dick around instead of defeating Bowser for the nth time. Unable to resist man’s urge to dick around, two Japanese gamers came up with a challenge on one of the levels of Super Mario 64: trigger the 1-up mushroom and collect all 8 red coins before the 1-up mushroom gets to them.
You know what goes really well with Left 4 Dead? The Mushroom Kingdom. It’s genius! How did it take so long?
Bright colors, blocky environments, and hordes of raging infected running around among the zombie-like goombas.
This insane looking N64 has to be one of the most creative video game casemods I’ve seen in quite a while.
When I first saw the photos of this thing, I actually thought it was some sort of wedding cake.
