Cool Outrun collection jake, you think you are missing any?
@Tokyochojin: Thats Last Blade right? I remember playing the DC version of it and MOTW after playing them on a NeoGeo emulator, and i was really dissapointed.
LB looked a right mess for some reason and MOTW had small sprites and delayed voices on the moves as they were streamed when needed off the disk. :/
Anyway, checking through the thread i noticed a lack of n64 goodness, so heres a few of mine.
Super Smash Bros
I got this from CEX, and to this day it remains one of my most expensive import buys. >_
This was of course before everyone started shopping for games on the net, but i remember seeing previews and reviews of this game in NGC magazine and i just couldnt understand how the game would work from the pictures. But when i saw it moving on the CEX screen, and that awesome intro both me and my brother looked at eachother and coughed up the cash between us.
at Kirby vs Mario in a Ryu vs Ken SF:Zero 2 in a grass field stylee. Ill try and find a video of it, its well ace.
Played this game so much in multiplayer and single, and i remember always trying to guess who the secret characters were on the end of the character select screen. Could only work out Luigi.
Mew Two, Nes and Falcon totally threw me. ;p
Great game, overlooked by loads of people as being a good fighter simply because its got Mario in it. But imo, i enjoyed the updated Smash Melee more and think overall its a better game. But when this came out first, i adored it, and all my gaming mates were jelous that i had it. ;p ....they later all got it for £20 when CEX started selling off all their ninty import stock cheap, but we had all stopped playing by then. ;/
Love the box art for this, its like a comic and the flaming japanese text make it look all that much cooler. :ninja:
I had the Pal version, but seeing this up for sale i just had to have it because of the beutiful box art. The only game i have ever bought just on the strength of its box art btw! Not like i make a habit out of it. ;p Think i paid £20 for it, well worth it.
From the PAL version though, i never got round to finishing it, but i really liked the battle system as even though it was turn based, you actually had interaction which helped land or cause more damage by timing button presses.
The Yoshis singing.
I got this from CEX too along with a N64 Passport for £25. Wasnt the game i was expecting after being such a huge fan of the snes Yoshi's Island, but i still found it fun. Especially when you had to just go round and eating only Melons, the game became much more of a challenge.
Although, there was no denying that the boss battles and the fun i had in the original were not present in this. Also, the fact that there was no baby mario removed an added fear of losing a life. You also didnt have that many levels to go through, there were 6 worlds, but you only needed to do 1 level from each world which made you replay and select levels later on multiple playthroughs.
But the game looked beutiful with its own style of patchwork worlds and its pseudo 2D\3D baddies.
If you look at the box carefully, you can notice that the yosh's have stitches.
Good game, great art style in game and artwork wise.
Ive got a few more JPN N64 games, and frankly the box art, manuals and extra bits such as moves cards (see thumbnails) that came with the game just pissed on the poor Pal versions. Also, the plastic trays seemed to be more durable than the cardboard ones which i always used to manage to crush. :/
