Ultra 64 lives!




WOW, now that is retro. I remember seeing some screen shots of the Dolphin video and thinking how incredible it looked way back at the beginning of 1995. Having games that had full 3D movement and no pixels when you got up close to walls was way ahead of the competition at the time. It seemed Nintendo was going to be an unstoppable force.....until the cartridge format messed everything up. The Nintendo 64 seemed to be about technology and graphics, where the Wii is all about fun and how you control the games. Nintendo sure has changed. For the good.

This is 'retro'? How old are you? Sheesh. I have teenage friends who remember the N64 launch.

And heck, Nintendo has always been about fun and gameplay. Ever heard of Mario 64? Ocarina of Time?

Sit down.

Hahaha, I'm 26 my friend and I've owned every one of Nintendo's systems.

In my opinion, this is a very retro video in the sense that the graphics being shown were considered mind blowing for the time.

Retro=look how far we've come since then.

Stand up.
