Nintendo 64

Where would modern gaming be without the Nintendo 64?

I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that I have a bit of a soft spot for Nintendo. I own every Nintendo system, every Mario platformer, and nearly all of the Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and other classic franchise games; not to mention countless Nintendo related tchochkies. (My family is so proud.) My love for Nintendo is fueled not just by nostalgia, but also by admiration. W...

Welcome to the Infendo Presents: The History of Nintendo! Join us as we chronicle Nintendo from their humble hanafuda beginnings, to the dominance of the Wii and DS and beyond! To this point in its history, Nintendo has made almost no poor business decisions, almost to the point of clairvoyance.

N64 games are on their way to the Wii U Virtual Console

That’s right, folks, Nintendo 64 games are officially coming to the Wii U eShop. A subtle change to Nintendo’s Wii U Virtual Console page hints at “the future addition of titles from the…Nintendo 64.” The only caveat? We have no idea when this will actually happen. I mentioned this was a subtle update, which suggests that the launch of N64 games on Wii U is still a wa...

Review: 1080° Snowboarding (Wii Download – No, N64 games aren’t on the Wii U eShop yet!)

It would seem I’m not the only Infendo staff member who has recently had 1080° Snowboarding on my mind, as our very own Colin included the game and its successor (1080° Avalanche for the GameCube) in a list of “The Forgotten Franchises” (forgotten by Nintendo, it would seem, but not by us!). Now the game is currently available on Club Nintendo at a cost of 200 coins, and I feel t...

YouTube Spotlight: Xbox One vs Nintendo 64

I remember a time when YouTube was in its humble infancy. It has been interesting to watch the video-sharing site go from there to its current status of the single most popular video-sharing site on the web. If you’re like me, you’re a YouTube regular, using it to watch everything from the latest in-the-millions-of-views baby videos to the most specific and niche Nintendo fan videos ou...

Game Freak: Pokemon Snap on Wii U or 3DS a Possibility

  In an interview with Polygon, Game Freak Director, Junichi Masuda discussed the possibility of Wii U getting its very own Pokémon Snap title. Fortunately, we didn’t get corporate speak. Matsuda was a bit more straight-forward:  “Personally, I really love the Pokémon Snap game, but it wouldn’t be interesting if we just released the same game, how it was before, for the Wii ...

Mounted plasma on the wall, who’s the biggest fan of all?

Over the years, Nintendo fans (especially children of the 80s who were growing up right as the NES was released) have amassed quite the impressive collection of systems, games, controllers, and other peripherals. Some would call this business I’ve got going on here a veritable shrine to gaming greatness. When I got to thinking about it, I realized that I’ve never met another female wit...

Youtube Tuesday: Super Smash Bros Synchronized Smashing!!

I didn’t know you could do half the stuff show in this video. Makes me want to crack out the Original Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 64 and start crackin’ the analog stick around. [Thanks for the video tip Chiki puffs]
