The Name's Bond, James Bond

So I brought my old Nintendo 64 back with me from Canada.... aaaaaand it's occupied most of my time since. The only game I could find with the system is 007 Goldeneye...




I forgot how fun this game is! Really, it was so ahead of its time.... and was the predecessor to all the games like Halo and Call of Duty, etc. When people bring out their XBOXes and Playstations I don't feel like much of a gamer, but I love the old systems!

Jess and I have had a Super Nintendo for years.... With Super Mario World, Donkey Kong, and a bunch of other games.... The older games just seem like more fun to me.... I don't know, maybe it's nostalgia. In any case, Nintendo 64 is about as advanced as I'm interested in going!

Well, I beat Goldeneye after 2 days (on the easy setting, I'm still working on the hardest setting). I decided to look for some more games.... and there are so many I used to play when I was younger... 1080 Snowboarding, Mariokart 64, and a bunch of others. My search for games led me to a shop in Columbia, Tennessee, and here's what I found...

More games than I know what to do with!!!! I went for the 3-for-$20 deal. Not a bad deal.

Looks like I found a hobby to get me through these next 2 weeks off! And when we get back on the bus, I can bring my N64 into my bunk. YES.....

I do have newer systems...but they don't beat old school game consoles. Even if you can play music and DVDs on them. haha.

Awesome! I'm a sophomore in college and when I get together with my friends (we made this a weekly thing), all we play is Mario Kart64 and Super Smash Bros. (possibly a little ahead of your time).

And also, another nerdy kind of question: What guitar/amp combinations did you use for the Gloria EP? I honestly believe that cd has some of the best guitar tone I've ever heard. Plus, I think it's some of the most musical stuff I've heard in a long time from anyone (especially Alleluia and I Heard the Bells.).

Yea Good o'll N64. Can't beat some of the games. Super Smash Bros. first remake wasn't so good.SSB
Mele. But I really do like the one for the Wii. I would never tell my bro this but I think that Golden eye is better than halo 1. I think it stands as the best shooter game for the system.

i've heard that perfect dark is a rival for best shooter on the n64.... i just got the game and you can't play much without the n64 expansion pack (which i've got coming in the mail)... but so far it looks stronger than 007. better graphics, runs smoother. looks good so far!

oh and dusty: i think it was a marshall jcm 900, an ac30 and an orange tiny terror.... if memory serves....

jonathan said...

follow-up for dusty - some of my most favorite tones are the 2 tracks from "...Is My Friend" that were produced by Steve Wilson. I used my JCM 800 a lot on them...

incidentally, we're doing our whole next record with Steve.... :)

I love the Nintendo 64! The only games we have for it are Pokemon Stadium, Pokemon Stadium 2, Pokemon Snap, and Mario Party 2. Yeah... we like Pokemon. I know a really fun game for the Nintendo 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Even though we bought that game on our Wii, it's really fun.
