Nintendo 64 shopping spree! If you notice a 0.1 spam decrease it's because I'm playing
Star Wars Shadows of the Empire
Star Wars Rogue Squadron
007 The World Is Not Enough
Lylat Wars (Star Fox 64)
1080 Snowboarding
Extreme G
Body Harvest
Wipeout 64
Hybrid Heaven
Perfect Dark

This with a Rumble Pak, Expansion Pak (hooray, better graphics!), Controller Pak (about time I got one, can't save progress without one in several of the games I have) and a new controller (yellow).

I used to play Extreme-G 2 as a kid, the multi-player modes were great, I owned my brother at tank mode. Star Wars Shadows of the Empire is worth getting just for the first level (Hoth). The flying is really fun. The rest is pretty boring.

Can barely wait for it to arrive.

I once played Legend of Zelda on N64 at some distant cousin's house. Never seen him again, but made me want a N64 so badly. Never got it though. Maybe I'll bring my beloved SNES back to life one of these days.

Oh this makes me miss my N64.

From that list, we (my brother and I) had Rogue Squadron, The World Is Not Enough, and Perfect Dark. I've played Shadows of the Empire and Lylat Wars, though. You need to hunt down GoldenEye, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Ocarina of Time, Smash Bros. and Mario Kart.

We gave our 64 away to our much younger cousins, who didn't appreciate it and traded it in for a couple of PS2 games. Biggest mistake of our gaming lives. :<

I have GoldenEye and Mario Kart, both are good games. I've played a lot of Smash Bros. on my computer using an emulator (where I annoy my sister by spamming Pikachu's thunder attack), so I'll definitely hunt that down. I have a friend that's a Conker's Bad Fur Day fan. Unfortunately it's expensive, but I might get it when my economy brightens.

They traded N64 games for PS2 games?! Wow, that's... sad.

Aw, hell. Where'd you manage to find an expansion Pak, TWINE, and PD?
I'd love to get my hands on genuine, N64 versions of those. (And DK64, Ocarina, Majora's mask)

Enjoy your cheap ripoff\knockoffs.

The sellers have received positive feedback from hundreds of users, and no negative. The descriptions for the items stated clearly what's original and what's not (the "Controller Pak" clone is the only thing not approved by Nintendo). If the sellers were ripping people off, you'd expect negative feedback.

N64, loved that thing, I miss my old one, I always played LoZ:OoT or Super Mario 64. Even better was my old NES and Super NES, Miss playing those things. Super Mario Bros. 3 Remains my favorite Game of all Time.

Most of my youth was spent in clock town. Good times.

Just found my n64 recently but it's missing a plug so I can't play it :[ Starwars, Extreme G, and Zelda were all awesome as hell.

I never got why Starfox 64 was called Lylat Wars in Europe.
