Mario Kart 64 Hotlap Thread
Whew!! :wacko:

I really thought i was a gonner this time! I've offically wore out the thumbstick on my Yellow standard... the same controller i've used since the beginning.
I don't know if it's just me, but it doesn't want to do what i tell it to anymore. Time to start fresh.

Got it MADE?
In the process of putting this thread together, i forgot that i had the Daiei controller as well. >_<

Thanks for the info! I will add your example with your credit.
If it's okay, i'm going to try and turn it horizontally.

Got it MADE?
Thanks Kart,
i know what you mean by "Genuine Spare Part" - i would not have thought to check that avenue. Very good to know! :yeah:

Hello! I'm Jack!
Hi and welcome Jack.

You made a great backstory!
I'll tell ya a funny story...

I ended up selling some of my original collection to Rick's Video- a local vg rental store 15+ years ago. Then several years later, it became a day-care center.
I am now trying to track down some of the original promo items they once had!
I have some leads, but regretfully, a lot of time has passed.

My point; is that it's never too late to appreciate! :yeah:

Got it MADE?
Yes that is correct Bam.
It should be safe to say that all NTSC N64 controllers are MADE IN CHINA. :yeah:

Watcha Listenin' To?

Got it MADE?
Hello and welcome. Ever wonder where your N64 controller is made? Or why some are made in different places?
Let's find out!

It is a very small detail in the front of every controller that is overlooked more often than not.
I've given this topic much thought and discussion with certain members here after i noticed some slight differences in my controllers. Some were MADE IN CHINA, and some were MADE IN JAPAN.

I'll start with with the most common and known example. The japanese Mario Kart 64 bundle controller.

Second, is the e3 1997 Starfox64 championship controller.

If you want to know what makes these controllers real? - Here it is!!

Third, is an Nintendo Merchandising Inc. (NMI) Employee issued N64 controller- and owned by former employee Deborah P.

What does this all mean? What better place to find out! One thing is for sure, they are certainly different than normal NTSC controllers.

I believe this thread needs time to grow, so feel free to discuss. If you have any controllers that are MADE IN JAPAN and have a good camera, please post them so we can make a resource legend for them here. :yeah:
What other MADE IN JAPAN controllers are out there??

@DeeMoney,
Yeah. It's a good show. I should have mentioned that. X_D

Cool to see fellow tri-state natives. :yeah:

Crazy weather.

How rare is this? Competition game bundle.
Wow...
The peculiar thing about the whole thing, looking from the outside, was the same exact item picture. But the takeaway here should be that the seller has more of them to offer! :yeah:

Right?

What is your favourite Timesplitters game?
^_^

Movies and Television
Just watched the new season of The X-Files...

If you did not enjoy the 2008 film, i feel sorry for you.

It melds both the time passed, and everything that has led up to this event, with 1990's precision!
The X-FILES is back!!!
I can't wait for tomorrow's episode.
