F-Zero X Video Tutorial Project

Posted by WMJ (Established Members) at Jul 17 2018, 12:59 PM. 3 comments

As a past champion of F-Zero X I have worked over 3 years (on and off) to put together a detailed video tutorial project for F-Zero X. I finally finished it all a few months ago :D

Basically these tutorials are for anyone interested in the game and is layered in about 4 levels of difficulty/depth. That's mostly why it was a lot of work to put together as it's designed for all players. There is a general moves and mechanics guide that is the basis of it all and then about 4 strategies per track demonstrated and explained in track specific tutorials. The basic level is really just the simplest way to defeat the staff ghosts for beginner players and the most advanced level is only for a handful of players that want to attack the time attack world records.

It was a lot of fun to share really all I know about the game after competing in it for many years.

Here is the full playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDcn_lBlLt0yx3vEEehi_aSbGLNBXDfYL

Enjoy!

Forbes: Now Nintendo Switch Has Gamecube And N64 Games Up And Running

The runaway train that is hacking, homebrew and potential piracy on the Switch isn't screeching to a halt anytime soon. In the wake of successful efforts by hackers to, among many other things, emulate the entire SNES Classic library and get full-fat Linux installations onto the handheld, self-proclaimed game modder and dataminer @_Mizumi is showing visual proof of N64 and Gamecube games running on the Switch. And in one case, running incredibly well.

On Twitter, Mizuki demonstrated N64's Pokémon Snap on the Switch, complete with working JoyCon controls. While it's only a 20-second clip, the framerate seemed smooth and devoid of any hitching or stuttering.

Pretty cool to see how fast the Nintendo Switch's hacking scene is going! Looks like it's going to take over the Vita as the ultimate portable emulation system for retro games. I'm tempted to go buy another Switch just for offline homebrew/emulation purposes. (don't want to get my account banned by the Big N)

This E3 1996 Treehouse Demo of Mario 64 really shows how mind-blowing the game was for the everyman

Posted by Rocky (Senior Members) at Jul 3 2018, 10:49 PM. One comment

Being three years old when Mario 64 released: seeing how people lost their bananas in the video when Mario started running 360 in a circle at 1:40 is so surreal and amazing. Super Mario 64 still blew my mind as a kid when I eventually got it with a N64 in 1999; I can't even imagine what was going through your guy's heads that grew up with the Atari/NES/SNES. The presenter describing the analog stick and controls to the audience like it's some alien foreign concept, boasting about the crisp clear graphics with perspective correction and real-time anti-aliasing...what Mario 64 revolutionized with 3D game design, fluid controls, camera systems, it's all just crazy how influential it was and still is.

This demo is such a great watch as a time capsule and landmark moment. I think we really take for granted how far we've come with technology in gaming. What was your experience with the game pre-release and post?

Currently I'm in the market for an N64 controller extension cable, but the problem is that there are so many. For those that have controller extension cables for your N64 controller, what had been the best and most durable brand? Thank you for your help! :n64:
