Hi all,

After 19 or so years pining after one, I finally have my holy grail!

Wanted to join a community where I can share my nostalgia or playing friends n64s and winning Pokemon Stadium tournaments at Burger King establishments (well, just the one...).

Unfortunately my n64 is unboxed. Never realised how hard it was to find the boxes now.

Glad you finally got a console, now you just have to find some games. You do want some games to go with that system right?

Welcome to :n64: 64Forever! Hope to see you around!

Welcome to :n64: 64Forever! Hope to see you around!
I've already got 7 games since purchasing it :)

Well, it came with 007 (boxed) and Earthworm Jim 3D (cart only).

Since then I've got Carmageddon 64, Turok 2, Mission Impossible (these came in a bundle on ebay for £9 delivered).

Also got Pokemon Stadium for £9.50 (was a listing in my local area so got lucky with this one).

Got Rayman 2 on the way which I made a sneaky bid in the middle of the night whilst working a nightshift.

Going to leave it at that for now as my next purchase is going to be an Expansion Pak as unfortunately it didn't come with one. I also want to save up a bit for the usual Zelda's and Mario's people get, but they're always upwards of £20 cart only so may need to wait a bit :)
Thank you for the welcomes, btw.

N64's aren't rare per sé in my area, it's because I purchased it from a local shop but un-boxed. I really want a box for it though, for collectors sake :)

The Burger King thing was basically a competition in the upstairs area and I won and got to choose anything I wanted. I chose a Pokeball with a gold plated card thing inside, similar to below:

I think mine was a Togebi one rather than Mewtwo though :)

That is an interesting detail about Burger King.
It's unrelated, but at the time, Mc'Donalds had their own kiosks with N64, but not all of them!
It must have been fun though. Congrats!

N64 at McDonalds would be awesome :)

For whatever reason, i missed out on it in my area at the time. They then converted the kiosks to house GameCubes, but again, was only available in certain locations. :yeah:

I'm from the UK. £15 for a minty OoT is a very good deal. Seen them go for £30 recently for mint.

Thanks all. As I mentioned on another thread, we move into the new house next weekend, so looking forward to finally getting my study/man cave/retro gaming heaven set up :)

My Nostalgia points to particular games rather than genres. I finally managed to get the N64 out the other day and 'de-flowered' it with Pokemon Stadium. Did not disappoint.

Other than PS, fave games are Goldeneye. A franchise I'm particularly fond of from the Megadrive/SNES days is Earthworm Jim, of which I've got the N64 version also.

As you can see, 3 entirely different games :)

I recently purchased a Gameboy Color also so I could use those Pokemon from Pokemon Yellow in my Stadium game.

May need to reign it in a bit because I think I'm addicted (obsessed?!).

I play so much pokemon red/blue/yellow through my stadium! It is very addicting, very fast. I found my childhood cart with my original GB pokemon still saved on it :wub:

I was fortunate to pick up R/B/Y right before the pokemon go inflation! I did loose my original GB carts but my pixels live on in the stadium!!

Nice to hear you guys are enjoying playing your 64s. I still have my original yellow GB Color and Pokemon Red cart from back in the day. Still has my save file on. I really want to start a new game but the trouble is I have Mew on there and would never want to lose that as I have no idea how I would get him back, as I remember I had to get him off a friend through the transfer cable. I forgot how he got Mew, perhaps some sort of cheat, think he had a GB Action Replay. I also wouldn't be able to get some of the Pokemon Blue Pokemon exclusive Pokemon I transferred over.

So for that reason, I actually still whip out Pokemon Go when I'm out walking my dog. I have like 114 Pokemon now. It's all good.

Theres a super easy glitch!!! I did it myself even!! 8)

This is the actual guide i used. Scroll past down step 10 and there is a pictured walk through with a black background. Super easy

Mew can learn all TMs and HMs! So my mew became my mule and knows surf, fly, cut, and strength :lol:
