Retarded trolls?? On RG Forum? Surely not! Everyone here is on this forum for pure and good reasons, and subscribe/buy the magazine regularly and love retro games. We are the perfect united community. :o

I hope they go for the Super Famicom look. Now that's one classy beast.

Five minutes with a Super Famicom and a csync RGB cable and you'll never look at your PAL SNES again.

Not mine. Imported from Japan for £30 shipped and one of my most treasured possessions. Would love a similar deal for the original Famicom but the lack of RGB support is a deal-breaker.

Thinking about the mini N64 a bit more, games like Golden Eye and Conker's Bad Fur Day might not be possible because Rare have just done a compilation of their own for the XBox One. Still, there is plenty of first party material on the N64 to make it worthwhile.

There's Pilotwings and Wave Race (both of which would be criminal to exclude from an N64 compilation IMO), Starfox, F-Zero, Super Smash Bros, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. I would also be hopeful for Harvest Moon 64, Castlevania and ISS 64 from Natsume and Konami respectively.

The Wii Virtual Console had 21 N64 games. Add the Wii U's DK64 and that would be more then enough.

Heck, Nintendo would make a killing selling the additional N64 controllers for 4 player... :lol:

Would be a shame not to have those brilliant Rare games on a possible N64 version, but still plenty of good Nintendo classics to put on. I would wonder how many of the 'newer' games they would consider fair. The NES has 30 games, most great titles, you'd assume a SNES version would be similar...how many N64 games would be acceptable?
Super Mario 64 is a dead cert. One would hope the racer trilogy 1080, Wave Race and excitebike 64 would be there. A few more marios- Kart/golf etc, F Zero...the two Zelda Masterpieces...

Ha ha, how bout Resident evil 2 ?! :wink:

I've just been experimenting with Project64 through Wine and it's a functional emulator if not an absolute Grade A experience. I can use it but it still leaves me longing for my real N64.

There is definitely a market for a professional emulator product for the N64. I'd like to think that Nintendo's main reason for the NES mini is to reach gamers who aren't interested in a no frills digital service and want a material product they can hold in their hands, an item that provides a sensory experience in addition to a gaming one.

Any halfway competent marketing research department could work out that a lot of people feel dissatisfied with emulation (legal or otherwise) and spend silly money on eBay for games they could play for free at the click of a mouse. The NES mini is a very perceptive attempt to tap that market.
