Want to watch one of your favorite childhood games get ripped to shreds by speedrunner MrsGizamaluke? Then look no further!
“You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you?” The Majora’s Mask is a mysterious artifact that was once used by the Ancient Tribe for their bewitching rituals. Despite being incredibly powerful, the ancient tribe sealed the mask away for fears that its great power may be used for dark intent… Centuries later, the mask is stolen, and then worn by the mischievous and unwitting Skull Kid, who not only is consumed by the mask’s dark powers, but also becomes its unwitting slave, ready with a new found desire to create mischief and rain devastation on the world…
Sometimes I think about getting into the speedrunning scene. Picking one game and really learning the ins and outs of it. Then I realize I'd have to stop doing everything else in order to get anywhere near decent!
Thanks to MarioCheated and Chris for the heads up!
I certainly need a replacement controller for my N64. The ones I have have been well-loved, and a sturdy replacement would be wonderful. I'm definitely down for something unique like this. Looks like it could be a quality controller!
Piko Interactive has seen big success with their Kickstarter looking to release 40 Winks on the N64. It's great to see support from fans, but why on earth is Piko Interactive doing this nearly 17 years after the N64 version was cancelled? Piko Interactive's Eli Galindo explains...
"We picked 40 Winks because it was an original IP and because it had an unreleased N64 version, but mainly because it was an original IP. Honestly, we expected just to fund our Kickstarter, sell 250 to 300 carts. But I listened to the reports on the retro gaming scene, like the Retro Fighters controller getting funded on Kickstarter with over 5,000 backers, and that report that N64 was the hottest platform in second hand stores during the holidays. Those two signs made me prioritise 40 Winks."
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild the first Zelda game in Japan since Ocarina of Time to break 1 million units sold
We talked a little bit about this a few weeks back, but now it's official. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold over 1 million units in Japan alone. The Switch version accounts for 871,528 units while the Wii U version accounts for another 133,024 units. This makes it the first Zelda game in Japan since Ocarina of Time to break the 1 million mark. Now the question is, will it topple Ocarina of Time at some point?
The future is now, my friends. The days of watching Twitch streamers play games for us is coming to an end. We'll all be watching a computer AI play games to perfection! Case in point, the test above, in which a computer AI is learning how to play Super Mario 64. Yes, this is a small step to an AI that can play the game from start to finish, but an important one nonetheless!
