Cappa won't give a toss, but I do. I only played Dark Dawn out of this series and loathed it, to the tune of everyone and their mother telling me it's by far the worst of the three. Time then to see if they were right. My gut tells me that the frequency of the random battles will annoy me more than anything else impresses me, but I may as well give it a go - it's free*!

I played a bit of this on GBA back in the day when I was jonesing for Pokémon. It seemed decent but turn-based malarky can't hold my attention if I'm not commanding monster friends.

The first is the only one I've played and it's great

Though I hope this is a prelude to

"Mario Sports game releases, Camelot's last game was in 2021, feel they'll have something and it is often sports, though I'd sooner have Golden Sun."

I'm just happy that these popping up out of nowhere might mean we get more N64 games.

That's not true. It sounds like I'm prepared to give Golden Sun more of a chance that you are - you've already just about written it off. I feel I've been well-rewarded by recent experiences I've had with RPGs/action adventure games like Beyond Oasis, Startropics and Chrono Trigger. I'll give Golden Sun a go too, it might end up being similarly rewarding.

It's just the pervy JRPGs that are made by chair sniffers than I don't like.

Well that's patently not true either! So I guess we're even. (Truth be told, I was so surprised I was posting about a VC game you hadn't that I assumed you didn't care.) I don't know how much action the GS games have, but one thing GSDD did well was having actual Zelda-like puzzling in the dungeons - so more than your average turn-based game.

I was actually thinking of starting up a Let's All Play for Golden Sun seeing as the JFG thread has died on its arse. I've never played it and I'd be keen to see how it holds up.

It’s a decently active month for Nintendo Switch Online, with three Mario games and an F-Zero one yet to come.



Dr. Mario is exactly that. I’d like to make the time to play through Mario Golf, I’ve had the cartridge for yonks but only played it for about ten minutes at a time and only on a handful of occasions. Mario Tennis GBC was very good when I played that through back in the day, but I don’t think I want to relive all the RPG stuff.



F-Zero: Maximum Velocity was the game I got with my GBA on launch day in 2001, and I disliked it so much that I was at Electronics Boutique the following morning, waiting for the shop to open so I could return it. I grew up into being a much more, well, sane person, and I got it again cheaply when the GBA was on the way out of market. Anyhoo, I can appreciate Maximum Velocity for being an accomplished little racer, one that’s very fast, very playable and certainly worth looking at again in 2024.

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but seeing F-Zero 99 come out last year and the choice of Maximum Velocity on Switch Online this month does make me curious if there's some F-Zero news in the pipeline. Wishful thinking, probably.

I have good memories of playing Maximum Velocity with my mate Rich all night long at a sleepover. I still have a copy that I play on my Game Boy Micro but the gammy shoulder buttons make it an issue.

It probably is wishful thinking Jay, but if Nintendo want to launch Switch 2 with a visually impressive racer to play the role Mario Kart 8 played in Switch's first year, and they think its too soon for Mario kart 9 . . .

Also Tour is 9 or Nintendo count as mainline, so bring on Mario Kart X Nintendo.

I think I suggested earlier in this thread that Extreme-G and Iggy’s Reckin Balls were two of the likelier third-party games to appear on N64 Online. They’re two former Acclaim games, and most of that now-defunct company’s catalogue has been acquired in the last twenty years. Throwback Entertainment - who as I understand it are only really in the business of re-releasing old games - got those two and Extreme-G 2, as well as a fair few games from Acclaim’s PS2/GameCube/Xbox catalogue. I’m sharing that information with you so that you can begin to look forward to Summer Heat Beach Volleyball when it re-releases on GameCube Online for Switch 2 in 2031.
 
Anyhoo, Extreme-G was all right back at a time before F-Zero X and at a time when it was one of the cheaper N64 games you could find in the shops. I think the cleaner visuals and bump in framerate will do it good on Switch Online, I think it’ll be worth revisiting. Iggy’s Reckin Balls, on the other hand, should be one of these meme games that’s so bad it’s good. Give it a go by all means and make your own mind up, but I don’t think it’s any good. Anytime I’ve tired playing it, I’ve just found it to be a confusing load of shite.

The big things I remember about Iggy's Reckin' Balls was (a) I thought it looked pretty fun at the time (look: I was young) and (b) the massive gap between the NOM and N64 Magazine scores. If I recall correctly, N64 gave it 50% and NOM gave it 90%. 90%! Absurd stuff. I find it quite strange that they've brought it back, but Cappa called it so apparently I shouldn't.

I know I'm repeating myself now - but I just remember being amazingly bored with Extreme-G. Like an F-Zero Alpha build. Looking forward to trying Iggy's Reckin' Balls though, only because it's the game that B64 upset a PR lad with!

I've only tried Iggy Tripping Balls so far out of curiosity and I think Cappa summed it up perfectly, confusing and a load of shite, I feel really bad for whichever kid got this as their 1 or 2 games a year back in the N64 days especially with the law back then being that you has to dump at least 30 hours in to these games when replaying them. If ever we were to do a big N64 app multiplayer session again it'd probably be alright as a 5 minute footnote but nothing more.

I thought Iggy’s Reckin Balls was going to be pretty fun as well, it was previewed positively from what I can remember. I’d earmarked it as a game I’d get when it went on sale or if I could get it cheaply pre-owned. Dodgy final reviews put me off and I just didn’t get round to it, at least not until when I really got into my N64 collecting about a decade later. Even fifteen years ago it felt like a five minute footnote sort of game. I made an earnest effort to go back to Iggy’s Reckin Balls when I was ploughing through N64 games in lockdown, but it’s one of the few (alongside Buck Bumble and, being honest, Perfect Dark) where I just eventually said ‘naw’.
 
I’ve been playing Extreme-G though, and it’s difficult to get excited about. It’s fast and it’s all functionally sound, sure, but it’s totally devoid of personality and character.

Assuming you meant N64 Magazine, what’s the story behind that?

No I meant B64 magazine, for the Ben-Ten-do 64 actually

(Alternatively: sorry, I type bad now)

I want to say that this was the game they gave a low review score, after a previous game was well regrded, and a PR guy went up to them at a trade show and stomped on a copy of the magazine.


Having said that, I can't work out what the previous game was, so maybe it's something completely different now...
