About Miketendo 64
This Blog Site was created in order for me express my love for Nintendo with those that also
do. To share my experiences with past and present game titles. To give reviews on the official and unofficial Nintendo merchandise and accessories and games and where to buy them but most importantly, is to keep YOU the reader up to date with the latest news and releases from Nintendo like European/American release dates for Amiibo and games.
I have been a Nintendo Fan ever since I was 3 years old and had my own NES. I have fond memories of playing Super Mario Bros. & Super Mario Bros. 3 but my All Time Favourite console is (as the name of this site suggests) the Nintendo 64. It had the best games of All time and in my mind is what innovated Gaming. With titles such as the 3D world of Super Mario 64, The Apex of First Person Shooters- Goldeneye, The Holy Grail Of Zelda Games and the reason I became a Zelda Fan- The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.
Banjo-Kazooie and Conkers: Bad Fur Day, 1080° Snowboarding were also my long time favourites for the console. I will never forget my father and his friend jumping off their seats and launching their controllers in the air as they played Wave Race 64 (They were Avid Jet Skiers and not use to using a small joystick to navigate and turn around bends). It is probably because of people like my father and his friends that Nintendo invented the Wii and Motion Controls 😉
I am now a proud owner of the Nintendo Wii U, and regardless to what other companies and reviewers think, I love the system, the Game Pad may seem gimmicky but it has been a long time coming. I can remember when I was younger sharing a TV with my brother and sister and sometimes being out-voted if there was an interesting program on (In their opinion) and me having to sit there and sulk whilst wishing “If Only there was a way I could still play as they watched TV,” Well it may be 15 years too late as I have since moved out but the principle still applies. I have to share a TV with my Girlfriend but hold on, the Wii U has it’s own screen and an audio jack for headphones. At Last, I no longer have to sulk in vain, I can continue to play on and irritate the GF with the constant tapping and button mashing (I know it is silly for a grown man to sulk and to enjoy irritating others but, I love playing videogames. If that makes me childish then that’s fine by me :P)
Well enough about me for now. I hope you will enjoy this Blog Site and will continue to read my other posts and that they may prove useful on your own gaming adventures.
