Goldeneye (N64)

At one point in Goldeneye's development there was going to be a feature where you unplugged and replugged a rumble pack to reload.

Very interesting article. I never had a Nintendo 64, or played Goldeneye, but the folks at Good Game have raved about it enough that I understand its honoured place in game history.
LOL @ Pam... if I had $20 for every time someone used that word with me... well....

I'd probably have like $60

Yeah, that whole article is really interesting. I know it sort of ushered in the next generation of FPSs, but I didn't realize quite how from scratch they were starting.

I never had my own N64 but I spent many hours at friends' houses playing that game. That and Perfect Dark.

Same here. I hit every other generation, and only just before the next generation came out. There was a 2-3 year period where I had  PS2 before PS3 came out. I remember how awesome it was to see games on Penny Arcade and being able to play them. It was pretty awesome. I get that whole culture now.

You mean like when you were playing Minecraft during alpha phase?

I know I had played Minecraft well before they did that one comic about it. That was pretty cool.

Do you want one?  I think I have an extra one.

Does lanky want one? Does a bull fuck cows? Does the pope have balls?

I'd wager that even if he didn't want an N64 specifically, he'd want it because (a) it's technology and (b) it's a part of history!

I don't know the pope personally, so his ball stats aren't on my books.

Heh, ball stats. Thankfully, hairy, wrinkly, and well-rounded are all terms you could use to describe someone's sports season.

Speaking of old gaming systems, I have multiple Ataris as well. One of them has the plastic lid that goes on top, but there's a chunk of it missing in the back. I'm super bummed out :(

Nostalgia.

No, youngin.  It's more than nostalgia.

I've got the urge to play Sega tonight, I think I'll have to do that.

I think we also need to make some devices to let us use older hardware like that with new digital TVs. Most old gaming consoles used Analogue TV signals to plug in.

Agreed. I was thinking about that, too. I have an analog tv that's sole purpose is for gaming, but eventually it will die. Then what?  ::sigh::  Someone needs to create a converter or something. That almost makes me sad too though. I fancy the gritty picture for old school console gaming.

Edit: Actually, I just checked and my digital has a coax dohickey thingamabob.

A lot of TVs do still have an analogue receiver for old school TV antennas but as more and more areas are going to digital only broadcasts, there'll be less impetus to keep shipping them in new TV models.

Eventually we'll end up having TVs that only have a digital receivers and the old consoles won't work any more. Granted it isn't likely that a lot of consoles will still be working when TVs do stop the analogue receivers but still, I'll miss the technology.

Over the years, I've come across enthusiasts who do something with old systems, like rejuvenating old gamepads, or creating adaptors. I'm sure someone has put up on the internet at least some instructions on how to DIY adapt your system to a newer TV.

No, separate from nostalgia.

Nostalgia is about recapturing that old feeling of playing your system. The enchantment is about understanding the change with time. E.g. console gaming headsets, or an iPad, were not things we used fifteen years ago. Even something as fundamental as "save game" didn't always exist.

Check out Ben Heck. If you want old school, he's probably found a way to bring it to 2013, and he'll show you how. If you want the right thing, he's probably selling it.

I have the opposite TV problem. I can't hook up anything that doesn't have RCA or coax. Though, I have a box of damn near every adapter you could ever think of. It wouldn't be pretty, but I think I can make pretty much anything work.
