We tend to stick to N64 related material on this site, but did you know the Famicom turned 30 this year? Without our dear old NES, we might not have had an N64. In celebration of the big three-oh, we have a decidedly NES oriented article for you today. Don't worry, you still need your trusty N64... And a Gameshark Pro! Check out our latest feature, Neon64 on a Gameshark Pro, here.

If you were ever a fan of the game Shadow Man, you might like this. The PC version of the game was just re-released for digital download yesterday by Gog. It runs on newer Operating Systems just fine and costs $5.99. Fans who purchase the game before the 24th will also get a digital copy of the Shadow Man comic book #1. Official page is here.
Oh and Micro-64 had five more banners added today.
September 17 2013
I think it's about time for a banner update. A total of six new banners have made their way into the rotation. Also a few minor corrections were made to some older ones. I'm not telling you which ones were added, just keep browsing the site and you'll find them.

The weekend is here and I recently started a new job. I guess I'm going to start gearing up for another Prototype article. But which game to talk about one? More details on that later. Erm, today is also the 13th birthday of when Turok 3 shipped to retailers. Hoorah.

Well I did the Turok 2 video again. I managed to show off the entire level and it's a minute longer than the last one. It has sound too. It can be viewed here. For some reason I was playing a bit worse than last time. I used up more ammo and lost more health. I must be losing the knack or something.
These ridiculously long rendering sessions are truly horrible. I ended up setting my computer up to upload the video to YouTube while I went to a party. I had a good time at said party, but on the way home I scared the crap out of myself and everyone in the car because there was a raccoon on the road and I had to stop for it. Damn thing just stopped in the middle of the road and starred back at my car. He probably had his life flash before his eyes or something. Glad I was able to stop in time and didn't squish him. Good to be back in one piece. Have a good day everyone.

It's Saturday, hooray. I've been doing more YouTubing lately and have gotten another video up. This time it's the Turok 2 NFR. At 49 minutes it didn't take as long as Superman did to render and upload. I must've done something horribly wrong though, there's no sound! Damn it! The video can be viewed here for now, though I'm going to get it replaced with another one probably within the next 24 hours.
In other news, I've decided to expand Micro-64 in a unique way. We've always been your favorite Nintendo 64 fansite, but very soon we're going to be providing insurance too! UFO Abduction insurance to be exact. If you purchase our insurance and ever get abducted, we'll send a ship full of highly trained engineers and soldiers up to rescue you. Our rates start at just $8200/month! Rates do vary so please let us know your age, height, shoe size, blood type, and zodiac sign. Yes this offer is completely legitimate.

Time for another update. I've made some minor edits to our Superman Beta article. Just a few tiny things I've noticed since I originally uploaded it. I've also made a video of Beta Superman in action. Yes, I finally got off my behind and filmed Beta Superman. It's just over an hour long and can be viewed here. That video took over 5 hours to render, 2 and a half hours to upload to Youtube, and than another half hour to process on Youtube. Man did that take a while!

You know, I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't updated in a couple weeks. It appears to have been a bit longer than that. Well it was a nice break but I guess it's time to get back to work. I've started a large project recently. My goal is to give every N64 developer and publisher their own page. It's going to take a while, but I'll give you a preview for now. The first one I picked was of course Iguana Entertainment.

Well hello new fans of Micro-64! In the past few days we've been getting lots and lots of visitors to Micro-64. The page that's drawing in all this attention appears to be our Turok 3 Prototype page. That's kinda funny because I made that page back in October 2012. Well, I'm always glad to have more people around. I figure it's time to do a small update to that page. I've also added it to the Feature Index as I didn't do that before. I will get around to writing a large page on that Prototype, I promise. In the mean time, why not check out my huge article on the Turok 2 NFR, or yesterday's large Superman Beta article.
July 6 2013
There was no update last week. We do have a new page today and it's massive! So massive it needs to be on two separate pages. Trust me people the wait was worth it. Today's feature is on the Superman Prototype. This was dumped back in March and I've wanted to do a feature on it every since I found out about it. Beta Superman is so much better than the retail version. I'm glad I got the chance to play it!
June 22 2013
A large variety of games have been reviewed over the course of Micro-64's first year. But can you believe we haven't had a single Mario game? I can't either! Today's update is for our review of Mario Party, the first one.
June 15 2013
It's been a slow week. I've added a couple Press Releases and that's about it. I'm hoping to get a feature or review out next week though.
June 8 2013
The results of the poll were to do an article on something beta/unreleased. Well here is that article! It's a bit short I know. There's an upcoming beta/unreleased article coming to Micro-64 and this is going to be a real exciting one.
Oh, and a while ago we mentioned that there was a project to get some beta versions of Conker's Bad Fur Day and Perfect Dark released. Well we are happy to announce that they have now been released. The ROMs can be found if you know where to look.
June 1 2013
Haha I had a feeling a lot of people just went straight for new pages and didn't pay attention much to the news updates. Hey nothing wrong with that. The update we'll be having in one week will have to do with something beta. It will be interesting for sure. As for today's update, there's a new page in the database. Micro-64 will now be archiving original Press Releases. The list is here. It's a small list for now, but it will grow.
May 25 2013
Good evening! Today I was trying to figure out what to add and well, I'm drawing a blank. I will be doing some very small additions and corrections to our current articles, but otherwise I don't have anything new to talk about. How about we do a poll?
Poll Removed, thanks for voting.
Yep, you guys can pick a future article. Voting ends sometime on June 1st. On June 1st we'll have some sort of new page and then the following week will be a new page based on the results of that poll. The results of the poll will also help us determine how many people actually read these updates. If you've got a few seconds why not vote?
Almost forgot, the "join our forum" banner that went above these updates is gone. I just got sick of looking at it. It will return eventually though so don't get excited!
May 18 2013
We really don't have that many reviews yet so it's time to add another one. So far the games we've talked about have gotten scores from average to near perfect. It's time to break this trend and review something awful. Today's review: Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. Big thanks to Dave for the review.
Old updates can be found here.
