Of all the video game characters in the world, one of the most iconic is no doubt Nintendo's Mario. In recent years, Nintendo has begun to bring its iconic characters to mobile platforms such as Android and iOS, but the games haven't yet been offered on PC or game consoles outside the Nintendo realm. However, a fan-made port brings Super Mario 64 to the PC in a new and exciting way. The Mario 64 PC port circulated for the first over the weekend, and was made possible by a project from last year where fans reversed engineered the game's source code. The most notable feature of this project is that it's not a PC emulator designed to be a virtual copy of the original Nintendo 64 hardware. Instead,... Read more...
Ask a bunch of gamers to make a list of the most enduring video games on all time, and most lists would have Super Mario 64 on it.

Instead, it was supposed to serve as a proof of concept demo for his "Super Character Controller" platform that he made from scratch using Unity. He tested the demo with controllers for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and DualShock controllers for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, all of which presumably... Read more...
Nintendo's past is filled with memorable Mario games, one of those being Super Mario 64, a classic 3D platform title that was released a year shy of two decades ago for the Nintendo 64. You've probably long retired that console, perhaps flipping it on eBay along with your collection of games so you could fund a newer system. Ah, but if you're feeling nostalgic, you can relive some those memories right in your browser. Developer Roystan Ross took it upon himself to recreate the first level of the game, which you can now play online or through a browser. Why? We say 'Why not!?', though the real reason is it's a proof of concept demo for "Super Character Controller," a platform he built from scratch... Read more...
