Hey everybody, I'm new here my names Tom from the UK - I remember the 32/64 bit console wars fondly - I was maybe 11? Unfortunately we ended up being a PlayStation household and as much as I threw certain big titles for that system in my ever gloating friends face I always coveted the Nintendo 64 and it holds both a special place in my heart and a nostalgia that is matched by no other games console

Around 2007 I became big into collecting and by last count before I was forced to sell up due to financial constraints I was at around 30 video game systems with some rare and wonderful items and variants - alas letting go of my mint and completely boxed Nintendo 64 collection broke my heart in two..even more so than letting go of my precious boxed virtual boy and flash boy plus cart and boxed games (I was 5 away from a complete collection)

That said - February of this year, I said balls to it and got back in the game snatching up my favourite consoles again, all boxed bar the Saturn I got which was just one of those things - but I have back my precious n64 once more (the limited edition goldeneye pack with golden controller to be concise 8) )

I stumbled across this forum by chance and can't believe I'd never discovered it before, my quest is once more to hunt out and play classics/forgotten/missed games for the system, I'm a stickler for authenticity so I play all OG hardware with my 64 displayed on a big ugly :donkey: crt TV as it should be maaaaaan!!

That said my main interests are how people currently display/record/stream their Nintendo's/ footage and what kind of setup everybody rocks, I also take an interest in speedrunning and hardware mods

So glad to be part of this rad clan of 64-bit warriors of old

Peace!

Always nice to see someone else in the crt/n64 master race, with an interest in speed running huh? We'll get along just fine. I hope you're glad to be back in it. Welcome aboard!
