Correction on the first fact on this thread. Pokemon Stadium 2 was 64MB, not The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, which was 32MB.

Here's a fact:

As of February 20, 2010, there are seveteen games on the North American Virtual Console with the 18th one coming soon.

Although if I remember correctly they said it was because it was too buggy, but the school shootings is probably the real reason.
I remember reading about it in magazines back in the day, it was only cancelled pretty :cussfit: late in the development of the game.

Two corrections.

1, Conker's Bad Fur Day was self-published by Rareware (they could do this, as the Stamper brothers were the majority shareholders).

2, Conker's Bad Fur Day was mentioned in Nintendo Power, but only in upcoming games lists, never in an article or ad.

Yep, except in Europe where THQ picked it up. Rare also published Perfect Dark, for what it's worth the first M-rated Game Nintendo itself ever published was 2002's Eternal Darkness:Sanity's Requiem for the Gamecube, although they did publish Perfect Dark in Japan so you could count that, I suppose.

1) The Key and Eggs in Banjo Kazooie can be accessed just by using cheats (see :http://au.ign.com/cheats/games/banjo-kazooie-n64-1922).

I thought it was amazing when I figured you could access all those hidden areas all those years ago.



2) Nintendo made the PAL box art of some n64 games (i.e. Mario 64, pilot wings etc) with ugly black borders to emulate the massive black borders that unfortunate PAL n64 owners saw on the screen when playing the game (or maybe I just made that up :D).

I believe it was also the first 64-bit console ever made by anybody. Unless you count the Atari Jaguar. Does anybody count the Jaguar? Why am I talking about Jaguars? :huh: Oh well, I put my two cents in.
Collection: NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, Atari 2600, Xbox 360, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance SP, DS Lite, DSi, PSP-1000

Are you sure about that? Nintendo promoted the heck out of PD in America.

Captain Falcon and Ness are the only characters in Super Smash Bros that don't have stages from their games. Luigi and Jiggylpuff share with Mario and Pikachu respectively.
