Last Sunday, I went to a meetup at a restaurant called the Geek Retreat… which ended up not happening… but I noticed that they had a Nintendo 64, so I decided to play whatever they had, and they had Wipeout 64, so I just played that for about an hour, then headed home.
On Monday, I met up with an old school friend at Geek Retreat, and we played some Nintendo 64 while chatting away, we played some Goldeneye, followed by Wipeout 64, and then WWF no mercy. It was nice playing them and meeting this old friend again!
On Saturday, I met up with this friend again and his group of friends at MEGABytes, I brought along Superman 64, and decided to play that, and we had a blast just laughing at it! It is such a bad game!
We came up with an alternate backstory for the game, Lois Lane is the real villan, and Lex Luthor is just a hostage! The idea came from when “rescuing” Lois Lane, she cried for help, but then said “Before you save me, take out all the bad guys.”, and she looked so casual and calm where she was… hmm… 😛
We also joked about how Superman would be traumatised after the game ends, and will be triggered if anyone mentions rings, and we came up with all sorts of scenarios where “ring” would be mentioned to him!
After our one hour session was finished, they offered to take it off our hands for free and throw it into the river clyde, which I politely declined! 😛
That’s it for this week’s retro diary, see youse whenever I do anything else worth of note…
