We're finally, FINALLY finished with racing games on the Nintendo 64! And we're ending on a high note with Midway's RUSH trilogy! These goofy arcade racers are all about big air and big crashes, but does it deserve to step out of CRUIS'N's shadow and fly on their own futuristic car wings? Hosted by Steve Guntli and Woody Ciskowski Logo by Steve Gun…

We're saying goodbye to the Nintendo64's few RPGs, and we're sending it off in style. AIDYN CHRONICLES: THE FIRST MAGE is an epic fantasy that came out late in the N64's lifecycle, with a huge world and an eclectic cast of characters.

This week we're taking a trip to the island of misfit N64 games to play three games that don't really fit in anywhere. First, there's the leak-plugging puzzle game WETRIX, followed by the grappling-hook racer IGGY'S RECKIN' BALLS, and then RAT ATTACK, which... also exists.

With BANJO-TOOIE, Rare may have finally out-Rared themselves. The sequel to BANJO-KAZOOIE takes everything from that game and cranks it to 11; we're talking massive levels, hundreds of characters, first-person bird shooting, statue soccer, turning into an armored truck, and all the unfortunate caricatures you can handle.
