10 Unlucky Moments In Video Game Speedruns You Won’t Believe

Back in the day, there was nothing better than popping in your favorite cartridge and spending hours on the Nintendo 64. No matter how long you actually played the console, there were likely some hidden features you had no clue the console could do. Learn about these various tricks and consider dusting off the old thing to try them out for yourself!

If you love the Nintendo 64 controllers or emulating classic games on the computer, then you can actually use the original controller designs. A USB adapter allows two controllers to be plugged into the same USB port and can be used for a variety of games. The Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color had little interaction until a Pokemon game gave players a way to play Game Boy on a full-sized TV. The original NES power glove was a big bust, but that didn’t stop developers from creating a rare glove design for the N64. The clunky accessory wasn’t used for any exclusive game, but did provide some fun. The N64 expansion pak was essential for some games, but it also added a lot enhancements to other titles. Online gaming was not used on the standard N64, but players who got their hands on the N64DD could actually go online with various games. The N64 only plays N64 cartridges, but a third-party accessory allowed players to play both older NES and Super Nintendo games they still have laying around. Special versions of the N64 controller were actually used as television remotes. If you didn’t like the controller, the N64 also released a special mouse and keyboard package for the 64DD. A lot of countries got exclusive N64 games and you could get your hands on them thanks to a special region-free add-on. Online access and email could be obtained through a special N64 add-on known as Sharkwire. Watch to see all of these hidden things your Nintendo 64 could do!

    Almost all of these had nothing to do with the N64 itself and were third party addons, many of which were no approved by Nintendo.

    #1 – Play better on emulators with better controllers. And vice versa.

    I learned something just from the thumbnail. There was a N64 Logo on the N64 device!

    I am playing Super Mario 64 with my laptop just fine with the keybord…

    Oh man as much as I would play the N64 I never knew about the extra stuff. Except for the Pokemon stadium with the pack that allowed you to go to the Gameboy version. That I've done a lot and as for the hotel I went to my cousin's party in a hotel little did we know that they had a Sega controller. 😂 I played Sonic 2 for hours
    But this is insane!!! I need to get a N64 again
    Thank you for showing me this masterpiece

    In Pokémon Stadium you can play your gameboy games right away when you first start the game. Clearing the gym leaders unlocks double speed and clearing all cups unlocks triple speed.

    what about my new n64

  18. Christopher Beebe October 19, 2018 at 4:09 pm

    90's buy this for this! No one buys. 2000's this app and you get this free! Everyone gets it. 🤔 nothing is free, yet gamers wanna change that with OUR culture. Hmmmm. Gotta say i love retropie, incredible. Beats my 15 year old moded xbox.. and i love my moded xbox, did it myself. But im not as good as the new generation. Example it took me 3 months to get snes nes sega n64 emulators on it. The retropie has WAY more. And more memory. As proud as i was with my xbox i felt like a caveman when i saw the retropie selections.
