We're playing this next time we hang out. I was amazing at counters, and amazed when I found Wrath via Gameshark.

Back in the day on web 1.0, people had theories that Kane was Kevin Nash. :lol:

Don't remind me of Isaac Yankem.

Aren't most of the unlockable characters really NJPW guys (maybe Mexico?) renamed due to licensing?

I'll be terrible now, but I would win our neighborhood tournament 20 years ago LOL. I'm in.

Not quite. IIRC, there were two factions who were redrawn and renamed based on wrestlers mostly based in Japan (not just NJPW), but these were available from the start. Those unlocked included Piper, Meng, Barbarian... and I forget the rest. But Wrath was GS only.

That's it! They're seemingly randoms but makes more sense when you realize the WCW Japan links back then... just dudes renamed.

I remember being disappointed unlocking Meng :? ... no Flair to be seen in the game :lol:.

I managed to get an Expansion Pak with Christmas gift cards. I installed it today - and cut my finger pretty good on some broken plastic around the slot. I guess if I'd been smart I would have used some kind of tool to pry out the old Jumper Pak. Oh well. Anyway, now I'll be able to play Perfect Dark!

Congrats! It isn't required for many games, but it there's a decent list of games that it adds improvement to!

The Expansion Pak actually came packaged with a little plastic tool used to pry out the Jumper Pak. I still have mine from when I got Donkey Kong 64 the Christmas it came out!

You can also remove the paks with a spoon. At least, that's what I've used per a magazine's recommendation :lol: .

Noticing there's 10 or so N64 games on XB1 available in some form. How did Banjo Kazooie age? My kids like 3D platformers & I find the collecting pretty mindlessly relaxing. Was thinking of buying the refreshed a la carte version. Is this the same as the version on Rare Replay?

Also... really excited to see DOOM 64 have upcoming release dates. About time!
