I'll do laundry after I level up, Mom!

A less lazy person would have already uploaded her vacation pictures to Flickr, so she could, therefore, incorporate them in her blog entry. That person, however, would have missed out on the opportunity to free Lanky Kong (on Donkey Kong 64) and to spend two hours watching her brother play Assassin's Creed on his new Playstation 3.

Priorities, people.

P.S. Thanks so much for all the lovely comments and messages while I was away! I love you, internet. :)

Hmm... Donky Kong 64, or Assasin's Creed... DK, or AC... or Flickr? My my... you've made a good choice.

Ew... Donkey Kong 64? That's like, a poor man's Mario 64.

But, the DK Rap is quite hilarious. "His coconut gun can fire in spurts. If he shoots ya, it's gonna hurt! HWUH!"

Gilligan - Thanks! Watching Assassin's Creed was crazy hilarious, especially after playing DK64. My brother and I kept making references like, "If this was DK64, you would have to go five minutes out of your way to find a stupid barrel to change into Tiny Kong so that you could be small enough to fit through that hole on the top of the building. And for all your trouble, you'd just get five coins and one step closer to unlocking a golden banana."

Tez - Back when we actually used N64, my brother and I were too poor to buy any games, apparently. I think we rented a lot of games from Blockbuster. Any games that were good enough to buy, we have since lost or "loaned" to friends. I actually dusted off the system to play Mario Kart, but I can't find it anywhere. Alas, I am stuck playing DK64 until I can find and purchase Mario Kart or until my brother relinquishes control of the PS2 or any of the other consoles.

Shame. You think with a PS3, he wouldn't really mind letting go of the PS2. But if you're looking for a new N64 game and are thinking along the lines of Mario Kart, I think you should get Diddy Kong Racing. It's just like Mario Kart, but it has hoverboats and airplanes and stuff. It's all adventure-y like DK64 or Mario 64, but instead levels it has races. It rules; one of my favorite N64 games, right up there with Starfox.

Tez - If he had more than two games for the PS3, he'd probably let go of the PS2. We'll see. Also, Diddy Kong Racing was HILARIOUS. We used to rent that one a lot. Those were the days . . .

DK64 took many, many hours of my time back when it was new and shiny. Heck. It took many hours of my time just a couple years ago because I liked it.

Well, hopefully, some day, you can implant a 64 emulator in your brain, and you can play DK while you do housework.

One can dream!

Thursday's Child - If I play Minesweeper long enough, I start seeing it on the inside of my eyelids any time I blink or try to sleep. It gets a wee bit annoying after a while. I also had a few dreams about WoW when I played too much. I could probably whip up some DK64 dreams, too, in time. I'd rather not, though . . .

Video games > any real life activity

You made the right choice.

120 stars is a Rite of Passage for all serious gamers.

That being said, those who missed out on Mario 64 could always snag a Wii and get Mario 64 on the virtual console.

So, uhm, yeah...

Scrangie - Aww, I miss your video game rambles on Xanga. You're my "girls can play video games AND be hot AND be wicked awesome" hero.

Fuse! - I really didn't like Mario 64. I probably would have liked it better if I knew where to go and what to do. I mostly just ran around in circles and jumped on stuff until I died.

Mario 64 is one of the greatest games of all time. Granted, it's still not as good as Super 3 or Super Mario World, but for 3-D it hasn't really be rivaled until the recent release of Super Mario Galaxy.

As for knowing what to do, that feeling doesn't last long once you start to "get it", and after that it's not a matter of knowing what to do, because that part starts to come easy. Eventually it becomes a matter of knowing what you NEED to do, but just not quite being able to pull it off.

It's no joke to say that getting your 120 stars is bragging rights well earned. (IMHO Mario 64 DS's 150 stars don't count since most of them have been made easier to get for all those wimps out there.)
