04.08.2000 SITE SLOWDOWN THE NEXT 4 WEEKS
Sorry, but I've got a very important report to finish before May 6th and I need to spend all time I possibly can on making this report great, or I might've wasted 2 years of my life (bah). Therefore, please dont expect 0-day updates of this site the next month or so.

WETRIX REVIEW
I've finally review Wetrix, which I have to admit is one of my favourite N64 puzzles. Check out the Review here.

Someone obviosly didnt know that we're way past April 1st cause yesterday a hoax rom was released, yeah it was the Perfect Dark Kiosk [USA] release (na-pdark.zip). Thankfully it was only uploaded to a few sites, none public as far as I know.

MEGA MAN COMMING TO THE N64
Yes, Capcom is working on the first Mega man game for the Nintendo64, rumors says that it'll be a port of the PSX game called Mega Man Legends. The game is said to be displayed at E3 in May.

UPDATED JAPANESE N64 RELEASE LIST
Ign64.com has updated their version of the Japanese released list and it looks like this:

Gauntlet Legends [Midway] April 7
Yosuke Ide's Mah-jongg Juku [Seta] April 21
Nintama Rantaro 64 Game Gallery [Culture Brain] April 21
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask [Nintendo] April 27
Bass Rush Ecogear Power Worm Championship [Bisuko] April 28
F-Zero X Expansion Kit [Nintendo] April 2000 (64DD)

FIX FOR THE SHADOWGATE (JAP) DUMP
Something went wrong when High Soceity dumped Shadowgate 64, but a fix for the rom has now been released, you can download it here.

CRACK FOR POKEMON STADIUM "GERMAN VERSION"
RedboX does it again and releases a crack for the german version of Pokémon Stadium, unfortunately I dont have the crack, so feel free to send it in, thanks.

GREAT PRODUCT GETTING PRICE REDUCED
This doorstop will prevent your door or window from closing when you dont want it to and the product's price is being heavily reduced too due to large ammounts of unsold units and to make it available for everyone, get this hot item while you can!

Sorry, cant remember where I got this pic, so I dunno who to credit.



04.02.2000 WHAT TO EXPECT OF APRIL
Not much to expect from the American market atleast, since nothing is scheduled for release atm, but who knows something might get released since they change the dates all the time. However in Japan will the second N64 Zelda quest be released at the end of the month, but I believe thats about the only release to look forward to.

ANOTHER MONTH HAS PASSED
March went with 28 releases, top month sofar this year, and it even presented a couple of kickass titles such as Top Gear Hyper Bike, eventhough ign64.com claimed its nothing special (those friggin' jerks) it's still the best damn N64 moto-racer, yet. Another release worth mentioning is Kirby who finally makes "it's" debut on the N64, not counting Smash Bros.

A title which dissapointed a bit tho was Hydro Thunder. Midway was going on about how great their N64 version of Hydro was going to be, before its release, and how it would be at the same standard as the Dreamcast version, maybe even a little better. I've never played the DC version of Hydro Thunder, but if the N64 is supposed to be better, the DC version must be total crap.

Star Craft 64 finally got a full version release in Europe, remember the US beta version from September?, although while the beta didnt require a special type of cart to save, could you save at all?, the full version requires a cartridge with flashRAM to save, such as Jet Force Gemini or Command & Conquer.

March was also the month where the MIA (missing in action) list of undumped games got heavily reduced, no less than 8 games went off the list, impressive. Team Menace got the most releases of March, a total of 10 releases! Good work! High Soceity was close to beating Menace, HS got 8 releases this month. The Corporation managed to get in 4th place in the race, only 3 releases, they also got beaten by NIL which had 4 releases this month. Also a gretting to Lightforce with their release, which was my favourite game this month... yeap! Top Gear Hyper Bike! :)

Finally the scene got a few new homebrewn thingies this month, first a couple of demos by the Noisy Boyz Crew and later two nice emulators, of the MSX2 and GameGear, by Jos Kwanten. I know for sure that these arent the last emulators which get a N64 release, I've heard rumors of atleast 3 more, one being an arcade emulator, e'nuff said ;)

NEW HOMEBREWN N64 GAME (PUZZLE MASTER 64)
Michael Searl has sent me a game he has created. It's a puzzle like the old ones where slide parts of a disordered picture around to create a normal picture. the only dissadvantages about his game is that you can move the pieces in every possible way, not just horizontical and vertical, plus it doesnt switch to a new picture once you've completed a picture. The game is 80mbit which is quite a lot, but unless you're on a 33.6kbps modem it's worth checking out.
