Elmo’s Letter Adventure/ Elmo’s Number Journey

August 4, 2018

This week, we're tackling the two most baby-oriented games to ever exisit, ELMO'S LETTER ADVENTURE and NUMBER JOURNEY. We delve into the history of Sesame's Street's divise red monster, and struggle with our all-too-human urge to dunk on games made for children too young to safely operate a Nintendo 64.

Dark Rift / Deadly Arts / Dual Heroes

July 28, 2018

It's a 3-D triple feature, in that we have three fighting games that all start with D, and have literally no other characteristics! Join us as we struggle to find a stand-out character, give SPACE JAM a much-needed dressing-down, and crown a new worst game!

Mega Man 64

July 21, 2018

The legendary Blue Bomber makes his one and only appearance on the N64, and we couldn't be happier, because it gives us a chance to gush about one of our favorite classic game characters. Engage in exuberant robot monkey dancing with us as we delve into the history of the robot formerly known as Rockman, and find out if the character can survive the transition to 3-D.

Starshot: Space Circus Fever

July 14, 2018

It's a big week at Ultra 64! Not only did we get a new theme song, courtesy of the amazing band The Octopus Project, but we found a way to outsource a lot of our work for this episode onto YOU, our brilliant audience! This week, we played STARSHOT: SPACE CIRCUS FEVER, and we had no idea what this game was about, so we reached out to our listeners to submit their own ideas, and you guys delivered in a big way! Tune in to hear all the amazing responses, and then brace yourself for the weirdness of what this French import is ACTUALLY about.

Quake/Quake II (with Phil Ortego)

July 8, 2018

Do you feel that rumbling? It must be the seismic impact of id Software's seismic hit, QUAKE, and it's sequel, QUAKE II! Our old buddy Phil Ortego joins us this week to talk about id's other great shooter franchise, and see if these genre classics translate well to the N64. Also, some forbidden words, dueling Carmacks, and plenty of love for Nine Inch Nails.

Battlezone: Rise of the Black Dogs

July 1, 2018

This week, we try out the ambitious shooter/strategy hybrid BATTLEZONE: RISE OF THE BLACK DOGS, and discover a series that has stealthily developed a cult following that is still thriving to this day. We discuss the gulf that exists between PC and console gamers, wrestle with some flawed mechanics, and marvel at just what a crazy year 1998 was for games.
