About N64 Today

N64 Today is a blog for people who still enjoy playing and collecting Nintendo 64.

I created the site in January 2017 to provide useful and enjoyable content for N64 veterans and newcomers alike.

On this site, you can find the latest N64 news, including new developments in the N64 modding community.

My reviews tell you whether an N64 game is still fun to play today.

I try to avoid discussing a game’s development history, impact or legacy in my reviews. Instead, I simply focus on how playable and entertaining it is now.

After all, just because a game was amazing in 1998, it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily still fun to play now. Find out more about my game review scoring system.

Media appearances

Looking for an N64 expert for a news story, documentary or book you’re producing? I may be able to help!

In 2022, I appeared in GoldenEra, a documentary that tells the incredible inside story of the creation and legacy of GoldenEye 007. I also provided expert commentary for Alyse Knorr’s book about the making of the game.
