The lights are on
Believe it or not, this week marks our 100th episode of Replay. As such, we decided that we should feature a legendary title that we haven't revisited before. I landed on Super Mario 64, Mario's first 3D adventure and the game that helped usher in 3D gaming.
Watch below to see us explore Princess Peach's castle and go toe-to-toe with Bowser. Be sure to stick around for the Roulette game, as we picked another title that most gamers have fond memories of.

Man I loved Super Mario 64! Used to spend hours playiing this and Sheadows of the Empire.
Finally played through SM64 last year (I never had a N64), and it held up even better than I thought it would, despite the dated camera. Easily the best platformer of that generation, and one of the best platformers ever. But of course, everyone here already knows that, or at least should. :P
I remember getting my N64 and Mario 64 for my birthday back in August of 97. Man was that a good birthday.
Mario games have never been as fun or compelling as Donkey Kong for me, at least. My first console was the SNES DK Country Bundle, so that may be to blame. It would be really awesome if you guys did a Replay for DK64 followed by Diddy Kong Racing, you know, like for like.
Except DKR has planes and hovercraft, too, just saying. And that DK music!
Pretty sure Bowser is King Koopa, just a bigger, fire-breathing Koopa
