We all miss some of the great N64 titles. Who doesn’t want to get in a rousing round of Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, or Mario Tennis? But you traded your N64 in, or threw it out when the next gen systems like Gamecube, PS2, and Xbox came out. Hell, at this point you might even have a Wii, Xbox 360, or PS3- There may not even be room for another system in your TV unit!
Well, if you’re just trying to show your friends the how you can nail the secret tunnel in Koopa Troopa Beach or the ridiculous shortcut jump on Rainbow Road oh, say, two out of three laps, there is hope. No system? No problem! UltraHLE is a high level emulator that you can download and use on your computer to play all the classic N64 games! That’s right! You can once again lay the Smash down on your friends’ candy asses (even you lame Kirby players out there who just fly away from danger and press down-b). Using an adapter from the ZTNet Store, you can connect your N64 controller to a USB port (so you lame Kirby players won’t have to re-learn how to become a stupid heavy brick).
The Ultra High Level Emulator is now several versions deep and has been significantly debugged and improved to make the N64 playing experience comparable to the original console, with the notable improvement that you never have to blow into the cartridges or game console again. The keyboard controls are fully customizable- but this does not even matter as a controller should not be hard to come by and the adapter will allow you to play the way you are used to, so why use even a decent keyboard interface? Unless you’re that guy of course.
If you’re into the idea of playing some old school N64 games, I suggest you go out today and search the internet for a download of this thing that is compatible with your OS and browser. Then call me up and let’s play some Kart or Smash. Come at me bro!
