This week we're witnessing an iconic team-up that took an event as big as the Olympics to manifest! Mario and Sonic set their differences aside long enough to share billing in the MARIO & SONIC series, taking them to various Olympic games to compete in mini-game versions of real-life Olympic events. This time, we're talking about the games for the …
 
We're saluting those about to rock this week with GUITAR HERO LIVE! GUITAR HERO was a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon that spurred most everyone to drop money on colorful plastic guitars, but a glut of sequels and imitators overwhelmed the market. LIVE is Activision's attempt to revitalize the series, with a new play style, a live stage show aestheti…
 
We're assembling heroes this week in every sense of the word! This week, we're closing the loop on both BATMAN and MORTAL KOMBAT by playing some games that highlight the best of both. First, the NetherRealm-developed fighting game INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US, where DC heroes and villains throw down in a MK-esque battle royale! Then, we're checking bac…
 
Our good friend Elliot Jay O'Neill is back for another bonus episode! This time, instead of discussing a particular game, we're diving deep into amiibo, Nintendo's answer to the toys-to-life craze! Unlike SKYLANDERS, amiibos are more free-floating, working with several games rather than having one platform built around them, and this has helped the…
 
We're revisiting a couple of classic game shows this week! It's been a while since we played JEOPARDY and WHEEL OF FORTUNE on the Nintendo 64; how have the games changed in the interim? Ailish Collins returns to help us spin that wheel and question those answers! And she may have underestimated Steve's propensity for trivia... Hosted by Steve Guntl…
 
This week we're cracking into one of the biggest series of all time, the unstoppable juggernaut that is Activision's CALL OF DUTY! The series has been dominating sales charts and online bandwidth for years, but for those of us who tune in and out of the series, is there still anything to recommend from the earlier generation? We'll find out this we…
 
We'd planned to make this an all-Dreamworks episode, but just because the Penguins couldn't make it, that's no reason to stop the party! Ailish Collins joins us this week as we make a hard pivot from animation adaptations to misbegotten party games! We played THE CROODS: PREHISTORIC PARTY, a minigame collection based on the hit movie; we follow it …
 
We're travelling to magical, anime-inspired worlds this week! Firstly, we're taking flight with RODEA: THE SKY SOLDIER, the oft-delayed action game from the creator of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG! Then, we're looking at SHANTAE: 1/2 GENIE HERO, a breakthrough Kickstarter success that finally gave the plucky, hair-whipping heroine her first proper hit! Get 2…
 
Get ready to experience the brutality of nature... in the most adorable possible way, of course. This week, we're playing PIKMIN 3, which for a long time was considered THE reason to own a Wii U! This third chapter in Shigeru Miyamoto's strategy/action hybrid adds three new astronauts, two new varieties of Pikmin, and tons of new abilities, locatio…

Activision's groundbreaking series lets you scan real-life figurines into the action with a special portal; luckily, friend of the show Neal Crow has a wide variety of figures for us to try out! This week, we're talking about all 5 …
 
Warm up those pipes, because this week we're talking about some singing games! We played two games with different approaches to karaoke that come bundled with their own hefty plastic mics! Lynsey Pennington comes by to help us warble our way through the odd, party-centric SING PARTY and the TV show adaptation THE VOICE: I WANT YOU! Hosted by Steve …
 
This bonus episode brings us back into the world of METROID for Samus' latest, and biggest, adventure yet.

It's time for another bonus episode, courtesy of our awesome Aussie Patreon supporter CJ Baker! This time, CJ joins us to play DISCO ELYSIUM, a trippy, funny, singularly cool RPG/murder mystery!

One of Nintendo's biggest franchises is back, and while the name may be clunky, the thrills are real. We played SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR WII U, the game that expanded the series onto multiple platforms and made the series a sort of living Hall of Fame museum! We dig deep on the features and gameplay, mess with the ridiculous number of control options,…
 
This week, we're playing the console versions of the games that defined early mobile gaming! First, we're diving into the bird-flinging phenomenon with ANGRY BIRDS TRILOGY, containing the original smash-hit ANGRY BIRDS, it's follow-up ANGRY BIRDS SEASONS, and the movie tie-in ANGRY BIRDS RIO. Then we're taking the irate avians to outer space with A…
 
We were prepared to bring you some MADDEN football action in time for the Super Bowl, but our game disc had different plans, so we've pulled the ultimate audible. Instead of high-impact gridiron action, we're going down to the farm with the goofy sim FUNKY BARN! While we're going in with zero preparation and no research, we try to capture the essen…
 
It's time once again for one of our Patreon-supported bonus episodes! Our favorite Aussies Elliot Jay O'Neill and BT Calloway are back, and this time they had us play the Wild West/Samurai shooter RED STEEL 2! The original RED STEEL was a launch game for the Wii which failed to deliver on it's promise of high-octane katana/pistol action, but for it…
 
Racing games were a dime a dozen on the Nintendo 64, but they're a rare treat on the Wii U, and this week we're playing three of them! Firstly, we're playing the AAA racing adventure NEED FOR SPEED: MOST WANTED; then, it's all about family as we saddle up with FAST & FURIOUS: SHOWDOWN; finally, we're breaking out the interlocking orange tracks to p…
 
This week, we're checking back in with the Kongs for the first time since DONKEY KONG 64! While that game was a fun but bloated exercise in excess, TROPICAL FREEZE is lean and mean, a tough, 2-D platformer that brings the DKC series back to it's roots. Hosted by Steve Guntli and Woody Ciskowski Logo by Corinne Kempen Theme song: "Truck" by The Octo…
 
Haven't heard of LEGEND OF KAY? Don't worry, you're not alone, but if it's earning an anniversary edition 10 years after it's original release, it must be good, right? Right? This German import blends Zelda-style exploration with kung-fu and platforming, starring a hot-tempered young cat who needs to save the world from an army of invading gorillas…
 
One of the very last games to get a physical release on the Wii U, the hit indie AXIOM VERGE had a long, strange trip to hitting the console. This week, our old friend Aaron George stops by to help us decide if this Metroidvania was worth the wait. We're charting the history of the game's one-man production, talking about the cool indie publisher L…
 
We're sneaking into the new year with TOM CLANCY'S SPLINTER CELL: BLACKLIST, the final entry in Ubisoft's acclaimed stealth series. We're checking back in with Sam Fisher and company after a long time away from the series, and a lot's changed, but the same low-light stealth antics still shine through. Hosted by Steve Guntli and Woody Ciskowski Logo…
 
Happy New Year! As a special bonus to celebrate our flawless victory over 2021, here's part one of our new Ultra 64 DD series on the MORTAL KOMBAT series.

Wonder-eyes, Red! This week, we're playing THE WONDERFUL 101, a weirdo cult artifact and one of the Wii U's most notable exclusive releases! PlatinumGames' hyperactive action game puts you in control of up to 100 masked superheroes who can join together into elaborate shapes to help fight an alien invasion! It's all super creative, but is it any fu…
 
We've got a special bonus episode for you, courtesy of our top-tier Patreon supporter and good friend Scott Burger!

Join us as we cele…
 
This week we don the cowl and cape to take on two of Batman's best adventures, BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY and BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS! The ARKHAM games are some of the best action-adventure games ever, but how well do these sprawling, cinematic adventures translate to the Wii U? To hear a break down of the full ARKHAM series, as well as every other BATMAN …
 
It's the return of MEGA MAN... sort of. MIGHTY NO. 9, from former Capcom legend Keiji Inafune, apes the style and gameplay of the Blue Bomber almost exactly, but something has gone missing during the game's famously tortured production. This week we're charting the game's early Kickstarter success and long road to release, and seeing if this game a…
 
For our latest bonus episode, we're delving deep into the human mind for the stunning action game HELLBLADE: SENUA'S SACRIFICE!

EDIT: So, so sorry for all the technical hiccups this week; we have no idea what's causing them, but this should take care of all final issues. One of the best-selling ZELDA games of all time makes the leap to the Wii U with a stellar visual upgrade, but do the clearer visuals cast the game's flaws into relief? That's what we're discussing this wee…
 
Edit: we're reuploading this episode because listeners reported some weird technical glitches where the episode restarted in the middle; hopefully this will take care of it! We've got another bonus episode courtesy of one of our top-tier Patreon supporters! Sean Neal-Lunsford joins us to talk about an all-timer, the hugely influential BioWare RPG S…
 
We had a slight interruption in our planned game this week; luckily, the ever-reliable Rayman has stepped in to pick up the slack! We played RAYMAN LEGENDS, the sequel to the hit 2011 reboot RAYMAN ORIGINS! This slick, funny 2D platformer was designed to be a Wii U exclusive before going multiplatform, so this version boasts some features you won't…
 
Thanks to the generosity of our Wonder Red-tier Patrons at Patreon.com/ultra64pod, we've got a couple of bonus episodes coming your way this month!

Just in time for Halloween, we're diving back into the world of RESIDENT EVIL for the one and only series entry on the Wii U! We played RESIDENT EVIL: REVELATIONS, an HD upgrade of a handheld game that still manages to be visually dazzling and super goopy! Local zombie expert Lynsey Pennington joins us to discuss how this game differs from it's con…
 
We've got a double-dose of the old webhead this week! We played two games loosely based on the 2012 Andrew Garfield AMAZING SPIDER-MAN movies. The movies were little-loved, but the games provide the early DNA for the webslinger's future adventures. The question is, is there a reason to go back to these one's when Insomniac's game has perfected the …
 
Ever wonder what it would be like to play DONKEY KONG as Link? Or battle the tree in KIRBY'S ADVENTURE while being attacked by Boos? Then this re-re-remix is for you!

Augment your ears, because this week we're heading into the future for DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, Square Enix's epic reboot of the classic shooter. The series has always put an emphasis on choice, using branching paths to tell its story, but does that equate to a fun game? Plus: we have lots of opinions about N64 on Switch and the new Mario movie! …
 
Roll out and transform, because this week, it's TRANSFORMERS: Redemption? The last time we played a game featuring the iconic robots in disguise, it wound up being one of the 5 worst games on the Nintendo 64, so the series has a lot to make up for. Luckily, neither of these made us sick at all! We played TRANSFORMERS PRIME, a high-octane beat-em-up…
 
Rock on! We've got a new bonus episode courtesy of our top-tier Patreon supporters! Elliot Jay O'Neill is back, along with first-timer Danny Rosewell, to talk about GUITAR HERO III: LEGENDS OF ROCK, the biggest and maybe the best of the storied GUITAR HERO franchise and one of Woody's favorite games ever!

Who's got big balls? WIPEOUT does, apparently! This week, we're playing two games based on the summer game show sensation, and we're tagging in our friend Delaney Saul to help us manage the madness! We played WIPEOUT 3, which attempts to capture the obstacle course goofiness of the show in a simple platformer, and WIPEOUT: CREATE & CRASH, which let…
 
Hop in your Arwing and join us as we take on Fox McCloud and company's big Wii U adventures, STAR FOX ZERO and STAR FOX GUARD! The former is STAR FOX as you remember it, with lots of aerial combat and barrel-rolling action, but upgraded with beautiful graphics and some new vehicles to cause carnage with. GUARD takes the series into untested territo…
 
We're covering a ton of ground this week; we're discussing nothing less than the biggest game of all time, and we've rarely been more out of our depth! MINECRAFT is a sensation unlike anything else in gaming history, but our intrepid hosts have almost no experience with the block-busting blockbuster, so we've tagged in an actual 9-year-old to help …
