RIP Nintendo 64

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the passing of Nintendo 64...

The only notable absentee at E3 this year was Nintendo 64, a victim of its owner's success. Sin & Punishment and Animal Forest were apparently expected to show up at Nintendo's booth, but only the GameCube version of the latter did in practice, and little was said to explain away the missing software. Apparently the only N64 game that was on display was Activision's conversion of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, and while that will sell in bulk to owners of the console, it does seem as though we've witnessed the end of an era, one which started out as a press fantasy and for the most part quickly became a disappointing reality. Lets hope history doesn't start repeating itself any time soon.
