Beat every N64 game - 2021 - 242/303


Recommended Posts

If we're accepting clears on Easy difficulty -- and I believe we are? -- then Knockout Kings 2000 is done:

I beat Career mode as Arschbad (loose German for "ass bath"), the balding heavyweight with the pink hair and green mustache.

Once you win the heavyweight title, you get an unexpected fight against Ali. It seems like beating Ali should be the win condition -- you get credits afterward -- but maybe there are other conditions for other weight classes. Dunno what happens if you lose to Ali, as I beat him on my first try.

Good info, both about the ass bath and the Ali fight. I'll try and find out if anything is different in any other weight class, then I'll update the requirement.

I beat AeroGauge. Sort of a goofy racing game that tries to be really serious. The music sounds like it's from a SNES game, which isn't a bad thing I guess.

It's an odd duck of a racing game. Even on Novice difficulty, perfectly hugging every turn, and staying in the air (which is faster than staying on the ground) you'll get MAYBE sixth place (out of eight) tops. You can even earn a respectable pole position in the qualifying round, but that exact same performance will get you dead last in the actual race.

The manual casually mentions that you can get a boost when you drift around a corner, it doesn't say that this is absolutely essential to progressing through the game at all, but it absolutely is. And that boost is very temperamental, you have to execute it near perfectly or else your speed drops way down. Drifting around corners kills your speed, it's worthless unless you get the boost. This ain't Mario Kart.

There's also a boost to be had at the starting line if you hold gas and brake at the same time, then let go of the brake at "Go." I had to watch videos to learn that one. Every opponent boosts right off the line so it doesn't matter if you earned a good position, you have to boost off the line to keep it.

If you can manage to do the drift boost reliably-ish, then the game actually begins and you can start seeing the other tracks. Luckily there are only four of them lol, so getting through the grand prix is actually no big deal. But apparently this is what racing is going to be like in the future, so I guess we'd better get used to it.
