Nintendo Power v2, September/October, 1988, is the second issue of the magazine. It featured Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. The cover caused quite the controversy due to Simon holding a severed head of Dracula. The issue also contains a strategy guide for Bionic Commando along with a fold-out poster for the game. Simon's Quest, the cover game, is featured heavily in the magazine with a strategy guide, tips and tricks and maps. Other features include guides for the NES games Super Mario Bros. 2 (featured on the cover of Nintendo Power V1), Blaster Master and R.C. Pro-Am.
According to the editors of the magazine, many angry parents contacted Nintendo of America complaining about the graphic cover that featured Simon from Castlevania II with the decapitated head of Dracula in his hands

Despite what others are saying, I think jailbreaking is in its golden age! An iOS 9.3.5 jailbreak, a teaser for a 10.3.2/1 jailbreak, and now this! For those that do not know, axi0mX is known for developing an iPhone 3GS new bootrom exploit, which allows you to jailbreak any version of iOS, a bootrom exploit is something that exploits hardware rather then software, which cannot be patched by Apple without releasing a new device. Yesterday, axi0mx released kloader for 64-bit devices, which is HUGE! One of the main usages for this exploit will be to add 64-bit to CoolBooter, which is a dual-booting utility for iOS 😳. This tool only supports devices with A7 chips right now, but A8 is coming soon! Let's see where this exploit goes 😉. TAGS:
Another #headtohead feature with some cartridge warfare. Time for some N64 titles. Picking out from these was tough as I realise I haven't played any of my N64 games in years and am mostly going on memory.i also realised that with most games I managed to play about 2 stages in before not being able to go further or getting so bored I just gave up. The console was full of games like that. Nintendo Magazine really bigged up a lot of the first party titles on it and shat on anything that got below 75% in the scores (sound familiar?) Meantime we have 2 future racers with space age vehicles hell bend on destroying the competition. Both look fantastic but Wipeout wins in terms of presentation. Sound wise XG has great sound effects but Wipeout has way better music. Gameplay wise is about equal, sonic speeds that equal you smacking against walls constantly. Same with playability, in both you'll be fucked by the second tourney unless you're a master at either. XG is the cheaper of the two but Wipeout is rare and separate and worth every penny. Wipeout wins this but please give both games a try if you want different kinds of racers. Wipeout was on other consoles I know and is available on PS4 but this game stands up well enough alone. #nintendo#gaming#gamer#retro#arcade#n64#videogames#retrocollective#retrogamer#3d#bitwars#64bit#racer#racing#cars#driving#bikes#shooter#action#acclaim#midway#psygnosis#wipeout#future#gamestergram#gamersofinstagram#gamersunite#gamecollector#videogameaddict
This is my 2nd submission to VGA and I got a 85+ GOLD (again). Very happy, cheers!... 🍺🍻
The bad 🐿 of Nintendo! One of my personal favorite game on the console #ConkersBadFurDay . A Mature rated title which is a 3rd person game developped by Rare who includes lots of funny dialog and blood situations. It was critically claims one of the best graphics on the N64. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The game was released the year when the Nintendo64 was discontinued and the sales suffered a lot because of this. Due to his rarety, the price for this game has skyrock over the past 5 years! 📈

I was tagged by @bobby.bob.bobby.bob to chose a game starting with the letter M and I think I'll go with this copy of Micro Machines 64 which I picked up in the London Retro gamer market a few weeks ago! -------------------------
Perhaps some of these great gamers tagged will want to post something starting with the letter S? Think outside the box and try posting something a little less obvious than Sonic or Streetfighter! But more importantly, check out their great profiles here:
As for the game itself, micro machines 64 is basically a port of V3 released originally on the ps1. I'm not sure what the major differences are between both versions as it's been years since I last played V3, but as far as I can tell it's pretty much the same game and probably more down to what controller you prefer using. The n64 version does support 8 players through controller sharing however! (though I can't try it since I have no friends) The game uses 3D graphics and some more dynamic camera angles but thankfully codemasters made the smart decision to retain the same gameplay of the original series, it's still incredibly easy to play even today! I do think Micro machines 96 on the megadrive is my overall favourite in the franchise however, nothing beats a track editor! But don't let that put you off, this is an excellent entry in the franchise!
