In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#85: Rogue Squadron for N64
I played the heck out of this game (except for when I was playing GOLDEN EYE). This game is so much fun, it is the reason I kept my N64 (that and GOLDEN EYE). One of the best parts about it was the variety of ships you could choose from, including the X-Wing, Y-Wing and A-Wing. Plus, there were secret ships you could unlock like the Millennium Falcon, TIE Interceptor and even a 1969 Buick Electra (the designers car). My favorite secret unlockable ship was the Naboo Starfighter from Episode I. This game came out in December 1998, 6 months BEFORE Episode I came out. The developers hide the ship and released the code to unlock it after the movie came out. Pretty awesome. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must head home and hook up my N64.
