Yippee ki yay! It looks like yet another cancelled Nintendo 64 game has been discovered - this time it's the mythical Die Hard 64 from Bits Studios.
What does this have to do with Gamecube, PS2, or Xbox?
Did you read the article?
Yeah....nothing about Gamecube, PS2, or Xbox....
EDIT: probably bc of Vendetta tag
This was posted here on N4G like 1-2 weeks ago.
Why is it still considered "news" ?
I liked die hard arcade on the saturn. But the psx die hard sucked.
Die Hard Trilogy was kind of hard to take, I agree.
I personally have great memories of Die Hard Trilogy. My younger brother and I played the hell out of it.
Yea the 3rd person portion of Die Hard Trilogy was awesome me and my older brother played it a ton.
FITgamer is that you my older bro?
Die hard Arcade was a blast!
What?! Die Hard Trilogy was amazing for its time.
samuel jackson said "f this game" and went on to do voice acting for vice city
No. Sam Jackson had nothing to do with Vice City. He DID, however, voice the character of Officer Tenpenny in San Adreas.
You know what I meant
yea but San Andreas is like 12 yrs after Die Hard tirlogy though
I would totally play this
I gotta be honest i like what i saw. Almost wish there would be a new die hard game.
Dont trust John Clay! Rest in peace Alan Rickman!
That actually looks really good for an N64 game... Let alone a prototype
This could be a great 'Did U Know Gaming' episode .
Cool to see when these rare unreleased games are found. As for why it didn't come out, my guess would be that since in 1999 the Nintendo 64 (and that whole console gen) were right at the very tail end of things. PS2 came out in 2000, GC in 2001. So from a business standpoint it made sense to can the N64 version but recycle what dev work they could into the Die Hard: Vendetta game that they did release in 2002 for Xbox/PS2/GC. You can definitely tell Vendetta used a lot of the same dev work. If you really want to play this, basically find a copy of DH: Vendetta and play it since the gfx were better and it was finished. Still a meh game though from reviews, got a 6/10 and reviews still said it seemed unfinished.
As it turned out, Bit Studios that did it only put out a handful of games after DH: Vendetta before closing. They never did actually release any N64 games, since this and the other N64 title they were working on both were cancelled.
I'd lost so many quarters on Die Hard arcade. Wish this would run on a raspberry pi.
Screw Raspberry π. Homebrew is the shit, lol!
What does that even mean? Wouldn't a RetroPie setup be considered homebrew? I'm only asking because i'd love to be able to run those 3D Arcade Games without having to build a larger rig just to run them.
In response to your other comment:
Homebrew is free. I can run NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Sega, Atari, Arcade (MAME), N64 and even PS1 games through the Homebrew emulators I installed on my old Wii. All I needed to buy was a SanDisc card large enough to accommodate all the files. The Rspberry Pi is a nice little console, granted, but I can get all that it has to offer for free. I guess it just comes down to paying for convenience if you don't want or know how to mod the Wii or Wii U.
Die Hatd games use to be fun.
DieHard Arcade on Saturn > All movie games period
