Covering the N64 for nine years

It’s been another year already? N64squid has been around for 9 years now, and the Nintendo 64 was first launched in Japan 27 years ago. Sometimes when I go back and find my old posts, I do get a little bit nostalgic about my nostalgia. Odd how that works, isn’t it?

Now onto what has happened this year. I’ve been a judge on this year’s 64brew Game Jam, whose theme was “Spooky” where I got to play and evaluate a whole bunch of new homebrew games. It was a lot of fun (and a lot more work than I anticipated)!

The Price Checker section has been officially deprecated after two years of inactivity due to changes in the eBay API. Now if you want to search the eBay listings, you’ll have to pay for an eBay store front (or be a bit cheeky and try to web scrape). I decided to just let it die and post the source on Gitlab.

On a brighter note – I’ve opened a new section about some of my personal projects outside of N64 Squid. It’s a bit bare for now since I’ve only included projects that I’ve already written about in the past. Though there are a few that I do want to add in the future.

Apart from all that, I’ve been taking my learning of computer science a bit more seriously this year. I started learning a lot more about programming in C as shown in the Tic Tac Toe game I made over the summer, and a much bigger project I’ve been working on for about 9 months now which I’ll post about when the time comes.

That’s about it for now. There haven’t been that many announcements or discoveries this year that I can think of, but I am looking forward to what the next year has to offer! I don’t have anything big planned for the 10th anniversary, but we’ll see what happens.
