Hello everyone I want to tell you my story, it was kinda weird what happened to me when I got my Nintendo 64, so please listen me carefully, and sorry for my English, I'm from Argentina:
One day, fifteen years ago, it was Christmas and I wanted a Sega Genesis, Model 3, because I wanted to start my game collection, I had a NES but I wanted that Sega a lot. Instead they gave me a Nintendo 64, I was a bit disappointed, not because the Nintendo, it was amazing! But I was disappointed because it didn't included games and box, but that didn't matter I was excited so I bought a couple of games like Command and Conquer and Banjoo Kazooie, but I always wanted to play with that plumber, Mario, so I bought the game and I was very happy back then.
In September of 1999 my game just broke because of overuse (I think) so I had to go to my nearest store, Akihabara (A store from Argentina, not the store from Japan that you are thinking) with my Nintendo and the cartridge, I finally entered the store and there was Diego, the one who was attending the store, so he looked at the cartridge and he asked me:
-What's going on?
I told him that my cartridge broke and my Nintendo won't work, I gave him my stuff and he was busy repairing the console and the game, so I took my time and looked at the games on the store but there was a Nintendo 64, bigger than the normal ones, with SM64 on it, I grabbed the cartridge, it was more heavy that the normal ones so I told Diego what's up with that console and he replied:
-It's a Nintendo 64 with internet connection, you have to put the modem to play with another people.
I was shocked, it was like DreamCast but better, so I asked if I could buy the console, suddenly he was a little nervous, he said:
-Ok, I'll give it to you for free, but I will have to take your old N64.
-Ok, no problem!
I made a few questions on how to connect it and other stuff, he said that they are only twenty in existence, but they are all been sold, he said he created it and I asked with what's up with the game, and he told me that the game was modified to play with another people on different consoles, so I got to my house and plugged in the console, and played.
There wasn't a title screen and no Mario face, instead there was two options: Singleplayer and Multiplayer. I started Singleplayer and the screen fade black, like forever, so I had to reset. I choose Multiplayer and the game started in the castle, my character had the Mario shape and form but the suit was black. I went to the Bob Omb level and the screen fade black, and then it showed my character in the level, it was beautiful but the sky was red, I encountered with other people, one in particular was called DON'T FOLLOW ME (I was called Player and the names on the people appeared on top of the character) but DON'T FOLLOW ME had no eyes and his suit was black, it was scary, so I followed him until the two of us reached at the top of the mountain, there was a door, but there was no house to enter, just a door in the middle, DON'T FOLLOW ME entered the door so I followed him, when I entered the door the screen faded to black, that was what I believed but it was a dark room, my character appeared in front of another character called GOODBYE, it was kinda weird, my character couldn't move so I only stared there watching, so the screed fade black and I could hear Bowser laugh, (yeah the Bowser laughing sound when you fail at a mission) and nothing more! I reset and nothing, it wasn't working, so I put another game and nothing, it started to smell like dust and I checked the N64, it was messed up.
Once again I went to Akihabara and the store was closed like forever, when I looked at the store I felt like I was being observed, so I got to my house and left my Nintendo 64 with everything in the living room.
Three days later in the middle of the night I started hearing sounds from the living room, like if they were grabbing a console, then I heard a door noise, someone robbed my Nintendo 64, I went to my living room and nothing was there, the door was open, suddenly my mom and dad appears and they ask me if I'm okay, I said I was fine, they asked me:
-I dont know...
I was confused, now I have a question, who robbed the Nintendo 64, Diego (because of his behavior) or the evil Mario in a black suit?
I don't know, I'm a little scared...
