ULTRA 64 is a comprehensive break down of the Nintendo 64! Each week, hosts Steve Guntli and Woody Ciskowski play a different N64 game, chosen at random, and talk about it, then rank the games overall to create the definitive list of games for the system. Funny and informative, with a great stable of guests.

64 bits of pure greatness
Steve and Woody are great hosts and this is one of my favorite new podcasts. After hearing them hilariously tackle such non classics as Space Invaders (64) and Fighter’s Destiny I’m looking forward to hearing them take on some of the systems real gems like Goldeneye and Jet Force Gemini. Dr. Doak and Oddjob for life!
Good fun and a bright future
The Ultra64 podcast is a fun walk through the complete catalog of games for the Nintendo 64. Done in a random order, the hosts talk about a game after recently playing it. The hosts Steve and Woody are very knowledgeable and host a great show. It's funny, but informative and gives interesting insight into some of the lesser known titles for the platform.
Join us as we play though every N64 game
I am perhaps a little biased as I am one of the hosts of the show.
But is there another podcast out there that covers every single Nintendo 64 game in depth? There is not.
And even if there was, would they discuss such diverse topics as Gleaning the Cube, Truck Knuckles, Extreme-G Chrismas stories, and Magnus Robot Fighter? I imagine they would have more sense than that. Subscribe and review us!
