Starting today, 1080 Snowboarding, Jet Force Gemini, and Harvest Moon are all available for online service subscribers.
Let’s start with the classic boarding game of 1080 Snowboarding. This may be the game for you if you live in a cold climate this time of year. 1080 is an early attempt at 3D snowboarding mechanics that, if you haven’t played it in a while, will likely feel a little chunky. But there’s no denying that it was one of the winter sports juggernauts back in the day and is still consistently referenced in the genre.
We also have a retro feeling cozy game in Harvest Moon 64.
“Clear the land, till the soil, and then plant, water, and sell your crops for profit. Raise and care for livestock, including cows, chickens and sheep. Or meander about town and visit the shops while getting to know the other townsfolk.”
Last but certainly not least is Jet Force Gemini.
This 3D action shooter hit North American shelves in late 1999 with its bug-squashing and three playable characters. The space force is taking down an evil bug empire that’s terrorizing the galaxy, so who other than a brother and sister and their trusty dog to save it all!
Jet Force Gemini was also developed by Rare Ltd., a studio synonymous with the Nintendo 64 and created classics like Banjo-Kazooie, Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, and Donkey Kong 64.
