L is Real[edit]

Firstly, can anyone even prove the plaque reads "L is Real 2041"? I saw gibberish. But people will see anything if they look hard enough. If it says "L is real", which, to be perfectly honest, I don't think it does, then it was a joke, that the game's designers obviously thought would never be found. Did I hear something about "L is real 2401" or "2401 Eternal Star" in Legend Of Zelda? Any information will be helpful. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.247.202.127 (talk) 15:32, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

All the reliable and verifiable information we have is in the article. Please see the Rumors section. (Guyinblack25 talk 16:04, 6 August 2008 (UTC))

There must be more to it. How can you even prove it says anything. Then again, if there's nothing to it, maybe Nintendo should just say that that's NOT WHAT IT SAYS? And that's apparently not the only mention of "L is real". I heard something about it being scrawled onto a wall in Luigi's Mansion. HAs anybody seen this. I don't want to drop the issue until I understand it. But thanks Guyinblack25. At least you tried. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.247.202.127 (talk) 21:54, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Removed speculative comments leaning towards an internet forum discussion. (Guyinblack25 talk 22:37, 10 March 2009 (UTC))

A second possibility is that it says 'Eternal Star', referencing Mario Party. This is supported by the statue itself. A very throughout analysis of this was done in this webpage http://eternalstar.50webs.com/ . ~ Aurora — Preceding unsigned comment added by AuroraDragon (talkcontribs) 23:13, 15 May 2014 (UTC)


Proposed Addition to "Impact and Legacy"[edit]

Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve Corporation, has called Super Mario 64 his favorite game of all time, saying that while Doom convinced him that video games were the future of entertainment, it was Super Mario 64 that convinced him that video games were art.[1]

Someone's Deleting my SUB HEADINGS![edit]

I am going to put the sub headings back on. why the hell. the article is good at that point. it's best at that! 72.181.218.180 (talk) 16:38, 14 February 2014 (UTC) Jct400thz (talk) 16:39, 14 February 2014 (UTC) that was me. ugh i keep forgetting.

Your subheadings are non-standard and sound like a game guide. "Advanced Mechanics" and "Power-Ups" are really not encyclopedic. Andrevan@ 16:45, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
These headings are really unnecessary. There's no need to separate into subsections. Only saying "the article is good at that point" is not a strong argument to including them. --ThomasO1989 (talk) 17:07, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Oh. I guess I should agree with that. I though that adding sub-headings made enough sense, but I guess i was wrong. I'm sorry for adding the sub headings, and making a doubled message. that was a network incident. 72.181.218.180 (talk) 16:36, 15 February 2014 (UTC) aw poop!

Wii U Virtual Console[edit]

Super Mario 64 is now available on the Wii U Virtual console[1] . The article should be updated to reflect this. Lionelbee (talk) 00:31, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Miyamoto interview[edit]

There's a Miyamoto interview in the Feb 1996 issue of Next Generation (magazine) that might be useful for the dev section.
