Tonight, on the Stevetendo show, we’re jumping into pit row with a classic, Mario Kart 64. My brother and I would play Mario Kart 64 for hours and most of the time the races ended with one of us hitting each other. You know what they say, “If you haven’t attempted to beat your brother up after a video game, were you really playing at all?”

I’ll admit it has been quite sometime since I’ve played Mario Kart 64 so the real test will be If I can get the feel for steering back. We'll see if like riding a bike, you never forget how to drive in Mario Kart. That being said, some of my favorite tracks are from Mario Kart 64, like Royal Raceway, Choco Mountain, and Yoshi Valley. These must be other players’ favorites as well since these three were brought back for Mario Kart 8. Set to go live at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET see if I still have what it takes to get first place in Mario Kart 64!

Mario Kart 64 Playthrough
Mario Kart 64 is a timeless classic. Nintendo should bring back the banana chain item!

Shackers who want to join in on the fun can head over to the Shacknews Twitch channel, where you can tune into the Stevetendo show every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 

If you can't make tonight's show, you can watch Monday nights at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET. This year has gone by so quickly and it's hard to believe it's almost over. It's time to end the year with a bang and I can think of only one way to do that, RPG's! Stay tuned to see how we'll be celebrating the holiday season!

If you want to support the Shacknews Twitch channel with more than just watching the great programming, then I suggest you subscribe with Prime Gaming. It’s simple, painless, and best of all, it’s free. Subscribing allows you to support all the great Shacknews Twitch shows, not just the Stevetendo show! Join in the fun as we try to complete these great video games and talk some sports. If you've watched the Stevetendo show, you know we check the scores during the livestream. I would love to talk Jets, Devils, and Mets all night but that’s only a portion of what you come to the show to see.

December is for role-playing games at the Stevetendo show. The more I think about playing Mario RPG, the more I want to make it a yearly/Christmas tradition for the program. This is normally how traditions are started; someone says something and then does it. We'll still need more games to play as Mario RPG won't take too long. It doesn’t have to be an RPG, as long as it’s on the Nintendo Switch Online, then it’s in the running for the Stevetendo show!

The Stevetendo show isn't the only great show the Shacknews Twitch channel has! Make sure to check out the Shacknews Livestream schedule every week to see what other great entertainment the Shacknews family has to offer!
