In 2002, the GameCube entered its first full year with a bang. The system already had a number of high quality exclusives, but things were really just getting started. Our first two Nintendo games to duke it out in the new year are NBA Courtside 2002 and Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. That's right, we have a straightforward basketball sim starring Kobe Bryant and a psychological horror game which tries to convince you that you're going insane. Could these games be any more suited toward comparison? Yes, probably.

As always, each game is judged 0-10 on three categories:

  1. Legacy / Importance
  2. The Test of Time (How well does it hold up)
  3. The Fun Factor

Regardless of those three ratings, the two intrepid hosts will then reveal who they believe should move on in the tournament simultaneously. Will they agree, or do things get hairy here? Can Kobe dunk on Dyack?!

Look for new episodes of Cube Fight at the incredible pace of once per month. We'll see you in October.

I stayed up all night playing this game the day it came out.  Loved it.  Never beat it on any of my play throughs.  I've been meaning to go back to it.  Also got me to read Lovecraft.  Honestly I think a remaster/remake would be better serving than a spiritual successor by the incompetent Dyack.  Idk I guess creative types aren't good at managing a business.
