Find out what we have planned for our seven-day celebration of the GameCube.
With the Wii currently experiencing a slight dip in new releases, it's the perfect time for us to set the record straight for a little game console that goes by the name of Nintendo GameCube. Its five year history had many ups, downs, twists and turns; so many, in fact, that it's going to take us a whole week to pay our respects to our fallen brother.
Since the GameCube was always all about the games, it should follow that this week be all about them, too. So, all week long we'll be taking a look back at the best GameCube games ever created with a feature appropriately entitled Nintendo World Report's Greatest GameCube Games. Every day this week at 12:00 Noon PT, we'll unveil a group of games that we consider to be the must-owns of the GameCube generation, along with some other stuff thrown in there for good measure. By this Friday, you'll know which GC games you absolutely, positively need to play. (If you haven't played them yet, shame on you. If you have, pull out your Wii and play them again!)
Here's a little preview of what games we'll add to the feature each day:
- Monday: Opening Day
- Tuesday: Quintessential Quirkiness
- Wednesday: Third Party Elite
- Thursday: Fantastic Franchises
- Friday: Defining the Generation
- Saturday: Extra 1 - Best of the Multiplatform
- Sunday: Extra 2 - Greatest GameCube Hardware
The full special is now up for you to enjoy. We're not hiding anything else, so if you've been avoiding it to take it all in at once, this is the time to do it.
Our Greatest GameCube Games feature is just one part of the celebration. In addition to the daily reveal, we'll also be paying homage to the GameCube with our regular features. Have a look-see:
The Wii isn't the only Nintendo console that can play classic games on the cheap.
The podcast crew talks about the good times they had with the 'Cube to go with the usual RFN tomfoolery.
Do know your GameCube game music? This is where you can prove it. The winner will take home two valuable GameCube games!
The Greatest GameCube Games list is complete. However, someone thinks that we made a major omission that is big enough to render the list invalid. The NWR response is inside, as well as more GC love.
Be sure to visit Nintendo World Report daily and give the GameCube the respect it deserves. The GameCube would do the same for you!
