gamecube purchase!
« on: February 21, 2003, 06:08:12 PM »
well, as i said, i traded in my n64 w/ all 20 games or so tonight and 3 crappy ps2 games of mine for only about $85 in credit at EB, but that was enough to help buy a gamecube. i bought a platinum unit and i picked the starfox adventures game to go with it (never been a big fan of metroid) i also bought a used memory card for only $6 (was almost out of money and would have been totally broke if i would have bought a new one) i havent had time to hook it all up yet, but im really excited.

I didn't care much for Star Fox, but a decent rental. Get Metroid and Animal Crossing!

well, last night was my first night with the machine.
here are a few of the things i love about it:
A.) size of the system itself, it's so compact.
B.) controller: fits perfectly in my hands, i even like it better than the ps2 controller
C.) no loading time (for starfox atleast)
D.) very detailed & rich graphics (starfox)
plus a ton of other great stuff. i think tonight i might go out and rent a game or 2 or if i can find some cash i might go buy a game.

yeah that is a sweet car, got any pics?
you should rent Eternal Darkness and Metroid Prime. those are my two favourites at the moment that are cube exclusives. there are also plenty of 3rd party games worth looking at, if you haven't already for your ps2: timesplitters 2, need for speed, medal of honor, nightfire, etc.

thanks everyone. yes i have pictures of the car, i'm not sure how to post them here, im used to doing it on another forum. if someone could give me directions i'd be happy to give them out... they're all about 4 months old so all i had at the time was the TRD kit. i plan on getting an LCD screen one day, maybe around christmas time, and i cant decide if i want to put the PS2 in it or the gamecube... the GC matches the exterior but i dont play my ps2 too much. ah well... tonight i think im going to battle the rain and go get another game, maybe super smash bros. if i can find it for $30. if not then im not sure what ill get.

There are many good games that are out, and there seems to be an overwhelming list of "will be" games. . . I don't know where I'll find the money.  You keep your eyes peeled, though.  There are some great games for Gamecube.

Welcome aboard!

Anyways, I liked Star Fox alot and would have bought it, if I hadn't beat it during the rental period.  Other must-have's are Super Smash Bro's Melee and Super Monkey Ball 2.  And of course, RE, if you're a fan.
