I have finally saved up enough money for a next gen system. I can't get an x-Box, unfortunately. But I am getting a gamecube, and a whole bunch of my friends have it, so I can trade games with them. Not only that, but I am getting THUG, a BIGG huge memory card, a wabvebird, and the free Zelda disk(The first two on NES, and the two on 64). My mom won't let me get an x-box(she says that there are too many violent games on it :rolleyes: ), but I don't care! I finally get a next-gen console! And I get it tomarrow! So if I am not on here for a good month or so, It's either because my sniper failed to protect me, or I am playing games.

:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
YAY!

EDIT:Let me rephrase that. I saved up enough money for a gamecube. My parents and relatives are buying me everything else.

He thats why its good to live alone (to where you can buy what you want when you want it), but sadly it has a draw back, the money is needed to buy all this...but I'm saving for a cable line so screw consoles :)...although If I did have the money for the xbox and the cable line I would do that because of all the pimp ass games for that system. And for your presious gamecube, the only games that would be worth playing is the Rouge Squadron games, and oh the new mariokart...cause the old one was hours of fun :)

Oof, too bad you couldn't get the XBox. I own a Gamecube aswell, but I'm selling it soon. Too many kiddy games released for it for my tastes. Now the XBox has some kick@ss games on it, including the upcoming Deus Ex:Invisible war, and True Crime:Streets of LA, both of which are packed with gaming goodness;)

Well I own XBOX, PS2, and I am getting Gamecube for Christmas. Anyway to my point, PS2 is outdated I think the graphics suck and processor 233mhz. XBOX is great but is limited on good games, graphics are the best and processor is 733mhz. Gamecube has lots a games although some are very kiddy like. Graphics are very good but XBOX could do better, graphics powered by ATI. Processor in 400mhz range. Overall I am sick of the consoles I have so I am getting gamecube really for Rogue Leader and Rebel Strike.

Actually, there's a second Zelda bonus disk you can get now for buying a Gamecube. It contains the first Legend of Zelda, Zelda II, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Extra incentive for buying a Gamecube, especially for Zelda fanatics.

I've had a Gamecube since Christmas of 2001, and it's been a blast to play. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, BongoBob!

Besides, the more kid-geared games are pretty cool(Mario Kart: Double Dash for instance, as well as Wind Waker).

Man alive...those were all classics and utterly amazing fun to play, I have fond memories of each :) You may just have helped tip me in favour of finally getting a GC myself Never! Of course, Wind Waker is also unbelievably good, well worth getting a GC for alone perhaps...

Who has the coolest Avatar, Bell or Tyrion? If I was bored enough to create a top 10, they'd both be in there :) TBH, I'm glad I'm not THAT bored...

the GC is a great system, and has some pretty awesome games (playing viewtiful joe while i wait for soul calibur to arrive).

Nintendo on the other hand are making horrendous marketing decisions with it. WHY have they only brought out 1 online game, it must be obvious by now that xbox live was a good idea. why do they insist on annoying all other publishers, and why didn't they make an N64 player?

THe second zelda bonus disk has annoyed me too, i went and payed extra for Wind Waker to get Ocarina of time, and now they are giving it away with Majora's Mask TOO, so now i have to buy games like mario kart that i don't want, just to get it. grrr...

Oh, and why isn't Sands of TIme out yet on GC???!? grrr!!!

G'luck getting a 'Cube, Bob! XBox and PS2 consoles may be good, but do their Soul Caliburs have Link in 'em? Oh no they don't! :p

While Spawn may be the goods for the XBox version of SC, and Halo may be kicking arse, "Joe", Sonic, Samus, Link, Kirby (Yeah, I like "Air Ride." So what?), Maxi, Mega Man (Not that Network Transmission crap! I'm talkin' about the collection of classic Mega Man games coming out!), and Mario bring the music!

Well, I have $93 in the savings account right now, as I tyhpe. I am later going to my local gamestop and selling my:

Unreal Tournament(Original, not gold version or 2k3)
Return to Castle Wolfenstein(Beat it many a times and don't play online)
Mega Man Legends
And maybe some of my old Genesis and Nintendo Games


Hopefully this will put me at around $130-150 dollars. If I have to, I'll even sell my regular Nintendo. Those things go for around $40 :eek: I didn't even buy UT or RtCW. A friend of mine gave them to me when he moved away. I have played them both and have not played them in a good 4 months, and don't even want to.

I don't really like the Xbox because most of the games are already on the other systems. Most of XBOX only games.......well they suck.

XBOX Games do suck excluding ones that are on other systems and KOTOR. But XBOX is capable of so much more but no game company takes advantage of th technology the XBOX has.

Yes but I already said excluding ones that are already on other systems. Geee isn't morrowind and Halo on the PC, wait yup I think it is! YOu need to read my post more carefully. Therefor I stand by my words everything that is exclusive to XBOX Sucks. Now don't get me wrong I love my XBOX more than my crappy ol PS2 but I just want something new. Even though Gamecube doesn't have the power XBOX has it is still descent for a few games. I will probably get board of those then when XBOX 2, PS3, and Gamecbue 2 come out I will get those see ppl its an endless cycle. You see its what they want and I am giving in mostly cause I am board with my systems.

I'm tired of consoles - although I always do get sucked into buying them. I have no heart to sell them to a Game-Trading store either. They don't give you crap for them and there's some nastalgia that goes along with them. Besides. When we are like 90 those Atari 2600's may go for a grand or something. I almost sold mine- but decided that it wasn't worth it. I have a PS2 that I never play. Too many darn games and just not enough time. :(

GameCube and Zelda for $84 with Free Shipped
Tue 25 Nov 2003, 4:30 PM - 0 Comments, Make the First Post! (Last Poster Gutspiller)

KBToys has the GameCube Console for $99 - 15% off coupon code KB111703NL = $84 w/ free shipping.

Much better then waiting out in the cold at Walmart on Black Friday just to save $4.

This system is supposed to include the Zelda game, but it isn't mentioned in the product description. Buyer beware.

Thanks EvilAvatar.com

On that same note, GamespyDaily.com notes the following:
Just to follow-up on a previous story about a Black Friday sale at Wal*Mart on November 28th concerning a GameCube bundle - it's true. According to this week's newspaper insert Wal*Mart is selling a GameCube bundle for $79.44 that features The Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition disc, a disc carrying case, one controller and a black GameCube system. Check your local Wal*Mart for availability. The Black Friday sale will take place from 6:00 AM - 11:00 AM.

Gamecube: The next Dreamcast. Nintendo in a last ditch effort, decided to start making cd games for a change. Little, dinky STUPID CD games. :rolleyes:

Xbox: developed by Microsoft, who needs to put more energy into operating systems, instead of captilizing on a market that was once dominated by Nintendo, Sega, and Sony.

PS2: While it may have more "crappy" games it still has "MORE" games, also plays DVDs, also plays the entire catalouge of old PSONE games, some of which still own alot of the crap that is on the market now. While it may definitely be worth it to hold out for PS3, Sony still comes out smelling like a rose, by developeing consoles that you can get more than a year's worth of use out of.

Everyone knows PC games are the best, but Playstation would be my next preference.

Yes, it is the next Dreamcast. But you know what, for the time being it's the best out there IMHO. Plus, my Dreamcast still has more shelf life then my N64. In fact, I just got done playing Shenmue on it before I got on here. I still play that. But then again, the only reason DC died is because Sega put too much trust into their "G-Roms"(or whatever they were called) and thought they had the pirates beat. Does the word h4X0rz have any meaning at all? I thought so.

So even if it does become the next Dreamcast, I still play that little system all the time.

Odd. Because she doesn't seem to mind that you spend tons of time on the filth filled internet. Just an observation mind you, not a critisism, so's you don't get steamed. Anyways, I REALLY prefer PC gaming, but on occasion (not very often) I fire up my PS2. But the wifey's been talking about wanting a GC. She likes all the cartooney type games. And the more I've thought about the Star Wars titles that are exclusive to that system, the more I think I like the idea of getting one. So anyhow, hope you like it. Congrats.

the old Xbox controller is just retarded.


The new S controller they came out with is well....... just freaking awsome.

Well most of the time she does'nt even know I am online. Like right now. She doesn't care though, and she getrs a report of what sites I have visited. And no, I didn't take it the wrong way. It takes a bit to get under my skin, but more then that :)

EDIT:Sam, just my oppinion, but I think the new S controller is more awkward than the GC controller. The controls just seem real awkward, whilst the X-Box controller just molds to my hands. Just my oppinion :)

Well, the S controller really is the most comfortable controller I have used on any system to date, the Nintendo controller just feels like I'm going to accidentally break it if I squeeze too hard (which goes for other things aswell ;) )

The PS2 controller whould probley be second to the S Controller from XBox.


But PC still pwnz consoles any day of the week :D

:cheers:Today, I arrived at wal-mart at 5:50 AM with a wallet of $100 I walked out being the pround new owner of a Gamecube witha Zelda Promo Disk featuring Selda 1, 2, Ocarina, Majora, a 20 minute playable demo of Wind Waker, a video of Wind Waker, and a look at the zelda franchise, and a case that holds twelve games :D
I cut it close though, I got there later then expected, and they were handing out 100 tickets for 100 cubes. 1 ticket(and cube)per family. I got the 99th ticket :D
Talk about close.

The only thing I have trouble with is the fact that the c-stick is on the same half as most of the buttons.

Oh, and Groovy, you could get a Gamecube with a kick-ass DVD player for the same cost as a playstation. :p

(And if I remember correctly, those small dics hold 1.2 gigabytes of data)

Yeah thats one reason I want Game Cube. Also here is what I have my systems for.

1.XBOX - For its fast and reliable hardware. Like small PC
2. PS2 - Best Games
3. Gamecube gets so many cool exclusive games unlike Xbox's exclusive games. And its so small!
