    Let's hope you're right then [​IMG]

    And I've searched for a site that lists all the GC blocks and the game titles, but didn't found anything after an hour of Googling....
    So if anyone knows this kinda site, please post it!

    I believe that you should be set. I have the black memory card which I think is the 251 blocks or possible the 1000 and something. If is the smaller size I know that you will be able to fit much more than that on it. I had about 20 games at least on mine and about 5 saves of RE4.

    Good. Try not to avoid getting a third party controller. Try official if possible.

    Wow, let's hope you're right.
    And yeah, it's Path of Radiance, sorry.

    @Edgedancer, I've ordered an official controller, thanks for the tip!

    When should it arrive? I live in Belgium, and the package is from Play-Asia.com and they shipped it the 15th of December.

    Play-Asia normally ships in a week and half to Belgium, i think.
    I ordered Brawl there and i think they took like a week and 2 days or something like that.

    Thanks [​IMG]
    Hopefully it's here before Christmas, because I can imagine Christmas doesn't really help the mailing service. It's probably the busiest period in a whole year.

    Good to hear that you ordered an official one. I just still wish that the wavebirds were available to buy.

    I found some links, but they were too expensive IMHO.
    Like 40 euros without shipping.

    I've played a few GC games on my Wii now, and I want to check how much space I still got on my memory card.
    How do I do that?

    EDIT:found it. You should go to the Wii menu and to Wii settings. Then to Channel management (or whatever it's called) and then to Saves.
    Then to GC memory card and you can see the amount of blocks that each game uses up. Fifa 05 career uses a massive 70 blocks for the career modes, that's why I deleted it.
    All the rest is from 1 - 10 blocks.
