Gamecube isn't easily hacked as an old Wii or even the Wii U in Wii mode. Besides with Nintendont you can do crazy stuff, like wireless controllers and some tweaking on video options.

Hey, you can buy it as back up, but maybe not necessary, i mean it does have gameboy player, over the VBA emulator so you can play real carts if you want, unless you can convert the save data on them to emulators then, sure why not?

Personally, i don't think is necessary, but you know, always good to keep a back up just in case. Like going to friends house, or in case your wii goes dead, so you know, not bad. :D

Unless you have some action replay to load homebrew, is kinda just a game cube not much to do outside of what is supposed to.

Well if you just REALLY want that authentic experience sure get a GC. But wii would be you're better option. Different controller support. Cheat support. Nintendon't can do some good stuff.

My opinion? No.

Wii allows you to buy cheap component cables and allows you to play NTSC Gamecube games in beautiful 480p goodness. Gamecube on the other hand requires a really expensive Gamecube component cable to let you play in 480p.

If you want to get a GBPlayer and play legit GB/C/A carts on a TV, yes, absolutely get it. Otherwise, not unless you just want it for collection purposes or for some reason need one for a 2nd TV so someone can play GC games at the same time someone else is using the Wii.

ah yeah, this what turn me off from buying a gamecube. apparently there is no third party component cable. :(

still, I love collecting consoles (I have an unused dreamcast and super nintendo), and these days I am so obsessed to own all nintendo consoles! since gamecube can also become a gameboy advance, I still think it's cool.

thank for your insights.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot

    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    lmao

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
