    I got one today. I still have no games (though Metroid Prime 1 and 2 are in the mail) and no memory card. I'm just finding out if I can do anything with this beyond the obvious.

    Yeah, did that for a while, even reset a few times for the start up sounds. :P

    Glitch up Animal Crossing by Action Replay?

    Curiously... American gamecubes can often be modified to boot under the Japanese operating system. Main menu, game disc region, and memory card format.
    That mode is needed for some JPN games to play glitch-free. Because modchips or Freeloader break only region lock, not toggle system language.

    Eh, I have a PAL Cube anyway. But I do have a Freeloader and 15 games (10 PAL, 5 NTSC-UC). No Action Replay though, and no Animal Crossing.

    I had no problems with them. Though I still haven't beaten Meta Ridley in Prime. So I haven't seen what 2 and 3 have to offer.

    Hard to believe that the Cube was my first (working) Nintendo console, and a month later, I also picked up a cheap Wii (I saw Dead Space: Extraction cheap and had to get it). Though I've had most versions of their handhelds since 95, and I was given a broken NES (with Duckhunt but no Zapper :P).

    It'd be funny to see Duckhunt PAL in action. But trying to lug a 50hz light gun compatible CRT over here is insane.

    I still use a CRT television. I like my one though because it has enough inputs for 5 sets of composite cables (PS2, XBox, Gamecube, Wii and 360), and even a row for component, though I don't know how to make it display (I've gotten a black screen only with that one).

    Little reason to upgrade for now. Most of my games are all made for SD display anyway.

    Yeah don't worry about that now. It's a game-specific matter.

    English setting leads to:
    memory card trouble for Radirgy, Mr Driller, Donkey Konga, etc.
    corrupt text for Sonic Mega Collection, Zoids Vs III, etc.

    Earlier I compared Sonic Mega Collection NTSC-J.
    ENG mode
    JPN mode

    (and no, your eyes aren't tricking you. those are scart leads on US shores.)

    I just stare at the screen and play the game. My eyes still work.

    Besides, I don't really play Call of Duty. I do own a couple of the 360 games that I got off a friend, but don't really care for the series. I play PS2 most of the time, or handhelds.

    Well, Oblivion was okay, but I only really liked it once I had bought a house, and then started to find caves to loot. Screw the rest of the game. I'll likely pick up Skyrim when it gets dirt cheap for the same reason.

    Throwing milk at the bitches!
    Never could find much to do in TES games, other then looting which gets boring when you think about how much the game is based on it.
