My brother and I would get into salty fist fights after playing melee for too long, so my Mom would snap the disc in half. We went through 6 discs before we could play without getting salty. I have 2 copies still, one is always in the GC and the other is near our wii.

Are prices in store also 75% off?

Yes they are. So are gba games if you find them.

Does anyone know if these come in generic cases or the actual cases and inserts?

Varies, you may even get a paper sleeve. Complete copies with case/manual are probably rare as hell.

Eh, looks like a pass for me then. Would have taken a chance if the games actually came with their respective cases. Thanks for the info.

Don't fret it too much. I can't remember the exact number but I bought some 130 games when this originally started and I think it was 95 didn't work. Took 13 copies of Mario Golf alone before one finally worked.

darn, some $5 gamecubes would have been sweet:applause:guess I'll hit up my thrift shop I suppose, they seem to pop up often enough. I'm mostly buying one just so I can play my copy of Mario Party 6, which for whatever reason is the one game that won't play on my wii:cry:

The closest GS to me that has a refurbished Gamecube is almost 14 miles away. My truck gets 15 miles to the gallon, gas per gallon is at about $3.50, so it would be just about $7.00 worth of gas to go get the thing. My Wii has GameCube compatibility, but this is still a great bargain.

Decisions, decisions...

Ask your local if they can get it transferred? worth a shot.

It's a great bargain. I've already got my Gamecubes through Craigslist.
If you have decent soldering skills, some spare 30awg wire and a switch, you can play Japanese games in no time!

really? $30 for a gamecube seems pretty average to me (or have they gone up recently?).

Well I fit right in then. Although I have a GameCube I'm not biting on any games. My backlog is probably in the hundreds! Talk about OCD!


Hi, I'm Morrodox. (Hi, Morrodox!) And I'm an OCD game-buying addict. I have shelves full of PS1 and PS2 games that I'll probably never get around to playing, but I bought them because they were cheap and they looked interesting. One of my closets has an entire box full of unplayed 360 games, and another for PS3. I've started keeping them in there until I actually play them because having so many unplayed games on my shelves out in the open became embarrassing for me. But I still buy more games when I can get them cheap.

Okay, who's up next?

I already have a Gamecube and a Wii but I'm still looking for another cheap Gamecube so I can use the GC component cables and gameboy player.

20 bucks for a GC w/ first party controller is decent. I honestly see a lot of cubes system only for 5 bucks. but theres a local store around me that sells console only for 10 bucks w/ plenty in stock. I see first party GC controllers at Goodwill ALL the time for ~5 bucks. Add in the wires and youve arrived at around the same price. Having said that, id still look at goodwill lol because it usually comes with extras when you find it. (One of my cubes was 15 bucks at goodwill with Mario Kart and the 1024 Memory Card and the other was complete in box w/ 2 controllers for 15 also at goodwill)

Man, that truck is 21 years old, paid off, cheap on insurance, and running like a Swiss watch. Like hell I'll trade it in. 8-)

Is there still 75% off preowned GC games? For some reason, some of my stores have mario kart restocked

as far as I know, it works online. My stores don't have much of anything, but I might pick up Wave Race and Narnia for $1

I stopped by the local GS to see if they had any left. And they did! In the color I wanted, too! I picked up a Platinum Gamecube (including the cables and a black OEM controller), Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, the Microphone and a 1-year warranty for $28. The warranty was only $2.99. Well worth it, especially on a used system. It was the last Gamecube they had in stock and the last one any GS had within a 20 mile radius of me.

And he even gave me 2 game guides!
