I still have my Gamecube hooked up to play my library of games along with GBA cartridges. Actually, I also have my Dreamcast and Saturn hooked up, too despite also owning the consoles from this generation haha.


As do I and the gamecube with official component cables looks awesome on my HDTV.

yeah about the tax thing i think they know because i bought 12 games for $20.45 + tax $9.63 = $30.08, and i only had $33.49 on my PUR Card and i recently checked and i have $11.20, so really tax charged was $1.84.
So my purchase was actually $20.45 + $1.84 = $22.28 for 12 games :D

BTW did use 15FREE, PUR 10% off, free shipping. overall great deal.

For anyone that has the means (i.e. the GBA connection cable and a GBA) Pac Man VS is stupid fun. A friend of mine and I would play that and Wario Ware for hours.

I can't agree more with this, I used to play all the time.

I got excited when I saw this thread, thought I might finally get 4 Swords Adventures. Imagine my dissapointment when I find out it's a month old :(

well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

I consider my Gamecube collection "complete" but from what I've seen from all old consoles that were going out the door in GS that their used conditions go from decent to terrible. If someone manages to get something complete AND in good condition (online), I seriously commend you. Checking out the games in store would likely give you a better chance of getting something in decent condition.

Also, if anyone is still buying Gamecube games in 2013, I'd personally suggest checking out pawn shops as most typically have GC titles for $5 (maybe not all good but still) and even asking friends for GC games, I'm sure some would probably give them to you at this point.

Anyway, good luck to you all. 8-)

I was given a copy of pikmin.. didn't even ask to keep it just borrow.
I would totally buy another GC if it was guaranteed purple. I have a platinum w/ plat gbplayer but I'd love an original purple.

When Gameboy stuff went on clearance, all the accessories were 75% off as well. But that was years ago.

They do, but good luck finding them. Its not really THAT great of a price since it comes out to ~3-4 bucks. I regularly see them for that price at thrift shops, flea markets etc.

I am Cheap, therefore I buy Cheap.

It's a great price on Wavebirds, if there's somehow one still around. :lol:

I usually shop at Play-N-Trade for my GameCube content. The selection has dried up a bit in recent years, but they still carry a respectable number of titles, and usually at reasonable prices. They also carry replacement 3rd-party controllers that are near-identical to the originals, and are sold for only about $15. For around $100 I can walk into Play-N-Trade and walk out with a GameCube, four controllers, a memory card, and three or four decent games.

Not that I need to. My GameCube collection is already pretty solid. There are a few titles I would still like to acquire, but they are few and far between.

Easily my rarest game on hand is Japanese Zelda Twilight Princess.
Not being a collector, I don't have anything special.

If anyone cares, Sonic Riders and SSX 3 are in stock. I haven't played SSX 3, but Riders was pretty fun from what I recall.

My order from last night shipped. The tax got adjusted down from $12 to $2, so my order total ended up being $40.xx for the following:

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance - GC
Mario Kart Double Dash - GC
Mario Party 5 - GC
Mario Party 6 - Game Only - GC
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes - GC
Pac-Man World 2 Bundle w/Pac-M - GC
Pac-Man World Rally - GC
Pikmin - Used - GC
Resident Evil - GC
Resident Evil 4 - GC
Resident Evil Zero - GC
Sonic Adventure DX: Director's - GC
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - GC
The Legend of Zelda: Collector's disc - GC

They had 2 copies of of Legend of Zelda Collector's disc and 6 copies of Mario Kart Double Dash at the time I was checking out. I'm kind of wishing I would have been a hoarder just to increase my odds of getting 1 good copy of each. I only bought one of each, so wish me luck. I don't care if they are disc only at this price. As long as they work, I'm happy.

EDIT: I did actually go back and buy extra Mario Kart and Metroid 2. Zelda was sold out of course. If they somehow all show up in good condition, I'll pay it forward to CAGs who want to buy/trade for what I paid.

in for a gamecube....as my gamecube player the wii has been over heating for the past 2 years and am paranoid it will die.

i also know gamecubes are reliable as hell so the odds of a busted one seem pretty low. and 20 dollars is as cheap as they ever are.

of course i am jus lying to myself who knows when ill work on the GC backlog.

thanks OP

Looks like another restock, I got Mario Kart and Luigi's Mansion. I hope they work, I don't really care about them being disc only or not for the price.
