For Wii owners.  Do GameCube wireless controllers work with Wii  i.e. can you plug the transmitter into the slots on the Wii?

Thanks

[QUOTE="princesszelda"]Now that I got my Wii I am looking to pick up some GC games that I overlooked throughout the years. I have my eye on the Pikmingames and Killer 7. Is there anything else out there that would make my collection complete

You could check out the Timesplitters series, Eternal Darkness, Fire Emblem, and Skies of Arcadia Legends.

Yeah, the Fire Emblem series is good, I really liked for sure! :)

I think every mature gamecube owner needs to at least give Killer7 a try. It's a love it or hate it game, but for some you might just think it's the greatest game ever created. Others will say it sucks. The story, music, and overall presentation of the game is just fantastic though. Give it a shot ;)

hmm, if it hasn't been recommended yet I would like to reccomend Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 to the list. It was a good game while it lasted and I think it was great, the only flaw was the fact of the board design in dragon mode.

For anyone who wants to update their GCN collection should buy Luigi's Mansion!

You may think it's dead boring, but it's pretty fun me and my sis got spooked when we played it at night :P!

Oh and the way it's Luigi as the Main Character of this game makes it even more intresting imo.

so, ive been playing a lot of games lately. ive really gotten into games from the last gen, beating what i have and catching up on what i missed. can anyone give me some recommendations? I have:

SSBM, Pikmin, Wind Waker / Master Quest, Super Mario Sunshine, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, RE4, Killer7, and Metroid Prime 1/2

I was thinking pikmin 2, baten kaitos, and beyond good and evil, although im open to any suggestions. now that games should be dirt cheap, im open to all suggestions.

[QUOTE="GMAN32X"]Considering Zelda: TP for the Cube, but I did not play through Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask or Wind Waker. Think I would still enjoy it regardless? Thanks in advance for your input.MAILER_DAEMON
Most likely, but as the game takes place between Majora's Mask and Wind Waker, you may do well to check out Ocarina at least. There are GC versions available at used games stores, but bear in mind that it's a port of an N64 game from 1998, so gameplay may seem a slight dated.

Just wanted to ask if the Gc version of the Ocarina is the Collector's Edition or if there were already ports for N64 games before - I have heard rumors or quotes of games like Paper Mario and others but have been unable ot ifnd them on Gamespot......what kind of N64 games can I find for the Gamecube??

Well, there are two ways to get Ocarina of Time on the Gamecube.

1. You can get Legend of ZeldaOcarina of Time/Master Quest for the Gamecube. This not only includes the original, but it also includes the Ocarina of Tim]e Master Quest, which was a Japan exclusive. Basically it's a more difficult version of the original. This is good if all you want in Ocarina of Time.

2. You can get the Legend ofZelda Collector's Edition for the Gamecube. This includes Ocarina of Time, as well as most ofthe other retro games: Legend of Zelda,Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask. It also includes a demo for Wind Waker. This is the best way to go if you're interested in a bunch of the best Zelda games in the series.

Whichever one you pick, you can find either of them online or, occasionally, at a used gaming store. They're both quite rare, though, so you'll probably have to pay $30-$50 for it. Still, compared to what you'd have to pay for the games individually (especially Master Quest) it's quite cheap.

As for Paper Mario, the only one I know of on the Gamecube is the sequel, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. It's got a couple references to the original, but nothing involving the main plot. So, if you want, you can play the sequel instead. Your call.

You could also get the original on the Wii Virtual Console, if you have it.

Hope that helps.

Hey all

I stupidly sold my Gamecube a few years ago but want to try some of the games I missed and some games I had but did not give time to for the Nintendo Gamecube. I am wandering what your thoughts would be on getting one? (I am not saying I definatly will) as I don't really want to spend £180 on a Wii when I can get a Gamecube with upto 4 games for £30, would this be a good deal?

I want to try Super Smash Brothers, Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart, Resident Evil series, and other titles (such as Zelda, Metroid etc) but I am concerned it will look a bit strange to get a console I sold a few years ago?

Thanks

Just thought I would chime in and say I bought a MicroCon wireless controller from MadKatz for only $19 new and its great. Better than the wavebird IMO. You may be unsure at first because it is smaller than a standard controller, but I think its much better at the smaller scale.

Hello everybody. I have a question. I found Resident Evil 2 and Fire Emblem at my local gamestop yesterday. I haven't played Fire Emblem yet but I've played RE2 on the playstation 1. They are both $30 and I was wondering which game you guys would recommend.

^ Fire Emblem, just because it is pretty rare (a great game, too, I heard)... as for RE2, it is the port of the PS game, so don't expect much...

hi,

just posting my metroid prime review.

also, here is my P.N.03 review, even if you didn't put it on the recommended list.

thanks, and let me know if you put them up on the thread. ;-)
