  7. A list of exactly what you get here: http://www.planetgamecube.com/news.cfm?action=item&id=5148 The £20 off hardware, and £5-10 off selected software is pretty reasonable IMO. EDIT - for those who can't be bothered to click...
  8. Where did you order it from? No, let me guess...DVDBO?? Honestly, swap DVDBO for videogamesplus.com - the prices are pretty much the same, but the service is 100,000x better.
  9. Or in other words, play pirate GBA games. And that is acceptable is it?
  10. I can't believe people are moaning about the cover. It's great. I bet you're the same people that moan to the advertising standards folks about Pot Noodle campaigns.... Best issue for quite a while IMO. Good work men. PS Loved the inside front/back cover work. Genius. PPS Please say that Nagoshi will be back, he was a true highlight in every issue.
  11. I find it really useful for games that you play in long stints - the GC controller doesn't cramp my hands as much as a GBA would over several hours. Very good for Wario Ware as well

    Pikmin 2

    Looks like it uses the e-reader..........
  13. Yay! <runs off to videogamesplus.com>
  14. No, it'll have been done whichever way worked to get it done on time. Things like deadlines have a habit of taking over things like optimisation. The RAM issue is also a white elephant - S3 texture compression would certainly play a part, multiple texture passes would play a part, the faster disk access for streaming would play a part, the new Nintendo libraries which have really improved memory issues would play a huge part etc etc etc MGS2 could 100% deffo be done on the GC - and it probably wouldn't have the framerate problems the XBox build suffers from either
  15. Even with the winkey, that's still complete bollocks. But then, something tells me you know that already....
  16. The stuff in Zelda is pretty good fun. Tingle rocks.
  17. But as Sprite said, what about System Link peeps - they could make use of the content but are 'denied' access to it.
  18. What if the code for that Island was not in the original GC game but was, in fact, developed later and contained within the Metroid cart? Would that be OK?
  19. So then..... RTCW having extra levels that can't be accessed unless you have broadband & Live!, but doesn't actually use broadband/Live! in any way other than to unlock the bugger, is shite. Do we agree?
  20. So I'm interested - is the use of the link cable in Animal Crossing "bad"? It does not require any further software to be purchased.......just offers an extra to GBA owners.
  21. You got some of your wishes Jack.... $19.99 is blindingly cheap for F-Zero and Metroid. I might just pick Wario World up at $29.99 as well!
  22. But they are already on the disc, and by buying a Live!/broadband subscription you unlock them. How is that different in any way to unlocking things with the GC->GBA connection? As I said, I really think they go hand in hand - you can't say one is OK but not the other IMO.
