My New 2DS XL arrived!

All the buttons are in weird places but it's comfortable to hold at least. Runs a little hot too.

The GameCube in my opinion at least was the last great Nintendo console, Heck if you want to get technical it is the last true video game system before they all become more media players then anything else.

It had a good amount of third party games as well before Nintendo scared off third parties by introducing gimmicks to their systems. I still stand by it that the GameCube version of Soul Calibur II ran and looked better then it's PS2 and Xbox counterparts.

I was bummed that my GameCube died but I do have an original Wii that I can play GameCube games on but it's still not the same for one thing I hate having to access the GC mode with the Wiimote just takes too long. I have bought several GameCubes from thrift stores, garage sales, even retro game shops but they always end up not reading the discs which makes me think GameCubes must have had poor lasers or something.

@Tasuki
Weird. Never had any disc read issues on a GC. Still have my second (Platinum) GC that I bought on release and that's still fine.

Only disc issue I ever had for that gen was my first fat PS2 - it stopped reading some DVDs properly after a couple of years.

I agree on your point about Soul Caliber 2 - only problem was the GC controller and that Link was crap compared to Spawn!

@KALofKRYPTON Yeah I had a platinum one too bought it when Soul Calibur II came out but it just stopped reading discs about 10 years ago. By that time I had my Wii so I just sold it to a local retro shop for parts. Still as I said its just easier to play GC on it then the Wii.

As for Spawn in Soul Calibur, I only played him a few times cause my friend had it on Xbox since he owned that instead of a Cube. When we were over at his house we would play that when he came over to mine we would play the GC version. From what I remember he had like a totally cheap attack with his cape that could be spammed over and over. Of course even on the GC version I rarely used Link, mostly played as Talim.

@Th3solution Nah could never get used to the arcade stick. Probably didn't give it enough time. I'm fine using the dual shocks with MKX and Injustice.

@WanderingBullet I don't think I would ever pay full price for a fighter, as I don't play it online it feels like I'm only getting half the game.

I was thinking of getting the extra stuff for Injustice 2 but I've not played it enough to warrant a purchase. Plus I'm not hugely into the DC stuff so feel it would be wasted a bit on me.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@Tasuki The biggest issue I found with Spawn were his ranged attacks when levitating. Kilik was usually a good counter.

@Tasuki GameCube's are usually known for their high quality build and longevity. Mine's still working perfectly fine. You must've had incredibly bad luck I think!

@mookysam I dunno, check your nearby sushi restaurant, you may never know

I think the GC, black, is my favourite console design of all time. I just think it looks nice.

@Rudy_Manchego i have both the Black and the Purple one and honestly i prefer the Purple one but that could also be because every damn electrical appliance when that came out was black so it made a nice change (still are in fact)

Tasuki

@KALofKRYPTON Yeah it was something like that. As I said though I never played him much. Although he was better then Heihachi.

@Octane Could be, although to be fair the others I bought as I said we're from thrift stores, flea markets and garage sales so who knows what previous owners did to them.

@Octane The overall build is known for that, but there's thousands cases of people not able to play their GameCube anymore, due to its laser. It's the weak point of the console. Had to replace mine because of it too.

Also: sorry everyone, I changed my display picture. I really love the Aoi pic, so I'll probably change back to that at some point. But Ni No Kuni's character design is unmatched really.

@Kidfried It’s a very cute avatar. Yeah, it takes some getting used to when people change their avatar pic but I like to change mine up too sometimes to reflect either the game I’m currently playing or my current mood.

@Kidfried No need to apologise (he says on his fifth avatar inside of a year). It's pretty cute!

@Kidfried @RogerRoger Just as I've gotten used to everyone's avatars you start changing it around! This is of no help! Just kidding, your new avatars look great.

@Tjuz It's okay, you'll always be a Krogan to me.

Regarding Kingdom Hearts The Story So Far, does anyone know if all the games are in the disc(s)?

Also, does Tetris Effect have any multiplayer feature?
