@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.

@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)

it may be multiplatform now but Final Fantasy & PlayStation will always go hand in hand

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?

So I'm starting to realise that I'm finally getting to the point in my life where completing games doesn't matter anymore for me. After having graduated earlier this year, I'm now searching for jobs and trying to change my lifestyle, which means less time for video games. However I'm still interested in playing a lot of games. It just means that now I'll either have to prioritise certain games or just play each game less than before.

This might not necessarily be a bad thing. I spoke out a couple of months ago in a thread (I don't recall which specific topic) that I'm always striving to finish the story mode of each game that I play. But I do wish that I could be that type of gamer who plays a game as long as he/she wants until he/she gets bored of it and moves on. I think this might finally be that time. For example, I've been recently playing AC: Origins but I got fed up with the game after 20 hours and now I'm playing Yakuza Kiwami 2. And I'm thinking about moving on to another game soon as well.

This would be amazing since I've longed for this to happen to me and I believe that's the quintessential way to play video games. Why force yourself to do meaningless tasks for some trinkets or whatever, when you should just play a game as long as you feel like it and then move on.

If I can completely drop my previous mentality, then I believe I've finally reached the gaming version of nirvana, lol.

@KratosMD In growing older, actually the opposite happened to me. I just stopped caring about having to play too many different games, and as a result I became less impatient with other games. (I still play a lot of games, though!)

But, I think I'm pretty alone in this.
