What are you doing RIGHT NOW?!?!
Right now I'm just chillin' after handing out a ton of Halloween candy.

It's funny because my neighbor across the street did a haunted house in his garage that left some kids so terrified that they'll probably need years of psychotherapy to get over the ordeal. :lol:

The big question: Wavebirds... where did they fly to?
I stocked up while they were still available. ^_^

I also got this snappy GameCube carrying case.

Battling depression
Stik: If you can't afford professional help then join a church group. They're free and usually allow you to fellowship with others who may be sharing similar experiences.

Don't allow yourself to become isolated and if you ever have any more ideas of harming yourself give me a call. I've sent you my home number via PM and I'm completely sincere when I say that I'm always available to lend a nonjudgmental sympathetic ear.

You're going make it though this and you're gonna come out even stronger at the other end. :yeah:

I'LL BE BACK (soon)

Basically it was a benign tumour (which makes it sound a LOT worse than it actually was) that means cartilage grows on the inside of the skull.

Its apparently seen more in women but i'm in the textbook age category for it, over 40 is the norm and i'm 44

But its gone and it won't come back, they don't work that way apparently, or at least thats what they told me!
Yes it sounds absolutely terrifying. :huh:

Thankfully you won't suffer any long-term ill effects and you can continue to live a healthy productive life.

What games are you playing?
I'm still on a fighting game frenzy so now I'm playing Virtua Fighter 4 on the PlayStation 2. This game is simply amazing with some of the best graphics that the PS2 has to offer and gameplay as deep the land of the rising sun. Surprisingly, for all its depth, VF4 is as easy to pick up and play as any Tekken game from that era so hopefully I can get my friend Steven to try it next time he comes over expecting to crush me at SSB. ;)

I need your help to know what I should know about these. Are any of them really worth trying (close to the originals) or should I just make it simple and go with Nintendo controllers only?
My advice is to always stick with official Nintendo products.

Also, if you're going to play Mario Kart Wii and/or Super Smash Bros. Brawl then I recommend picking up the Classic Controller Pro which works very well with those two games.

Here's video showing the unreleased GameCube title Donkey Kong Racing.

It's worth sourcing up a GC or backwards compatible Wii for these three titles alone. :yeah:

Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is the thinking man's Mario Kart; F-Zero GX is quite possibly the best racing game of all time; and Super Smash Bros. Melee scales brilliantly between casual and competitive play.

Action, I too am just starting to explore my Wii's GameCube functionality. And I want you to know that I took you're advice about F-Zero GX being (1) awesome and (2) on the rise pricewise, and purchased a black label copy yesterday.
Smart move as F-Zero GX is AWESOME! You may never want to go back to Star Wars Episode 1: Racer ever again. :D

What games are you playing?
I realized that I hadn't unlocked all the stages in Super Smash Bros. Melee so now I'm trying to complete all the Target Tests with every character. Young Link's test stage is proving to be insanely hard for me. >:-]

for me, the gamecube is the pinnacle of 128 bit gaming. it offers the best overall experience. of the four 128 bit systems it has the best and most exclusives. it has third party support. better textures than the XBOX. so it didnt sell very good, the mindless mass fell for sony's marketing lies and bought the inferior console in stead (including me, at the time). i feel the PS2 was a serious waste of many years of my life as i can see the true staying power of the cube
While I agree that the GameCube is a great gaming console I don't feel that the PlayStation 2 is inferior. Remember, the PS2 also included audio CD and video DVD support which added immensely to its functionality. On top of that, the PS2 has several titles in its library that feature proper on-line support and some that can be played on-line via tunneling software like X-link.

I play a lot of Super Smash Bros. Melee and F-Zero GX so there's no doubt that I appreciate the little purple lunch box of joy, but I'm not smitten with the system enough to overlook its obvious flaws which kept it from claiming a higher position in the console wars or at the cash register.

Ironically, I'm playing GC games much more than N64 ones as of late. ^_^

Wii discussion
This news makes me sad. ;_;

Wii discontinued in Japan

Although to be quite honest, the newer non-backwards compatible Wii's weren't very desirable anyway. The original units that support GameCube software and peripherals will probably remain valuable if for no other reason than the fact that they're great for Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl tournaments. ^_^

Which Super Smash Bros?
I finally got around to watching the entire documentary and it was absolutely brilliant. So much so that I've posted it on every game related site I could think of. I sincerely hope and pray that this magnificent work of art finds the audience it so richly deserves.

The part about Isai was especially touching to the point that it nearly brought me to tears. Undoubtedly that part of the documentary will find mainstream appeal if people take the time to watch. Isai's vulnerability was captured with sublime genius and was handled so deftly that it never crossed the line of seeming sappy.

All I can say is - BRAVO! :applause:

Which Super Smash Bros?
Steven made short work of me by beating me at Brawl, Melee and the original SSB both in the US and Japanese incarnations. ;_;

He did tell me about this fantastic documentary that every fan of Super Smash Bros. should see which made the whole thing worthwhile, though. :lol:

I'd like to own Justinwebb's Subaru BRZ but in an AWD configuration. That would be the ultimate ride in my extremely humble opinion. :yeah:

Killer Instinct Gold
If you're in to fighting games that reward button mashing then steer clear of Killer Instinct Gold. There are plenty of other fighting games from the 90's that are much more friendly and inviting to casual players. KIG, however, is cut from the Street Fighter II cloth which means that it takes skill and a tactical mind to prevail over a well versed opponent.

Killer Instinct Gold isn't as pretty as Soul Blade or Tekken 3. In fact, it doesn't even look as good as it's arcade twin Killer Instinct 2 but it is a deep and engaging fighting game that any supporter of the Nintendo 64, who grew up playing Street Fighter II, should have in their library. Gold's dark tone and long combos set it apart from any of its peers and the refinements to its fighting engine makes it infinitely more rewarding to master than the original Killer Instinct.

So if you loved Street Fighter II, in any of its various incarnations, on the Super Nintendo and want something familiar for your N64 then Killer Instinct Gold is the logical choice. No - you won't feel like you're on center stage at EVO when playing a competitive match but you may just relive a little bit of that 1990's arcade magic that most people lament is gone forever.

For some strange reason I'm infatuated with AWD cars lately. Right now I'm thinking this GRC spec Ford Fiesta looks tasty.

I'd love to drive this thing flat-out in the mountain roads in the western part of my home State of North Carolina.

You realize you just wrote that on an open forum, right? :)
Yeah but this site is off the beaten path enough that mostly we're just a bunch of close friends. It's not like I posted up the disclosure at Gamefaqs or something. :lol:

The Xbox One Topic
My friend who works at Gamestop told me that he's hearing talk of an early price cut on the Xbox One so he's telling his closest friends who are interested in the console to wait until early 2014 before picking one up. Don't tell too many people about this as I don't want to get my friend in trouble.

New version of the GC style replacement stick released
The competitive Super Smash Bros. community will be ecstatic! :w00t:
