Metroid Prime is a good game as are the Rogue Squadron games.

Metroid Prime is a good game as are the Rogue Squadron games.

I had them both years ago when I had a Gamecube for a few months.  Tried both of those games and couldn't get used to the lack of certain buttons on the controller (i.e. I've been using an Xbox controller for far too many years!) :)

Will see what I can find tomorrow in the bargain bins - pity no-one chips the buggers any more as it'd be worth keeping if I could get that done :)

You're welcome to have a go at doing it yourself .. me & soldering irons are incompatible :)

However, this SD Media Launcher seems to be another option judging by various online forums.  Wasn't around when I last had a Gamecube.

Very tempted by this SD Media Launcher.  All the emulators I can find that are on the Gamecube have been downloaded so it's just a case of how quick I can click the 'Buy Now' button on Datel's UK site :)



Edit: Bugger .. clicked 'buy now' by accident :)

I've been playing Super Mario World on the SNES. My son says it's better than New Super Mario Bros. on the DS.

Of course it is, nearly *all* games are better on the older systems . . . Donkey Kong on the Color Genie anyone? A superb version me thinks! :)

I guess, not really 'retro' yet (??) but having a ball with a few mates playing Unreal Tournament 99. So funny when pimped with new models and own recorded sound packs.

Nothing retro at the moment as I'm completing Metal Gear Solid 4 on the PS3 but it is making me want to go back to the original on the PS1

Some odd japanese game on the 3DO where you have to rescue school girls from perverts by beating them at Mahjong, and I can't play mayjong :o
