Mario Kart / Nintendo thread (yes, who else would make one?)

ok, for anyone even considering getting a Gamecube, theres an insainly good offer at Game (UK):

*Gamecube, (black)
*Controller,
*Mario Kart : DoubleDash,
*Zelda Collectors Edition Bonus Disk,
*Star Wars Bounty huneter,
*Star Wars Clone Wars,

All for £99

The Zelda Collectors Edition disk includes:

~LoZ: Ocarina of Time,
~LoZ: Majoras Mask,
~LoZ: 2, Adventure of Link (NES)
~Legand of Zelda (NES)

~20 minute demo of LoZ: The Wind Waker
~Documentary.

==========
Bareing in mind Ocarina of Time is the best game ever
(evidence:http://www.metacritic.com/games/plat...fzeldaocarina/ )

And each Zelda game is about 30-50 hours of gameplay...thats a hell of a lot of entertainment for your money.
----------

The second reason i created this thread was too encourage people with cubes to get Broadband adapters.
The Warp Pipe Project will soon release a system to play Mario Kart: DD online

I want some people to play against

I was acctualy considering getting a gamecube and wondering what game to get with it.
But , I don't really like race games and I already own all of those Zelda games except for Zelda 2 for the NES. And we don't get Star Wars with it. So I'll probably buy something else.

I'm not a fan of Starwars Games, cos imo they're kinda lame, except the JK series.

As for GCn, I might just buy the Mariokart - Black GCN combo, as well as a memory card. The Zelda thing also appeals to me

I'm gonna get MK: DD tomorrow......, well probably. Don't forget I must choose between that and True Crime, Beyblade, XIII, Star Wars RSIII, 1080 and Billy Hatcher. Also, I still haven't found VJ, so it's on the list as well. Tough choices.........

Beyblade? XD Thats so shit, its like the dumbest thing. True Crime might be good, Star Wars games generally aren't anything to overhype, except Galaxies/JK/Knights of the Old Republic. XIII looks nice, as does Viewtiful Joe.

My 3 must get GCN games are:
1. SMB1/2
2. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.
3. Zelda.

Darek, the Rogue Squadron games are very good! This one should be especially nice as it has the single player game from RS2 as a co-op feature I think.

Yes, and loads of Dog-fight options too!
They really pilled on the extra features in RS3:Rebel Strike.
(New Solo game, whole previous game as co-op, Dog fight, Speeder Race, and "classic" Star Wars games..)

You do get Star wars with it.

Game are giving them FREE.

There not brillent games, but they are 100% free when you buy the system. It was a good enough deal just with the £99 ZeldaCombo+MarioKart....but then they chucked in 2 other games as well.


And trust me, most people who dont like racing games still like mario kart
Its just....well...different

Anyway, what games to get with it:
~Eternal DArkness
~Zelda:Wind Waker
(from an LBA fans perspective)

wel, uhm, yeaah,uhrrr..........I can't help it! I know it is shit, but I just like Beyblade. Come on, I can't help it..........


Luckily, we can get the bonus disc without buying the cube-MK-pack. I'm probably gonna register MK: DD. Too bad I still have to wait 2 months to get it.

Ordered Mario KArt yesterday...
They ever heard of Viewtifull Joe in our shops...
I need a LOT of money, still have to get Viewtifull Joe, Harvest Moon, Billy Hatcher and by the time I've got enough money for those I need Final Fantasy Crystal Cronicles...

Having a Gamecube is tough, real tough

Since I'm not a PS2 hater, and since I own PS2 and GCN (and Dreamcast, but anyways ) my main concerns aren't graphics, its which port fits which controller best.

...which is precisely why Xbox owners boast about slight graphic improvements
=======
Ok, i just tried out Mario Karts multiplayer for the first time.
While intentialy disapointed with the bland multiplayer course's, i have discovered they are far better when your actualy playing.

The Bob-omb mode is possible the best thing ever™
Seriously, its worth the price of the game alone

The sooner people get BB adapters for their cubes the better, i wanna blast some people ;D

Nowadays things changed a lot...

But i will keep my GAME Boy COLOR!

Its fast, just turn it on and play anywhere while you have time!
If I wanted to have super 3d more-than-8bit games, i'd use the computer! I would spend money with more HDs and memory.

Soon there will be another special offer that you just cant miss and more video games better and better.... And you keep buying more and more hardwares.

Dude, thats the POINT of a gamecube/console.

Just like a GBC you just turn it on and play.

No boot-up, no installing,and all games with "GC" on it are garentied to work. (unlike PCs...)
You can have super-3D games and have it just turn on and play instantly.
(yup, Gamecube has tiny loading times)

And consoles are backwards comatble from now on, so you dont need to keep the old hardware.
Upgrade your GBC to a GBA or GBA SP, and it will still play GBC games! (and GB games for that mater).

How much did the GBC cost when it came out?
I think it was £80 no?

For £99 you get a home console, 3 new games and 4 old ones.
Seems much better value to me

Ooo yes I had read about that in NGC a while ago, getting Double Dash!! (yes, must remember hose two exclamation marks!!) for Christmas though and I'll buy a GC adapter at that time too as I'll probably have enough money. I warn any challengers though that I was pretty formidable in Super Mario Kart with, uh.... Princess Toadstool
