Gamecube pulled out and playing!
« on: January 18, 2019, 06:36:11 AM »
A co-worker just purchased his first gamecube, came with a lot of games. Experiencing someone else's excitement and enthusiasm  has motivated me to pull out my cube and games. I have even purchased a couple games and am looking for more. I just realized that I only have around forty games for the system. That is not acceptable. I usually have a few games out for play on the Wii but with that console dead, got to get out the real thing. Love the "wavebird."

Viewtiful Joe is getting a revival.

Viewtiful Joe!   Wow... that's a game I haven't played in a long time.  I have fond memories there... it's probably been at least 10 years since I've played it.  I Really want to break out my Gamecube.  I don't understand the backlash the Gamecube received... it had such good games.  It's pretty funny... when the Wii was launched with backwards compatibility... you couldn't find Gamecube games.  They were all in demand AND gone and everyone was saying "How did I miss this game?"

Viewtiful joe... if I am correct, @Strubes was a big fan of this game.

I didn't fully comprehend the hype this game was getting.

It was a fun game but it tarnished quickly and while I haven't tried it out lately, I can't imagine it aging well either.

well... to be fair, I haven't played it in forever... so I'm not sure how well it aged.   I really need to break out my Gamecube though.  That's one game I'd like to explore again.

I find the game still awesome to play. It is so well put together. In my book it has aged well. An Amazing beat'em up.
