My First Nintendo

I missed out on the Golden Age of Nintendo -- I was in college at that point and had no money to spend on such things, and by the time I did have money, I sunk it all into PC games.

Mmm, the golden age of PC games... ^.^

Anyway, this past weekend sirfox recommended some of the later Rogue Squadron games as being hella fun ... but those were made for the Gamecube and nothing else. Le sigh!

So today, on a lunchtime whim, I stopped in at Gamestop and asked, "Do you have any used Gamecubes?"

Their reply of "one, for $30, and we'll have to cannibalize some of our displays" suited me fine. I told them to make it so, and selected Rebel Strike (Rogue Squadron III) and Lego Star Wars (Prequel Trilogy), plus an extra (and Wii-compatible for future upgrades) controller. Grand total just over $80, so not too shabby. :) Plus, the Wii can play Gamecube games, so if it some point we do get a Wii, we'll already have some games we can play on it.

Hope I get a chance to give it a test-fly this weekend. :) I could use some blow-it-up fun.

You've got an Edge card, right?

Seconded, the Edge card helps me cut an extra 10% off my "previously loved" purchases.

plus 20% off game guides when you purchase them with a new game!

I'll need to remember that next month when I go and help Nikolai start looking for that special someone.
