    Finally, I landed a job and tonight did some shopping including splurging on a GCN. Even better BestBuy has a $30 discount on a system purchase (additional controller, memory card and two games => $30 off). So I got the indigo system with Rogue Leader and THPS3. I played them a bit tonight (as did my roommate) -- fun times ahead [​IMG]

    I'm looking forward to Mario! And also 1080: White Storm!
    I played SMB a bit over Xmas (my brother-in-law got a GCN); though I enjoy puzzle games and really liked the mini-games, the main game of SMB didn't really grab me. But at $30 (and for monkey boxing) I may get it anyway.
    For now, Star Wars goodness will keep me occupied for a while [​IMG]

    Dave,
    My Fiancee and I play Super Monkey Ball -a lot-. And we rarely play the main game. Lots of Monkey Target.

    We also played the heck out of Smash Brothers, but have slowed down now that we've unlocked all of the characters (there are still a few more levels to unlock, but no big hurry).

    I'm holding off on the wavebirds for now, My living room is so small that cords aren't a big deal, and my roommate likes the rumble feature for Rogue Leader.
    I've been so busy and tired the past week I've not had time to properly enjoy playing the new games. I'm looking forward to relaxing this weekend and having some fun [​IMG]

    I really like the Wavebird controller a lot. I can't stand the cords especially short cords...

    Super Monkey Ball is fantastic, but aren't we a mere three weeks from Super Monkey Ball 2? It appears to have triple the mini games (more Monkey Target!!!!) and an expanded single player mode.

    Soul Calibur 2 will be released for the GC, Neil, but it's not available yet.

    In fact, it's coming for all three platforms (though again, it's not available for any of them yet).

    Neil,

    Though I am not a fan of the game many GC owners love Super Smash Bros. Melee. I bought a copy of the game for a young relative of mine a while ago and he adores it. Could be what you are looking for.

    You can also look out for Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance. The game is looking better and better each preview and may actually turn out to be a decent fighting game. Just a suggestion...

    I used to play Soul Calibur 1 on the Dreamcast and I absolutely loved it so I am assuming SC2 on a better concole should really kich some ass.
