I had my first Gamecube
experience yesterday. A friend of mine received his import Gamecube (or GCN to his mates) yesterday with Super Monkey Ball
, and all I can say right now is "IWANTONE IWANTONE IWANTONE IWANTONE IWANTONE IWANTONE!"
Not for Super Monkey Ball
Although it is a way-fun, drug-f*cked, Japanese, revved-up version of Marble Madness
, and I'll probably get it anyway, but the GCN just oozes fun! It's tiny
. The discs are positively miniscule
. The controllers... oh the controlers...
Probably one of the best things about the console is that the controlers simply melt into your hand. All buttons are easily accessible and the L + R analogue triggers feel the best of any I've used. The whole deal has this ... "squish"
thang going on. It's very hard to put into words. And the rumble of the pad is also pretty spot on
, giving the perfect level of feedback.
Anyhoo, they'll be released in Australia next year so I'll probably get one then after I get rid of my N64
