    Congrats, you just made the idiot list. For crimes against off-topicness. And shouting without cause.

    Threads with absolutely no off-topic elements tend to get dull, and obtain very few replies. Feel TEH FUN.

    Gamecube you're an idiot and gamecube you must adjust to gamecube this forum, it will not gamecube adjust to you.

    Do you know what a threadkiller gamecube actually is, because you just used the word incorrectly.

    First off, I totally LOVE the Gamecube, and am glad I bought one. I do, however, have a few complaints about things. I know this isn't the place to bash (even though I'm not gonna bash), but different points of view are needed in a 'discussion'. All of this is MHO of course.

    I'm posting this just to get things off my chest. I HATE the GC controller. The controller could be perfect. The size is perfect and fits perfectly in my hands. The buttons are all placed conveniently. I also like that they are all different shapes and sizes, so they are instantly distinguishable without looking down. But I HATE the "L" and "R" buttons. They suck. It's like pressing in on worn out springs. They are supposed to be 'pressure sensitive' but I think otherwise. It's either pressing in a tiny bit, with nothing happening...or pressing in all the way. And then when you do that, you hear this stupid crunching noise...it get's annoying if you are playing a game like Luigi's Mansion, where the "R" button is the primary button. the "L" and "R" buttons, in my opinion, make the controller seem flimsy and cheap.

    One thing that hasn't been a problem so far for the GC, is the memory capacity issue as far as disks go. It was mentioned when the GC/X-box first came out, that because of the GC's smaller disks, that their games wouldn't be as good b/c of less memory capacity. However, we all see that ps2 ports onto the gamecube come through entirely intact. So I guess it's a non-issue for the time being.

    You also gotta love the relative size of the GC. I bet they sell a ton of those portable screen things. Why would you need a gameboy advance if you can just drag a portable GC around???

    BTW, don't buy Luigi's Mansion if you don't have to. It's incredibly fun, but beatable in about 3-4 hours if you are any type of competent gamer.

    Maybe it's just your controller, cause the two I have definately respond to the pressure sensitivity. An excellent example of this is Super Monkey Ball's Bowling mini-game, where for your shot you use the pressure sensitivity to tell how much spin to put on your ball, and many times you only need the slightest amount of spin on it, and I have no problem doing so with the buttons. Same goes with rogue squadron, although rogue squadron usually needs full-speed, or for you to "click" the button (it shouldn't crung when you do that though...).

    If there's one thing to complain about, it's that the z-button really isn't easy to use in conjunction with R-button unless you keep a finger free for it.

    I agree the L,R buttons are fine. My gripe is the z button placement and the tiny start button. Both of which for the games I have get little use other than pausing. So it's no big deal. Just feel lucky we didn't get the X-box controler. I tried a X-box at my cousin's for the first time at X-mas and I could barly get my hands around the thing.

    Yeah the Z Button is ridiculus, it was really cool on the N64, like a trigger type thing but now it's just some button in the top corner put there for who knows what.

    Anyway JC, i guess it's just that time of month again for Mace_Windo. ;)

    The biggest problem I have with the controller is that it's not convenient and easy to move your finger in their natural position in the cup shaped L&R buttons to hit the Z button above the R button. To do it I have to remove my fingers from where they can easily reach the other buttons. Thankfully the Z button has yet to figure prominently in a game so It has not been crucial to use the Z in action situations quickly.

    I have Luigi's Mansion and have yet to beat it WindexedStormtrooper does that make me an incompetent gamer? Of course it's been on the back burner since I got RL, SSBM, and Pikmin, so that's the reason why I haven't beaten it yet.

    Yeah Gamecube's sparse library is starting to concern me, but I did see the new commercial for Sonic Adventure 2 on GC. Haven't played Sonic since my friend had a Gamegear way back when. I'm interested to see what this incarnation of him is about.
