Oh yes, I'd completely forgotten about those. Vrally is pretty enjoyable, not really played f1 for any length of time, tbh.

Does anyone know the amount of PAL realeased GC titles? I'd imagine that it'll be less than original Xbox and way less than PS2.

The cube has 450. The other five on retrocollect are 'extras'. ie compilations or special editions that already exist as solus games within the PAL set. :) I believe there are more compilations to be added to the database at some point.

Awesome, thanks.

I'm kind of tinkering with the idea of seeing how many of them I can acquire without throwing my cards at eBay like I did with my PAL Saturn collection, now that the GC is officially retro :D

PS2 really was a software beast, pretty much anymore could go out and get a game on their, it was an excellent console for budget titles really.

Actually, just checked my stats on retrocollect and it says 100% is 447 titles. I've doubtless picked up a couple of extras along the way somewhere....

Now's the time if you want to pick up GC software. It's already a lot more scarce in the wild than it was a couple of years ago and will only get more so. Also expect to pay a higher price for it, even multiformat games are substantially more expensive than on PS2/Xbox.

I noticed! That's why I've decided to not go down the Ebay route.

I'll continue to scour charity shops and boot sales.

Indeed - 1000% increases are not uncommon in the likes of CeX.

Loads of Gamecube games around the Charity shops, Stolen Goods generator and CEX down my way.. Must have picked up about 20 games recently between £1 - £3 at the most.. Got Gamecube Tomb Raider today for £3 not sure how that works with them controls

Tomb Raider Legend is sound on the GC. There's a few irritating qte's but overall a fine game. iirc, there is a game breaking glitch on one of the bosses but fortunately, i never triggered it. Usually commands a decent price, too.
