Twilight Princess on GC. One ive had a few times , always sold it for good money but always regretted it. Not making the same mistake again.
£48.00 from Cex. Yes its expensive but if you consider the credit note I used was paid for by around £10 of purchases it works out pretty well.

Also happens to be minty with unused Points and everything.

May be time to actually play it. Its not getting sold thats for sure.

Its incredible how the Gamecube version costs about £40 more than the Wii version!

I suppose it saves on the wiimote "wiggling/waggling" though.

Mostly because it had a very small release compared to the Wii version. I bought mine for £30 from somebody on here a few years ago and didn't regret it at all. A fantastic game that has to be one of the best on the Gamecube visually.

For the record, I consider the GC game the 'proper' version as development started on the 'cube plus it has normal controls rather than messing about with the Wii remote. I do enjoy motion controls in Wii games when they work but Zelda is fine with the pad and classic controls for me. I've yet to play my Skyward Sword but I'm hoping the M+ controls are a treat.

Beat Down is a great game; one of the PS2's hidden gems in my opinion and I enjoyed it enough to keep it. You'll have to let us know if that Gekido game is any good as the GBA game looks class but I didn't know there was a PS1 game too.

If you fancy selling on Panzer Dragoon Orta and Gunvalkrie Shinobi let me know. Those two are partially why I bought an Xbox again, along with the rest of the Sega games like JSRF. Cool gets.

Speedy PM your address and you can have Gun Valkyrie for free, as it doesn't work on the 360 and I have no way of playing it.. Will try and get it posted tomorrow

Wow, thanks! And yeah, 360 not playing stuff is another reason I got the original Xbox.
