Ouch, can't believe Gamecube games are valued that high. Had I known you were after this game, i would have sold you my copy of Twin Snakes for £41, cos what are old forum frenemies for eh?!
Yeah, GC games have been expensive for years. I had Twin Snakes once upon a time and paid a high price (£30+) for even then. Got all of my money back come sale time though!

The pricey Gamecube games that baffle me are things like Kirby's Air Ride and Star Fox Assault. I suppose they're somewhat rare, but if you look at their reviews they're not even that good. That's some expensive shelf decorations.
Can't speak for Kirby's Air Ride as it's one of a handful of first-party games I've never owned on the 'cube but Starfox Assault is a decent game. The Landmaster and on-foot sections are pants but the Arwing bits are fantastic and the graphics are lovely. Only reason I sold mine was because I didn't feel like sitting through all the non-Arwing stuff again if I was to replay the game.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Overwatch

Amazon offered me a £10 coupon if I joined prime but only vaild for Prime Day. Barely anything of interest in my price range, so picked up Overwatch for an extra £5.

So far, I'm not too bad at it. Getting 1 Player of the Match chosen for a 3 kill in one of my first few games.
