I got the original EyeToy game with a camera from Gameplay for ?22.99. Surprising when it costs only ?3 less to have the game on it's own, and ?4 more to have the camera on it's own :|.

Viewtiful Joe - Henshin a go go baby.

Neat story, I spent a while looking for a place that still had it. So we went in to Target, they had some behind the glass case, but it was $30. I was miffed because it recently went to Player's Choice and should be $20, I even saw it somewhere else for $20 (but didn't get it then). Dejected, my friend and I just started moping around checking out their other stuff when we noticed this Player's Choice/Greatest Hits metal rack thing hanging off the side of the endcap. He said, "Dude, Viewtiful Joe, $20" At first I thought he was dicking with me, so I let him know my disdain for being dicked with in not so many words. Then he showed me a copy of the game.
And I said, "Sweet deal, let's get someone to open the case and get me a copy."
Friend, "But they have like 5 right here, we can just grab it and go."
Me, "But they have all that gay Player's Choice crap on it and I don't want that if I can get a non-PC copy."
Friend, "But what if the non-PC's are $30?"
Me, "Dude, the barcodes remain the same, it'll ring up at $20."
So, I call someone over (who, in turn needs to call another person who can actually open the case.) and I get my copy of Viewtiful Joe for $20.
Sweet deal.
Marks my 5th (or 7th if you want to count the two Zelda promo discs) Gamecube game and only the 2nd one not from Nintendo.
Although, my next game will be one of the following:
Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes
Megaman Collection (although I might get the PS2 version)
Ikaruga
Soul Calibur 2
Rogue Squadron 2: Rebel Assault
Rogue Squadron 3: Rebel Strike
Mario Party 5
Luigi's Mansion
Metroid Prime
Paper Mario 2
Mario Sunshine
No signature.

Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes - I liked it a lot, many people hate it for rose-tinted reasons
Megaman Collection (although I might get the PS2 version) - apparently the PS2 is the better version
Ikaruga - you don't have it on DC already? All it adds is an online ranking
Soul Calibur 2 - if its not players choice already in the Us it will be very soon
Rogue Squadron 2: Rebel Assault - bad.
Rogue Squadron 3: Rebel Strike - haven't played, but it dropped to players choice price 1 month after release...
Mario Party 5 - not as good as the N64 ones
Luigi's Mansion - rent this game, do not buy. It takes 6 hours *maximum* to complete it 100%, although it is fun while it lasts it is still just a tech demo
Metroid Prime - I didn't like - too 'lets make them do lots of jumping across platforms in an FPS where depth perspective is difficult to gauge'
Paper Mario 2 - looks cool, hopefully isn't too easy like the first paper amrio was (especially in comparison to MArio RPG)
Mario Sunshine - many people hate it, I really enjoyed it right up until I beat Bowser, then had absolutely no inclination to get all 120 shines

Just bought Katamari Damacy tonight at work. If you haven't heard of it, just know that you need to own it.

Lies.

With the exception of the controls, the Gamecube is stupidity free, unlike the PS2 version that forces you to use analog controls and gives you no choice of turning off the crappy remixed music that's place totally randomly throughout the game when in Navi mode.

Fable: Great game so far
I beat it a few days ago and for the most part it is a great game. Only gripe I had with it was it was too short, but I'm going to start a new game and make my guy evil this time.

Bought Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain and Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior yesterday. I played SF:TOS for about 1 hour, and returned it this morning. What a dissapointment.

GOod thing W40K:FW kicks ass. And it only cost me $5 used. :D

Got:
Tales of Phantasia - pretty game. Characters designs are good, but their personalities bug the HELL out of me. I swear if I play one more RPG where freakin' fifteen year old kids save the world...

Rebel Strike - again, pretty game. But its hard for me. I can't even pass the damn speeder bike TUTORIAL. You're driving at night, and I can't see the ramps that I'm supposed to drive over. Argh... :evil:

Oh yeah. One thing. I'm after Fur Fighters, Metropolitan Street Racer, and Ooga Booga. After I get those three, I'm done collecting for the Dreamcast. I want to finish beating Record of Lodoss War, and MDK2, and Fur Fighters (when I get it, of course). Other than homebrew games and NesterDC, my Dreamcast rarely gets much play anymore. :cry:
