Any good FPS for Gamecube?

Since Zeta and Logan have beaten me to the punch re TimeSplitters and Metroid Prime, another good FPS available for GameCube is James Bond 007: NightFire (whose developer, Eurocom, would later go on to develop the GoldenEye remake for the Wii).

Afterburner Climax being delisted

<div>Sad news, and as others above have already pointed out, yet another of the perils of digital-only games. Never got around to picking this up before; guess now I have the perfect excuse.</div><div>[QUOTE=Leo]For those that haven't already, I'd recommend grabbing Daytona USA HD if you want it. Th...

Your Least Favorite Genre?

Fighting games due to my lack of skill at them; Super Smash Bros. is about the only one with controls simple enough for me to grasp.

2014/11/16: GameCube: Pool Paradise, Geist, Mega Man X Collection

[QUOTE=scotland17]Also, when you put the icon for 'may contain sharks' is this snarky 'pool sharks?' instead of the tooth and fin kind?[/QUOTE]<br />Oddly enough, no; the tournament matches in this game are played for money, and as you have no money to start off with, the first thing you d...

Crown Jewel of your collection?

[QUOTE=Rev][QUOTE=Calysma]My most treasured game in my collection would undoubtedly be <em>Castlevania: Symphony of the Night</em> for the PS1. This title regularly goes for about $100 on eBay, so when I saw it on sale at a second-hand shop a few years ago for only $19.95, I couldn't hand my money o...

Crown Jewel of your collection?

My most cherished console would probably be an original Game Boy with an LED backlight mod, which I bought off eBay for about AUD$40–50 a few months back. I'd wanted an original Game Boy for a fair while (for curiosity's sake, if nothing else) but had never been able to justify the purchase until I ...

References to previous games in a series/related games

<ul><li>In the original Uncharted game (Drake's Fortune), the wetsuits worn by Nathan and Elena at the start of the game carry the fictional brand name "Ottsel" on their fronts, a reference to Daxter from Naughty Dog's previous game series, Jak & Daxter.</li></ul><ul><li>Game Freak placed refere...
