I want one of these so much. I cannot get one and the profiteers are out charging double what the system is selling for.

Actually it is £150 and if I was going to spend that much on a console I would buy a ps4. Game a video game selling shop having it for £180. It is supposed to sell for £70.

I think I will have to get a raspberry PI and play these games on emulation.

The only game I'm not enjoying so far is Kirby's Dream Course. Maybe it was cooler back then when physics engines weren't as common, but I can't find the appeal of it in this day and age.

It's definitely the weirdest inclusion on the system, but I think it's a clever Kirby-themed take on golf and is much more difficult and cerebral than Kirby games usually are. If you haven't tried choosing the "Demo Game" option on the title screen, which is actually a series of tutorials, I recommend you do so, because otherwise the abilities can be quite confusing.

Is there a Classic Controller to GameCube controller adapter out there?

Amid tons of GameCube to Wii controller adapters, I found evidence of one from when the Wii was new that worked the opposite way (Remember that you couldn't use a GameCube controller as a Classic Controller, meaning you needed both on the Wii to get the most out of the system). But it's long out of print and very little is out there about it like reviews that discuss how laggy it may be. In fact it seems so obscure that I'm not even certain the manufacturer ever released it.

Is there one out there that's actually purchasable in 2017, that allows a Wii Classic Controller or equivalent to be plugged into a GameCube system? I'd like to be able to use controllers for my NES Classic, SNES Classic, and other accessories like my Wii Hori arcade stick with my Game Boy Player.

Supposedly, the SNES Classic has been hacked to allow the addition of more ROMs
.Well, that took 2 weeks.
