RIP Gamecube memories


The wii comes out, I eventually buy one and ditch my gamecube. I can play me games on me wii anyway, right?

The only gamecube games I had been playing were zelda titles, worked fine. Today, I was in the mood to play some Resident Evil : Remake. "Your saves are corrupted." Pull out the memory card (1019), put it back in, still corrupted. Wait, don't tell me .....

I take out my whole gamecube collection, try them one by one. No luck. The only saves I can keep and copy before formatting are Zelda Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and one save from Tales of Symphonia. The rest, RIP. let's give a moment of silence to the following losses :

- Resident Evil 0, 1, 2, 3, CV, 4.
- Zelda Collector's edition
- Smash Bros Melee
- FF Crystal Chronicles
- Paper Mario : Thousand Year Door.
- Pokemon : Gale of Darkness.
- Metroid Prime 1 and 2.

Hundreds of hours down the drain. Thank you Wii + GC memory card 1019. Now I look back at my GC collection and I feel a little empty inside. I thought I'd be more pissed than that. The truth is, I always finish my games. One way or another, I'll always start at the beginning. I lost all new game + stuff though.

Old third party memory card has RISEN FROM THE GRAVE.

About Nic128one of us since 8:54 AM on 02.27.2009

Hi all, introductry post. (Side blog edition)

I'm Nic128, 25 years old, gamer since 1991. Started with a SNES and worked my way through the generations. I got a NES after my SNES though, well, whatever.

I discovered this community a few years ago. I then realized, damn, there are civilized people that love and talk about video games. Awesome.

Here's what I currently own (Systems : History of purchases) :
- Gamecube
- PS2
- DS Lite
- PSP 2000
- Wii
- PS3
- Snes
- N64
- 3DS

Yes, I bought a Snes and N64 after my PS3. You know, nostalgia.

Games I love/loved the most :
1. Zelda : Ocarina of Time
2. Zelda : Twilight Princess
3. Tales of Symphonia
4. Golden Sun (1 and 2)
5. Zelda : Wind Waker
6. God of war
7. Tales of Vesperia
8. Resident Evil 3
9. Zelda : Majora's Mask
10. Banjo-Kazooie

I suck at anything FPS, RTS, MMO. Unless I'm playing with friends, I don't play competitive games. I get angry when I lose against better players.

Besides games, I love Fullmetal Alchemist, Table tennis...

And that's it.
