Stupid rip-off merchants over here...

Gamecube IS worth buying for there are many good games much better than on PS2.

Special exclusives too.

I fully agree with that. As much as everyone mocks the graphics on the new zelda game, they secretly know that it will be the bestest thing ever. Denial.

"Whats with all this cell shading hatred anyway? I think it looks nice."

Me too. I think it looks lovely. But then I read comics and can appreciate different artistic styles.

Your average Joe Muppet off the street doesn't want kiddie cartoon graphics, they want realism, sleaze and blood by the bucketfull. Look at how the GTA franchise sells.

Idiots the lot of 'em.

The Zelda games are superb, and I only have a Gameboy colour to play on (At the moment, oooh look at the GB advance SP... nice)

Cell-shading can look bloody lovely if done right, as in Jet Set Radio - still the benchmark for the technique...

I'm not sure that GTA would be the best franchise to be picking on as an example of how people can be graphics whores.  From what I've played it's actually a blinking good (if morally repugnant) game.  

It might be better to point and laugh at every "me too" first person shooter or racing game that adds nothing new to tired overstuffed genres (Halo being a notable exception by all accounts).
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

If you can find a store that has one, I think the Argos offer on the Gamecube has been changed to Gamecube plus memory card plus ANY game for ?78.99.

To whoever mentioned it i don't like the chances of Perfect Dark appearing on anything else but XBox as Microsoft now own Rareware.
