    ...and if it is Zelda that takes your fancy there is also a limited edition version of Zelda: Windwaker that comes with an extra disc containing the much applauded Zelda: Ocarina of Time game from the N64.

    I really, really can not wait to play through all the Gamecube games I missed out on, considering I never had one! Mario Sunshine is first on the list :)

    make sure you get NTSC versions and a freeloader. and use the component cables for 480p

    assuming you either have a US / JPN wii, or get the PAL wii compatible freeloader

    it's because the gamecube could output progressive scan at 480p

    only NTSC releases were encoded with such an option - pal one's didn't :( so much so, that later PAL cubes didn't have the digital Av port

    if you have the choice, US games at 480p look way better than their pal counterparts

    the problem is that PAL Wii's don't work with the current freeloader version (freeloader allows the gamecube to run games from other regions - JPN/US) hence the need for a non-PAL Wii (or wait till datel release a pal-compatible freeloader)

    if you're not using component, it doesn't really matter, but NTSC releases were generally cheaper, and released earlier

    hear hear. I second that. Also, I had a shot of the PS2 version and for some reason it just wasn't the same. Probably something to do with the controller - I'm not a big dualshock fan.

    Viewtiful Joe is also great

    Do you NEED a classic controller to play GC/VC games... or can you use the normal remote/nunchuck?

    Game cube controller for game cube games and you'll need a gamecube memory card to save gamecube games also.

    I believe game cube controller can be used for most of the VC games.

    Classic controller doesnt work with Gamecube games, only VC games some Wii games. Here's the linky.

    I'll google it.
