@Knuckles-Fajita Hm... don't entirely agree. Chicken can taste really great, even when only mildly seasoned with the simplest of herbs/spices, so if you feel like it HAS to be smothered in whatever, then I can't help but think that you never had a decent grilled chicken or chicken fillet if you think that.

And I think it's also pretty safe to say that literally EVERY dish/kind of meat only tastes good, when it's prepared right. (personal likes/tastes and/or aversions to certain types of foods aside)

Either way, even if you stick to that opinion, then that stir fry marinated chicken, vegetable and rice dish
I mentioned earlier, might still be something that agrees with you.

@GyroZeppeli Yeah, okay, on a sandwich, yes. Or in a salad. But not with wings, legs, whole chicken or fillet.
I was of course partially kidding, but those actually are the exceptions for me. I use all kinds of sauces/condiments with those specific types of chicken (dishes), but never just mayo.

@Matthew010 Go for the official memory card 251. The 59 is too small, and the 1024 has been known for being less reliable, especially on Wii. Third party cards are a few bucks cheaper but less reliable, I'd avoid those too.

@Anti-Matter I, like many others, tend to avoid third party memory cards at all costs. They aren't always terrible, but I've had enough issues with various ones in the past to stay away.

@ReaderRagfihs
I can tell the third party 2043 block is working fine even they have been used for long time. 🤓
The issue i heard a lot was the 1019 block, so i avoid the 1019, bought the 2043 instead.
My save data of Harvest Moon Magical Melody on 2043 block was still fine, and i knew that game was really sensitive with third party memory card.

@Matthew010 You're welcome. If you have any other questions, such as concerning game recommendations, feel free to tag me.

I've browsed through the pages on that site I mentioned to you, and as a couple of quick recommendations,
I'd say that far as I'm concerned, these are certainly worth looking into:
Burnout, Wreckless: the Yakuza Missions, Sonic Mega Collection, Fight Night Round 2, Dead To Rights, 18 Wheeler – American Pro Trucker, Peter Jackson’s King Kong, Rocky, Resident Evil, the Prince of Persia Games,
the Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell games, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005.

If you like stuff like GTA, then the True Crime games are also okay. You probably know Call of Duty, and most of those are also good, provided you like the genre, in which case, the James Bond games are also good.

Personally, I also like the Lord of the Rings games (there's just one mentioned on that website, but there's actually 4 in total, from which 3 based on the movies), and if you like soccer/football, and you are a purist, then don't go for the old Fifa games, but check out International Superstar Soccer 2 instead.

Some titles well worth finding, and more or less must haves for the GameCube, are Mario Kart Double Dash,
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, 1080 Avalanche, Wave Race Blue Storm, F-Zero GX, Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, Eternal Darkness, any Resident Evil game (but especially Resident Evil 4), The Metroid Prime games, Luigi's Mansion, the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron games and the two Pikmin games. I could name quite a few more, and I'm sure the other members will also have some of their own favorites on the system, but I'll stop here, before it becomes an even larger text wall than it already is...

By the way: I'd go for the 16MB memory card: it's more future proof, in case you decide to buy more GameCube games. The smaller size one could suffice, but for the difference in price, better safe than sorry, no?
EDIT: Belay that order. I firmly agree with @ReaderRagfihs in that you should go for an official memory card.

Oh, and here's another couple of good sources for GameCube games (and hardware/peripherals):

Ooh, are we talking Gamecube games? Outside of the obvious ones like Melee and Mario Kart, my favorites are F Zero GX, Paper Mario, Super Monkey Ball, and Soul Calibur 2.

I'd also look into Super Monkey Ball 2, Spongebob Battle for Bikini Bottom, the SSX games, and Mario Golf. Phantasy Star Online is also pretty fun, but you'll need to hack your Wii if you want to play it in online mode. Offline mode is still fun, but it's even better online.

The 251 block memory card should be enough to keep you going for a while. Just for reference, the average Gamecube game takes up about 10 blocks, so that's roughly 25 games on one card. Though it varies, the smallest game I have is Metroid Prime which is 1 block, and the largest I have is Animal Crossing which is 59 blocks.

Bought a MadCatz multipage memcard for my N64 in ‘97; it went corrupt and lost the whole device’s contents. Never bought third party cards since.

Also, now I want a Cajun-seasoned chicken slice with some baked kale, tomato, and mayo on a sammich.

I need to plant some kale again this year.

Decided against the Wii U for now. I can just wait a few more months, as I already have some stuff that's keeping me busy. And then I'll probably think of a reason not to get one by then. Such is life.

We got a few inches of snow and it's -17 degrees. Then on Wednesday it's supposed to get up to almost 40. It's whiplash I tell ya.

This looks about right.

@ThanosReXXX: What, family-friendly? I suppose that's more of a thing on the main site, but I know we can get a little ornery here on the forums....

I don't mind giving you the recipe if you're truly interested. It's not the healthiest by any means since there's some sugar involved, but humans in general seem drawn to sweet-tasting things.

This ironically fits my thoughts about the Switch right now....Though my longing for one grows almost daily.

Yep, similar temps here on Wednesday. That -17 makes today's high of 14 degrees seem almost like a heat wave in comparison.

@ReaderRagfihs That’s nuts. It was 73 here yesterday, but it’s 28 now. And really windy. At least it’s been sunny, though.

We had 1-2 inches of snow here yesterday, which in and of itself isn't bad. What made it hazardous for a little while was that the winds from the same system created white-out conditions here. No major damage in the area that I know of, but there are a lot of smaller limbs down.

Yeah I think we’re gettin all the wind but that’s it. We had a rough rainstorm last night for a couple hours, about an inch of rain in 30 minutes.

@JackEatsSparrows That sounds like my kinda sandwich. Might even want to try slapping that recipe onto a freshly baked French baguette, or one of those triangle-shaped specialty breads, or making it into a Panini...

@Blitzenexx Yeah, I wasn't kidding where that part was concerned. And who doesn't love a good meat ball?
Well, vegetarians don't, but I'm definitely not one of those. I'm more of a mindful Burgundian. Taking care of myself, well for the most part, and also caring about good foods and vegetables, and the care that goes into getting those on my plate.

Either way, by all means, throw that recipe onto the forum. I already gave a few of my recipes, and I'm pretty sure others wouldn't mind having a go at it either.

Hey, like @Anti-Matter said, eclipse is tonight. Here’s the deets for my North America fellows;

If you want to watch it live, NASA says that the edge of the Moon will begin to enter the Earth’s penumbra (the outer section of the shadow) at 6:36 p.m. PT / 9:39 p.m. ET. Over the course of the next 57 minutes, the Moon will dim as it travels through the penumbra. Then, at 7:33 p.m. PT / 10:33 p.m. ET, the Moon will reach the umbra, at which point it will become significantly darker. By 8:41 p.m. PT / 11:41 p.m. ET, the Moon will be all the way inside the umbra, and that’s when the eclipse truly begins. The best view will occur at 9:12 p.m. PT / 12:12 a.m. ET
