Is Phantasy Star Online fully playable in offline single-player then? I've heard it's good but wasn't sure if you needed to play it online to get the most out of it.

@Dogorilla From what I remember it is fully playable offline.

In the year of 198X, a super gamer named NESlover85 was created...

@Ninfan Yeah I can imagine, that's why I wasn't sure if it was worth getting. I'm glad to hear it can be played offline though, I'll probably pick it up at some point.

Beat Sunshine last month. Wow, I actually think it was the hardest 3D Mario game overall. The only 3D Mario I haven't played yet is Odyssey. The sand bird level, man...

I really enjoyed the setting. Some think the levels are too samey but I think did a great job of imagining stuff that would fit the game's theme, like a water park.

In comparison with other "themed" games like, say, Kirby Planet Robobot, there's less moments with a completely different theme. In Robobot, the main feature is the mecha you pilot (there's also a more techno soundtrack and some "cyber" levels), which is really fun but not every single level has you piloting them.
Sunshine has those secret levels that are dettached from the normal stages (and also really hard).

The controls work great, I think FLUDD adds some fun to the platforming. Visually, the water textures actually look pretty good for a 2002 game.

What can I say, I had a fun but also (sometimes) frustating time with this one hahah.

@Ninfan Yes, I do. What do you want to know about it? Mind you, it's been a LONG time since I've played it, so I might have to do some investigating depending on what it is that you want to know.

@ThanosReXXX great thanks. I remember the cheap copy having a orange colour and the dear copy having a red cover. can't seem to see the two different ones anywhere..I looked on amazon but can't make anything like what might tell me a red or orange one.

@Ninfan I've honestly never heard of that before. So I had to look it up for you.

This is the version that I've got, which is the PAL version:
Untitled
This is the American/NTSC version:
Untitled
And there's also a Player's Choice edition of it:
Untitled

I think I've also found the orange cover you mentioned, but that's actually the German version of the game, easily recognizable by the diamond shaped age indicator on the front:
Untitled

So, not really worth searching for, I'd say. The right version of the game is obviously the PAL version, so the exact same that I have. Unless of course, you've got a modded/region free GameCube.

By the way, information and cover art about practically any Nintendo (or PlayStation) game can be found here:
https://www.gametdb.com/
Which is also where I got all the above covers from.

Just select the category/console on the left, then type the name of the game in the search window, and you'll probably get what you're looking for, the next time you're wondering about various covers...

I got this a few years ago on the cube but really struggled to get into it, which is a pity as I’d heard such good things about it. I guess I’ve just got no sense of rhythm 😁

@ThanosReXXX Both Pink/Red and Orange/Yellow covers were available in the UK (I have the yellow one myself)...I always just thought they were different variants with no different otherwise (including price).

@Gamecuber How do you fare on a dance floor?

@Buizel Yeah, strangely enough, I noticed that the German cover also has English text on it, which is actually quite rare, because the German versions of games more often than not only show text in German.
I guess this was then also one of the rare examples of a game that featured English text (and apparently also audio) in Germany as well.

But it IS the German version nonetheless, otherwise it wouldn't have the USK label on it, which is the German version of the age classification system.

There is a demo disc for Viewtiful Joe. You're not thinking of that are you @Ninfan?

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

I'm not sure if it was a demo disk. Maybe it was . I don't wana get that one if it is that one. Cause it's not very good, the good one was about 200 euro I think. Is there a way to tell the difference between them

Man, Pikmin 2 was such a great game.
One of the coolest feautures was reading about the creatures and object descriptions on the Piklopedia while listening to that relaxing background music after completing a cave...

@Gamecuber Ah, gotcha. Forget I ever mentioned it. Just don't make a spectacle of yourself at parties and weddings, then...

@Vinny It sure was. And it actually still is. I think that all of the Pikmin games actually hold up pretty well. Here's hoping that fourth game is still coming, somewhere in the not too distant future.

@Ninfan No, but you might possibly be able to on the Dolphin emulator on PC, but you'll have to look that up, to see if that's actually correct.

But having said that, it's specifically meant to be a single player experience, and the only multiplayer part is local couch multiplayer, which is also the most fun, in my opinion, instead of competing online against some unknown a*holes who don't play fair...
