Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Nothing classic at the moment... I'm making a lot of progress
in those two games, and I just have the fever! :-)

Halo 2

And when Geist is released later this month, I'll be all up on that until I
beat it. Then back to Halo 2.

Different machines for different purposes. I prefer Gamecube because of
Nintendo's 1st and 2nd party titles. I bought an XB for Halo, that's
basically all it's used for.

The Xbox is the best emulation box, ever. Plays everything from Mame up
until the 16bit era pretty much perfectly. Even plays N64 games with
-decent- results. Hell, i got a USB adaptor for mine and can even play
C=64 games with a keyboard. Throw in XBMC and you can play all your
video files.. its amazing. I can't imagine anyone who likes older games
not getting one. I have one disc with like 14,000 games on it!

You don't even have to chip it. If you don't care about XBOX Live just
soft mod it. Costs about $20 (1 old game, 1 memory card) and takes 5
minutes.

I have a much faster PC with S-vid output for that.

Got an Xbox for fathers day along with Revenge of the Sith, so that's
getting most of my attention lately. (Granted, Sith is hardly a stellar
title, but I'm such a Star Wars nut that I'd probably play with a pile
of manure if it was marketed as "Bantha Poo-Doo.")

On other platforms -
GBA: Advance Wars 2
Gamecube: Rebel Strike (more Bantha Poo-Doo!)

BTW, my Dreamcast doesn't want to read any discs (disc spins, I can
hear the laser head move, but nothing loads) 95% of the time. Any
advice? Or anyone know where I can get a used DC on the cheap?

Eh, you probably have to recalibrate your laser on your GD-rom unit.
It's easy to do, and there are instructions on the net to do it. All
you need is a philips head and a precision flat tip screwdriver to do
it if I remember correctly.

Here in StL, I have a source where I can get a used DC for under $20.
Cheaper than trying to get the CD drive fixed. The place is called the
game trader. Not online, but e-mail me and I can help get connected up.
