Site Feedback / "Priority" designation for Wishlist items is broken
« on: March 07, 2022, 11:16:03 am »
All of my priority designations for my Wishlist items do not show up anymore and are all set to "none". When I edit the priority, it changes back to "none" upon reloading the site.

Off Topic / Any Board/Tabletop Game Players Out There?
« on: May 06, 2021, 05:14:23 pm »
Hey guys,

I've been playing a lot of the Stardew Valley board game lately with friends, and it's a really neat adaptation of the video game.  Some of the other stuff I've been playing include Dominion, Ticket to Ride, Forbidden Desert/Sky, and I really want to try Wingspan. Would also love to get into Magic one of these days. Never played it but enjoy card games in general so would love to give it a shot with people who would be willing to teach me how to play.

Anyone else on here play board or tabletop game goodness? I've been getting into board games a lot lately and wanted to see if anyone else enjoys this other side of gaming :)

More free stuff for PS4 owners and apparently more to come. Stay at Home part 2 campaign to go through June apparently :)

Download is free until 3/31

Modern Video Games / Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes
« on: July 28, 2020, 11:58:41 am »
Just backed this on Kickstarter. New RPG made by Yoshitaka Murayama (Creator and director of Suikoden I, II and III) and Junko Kawano (Designer of Suikoden I, II & IV) in the style of the Suikoden games. Looks like Octopath Traveler, really love the sprites and 3D environments.

Anybody else heard of this or backed it? About 30 days left on the campaign.

General / Let's Name the Top 100 PS4 Games Together!
« on: June 10, 2020, 10:11:22 am »
With the PS5 announcement coming out tomorrow I thought it would be fun to look back at the PS4 and come up with a list of the best games, like we've done with other consoles. Thinking 100 would be a good number.

I'll start:
 1. God of War

You all have probably seen this already but for those who haven't, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey are free to download from the PSN until May 5th!

Some games I don't have and have been interested in playing so I'll take free stuff!  :)

Modern Video Games / What did you think of the PS5 specs announcement?

Sounds like they're working pretty hard to bring over a lot of PS4 games which would be dope!

Only skimmed through an article about it but it sounds pretty good! :)

Site Feedback / Why can't we delete posts?

This is something I've been wondering for a while. The only forum where we can delete posts is News at this time.

New decade, new thread!

Post your gets  8)

I saw a video about this and found it really interesting. If someone asked you to try out a video games for the first time, which ones would you give them to play and why? What would be the best way to show what gaming has to offer?

I was trying to grab a bunch of different genres and styles with my list, but left off some genres like survival horror.

1. Super Mario Bros
2. Final Fantasy VI
3. Stardew Valley
4. Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
5. Rhythym Heaven
6. The Last of Us
7.  Ico
8. Legend of Zelda Link Between Worlds
9. Skyrim
10. Katamari Damacy

Ooo I get to start this thread this time around :)

I beat Earthbound today so I decided to buy Earthbound Beginnings from the Wii U virtual shop! Was less than 7 dollars after the little money I had left on my account.

Hey everyone,

I wanted to provide a “final” update on my project to make the most complete GameCube list on the internet. I wanted to post a new topic so that people who aren’t regulars on VGC can see what I did and contact me if they have questions or would like to help track down those last few pesky releases, without having to dig through my workload thread or my actual excel sheet. I think at this point I’m going to be stopping my search thus far, as I’m happy with how everything looks at this point. There are still some edits that will be trickling in as I get some more images edited, but otherwise, it's pretty much all done!

The total count was 186 console variations, and by far the hardest thing was  trying to figure out how to name everything. GameCube boxes don’t have a lot of visual differences from release to release. Most of them will have the same item number and barcode and only have different pictures on them from release to release, which makes it tricky to make different names for everything. Thanks to tripredacus for helping me out with that!

There are also several mainboard revisions that change the internal structure of the GameCube, but these changes are not represented on the box in practically any way, unlike Sony’s very meticulous SPCH numbering for the PS2. They may be connected to the way Nintendo changed the back of the console’s box several times over it’s lifespan, I'm not sure. Either way, since no picture of these consoles on ebay has a picture of the GameCube physically taken apart, I would need to buy all of these consoles with all the different boxes by myself to confirm, and it’s not worth that much effort to be honest.  :o

How I named things
  • I kept from including colors in the VGC title as they are usually not a part of the actual box title, but they are in the standard releases to help separate everything. The only consoles that actually have a color explicitly stated are the Japanese/Korean releases, and the Platinum special editions. Everything else will just say it includes a "_____ color Gamecube" in the bundle, if at all. Interestingly, in Japan the standard colors are “Orange” (オレンジ)  “Violet” (バイオレツト) “Silver” (シルバー) and “Black” (ブラック). I believe they are the same in Korea.
  • I only used console models (DOL-001, etc.) if absolutely necessary, in particular to differentiate standard editions. Otherwise, they went in the description field if at all
  • I used TLD codes for releases and bundles with the same names to make it easier to see which console was released to. I also put the country(s) it was released in in the description

Things that are incomplete/still need work
  • I’m sure there are quite a few european releases that I missed, but it’s difficult for me to track down all of them. I think I got almost if not all the heavy hitters though. Feel free to look through my sheet and see if there’s anything you can help out with! They should all have comments that say what's missing exactly
  • In particular, there is one odd GameCube with the Pikmin 2 bundle released in Japan. All I can find is a stock scan on GameBaz, and nothing else. I’ve resorted to asking someone in Japan to help me out, and he couldn’t find anything either. I’m refraining from adding the item to the database until I can get an actual photo of it. It’s still in the excel listing though
  • I have attempted to catalogue the DEV kits as well for the GameCube, but finding professional-looking images for the site has been difficult especially for the ones that didn't come in a box, like the NPDP-GDEV, NPDP-GW/SW, and NPDP-GBOX. In any case, these should be well represented to the best of my abilities.

Site Feedback / Two character minimum in searching
« on: December 26, 2017, 12:27:09 am »
Hey all,

I was trying to search for the word "Persona 3" lately and wasn't able to because each word has to be at least 2 characters long apparently. Searching for "three" obviously wouldn't find the posts I was looking for.

Any way we could get that changed?

Thanks :)

General / VGCollect Secret Santa 2017 Loot Thread!
« on: December 15, 2017, 10:32:12 am »
Alright guys, time to post your gets! A bunch of us opened them up on the podcast last night, so be sure to check it out.

Be warned, santas will be revealed in this thread! Don't read if you want to keep your santa as much of a secret as possible!

Here's mine. I must say, my santa went above and beyond with an amazing gift. It had everything: games I wanted, games that sound really cool and fun... he threw in a couple strategy guides that have been a joy to look through as well. Even added some local chips and chili to top it all off! So awesome  8)

Thank you, flashback2012!
