Online video game rental

Postby dannyolbb » Sat Aug 06, 2005 2:11 pm

What's the name of the website that operates like a netflix for video games? I'm stuck in a backwater for the next 10 months and have decided to take up games.

Also, I have that square Nintendo system given to me by a friend who didn't like it. Are there any games that I should look out for?

Thanks in advance.

It's OK if you do a lot of console gaming. About $12-$18 a month, I think, depending on which subscription you get.

Lol. :-b Sorry, can't help but laugh. It's nothing personal, I swear, it must be the way that's written or something. :-b

That's a Gamecube you have. ;-D

Metroid, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Super Mario. Any of that in the title, and it should at least be an interesting game. ;-D

Don't know about the online rental thing though, sorry.

You have a Gamecube. Good solid system if you like Nintendo. Get these games, NOW.

1. Metroid Prime
2. Metroid Prime Echoes
3. Resident Evil 4
4. Legend of Zelda: TWW (don't be a little girl and cry about the toon-shaded graphics, its still a great game with a lot of style.)
5. Super Smash Bros Melee: very deep fighting game, you can blow a lot of hours with this. And if you have anybody to play with, it'll be a blast
6. When it comes out, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Also, I believe Gamefly is a video game rental service. Not sure on any specifics though.

I bought a gamecube (wish i hadnt) and own all those games except RE 4, and thats a very good list. Sadly, aside from those there aren't tons of games worth buying...BUT, you can get Ocarina of Time on gamecube format, so i suggest that, seeing how it is the best game i have ever played... :-D ;-D

True, but I'd much rather have the original on N64, before they censored it. They took out the wicked awesome Fire Temple music with the arabic chants in the background, and took the star and crescents off the blocks, switches, and mirror shield because some Muslim groups whined. They also took all the blood out of the game in the versions past 1.0 (gold cartridge and original gray cartridge.) I find Gamecube to be a very good console for its first party exclusives, but not much else. They just don't have too many other exclusives. On the plus side, it far outpowers the outdated PS2.
