Classic Controller, I'd imagine? Or do those use the same slots? (I have no idea, I never got one. xD)

I had no idea the new Wiis took out GCN controller support. :( That's really depressing.

Yeah I'm not sure about the classic controller. If it won't work either I'll just miss out on XenoBlade. Guess I can watch Let's Plays but tbh I feel there is a difference between playing it yourself and just watching it.

Aww man, not having enough outlets is the worst. D: We've got enough power outlets next to the TV (well, in the power bar XD) to make it work at my place but not enough inputs on the TV. We've got enough HDMI ports but only one component port so whenever we want to play Wii or PS2, we have to switch one for the other. :(

Yeah, I watched part of an LP of XenoBlade and it seemed really boring... but now that it's been released in NA too, everyone says it's really good so I figure it has to be one of those games that's fun to play but not to watch. :P

What is the difference in quality for HDMI and component connection to the tv. I usually play my consoles from component cables but recently starting using HDMI on my new xbox and I really havent noticed a difference, is there one??

Also taking away GCN capability sounds like a way to make people spend more money.

A user on GBAtemp managed to reverse-engineer the Wii to the point that he re-added the GC slots to a newer Wii. Memory card slots and controller ports all work properly, and iirc GC discs also work on it still.

And the Classic Controller plugs into the Wii controller, so you can still use them, although I want to get a GC plug converter so I can use my NES controllers, SNES controllers and N64 controllers on my Virtual Console games.

There shouldn't really be a difference--they're both HD except the HDMI cable carries sound in addition to video through the one cord. Easier to use, I guess. Otherwise, they both carry the same signals. (I believe one can be converted to the other and vice versa.)

Component isn't standard on the older consoles though--I had to buy specific cables to hook up the Wii/PS2 via component over composite. It usually makes them look crisper, though, which is nice. (With some games, though, it makes them look worse, which kinda sucks.)

Yeaaah... I feel like I'd rather just dig out my old Gamecube and use that instead of going into the Wii and adding slots. XD; Or I'd just buy a used Wii.

I feel pretty sad about the fact that I was never able to play the GC games. When the original GC console was released, I was too young to know about video games. So when I got the Wii I tried to find some GC games but I never could, because it seems like all retailers ditched those after the Wii was released.

I really wanted to play LoZ: Wind Waker :(

The regional lockout makes me so mad. My state has no R-18 game rating, so any games that fall under that rating are banned from the state (morons). They catch a lot of copies of that stuff at customs, but the regional lockout means even if you do get your hands on a copy, you can't play it. It's ridiculous. I hate censorship.

Has anyone ever played the Sims series games (i.e The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 3, The Sims Busted Out, The Sims Ubrz.) Then anyone get really addicted to them? I think I might have an issue I can't stop myself from playing.

Skyrim. I've never played the game itself and I doubt I ever will so I have no idea how AMAZINGLY AWESOME it apparently is, but the reason I hate it is because it forced me to endure months of my friends discussing crap like "smithing" with no end lol. Oh God the boredom...

Yes! SO MUCH YES! I got The Sims on PS2 and that got me hooked. Then I got Bustin' Out and I got hooked even further beacuse that's a far superior game. I got The Urbz but I didn't much like that and ended up giving it to one of my friends because he enjoyed the subject matter far more than I did lol. But then I got The Sims 2 on PC for Christmas in 2004 and I have never looked back. I've been addicted to the franchise and I buy every new expansion when it comes out. It's one of those games that should be boring as hell yet is for some reason addictive as anything.

I can't play the PlayStation versions anymore though lol. After I played on PC they were just terrible in comparison.

Easy, Shaq Fu. Was one of my Christmas gifts and I was anxious to play it. Two minutes after that, it was packed again and Shaq never saw the light again...

I had The Sims Bustin out, I had the The Sims 2 and I gave it to my sister. I have The Sims 3 PC and The Urbz Ds. When I'm in class I find myself playing the Urbz while the teacher is going over the work. Then getting out of class and coming home and playing The Sims 3. Think I'm an addicted.
A game I hate is The SpongeBob Movie game only because my sister forces me to help and Ugh this one level make me want to pull my hair out.

If you live in Canada, you can always use Kijiji. With it you have easy access to hundreds of GameCube games locally. I use it all the time and it's awesome! :D

Of all I've played, there hasn't really been much I've hated, so overall I suppose it would have to be Superman 64. The unbearable controls, the outrageous amount of glitches... it really is disgusting.
