Title: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: HiddenShadow on March 08, 2006, 09:12:15 pm
Nintendo DS Vs. Gamecube and it is happening right here.It seems that the DS is poking the Gamecube but the Gamecube starts to play Shadow the Hedgehog as the DS is watching in agony.Who do you want to win?Which do you like better?I'd vote but I'm not exactly sure.

Definitely the DS. I don't even play my GameCube anymore. DS has a touch screen, wi-fi, microphone, games like Advance Wars DS... what more could you want?

Yes but the Gamecube has Smash Bros.,more Sonic games then you could count,and Starfox games.It also has a bigger screen.You can also play GBA games on a bigger screen.

So? The Sega Genesis had Sonic games. Better ones than the Gamecube had, IMO. :P

As for the debate at hand... Never tried a DS, so I can't really say anything ;)

You can get Sonic Mega Collection which has all the old Sonic games in one micro disk.

Let's see the strong and weak points of the two combatants.
Strong
DS: Touch Screen, Wi-fi, Pictochat, ACWW, great for puzzles like Tetris DS, Clear gameplay
GC:SSBM,Gameboy player, AC, great Pokemon games, clear gameplay.

Weak
DS:High price, too many puzzle games for some people, not a lot of fighting games
GC: high but not as high as DS price has more uncool games

I really dunno...
The DS can break REALLY  :o easliy
Gamecube lasts longer.
I like both.
I really want the DS LITE. 8)
Title: Re: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: DynaShock on June 15, 2006, 03:18:15 pm
I want a DS Lite too. I'd say tie.'ears why:

-DS-
Pros: Great Variety of Games, Touch Screen,etc.
Cons: N64 Graphics.

-GC-
Pros: Good Games, awesome graphics.
Con: Some games were HORRIBLE. [Think Frogger's Adventure or whatever it's called.]
Title: Re: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: Izwzyzx on June 15, 2006, 05:44:08 pm
I don't see how the DS breaks easly.

Anyway, I got a Lite the day it came out. It pwnz.
Title: Re: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on July 03, 2006, 02:54:03 pm
BOTH!
GC: SSBM and ShTH (Shadow the Hedgehog)

DS: Sonic Rush and Shonun Jump Fighters (In Japan only so far)

Two things:

Shadow the Hedgehog sucks.  Was Sega drunk (http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=140) or somthing?!?

And I really don't have an opinion on which is better.

I'll go with the GameCube, mainly because I don't even play my DS. However, they both lack good GBA compatibility, and both have some alright games. The one Sonic game the DS does have is far better than Heroes, Shadow, or Riders. I'd say the same thing about Mario, but there hasn't been a new game in that series for a while. And none of DS ones really count, as they're remakes.

Besides, Shadow does suck. Nuff said.

.................................................(stands there pondering for many days and nights)..............................
................................................gaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh, its too hard......................................................................................................................................i suppose DS is a better SYSTEM cause it has a new touch screen feature, it also has some pretty good pokemon games, but gamecube has really good games too like super smash bros melee and pokemon XD and the legend of zelda: twilight princess. and the feeling of the controller and using lots of fingers is good, but.................................................................................okay, some things about DS are better then on gamecube, and some things on gamecube are better than on DS:

more new technology: DS
better controls: Gamecube
better games: BOTH ARE EQUALLY FREAKN AWESWOME!!!!!!!!
DS is portable Gamecube has big screen on my TV
when it comes down to it, DS is 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001

Gamecube. More gams, analog stick, more powerful, cool controller.

DS : portable, decent battery, TWO SCREENS (it's awesome to have information such as mini-maps that don't clobber the play screen), touchscreen (which offers a refreshing amount of new control schemes, or at least did when it was launched). Graphics are good, too (I'm not bothered by the "meh" screen resolution)

I have that game! Also the Gamecube is much better then the DS. I'm leaving out 3DS cause that's better then the DS cause it has better graphic alround. The  DS has crappy graphics on most of the games. There are very few good graphic games on the DS. Versus The Gamecube has a lot more quality games with better graphics and Yes it can play GBA, GBC, and GB if I remember correctly. ×Been playing to much Minecraft lately× It also has more namebrand games that lots of people know of. GAMECUBE WINS!!!
Title: Re: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: Pokedude on May 28, 2018, 07:37:09 pm
Oh sorry BTW DS has lost some of it' leverage because it doesn't have internet anymore. Also they wear out easier then Gamecube.
Title: Re: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: Zowayix on May 29, 2018, 09:53:49 pm
I never did post any actual thing in this topic, did I?

Looking back, the DS Lite is probably my favourite console of all time. I love everything about it. Except that mine has a broken touchscreen (works, but I can only touch the very right of the screen, no matter where I actually touch it) (I think it might have been a factory reject or something given that I got it really cheap from China?). But like, the design to me is just perfect. And I'll fondly remember the DS in general, because it happened around the same time of my life where I got a part-time job and all of a sudden I could just buy games myself any time I wanted instead of just getting them for Christmas. So that's why DS games are currently the biggest part of my collection nowadays (also because I can get them cheap in real life stores still).

The GameCube will also hold a special place in my heart, though, just... not as much. I mean, it's cool. It's just not _as_ cool. Kinda. I actually don't even like the controller that much. It had a cool hardware design with how compact it was and the little handle and s**t I guess, but I dunno.

I always wondered why they included the handle. Did anyone actually use the handle to transport their GameCube?

Post by: ISSOtm on May 30, 2018, 09:51:16 am
That part of the Switch presentation was awesome (not quoted from memory because faulty memories): "We brought a little bit from every Nintendo console. (...) With the GameCube, we wanted to bring in portability, with its handle."

Nobody bought that
Period
xD


Also, regarding how compact it is, I say Wii, because it does both GC *and* Wii, and takes less space.
(Oh and also, f**k the Wii 2. I want muh GameCube controllers, god dammit!)

GameCube is great too, I have great memories
of Metroid Prime and Melee

In theory: Yes, actually. You were supposed to take it from one room of your home to another, or at least Nintendo thought people would do that.

I don't see why nobody would do that. Everyone has one TV screen per room in their house, right?

Well maybe in UK/Europe because of the thing...

Hmm. Maybe that's why home computers were more popular than game consoles there in the 80s.

The thing where you can only have one TV in the UK, or maybe it was like... you had to pay extra if you have more than one TV and you need a license from the government or something? And maybe that was a thing in Europe too.

I swear that was a thing, right? I'm not just misremembering something?

OI YOU CHEEKY POOFTAH WHERE'S YOUR MULTIPLE TV LOICENCE?

TV licences are real things (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_licensing_in_the_United_Kingdom) but I've never heard about Britbongs only being allowed one per household. But with how draconic it's becoming over there that'll probably become a thing in time.

Also I prefer the Gamecube over DS. Namely because the Gamecube has Smash Bros. Melee and The Simpsons Hit & Run.

Never needed to transport it but it was the first game system I ever played on because my uncle had one and played it with me a lot. I got a DS as my first ever handheld (not system because we had gotten a Wii recently) for christmas at the age of ... I think 7? But still the reason the Handguns can win graphics is one thing.


BIGGER SCREEN.

To be fair I can imagine some company these days marketing their console as being similar to handguns, because "...it shoots you in the face! BANG!... or it's really powerful!... or something!"

I guess that'd be more a Microsoft thing to do than Nintendo.

*slaps past self *Shut up past me! Anyways, looking back at this topic and seeing how I actually own both consoles, I personally like the Gamecube more. Really though, it's not worth comparing a hand held to a console and this topic is old (I now realize that oops) but I wanted to actually post my opinion this time instead of lashing out like I did when I was 16.

Title: Re: Nintindo DS Vs. Gamecube
Post by: Pokedude on June 01, 2019, 08:43:09 am
Sorry but I'm stickin' to my handguns on this one. I just have a special place in my heart for the Gamecube. Although I don't dislike the DSi. Sadly I have the Super Mario 25th Anniversary Edition of the DSi but since I've had it since I was 7 it's somewhat busted up mainly the card reader doesn't work at all.😢
