Guess who's birthday it is! No... Still wrong...
So it was the
birthday today. He sent out invites to everybody.
Yeah everybody. You know how many people showed up. Diddly squat.
He cried you know. I hope you're all happy.
Xero wants everyone to remember they failed to come the Gamecube's birthday and therefore get no cake.He would also like to remind you that you sicken him and that the cake is fucking delicious.

It probably doesn't help him much that the Wii is backwards compatible...
I always liked that it has a little handle like a lunch box.
That, and Smash Bros, Metroid Prime, Wind Waker and the Kinnikuman (Ultimate Muscle) game.
And that's about it. RIP, GC. And say Hi to Virtua Boy for me.
Hahaha! Well, I loved the cube, so I would've come if I had known. I loved the awesome controllers, the near indestructibility, and all of the sweet 1st party games on it!
Mr Andy Dixon
I haven't spent much time with the Gamecube, but what time I have spent was pretty swell.
I put fresh flowers on my GC's grave every other year.
My Virtual Boy, however, I took to a taxidermist and had mounted on my wall.
I just bought two Gamecube's last week from Goodwill! It's like I knew his birthday was coming up...or not.
All you need to know is Pikmin.
But the Wii is testament to how awesome the Gamecube is. How many other consoles can make a whole new one just from taping two together?
I think the Gamecube had some of the greatest games I've ever played in my life. To this day: Wind Waker > Twilight Princess and Thousand Year Door > Super Paper Mario.
I would be astounded if there is anyone that can manage to destroy a Gamecube.
@mrandydixon (Name change didn't last long then?)
Short, sweet and without regrets; That's the Gamecube way.
The 'cube will never die as long as we believe! (and the Virtual Boy never happened if we all cease to)
One of my biggest regrets in life was only ever owning one Gamecube. You're living the dream bro.
Yeah, I loves Paper Mario 2. The only bad association I have with it is when I found out that most of the parrners were copies of the originals.
I'm okay with it because they didn't exactly have the largest selection of interest species and there were no direct copy and pastes. I'm probably just letting it off because of nostalgia though.
@Rexwolf: Because I wanted one of each color released (not including the special editions). Now, I have them all.
I still staunchly defend my Gamecube to this day to the myriad haters. In my opinion, the GC had the best ergonomically designed controller of any console EVER. The little xylophone music that played when you booted the system was awesome, and there were some great games. FUCKIN TWIN SNAKES!!!! Resident Evil 4? Come on. Also, I will hold on to my belief that Double Dash is the best iteration of Mario Kart to this day.
I liked the Gamecube. I know Marcus fucking loves Super Smash Bros. My favourite was Rebel Strike (big into Star Wars games at the time). Resident Evil 4.....was another Marcus fav.
What's a Gamecube?

My gamecube once bludgeoned a man to death when he tried to rob me in my apartment. I love my gamecube for that.
Pure love in box form.
@Occams electric toothbrush
The domesticated Gamecube always reverts to it's primal instincts when challenged. It's first instinct upon danger to to beat the living shit out of everything. It's second is to play some Double Dash.
Oh Gamecube...you will be missed.
I love my GC way more than I would profess in public.
Happy birthday, you misunderstood bastard.
My Gamecube was a good friend. I would be ideal to mod him, but he's still just packed away since the Wii moved in.
Just couple of week ago, I dug up my cube, yanked the card, and passed it off to a friend who had just picked up on of those Nintendo hypersquares.
The torch has been passed
ace of knaves
Wind Waker, Melee, RE4,
Thousand Year Door
are four of my favorite games ever. Happ Birthday, Gamecube. I love you.
I love the GameCube. It's a tie for my favorite Nintendo console, along with the SNES. I love the console design. IT"S A BOX!!
I got my GameCube about a year and a half ago, well after it's life. I wanted one when it launched, but I got a PS2 instead, so of course I quickly forgot about the Cube. But one day I just started thinking about it, so I looked up it's game library, looked up prices on eBay, and grabbed one of those suckers. I already have about 60-70 games for it. I love it along with my PS2.
I wish they did more GC/Wii simultaneous releases like they did with
Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy
. I'm pretty sure if they did, the GameCube would still be going strong today like the PS2 is!
Dude, the Gamecube has one of the best libraries ever. I don't get much use out of the actual console anymore now that I have my Wii, but the controller and games are some of my absolute favourites.
I have much love for the cube.
and for a minute I thought this was going to be about my nephews, but screw them happy birthday gamecube! I'f it wasn't for you I don't know what I would have done during physics class in high school(best/worst)teacher ever lol.
Hey, I still have the GameCube in my closet, organized neatly with the other consoles!...I say hi to it now and then. :)
You know what, the GameCube was pretty cool anyway. I remember playing Rogue Agent, Animal Crossing, and Metroid Prime a couple of months after it came out at Blorp's place.
I don't have a lot of NGC games in my collection, but the selection is pretty neat. I like the GameCube.
Also, GBA addon is the tits.
Also, also, I still need to acquire Skies of Arcadia: Legends for it.
So yeah, we still love you GameCube! Happy Birthday!
It's good to know that people still appreciate the 'cube. I thought I was thye only one that cared =]
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMIT!!...oh, GameCube too?? HB GC.
I actually just brought my GameCube out of a box the other day. Hooked it up and everything though I seemed to have lost the power adapter somewhere >_>
Man, I skipped that console. Wish I didn't. I still want some of that Skies of Arcadia.
I did bring nachos, Mr. Gamecube.
I want some cake.
