The Terminator - Color Regrade
Time

I didn’t have time to upload those this morning but I will get to it this afternoon. My grade in the shot of Arnold looking at the phone is actually really similar to the screenshot you posted here.

For the sunglasses, do you mean the shot I already have in the gallery I posted, or the puppet with glasses?

You’re saying the WiiU has perfect controller design?

He was referring the ability to link a GC controller to the Wii U.

The reason you can do that in a Wii is because the Wii also has GameCube parts in it, so when it emulates a GameCube, it’s hardware emulation. Same with the WiiU. Wii Mode on the WiiU is hardware emulation of the Wii, meaning the GameCube controller does not function on the WiiU like it does for the Wii because the WiiU wasn’t designed specifically for that function. Plus, when you plug a GameCube controller in for use on the WiiU, you plug it into a Wii Remote, not the console. It’s not really equivalent.

I want Nintendo to make a direct stylistic sequel to the GameCube called the Game³. Like an upgraded GameCube with stronger hardware and modern capabilities, but still retaining the sleek design sensibility and perfect controller design.

I think they called it the Wii U.

No. The Wii U is nothing like the GameCube.

It sold terribly; had a great lineup of games, although not many due to limited third party support; had the ability to use a second screen as a controller, introducing unique gameplay that was ultimately underutilized; had neat cover art; and had the best controller for Smash Bros ever.

It’s a direct sequel to the Wii, hence the use of that name. Only it’s really a beast of its own even then.

Since you added this bit in later, the Wii is basically a GameCube with motion controls. There is really little difference hardware-wise. If the GameCube sold as well as the Wii did, they’d have definitely capitalized on the name.

I just said I wanted a new GameCube, that looks like a GameCube, and has GameCube styled controllers, and functions like the GameCube but with upgraded hardware and capabilities. Regardless of the real life context around them releasing such a thing.

Yeah, and I said the Wii U fits that bill. It doesn’t really look like a GameCube, but if I may quote your original post:

Like an upgraded GameCube with stronger hardware and modern capabilities, but still retaining the sleek design sensibility and perfect controller design.

And I don’t see how the Wii U isn’t that.

As you say, it doesn’t look the part, and of course, it doesn’t have my ingenious name idea. 😛

Also, was the Wii U backwards compatible like the early Wiis? Because if not that’s definitely out of the picture.

I mean, sure, the internal hardware is similar, but that wasn’t my point at all. I just said I wanted a new GameCube, that looks like a GameCube, and has GameCube styled controllers, and functions like the GameCube but with upgraded hardware and capabilities. Regardless of the real life context around them releasing such a thing. And I just really like the name Game³.

I forgot to mention, I have a Sega Genesis hooked up too, and that’s all you really ever need.

+100%

I have a Japanese Mega Drive (model 1 first run) hooked up to a 32 inch CRT via HDRetrovision’s YPbPr miracle products. Outside of getting it region modded some time and possibly getting a nice Sony Trinitron to replace the flat glass screen I’ve got, that blast processing is definitely all I really ever need.

I also have a GameCube that stopped functioning, that’s currently waiting at a friend’s house for a different friend to take a crack at fixing it (since he fixed his own previously).

The rest of my consoles are actually my brother’s. Original XBOX, XBOX 360, PS3, PS4, Wii, extremely broken GameCube. I think that’s it.

Brown is my favorite color, but it definitely isn’t my favorite verb.

calling people idiots for believing what they believe

That’s pretty close to what you’re doing with the duck thing though. From a certain point of view. 😉

You saying that believing in God is equivalent to believing in the space duck just sounds like mocking.

The only connection I can find (after a single cursory Google search) between V and Speed Racer is that V was directed by the assistant director of the Matrix so… what’s your point? Am I missing something?

V was written by the Wutchumucallitskies.

With Lost in Space it’s best to just watch the original pilot as if it was a TV movie (essentially what a pilot is anyway). No Dr. Smith or robot, just a pretty serious sci-fi story from the 60s with nice characters.

Speaking of Dune again, does anybody here know where I could find the Third Stage fanedit? The faneditinfo links are down (it’s all Frinks doing! 😉) and nobody responded in that thread.

I might somewhere, but it’s more likely that I have the Alternative Edition Redux. I’ll try to remember to check when I get home from work tonight, but you might wanna shoot me a PM to remind me.

Cool, thanks. I actually grabbed the Alternative Redux but decided not to watch it because I’m such a purist with a stick up my bum. Enemy PMs coming your way.
