I have finally gotten to playing Rogue Squadron II on GC thanks to that half off day at Game stop, and it is as awesome as I hoped it would be.

I have to check out Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, I have heard about it through the years, but never picked it up. I know its on the PC and Gamecube, what else was it on, and what is the best version to get?

^It was also on Xbox, and PC version is best to get, since it was made for it. If you're comparing Xbox v. GameCube, tho, probably the former is better.

If they were to make it a top 10, I'd add Shadows of the Empire, Pod Racer, and the other Trilogy Arcade game.

Hmm, I need to play many of these (I've had KOTOR 1 and 2 sitting around untouched for years...). Overall it's a good list, though I prefer the Starfighter games to the Rogue Squadron games, and Dark Forces to Jedi Outcast. I also quite enjoy the 32X Star Wars Arcade game.

This reminds me - I had sort of taken some time away from having a specific collecting goal, but It might be a fun goal next year to collect every Star Wars game made for a major system (the best version of each game, ideally). Are there any that are exceptionally hard to acquire?

Battlefront 1 > Battlefront 2

Also, no Episode 1 racer or Republic Commando?

Republic commando is the RTS, right?

Republic Commando is a FPS; Empire at War is the RTS.

Second this, the Rogue Squadron series on the N64 and Gamecube are very good. There are also the Vector Arcade games in the Gamecube versions. 8)

Gamecube - Rebel Strike Preview Disc
Gamestop carries the Zelda Demos, but could never find this one. Finally bought a copy from Smashed Brother back in May. Just a demo of the full version. Not sure of rarity, but as a preorder bonus disc it is not as well known compared to the Zelda preorder bonus discs. I threw in a safety guide to put something in the book holder, curious if there were an official booklet for the demo. The demo has instant access to a perfect emulated version of the orginal Star Wars Arcade. I know its also on the full version, but this demo disc also includes some extra exclusive pics and videos.

Does the demo come with a manual or flyer?

PC Star Wars Behind the Magic
Thanks a lot, you put the bug in me, I installed these a long time ago in a far away galaxy. The CDs have extra footage that is not on any DVD release. Yes the footage is grainy, but unique. Just ordered, Amazon has it cheap!
