A few pages back, I mentioned buying a hard to find GBA Activision Anthology cart.

I just found out something, the Two Player Mode is on the same screen! A special one of a kind GBA oddity for a link game that makes a perfect transition to the Gamecube GBA Player. :mrgreen:

For two player games, the developer implemented an interesting link cable idea: only one cartridge is needed, but that system will send just a basic program to a second GBA system in the chain that only transmits the button presses to the first system. Player two must view the action on the GBA with the cartridge. It can get a little awkward, and it was probably a technical compromise since networking GBAs would have probably been a tough task with an emulator sucking up all the processor bandwidth. It's definitely better than not having a two player option at all, that's for sure. And while it's best played on the GBA portables, it's pretty slick on the GameCube's Game Boy Player.

I wish I could enjoy it. I've been looking for that for a while now, but none of the stores near me seem to have it :? Maybe I'll luck out and one of them will get a copy in.

Pick up a copy online, the price is very reasonable

Picked up Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiney CIB off ebay for 3.99 shipped.

Been pretty lucky lately on good ebay prices for PS2 games.

Still can't find a good price on KOF 2002/2003 though.

After reading some post about people saying they find stuff at goodwill I decided to go myself to a few ones around my neighborhood, the first ones were fail since most of the stuff they had were VHS movies, then I went to one by The Salvation Army and found some good stuff.

Each game was $2.99 each. =D

*Resident Evil 4 came with a used game cover like the ones from gamestop so I decided to replace it with a printed one.
