Gamecube Coverage Continues

November 22, 2001

We've told you what we think of the Xbox, and we've given you a checklist for purchasing one. The same goes for the PS2, although that launch already seems ages ago. Now we've got the scoop on the Gamecube. Get our take on the system in Jeremy's Nintendo Gamecube: The Little System That Could. And if you're buying a GC for somebody else this season (parents, I'm looking at you), make sure you get the scoop on what you need in our Gamecube Checklist. It's not all in the box. Happy Thanksgiving, America.

Five Chances to Win!
We introduced our Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within Sweepstakes a few weeks ago, and the response has been great. However, we just found out that we can expect FIVE PRIZE PACKAGES, meaning that FIVE lucky GF! readers will win all kinds of great stuff. We were so excited we had to let you know. Now click here to enter.
Doctor Zhivago Review (DVD)
All the other sites, from to Cheat Code Central, are covering DVDs, so we thought we'd get our piece of the action. Since two of the three console videogame systems double as DVD players, we think it makes sense. So you can expect us to cover movies with the same insightful criticism we use on the games, and if that doesn't work we'll whip out some kung-fu. So let's start with a classic film newly released on DVD, David Lean's Doctor Zhivago. It gives me chills just thinking about it.

HALO Review (Xbox)

November 18, 2001

The Xbox launch has been dominated by a long-anticipated first person shooter: HALO is just about everything you could have ever hoped for. With stellar AI, amazing graphics, excellent gameplay, and a great story, it's just about there. Unfortunately, we're not willing to call this one finished. Find out why here.
Monopolies, Megacorporations and Myopia
With all the discussion and debate about console systems going on these days, we hear a lot of opinions. As a result, we often form our own opinions, although at GF! there is rarely consensus among us, except that games come first. So in the spirit of lively debate, I offer you Monopolies, Megacorporations and Myopia, addressing one of the frustrating arguments I hear way too often: Xbox = Bill Gates. Click.

Xbox Vs. PS2 Redux

November 15, 2001

Over a year ago we posted the original Xbox Vs. PS2 editorial, and it's been incredibly popular. However, it's also very out of date, so we've updated with a whole new editorial, Xbox Vs. PS2 Redux. You can check it out here. And if your mind is already made up, you'll need to know what to get when you pick up your Xbox. To help out, we've got a brief Xbox Checklist that should help out.
ICO Review (PS2)
Possibly the most beautiful game yet for PS2 is ICO, the strange story of a little boy with horns growing out of his head. Normally, that would be cool, except in his culture they sacrifice little boys with horns growing out of their heads. Click here for the whole review.

Notes Scribbled in the Dark While Playing HALO
