New Gamecube interactive demos at Best Buy....

They've updated the demos on the interactive displays with a new demo. It's got playable Mario Sunshine and Starfox Adventures on it. I would assume most other places have the new demos now. Mario is pretty fun. Haven't had to check out Starfox yet.

I've seen these at Gamestop and EB too. I tried Starfox and it got me excited for the full game. I was surprised to see that the much touted fur effects are in-game, not just for cutscenes.

I just wish Nintendo would make these demo discs available to the public like the other consoles have done. It would only help sales, and I'd like to try these things out before getting kicked off by some kid.

Don't let some kid push you around.

Just tell them to buzz off or just make them cry and runaway.

Yeah I hate those kids. But seriously, Nintendo should send these out to all 'Cube owners, or charge like $3 for it. Definitely would help out the "struggling" GC.

I'd fight back against the kids at the kiosks, but most are bigger than me!

It's much easier to push around the nerds that frequent the Xbox.

This is blasphemy, but after playing the Mario demo for the amount of time I could until the game reset I really don't have a lot of interest in it. I may pick it up at some point, but I really didn't get that great feeling I got playing Mario 64. Star Fox didn't really do much for me either.

The whole water pack thing just isn't working for me. I will give it a rental at some point so I can get a better idea of the game, but I just don't think its something I will want at a $50 price point.

I played a little Starfox today when I went to get the Sleepaway Camp kit and its it handles and looks great. For me though buying it or not is gonna hinge on how big the gameworld is.

Didnt play any Mario, no need. Im absolutely getting that.
