I found out this week that the Wii U can do 1080p over a component cable connection. If it's not hogging a HDMI slot, it's just earned a permanent spot under my TV!
Yeah the GC is the crazy cable that had a Digital->Analogue converter built into the cable itself. This just takes Wii cables, and they're pretty cheap.I was about to say good luck in finding the component cable, but it is the Gamecube component cable that is the hard one to find (glad I have one already as they go for like $300-500 on ebay).
I'm about 15 hours in, just got the Master Sword. Things are feeling a lot more epic now.Yeah I played it for like 6 hours and it was just slow and boring as hell still. I also hated the stupid waggle controls that were completely unnecessary, as I played it on the Wii.
I did love Ocarina of Time though.
I was tempted to do the same, but it's all tied to a single piece of aging hardware. I know it's going to die eventually, and I'll lose all those purchases. In the end I got the Metroid Prime Trilogy, mostly just because I wanted to play the games again.Still using mine from time to time, and I spent a good bit of money getting rare and Wii U only games downloaded before the e-shop closed this last year too.
