This week Mel looks back at the GameCube. A system he holds much affection for despite being pretty poor in some categories. Within, he discusses the highlights of the hardware and software in this retrospective about that little purple box.
Mel takes a look at backward compatibility as handled by the three major console makers. Why has the feature all but vanished this generation and what might be expected of it in the future?

In the final podcast of 2012–and Lusipurr.com’s 200th recorded podcast–Lusipurr and SiliconNooB are forced once again to report upon Nintendo’s misdeeds. Also, Tony Greig and the PS2 both begin the long walk from the present into the pages of history.
Sony has finally ceased shipping their beloved PS2 console, sorrowful farewells are made to Cricketing great, Tony Greig, and idiot gamers offer their support to the NRA in the news of the week.
This week, Deimosion and Blitzmage report the news by themselves with disastrous consequences for all concerned. Lusipurr halts the constant inclination toward off-topic discussion, but soon every sentence ends with ‘banana’. Also, hats are advocated.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB are forced to have ‘the talk’ with Blitzmage, in which the older and wiser instruct the younger as to the realities of existence, and the fact that Final Fantasy is just a video game. Also: Metroid on the WiiU, and AMD everywhere.
In an effort to demonstrate his lecturing capability, Lusipurr tells Blitzmage and SiliconNooB a story. Then, after they awaken, Final Fantasy XIII news dominates the panel’s time. Buoyed by this, the participants finally avoid a series of lengthy rants.
The staff and readers of Lusipurr.com embark upon a playthrough of one of the most epic RPGs ever produced: Final Fantasy XII. Participate by playing the game and by commenting on this thread, which will be updated throughout the four-week feature.
