Look At My Stick (The Things We Do For Love) Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Some time ago we reported on the existence of Europe-only GameCube flight sticks. Unfortunately, they haven't been available in the US - since the prevailing industry opinion seems to be that Americans are no longer interested in flight games. But all was not lost! My recent trip to France was an excellent excuse to smuggle a GameCube 'stick back to the states (wrapped in dirty laundry, to evade customs crack team of joystick sniffing dogs).

But how does this help us? There's no Wing Commander game for the GameCube - and no one cares about freakish new ways to navigate Animal Crossing. You forget, however, the GameBoy Player! By putting one (GameCube), one (GameBoy Player) and one (GameCube Flightstick) together, I was able to play... PROPHECY ADVANCE WITH A JOYSTICK! Here's some pictures!

How does it play? Surprisingly well - it took me about ten minutes to become accustomed to the sensitivity of the joystick (I'm used to regular Prophecy with a first generation Sidewinder FF) -- but after that, Prophecy was smooth and fun! Now we just need a GameCube throttle and rudder pedals...

Joystick sniffing dogs?
