NINTENDO GAMECUBE TDEV DEVELOPMENT TOOL KIT

This brown Gamecube is part of a development and optical disc emulation system. Similar to a NPDP-GDEV, it uses the hard disk and CPU of a host PC to perform Gamecube optical disc emulation.

The TDEV was a cheaper alternative. It has a USB 2.0 connection on the bottom and has twice the RAM of a stock Gamecube. Some universities used these for their programming classes.

The disc it comes with enables you to send graphics to it right away (assuming you have the right software and the USB cable). It was built by SN Systems and Nintendo to work with SN Systems Prodg software.

The interface has an expiring certificate. Once it expires, the hardware no longer works; it locks you out. You needed to be an educational institution participating in the T-Dev program and get fresh certs which last only a semester’s length of time.

Bioshock Infinite Mind in Revolt Book Autographed New/SealedSo I had the great pleasure of being one of many that attended the Bioshock Infinite launch event that went down at the Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles. I also happened to be the first in line at said event and because of this I was given a mysterious envelope by an Irrational Games rep who told me that only 5 of these were signed to be given out at the five launch events. I also found out that this copy was the only one signed by multiple Irrational Games developers and voice actors while the remaining 4 were only signed by Ken Levine. Pre-signed by voice actors Troy Baker (Booker DeWitt), Courtnee Draper (Elizabeth), Kiff VandenHeuvel (Comstock), and various developers including the man himself, Ken Levine (Creative Director/Lead Writer).

Word Safari GBA – A reader told me they had an alert on eBay and regularly checked Amazon for about three years and a single copy did not ever show up until early last year. It also was not listed on most rarity/completion lists until this year. Right now they run about $80 on Amazon, and this is the first one on eBay in a while. The companion to this game, Math Patrol, is also pretty rare.

  1. While it’s true Faselei! wasn’t released, by SNK, it’s not true that it didn’t get released at all. This along with Last Blade (another ready but not ‘released’ before the system died) were both sold to resellers in auctions after SNK shut down. The games were then bundled into those 3rd party system + games or game blister packs and sold in stores all over the US.

    Faselei! and Last Blade were sold almost exclusively on eBay for a number of years by those sellers who bought a chunk of the stock. Where I got my copy nearly a decade ago.

    The games value has increased from what those sellers were originally selling them at, but it’s not worth what the auction wants.
