Nintendo Game Cube (Sports, Games and Toys)

"Could you show me how to hook up your Game Cube?"

Before the Wii, the Game Cube was the video game system that Nintendo used to promote its Super Mario Brothers franchise. Still available in stores today despite originally going on sale in 2001, one can be yours for about $99.99. It is surprising, though, that Logan is still playing one of these. It would seem like he should have a Wii or a PlayStation 3. All the cool kids have one. And you would think that all young adults who live without parental supervision in four-star hotels definitely have one.

Mario Kart (Sports, Games and Toys)

"You know, you can play Mario Kart online. We should have a weekly game or something, keep you sharp."

Here we go! Wahahahahaha!! Mario Kart may very well be the best racing game of all time, as it combines some of gaming's most beloved characters with slick racing gameplay that involves shooting turtle shells that richochet off walls and turning all of your opponents into teeny-tiny little people. It's easy to learn how to play but impossible to stop playing. Well, sometimes your mom unplugs the console. That pretty much does it.
