So today, I copped out on digging out and hooking up the Dreamcast to celebrate its 10th anniversary by playing the GameCube equivalent of Sonic Adventure 2 and Crazy Taxi on the Wii (I may play the real DC next weekend). It could either be karma against my laziness, or just the universe trying to inform me that something is amiss and I need to take notice, but either way, bad news.
The games are fine; however, their data on the big-arse GameCube memory card I received a few years ago have become corrupt. What’s strange is, when I went to load the data, it was fine; any subsequent saving or loading, however, was no good.
Now I’m worried about my other data, and am not touching any of it. Fortunately, I have my original memory card which I believe has most of the data still on it… unless something happened there, too. I’m worried to check, and the data menu of the Wii just tells you about the data, it can’t tell if it is corrupted.
I guess this means I call Nintendo tomorrow, and hope something can be done. But has this happened to anyone else?
On the upside, this may mean that the copy of Pac-Man World 3 I picked up for a few bucks used a while back may not be beyond hope; that game would not allow me to save, and I thought something was wrong with the game. So if I can get this straightened out, I may give that one another try sometime.
