    I have recently found a collection of gamecube games that I would like to complete, but if I want to play them I may need another memory card. My first memory card has very minimal space(52 blocks) and my other one corrupts saved data(which I recently found out today). Should I get another memory card?

    Well, the answer is pretty obvious, yes. I mean, you can't play your games without one, so it would be a very smart move to buy one.

    I actually transfer my GameCube saves to my PC every once in a while in case my memory cards are ever corrupted. Lost my Resident Evil saves a while back and wasn't very happy about that.

    Of course... if you can find one. Also make sure to keep it in a secure area. I flipping lost my other memory card and I'm still rather put out by that.

    A gamecube memory card isn't that expensive now and days I can tell you that for sure! I buy mine off the internet because I know what is good(as in official and cheap) than bad(as in a duplicate and horrible). I recently bought a memory card for five dollars and it works like a charm! I haven't gotten any problem with my memory card. Also since you find many gamecube games interesting why not? Also I recommend buying a gamecube card with more blocks since 52 seems to be really small.

    I would, especially if you have any hope of playing those games. Besides like everyone says they are relative inexpensive nowadays, I actually just looked it up and you can find them on amazon for as cheap as 9 dollars. So I think that it's totally worth it!

    If you want to play the games then yeah, I would think it's a good idea. Personally, I still tend to play older games downloaded on either the WII or PS3. These games tend not to take up much space to save, so I don't think I'll ever need another memory card for a long time. Downloading the games does require quite a bit of space though.

    Yeah they're a necessity really if you want to play a variety of games. I recommend hitting up eBay, you can get some 128mb/2000+ blocks for £4.50 , a real bargain.

    You really should to be honest. It would be a smart move. I for example have around 4 memory cards but also a backup unoffical memory card just in case one stops working.
