WiiGator chomps down on modchips, plays GameCube backups

The WiiGator backup launcher is now available for gamers who'd prefer to keep their shelves untouched. The problem with painstakingly organizing game collections -- in alphabetical or autobiographical order -- is that you're bound to reach for a game the middle of the stack, ruining your careful work.

WiiGator allows gamers to play backup GameCube titles using the WiiHomebrew Channel, all without voiding your warranty by installing a modchip. Some known issues with the chipless wonder include: slight hiccups in game play, memory card issues, some titles not working at all and extreme diarrhea. Okay, that last one isn't true but something tells us that if it were true, it still wouldn't be a deal breaker for some of you. Check out the WiiGator in action after the break.
