Upon opening the Pelican 4-Player Link Cable
, the first words out of your mouth may very well be, 'Good lord, that's a LOT of cord!' True, that does rhyme. Also true: any 4-player cable is going to be a handful. Deal with it. With Pelican's extra-long cords, storing this product in handy spaces could be difficult without something to tie off with. Mad Catz had the right idea with an attached Velcro loop on their link cable; maybe Pelican can still learn a few things from the competition.
It should be noted that when testing the cable with Super Mario Advance for the first time, the three connected systems reported a connection error before starting a session. When we turned the machines off and back on again, everything worked fine. Whether this was a problem with the cable or human error, I can't be sure. Otherwise, though, I will be using this cable for months to come (unless, of course, a better product swings by). And hey, with the imminent release of Mario Kart Super Circuit just within reach, just try and name one reason NOT to get a 4-player link!
