Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Also, two new GameCubes sold in December? I honestly have no idea why that would happen or where they would be found in retail. It makes a lot more sense to just buy a Wii and have twice as much GameCube.
Just what are you trying to say here?
Actually, I would like to know your thoughts on this.
Afterall, you were the one who only delivered two of Nintendo's last gen consoles to children this year. How many wishlists from kids who just woke up from being comatose for half a decade did you disregard? When did you turn from being so jolly to a man who derives satisfaction from shattering the hopes and dreams of kids who want an old gaming system that has been off the market for years and is housed entirely within a new system that can be found everywhere?
And lastly, why not give each of those kids another GameCube and some duct tape.
