    Crap.

    Lock down the testing area! Put up the shoutbox barricades!

    My god they suck... Of course, let the pirates discuss all they want, but ban homebrew discussion. Great move GameFAQs. Why don't you just go ahead and ban FAQs, so the whole site isn't worth anything anymore at all?

    Actually the FAQs section I still hold in high regard, it's just their forums suck majorly. I hope we don't get a noob influx in here, I have to say [​IMG]

    Agree 100%. The FAQ section is where I go to find walkthrus whenever I get stuck in a game. But I wouldn't touch the forums with a 10ft pole. It makes our testing area look like a bastion of highly intellectual discussion.

    Poor mods, looks like you'll be spammed with reports soon :\

    As much as I dislike their forums, their FAQs are top notch.

    Wait, since GBAtemp is owned by Cnet, does that mean GBAtemp will ban homebrew discussion too?

    That's exactly what I meant to say: the only part of the website that is worth anything is the FAQs section. But they're stupid enough to ban it some day [​IMG]

    Yes, it was an april fools joke...

    I wasn't aware that GameFaqs has a forum....I always used only the FAQs, and sometimes the info on games..that's all...

    Oh god yeah, I'd forgotten about that, LOL.

    GameFAQs boards are mainly trash, RI is fun for a distraction and the game specific boards are good for info on any given game, but the system boards are full of bitching non-stop.

    GameFAQs only has good FAQs, their forums are a mess.
    Half the stuff on their DS board is about the R4 and CycloDS.

    I have to say, it's about time they did. No, not saying it like "they should've done this from the start" but more of "I was honestly surprised this didn't come around sooner." I mean for God's sake, it was through GFAQs that I got enough information for my M3! All those years ago, hehe...

    Though now, oh my God. Go to the Brawl boards, but be sure to seal your brain in a jar first. You know, for safety's sake. The other boards...there are at most a handful of intelligent topics, but fads happen faster than even here, and trolling goes unchecked because there are too few mods to care (and there are a mythic shit-ton of people too).

    I suppose I'm going to be here a bit more often, aha.

    Oh dear lord. Please Cnet, don't ban homebrew talk. I don't want those GameFAQ idiots to flock here.

    Perhaps we should make new users complete an IQ test when they register, that'd weed out all the crummy ones.
