    Hehe Gamespot where you can get banned for even mentioning R4, and then their owner would then go and "aquire" with one of the places where R4 is mentioned most on the net [​IMG]

    I remember last year when the GBATemp slot1 card was due out and that was "no joke WE PROMISE!!" [​IMG]

    ooh nm w8.. I QUIT!! [​IMG]

    lol, this is all a f***ing joke, right? Censorship? Removal of site sections? Nice April Fool's Day joke, because in Polynesia it's been April Fool's Day for a while now. Well, at least there are other scene sites out there if this turns out to be true. Wow.

    It certainly better be an April Fool's day joke.

    I don't believe for a moment that GBAtemp would be sold to these assholes...screw CNET and screw GameSpot. Rubbish sites, if you ask me.

    Well, let's hope things doesn't change THAT much. A lot of people leaving, that is sad, but only the strongs will remain.

    ^ This!

    Hell I'm STILL not sure if this is a joke or not, like I got really upset, then realized it was the 1st and was cool about it but now I'm not sure what to think anymore.
