    I just heard the new news. Peter Griffin has just acquired CNET. Quagmire is now a mod on this site and Stewie just won the Primaries.

    This is great news...

    It isn't the 1st in the USA yet.

    But... As you probably know, many of GBAtemp's staff members are from Europe.

    A head start for April Fools? Sounds like it to me.

    this really does suck, because GBAtemp will never be as good as it once was. In a couple of weeks you won't see me as often because of this change.
    I hope CNET knows that they've lost many of GBAtemp's members. [​IMG]

    lol

    I agree.
    Without ROM release information and such - why take over GBAtemp? You've got GameFAQs for general gaming discussions.

    I smell greed.

    It's DEFINITELY an April Fools' Day joke. It's already past midnight or near enough now in most parts of Europe. (Didn't check original post time, but even then it'd be 4/1 in Australia already ffs!)

    I'd've found it amusing had they done an entire skinning like /. did for OMG! Ponies! That was f***ing hilarious... Too bad they haven't topped that one again... yet...

    April fools or not, its good in a way, but if it changes the way this site is used, then i vote for a new site. if people make one, make sure to pm me or email me, lol, don't leave me out.

    most important:
    -jump translation (well, there is the owner's wiki for this..)
    -home of rayder's large cheat database.
    -*********** release names (mostly for the numbering system)
    -wiiscene release names (doesn't concern me, but its important as well)
    -gbascene release names (doesn't concern me as well, but its important)
    -latest on wiibrew
    -latest on dsbrew
    -latest on gbabrew

    if any of those get affected greatly, i will be leaving for sure.
    I also love this site for the flashcard talk and information/opinion sharing on which card is better.


    If it wasn't for this site, i wouldn't even know a new game came out, and i would never buy them because i wouldn't even know they came out. (wow, i repeated my point twice in that sentence)

    Aw well, whatever happens, it will mostly like be for the best.

    And even if it is an April fools joke, I'm glad i got the opportunity to post my thoughts. hope the mods don't take it over and edit it. [​IMG]
    I don't see any reason to edit my post anyways, unless free speech is no longer allowed in a forum that gave all its users blogs, lol.


    EDIT: I CANT BELIEVE WHAT WAS EDITED WHEN I POSTED THIS TOPIC. "D-S- -S-C-E-N-E"
    im beginning to get mad already.

    THERE IS NO CNET!
    cnet is made of lies.

    or

    GBAtemp was owned by cnet from the start! and it is all just an elaborate plan to destroy NINTENDO! then the PSP fanboys will prosper!! Mwahahaha!

    whoever controls the cnet(or google) controls the interwebz

    You know, with that sentence, and the Golden Sun thing, I'm kinda wondering if this is real too. I mean, if you get rid of ROM/Homebrew, then what's the point?
