At long last we are able to announce the winners of the first Bi-Yearly GBAtemp Awards. From the nominations last month to the polls that have been running all this month you have chosen the members, sigs and games you think deserve these awards. The competition was fierce and I think everyone who contributes to the board deserves a big thank you from all the staff. Hope to see you all back here later in the year for more of the same!
