    TETRIS DS TOURNAMENT NEWS
    As many of you had noticed, there was a 'slight' problem in the list of matches. Actually, a large part of the list got shifted when some of the members decided to leave the tournament. I have now fixed this, by replacing the missing players by a fake member, "-player gave up-". Everything should be all right now.

    I have also grouped all the tetris DS tourney participants in a unique member group. This group will have access to the match forums, while the other groups won't be bothered by the daily flood. They will also be the only group to receive bulk e-mails about the tournament.

    Also, we have decided to extend the delay for this first round, knowing how difficult it is to find a time between all 4 players, as many of them don't even show up. You now have until June 18th, Midnight GMT to play your match. We will send more e-mail reminders as the date comes closer.

    Also, to help motivate you, I'll remind you the list of prizes for this tournament:
    1 brand new Enamel Navy DS Lite
    1 Famicom Disk "The Legend of Zelda" signed by Shigeru Miyamoto
    1 Supercard SD + Passme

    Surprises? I love surprises! Because when they come, I can act all surprised like "Whaaa?" or "Fuck yeah!". Unless of course the surprise is a male virtual stripper. Then I'm runnin for the fucking hills.

    Just for you guys, I'm going to let you know the surprise! TPi and Dirite (If your already thinking this will lead to a lawsuit, your right.) have signed a movie deal with Fox to use their characters as two cops travelling through time somehow and killing historical figures, politicians, teachers, children, animals, prosti... you know what, just about anything in their way. Sounds like a Fox flick to me through and through. Oh and the name of the movie is Halo. It's due out in 2008.

    Edited: Spelling mistakes in my sentences of pure crap.
