    + a Passkey2, all you need to play DS and GBA games on your DS, compatible with any DS version!

    Of course, the winner will have the choice to pick up a prize in the list in case he already owns a GCN, for example,
    the first runner-up will have a choice between what's left; and the loser will have no choice! Hahah!

    I, in the name of all GBAtemp staff, wish a very good luck to the nine contestants!
    Costello.

    Have you noticed? There is no staff member left in the lot [​IMG]
    yeah, we all suck at Mario Kart DS [​IMG]


    about the GCN.. it was really a surprise to see a member donate such a prize [​IMG]
    thieves_like_us, you must be either very rich, or have dozens of GCNs, or extremely generous [​IMG]

    also, needless to say, (but some idiots may ask.) we offer the shipping !
    hehehe

    Finally, we are nearing the end of the tournament. Soon we'll have the three winners, then all they have to do is battle to see who gets what prize. I'm sure that'll be an exciting round haha [​IMG]

    Best of luck to our nine contestants! Congratulations for coming this far. I'm sure you're all eager to get underway and prove you deserve the title of GBAtemp's Mario Kart Champion.

    I would have loved to join the tournament as a participant if not for the fact that I was too late to register. However, anyone I reffed can see that I would never be able to even get pass the first round so I guess it doesn't really matter much. [​IMG] Anyway, good luck to our nine finalists.

    And remember: only the winners of this round will recieve the tournament's prizes so make sure you all do your best. [​IMG]

    Huh how many people were in this tournament? i can't believe it's been going this long, and no one won yet? Actually how does this thing work since it's not official. Wouldn't people who use those techniques to get an advantage defently win compared to those who don't know how to use it, so how do they make these matches fair an even?

    Uh, no snaking is allowed.... and 'cheating' as well (falling off a place and having Lakitu pick you up to a much further ahead area).

    And you can see just how many people there were and how long it took, if you even care to. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showforum=61

    I'm amazed to see Tenkaichi so far ahead in this tournament...damn Girl, KICK ASS AND WIN!

    That being said, I'd actually take the flash cart over the GCN, to be honest...I mean sure you can get an dplay GCN games for free now and stuff, but the GCN really doesn't have that many good games...

    I'm officially cheering against Gore Street, hate 'n00b' references, sounds so damn elitist.

    Too bad vids can't be posted of the races, it'd be fun to follow the players along.
