    Location: Europe
    Company: Natsume
    Source: GBAtemp
    Save: Eeprom_v122
    Size: 8 Megabytes
    Language: english

    If you don't know the roots of the site no one's going to tell you.

    Yes I know the history..
    But, WHY did they dump a game?
    Cause there are bigger release groups, and also with the rules and all...

    No it isn't,
    There was a time when I made my own backups.
    Now I just go to rom sites. Ever since Phantom Hourglass...

    GBAtemp is such a nice place and the staff made the good decision to kill out warez.

    Damn, I never thought it's like that.

    So, where's KiVan, Omero, and Alexander right now?

    Edit: dice's been here since that long? and how come I can click on the links? Are they preserved so that we can see it (like a museum? [​IMG])

    I know...


    Anyways, I asked WHY GBAtemp broke their own rules and did the piracy.
    Not about the actual rom site, but... this is the testing area so maybe this is the TRUE meaning of whatever I just meant?
    Dammit, I got lost in my own flawed logic.
