A successful year is contained in the Holiday season and the 3 months before April 1. When people say that the next few months are gonna be busy, they're right, but they are seriously underestimating the first months of '08.

I NEED MORE MONEY! I love the Mario Kart Series.

Here's a question for ya...If Mario was like 40 back in '83, doesnt that make him like 64? Old people can't drive. Everyone knows that.

Does anyone else find it funny when someone claiming to not care about the Wii or Nintendo obviously cares enough to read the Wii news section and post trolling comments?
