    The funny ending to Tyler's story about buying his Wii is that he ended up selling it to me, and I still have it. And no, I haven't played it in about a year.

    I'm a little late, but I had to stop by and give thanks.

    Amazon ftw (I'm broke now) and I have Tony Hawk American Sk8land for my DS, love it! I'm glad that Ride is failing, maybe end this peripheral crap. Seriously there are a ton of games that are good though so take the glass half full or half empty.

    Nice early T-dar. P.S That Emblem in the middle of the Radarnauts pic needs to be made into a patch. So I can stick it on a decent jacket. (To the moon Alice)

    When reflecting upon what I am thankful to all of you guys for continually busting your asses every gahtdang(it Bobby) week to bring us fantastic content. I really am. Thank you all so much. Boner! There, now it's not too sentimental, and nobody has to deal with any emotions.

    Let us rejoice, siblings!

    Thanksgiving was in October for Canadians. Maybe I still have some month old leftovers so I can still celebrate.
