    I picked up Tron 2.0 Killer App for the GBA for $5.00 at Best Buy the other day. Much to my surprise, it contains two classic arcade games: Tron and Tron Deadly Discs, which weren't included with the Xbox version of the game.

    Best Buy had a few other GBA titles on clearance, plus a handful of GameCube games.

    A. There are plenty of retro gamers who will be interested to know that Best Buy is selling GBA games on the cheap, especially something Tron related.

    B. Posting a signature with a message on a forum is a common practice.

    C. Why you would be rude to a stranger is anyone's guess.

    My site has game reviews, comic book reviews, etc., plus there's a link to purchase my book. Not a big deal, really.

    O RRLY? then why are you..
    A.) trying to get people to goto your site with Game reviews
    B.) trying to get people to buy something off amazon
    and
    C.), create an absolutely pointless topic to advertise your site?

    I also noticed you edited the link out of your original post, so lets see you explain yourself out of this one.
    also noted, there are no links on your site that link back to GR.

    I agree with madster. He's advertising. That's all this guy does. And besides, why are you talking about a crappy GBA came that nobody knows about? I'll tell you why, because you are trying to advertise it.

    I don't work for Best Buy, I just thought gamers might want to know about it. I make no money off people buying a GBA game.

    I frequently promote other people's books and other websites, along with stores that sell vintage video games.

    The people who post on the websites you mention don't seem to mind hearing about good deals, such as chain stores dumping older product and free online magazines. In fact, many of them appreciate it.

    Yes, I deleted the link because it was indeed advertising which is specifically stated to be against the terms & conditions. What people don't mind and what the owners of the site have deemed as against the rules are two different things. Additionally we don't appreciate quintuple posts which is why I've deleted two of the triple posts you made, I would combine the others but I can't be arsed so in future use of the [​IMG] button, it's not difficult to stick in a few quote tags yourself either.

    Now, this topic has served its 'purpose' so let's say goodbye to it.
