Gradius V should do better than that...

But yes, good sales for Paper Mario 2.

Great Rumbler
I guess shooters just aren't as popular as they used to be.

OB1
I want Paper Mario 2 so bad...

Great Rumbler
As do we all.

OB1
I'm sure there are a few people here that don't want it.

A Black Falcon
Like people who don't like RPGs?

OB1
Yeah. Dumb people. :p

Great Rumbler
You'd have to be REALLY dumb not to want Paper Mario 2.

OB1
Yeah, so who here doesn't want it???

bountyhunter
*is reminded of this one deer hunting documentry*

Quick run for the hills imaginary friend! they're aiming for the neck!

*runs and attempts to dive over a small mound of dirt*

Great Rumbler
I can't say that I've ever seen a deer hunting documentary before...

OB1
Well you don't know what you're missing!

Great Rumbler
I guess not...

bountyhunter
Wait either it was a documentary or...

... Oh yeah, that arcade game deer hunter, man that thing sucked.

Great Rumbler
Yeah it did.
