I stand corrected. :lol:
I have done zero research on this, but it seems a number of older games are available on newer consoles. I know you can download a number of old nintendo games onto your Wii. I assumed this was the trend with all older games....

My friend and I took my goddaughter to see Legend of the Guardians last year in the theater. She was about a month from turning 3. We went in the middle of the day and were luckily the only people in the entire theater. About 20 minutes in, she said, "Is it over?" That was basically how she sign...

Why can't a town as conservative as BR have a libertarian mayor who will come in an wreck shop? If I ran for mayor, I would promise a massive reduction of the government. All a city government needs is a police force, a court system, a fire department, a public education system, a few attorneys on...
