EDIT: By the way, you needn't spend another penny on Nintendo products if you're willing to forfeit your moral convictions long enough to follow this guy's example.
Gamestop should really keep those things behind the desk with the games. Although I'm not sure I'd trust some of the guys at my Gamestop to not register the games themselves if they were back there.

Also, that guy's voice sounds almost exactly like what I'd expect the voice of a guy who does something like that to sound like.

Since I work at a place that sells games, I'm telling you right now that keeping the registration cards with the discs is a ridiculous idea.
Although it's true, a lot of people never register the games before they sell them to us. I probably have several used games with unused registration numbers lying around.
That was a joke.

Yes, I am like the young Luigison. I am by no means rich, but as a healthy single dude with a job, no kids, and no debts, I can easily pump thousands of dollars into gaming with no repercussions.

I'm pretty sure the guy in that video just came up with that idea in his head without actually trying it.

Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

Sorry to bump, but I have some crap to say, hat-wise.

I'd say the hat.... I think that's the closest thing we'll ever get to an actual, in-relative-proportion Mario hat.

I hate seeing normal baseball hats or trucker hats with a mesh back half on it with a huge white circle glued on it that has a generic, Arial font "M" printed on it. Also, I hate seeing people trying to pass off Newsboy caps with the brim button popped as a legitimate Mario hat.... Mario's hat isn't poofy or anything. (Although... the Newsboy I have is actually very close to the shape of Mario's hat, but does have a bunch of seams coming from the center button on top.

So yeah, I'd take the hat on account of not owning Punch-Out.
Formerly quite reasonable.
