Nintendo's "Mature" Card Series coming to America. Find out more inside...

Thanks to Wes for sending this to me. I'm surprised I didn't find this myself, seeing is I am a total Quake CTF (Capture the Flag)freak. If you've ever played the original Quake Threewave CTF, and loved it, you must thank it's producer, David "Zoid" Kirsch. Well Zoid has basically been the man over... Read more...
