SPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOORRRRRTTTTTTSSS

Bath time for videogames!

Videogames probably aren't real life. Link never has to worry about smelling terrible after jogging halfway across Hyrule. Diddy Kong eats plenty of bananas, but never has any poop to throw at anybody. (Sad, I know.) I thin...

Goozex: A lack of confidence in the market
