Gaffer MiketheBSG got robbed, bigtime. Yesterday some burglar broke into his place, stole $US26,000 worth of electronics, his girlfriend's jewelry and traumatised his dog. If there's a silver lining? His 228 Virtual Console and 30 WiiWare games were all restored by Nintendo to his new Wii. Ordinarily Nintendo doesn't allow such transfers. But my guess is they saw the volume of his catalog, not to mention heard about the 151 and 127 GameCube and DS games lost in the theft, and figured he was a good customer who definitely deserved a break. So, good on Nintendo. But the burglar is a piece of shit forever.
