Hullo ! For Valentine's day, here in Ozstralia, there was a 'superdraw' in the lottery. needless to say I didnt win the 1st division jackpot($18m AUD) but I did win 3rd division, which will come to be [EDIT : hopefully]$1000 or so(the exact numbers are released on monday...)

I'm quite chuffed :D

Its funny though, I bought myself and my gf a ticket for the draw, I did an 'eenie meenie' to pick the one I was going to keep.... and now I'm a little bit richer...I'm hoping to put some of it towards a gamecube, with Rebel Strike, Sonic heroes, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.... :D

anyone else here had lotto luck ??

Happy, slightly wealthier Astro.... :D

hehe thanks.




I hate to break it to you but you need a gba for each person participating FF:CC multi player



So winning the lotto will about cover the price of playing FF:CC.

CONGRATS! sonic heros is an awsome game, i haven't played the other two, but you can get zero mission for free if you get metroid fusion on gba and metroide prime and beat fusioin and use the link cable, but CONGRATS(FINAL FANTASY SERIES, AND SONIC SERIES RULES!!!!)

That unlocks the The first metroid game for the NES.....not zero mission.



Zero mission is basicly a remake of it but with awsome graphics,way better control and way more lvls and bosses.



but buy fusion and prime anyway.

oh cause i did the hook up thing and i got extreamly good graphics on the first game, but i guess it isn't zero mission, but fussion is fun, but short, i suggest buying the guide(unless you're smart, unlike me)

Throw some money in a chest and toss that in your attic.



When the years pass by and you need some money for a gameagon 960, you will be happy that you put money where you would forget about it.

Of course it's possible, people win all the time. Poeple get struck by lightning, don't they?

Oh, and Astro, don't let this get you sucked into the lotto, bad bad bad.
