Boy howdy, we simple folks here at the Victory Vault are all a twittter since the postman air dropped our special package. The Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer Edition! How the postman was able to evade our anti-aircraft batteries I'm not sure but he should be saluted for doing his duty!

"Shaq-Fu, a fighting game released by EA in 1994 and starring US basketball player Shaquille O'Neal, is widely considered to be one of the worst games ever made. Taking direct action against it, Shaqfu.com is dedicated to buying up and destroying all remaining copies of the game."

I cannot speak for the other Vault Dwellers but I salute you Shaqfu.com, *sniff*, I salute you.
