This was back when we were just kinda starting out, and it's really not funny, but it's here for archival purposes. Message board post from a former G4 employee: <em><span>"Here's a short list of G4's reasons for not picking up MEGA64:</span></em> <span> </span> <span><span><em>'They're too niche'.</em></span></span> <span><span> </span></span> <span><span><span><em>'No one will understand them.'</em></span></span></span> <span><span><span> </span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><em>'Their humor isn't broad enough.'</em></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span> </span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span><em>'They're not that funny.'</em></span></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span> </span></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span><span><em>'Too low budget.'</em></span></span></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span><span> </span></span></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span><span><span><em>'The concept can't support a whole show.'</em></span></span></span></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span><span><span> </span></span></span></span></span></span></span> <span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><em>How do I know this?
