What's with all the under-18 hatred?

What do they mean by 'The new Stargate SG-1 video game will be available at retail beginning Holiday 2005'? Which holiday, summer or winter?

August 26th, 2004, 07:01 AM
Holiday usually means winter.

August 26th, 2004, 07:03 AM
Thanks, to me holiday means summer, but thats the same time as the US, being on the other side of the world and all it can get confusing.

August 26th, 2004, 07:11 AM
Only in the US, over 18? WTF is this about? It's a bit stupid really, not just people over 18 will consider buying the game. Stupid people! :p

August 26th, 2004, 11:42 AM
I feel for you who are under 18, but it's a matter of legal age. In the US, generally, you have to be 18 or older to enter into a contract on your own.

Plus, the character needed for the game is probably an adult.
