I love some motherfuckin’ Sam’s Club

I can’t help myself.

For those unaware, you go in, get a membership, and you can seriously buy items in bulk at wholesale. Sam’s caters to small business owners, as well as the individual consumer.

Now, here’s the best part: Yes, you can go in, get 60 rolls of toilet paper for $20, or three 2 qt family size bottle of ketchup for $9.99, or this week’s latest DVD release for about $3-5 off what even Wal-Mart (Sam’s parent company) is selling it for ... Then, you can go a little further into the store and buy a utility shed. Or a canoe. Or, and I stumbled upon this just recently, a Global Arcade.

From the item description:

What in the world is "The New Zealand Story?"

According to its Wikipedia entry, the answer to your question is, "the best fucking game EVER!":

"The player controls a sneaker-wearing kiwi called Tiki, and the aim of the game is to rescue several of his kiwi chick friends who have been kiwi-napped by a leopard seal. The player has to navigate a scrolling maze-like level, at the end of which they release a kiwi trapped in a cage."

In other words, it's a historical recount of how New Zealand was colonized & established its independence as a nation.
