    Virtue's Last Reward has me caught up in the game

    No, I am not LeVar Burton, but I've been told by several people (read: no one) that I greatly resemble him. This is your notice that Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is available right now on 3DS and PS Vita. I'm plugging my way through right now and can't think about much else.

    Japanese Pokemon Black/White is DSi region locked

    I flipped out on the plane a few hours ago. Being detained at the airport was a shock, but being blocked from playing Pokemon White on the flight home almost broke me. Thank God I'm home now, and can get started on the game u...
