About
"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1

"The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1

"I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes

Sheik and Toon Link amiibo wish you a happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day makes most people I know feel uncomfortable. The modern concept of the holiday has been designed around taking heartfelt expressions of attention/appreciation/affection and packaging them into rote, uniform l...

Beard View: Yo-Kai Watch

I was worried about Yo-Kai Watch when it was first announced. Putting out a manga, anime and game series all in one fell swoop is no small financial undertaking. Given that Level-5 isn't a multi-billion dollar outfit, they h...

#Fortune is a game that predicts your future by reading your tweets
