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

Here's the latest way to region unlock your 3DS

Last November, Nintendo talked a little about rethinking their policies of region locking. Seems like common sense to me. The gains they'd make in consumer goodwill by allowing a few games to more easily make it overseas wou...
