Blizzard's first shooter is an ace.

Homefront: The Revolution Review
Will this alternative-history FPS make players want to shout “Wolverines” or will they want to forget it ever existed (like the pathetic remake of Red Dawn)?

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

3DS Region Locking Makes Us a Sad Panda

When I used to work at Best Buy, every once in a while, you'd walk by the racks of Nintendo DS games and see an imported cartridge. It was like someone dropped a $20 on floor... except you had to pay for it.

I mean, of course half of the time it was an import cart of something kind of stupid, like a Shonen Jump fighting game...

Alright, it was something cool every time. It was nice knowing some random gem could come in the store and it would still work on your American DS.

Of course, region locking consoles means more control for platform holders and publishers. Take away freedom and you get money. That's how the Republican mind works, you see?

It should come as no surprise then that Nintendo's recent DSi and DSi XL region locking will carry through to the Nintendo 3DS. Of course, that's what a Korean website basing their story off of a call from a Japanese consumer to Nintendo Customer support is saying.

That might be pretty shaky confirmation, but I'd still take the odds and make a bet on it. $10 anyone? Seriously, if anyone is willing to bet the 3DS isn't region locked, I'll take it.
