Now sources are saying that Nintendo MIGHT debut the Revolution at E3. Fraid of missing the hoop-la are we? I admit I have a Game Cube, but of all my systems, it gets played the least.

AH….you know, filing for something as important on a trademark on your new companies name should be a lot easier than it is, but instead it is an enormous pain in the behind. Instead I get to tear my hair out and run screaming into the night. Class? What class do I fall into? Someone… read more
