Jul

How often have you rolled your eyes when a musician said 'haha, oh you! you don't need music theory, custom-made gear, you don't even need to know how to play! all you's need is heart.'

Ball Pits And Backlash, Has DashCon Learned Its Lesson?

Jul
19

DashCon has released a fairly long press release explaining what went wrong at their convention, assuring us that these problems will be fixed for next year, and in some cases trying to make amends. There will of course be kneejerk doubters among you who insist on calling the whole thing a scam, but now is not the time for paranoia.

Jul
18

Nintendo debuted a video series called Cat Mario Show on the European eShop yesterday, and it's more than a little strange.
