The Japanese don't really celebrate Christmas and today they continue to work but, they do seem to get more celebrations! At least more than us in the UK anyway! Meanwhile over at my place in the UK, it's completely silent outside. No cars or people walking by just houses lit up. It was still really packed in the town centre this afternoon...

Nintendo World 2006 Event Coverage and Hours of Waiting

I really don't know how the Japanese manage to queue near 4 hours for a shot of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They either have a lot patience, people holding places for them or some sort of ticket system going... Otherwise they would have been there for almost an entire day just to try out one game! (...

Konami & Kojima’s TGS 2006 Special Sites

At first, I thought it was just "Engrish" but then I saw the site designer spelled the word "thirsty" right in orange so i'm guessing it's a typo. But anyway, cool site design! I like all these cans... Reminds me of when I used to buy those mini can drinks from Woolworths :P You'll find some interesting trailers here including the new...
