- High Dynamic Range Lying – Why is the iPhone failing in Japan?
Nayan Ramachandran returned to the States last month; he’d been living in Japan for three years. But where were all the iPhones? An interesting piece about the perception of Apple products abroad.
- 4 color rebellion – Majora’s Mask: Nintendo’s Fluke
A terrific analysis of ‘Majora’s Mask.’ I kind of giggled when I got to "If this next part sounds pretentious, forgive me and bear with me a little longer. Cool?" I like the preemptive apology for the ensuing analysis; Internet, I cry for you.

I don’t always love CollegeHumor, but the animation in this is really good!
- Retronauts Blog – Samus Aran and the Mysterious Case of the Wall Walkers
With the news of the Metroid: Prime trilogy coming to Wii, it’s easy for me to feel all lovey-dovey about Metroid retrospectives this week.
