A few weeks ago, Amazon unveiled the Dash, a handheld Wi-Fi magic wand/wrench-looking thingy that helps you keep your AmazonFresh shopping list (consisting of oatmeal, toilet paper, and the like…) up-to-date for-ev-vuur.

The problem with being said-fan of the game is that despite the clamor for it, Nintendo has never OFFICIALLY released Mother – often regarded as Earthbound Zero, due its cancelled plans to be released locally for the North American NES system –or Mother 3 on the Game Boy Advance outside of Japan — even though a faction of die-hard fans translated the ENTIRETY of Mother 3 from Japanese to English THEMSELVES and released it as a ROM hack in 2008 that I personally may-or-may-not have played… Read the rest of this entry
