A few months back gbev sent me an e-mail about a musical connection in MOTHER 3: Mother 3 clearly has a lot of recurring themes and similarities in its soundtrack, but I think I just picked up on a new one!

Check it out: Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play ...Read More »

- JCSmith: I think I might just call up my local Gamestop and ask if they’ve got these boxes. If they do, I’ll sweet talk the manager...
