It's March 7th. GDC in San Fran is over. Pandalicious and I are on the East Coast, and while most days the fact that so many of our West Coast counterparts got to join in on some key learnings around the video game industry from the developers that define it would have me seething with envy, I know that PAX East (The Penny Arcade Expo) is 4 days away.

What do you get when you cross Gainax from car manufacturer Subaru? A Magical Girl show, apparently!

Houkago no Pleiades (Wish Upon Pleiades) is the tale of a girl named Subaru (of course) who gets caught up in a battle between good and evil.

With the Nintendo 3DS heading our way later this month, I’m already counting down the days until I get to enjoy some glasses-free 3D fun.  There have been a lot of people out there who are skeptical about the value of picking up Nintendo’s new system on the day it comes out.  While I can certainly understand the reasons for waiting, it’s just not something I’m willing to do this time around.  Stick around, hit the break and I’ll fill you in on why I just can’t wait for this one.
