  1. London Drugs - A Cache of Limited Edition 3DS Games

    In the dark dusty corners of London Drugs, the employee barely looked up to greet me and I was free to peruse the archives of old computer games that are destined for the trash can one day or another. I found treasure in that dimly lit, neglected department.

    If you're anything like me, you are torn between buying a video game at launch or waiting it out and waiting for the price to drop. At launch, ...
  2. Symphony of the Goddesses Second Quest in Vancouver

    Yesterday night, the Vancouver Symphony performed the Symphony of the Goddesses Second Quest. I missed the first one, but fortunately this time around I wasn't going to miss it. So I ordered tickets pretty early on and was pretty excited for the event. It was pricey, even after using Club Nintendo's discount code (at the moment it is BOKOBLIN) it was $67 per seat.

  5. Gmail Categories - Primary, Social, Promotion, Updates, Forums

    Gmail's latest update includes a new category feature to sort your inbox. It is being rolled out to batches of users at a time, so it has not been implemented across all accounts just yet.
