    New segment for the Glitches: "Japanese for Gamers with Ben-sensei" 
    I want it... please.

    Team Region Unlocks for sure. And I hope folks aren't holding games hostage for good reviews. That's a terrible way to treat press.

    So weird to see you talk about region locks and even Japanese games in particular. I've just imported Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2 for the Switch and I'm so glad it's not region locked. Playing games is a much more fun way to learn Japanese than rote memorisation. The dialogue is predictable, so it's not that bad if you don't fully understand. The characters and their voice actors are great and haven't gone through a personality death through NA localisation either. Would be fun to see you struggle your way through a Japanese game, though it would take a while before you'd be at that level.

    I said it before and I'll say it again, seeing Ashley actually get invested in the Persona series is really endearing

    Thanks for discussing my topics again :) for the record, the region locking question came from the reverse situation of Ashley's problem where I'm in Australia and had to change my 360 to an American account to get a game, since digitally it doesn't come here, then was stuck for 6 months not being able to buy games here

    Regarding the bitterness from gamers about streamers getting early review copies, I can't really blame them. A lot of those people have these games preloaded, waiting to be played, and the only thing stopping them is that they don't have enough twitch subscribers. Personally I don't really care either way, but I understand where they're coming from.

    region locking sucks
    look at the snes in the states/japan its viewed as an rpg machine but games like final fantasy 4/6 chrono trigger mario rpg were never released in Europe.  I remember having to get an adopter to play us/Japanese games years ago and mode 7 games were fun they diddnt work ell lol.  same with megadrive i had a Japanese one as they were region free
