Go 大 or go 家

Friday the 13th is rapidly approaching, and you all know what that means.

That's right, it's International IM Unicode day! Spread the word!

I recently ordered my first import game, レイトンと不思議な町, (Professor Layton and the Mysterious City,) from Play-Asia. It's a detective story/puzzle game that's been getting rave reviews. The only problem is that it's completely in Japanese. Well, I thought that it wouldn't be a bad way to force myself to really practice a language, and to really dig in and learn it, but so far, I haven't really been playing it too much. The game itself looks absolutely gorgeous, but it's pretty discouraging when it takes ten minutes (or longer) just to read one line of dialogue, even assuming I can do that much. We'll see how far I get.
