About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    Damn. Why couldn’t it be in the best buy in Levittown,ny?

    So basically, the qualifiers are a big joke unless you live in one of these areas. Don’t get me wrong, it’s neat that the NWC is back… but clearly they didn’t even try to plan it in a way that would get more participation. Oh well. :/

    Hi, I live in not USA ._. … the best question is, people from outside USA can participate in this thing? like european people or japanese people, because exists Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of Japan, it will make sense to let people for that regions to participate and make the championship actually “Worldwide”. In my case, I live in Latin America so I don’t exist D:

    Sorry for my bad english

      So far as I know, it’s only USA… and even then, only limited to people that can get to the 8 cities they’re holding events at. 🙁
