Pixelitis - NYCC '11: Interview with Operation Rainfall

It seems like grassroots movements have been all the rage lately. In politics there's the Tea Party, across the world there's the Occupy movement and even gaming has its own equivalent with Operation Rainfall.

Pixelitis' Patrick Kulikowski got the chance to meet up with Richard Ross, an admin of Operation Rainfall, to discuss the group's goals at the most fitting place: across from the Nintendo booth at New York Comic Con. (Culture, New York Comic Con, Nintendo, Wii)

Nice. I really appreciate you for posting the interview. I have not heard much from Operation Rainfall since Xenoblade's European release.

On a smaller note... (sorry) how can you even suggest that Op Rainfall is an equivalent to the Tea Party? Operation Rainfall wants something very specific (games that already exist). The Tea Party wants things that can only be defined as relative (people to listen to their paper thin rhetoric and cliches).

Well, the comparison was made that both are grass roots organizations full of extremely passionate people working toward their perceived goal.

Whether it be a staunch right-wing agenda or the release of three Japanese games, their gumption surely isn't lacking.
