I didn't know Blu Rays were still region locked. I got the European Harry Potter box set and it works fine on my American player.
It depends on what company is selling it. Some Blu-Rays are region locked while most of them isn't. I used to have the Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray and it was the UK version. Never had a problem with it.
Keep writing and keep looking for work. At first you will NOT get paid for your work, no matter how much effort you put into it, but the experience will help you in the long run. If you see something that says, "Writers Wanted" check out the website to see if it's something you want to be a part of. If so, contact them with an audition piece. If they like your work, they are likely to contact you. It is possible to never hear from them again, but keep looking. A bit of luck goes a long way as well.
So far, I only watched Persona 4: The Animation and Psycho-Pass. Psycho-Pass is fantastic, loved it so much that I bought the Blu-Ray. I'm always in the lookout of good Anime and the one that caught my eye recently is Seins;Gate. I might watch that. I'm also watching Persona 4: The Golden Animation.
If it's for a bus ride to school, you can't go wrong with a Professor Layton game. Unless you are having trouble on a difficult puzzle, it's quick pick up and play would be perfect for a bus ride. Plus, if you get Miracle Mask (the one I have), you'll get access to 365 free puzzles to download.
How did you beat it? I'm at the end where the ghost is in the phone, and yet I've spent hours trying to get that fucking phone to ring.
You have to wait for the bell to ring, go through the "loop door", keep repeating that until the clock reads 0:00, then wait at the phone for a while until the baby laughs and then the phone will ring, R3 on it and the radio will say something, go back through the loop door and you are done.
Sadly, this didn't work for me. Just for you to know, your the third way I've seen to end P.T.
