Game Review

"So, is it the best video game movie ever?" That was the question a friend posed after I returned from a screening of Ace Attorney, a film adaptation of Capcom's first Phoenix Wright game. It occurred to me that I hadn't even thought of Ace Attorney in that sense. Takeshi Miike's take on the quirky courtroom drama may be brimming with fan service nods to the source... Read Review

Ace Attorney Investigations 2 Features Logic Chess

  Capcom's Ace Attorney series are masterpieces of minimalism. They're based largely on static graphical images and lots of text. But somehow they manage to tell fantastic stories and create some of gaming's most beloved characters. Recent spin-off Ace Attorney Investigations, featuring everyone's favorite curmudgeon Miles Edgeworth, was no exception. So it shouldn't surprise fans that there's a sequel inbound. Details after the jump. Read More

Kombo's Weekly Round-Up

The Halo: Reach review is here, and what more is there to say about this week in gaming news. It's the big story of the week - yes, even eclipsing the release of NHL 11, and according to Mike, who was lucky enough to review the game, it's a classic.  Be sure to check it out, and of course, be sure to catch up on all the news of the week. It was a doozy, from Nintendo's Wii follow-up console to Arkham City details to a really special design analysis of God of War II.  Check it out below in our weekly round-up (yes, I know, it's a day late. I was at a football game yesterday, and I apologize profusely!) Read More

Miles Edgeworth Returns in Ace Attorney Investigations 2

  Digital prosecutor Miles Edgeworth has become quite the popular character, arguably moreso than his defense attorney counterpart Phoenix Wright, to which he proved to be the primary rival in his series of games. Having now been spun off into his own Ace Attorney Investigations series of games, Edgeworth proved to be a capable enough protagonist to shine on his own, which makes it all the more sensical that Capcom would announce a sequel. Ace Attorney Investigations 2 (or Gyakuten Kenji 2 for you Japanese folk) was unveiled in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, and will feature the identical point-and-click gameplay of its predecessor, plus some new features, such a new "chess" mode. All this is great, but will the series remain out of the courtroom for the foreseeable future? Read More

R4: Nintendo Beats Aussie Dealer in Court; Capcom Distributor Backs Away from Edgeworth

February 2010 is proving itself to be a bad month for pirates, particularly in Australia. First, it was the 24-year old who was fined $1.5 million by Nintendo for uploading New Super Mario Bros. Wii prior to its release, and now the Australian distributor of R4 Chips must pay them $520,000 in damages. R4 mod chips allow users to not only play homebrew games on their Nintendo DS, but also pirate games as well. It is the latter purpose which has Nintendo taking action, with distributors using the former as the justification for their product. Read More

Media: Ace Attorney Investigations Launch Trailer, Surprise at NA Success, No Further Wii Plans

Some of you might have noticed that a new title in Capcom's celebrated Ace Attorney series was released on the Nintendo DS this week, as well as a new port on WiiWare. In all, it's a good week for seeking out the truth. And to kick things off, Capcom has released a launch trailer for the DS title, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, which mixes a different style of gameplay with the elements so many have come to know and love from the series: A neat trailer, though the back and forth between the Japanese dialogue and the English sound bytes is a tad jarring, to say nothing of simply weird. More wacky courtroom high jinks after the cut. Read More
