Game Review

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask was my first extensive experience in the world of Professor Layton. After hearing nothing but good things about the series, I had to see what all the fuss was about. I went in with high expectations and was not disappointed. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask turned out to be a puzzle/adventure game full of charm that easily makes my 'best games... Read Review

Over 30 3DS titles demoed next month at Nintendo World 2011

    Ever since I saw the 3DS at E3 2010, I have been buzzing with anticipation for the handheld. Seriously, the device does exactly as it promises, which in itself is an amazing achievement. I'm so excited, that at the age of 23, I'm saving up my pocket change to have enough to buy the device at launch. I'll be lucky if I can afford a game as well. Unfortunately, while we still wait for a North American release date, the Japanese can look forward to a February 26 launch date. Even worse, Nintendo has this semi-annual event called Nintendo World, a Japan-only event where they show off the latest games and hardware. Rubbing salt in the wound, Nintendo is showing off over 30 brand new 3D titles! Sure, only 15 of them are actually playable, and the others are just demos, that's a ton of content to let people play for a fresh console. However, trust me, this thing is hot, and knowing that Nintendo fans in Japan will get to play with these games before we even get a release date is a major drag. Mostly for me. Looking over this list, I do have to say that Paper Mario is the title that most excites me, with the 3D version of Metal Gear Solid 3 and Nintendogs + cats not far off. Of course, the 3D version of Ocarina of Time could be a goodie too. There are so many awesome sounding games! And I can't be the only one to notice that Pokemon Black and White is coming out not long after the rumored March 3DS launch, so maybe there will be some 3DS support inside? And what 3DS games are you excited about? The full demo list is after the jump Read More


E3 2010 Media: Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle for the 3DS

The 3DS is surprising a lot of people on the show floor, but once people get past the 3D effects a few questions arise. Questions like, how will the disparity between the two screens affect games that relied on them -- like Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle. The new Professor Layton may not know what a plural is (is it a mask of one single miracle?), but it knows how to handle the new 3DS. Read More


E3 2010: Everything There Is To Know About the Nintendo 3DS

It was announced before the show, but we still weren't really sure what to expect. By the time the Nintendo press conference was over and we got our hands on the device -- like everyone else -- we were blown away. The 3D really works and doesn't require glasses or any other kind of trick. On the right side of the unit is a "slider" which allows the player to control the intensity of the 3D. When the slider is turned all the way down the game downgrades to 2D, slide it back up and it reverts to 3D. Click the jump for a bullet pointed run down on all of the 3DS information. Read More


Fifth Professor Layton Announced

Level 5 announced today the name and details of the fifth Professor Layton game for the DS. It will be a direct sequel to the fourth game in its trilogy of prequels. Upon this week's Japanese release of the fourth Layton game – The Specter's (or Devil's depending on the translation) Flute, Level 5 announced that the next game will be called The Miracle Mask and will release in Japan Fall 2010. It seems that Level 5 has pulled a Star Wars on us with the continuity of the Layton games. Miracle Mask along with Specter's Flute takes place before the first game Curious Village in a planned trilogy of prequels about sidekick Luke Triton first becoming Hershel Layton's apprentice.
