Trauma Center 2 DS Sequel in the Works for August

Atlus really was serious when they revealed to investors that they'll be investing more in their successful Persona and Trauma Centre series. Even though Trauma Center: New Blood was just released for the Wii just a few months ago in Japan, it already looks as if the next title in the series is ready for release and it's for the DS.

Disgaea: The Demon Prince and Crimson Moon, Hitting the DS in Spring

Looks like more and more games are going multi-platform and that's probably a good thing since it means you won't have to own multiple consoles. This time, Nippon Ichi's popular Disgaea is given the new subtitle "Makai no Oushi to Akatsuki" as it prepares to hit the DS in Japan some time this Spring. Not really surprised when I heard the...

I've stopped playing PC games since buying myself a DS and Wii because there hasn't been any titles that's caught my attention on it lately. However, here's one I'm looking forward to playing.

Gegege no Kitaro The Great Youkai Battle, A New Platformer in the Works

After all that exercise on the Wii, it looks like Kitaro is ready for another portable adventure and this time it's going to be "Gegege no Kitaro: Youkai Daigekisen" on the DS. It looks and sounds awfully similar to the last platformer on the GBA by Konami. It's been four years since I wrote the scripted guide for that game. Time passes...


A Fun Set of Petit Evangelion Mini Games for the DS

The DS is finally getting an Evangelion game but unlike the PSP, it's not going to be based on the philosophical TV show but on the fun deformed Petit Eva series instead. Named simply as "Puchi Eva" (it's probably a working name), the gameplay is as simple as how the graphics look. All you have to do is touch or circle anything that might be...


Final Fantasy IV, Bundle of Mini Games and Theatre Mode Included

I really enjoyed Final Fantasy III's remake into 3D. People didn't like it's shallow story but I think it was good enough considering how it was keeping close to the original game. Now Final Fantasy IV DS is looking even better. Not only is the story being fleshed out with scenarios that never made it to the original but it's also adding in...

Finally! A date for Dragon Quest Swords! It's not an exact date but it's still something! According to S-E's press releases on Gamespress.com, it will be due for Europe sometime next Spring 2008 and they already have the website up and running. For some reason, the press release says "Spring" but the website says "Summer". I hope its...


An Appeal to Professor Layton Guide Writers, Take Them Down

That's what the official site's put up a notice about. Level 5 doesn't want players using guides like mine, where you can just look up the answers, when playing their "Professor Layton" series of puzzle games. They want players themselves to figure them out so that they can get a taste of how fun it is to solve puzzles and so, appeals to...
