Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
Yeah, an Uncharted movie should be easy. Those are just like interactive big summer action flicks anyway. They'd just have to be willing to hire the game writers to make it feel truly authentic. I've yet to see or read any of the Halo media outside of the games but it's nice to know the mini series was good. The Halo universe seems like one that's ripe for expanding upon. When it comes to game related media, the thing I'm personally most prone to buying are comic books. ^^'

Oh yeah! I forgot about the Animal Crossing anime. That one was really cute and they did a good job nailing the laid back feeling of the games. A shame they never brought it over to the US. Like Lupin, Layton is dripping with Western influence but it's funny you bring up Miyazaki in particular as the action sequence during the climax of Eternal Diva was a pretty clear nod to, or at least heavily inspired by the two rooftop scenes in Castle of Cagliostro. Team Layton must be big fans.

Speaking of which, did you know they played Cagliostro in theaters last month for two days? One of my dreams came true.

Are you excited for Pixar's new film Coco, then?

Thanks. I'd definitely prefer it on console. Besides vastly preferring playing on consoles, I also happen to have a comically weak integrated graphics card. I looked into it and it seems the Xbox version is superior to the PS2 (less buggy, less loading, better graphics) and runs from $17-$30 on eBay, so I'll probably grab that one after the holidays.

Hahaha! I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to make the reset switch out of reach to get people moving a bit. Since most of the games already have saves built in and/or don't feature true game overs that start you back at the beginning of the game, saving via the console shouldn't be required too often anyway.

Yeah, I have Eternal Diva. I skip most video game movies but it was only ten bucks on Amazon and had great reviews, so I picked it up and was pleasantly surprised. One of the biggest failings game movies have, whether it's from Hollywood or an anime studio, is the writing and tone are way off, but the Layton movie completely nails that aspect and is a lot like watching an extended cutscene from one of the games. It's my favorite game movie since Mortal Kombat (I know what I said). If you're ever craving more of the series and find it for a nice price, I'd say it's worth a watch. Had no idea there was a show in the works. I'll have to keep an eye on that!

The pacing in Grim Fandango was weird but the setting, world and characters were so good! It's one of those games that left me really sad in the end that I wouldn't be able to have further adventures in it. I've only ever heard great things about Psychonauts. I should really pick that up before the sequel hits. Brutal Legend seems pretty mixed, but if it has his trademark humor, then a bit of gameplay wonkiness might make that worth a play too.

I'd like to see that. It's too bad Nintendo Power isn't still around. They could have brought back the Top SNES releases section for just Star Fox 2 for one month.

I haven't used the rewind yet. I suppose I could have tried it that time I died in the Arena in Kirby Super Star, but honestly, its existence completely slipped my mind at the time. To access the menu during a game, you have to hit the reset switch on the console, so unless you play with the console beside you, it might be a hassle to use regularly. I remember Duke Nukem 3D on the 360 actually had a pretty cool rewind feature. It was the first time I'd ever experienced that mechanic and it worked well.

The characters and artwork of the Layton games are definitely charming. Combining that with a large assortment of cute and clever puzzles was a winning formula. You'll definitely have tons to keep you busy as there has to be over a thousand puzzles in the series by now (don't forget to download the free daily puzzles!). The later games also continued to add collectibles, side activities to solve and Last Specter even includes a full life-sim game that plays a good bit like Animal Crossing in the Layton universe. That might be right up your alley. ^^

They do have some neat stuff, though a lot of it seems to be on the tad expensive side. I was actually really interested in picking up Thimbleweed Park (your pal Surviving Devil turned me into a big Maniac Mansion fan after sending me a code for Day of the Tentacle ), which comes with an artbook and some other items. So I'll let you know the quality of that if I manage to get it. Money's going to be a bit tight with Black Friday and Christmas shopping coming up though.

I'm not crazy enough to do that either. I just happened to snag a pre-order when they went up. It was just some freak bit of luck. ^^'

I bought it so I could own Star Fox 2, but there are a lot of other great games on it that made it worth the price. The picture quality is also great and the system UI and games load up really quickly. Sorry you weren't able to get one at release. I wish you the best of luck in nabbing one during the restocks!

Getting really into the Layton games?

By the way, I was wondering if you had ever seen this EarthBound Handbook? [Link] I happened to see it when I got an email about that Undertale order the other day and thought you might find it interesting. I think it was a pretty neat idea!
