SO excited about Ace Attorney... I have a DS, and found the second Ace Attorney game for really cheap, but I could only ever find the first one for $25 at the cheapest. That's more than I wanted to spend, but at the same time I wanted to play through the first one before playing the one I own. Now, I can do that for a $10 download, and ohmygod I LOVE the game. It's pretty old-school and Japanese in its presentation, but it's done so well, and the writing is awesome. I'll take Ace Attorney over the CSI games any day. Now, I just have to find the rest of the games on the DS so I can catch up for when Apollo Justice comes out.
Has anyone heard anything new about Earthbound coming onto the Virtual Console? Last I read, the game was rated by the ESRB for release, and since then it's been quiet on all fronts. I missed out on it when it was originally on the SNES and I want to play it so badly, but buying an original copy now is like buying a brand new game for one of the newer consoles. Everyone wants $50 or more for it, so come on Nintendo, help a brother out!
The first Phoenix Write game is probably the best one, in my opinion, and the extra case they added for the DS release is actually my favorite part of the game. I do wonder how they're going to implement some of the extra features in that case on the Wii, though.
