BTW, did anyone here purchase Revenant Wings yet?

My brother gave it to me for Christmas, but I haven't tried it yet. Not a big fan of the FF Tatics style games, unfortunatly. :\

Revenant Wings isn't at all like Tactics. For one thing, Tactics is (IMO) more strategic and is turn based, while Revenant Wings is real-time. Tactics gives you a lot of control over your party and how to customize it; Revenant Wings lets you summon monsters (who you can unlock in a somewhat-predefined order) in addition to your static party members who don't really change other than acquiring fixed skills.

Revenant Wings isn't bad, and it's certainly better than Heroes of Mana, but it could be a lot better. It's nowhere near as rich a strategy game as any of the Warcraft games, PC vs. handheld limitations duly noted. It's probably the best strategy game on the DS right now, but unless you're dying to have a strategy game on your handheld, it's probably not worth the effort.

Oh man, I wish someone would have warned me that the Ace Attorney demo would have a massive cliffhanger. It sounded like it was the complete first case. Now I feel all ... unresolved. And it's still more than a month until I can find out what happens next.

Haha, it's really good.

Feb 19 ? Ok, I'll get an US copy.

(as for Doulifée I suppose >_>)

Wow, I'm going to have to rush to finish up Phoenix Wright T&T then! I'm still on the 2nd part of case 2.

(curse you Capcom for making these cases so in-depth and rewarding!)

Furthermore, FF3 is my favorite Final Fantasy. Awesome music. Great game. I'm glad they finally brought it stateside.

I second that for the European market. While I've found that there's a bit of a learning curve behind it, as well as pretty steep increases in monster levels in certain areas, it's a great game nonetheless.

Sure, it's not the best in the FF series by any means (I'll let 7 and 8 battle that one out) but it's still a solid game in its own respects. And after seeing the original Famicom box art, I'm glad they re-done that image with the traditional white FF background, á la the other games in the series since 7.

I thought having that caption on it wouldn't go down well, but anyway, text changed on it, a bit more "user-friendly".

A lot off-topic, but relevant none the less.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Whoever decided getting my mum Brain Training for Christmas is a right git. Because I can't get near the DS any more, she's hooked on the Sudoku on it :(

Ok, I have never played Phoenix Wright, and I am sure it could be fun. But can someone please explain to me how Phoenix Wright is a pwn game?

I hate useless, ultimately non-descriptive terms. With that said...

Think of Phoenix Wright as a tribute to all of the text-adventure games you've ever played. I would go so far as to say that it is functionally this generation's "Monkey Island". It is intelligent, makes you think, and manages to be absolutely hilarious while doing so. Admittedly, the first case of each game babies you, but by the time you reach the end of game 1 case 2, you'll be hooked (or you'll know that you won't like it, but that won't happen, right?)

Anyone who has played the first (or second game) and hasn't finished the third must do so _now_, by the way. 3-5 is an amazing way to end Phoenix's trilogy.

I own the first 2 games and I don't even own a DS (sadly) that's how awesome they are, and now I feel like playing Phoenix Wright...

Game 1, case 2 was my least favorite in the series thus far. Kinda traumatizing IMO (well not really, but you know what I mean), and the characters were just annoying.
