A friend of mine showed me this, and I nearly fell out of my computer chair because it was that awesome. First, watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES opening intro. And then watch the Phoenix Wright parody.

This, my friends, is genius.

Jake Hunter Game

If you guys ever thought about purchasing or renting Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles, please don’t.

Instead, I’d pay $10 more for Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past. You see, the first game came out a year ago, and it only had 3 of the 6 cases compared to the Japanese release of this popular adventure game series. I guess a bunch of fans sent Aksys a bunch of emails complaining about that, so Aksys decided to release the second game with the original six cases and the other bonuses that should have been on the first reincarnation of this game.

This game series is actually really popular in Japan, having started way back on the Famicon Disk System (Nintendo) called Tantei Jinguji Saburo. Until last year, I had never heard of this series, but I’m glad I did and am glad I got the expanded DS game. 😀 Personally, I like the game, despite how linear the game is! It’s no Phoenix Wright, but I find this game to have its own charm and intrigue. Then again, I’ve always focused more on the plot and the characters of the games more than anything else, and this game certainly has its plot with murder cases. But like I said at the beginning — don’t bother with the first one. Just go for the second game that has all the stuff from the first game plus more!

Jelly Beans

I really liked “A Boy and His Blob” back in the NES (even though I completely sucked at it), and it looks like it’s getting a remake on the Wii! The hand-drawn graphics look great on the Wii.

Anyway, if you’re not familiar with it, it’s about.. a boy and his blob. It’s a puzzle-solving game where you can feed jelly beans to your blob, and it will transform into various objects that let you progress farther into the game. Example: feed it a licorice jelly bean and he’ll transform into a ladder. Hopefully this game doesn’t get TOO dumbed down for the “casual” audience, but I also hope it won’t be as hard as the original.. T_T

Oh, you Chinese people…

Saw this on Tomato’s blog (the guy who translated MOTHER 3):
Chrono Trigger — ported for the NES. I particularly like the gameplay at 5:20.

Reminds me of the FF7 NES port from a while ago…

P.S. I am Chinese and therefore the title is not racist. 🙂
