    Well, I've almost finished the first episode in Jake Hunter, and for those looking for another Hotel Dusk or Phoenix Wright experience, think again. This game is a hodgepodge of bad localization, cheesy music, and crappy artwork. Oh, and it's boring too. I'll report back after more is complete, that is, if I can continue to wade through this crap.

    Well, I certainly don't hold PW in the Pantheon of gaming like some people do, but it is a solid, well-produced game. This isn't.

    Elite Beat Agents was fun...if you can stand the music. I honestly liked the second ouendan better though. >_>

    It really sucks? D: Maaan. And I was looking forward for that too.

    Not reported under released games quite yet. It was dumped about 2 hours ago (at least that's when I found it). And I hate to think someone doesn't try a game based on my review. That's a big responsibility that I take seriously. Having said that, since I take it seriously, I don't say anything about a game until I am sure about how I feel about it. And I am sure, Jake Hunter is shit. I also don't use bad language often either.

    On Elite Beat Agents (or Ouendan, which is basically a Japanese version), if you like the whole rythm-game genre, yes, it is very good. Not quite as good as the best, which I consider to be Daigasso Band Brothers, but it is in the ballpark. EBA has very creative graphics, great music, and the controls are spot-on. I would definitely recommend it. And if you like rythm games, you have to try Daigasso BB. It is different in several ways, but especially it's control system. EBA is all stylus-based controls, whereas DBB is virtually all control pad and buttons. There are several English patches that you can find here on gbatemp that make it even more fun. It even allows you to create your own recordings. Multiplay mode is fantastic!

    I can't wait for the Daigasso BB 2, which is due out later in the year. And the best news, it will also have an English release!

    The article I read didn't come right out and say it, but implied that it was a simultaneous release.

    Obviously it was dumped in the literal sense of the word. Thanks for helping others to steer clear of this. I agree with you on not holding PW in the pantheon of gaming, however that's not what this thread is about. Thanks again.
