    We were hyped about Professor Layton 2 over a year ago, when we finished the first one we were dying for more. It's just taken them so bloody long to get around to releasing it that the hype's burnt out and been replaced with frustration. The American release was in Febuary 2008, that's over a year ago, the second title was already out in Japan then and now everyone's just fed up of waiting.

    You'll probably hear a bit more about it when it's actually out.

    I am eager to get it! But it did really take long. Japan has it's 4th game coming up. US is so far behind.

    It took what... 2 years for the Japanese version to get translated?
    They dropped the ball big time.
    Layton 1 was pretty popular when it was new, now you can't expect people to really give a shit, they've moved on.
    If 2 had been released soon after 1, I'd have been all over it, I had a blast with the first game. Now I don't care.

    Besides, I never really liked doing I HAFF TWELVE MATCHSTEEK problems while I was supposed to be chasing some mysterious kidnapper across moonlit streets. It was just silly.

    It took 16 years for them to bring FF3 to the states. Yet it still met some decent success. And if you want a sequel that took a while, how about Mother 3? It was released 12 years after Earthbound/Mother 2 in Japan.

    I never saw the appeal of Professor Layton. My dad likes it, but I'm just not a big fan of logic puzzles and stuff. I perfer beating the living shit out of hordes of mindless baddies and mindlessly grinding levels.

    I'm still trying to finish the first one. I'm more into action games myself, but I couldn't help fall in love with the incredible polish of this game. I picked it up again recently, and I'm about 40 puzzles in. I think I might actually see it through to the end this time. If so, I'll probably take a gander at this next one. But yeah, something like Scribblenauts is more up my ally, since there seems to be a mix of action and puzzle solving.

    This is for me the game I am looking forwarded to the most after scribblenauts by far, there isnt really much hype about it though since its been a long time coming and all information about it has been available for forever anyway, now all we can do is await its release then hopefully get a game which is as awesome as the first one. If it is even half as great i will be a happy DS owner.

    Forget the negativity from above, hell yeah I'm hyped about Layton 2!

    (and yes, I was there during those crap times when there wasn't any news about a 2nd release to the U.S.)

    Really looking forward to it. Lent the first one to my wife before I'd had chance to play it. If I give her the second one I might just get to play the first!!

    I've still yet to get into the first game, I try but I lose interest after several puzzles. Even my mum enjoys it more than me.

    I guess I'm more in a action mood nowadays, kinda burned out on these sort of games.

    I`m personally very hyped about this game. The first one was great! Great Puzzles, great music, great artstyle, great story...!!!!!

    I don`t know, why it is such a problem, that it took them so long to bring the game to the west... It`s not like the first one ended with a cliff-hanger or something...

    I`m just glad, that I get to play it, because the first one was so amazingly great!

    Haha, that's exactly the same with me. Gave my mum the DS for an hour and didn't hear from her the entire time, except to ask me about a puzzle. But I find it frustrating when you get stuck, and there's no real reward when you pass a puzzle... Except more puzzles. Perhaps some softcore nudity would make it better? MILFs and the Curious Village?

    Yea i was super hyped after the first one came and i finished that one, but like many people here, its just taking so dam long to release the 2nd one! But when you look at it from a dev's point of view, especially for this game, that they would have to find many many more puzzles as not to re use old ones or boring ones, so yea i can wait, but atleast i take comfort knowing its gnna be released this year

    Sadly, I am stupid and I hate using brain power when playing games. Though the story for Layton was pretty cool from what I heard. And the puzzles are actually not bad (I only played a few). Not really hyped, but still glad it will be coming out in the US. We need more of these and less shovelware crap.

    Offtopic: TheDestroyer, wheres the Boom Head Shot? I liked it lol.

    Edit: LOL. You can chnage back to your new avatr. Was just curious.
