    Man, I'm far behind with the Layton games [​IMG] But I'm excited about this one too. Must finish the other ones first though...

    So looking forward to play this.

    I love how Level 5 is adding extras to their games. They are including WKC1 in WKC2 and now this.

    Nice, I absolutely loved the last three Layton games and I always immediately get addicted when I start playing.

    Hopefully thell release Layton V and LvsAA as well eventually!

    Finished all of the game and I hope they don't do badly with this one. The previous game wasn't as good as the others which was slightly disappointing.

    I liked the last one, hated the second one. I like how the third one explained about his past, why he has that enemy, and where he got his top hat [​IMG]

    Anyways, I'm going to head in town and pre-order this. Can't wait.

    I still have to get Unwound Future before I get this.

    Glad that they didn't take out London Life, though.

    I have a feeling I'll skip the main game entirely and just try the RPG. Layton has never been my cup of tea.

    Is the RPG included inside the game or is it another game that comes with the box?

    If NOE is planning on releasing a multi 5 version then they wouldn't have enough room for the RPG, supposedly.

    No, it's included in the game.

    It should be pretty awesome since it's developed by Brownie Brown.

    What are you talking about?

    The story, though founded on a ridiculously over the top premise, was much more exciting, believable and touching than that of Layton 2 (and probably of Layton 1.) The resolution was much more satisfying and the twists were nice. I don't recall any problem with the puzzles either.

    Was there some other problem?

    Probably the fact that the Layton series has the HIGHEST expectations for story on the DS (and probably 3DS) now. Nothing could top it, except for games that really were nothing but story (999) and people are now expecting a holy grail filled with the piss of fucking GOD.

    That's why I never take bias into opinion when I play a game now.

    Really? All of the games have ridiculous stories.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    That's not to say I didn't enjoy the stories completely (except for the second one. The eye searing flashy city and least believable resolution ruined it for me)

    Layton 3's story was my favourite. We were given flashback insight into what happened before the first game. The villains were excellent, and it made me feel for all of the characters. Especially Layton, who before now was technically a very flat character. I might have cried for him at the end even. The mystery was engaging, making me want to keep playing. Hell, parts of the story even made me feel pressured and panicked, even though you know that time can't run out, it feels like it can.

    The stories are fun, and exciting, mysterious, engaging, and sometimes touching. But they are like swiss cheese

    Bleh, prequels. Looking forward to the RPG mode though, should be interesting.
