    I've been searching for AGES for another Visual Novel/Story based game to play.
    For example games like: Hotel Dusk, Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright.
    Anyone know any other good ones to play?

    I have played the following:
    The entire Professor Layton series so far
    All Phoenix Wright Games
    Hotel Dusk
    Last window
    999
    Ghost Trick
    Another Code
    Again
    Time Hollow

    I derped... forgot these:
    1) Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (SMT:DS 2 already released in Japan, US/EUR probably coming next year)
    2) Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

    EDIT: the two aren't connected. Just treat Shin Megami Tensei like Final Fantasy (it's like a trademark :lol: ) although Strange Journey is part of the main series (4th installation), while Devil Survivor is one of the bunch of spin-offs.

    I've played a bit of Devil Survivor but never finished it.
    Never heard of Strange Journey, I'll be sure to check that out too. Thanks.

    I'd like to bring up Lux Pain. If you enjoy VN's, you'll enjoy LuxPain.

    Edit
    Wait, VNDS? Does that play all Visual Novel Games? Or do they have to be specifically converted?

    It plays specifically converted Visual Novels. I don't know if there's a guide on how to convert them or not. There aren't that many pre-converted, but there are some good ones.

    I wonder how hard it is to convert -there are a few VN's I'd LOVE to have on the go. There's not that many available, but the list is -snip-

    Well, you should also try Little Charo if you're into visual novels...

    http://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/609572-eigo-de-tabisuru-little-charo

    It may look childish, but it's quite good. And don't worry about the Japanese at the beginning, you'll be surprised 95% of the dialogue is English. (now you'll just have to figure out which command is which as those are still Japanese, but it didn't stop me from finishing it).

    Out of those, I would suggest:
    Red Shift
    Saya no Uta
    The World to Reverse -hallucinate-
    True Rememberance
    Tsukihime

    I haven't yet read any of the others, as my roommates decided they wanted a few more games to play on my R4 as well before they got their own Micro SD cards to use.

    Edit) I checked through that Wiki and -snip- explains how to do it. It looks difficult, as you have to convert every graphic, script, and sound.
    Edit2) I snipped the URL up there since it's the same wiki that hosts the completed projects. To find this crap, just google it. It really isn't that hard to find.

    The lack of Jake Hunter : Memories of the Past saddens me.
    You should like it if you like detective stories.

    It's too bad Akai Chō will never get an international release.

    somewhere
    Just gotta say, if you get vnds, you gotta try saya no uta!
    There's not much in the way of choices, but it does have 2 completely different endings and is a great read.
    It's pretty intense and more in the genre of horror.
    Definitely not the run of the mill visual novel.
