So I really have no reason not to buy a 3DS now. And I still need to finish Unwound Future.

I love me some Layton.

Kind of want to go back and finish the puzzles in Unwound Future, but the "Hey, go back and do everything before the end" is at a very awkward point in the story.

Also, that story is a total bummer.

Layton and Luke look like dolls. I don't like the new graphic style at all.

I don't mind the polygonal models, they stick very close to the original art. Always loved the additional minigames in your menu (except for the tea brewing, maybe) so happy to see at least 3 of those this time around. Definitely getting this game.

"Fuck Ryan Davis" for being so dismissive of the 2nd and 3rd Portishead albums.

Vinny's Brobbit impersonation during the tuftie part was something special.

Can someone please explain to me the "Sharing the Burden" puzzle? Given the rules of the game, couldn't the luggage have the following weights:

F=10, E=9, D=8, C=7, B=5, A=1

That would mean: A+B+C+D+E+F=40,

while all the pieces has different weights and weigh 10 or less, as described by the rules.

But if FCA / EDB is the solution stated by the game, porter 1 would carry 18 while porter 2 carries 22, which he can't. Maybe I'm just missing something ( - probably!). It's getting late here.

God, all this just makes me want a Dark Cloud 3 sooooo bad! And if they do make one, they better have Luke and Layton costumes in it.

I find myself liking the 3d versions of these guys less than the 2d ones. Lots of awkward idle animations...

Regardless of how you feel about the character models, the way they overlay the painterly-styled background textures over the 3D environment model is really stunning in person. Absolutely gorgeous game, one of my favorites for the 3DS so far.

For one I'm not sure where you're getting those weights from. Secondly, for all we know they might include fractions as well. The point is, we don't know what the weight of the luggage is other than that it's sorted by weight and that there's no suitcase that weighs more than 10 pounds.
