  • Excerpt: There’s nothing quite like a good mystery. After all, who doesn’t like trying to put all the pieces together before the end? I guess we like to think we can outthink the best detectives of fiction. In some cases, it doesn’t take much. It’s all but given to us on a silver platter.

  • Excerpt: The first Professor Layton title came out of nowhere. When Professor Layton and the Curious Village was released no one really knew what to expect, and everyone was impressed with what Nintendo and Level 5 had created.
