unij: YOU BET KID (savepointsavepointsavepoint)
Special announcement:

Everyone who owns a DS needs to go buy Ghost Trick.

I'm not even kidding, you guys. This game is amazing. [livejournal.com profile] ggmoonycrisco put it best in her post--which was the first I ever noticed the game, but I'm still going to reemphasize that this game is WORTH ATTENTION.

The game is superbly written, a mystery story with endless bits of intrigue and thickening plot. Even with a couple accidental mild spoilers, I was still gawking at the screen at a few plot turns--and laughing ridiculous hard at others. The characters themselves are perfect, too, and it becomes clear through them that this really is from the creators of the Ace Attorney games. Even the most generic background characters have memorable lines and stories to them.

The puzzles themselves can be really challenging, and there were a few moments I wanted to stab my DS through the screen for having to start over yet again, but they weren't to the point where I ever actually decided to consult an FAQ (I have consulted walkthroughs at least once for all the AA games, except Investigations.). It'll challenge you, but without being a dick about it.

And my god, the sprite animation is perfect. It's gorgeous. Every single movement is smooth, natural, and eye-catching, at it really works to the advantage of bringing you into the world's atmosphere.

On top of everything, do you know what Capcom decided would be the most epic way to advertise for this game? Advertising in webcomics.
