Professor Layton gives a spoiler

In Professor Layton, when completing a puzzle, you can actually know whether you’re correct or not a moment before Layton or the boy says so. They flash closer to the screen three times, with “Correct” or “Incorrect” appearing the final time, but before that, they’ll either have a little grin or a little frown on their face, so that you know what’s coming.

I played through the entire game twice and never noticed this. My wife played for like ~20 minutes, and it’s one of the first comments she made.

I thought this was the most obvious thing in the world, but then I was playing the game with my girlfriend the other day and I’d comment “yes!” or “nooo!” just before the correct/incorrect came up, and she asked, “how’d you know??”

I guess it’s not common knowledge after all :lol

Nintendo DS will always remember your birthday

Nothing big or mind blowing, but it’s the only thing of interest I can think of right now:

The DS startup sound changes on your birthday.

That scared the shit out of me when it first happened with my now retired Phat. I turned it off and on again thinking there was something wrong and some minutes passed before I realized what was up, the poor thing was just trying to congratulate me.

Phoenix Wright went deep in the Miles Prower stuff

There are tons in the Phoenix Wright series:

Lotta Love 
Luke Atmey (Look at me)
Phoenix Wright (Thinks he’s right)
Wendy Oldbag (Windy Old bag)
Will Powers (Will Power)
Dustin Prince (Dust in prints)

There are many more that I can’t think of at the moment, but they’re fun. 

Animal Crossing had a secret inspiration?

I just posted this in the “Lego”-Thread, but I think it fits even better in this Thread:

“Animal Crossing” is a blatant rip-off of Lego’s “Fabuland”:


Cacildo´s note: Well, its obviously not a “blatant rip-off” but they do share some funny similarities.
