Review: Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights

What sort of tomfoolery is this? A video game on a Nintendo handheld featuring a wise doctor and a young sidekick solving puzzles and unraveling a mystery that isn’t a Professor Layton title? Rubbish! A definite imitation of the sublime puzzle solving of the Professor Layton series, Konami’s Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights distinguishes itself with a variety of gameplay methods, unique visuals, and a handful of interesting puzzles. Is there room in this world for two top hat wearing puzzle solvers with British accents? No. No there is not.


Yearly Roundup: 2011

As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!
