Still a port though.

One thing regarding those Phoenix Wright ports I forgot to mention was they're actually remaking the graphics.Untitled

So while the new game will be a bit cheaper than DS versions and easier to get hold of, the graphics are as ugly as sin if you prefer the pixel art of the originals. And, OH!, that font - just like Final Fantasy Dimensions, the font makes it look like a flash game.

Nethertheless, I never got round to buying the DS games, and when I bought the first one on my iPod, I enjoyed it, so I may consider getting these ones too - it just depends on whether I would be happy to forego the original art style and buy it for less as a download.

So it's ugly if you have no taste in art? Good to know.

What about the PC master race? :P

That's cool, though - I haven't played much of Bastion yet but I absolutely love the art, and the way that the levels form up as you explore. The narration is a neat idea, too, although I can imagine it might start to grate if the narrator keeps repeating himself.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

And the pixel art of the originals were ugly as sin, where as this looks pretty good. I'll never understand how people can stand the blockyness of pixel art over something that actually looks clean and natural.

Anyway, the Kindle Fire 2 is definitely about to be announced. It's "sold out" on Amazon, and there's an Amazon event coming up really soon.

Also, looks like the iPad Mini is actually going to be called that, but I've read it might not be announced until October in order to not take away from the iPhone 5's spotlight. I'm reeeeally hoping for at least a 16GB model in the $249-299 range. I'm dying to upgrade from my iPad 1.

Hopefully it's as lame as it looks so I can just go ahead an get a Nexus 7 already.

Not too interested in the iPad Mini, but it'll be a nice option to have, in any case.

Edit: More evidence... http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/30/3280859/amazon-new-kindle-f...

I'm still not convinced the iPad Mini exists, but it would be nice if it came out in October so I could get the iPad 3 for $100 off, or maybe even more during Black Friday.

I don't know about that, since it's not like the iPad Mini will replace the iPad 3 in any way, shape, or form. It'll just be an alternative, so I wouldn't expect the usual discounts that appear whenever there's a newer model announced. Then again, I know nothing about how this stuff works, so feel free to ignore me.

You're doing it wrong. You're on a forum - everything you say is 100% correct and everybody has to agree!

:P

Oh, right. If you don't agree with me, Mickeymac, then your opinion is bad and you should feel bad.
p.s. wheels, have you received your copy of DToL yet? I'm thinking we should revive the Kickstarter thread!

Bastion is utterly essential for anyone with an iPad. The perfect portable game.

Bastion, The World Ends With You, Horn. The iPad has had a hell of a couple of weeks for gaming.

No not yet, though I was hoping it might arrive today. I think they're being posted from California and I'm in PA, so hopefully I'll get it tomorrow or Saturday. I was going to post about it in that thread as soon as I got it! :P

how about you?

Does anybody have any suggestions on where to get a Matte screen protector for the iPad? I've been looking around and haven't had much luck.

Is the free prologue available on the iPad, too?

Good news for Phoenix Wright fans - Ace Attorney, Justice for All, and Trials and Tribulations are coming to iOS in Autumn.

Furthermore, you'll be able to download an app to group all the games together into one executable (although, presumably, not the Phoenix Wright game that is currently available).

[Destructoid]

Great, and right after I bought Phoenix Wright used, too. Oh well, at least now I can get the other two cheap. How does Apollo Justice compare to the first three? I played a demo of that and got bored very quickly...

Just get some matte varnish (Tamiya makes some good stuff) and spray it on your screen. That should do it, and Tamiya's TS-80 is a really good matte - it will stop pretty much all reflections!

That sounds permanent, though, and I don't have steady hands.

EDIT: I didn't see this when I last looked: http://www.amazon.com/Protector-Anti-Glare-Generation-Verizon...

Might try that, assuming the one who's selling it for $6 is trustworthy...

EDIT Again: Now I need recommendations on Styli. I thought they were all the same, but they're not, and some are very expensive...
