Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is, unless Level-5 changes its mind, the last of this particular series; the Layton name will continue, but not in the same form or branding with everyone's favourite puzzle-solving, tea-drinking Archaeology Professor.

This Video Brings Back Festive Sega Memories of the '90s

When new games dominated letters to Santa

Right up to the Genesis / Mega Drive era

After the VGX shenanigans absorbed far too lengthy a period of our lives this weekend, perhaps a snappier, more to-the-point video is needed. This will work nicely, in that case, as it's a history of Sega's early days in just over a minute. While we've had plenty of opportunity to learn about Nintendo's...
