The end is here :(

Hello, Laytonites. I know I hardly post here, but I do read all of your fics and whatnot. :)

So, the final game of the series... well, the last game that will be made, anyway... came out in the US earlier this week. I've been playing and am about half-way through. Love the story so far. I can't wait to see what the twist in this tale is and can only hope it doesn't make me cry, like the end of Unwound Future did.

Who else has been playing, and what do you think? I also saw some rumors online that a second movie may be made. Not the same as the games, but any port in a storm, right?


Oh, and I seriously need to get/make a duck mask for my Layton doll after seeing that scene. :D

Current Mood: nerdy

I haven't played it yet but I want to... though I don't want to as well because then there'll be no more T-T

I know what you mean. I've been trying to take my time so I don't finish it too quickly.


ETA: It probably won't do any good, but I've contacted Tokyopop to ask if there is any possibility of the manga being translated and published in English. I know that they have published some in German, so I figured that was perhaps a place to start. It isn't the same as the games, but I'd buy the manga and/or novels.

Me and my sis only just watched movie about a month ago... We were waiting for the best time to do so and we practially fangirl squealed for the whole hour and a half. Even though it was brilliant we both said it was like we were waiting for the video to fade out and a puzzle to pop up on the ds screens we weren't even holding. Nothing will really compare to the games.

I did the same thing when I watched the movie.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they will continue to have games, just with other characters taking the main role... like Luke investigating things from the US. I'd totally hate to say good-bye to this world for good.

I know with all it's strange machines and retro odness. I don't want to see it go... but then I don't want to lose any of the characters either T-T

Since we got it earlier in Europe, I've already completed it.

THAT scene cracked me up; in fact, I did a save there just so I could preserve it forever.

Also, it's Layton. Keep some tears in reserve!

Ah!! I should have done that. Well, I'll probably play it again, so I'll have to save at that spot, too. :)

Oh, dear. I'll get the tissues ready.

Holy macadamias, Batman! That ending was NUTS!! He is... And she did...

Must not spoil. But wow! Questions answered, but several more left in the air.

I'm slowly making my way through Azran as well. Bittersweet it is, because I don't want it to end. But it's a Layton game, so I gotta do it regardless... BUT at least there is still PL vs AA to look forward to! :D

Yes, looking forward to that game. :)

Also, love your icon! It's how I'd imagine Layton would look if he was stuck at a computer, rather than running around solving puzzles. :D

Haha thank you! I made it especially for blog use XD Here, you can have my laughing one, too LOL.

I beat the game a few days after it came out in the US. I really enjoyed it--and as per usual with PL, it totally made me cry.

Aurora's journey with the group really makes me wish they had done more with Flora in the original trilogy.

I'd say more, but don't want to end up spoilering for anyone @-@

I didn't actually cry, but I did become more than a little melancholy over it.

I would have loved to have seen more of Flora. It's a shame they didn't do more with her.

We need a spot to be able to talk about various parts without worrying about spoiling for anyone. I know I always hate it when I'm spoiled, so I certainly don't want to do that to anyone else, but I'm bursting to talk about it. And none of my friends play the games, which makes things even worse!

I'd suggest maybe making another post with just a giant (SPOILER DISCUSSION) for everyone who's beaten it to chat.
