dear homework...

I'm taking a break from my weekend job, lesson plans, math homework, and chaotic living situation to bring you news-
I'm way too nerdy for my own good. I've been observing stores and ranking their value in the case of a zombie invasion/ end of world/ if i get bored enough to get 'accidentally locked in' to a store. It's getting weird. I also introduced myself to my students with several geeky remarks, including "Evee is my favorite Pokemon." I think they like me.
But I'm really not dead, just stuck between procrastinating and having a LOT of deadlines ALL THE TIME.
But I found time to buy Prof. Layton and get the game going. As a college kid who's in her senior year for education (hence all the little kid's work pages I'm grading) I find it funny to be playing as a Professor in a game.

The game is a very nice follow up to the original, I think.

The first game was hard enough to appreciate and yet not so tough to get me frustrated and give up. This one is the same- some puzzles are easy for me to figure out without help, sometimes I draw it out on the memo page, and sometimes i have to really think about it. That makes me happy, as an intense puzzle lover. I like that the plot is different and the connections between old game and new are present, and you sometimes get enough hints to work out small pieces of the plot as they are happening without giving away anything too much. The overall feeling is smooth and neatly put together, but i expect that from these games by now. If you want action and gun fights, look somewhere else. I hear Duke Nukem is making a serious comeback. Or Wolfenstien. Though the older version of Wolf will always have a place in my heart, Prof. Layton is a very solid and entertaining adventure/puzzle/mystery game that is suitable for many ages and worth the cost of the game. I would definitely recommend it to others, so thumbs up boys! Keep up the good....investigating...yeah.

Share us with others! Hooray sharing!
