I hope you guys managed to pre-order Virtue's Last Reward on time to get that sweet watch, because that sh*t sold out fast. I had heard that Aksys offered a second batch of watches this week, but by the time I scoped out Amazon, they were once again gone. Well, horse puckies.

If you've somehow missed out on its DS predecessor, 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, Amazon is offering a reprint with brand new box art. The new cover features Zero's freakish mask in the background as June and Junpei reach out to one another. There's also a "Zero Escape" stamp in the upper-right corner to highlight its association with Virtue's Last Reward.

It's the same game that most of us already played, but if you haven't yet and show even the slightest interest in VLR, check out how it all began. 999 is one of the most mind-blowing tales in videogame history, and I would hate if anyone had the story spoiled because they played the games out of order.

"999" With New Box Art Ships Today! [Aksys Games]

999: The Novel is a Choose Your Own Adventure book

What really is a game, anyway? This is a question that bothers a lot of insecure people with insignificant things to argue about. Actually, when 999 came out on iOS in Japan we learned it had removed the "escape the room" puz...more

999 on iOS lacks any actual gameplay

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors was without question my favorite game of 2010. The sequel, Virtue's Last Reward, was pretty great as well, but the original was simply without equal. I recommend it to anyone I can, h...more

Review: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

A few years ago, I discovered escape-the-room Flash games and was hooked instantly. Shorter and more compact than your typical point-and-click adventure, escape-the-room games such as Crimson Room are a great way to kill time...more

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors gets Flash demo

Back in July, we highlighted a new Chunsoft adventure game called 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors. It's the story of nine strangers who must escape a boat in nine hours before bombs in their stomachs explode. This i...more

I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing

I play videogames for many reasons. Sometimes, I play for the story -- the chance to visit new worlds and live out someone else's life. Other times, it's the sense of competition I find most alluring, or the chance to master ...more

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or late...more

Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style...more
