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

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more

Want to watch 35 minutes of gameplay from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

With gamescom now behind us, you'd figure that CD Projekt RED would keep a tight lid on all things related to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But apparently not, as it would seem. A week after the show, the developers decided to un...more

Check out new direct-feed Bloodborne gameplay

Last week, I got to go hands-on with Bloodborne. This visually evocative and bleak follow-up to Dark Souls II is a change of pace, but also something that feels and plays very much like the games of the past. While the change...more
