Review: Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

You got chocolate in my peanut butter! You got peanut butter in my chocolate!  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are great. Personally, my favorite part is the edge, as long as you still get a little bit of peanut butter along with it. It is ...

Layton series has sold over 15 million units

The Ballad of Sexy Layton (and Sexy Luke)

There isn't much to say about this that isn't better expressed through song, but there is one interesting piece of trivia to share. Sexy Luke is played by Capcom Fan Art legend and former Boondocks artist [name withheld per request]. That'...
