    Default Trace Memory (DS)

    Anyone else wanting to play this game?
    Its like a murder mystery where a girl goes to an island to find her missing father with her aunt or something and she dissapears too.
    It plays out like a point and click adventure game but you actualy control where you go by sliding the ds around to make her walk.
    It combines 3d environments with 2d stills and anime style (but not the overly happy school girl type) all in one.

    Reviews are mixed, but most agree the puzzles are so innovative that they cant even tell you what they are or else they will spoil the experience, but I hear they make use of all of the DS' features nicely.

    The game is said to take anywhere between 4-7 hours to beat, but it has replay value by allowing more of the story to be unfolded by a second preview.

    Its set to ship on the 26th, one day before lost in vlue and lunar. I know Ill be getting all 3.

    I'm looking forward to it. I plan on picking up both Trace Memory and Lost in blue next week. Then there's Castlevania, Phoenix Wright, and Trauma Center right around the corner as well. Stupid DS sucking up all of my money. >:0.

    I ordered Trace the same time i ordered Myst V. Right now is actually a really good time for fans of that style of play because we're getting Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophcey), Myst V and Trace Memory all within a few weeks of each other.

    Look's like i'll be picking up Lost in Blue at the same time. WHat can i say? The DS has some amazing titles coming and i plan on picking up everyone that Rabid's after.

    Oh and reviews don't mean shit to me i want to try it myself.

    Yes, I too plan on getting Trace Memory. I know that it hasn't gotten very good reviews, well half n half, but still am going to give it a try.
    I didn't reserve it, but will buy it as soon as I see it in stores.

    Are you sure it's the US and not a European import? It's been out there since June.

    Ok, well $29.99 is the actually price as far as i can tell. It's the standard price everywhere now. Besides a game with such low appeal to the mass market (let's face it adventure games aren't very popular expect amongst the guys like us) would scare off curious gamers at $39.99.

    Stores usualy pre-sell high and then lower the cost later because they can automatically charge your reditcard less, but they can't charge you more without your permission. So this way they're saved a lot of trouble.

    In Europe its got a different name - Another Code: Two Memories. Its been out for months. For some strange reason we got this months earlier but almost all other games months later. There's lots of titles out in America already that we dont get for another month or two.
    What's good about this game is that a lot of the puzzles can only be done with a DS so it makes good use of the system

    anyone get this game today?
    Im getting mine tomorrow, but I am excited after reading gamespots review. Basicaly the same as the others, a quality game with very inventive puzzles and great story/characters, but only 4-5 hours long.
    The play time does not discourage me, since Ico is my favorite game of all time short playtime does not put me off

    I just picked it up today, and I'm really digging it so far. The story's interesting enough to keep you going, and despite the fact that a couple of puzzle solutions are a little obscure, I'm having fun with it.
