I've been playing the Professor Layton series. I've finished the first trilogy, and quite enjoyed it, though I will go against what seems to be the general opinion, and say that I liked Pandora's Box more than Lost Future.
I'm playing Layton Brothers Mystery Room now - a IOS/Android game where you play as a new policewoman, Lucy, who has just been partnered with Inspector Alfendi Layton, the son of Hershel Layton. It plays more like a simplified Ace Attorney game; a murder is committed - Alfendi and Lucy investigate with the help of Alfendi's crime reconstruction before finally facing off with the murderer. The game is very forgiving, you can pick incorrect answers to questions, point out incorrect evidence, and aside from a brief chiding from Alfendi, there are no penalties. There are a total of nine cases, but I've just started on case five, and have less than five hours on my file. That said, the cases are getting more difficult, and the main story arc is just starting.
On the main arc:
Spoiler: (Highlight to read)
I'm not quite buying into Alfendi's dark side. It was quite effective, when it first happened in case two, but it's been mentioned a couple of times now that "dark" Alfendi may be dangerous but the fact "normal" Alfendi is obviously aware of his actions when he is in "dark" mode make me think doubt that "dark" Alfendi is actually a threat; I think that Alfendi wouldn't allow Lucy to work with him if he thought she was in any danger.
I hope there's an eventual explanation as to why "dark" Alfendi seems to be so much better at deducing the events at a crime scene, and the motivations of the culprits than "normal" Alfendi, but I have a feeling that if if it does come up, the explanation will simply be "Dark Alfendi is able to understand the mind of a criminal much more than normal Alfendi".
I'm guessing that girl in case four is going to make another appearance at some point later in the game. Not sure why she wanted the idol yet.
Once I've finished Layton Brothers, I will start with the prequel Layton trilogy.
