This is exactly the type of title that belongs on the DS. I really love the art style.

For those of you who have never heard of the game, it centers around the Los Angeles suburbs in 1979. Your character is Kyle Hyde, a former detective who is looking for his missing friend. Your search takes you to the mysterious Hotel Dusk. Rumors say the hotel contains a room that can grant wishes. You end up spending one night in the Hotel Dusk, surrounded by some very strange people who all seem to have something to hide.

This title should be arriving on US shores in 2007.

I've had my eye on this one for a bit now because of the cool art style.   Hopefully the game itself is as interesting as it looks.

What I like about this title, beyond the atmosphere, graphics, storyline, and the fact that it is the same people who made Trace Memory, is that it uses the DS in a different way. You hold the system sideways, Brain Age style. I don't enough developers are realizing the extra things they can do by changing the perspective on the sytem.

This one has been on my list for a while.  It dropped off the radar for a while there, and I'm glad the release date is finally coming up.  Let's hope it turns out to be good.

That looks hot if not confusing. Maybe Gellar can translate the japanese.

I liked Trace Memory.  It was short but very well done.

I know that some people did, and that's great.
For me, I listed it in the thread we had a while back called "The worst game you ever finished."
I wanted to like it, but ended up loathing the entire experience and kind of raced through the
last bit of it just so I could be finished with it. I respect that they tried to do some innovative
stuff, and I genuinely have high hopes for Hotel Dusk, but I'm hesitant to preorder it.

I enjoyed Trace Memory a lot, but I get why some people wouldn't.  I'm looking forward to Hotel Dusk.

I hope similar games are coming to the Wii, too.  It would be an ideal platform for the Adventure game resurgence that is surely on the horizon by now.  Please?

Hotel Dusk Comes out Next week. I have it on order from Best Buy with store credit and am very much looking forward to it.

The website for the game is pretty cool.

same for me - if people have good things to say about it, i'll probably get it, but trace memory, for me, was a matter of good individual ingredients / half-baked results (much like contact that way, actually)...
