Miami Law, a Hudson game that'll actually come out here first.

Oh, it's CSI: Phoenix Wright.

...I will actually play that.  Cool.

I love me some point and click graphic adventures, but I'm getting tired of the "serious" ones, or the crime/detective ones. I want me some comedy ones like the mid 90's, dammit.


Also, this isn't anything like I'd think Ireland would put out at all, let alone for his first new game.

Not... quite what I was expecting, but it's a start.

I just hope he has something epic in the works.

I'll probably get it on general principle, because I've yet to play a bad Working Designs game.

Well that was sudden. I'm happy something is actually happening now. I liked working designs... had some of my favorite games.

Man, you must not have played like half their library, then.

I hear ya on that.  Two of the most recent comedic ones I can think of in the spirit of classic LucasArts are A Vampyre Story and So Blonde (was released in multiple languages, including English, in Europe but not released in the US).  WadJetEye's Emerald City Confidential looks like it'd be a fun one. 

Regardless, I like visual novels and hopefully Miami Law will be good. It appears to be one of those games where WD-style pop culture references would not be out of place.

Screen shots suggest there's more to this game than graphic / point-and-click adventure. Some driving, some shooting...could be very action-oriented. May not be in the realm of RPGFan coverage...

(or maybe I'm just looking for an excuse to not associate myself with Mr. Ireland).

Well, Dreamfall was a graphic adventure with action content.

I find the new Sam and Max games to be a blast too, but I've never played the original so I can't compare. They're certainly not serious, and are pretty decent games outside of the humor.

"Wizw Fwum Yoh Gwave!"

Talk about under the radar, I believe Miami Law just came out a day or two ago.  Anyone still give a flying toot about it?  Anyone even going to bother with it?  Everyone still spiting Vic Ireland?

Short of the epiphany of video games coming from Working Designs GaijinWorks, there isn't much Ireland can do to get on my good side.

Mine either.

I'm sure his game will be chock full of hilarious pop culture references to CSI and reality TV.

But in a game like Miami Law that takes place in modern-era Miami, that could actually work.  Still, I don't think this game can be found much in stores, so it may end up being the tree in the forest that no one hears.
