Pokémon Black and White have sold an exorbitant amount over their first two days of release in Japan — 2.63 million units, to be exact (via Kotaku). Before that, the games had already hit over 1 million pre-orders. And people said Japanese gaming was dead.

We all look forward to Pachter indulging us with his [...]
I for one am a huge fan of the Ace Attorney series, which puts a legal spin on a traditional graphic adventure game formula. It’s also incredibly fun to scream “OBJECTION!” into your DS’ microphone whenever you present evidence.
