Just got the last issue of Edgetm, and I thought this game deserved its own thread - even though it'll probably never reach our shores. Or the Great Detective Pikachu: Birth of a New Duo as it is known in Japan. The game is a spin-off in the Pokémon franchise, in which players work with a talking Pikachu to solve mysteries, and is being developed by Creatures inc - the guys behind the Earthbound and Pokémon Ranger series. The game follows a rather peculiar talking pikachu who, despite not being as powerful and nimble as other pikachu of his kind, is rather intelligent and claims to be a great detective. One day, Pikachu encounters a boy named Tim Goodman, who is able to understand what he is saying. Thus, the two begin working together to solve various mysteries revolving around Pokémon in the city. Meitantei Pikachu is an adventure game in which players control Tim Goodman as he works together with Detective Pikachu to solve various mysteries. This is accomplished by examining scenes, finding potential clues, and speaking with people and Pokémon to uncover new information. A lot like the investigative parts of the Ace Attorney series. The game was released on the Nintendo eShop on February 3, 2016 in Japan. Unfortunately there's no word of an overseas release as yet.

I couldn't find a topic on it but feel free to merge if it turns out there is one after all. No one else watching this? I'm really enjoying it. It's a TV show about a girls football team that's in a plane crash in the 90's and has to survive in the wilderness. The show alternates between then and now and it's about what happened in the time they spent in the wild and new eventus in the present. There's of Lord of the Flies stuff going on, with possibly worse (and supernatural?) things. It's currently sitting on a 100% critic rating on rotten tomatoes. It's better than I thought it would be after the first episode. I liked that but was afraid it wouldn't deliver a satisfying experience. It's actually a lot slower than I thought at first too, which is nice. The characters get time to develop and the mystery to build up. I'm not really convinced by the young/old actors, some of them don't match at all (especially Juliette Lewis and the girl who plays the young version of her character) but after a while you just accept it. I guess the best endorsement I can give is that I've been checking to see if a new episode is out frequently, despite having loads of other stuff on the go. The trailer is pretty spoiler safe, it's mostly stuff from the first episode.
