    Review of: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

    Media: Video game

    Systems: Nintendo DS

    Developer: Level-5/Nintendo

    Released: 2008 (Japan) / 2010 (North America)

    Denizens of the wiki, let me ask you this: when is the last time a video game made you cry? And by that, I mean not in the “tears of frustration and hatred because this level is impossible” way, but in the good way; the way that means that game really, truly moved you and made you feel something? Furthermore, has there ever been an occasion where a game achieved this feat and yet wasn’t a good game? I highly doubt it.

    The fact that I was literally, truly crying – and not just getting misty-eyed, mind you, I was pretty much sobbing – after playing the third entry of the increasingly excellent Pro…

    Review of: Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

    Media: Video game

    Systems: Nintendo DS

    Developer: Level-5 / Nintendo

    Released: 2007 (Japan) / 2009 (North America)

    Welcome, one and all, to issue six of “Stuff Sunshine Likes!” As you may recall, last week I reviewed the 2008 DS game Professor Layton and the Curious Village, the first entry in the now well-known Professor Layton series. I also promised that this week, I would be continuing my praise of the series by reviewing the next entry – Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box, which, sadly, I also recently finished playing through a second time (for the same reasons I replayed Curious Village… yes, I know, I’m a dork). Again, going “back in time” by replaying earlier games was a bit odd, but the fres…

    I am a dork. This is a fact. I am not unwilling to admit to it (constantly). But why is it I’ve recognized it on this particular occasion? Well… it’s because I actually just went back and replayed Professor Layton and the Curious Village, the first entry in the original Professor Layton trilogy. Why? Er… ‘cause I was facing puzzle withdrawal thanks to the still long-off release date of the new game (with an even longer wait once I beat that one, as game six hasn’t even seen a release in Japan yet, and the Layton games can sometimes take years before they’re localized!), I was feeling kin…

    Review of: Frankenstein

    Media: Play

    Directed by: Danny Boyle

    Adapted by: Nick Dear

    Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Jonny Lee Miller

    Run: February 22, 2011 – May 2, 2011 (Premiered on February 5, 2011)

    Welcome, all, to this very special fourth edition of “Stuff Sunshine Likes”! Today, not only am I (for once) not reviewing a video game, but I’m also reviewing a piece much darker, more twisted, and more unusual than what most would consider standard Sunshine fare. This piece is a play put on during early 2011 by the Royal National Theater in London, a piece adapted from a tale many of us have come to know very well… and yet very different than what the modern everyman has come to associate with it. The play is Frankenstein, and in spite of the title, I ca…

    Yup, I'm back. Again.

    First of all, let me sincerely apologize for my abruptly disappearing again. I did not think I'd be gone, let alone for so long, but different issues/committments/distractions kept piling up and keeping me from getting on the wiki. Unfortunately, both my schedule and my attention span can be relatively sporradic, so I can't honestly promise this won't happen again. However, I will be trying harder to get on more regularly, if only to keep up with what's going on around here. Based only on briefly checking my talk page before making this post, I know I missed a lot of admin-related posts, milestones, et cetera, and I'm very, very sorry for that. I'll try to be better, I swear!! (On that note, big, big thanks to Gideon f…
