Kyle Hyde – disgraced detective and shelf warmer

In August of 2009 my wife and I were looking for a puzzle game and purchased Hotel Dusk Room 215 for the DS.

It looked like an interesting story, with a mystery to solve and clues to follow.

She began playing through it, but it just wasn’t quick enough to keep us interested. To enjoy a game with a good story you have to actually get into the story, and at the time neither she or I had the time to do so.

I remember helping her through one part (of course I’m going to record the one time I helped her!), but other than that I didn’t get far either. I began a game but just didn’t follow through.

All this said, I haven’t traded in the game which means I hope one day to play it through … but with game time being something I don’t have a lot of these days, it may be a while.
