Lifesigns: Hospital Affairs

Doing for medical drama what Ace Attorney did for legal procedurals, Lifesigns is an underappreciated gem in the Nintendo DS library that combines visual novel dialogue sequences with challenging virtual medical procedures for an altogether unique experience. Also known as Lifesigns: Surgical Unit in North America, and Resident Doctor Tendo 2 in Japan.

But the fact that I didn’t get the “best” endings to each chapter throughout very much made me think of a now-famous video clip from popular Irish comedian Dara O’Briain, which you may have seen do … Continue reading From the Archives: You Must Be This Awesome to Succeed
From the Archives: Hospital Affairs - The Nintendo DS might not be the first place you’d think to look for some quality visual novels, but in actual fact Nintendo’s diminuitive and immensely popular handheld has played host to a number of interesting titles over the years. Besides the well-known Ace Attorney series, there’s Kotaro Uchikoshi’s Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, the Hotel Dusk series… and … Continue reading From the Archives: Hospital Affairs
