I like to collect stuff from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, so you’ll probably see me around a lot in those parts of the site!

While I don't collect anything from it, I’m also a huge fan of Love Live! and SIF. I’m always down for talking about it though!
PS. If your best girl isn’t Nozomi, you’re wrong.

I also enjoy helping with managing the database doing whatever I can.

I like chatting with people, so go ahead and send me a message!

neutralparadox (1 måned siden) #29651964HELLO! It's been quite a while, how's it going? I'm so sorry for never answering you, I've just been too busy nowadays and this site is such a mess now that I'm getting a headache just logging in. I mean, of course you need to update a website sometimes to make it more modern, but in this case they're basically ruining everything that made it practical instead >_>
I'm just over here trying to survive school, practicing to get my drivers license, and just trying to live healthy but even just doing that is exhausting since it always being so dark outside makes you so tired :s Maybe Sweden isn't the right country for me to live in haha
I'm even too tired to really play video games, but I did play the new Danganronpa game and mostly just thought that it was weird... but what Danganronpa game isn't. :p
How is your life? Anything fun happening recently? ^^

Heeey girl!!

It's so good to be hearing from you! Seriously made my day! oh believe me I know how busy life can be, so I appreciate even more whenever people take some time off to talk to me but I'm in no way mad if you can't do it ^-^/ but I really am happy that you remembered me hahaha! <3

Oh gosh, I’m so sorry to be hearing about all those things annoying you and making you feel down/sick ;;; And I’m even more sorry because I can’t really relate, to be completely honest I like the v4 update LOL and my physical AND mental powers are at their peak under gray skies. XD So I’m sorry for not really being able to give you advice but it seems like you’re taking care of yourself already and I’m glad! You’re so smart and organized and responsible; no way in hell will you let anything keep you down! \\\(۶•̀ᴗ•́)۶////

Oh girl about driver’s licenses and Danganronpa. Lmao can’t believe you mention two things that are so relevant to me right now!

I’m the same as you, trying to survive until February when there’s a break of university classes at least, will still need to write a long ass essay that I still haven’t decided what it should be about and it’s totally time right now to be discussing it with the teachers so I’m just a tad panicky lmao, so there’s that!

Anyway, I should still be able to be more chill with my new job then – started this month in a laser tag- & escape room facility! I'm literally playing Zero Escape irl and get paid for it, what a dream!

Next to my essay and job I want to get my driver’s license in February too, already registered in schools! Buuut I think I’m several years older than you, haha, just never got around to do it! How are you keeping up? Is it fun for you? :3 Always exciting and terrifying to be hearing someone’s fresh experiences on a thing you can’t escape doing yourself soon as well, pahaha!

So Feb is pretty full but when essay/driving lessons are over I want to up ballet from once to twice a week because we're starting en pointe and WOW MY FEET ARE NOT READY, and I don't see how they ever would be if I continue this weak af training lmfao!

Next thing is drama/acting class -did this all throughout school but had to drop for Uni and missed it ever since! ;;- but I don’t know yet if I can make it a Uni project so that time wouldn’t be ‘’’’’wasted’’’’’ (it’s a hobby so you can’t really say that, but an extra advantage at your Uni career is always useful!) which wouldn’t start before October and no I do not plan that far ahead into a year that hasn’t even started haha, so I may or may not start on my own earlier and then just see about doing it in Uni when it’s time. Oh and I've applied for a beta tester job for a browser game; I don't really expect to get it though so this doesn't count pahaha.

Still I think overall I’m looking at a pretty busy 2018! As always all this is limiting my time and motivation for video games a lot, but it’s such a coincidence that you’re contacting me again right now because I was on a hiatus with AAI2 literally the entire time we didn’t talk up until a few days before you wrote to me. You know me, I don’t make ANY progress, still in the 4th case! But in the meantime I’ve played PLvsPW and oooh my that is a gorgeous game, loved it to bits. Have you made progress on the Layton series and played the crossover by now as well?

Lastly… Danganronpa is on my backlog for 1,5 years now and knowing myself and the games I put before it (AAI2, Zero Escape 3 (I started at least!!!! lol), Layton’s Mystery Journey for which I wished for Christmas, and two short indie games) it won’t be before another half a year at least. WELL that’s not very “relevant to me” right now is it?! xD But you mentioning it sorta reminded me that I’m making more progress on games now than in the entire time we didn’t talk, and I’m still not really making any at all LOL. Someday!

Merry Christmas, my dear! And probably Happy New Year already as well! I really hope things will improve for you very soon, that you’ll be able to spend some nice and relaxing days and get to be very lucky with all your plans! <3 It’s good to be talking to you again!

neutralparadox (9 måneder siden) #19808409View spoilerHide spoilerHeyyy, I'm just going to send those gifs right back your way, haha. Surprise, I'm not dead!
You absolutely don't have to explain yourself, I understand completely! I'm pretty busy with stuff now myself, and haven't had the energy at all to even log into MFC, I meant to write back weeks ago but things have always gotten in the way :<<
You certainly sound like you have a busy life too though lol. It's been a while, but how are things now and is uni still killing you?
Nothing exciting going on in my life except a ton of stress, but I managed to get through the last Zero Escape game at least and... well. Don't know if you've played ZE (and if you haven't, I recommend them!) but these games are even worse than AA when it comes to the writers trying and failing miserably do outdo themselves by raising the stakes. The first game had a fantastic twist at the end, the second tried to outdo that by having a million twists that just seemed unbelievable and the third game... yeah, I don't even know where to begin. It's more about the journey than the destination when it comes to Zero Escape lol
Oh, then I understand! I was getting worried there, omg. :s
I could probably never live my life like that, I would only get completely restless by the waiting and feel like going for a run :p I only have a 15 minute bus ride each way though.
Haven't you played anything else for a year...???? You know, I love AA and would love to have enough games for a year, but... a year? Oh sweet jesus D:
With AA I took a pretty long break before starting AJ, and that was probably a good idea because the trilogy ended in such a good way. If I had gone on to AJ at once, I probably would have been completely disappointed with the whole series for continuing when it ended so perfectly. Not to say that I'm not glad it's still around, I think I prefer post-trilogy in general because of the new characters, but still.
I understand where you come from, people in general seem to agree that DD is complete crap and I actually agree with pretty much all arguments why, but it's still my favorite game because it got me caring for the characters that much. So when Dhurke has the same effect on pretty much everyone, I don't have much to object to because I'm completely the same lol
And hey, sorry for taking so long myself!! :< You definitely deserve better too! <3 And Happy Easter!

I've also run out of all my "I'm late" jokes // can't top the ones I did sooo, sorry, for my lamest entry yet lmao

Sorry to hear you've been busy/stressed 2 months ago but surely things haven't changed that much ;^; Is everything okay (now)?
Ah yep yep, this semester is actually worse than ever haha here we go again with excuses, my schedule this time is 9 shorter essays, 3 longer ones, and 6 presentations (orally + written); only 1 exam though so at least things shouldn't stack up until last minute this time! I'm still in the middle of everything (ACTUALLY VERY MUCH BEHIND) though so they probably will after all haha. But, this is just my lazy butt talking - I actually LOVE Uni, truly love my subjects; I just hate deadlines, pressure, bad grades for something that was a lot of work, etc., but it's definitely not like I don't appreciate being able to study what I love and to love what I study :')

ooooh my God yes I've indeed played ZE1 and ZE2 is on the backlog. Let's see my schedule... it's behind AAI2 where I'm half through, a CiNG game that I assume will be pretty short, and AAvsPL. If Lady Layton came out by then, it's got priority because boyy I'm excited for that game. Doesn't sound like that much but knowing me that's probably a year from now or so HAHA /shots. Anyway, I really liked ZE1 too! It's one of the few series of that pretty unique genre of story-heavy puzzle games I stumbled upon after I finished Another Code, which is still my favorite game of all time (other series were other CiNG games like Hotel Dusk, or Professor Layton, Ace Attorney). I highly recommend that one to you now, haha; I'm sure it won't affect you that hard because it would no longer be the first game of this kinda genre for you like it was for me (and I was only 15, two things that made it a totally unique experience for me at that time), but for me it still has one of the most clever story- or character writings, details, and ways of creating ambience. Basically (in both games, as it got a sequel), looots of people are dead and yet all the characters you learn about tried their hardest to be good. Oh yeah and it's not a fantasy story so there's no demon possession or anything, just clever writing that made a tragic story!
Anyway back ZE lol, yeah the 2nd and 3rd game are certainly something I want to take my time for because of the gazillion endings, so that'll probably be a while still but I definitely plan on playing them. Sad to hear they get worse! >.> Looking forward to talk shit about them to you when I finally get what you mean ahaha!

Yup and I'm still far from done haha. Like I mentioned, I'm half through AAI2 / just before finishing up the 3rd case, which I'm purposely procrastinating because I know it'll be sooo much dialogue lol. Argh, idk, kinda not feeling the game so far. It's so slow and I feel like everyone is the dumbest version of themselves ever. I'm incredibly thankful for the fan translation, but wow, the literal from japanese makes me cringe every now and then. Sebastian is my bby boy and all buuut eh... I'll finish it though! Haven't played in over a month and won't for another because of Uni and I think that is exactly the half break I need.

neutralparadox (1 år siden) #17697480View spoilerHide spoilerOh wow, here we finally go. I feel a bit ashamed of myself for being so late hah :s
I think for me MFC is the only site I'm on where you can customize your profile this way, and even then I don't do it often because I'm shit at coming up with a good and creative design. I guess once every few months or so is enough for me when I get tired of the old one, haha. :p
Oh wow... 5 hour train ride? Is that even humanly possible? Yeah, I can definitely see why you don't like to play on PC now, it sounds like a huge inconvenience in general >_> If I was in the same position I would probably just endure the lag too. Especially if it's to play AAI2, since it's of the highest quality. Have you got any further into the game since? :>
Remember Rise from the ashes? In my opinion that case still has both the best and absolutely scariest villain in the entire franchise. It got to me so much that I was really nervous every time I met him, and when I finally took him down I was so relieved and satisfied for the sake of all these characters involved in his "evil schemes". And this guy was the local goddamn chief of police. It's not like he ruled a country or something.
A game's writing doesn't get any better if you try to go higher every time, in fact in many instances less is more. And this is probably my biggest disappointment with Spirit of Justice, because you really don't need to suddenly make Apollo the son of former royalty who grew up in another country we've never heard of before and then make him take down Mrs. Evil Disney Queen who's so evil for the sake of being evil in order to save a whole country while being at the risk of dying at all times. This game is just bad fanfiction, and one admittedly good twist in the final case doesn't really change that. I miss the good old days where you were a lawyer doing lawyer things, and the scariest thing was the local chief of police who ruined the lives of two women you've never met before.
If I'm going to be completely honest I feel the same about Dual Destinies too, but I also feel that it didn't end up that being that bad in the end, and in that game I actually gave a shit about the involved characters where in SoJ I just couldn't care less. It would probably have been easier if I liked these new characters, but their sob stories felt so forced that I mostly just rolled my eyes. Except for Armie of course, my princess
Uh, rant over?
But now I'm curious if you've changed your opinion on how sad the story made you, considering what happens to Dhurke and all.
I know I'm going to be chased with a pitchfork for this but... Dhurke isn't that great of a character. I find it hard to like characters who are nothing but complete tools to make you feel emotional about the story. That's the reason they made him likeable while not giving him many flaws to his character... buuuut each to their own.
And there we go back to shitting on Maya again. What did she ever do to you? ;_; But I agree with your reasons regardless.
The first part of the final case was a bit off, I was really disappointed that they tried to copy 2-4 in such a shitty and out of character way. Why would Phoenix take things on alone again when the point of the end of Justice for All was the complete opposite?
I guess it only exists for 1. Warming people up to Dhurke before murdering him and 2. Bringing Kurain back for fanservice. At least we got the best SoJ character (Armie <3333) from it.
We really need a female prosecutor though, I don't understand why the prosecutors office has to be such a sausage fest. A real one, not the bad evil queen one. And then we'll have her go up against Athena as the defense attorney and Trucy as the assistant, while Ema is the detective forensics expert. Did I really say that too much fanservice is bad?
That's a really nice collection! :> I especially like the tote bag and the plushes.
I don't really feel pressured to do anything, you don't have to worry about making me feel that way at all! I just got a reminder that I really liked playing these games a long time ago and thought it would be fun to check out some more now that you mentioned it ^^ Sadly I didn't have time to actually get around to play one though, but when I do I'll keep you updated! :p


obviously I mean bitch in a loving friendship way sorry I just have shit humor ilu

So yeah! I've really done it this time and I'm so incredibly sorry, especially after you stressed out because you were late with your reply, well this is certainly the sign that you do not need to do that haha, I feel even worse being so late with replies when the person I talk to does their best to get back to me asap and I just... can't. Problem was, the two weeks after you wrote, were the last two weeks of the Uni semester / before the exams, and I had to do three oral presentations that were a real pain in the ass because of the groups I had to work with or the teacher that didn't let me pass even though I did the most work because of a trivial thing and UGGH it's so frustrating to even talk about that even now, then there were three weeks of exams even though I only took 4 but 3 of those were super important (1 is from the subject I was kind of "sponsored" to do because I'm not supposed to be able to get into it and I technically don't have to be good in it but I have all these eyes on me; both the ones that helped me achieve this and the ones who didn't want me to, and I feel super pressured and like I absolutely can't fail, and as for the other 2 exams that were part of my other subject, 1 already counts as a high percentage for my final grade of that subject and the other one I failed last year and had to repeat it and there's only 3 chances, and I'm really unsure about all 3 but ironically the only one I already have results of is the super unimportant 4th exam lol), and the first 1-2 weeks of holidays I was super busy with socializing, wow I'm exhausted haha. Doesn't help that I'll be touring with my ballet perfomance and visit my friend at the other end of the country this month too so I can't even promise that I'll be faster to response now ;;;;; I'm really sorry things are so busy right now I certainly hate it too lmao. BUT, what about you? Anything exciting happening recently? =))

Ah but it's 5 hours for both ways, one way is 2.5 hours, ye? I'm sorry if I've phrased that confusingly ;; And it's not all train ride too, in fact it's bus to the train station -> 1st train -> change trains mid-way -> subway to the Uni, plus all the walking and waiting. I'm only actually riding the train for like 70-80 minutes and that still sounds like a lot but really, if you're used to it it really doesn't feel like it. That's probably why I don't even bother bringing my consoles or headphones with me anymore haha!

NO, IN FACT I DIDN'T ;A; I can't believe it myself but I neither made (much) progress on AAI2 nor SOJ DLCs. Emphasize on "much" because I've played both a little but certainly not enough to be worth talking about ;;;;; With that I do believe my holidays will help me get my shit together and progress because I don't have any money left for the clubs for March so the nights will belong to my lawyer friends lmao. Hope to give you updates soon!

I lost it at Evil Disney Queen. Really. Because, SO MUCH YES.
I agree wholeheartedly. Admittedly, I think the most intimidating villain for me was Kristoph and the one I hated the most Dahlia - in a good, I-want-to-bring-her-down-and-see-her-suffer way, not the she's-terribly-written-and-that's-sad-to-see-way, but that's nitpicking rn since I totally get your point. Can't agree more, it made me realize how much I loved the first games for their simplicity and uniqueness. Also, I suppose it doesn't help that I played nothing but AA since the first game until now in this ridiculously slow pace of mine - meaning I haven't played anything else myself since?? a year?? more??, and as much as I love the series which is the only reason I could even do that, I'm pretty sure it took some of the immersion ww. Though I'm pretty sure I would think the same about DD/SOJ, I'd just like them a little more probably, if they weren't in direct comparison to their prequels and I'd have had a break from the gameplay and characters to enjoy it more to be returning to them. But yeah, need to emphasize here that I too think both of these games have these issues but SOJ is WAY worse.

I agree Dhurke isn't a great character.
Nah but really, I totally see your point and I agree that he was written to be liked and cried over and I didn't expect him to live at any point - I didn't call the plottwist at all and it really got me, but that's probably because I already felt like a smartass for expecting him to die in some way (in court/revolution outside/taking a bullet for Apollo/someone etc), so I felt like I was one step ahead of the game until the plottwist revealed that they were yet another step ahead of me. But anyway back to Dhurke's character, yes he was written to be loved *fast* lol, but in all honesty, that simply worked for me? Dads are always welcome and still a character way too rarely presented in entertainment media. I enjoyed every second of dialogue with him, so those... 2 hours maybe? of that were enough to get me attached, despite expecting him to die, and also to still get surprised and caught off-guard to add emotion and shock to what I was expecting from the start made the moment more memorable to me. That sudden realization and shiver down my spine... I can only name so many moments in AA where I felt that, not even in every game, but that moment in SOJ at least had that. At least for me. But I agree, it was a shit case/game nonetheless lol.

Ye I take back about half of my rage after learning the background story ofc haha so please know I'm back to my calm professional critical opinion LOLOLOLOL as to why she's a bad character pwahaha.
And Pearl, my beautiful daughter baby princess *A* Really she CAN'T get more precious than with these art skills, I just love her so much owo. I liked Armie too though, I just sadly was completely spoilered about her and I think I would've enjoyed the surprise of her appearance when the dialogues were setting her player up to believe she's a young adult boy more but still, the ending to her story was so adorable and bittersweet!

Oh my God, those 2 cases in JfA where it's Mia vs Dahlia (at least that's what they felt like lol)? Loved them, totally because they were just two incredibly intelligent ladies in a battle of wits. I would love to experience that again. I'd love to see Athena against Franziska (seriously where is the princess) since they both lose their temper so easily, it'd be hilarious especially with Simon and Edgeworth at their sides aka the supposedly calm and collected adults that are nothing but afraid of their little girls' rage at one point. But yes for Trucy and Ema, more focus on the girls in general! It really surprises me how much I like almost every major female character in AA so there's never enough of that! :>

Thank you! owo And oki, yes please do let me know <3

That's it from me for now, once I've made progress on any of the games I'll just let you know unless you've already replied before then and as I know you that'll probably be the case lol. That's why I want to apologize again for taking so long! You deserve better orz ;;

Aargharrghh that is why I almost didn't want to tell you, so that you don't feel pressured to reply! ;; It's really okay, chill and take all the time you want/need! <3 but yes please do that I look forward to it

just a small heads-up that I'm finished with Turnabout Revolution in more than one way because I thought it was pretty shit so that you don't try to put too much effort in going around spoilers in your reply! Not meaning to pressure you to reply to me -soon or at all-, I just really appreciate people holding back spoilers for me so I felt like telling you that there's no need ^^ Also no I'm not over Dhurke and I won't ever be. /shots

Aw, I would have loved to read that article :/ I'll admit that it probably wouldn't have brought out the happy Christmas spirit though lol

I've... never realized how bad that sounds put that way. Like I'd hate him lmao.
Anyway, Happy New year! Hope it'll ge a good one to you! >w<

I was actually even planning on writing a blog for the whole Merry DL-6mas deal (because you know, today being the day T Goodbyes is happening) but decided that my personal favorite AA case would be too specific orz but I'm all the happier now! <3

It was a nice evening, yes, thank you!! I wish you all the same. ♥

neutralparadox (1 år siden) #16908219View spoilerHide spoilerAww thank you!! It was definitely time for a change. I gotta say that yours always looks good as well! I love all the colors everywhere ^^
It's funny though because on my old computer (when it was still new) Skyrim had better FPS than The Walking Dead, it felt really silly. (And some other games with crap quality couldn't even run.) But yeah, I've pretty much changed from PC to PlayStation since, so I only play games that I already have on the computer.
Congratz on getting it to work! Man, you must really hate PC though if you're willing to withstand the lag on the phone just to avoid it lol
Already starting on Investigations 2 when you're not done with SoJ though? I mean AAI2 is so much better, but still. I hope I'm not hyping it up too much that you're just going to be disappointed in the end D:
What I hate about SoJ (I'm just spewing shit about this game I've noticed, it's still a good game but I think it's definitely not the masterpiece many people see it as which just makes me frustrated) is that it has such a dark and depressing setting that any attempt at lighthearted stuff or jokes is just so out of place instead, which is not a good thing for Ace Attorney of all things. You could argue it for DD as well, except not really because what I mean here is that you have the risk of losing everything - be it losing your office or dying - in this game at all times, so for example that everyone being all happy at the end of the case without even thinking further about the situation with Tahrust (geez these names suck) is just so... off. Maybe you noticed that as well?
Apparently they created Khurain because Phoenix needed a new setting as he is too OP for the Japan/US court. Or because they want to make as dramatic games as possible, each one more over the top than the last, I don't know. Maya's placement really is weird though, she was just shoved in because she's popular and an iconic face.
My god, now you've just made me realize that SoJ is written like bad fanfiction. Uh, that's definitely a good way to describe my problems with it. I'm mostly thinking of the main storyline/Turnabout Revolution when I say that though, but I'm not going to talk about something you haven't finished :p
But yeah, SoJ might as well just have been a fanmade game with how everything is made - wow, Trucy is arrested, Gramarye plot is back and Apollo defends her?! Just what the fans wanted! Maya is back along with Phoenix? Just what the fans wanted! Blackquill and Athena at the same side in court? Just what the fans wanted!
Maybe I'm hypocritical though because I'm excusing the last point, because that part was really well made.
Someone else loved Turnabout Storyteller?? I'm in shock! :o I know it's not the most complicated of mysteries, but man what an entertaining and classic AA-like case. It's probably because it hits a lot of my good points though, like Blackquill and Athena being my two favorite AA characters and the rakugo theme is super interesting to me because of high quality anime, but what sets it apart from the other cases is that this one was actually fun in the way AA should be and this is the only case where Nahyuta isn't completely lifeless.
Was Athena really that much better than the rest of WAA though? I mean the whole grabbing part (which scared the shit out of me) happened for a reason. She was ready to give up at all times it felt like, and the whole thing felt like a Simon Blackquill: Ace Attorney case (which needs to be made I might add)
Even if I take breaks between games I really like PL because it's so peaceful and simple in a way, it's so nice to open it up and not having to think about much for a while. (Except when those awful "move x between all these blocks between point A and B piece of crap puzzles that make me want to throw my DS into the wall come up) I'm definitely making my way through this series! :D
One sentence: Capcom, where are my precious Franziska and Gumshoe? :( They haven't brought back the most important characters yet.
The fact that they're making merchandise for such a small game is amazing. You're making me curious about this large collection of yours though? :p
Both Mad Father and Ib are a bit hazy in my memories so they probably need to be replayed too though. All I can remember from Mad Father is a chainsaw.
Here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to pick a random one of these games, we'll see if I'm too much of a wimp to play them myself or if I watch a Let's Play, and then I'm going to tell you what I thought the next time I write. Sounds good? :>

Aw shucks, thanks! I know I change my profile way too often haha. To be honest I just think it's a lot of fun! I don't have many other websites that allow profile customization except for tumblr and the lists (not actual profile) of MyAnimeList, but somehow I think the total freedom of design and limitless possibilities make them less fun...? I don't know, I know I'm not creative or good with HTML codes so maybe that is why I'm annoyed super fast when working on those accounts and prefer to do it here haha.

Oh really? That is actually interesting and funny xD
Aaah, well, yes, I don't like to play on PC as much as on consoles, but more importantly, I just know that I won't play any games on PC for many reasons - not liking it as much but also my PC being unable to run most of them and also lack of time because I'm rarely home. My Uni is a 5 hours train ride away everyday plus the time of the actual classes lol and when I'm home, I try to not only game but also watch anime/other TV shows and have a social life and theoretically also study but I definitely never do that lol. So really it's be best thing I can do to just endure the lag so I can play in the train or class sometimes, it WILL be faster this way I'm sure, even if it'll still take ages. Speaking of which, I'm still on the first case LMAO; I must be playing in 10-minute-steps thanks to the lag and interruptions when someone wants to see my train ticket, I have to change the train, or exit the emulator to check my messages. But even now I kinda already feel like it's faster paced and better written than SoJ lmao, but I'll see!

I'm in the Final Trial Part 1 btw, currently in Rayfa's séance, not that it has anything to do with the topic at hand but I thought I'd keep you up-to-date www
YES, I definitely HAVE noticed and I don't like it either. Remember the good old times in the first game where the saddest and most horrible thing that could happen was that your childhood friend that inspired you to be a lawyer might be put into jail, and the prosecutor was mean because he was going against his foster son? Welcome to SoJ final case where literally everyone is going to DIE if you fail to protect your foster father who is also going to DIE and he's your foster father because he's partially why your real father DIED and the prosecutor is changing the law in the get-go and holds the real queen hostage and manipulates her children (and is also probably the real culprit but so was Manfred). Honestly the Defense Culpability Act was lame already in the first case because if Phoenix does it for a boy he's never met before then of course he and Apollo would do it for Maya/Dhurke respectively, but they still needed to push it in and make you lose your office in The Magical Turnabout to have something "as bad", even though you were already protecting someone close to you in that case, which, as I said, itself was the CLIMAX of the whole first game. Now it's just one subplot in a random case. This is also why I enjoyed Turnabout Storyteller so much, because there, finally again, the worst thing that could happen was for an innocent man to go to jail, which IS the whole point of a lawyer to prevent so really it's exciting and thrilling enough if written well?? A little extra drama is fine for the climax but wow, not like this. Though that's a complain I had with DD as well to be honest, but SoJ takes it a step higher lol.
I didn't mind the humor/light moments that much, because to be honest, the drama in this game is bad, and even worse written, so if they had tried anymore to make it into a sob story, I would have enjoyed it even less because I just can't be sad or emotional about most of the story.

Some random things:
- Dhurke is my husband in 10 years and I love him and I don't want him to die oh god please no let this pure cinnamon soul live don't take him away from me nooo
- I finally hate Maya with a passion again haha*
- I hate Ga'ran 's design, why must she show boobs to be intimidating, but I actually like her as a prosecutor, I def think she re-writing the law is ridiculous and over-the-top but still kinda funny. She's also an example for SoJ's ridiculously bad writing though; why has noone mentioned before the trial that she was a prosecutor? Dhurke could have mentioned it easily and logically so many times. Now we learn about her one second before we get started and Phoenix and Apollo are just like wah oh ok i guess.

* why I do that:
- ruining the 3rd case's ending like I've said before
- getting?? captured?? held hostage?? for Phoenix to have to defend a guilty client,,,, AGAIN???????? I had to STOP playing at this part and shit about her to a friend before I could continue. Damn she's dumb, useless, and the reason everything is shit ever. I hate her so much oh my actual God.
- Atishon (I hate these puns) kidnapping her also made no sense because I literally lol'd when they said he couldn't use Pearl because she's "too reasonable" and also "wouldn't help after what he did to her cousin". Yeah but... Maya would? Idk if the medium apparently has a choice here then it doesn't make sense to abduct EITHER of them. Maya's kidnapping is a plothole and that's really everything the final trial revolves (bc it's why Dhurke was caught with the corpse etc)? Or just maybe Maya would help him because SHE'S SHIT.
- it's Dhurke who she fucked over. That is especially bad.

Anyway btt ww
I actually felt like they created Khur'ain to focus on Maya's comeback, then tried to create a bigger story with it AND put it a lot of other stuff to balance it out, so that there was rarely any time left for her. I'm not complaing about that anymore though lol
Yes, thank you for understanding my rambling haha! I actually wanted to use the term "what the fans wanted" as well but tried to avoid it because I thought well to do what the fans want isn't a bad thing, and went with "what fans would write" instead, but I definitely meant it the way you interpreted it.

Yes I loved it for the very same reasons, except the Simon & Athena being favorite characters part because honestly they're not even among my favorites but I think that makes me liking Turnabout Storyteller this much even more interesting! And yeah I felt like Athena was stronger than the other lawyers so far, yes she needed support but if I remember correctly, much later/at way worse situations than the boys lol, plus she's younger and inexperienced, and Nahyuta was disrespecting her (ofc he insulted all the lawyers but with Phoenix and Apollo it was obvious he still respected them as lawyers or person he cares about, whereas with Athena it was the climax of their interactions for him to remember her name).
I'd buy that game

Yay you do that! <3
Yeah, it's one reason why I'm happy to be playing the Investigations games at this time haha! I hadn't even noticed Ema was taking Gumshoe's spot in AA 4 and 6 before I read that in a tumblr post, because she's so different, but I love her in her own way, but I want Gumshoe back, but I don't Ema to go in that case! ;; They could totally team up so that Gumshoe is another reason for her frustration though, it fits perfectly! And Ga'ran has actually helped me and my thirst for a new female prosecutor but at the same time she's making me realize how much I loved Franziska. ><"

Here ya go picture/1659652... ww (though it's not all, my stationary items and GKs are missing)
Aw well you don't NEED to play anything, just do whatever you want lol, I just thought you might like them but I don't want to pressure you, I'm sorry if I've made you feel like that, it wasn't what I intended ><"

OH I forgot: MERRY CHRISTMAS! And probably Happy New Year already too, haha! Hope you have some nice holidays! ^-^

neutralparadox (1 år siden) #16541989View spoilerHide spoilerHoping that you get a good computer too one day! I still remember clearly how angry I was... so far this one has only made Skyrim crash when I hadn't saved for a while so I guess it's going good!
Good work on the game so far! I relate though, case three was sooo slooooow. People praise it for the ending but they forget how painful it was to actually get to that part lol
Maya and uselessness... I gotta say though that she's doing nothing in this game. Ah, arrested again and being gone from most of the investigations? How surprising! At least she shouldn't have been on the cover, but they need the game to sell I suppose. It's only in the DLC that she actually feels like a regular character and not just a cameo.
To be honest, the setting of the game is one reason it's so low on my list. I'm not into religious themes either, and prefer when things are as realistic as possible (not just in AA, actually). Usually AA is good at toning the more spiritual stuff down though so I didn't overthink it at first, but then they just go full blast at throwing in as much Disney-like stuff as possible. It's kind of thrown in your face :/ The whole religion thing is also one reason why Nahyuta is the worst prosecutor
How could you guess which case is my favorite?! There's nothing that gives it away! :o To be fair though, it's not the only reason why it's my favorite
I don't know if it's too late now, but the DLC in SoJ takes place after the game, so same as DD DLC the circumstances of one character becomes weird if you think about it. But maybe you're already spoiled on that :p
I'm done with the first PL game! I really like it, but there's really nothing in the gameplay that changes throughout the whole game so at the end of it I was looking up solutions because I just wanted it to be over. I suppose it's something that you're supposed to play once in a while and not everything at once.
I'm not done with the whole series though, I'm actually also pretty slow but in a different way. I play through one game I like very fast, but then I take a break until the next game, or else I would go insane with the constant repetition. I did it with AA too and those are my favorite games!
I'm probably getting the second PL game soon though, gotta work towards PLvsAA ;D
I gotta say that I like the way the handle the characters in Investigations better than the main games. It could just be that the gameplay allows for better interactions though. For example Franziska was kind of meh in the main series but she's fantastic in Investigations!
Edgeworth was the same too, and even though AAI2 is fan translated it's just as perfect as the first game in that regard so look forward to that ^^
Oh man, I played Ib and Mad Father a loooong time ago, it's kind of nostalgic. But I haven't played the other ones, so I think I'm going to check them out! These kind of games are seriously the line on what is too spooky for me to play personally though, so I'm probably going to hesitate...
Also when people in all seriousness try to tell you what you're not allowed to ship because of x reason, and you're only allowed to ship it if you're using it as a coping method?!?! This world is mad, I tell ya. People should just mind their own business when it comes to things that are just supposed to be fun and have no impact on the world.

(yooo babe I LOVE your newly done profile!)

Thanks, me too. I couldn't even get games like Skyrim running on either of them haha, I remember the one time I installed Telltale's The Walking Dead which is neither a huge game nor one with astonishing graphics, and I had to play with a resolution quality so low I couldn't even read the text and even that had major lag in gameplay. But yeah, I don't like to play on PC that much anyway so it's actually not that bad. Speak of the devil though, since I didn't want to play on PC I managed to get the English patch of AAI2 running on my phone! There's additional lag to the dialogue's appearing that is already sooo slow in the original game, and it's driving me nuts, and I cannot play for more than an hour at once bc I get aggressive lol, but at least I AM playing almost every day in the train to Uni & back! I have more free time there than I have at home so I def think I'll be faster with it this way than when playing on PC, even when it's so annoying. I still think this is probably gonna be the game that will take me the longest to finish and that it'll be ages ahaha, but who cares, since there is no AAI3 or any game that has it required that I finish before I can start it, so no pressure! \o/

Oh God agreed with everything about Case 3, I ended up hating it so much lmao. True about the ending, once again the plottwist got me because I've been wondering about the motive the entire time and it actually made Phoenix look like the bad guy for a second - not really, because obviously he only did what is right and good and it's the Khura'in system that's the problem, of course, but it was still Phoenix that foiled the noble-meant plan of the Abott, and I wish he and Maya would have had a short moral dilemma about this but oh well (srsly though it didn't have to be a moral dilemma but they could have been a little more sad or shocked when the wife announced to go help the revolution, but Maya just mentions the fucking TV show and the mood is immediately lit up and everyone's happy and laughing? I know that was supposed to bring closure to the case and have the player go like "aw, good ol' Maya", but it ruined the entire ending for me lol). Still even though the ending was pretty neat overall it doesn't make up for the slow and boring case for me, but I guess I'm extra salty because it took me so long to finish bc of personal circumstances, so to be "still on THAT case" for such a long time probably made it seem slower and more annoying that it already truly is.
About Maya; yeah I guess whenever there's Khura'in/Kurain she just has to be there. Understandably, to be honest, but it feels to me like they created the entire Khura'inese universe JUST to make her comeback a big thing, because she as such a major character hasn't been in any game after the trilogy, unlike Edgeworth or even Pearl and Ema (and Franziska and Gumshoe in Investigations!), which is kinda ridiculous because even I would consider her significance level for the series to be higher than all of these except for Edgeworth. But then they tried to take the focus away from her again to give everyone some spotlight, including new characters, and now it's just weird, because the setting simply screams Maya but she's hardly there. I'm curious about the DLC though!
And another thing to SoJ in general... I've had the same issue with DD but that one at least brought a bunch of new things, like the 3D graphics and menu features and Athena/Widget, but SoJ especially feels more like slice-of-life/fan fiction/"OVA" (if it were anime) to me, in other words, more like "extras" that are "added" to a main story (that doesn't exist), because of popular demand, esp with the way they handled pairs (which I main in a platonic way): Phoenix and accused Maya in SoJ, Phoenix against Edgeworth in DD, Apollo and Trucy + Athena and Simon in SoJ, and one part of Apollo's tragic backstory in each. I don't really know how to explain this, but it feels to me like this is something fans would write themselves just because they want to see the characters together, not like the way AA 1 to 4 were written.
THAT however is exactly why I LOVED Turnabout Storyteller, too!! It felt so much more like an actual, AA-like case! Finally some actual battle against Nahyuta; previously I felt like he said one thing and Phoenix/Apollo immediately despaired (screen going black and saying "it's all over"). I think this case has even ranked her up in my favorite female characters ranking because she was just so much more badass than any of the boys so far haha.

(Damn I talked a lot about SoJ lmao)

Nah I haven't played the DLCs yet! Turnabout Storyteller was so short that before I could realize I was right in the middle of Revolution, and now I kinda wanna finish it before I start something new.
Oooh, well I'm happy to hear you're planning on continuing the series at least xD I guess playing through was easier for me because I was doing so while they released so I always had some months of forced break after finishing a game before the next one came out, so I could withstand the frustration from the puzzles bc I didn't want it to be over at all xD I am playing the same series of games until I'm done with all of them, but I suppose that's because I don't even play daily at all, so I'm not really annoyed of playing the same thing over and over again because I have enough breaks, I guess. oO

I loved Franziska on the main AA series already, but yes, it's just the same in AAI! I'm just happy to see more of her tbh because I really miss her in the main games haha (also, the same goes for Gumshoe. I miss him so I'm happy AAI exists).

Haha, I have a large collection of Ib that I see everyday so it's not nostalgic for me but I can see why it is for you! Still if you liked it I highly recommend to at least watch Let's Plays of the other games because they got great stories. Mad Fathter is actually my least favorite of all the ones I listed so I'm curious what you'd think of the others :D

Agreed! ;w;
