SD Alternative

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Two cases in…

…to Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, and I have to say that this game is AWESOME. XD Apollo Justice is the first “Phoenix Wright” game where you don't play as Phoenix Wright. But Wright does show up, and he is sooooo cool in his new “alternative” profession. I love how he and Trucy (your new assistant) are off-beat but totally cool with it, like they fell off the straight-and-narrow path, but just picked themselves up and dusted themselves off. And I really like Trucy: she's so useful! A USEFUL ASSISTANT, FOR ONCE.

Oh! And I like the new guy! He looks like a little kid, but he's older than Wright was in the first three games. What I like is that he's totally a Wright fanboy, but still totally able to stand up to him. He's got spine. XD I even like the new prosecuting attorney, who, while not as awesome as Edgeworth (who could be?), is still pretty awesome. What I like is his style: he lets Apollo say what he wants, easy-going-like, but succinctly sums up the “relevant” facts for the judge after the flailing is over. (Also he is LITERALLY A ROCKSTAR — don’t ask me how that works, I am too busy being amused XD.)

Major logical inconsistencies continue from the first three games, but not to the point of interfering with the gameplay.

But I might as well mention them, while I have the window open. Spoilers!

First case: The victim died after being hit on the head with a “grape juice” bottle, a wound which bled heavily. So then, why wasn't the bottle broken?! I don't see an edged weapon, here.

Second case: The victim, thinking he'd strangled someone to death, arranged to dispose of the body…but the victim was a doctor? No matter how spooked he was, I have a hard time believing that A DOCTOR wouldn't be able to tell whether the person he thought he'd killed was still alive.

This journal has become like my outlet for recording my work and media conquests lately, sorry about that.
