A weekly post updated every other Tuesday detailing my current gaming projects. I have an account at Grouvee, which is a site you can use to keep track of your backlog, so please feel free to friend me there!
What I Obtained
- Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Trilogy – $29.99 @ Nintendo eShop
What I’m Playing
Title: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Series Title: Ace Attorney
System: Nintendo Switch
I’ve only played the prologue so far, but I love it. The humor in it is going to be fantastic.
“When something smells it’s usually the Butz.”
I’m…dying. For those of you who haven’t played Phoenix Wright (like me a few days ago), Butz is the last name of Phoenix’s best friend and first client Larry. While it’s wholly unrealistic for an out-of-the gate lawyer to be given a murder trial, you can just ignore that and enjoy the fun.
My friend has told me to prepare myself for Edgeworth, and I cannot wait. Apparently, his and Phoenix’s totally “not” gay subtext interactions is the foundation of the entire fandom XD
Title: Final Fantasy VI
Series Title: Final Fantasy
System: PlayStation 3 (Port)
Nope, didn’t get a chance to play this in the past two weeks. I’m going to have to go back to scheduling game play because that’s my life now.
What I Played
- Pic-a-Pix Deluxe – My plan was to play all the downloads for this and then start Phoenix Wright. Then I went to see how many there were, and there are all the downloads. I will be playing this game for the next ten years, so I need to put limitations on my playing time so I can do other things.
What I Watched
- The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (Olizandri)
- The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (Olizandri)
- The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (Olizandri)
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Olizandri)
Too many Let’s Plays to list them as I usually do, but as you can see my LOZ rewatch is going well. A Link to the Past went by way too quickly; it only took two days. I like Spirit Tracks a little better than Phantom Hourglass, though I still love them both. I like that ST gives Zelda much more agency, even though she’s technically a ghost most of the game. Being able to inhabit an invincible phantom body is a nice ghostly perk. I wasn’t bothered by the train aesthetic of the game either. I believe it’s the final game in the Child Timeline, occurring in a new version of Hyrule after the flood in Wind Waker. It would make sense that technology would eventually advance to steam, and it also makes sense that Ganon isn’t the antagonist since after WW, since he’s still sealed beneath the Great Sea along with old Hyrule.
What I’m Watching
Title: Skyward Sword
Series Title: The Legend of Zelda
Let’s Player: Olizandri
I couldn’t remember if it was this game of Twilight Princess with the time stones. Turns out it’s this one. To show the cyclical nature of things, as Spirit Tracks shows advanced technology at the end of a timeline, Skyward Sword reveals the ancients who lived on the surface had it, too. Where Link and Zelda dwell in a sort of medieval era above the clouds, the ground holds some fascinating finds with electrical devices before the coming of Demise. I do have to say Ghirahim is the epitome of a particular trope that’s been around for a while.
I need to bring back Final Fantasy Friday as in I play Final Fantasy on Friday. Someone make me do this.
