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 Finished

Title: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Series Title: Ace Attorney
System: Nintendo Switch

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney coverDate Started: 5/6/19
Date Finished: 5/26/19

Well I have a new fandom.  I am ready to drop SO much money on this.  I just bought two manga volumes and I’m already looking for an Edgeworth mug.  Of course I intend to review.  I’ll probably do it when I’ve played them all.  I’m already backlogged with reviews (who’s surprised…), so I’ll probably be finished by the time I’d even get to this one.

Title: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All
Series Title: Ace Attorney
System: Nintendo Switch

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All coverDate Started: 5/27/19
Date Finished: 6/3/19

Phoenix has to contend with a prosecutor even more cut throat than Edgeworth: Franziska von Karma, the daughter of Manfred von Karma, who was Edgeworth’s mentor.

Franziska von Karma from Phoenix Wright

You’d all probably laugh uproariously at my attempt to do her with a German accent (she’s from Germany…at least in the game).  I feel like I sound more French lol.  What I love about this game is the (recurring) characters are anything but shallow.  You think Franziska is just out for perfection…which, yeah, she is, but you find out some interesting tidbits about her by the end.  I seriously can’t wait until I finish all the games, watch the anime, and read all the manga so I can dive headfirst into the world of fanfiction.  I’m already sort of concocting one in my head as we speak ♥

What I’m Playing

Title: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations
Series Title: Ace Attorney
System: Nintendo Switch

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and TribulationsDate Started: 6/3/19

This game goes back in time to Mia Fey’s second trial experience.  Mia is not only Phoenix’s late boss (not a spoiler, since she’s dead in the first game), but she knew him even before he became a lawyer.  My AA friend informed me this is the game with the caffeine addict prosecutor.  I just hope Edgeworth makes an appearance ♥

I literally can’t deal with the internet right now

Title: Final Fantasy VI
Series Title: Final Fantasy
System: PlayStation 3 (Port)

Final Fantasy VI coverDate Started: 6/2/18

I finished up Vector and am currently in Thamasa ready to go check out the caverns in my search for the Espers.  This is such an interesting part of the game, because the Emperor and Kefka pull a Game of Thrones (Seasons 1-4) level maneuver with a false armistice.  It’s not something I ever realized playing the game as a child, but in jailing Kefka, Gestahl manages to convince the Returners he really wants peace but that the Espers went too far.  It’s…pretty gaslighting tbh because it’s Vector that initiated aggression in the first place.  Using Terra (AGAIN) to talk to them because she’s half-and-half is a cunning move on their part.  Only Gestahl and Kefka were even part of the plan since Leo was blindsided, which create yet another characters fans were clamoring to resurrect.  I would love to get back to my novelization of FFVI one day, especially now that I have read politically intriguing stories like ASOIAF.  It would be really fun to stretch my wings with those kinds of paradigms.

What I Played

  • Pic-a-Pix Deluxe – Great to play while I’m watching a Let’s Play right before bed.
  • Triple Triad – I got a chance to play a little more on the Final Fantasy Portal App.  I’m up to Normal difficulty now.

What I Watched

  • The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Olizandri)
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (Olizandri)

What I’m Watching

Title: Breath of the Wild
Series Title: The Legend of Zelda
Let’s Player: Olizandri

I just saw the explanation of what’s happened to turn everything into…well, the Wild, and I’m here for it.  This game is beautiful, and I thought it would be weird to watch an open world Zelda, but it really isn’t. Like Zelda already has an open world feel to it to begin with, so it’s not that big of a leap.  Granted I’ve only watched five videos out of over 120 so I don’t know if my opinion will change, but so far I’m loving this.  I do own it, but I haven’t had time to play it myself.  Not to mention I don’t think I’m not very good at these types of games, so an Olizandri Let’s Play it is!

I still haven’t had the chance to test out my streaming capabilities.  Hopefully, this weekend will prove lucrative.  Now I’m going to finish up a few things and then play more Phoenix Wright 🙂

  2. Justice for All is the single most inconsistent entry in the series. The final case was good, but everything leading up to it was either forgettable or memorable for the wrong reasons. Case 2-3 remains my least favorite episode in the entire series.

      • Yes, that’s the one. Cases are usually labeled that way by fans (it goes [game number]-[episode number]). There’s another episode in the fourth game that’s almost as bad, though Turnabout Big Top takes the cake in terms of sheer annoyance.
