n3m3sis42: ((PW) oh mai gah!)

I'm a little late on this post because I ended up having to work a bit later than expected last night.

On a somewhat related note, I received an e-mail from Capcom USA yesterday, telling me that the item I ordered is out of stock. The "item" in question, of course, is Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. I'm wondering if they mean "out of stock" as in "We don't have this until February 19th" or if they mean "Even though you pre-ordered, we don't have enough copies of the game to fulfill your order when February 19th rolls around". I guess finding out will be part of the adventure. At least I get a free keychain with my order. :-p

I never really noticed this, but almost all of my PW userpics have Edgeworth in them. Which is okay, except that it seems like I should have userpics with other characters for the cases that he's not even in. Which would be at least half of them. Oh well.

I found the "impostor" storyline SO AMUSING the first time I played case 3-3. I kept telling my husband about how absurd different parts of it were. I mean, Godot didn't even bother to show up to prosecute in the first trial for this case because he felt it was obvious that it wasn't really Phoenix. Yet everyone else assumed it was him (despite the weird accented, the corrugated cardboard fake attorney's badge, and the fact that he looks nothing like Phoenix), because he had spiky hair and a blue suit. Seriously, how awesome is that? Pretty darn awesome.

This case is also near and dear to my heart because the victim is a PROGRAMMER (like me). It's a good thing that these cases are set a few years in the future, because I assure you that nifty little monitors the size of a sunglasses lens are not standard issue for programmers in my timeline. Although it would be pretty neat if they were. I'll be sure to ask when I'll be getting mine when I go to the office on Monday. Not. I didn't notice until this playthrough that his name was a palindrome, but that's far from being the most obvious thing I've failed to notice when playing these games.

Another high point of this case for me was the amusement factor of Gumshoe's pathetic attempt at a Psyche-Lock. Poor guy. One little lock that was broken upon presenting one ridiculous piece of evidence. Heh.

I still don't think I'm a big fan of Godot, but I have to give him credit where credit is due. He was the only character who wasn't cowering under a desk during Don Tigre's testimony. Phoenix, on the other hand, was thinking things like, "Maybe I should've brought a diaper with me today..." and both he and the judge spent a lot of time allegedly looking for their pens.

I enjoyed the case. Armstrong is one of the ickiest characters ever. Bad fake French, disturbing pink costume, frighteningly musclebound forearms stuck on a chubby torso... coupled with the fact that he keeps referring to himself as a woman, he's just too, too much. And apparently, his food tastes nasty, too. All I can ever think of when I see the Tres Bien restaurant, though, is that fan drawing of Phoenix and Edgeworth in waitress outfits. You know the one I mean.

Haha, Gumshoe piddly little psyche lock was awesome XD. Especially since everyone else in this case has 3 locks and up, it was cute to see some people just can't keep secrets XD;;.

I got the out of stock email, too. If you ordered it early and are only getting the email now, it probably means we're about to have another fiasco on our hands! I don't mind if it takes me a while to get the game because I'll have plenty of people throwing the information at me that CR needs to update with, so I'll be too busy to play it myself for a while anyway... (same thing that happened with T&T XD;;). But it'll really suck if Capcom didn't learn anything from T&T's release and start that all over again.

Hehehe, I know. And it was so in character for Gumshoe. :D

I guess I'm glad I'm not the only one, except that sucks that they didn't learn their lesson. I vaguely remember that something similar happened with my copy of T&T, but I barely noticed because I had already played the Japanese version and was just ordering the US one to boost sales and to get the stupid plushie they gave away with it. :D

I obviously haven't played this one since I don't read Japanese and the original release didn't have the English language option. But after replaying all 3 games, I don't guess it will kill me to wait a little while to play the next one. The sooner I play it, the sooner I'll just have to go back to waiting until GS5 comes out, and who knows how long that will be. (Although I could always make a new mood icon theme in the meantime.)
