greatest witness of all time

I'm not quite done with Dual Destinies, the new Phoenix Wright game (I finished the main story, but there's a bonus case I haven't finished yet), but I'm going to go ahead and call it amazing. I enjoyed Apollo's game but never felt the same love for it that I did for the first three. This one is right up there with those, though. It's awesome to get to play as Phoenix again, and I really liked Athena, the new lawyer character. Fairly early in the game, something happens to keep Apollo from using his (horrible) power, which made me laugh really hard because I know that was pretty universally loathed. (You do end up using it a couple of times, but it's not too bad.) Athena's power is way less annoying. But most importantly: EDGEWORTH. It's not an Ace Attorney game without Edgeworth, so writers, thank you thank you thank you for bringing him back.

(It's hard to tell in the screencap above, but yes, that guy is on a Segway. The whole scene was amazing. I only wish the picture included the epic BGM.)

cut for more screencaps - no spoilers )

In other news, I'm having more frustrations with Amazon.jp and their nonsensical shipping policies. However, I am going to be strong and not cancel my order of Love Stage Blu-rays to put individual discs in separate manga orders, because the price on them has gone up ¥500 (each) since I placed the original orders. I'll have to wait until January to get my BRs, but since I just watched the show, I'll live. I'm more annoyed with myself for putting the Yokozawa movie in that order (especially since it WAS in a different order). That one has only gone up ¥300, so I may cancel just that. Which would also require canceling my current manga order and placing it again. Ugh, Amazon, why are you such a pain??

On a more positive note, I've been reading about how amazing merino wool is, so I ordered an Ibex undershirt to wear while walking/running in the evening, since it's getting quite cool here. It really is amazingly warm for being so thin, and did not smell at all after I was done with my workout. I went ahead and ordered a Buff (because I noticed my neck got cold yesterday) and a pair of Darn Tough socks to try those out as well. (If I like those, I have my eye on a heavier pair for skiing this winter.) I would also like to get a pair of leggings, but I'm trying to decide if I want the heavier weight or the same as my shirt. (Also, should I get a heavier weight shirt?) Also also, it's October 1st and I now have $14.39 left for clothes in my October budget.

I did a mini-purge this weekend, of bags and electronics. Found an old cell phone (and MD player, haha) to be recycled, and decided to sell my old iPod. It took some hunting to find a cord that would charge it, but I finally got it powered up and it works just fine. I was expecting it to be full of stuff that was 10 years old--I forgot I still used it for a while after I got my first iPhone. I think I'm going to miss the click wheel (something soothing about navigating that way), but I don't see myself using it anymore, so off to Gazelle it goes. Also considered selling my shuffle (which I have pretty much stopped using since I started doing interval running, because I need my phone to keep track of the time), but it's so tiny it's not really taking up any space, and I would be lucky to get $10 for it, so I think I'll keep that for now. We'll see, I guess.

...I just checked for the heck of it, and there's a music player app (Twitunes!) that has click wheel navigation. I'm actually considering downloading it. Not sure it would be the same without the physical buttons. Agh, I just read an article mourning the loss of the click wheel. No! I hadn't used this device in years! No regrets!!

Yesterday, I was watching TV with Wednesday sleeping on my lap, when Choco snuck into the room and started sniffing Wednesday's tail. Then, Choco took a tiny bite and came away with a mouthful of Wednesday fur. (Wednesday never noticed.)

Choco, what are you planning on doing with that fur.

re: is anything funnier than Fraziska whipping Edgeworth?

As it turns out, yes. Edgeworth and Franziska, arms crossed and frowning exactly the same way:



(If I weren't so lazy, I'd animate this, as it's even funnier when Edgeworth is tapping his finger and Franziska is gripping her arm.) I seriously watched this one repeating animation for like five minutes, laughing the whole time. I know they're not new animations, but seeing them together just made my day.

Also, their interactions were so adorably brother-sister it hurt. (Even despite Franziska accusing Edgeworth of MURDER. Have a little faith in your adopted brother, for crying out loud!) They call each other "Mei" and "Reiji"! Just... not enough awwwww in the world for these two.

SIX Edgeworths. DANCING.

Also, apparently [livejournal.com profile] kiyoshimitsu is helping fans import the DVD (since whatever vendors are selling it don't do overseas sales), which is awesome, but honestly I dunno if I really want to invest a hundred bucks, I mean, how much am I going to watch this? :/

Meanwhile, I'm close to finishing the second case in Gyakuten Kenji, and loving it so far. The characters are as fun as ever--is anything funnier than Fraziska whipping Edgeworth?--and (not that this will last, I'm sure...) I haven't yet gotten stuck and needed to consult a walkthrough. The "logic" system is interesting, if simplistic (some of them seem so obvious it takes a minute to realize that you even need to put them together); I like the idea of Edgeworth using logic to solve everything. I'm a little weirded out that I haven't set foot in a courtroom yet--I was really looking forward to Edgeworth actually WINNING a case for once. Maybe in the next case? I still haven't met the two new characters on the cover, either.

Why didn't anyone TELL me about Gyakuten Kenji?? I hate being out of the fandom loop. *sulk*

I would say, "This is why I need internet access at work," but, of course, that's exactly why I DON'T have internet access at work. *sulks more*

So, [livejournal.com profile] mangaroo and I made a deal: I tell her PW spoilers and she makes Phoenix and Miles Sims for me. But I'm not sure about the whole aspiration thing (where the choices are Wealth, Knowledge, Family, Popularity, Romance, or Pleasure), so I figured I would tell the story of the gayest lawyers who ever gayed lawed were, and then we could talk about the Sims thing.

Storytime! )

Hold it! Are you sure you want to be spoiled? )

I'm happy that I don't have to worry about spoilers anymore, but I'm sad that now I have to wait for the fifth game. T_T I guess I'll just have to drown myself in fanfic until it comes out.

Probably nobody cares about this, since most of the few people on my f-list who are into PW haven't started yet, but I want to write about it anyway, so.

I can't see how I have any hope of reviewing the massive pile of manga I brought back from Japan, so I will have to think of a different way of doing things. Tonight's experiment:
Random Scans of Stuff That Cracked Me Up )

One of these days I might actually finish my report on my Japan trip. (Be afraid. It's long! Very long!)
