WRUP: Trials and Tribulations edition

As we said in our initial releases post this week, there's really only one game of importance releasing this week, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations. We know you're playing it, you know we'll be playing it (first thing's first: remove this ball and chain from our ankle), so why dance around the subject? Tell us how far you are, tell us how you're finding it or tell us how you plan on scraping together the dough to eventually get it.

If you're one of those freaks who are playing something else, let us know about that too!

No spoilers for anybody please...

Started playing it two days ago and I just stepped into the courtroom for the first time in the third case late last night.

Anyway, just like the reviews say, it's still much of the same good stuff you can expect and you're used to from the PW series. There are surprising moments, whacky characters, great dialogues, and those annoying points where you can't seem to figure out what the answer to a puzzle is because the answer is a little vague.

I hate the vague.

I'll be playing PW: And Justice... thanks to your Amazon tip ( I didn't want to buy the second until I finished the first, but I'm excited to dive right in and pick it up again. Such a fun series.

I'm actually getting waist deep in Mega Man ZXAdvent. I want to say it's suprisingly good, but I'm not that suprised after ZX. My girlfriend is having lots of fun with Phoenix Wright though. ^^ I also recently picked up Super Robot Taisen 2... it was sitting so lonely in Gamestop, I had to take it home.

I'm also in the midst of ZX Advent, however a copy of PW3 is sitting on my game shelf after I'm done with it.

Thanks to Digital River's massive fail in getting the game out to people who preordered it from the Capcom site, I'm still waiting for my copy. I'm replaying the last case of JFA while I wait.

Finished it more than 1 month ago. Best one of the series, by far.

I'm on the second case, and just when I thought it was finished (far too quickly), things took a turn... for the interesting! The first case is the best opening case in the series so far, I think. It's definitely living up to my exceedingly high expectations!

Gah! Amazon was late on my delivery, just got the shipping confirmation today, so I'm playing Touch Detective 2 1/2 (yes, I like the quirkiness and the leaps of logic ;) ).

I've only been playing Luminous Arc this week. I wrote it off as a FFTA clone(which is only partly accurate) and so I decided to give it a second chance, and I actually like it, though every time I play it I find myself coming up with a list of things that should have been changed.

After I beat that I'm going back to Picross DS. Normal Level 10 and I have a score to settle.

I, too, need to beat Phantom Hourglass before tacking Phoenix Wright. It's a shame there aren't more hours in a day (of course, I'd just spend more of the time not getting enough sleep)

I just finished Case Two about a few hours ago, but turned off before the new one because I needed a break. I think after I'm done with this post, I'll grab some water and head off to begin Case Three.

I'm on the second case.
Does anyone else loathe the translation of the past two games? I absolutely loved the first one. Any game that makes me laugh out loud every other minute is definitely a keeper. Here, the script is just painful to read. It's so rigid and literal. Add the lame and awkward cultural references (the milkshake reference) and the only reason i'm playing the game is to solve the puzzles. Ughhhh get Alexander O. Smith on the translation team again!
