    Honestly, I'm not entirely sure why people hate these two so much. I went into them hearing how much people disliked them and was bracing myself for something downright terrible but I ended up enjoying both quite a bit. It was the same for Apollo Justice, which, these days gets a much better reputation, but back in the day people were really really upset at it.

    I think part of it is how inconsistent they feel as a trilogy, what with the 3 different and never referenced again Appolo backstory, as well as how Phoenix goes back to how he always behaved as soon as he is playable despite how drastically different he was in Apollo Justice

    Honestly AA is so good even the worst one are still thoroughly entertaining. I don't remember actually hating any case except the circus one.

    That makes sense. I think I just treated each game as a standalone package (except the GAA and AAI duologies which explicitly connect to each other) and that's probably why I more or less enjoyed them. AA2 has the only case in the entire franchise I actively felt frustrated by, and I thought both Spirit of Justice and Dual Destinies had some really good stuff, mostly to do with their respective final cases.

    Yeah they're not bad by any means, it's just that if you go into Dual Destinies thinking "Boy I sure wonder how the stuff from Apollo Justice is going to be used here, what with Apollo going all edgy badass and Phoenix coming back as an attorney", you're going to be sourly disappointed

    Well, I'm glad you managed to find some enjoyment out of them because I sure didn't.

    I was worried that it was me and that I wasn't enjoying AA games as a whole anymore, but after playing both PLvsAA and GAA it dawned on me that the common denominator was that I just don't think Takeshi Yamazaki is well suited to be writing for an AA game.

    I'm curious - is there any reason in particular why you think that's the case?

    Because there wasn't a single well written case in either DD or SoJ.

    Dual Destinies is great and I'll have no detractors.

    A little side-by-side comparison of the new and old graphics.



    Interestingly it looks like they've shook up the puzzles, presumably to compensate for the jump from DS to Switch.

    I don't care, but my first thought was "wow, they'll finally be forced to hire professional actors, amazing".

    My dad adores BoTW and ToTK though so he'll probably go poggers.

    The Tom Holland memes have already started to spread.

    ...Wait was that a slap at the actors in recent Zelda games?

    Sure was. I don't know what went so wrong. Ire at one character in particular might be overwhelming my impressions of the rest, but none of them made think, "ah... good voice acting..."
