Miss Lawson. Having names in this world is a curse.
Godot's still working. Excellent. He's a brilliant teacher. Indeed.
She was hoping for Godot, brilliant.
Girl got prosecutor Debeste. RIP Girl.
I'm unsure if it's intentional or not, but Swift's smiling face with eyes closed has his eye and mouth twitch on the right side (from our perspective).
So many badges on the screen! THIS IS BADGE OVERLOAD
Why is bring out his cat???
Relentless training. This training does not relent.
Time to poke our nose all over his office.
He might be winning against himself, but I'd say he's also losing.
Better not leave fingerprints anywhere. This room is a murderhouse.
Just a simple ladder.
Such snoopery 'round the office.
When in trouble, present the badge! (G-guess that didn't work!)
Nooooo! I can't look away either! He'll scold me and I'll like it!
Falling spectacularly does always fix everything.
I'm not sure you can be a lawyer like that, Nina. You need to improve your time manipulation abilities or you won't be able to fit all those monologues in.
That Oldbag manages to get hired everywhere. Must be really good at buttering up employers.
"On my next break" ha ha, such joke.
Examining the suit with Edgeworth: "just how much it cost" should be 'costs'. Edit: Forgot the context. If it's past, 'cost' could work.
More people should own these unambiguous ladders. It would save the world a lot of strife.
Anything but having to deal with Gavin!
Franzisca butterwhips? Dropping Steel samurai statues left and right.
Oh, it's Kay. I thought it was Maggie for a while, but Kay does make more sense.
What fine excuse making. Such BLUFF.
A girl at the concert says 'Prosecutur'
Bottoms up, Edgeworth.
Thank you for upDaTInG tHe AutOPsY REPorT.
Thank god Edgeworth has been properly teaching his students how to present badges.
The pink is overwhelming to the eyes. That is true.
Yes. Let us scorch the evidence to the lab.
Edgeworth! You should be intimately familiar with investigation sequences! Let Ms. Lawson investigate the room instead of listening to her friend.
Chapter 7. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with a 'sarky smile'.
Such ladder-minded people.
'The only thing he deserves is a thorough whipping', I think the line was, has too short a timer. I could barely read it.
Von Karma underwent a bit of development both during the investigations games and even the trilogy. I wonder what Von Karma the one here is. It's not too clear because either Von Karma will continue going on about perfection, but only one of them would let it get in the way of a proper investigation. Edit: Oh, Gavin is here. Right. That means post-investigations.
Ha! Franziska wants more female prosecutors. Got assigned with just boys. Regrettable. For them. They're gonna get whipped.
Yes, I do frequently hire security ladies for protection against security ladies.
Oh, yes. Godot was there at the start, but since this is post AJ... Huh. Continuity is hard to maintain, but it kinda works. Edit: The ages don't, so I'll just roll with it and whatever.
Okay, yes. I admit the way she brought up the subject all of a sudden is rather similar to presenting a profile.
'grow out of it soonTM'
When I present to Godot Godot's profile, he says 'why I am here to...'
Those sales figures do seem to have something of a bias problem.
When I present Justin, he says 'As for you try a...'
In the phone conversation with Nina, Godot's timer is too short.
Handkerchief not registered into evidence.
I need to keep presenting evidence. It is the only currency that can get me cat pictures!
I pity Godot. He can't tell Edgeworth to wear a differently coloured suit because he can't find him.
Who had the brilliant idea of asking Edgeworth 'what he really thinks'? Give me a single situation where that won't backfire.
I really don't see Edgeworth saying 'Sorry, sorry.', ever. Doesn't seem like something he'd say.
Godot is currently otherwise engaged discussing philosophy with Mr. Payne.
Franziska has no need for petty things such as presenting badges.I will wait for the next part. I'm really glad a story like this exists in case form.Spoiler : Thoughts :Disclaimer: I have no idea how much is you and how much was in the original story, so I'll just not discriminate at all.
One of the things about Ace Attorney I have always found immensely fun, are those short moments where we get to see the character's normal lives without it being a case. Messing about with Trucy, cleaning toilers, being watered by Charlie...
So I knew for a fact that I'd like a lot of this setting, and I do! It's really good to see the characters interacting with one another outside of cases for a bit.
The humour feels really Ace Attorney all around. Presenting stuff, talking to people, it's fantastic! Lawson does make for an excellent protagonist.
In terms of the romance, which was more or less one of the focal points, I... I honestly don't know. I feel it should be subtler, but that would 'subtle' it out of existence, as it's very hard to notice to begin with. Perhaps the problem is that it's not my preferred form of get-together. I am always much more found of two people becoming used to the presence of one another in their lives and going from there. Unrequited feelings or having a character notice theirs considerably before the other is not my thing.
Anyhow, all characters felt like themselves when they were present (and I don't want to imagine what hell it must be trying to write Godot. If I tried, I'd probably end up putting two or three mentions of coffee every conversation and hope that passes), and as I said, the whole thing felt very genuine. Their thoughts and interactions in their normal day to day lives.
Vielwerth a écrit :Hello!
Just to say, the entirety of part 1 is now complete! I'll be submitting it to QA, and then be starting immediately on Part 2.
Please let me know if there are any questions or feedback or anything
Thank you for playing!
kidusrox a écrit :Finally got time to play the rest of Part 1 and I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU PUT ME IN THE CREDITS! Thank you so much! I'm gonna go edit this video right after posting this, and it'll go up tomorrow.
Honestly, this has been incredible. I can't describe how much I've enjoyed it so far! I'll be waiting in anticipation for the rest of the story.
Enthalpy a écrit :Thanks again for your patience with the review. It's been a combination of letting myself be carried away with work and this being a difficult review for me. This is not my usual genre, by any means.
I'll have something more concrete by this time next week. Remind me here if I forget.
Enthalpy a écrit :Thank you. Before I get any further, I should confirm...Spoiler : :A game like this needs to be evaluated on its own terms, and it is so niche, I want to make sure that I have the big picture of what it's trying to be right. On the most superficial level, it's a visual novel about our female protagonist dating Edgeworth, but...
* A prominent concern is the people of the prosecutor's office. This is why we spend a great deal of time with other prosecutors like Franziska and Klavier, as well as office workers and a trainee prosecutor who loves to gossip about the office.
I think so mostly, yes. The other characters aid to add to the immersion of this being a self-insert and help to pace things out so that it's not just Edgeworth-Nina-Edgeworth-Nina. They are important, but at the same time, no more than side characters, really.
* Nina is meant to be partway between a reader insert and a character in her own right.
Yes, but more towards the self-insert side of things. However, this being a game rather than a fic and mostly being told through her eyes rather than narration, she seems to have picked up a bit more of a personality than in the original work.
* This is meant to be very "fluffy," both in the sense of minimal conflict (the tension of Justin possibly losing his job is resolved in the same chapter) and in the sense of details not being particularly important for individual scenes. Big picture movements are enough. It's enough to see feelings growing in, not the in-depth psychology.
Yes. The main conflicts act only as a device to move Edgeworth and Nina towards each other emotionally (e.g. with Justin potentionally losing his job, it's more of a device to have Nina realise that Edgeworth would do something like that for one of his students and be impressed by it). The main, overarching conflict about Nina's past starting around Chapter 10 is also primarily a device to this effect, rather than a way to flesh out Nina's character, though that it does is an added bonus.
* The main dynamic driving the ship is...
For Edgeworth, slipping into a protector and mentor role while also dealing with his "difficulties" with women and social awkwardness.
For Nina, growing as a prosecutor, overcoming her initial impressions that Edgeworth is completely cold, and also acting more, as opposed to just thinking about what she wants.
Yes, I would say so. For Edgeworth as well, a key point is his lack of awareness around his own feelings (he knows he feels this way towards Nina, but he can't put a label on it (i.e. romantic attraction) because he's never experienced it before.). For Nina as well, there's also solving the case in her past which is her main motivation, but also a big driving force between her and Edgeworth coming together (though this is mostly relevant starting from part 2).
Enthalpy a écrit :This has obviously taken a lot longer than expected. Part of it it my being distracted with work, but I'll admit that my not knowing how to approach a game like this isn't helping.
Accordingly, I'm going to change the review format from normal, to make procrastination harder for me.
This is going to be a modular review. I discuss one aspect of the case at a time in spoiler tags, in more detail than usual. You can respond as soon as I post a piece and point out cases where something I take issue with really is just part of the genre. I'll still be sorting out my feelings on the case as I go, so I'll have an open mind to any comments you have on my review as I go. The goal is to get through at least two "modules" a week.
Does this sound good to you? If so, I think I'll start with the characters of Edgeworth and Nina.
