That's A Wrap: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

objection! may contain spoilers

I got my first look at the Ace Attorney series when I did a 3DS Game Binge for the site a couple months ago. I've been hearing people raving about these games for some time, but I guess I just shifted it to the back burner to focus on the more "heavy duty" games I wanted to play. Doing that binge helped me learn that, in fact, it's Phoenix I need in my life right now... he's all I've got time for!
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a 2001 interactive courtroom "drama" game by Capcom, originally made for the Game Boy Advance and later ported (and expanded*) for the Nintendo DS (and others) in 2005. It's the first of many in the Ace Attorney series, which, as the title suggests, follows a number of elite lawyers in their bid to bring justice to all.

I suppose I expected AA (teehee!) games to be puzzle in nature, and obviously law themed. I wasn't too far off. The game plays like an interactive novel, where a number of cases play out and it's up to you - as Phoenix - to memorize facts and point out inconsistencies in the stories of all people involved. A slight departure from the law theme, the game also includes an investigative portion in which Phoenix acts more like a detective than a defense attorney.

Don't Panic: Too Many Chili Dogs

I'm back! I'm back in saddle again!🎶 Good luck getting that unstuck from your mind...

Yeah, so 2016 was... dismal. Just a complete write off of a year, really, in all respects, but especially for And Then She Games. But I seem to be getting back into the swing of things here, just in time for... get this... my FOURTH anniversary! May 2017 makes four years of me editing the overuse of the word 'fuck' out of my articles so people might actually read them! Fuck! Yay! Anyway, after last year's failure to launch, so to speak, I thought I'd do another anniversary celebration for those of you who've stuck with me through thick and thin.

A quick glance at my collection proves that this past year (or two) has definitely been the year of Playstation. I've basically added nothing to my collection since paring down a while back (remember my midlife crisis?) except PS4 games, so that will be the theme of this year's giveaway! Apologies to Xbone and 'Tendo fans, but c'mon. You need these games.
As always, I'll be conducting the giveaway from twitter... it hasn't let me down yet, and if it ain't broke, don't fix it! If you haven't found me there yet, you're looking for @nintenlo. (Ironic, I know.) I will host each prize as a separate raffle, so you won't win something you're not interested in. You can enter for both if you like, but you can only win one!
