|Episode 1: Turnabout Trump recap|
Kristoph is a fucking badass. I didn't know anything about him at all at first but he really surprised me. At first I thought "a male version of Mia? ok that's cool." but then when the trial started he turned out to be very different, a lot more slick, and cold-hearted. His badass-ness was sealed when you found out that he was the villain.. I never would've expected the mentor of the first case being the villain, it doesn't get more badass than that.
Apollo is actually pretty funny. Phoenix was never much of a joker but Apollo actually made me laugh a few times.
and Phoenix is... different now. I was thinking he must've been using that magatama thing to cheat at Poker... but that doesn't seem like him. there seems to be some huge backstory involving him and Kristoph that will be revealed later on. It should be pretty interesting. I haven't really gotten to see any of Kristoph's attorney-ing skills yet since Phoenix took most of the spotlight in 4-1.
Episode 2: Turnabout Corner - Investigation part 1 recap
I think I like Trucy as the comic-relief assistant a lot more than Maya. As far as how I like her on the whole I don't know yet. Maya started off with a much more interesting introduction plus she's more lovable. Trucy seems like a less serious/more wacky version of Maya.
Phoenix was 18 when Trucy was born, that means the mother HAS to be Iris, it's just too perfect. I don't know if the game reveals Trucy's backstory or not, even if it doesn't they probably meant for you to put the pieces together and figure it out yourself. I'd imagine Iris put Trucy in the protection of one of the families in the Fey village and it wasn't until after 3-5 that Phoenix found out about it.
lol it looks like Ema is going to be the new Gumshoe, and now that I think about it it makes sense. She's a dimwitted but loyal and lovable detective just like Gumshoe was.
I don't know what to think of Klavier yet. I just got to the start of the trial and had to quit before the cross-examination started. He's a foreign rock-star who became a prosecutor just because I took down his brother? WTF, that seems retarded. Then again, Godot's reason for becoming a prosecutor seemed retarded too at first but he turned out to be an amazing character.
I'm loving all the humor in this game so far. I can't stop laughing whenever Wocky Kitaki speaks. 4-2 just might be the funniest AA case yet. Trucy and her panties, Eldoon and how much it look like he has a bowl of noodles on his head, Ema's MUNCH-ing, the Kitaki family... fucking hilarious.
