Incredible Ghost Trick music video ⊟

Wow! This music video by sue composites pretty much every Ghost Trick character into a series of vignettes, united by Inspector Cabanela’s smoothest moves. I just, just replayed Ghost Trick over the holidays, and loved it again, and now I want to re-replay it. What a game that is. And yeah, there’s a lot of dancing in it. Credit to Hatsuu for the link!

Here’s why we need another Mega Man cartoon ⊟

Two reasons:

  1. We need more Cut Man shenanigans
  2. We need Lamar Abrams to work on the show, so he can incorporate these character designs he just posted (he has one for Roll, too!)

Since that’s probably not going to happen, I’ll settle for buying copies of Remake and watching the cartoon that Abrams is already contributing to, Steven Universe.

Mega Man Game Boy games coming to VC in May ⊟
Capcom announced plans to put all the unreleased Mega Man Game Boy games on Virtual Console throughout the month of “Mega May.” That means Mega Man 2, 3, 4, 5, Xtreme, and Xtreme 2, which is way more VC games than usually come out in a month.
There’s a poll on Capcom-Unity to determine which of those will come out first. I just voted for 2 because why would you release them out of order? Why would you do that. They have numbers on them. (For real, I’m not complaining – anyone who puts any number of VC games on 3DS is doing all right by me)
The comments on that post are, as comments tend to be, way overreaching, with people requesting new games, Battle Network games, or new Battle Network games instead of the emulated Game Boy games that are actually happening.

Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney's EU launch trailer ⊟

While we’re sitting around like a bunch of chumps in the U.S. waiting for a release date, Europe and Australia already have this game in their hands. Here’s what we’re missing out on. :o(

Let’s say that, if we have all seven Dragon Balls right here, right now, and Shen Long comes up and says, ‘What’s your wish?’ My wish would be, give me all the right tools, people, and environment to create Legends 3.

Keiji Inafune, recounting his Dragon Ball Z fanfiction continuing desire to see Mega Man Legends 3 completed, in an interview with USGamer’s Jeremy Parish.

He said that since Capcom still owns the IP he can’t just make it, but that he’s confident he’d be able to get the team together, both from Capcom and outside, if given the opportunity to finish the cancelled 3DS project. But would he be able to convince Yamcha to join him on another adventure?

Three Little Monster Hunters ⊟

I love that this is how Capcom is advertising Monster Hunter 4. Just put some animal masks on, whatever! It’s a really funny ad despite, or maybe because of, its low-budgetness.

Why is Capcom even doing commercials for this game anyway? Is there someone in Japan who doesn’t know about Monster Hunter?

Monster Hunter Felyne earmuffs ⊟

Crucial armor to help defend against the deadliest monster of all: chilly weather. You don’t even have to kill and skin Felynes to get them! You just have to pay $7.50 at J-List (yellow, pink).

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate hits U.S. in 2015 ⊟

Out of nowhere, Capcom announced today that 3DS-exclusive Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will release to Japan in fall 2014 and Western countries early next year. Yessssss.

As fun as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was, it’s going to be great to have a 3DS entry for the series with online multiplayer. You can watch a Japanese gameplay trailer for MH4U here.

Ace Attorney 123's boxart, charms tho ⊟

When people in Japan preorder Ace Attorney 123: Wright Selection from the E-Capcom shop, they’ll not only get the standard bonuses (desktop wallpaper and a remixed music track), they will receive a cute 7cm charm randomly selected from a set of three.

Official Ace Attorney 3DS XL cover ⊟

This blue cover features a “Phoenix Wright’s Suit” motif and an “Objection!” graphic on the back, and it ships in March from CapcomUSA. Y’all thought I was going to say Japan, didn’t you?

Capcom Japan did use a similar design for a 3DS pouch, but a $20 case is a lot easier to swing than a 3DS game limited edition set, especially across regions! So will you take the case, hurr hurr?

Some thoughts about Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies ⊟
As I neared the final case of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, I was certain it was not only my least favorite game of the series, but the worst game. After completing the thrilling final case and experiencing the story as a whole, I no longer think it’s my least favorite story, though there’s no doubt in my mind it’s the worst in terms of gameplay.
Rather than connect all the thoughts swimming around in my head into some kind of coherent opinion, I thought I’d just… list them, or something.
Please stop solving the puzzles for me, Ace Attorney. One of the best things about the series, and in fact the only actual bit of gameplay, is figuring out contradictions and using them to solve each case. But just as a big revelation was looming, the script swooped in and explained it to me so I would know exactly what evidence to present. Pretty much every time.
Bobby Fulbright is the best character. I thought I’d miss the addled, rumpled Detective Gumshoe, but I loved his replacement, Bobby Fulbright. He’s just as dopey as Gumshoe, but supremely confident in his dopeyness. I can’t get enough of that ’70s supercop character design, either. In justice we trust!!!
Apollo Justice is not the best character. Or, rather, he’s not used to great effect here. In his own game, Apollo was the naive youth, possessing infinite energy, a loud voice and a total lack of self-confidence. Here, we’re asked to believe him as a Mysterious Hero. It reminds me of how Phoenix Wright was supposed to be the Man of Mystery in the last game, but just came off as an asshole who wouldn’t tell anyone anything.
And while I’m talking about characters, Simon Blackquill is pretty boring. Sorry! His thing is that he’s violent (which Franziska von Karma did better) and he speaks too properly (like every prosecutor in every one of these games).
Okay, one last thing about the characters: Why is Phoenix Wright even here? This is primarily an Athena Cykes game, and partly an Apollo Justice game, and Phoenix is pretty much just there to justify the title of the game. In fact, a lot of characters just show up to some extent to make cameos. Why? Because you might want to see them. It’s nostalgia, for games that came out a few years ago.  
I have some specific thoughts about Case 3, but they might be super-spoilery, so I’ll write them up in a bit and add a link later.
The overall narrative tied together beautifully. One of the things I always forget about Ace Attorney games is that most of the cases in each game tell part of the same story, each case building toward a cascading conclusion at the end, and this one was especially satisfying. I felt a lot better about the game as a whole after the ending. 
My verdict for this not-a-review: I’m still glad I bought it, and still delighted to have played it, but the perfunctory cameos make it feel almost like Phoenix Wright fanfic than the genuine article. And don’t expect to be asked to work your brain to execute the dramatic turnabouts we love. I still love playing Ace Attorney games, and Dual Destinies is still one of those – there’s nothing like them – but it’s not a standout within the series.
The good news is that Capcom has a really flexible 3D Phoenix Wright engine now, so I’m guessing we’ll get a couple more games. Let’s just hope Shu Takumi is back on the next one — apparently something is already in the works, and Takumi intends to announce his next project in 2014.
