Here goes a loooooong explaining of my choices:
-Favourite Character: Edgeworth. Do I really have to explain? First, his infinite charm (Have you ever watched BBC Sherlock? Well, he competes with Sherlock in "Most charming guy ever"). In Court, he's like Death Note's L: It doesn't matter what you do, it seems he already expected it. You need really hard evidence to make him breakdown ("OBJECTION! That was... Objectionable!"). But he has an incredible sense of justice (Samurai Turnabout, Turnabout Goodbyes, Farewell my dear Turnabout, Bridge to the Turnabout). AA Investigations Logic system was a great way to explain. Shortly: Edgeworth is that character presented as evil, but you finish up loving.
-Despised Character: Max Galactica. Really, that guy grinds my gears... My most hated case ever, and this guy had to show up... It's not like Luke Atmey in The Stolen Turnabout. That guy had a great strategy, and you always felt like he knew something you didn't. Max Galactica tries to be "cool" and "arrogant" (a bit like Edgeworth), but totally fails at it and starts crying when he realizes what does actually happen.
-Overrated Character: Dee Vasquez. Some people say it's a "great" character because of her "mystery". Spoilers now: The same problem that Menendez had in Black Ops 2 story. They try to make her mysterious, but they explain too much of her (example of well-done mystery girl? Lamiroir). But if we had a standard character it'd be okay... Just we have a women that gets to jail because of an accidental homicide. Instead of because she had contacts in mafia (and Gumshoe catches her, so there's no excuse to that). Really, it's a lot of lost potential.
-Underrated Character: Penny Nichols. She has more to herself that it could be thought! She's more than "The Samurai Cards girl": She helps you all the time and even attracts Oldbag to leave you free. If you understand well most of her backstory, you'll know she has a lot of potential (as well as a lot of charm: She gets all the attention while she's on scene... But the game doesn't even call her by her name...).
-Favourite Game: Ace Attorney Trilogy/Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney. Reasons are easy: 3 games, HD, 3D, better soundtrack (I feel there's a great difference from playing the original DS games to this ones in terms of OST quality. I know it's the same, but I guess that they got bigger samples, so I feel the difference). PLvsAA was my 2014 GOTY, and I explained lots of times why.
-Least Favourite Game: Dual Destinies. Don't misunderstand me, the game is great. But CAPCOM chose not to translate it to any other language than English. Same with Trilogy, but at least Trilogy compensates with the best games in the series.
-Favourite Case: Turnabout Goodbyes/Farewell, my dear Turnabout. First: Edgeworth and Von Karma. Second: It's the most heart-pounding case in the series, the only one with two endings (only one is canon though) and puts not only your mind but also your feelings at the limit. It's almost impossible not to cry when you finish JFA.
-Least Favourite Case. Turnabout Big Top. No need to explain. Play it, and you'll understand by yourself.
-Favourite villain: Shelly de Killer/Manfred von Karma. Shelly, as I explained, brings your feelings to the limit. Von Karma is... Von Karma.
-Favourite Song: Pursuit ~ Chronology (1-5) (Turnabout Meets Orchestra)/Pursuit ~ Casting Magic. I actually love the whole OST, but these are the themes I've listened to most times.
-Favourite Couple: Gumshoe x Maggey. It's the cutest thing ever: We have the clumsy detective loved by everyone (except Edgeworth and Franziska) and the character nobody expected to see ever again. And we have sausages.
-Least Favourite Couple: Diego Armando x Mia. I just can't see it. I don't know how... Really, I wouldn't think Mia is Diego's type, nor that Diego is Mia's type...
-Favourite Breakdown. Eh... Edgewooooorrth... Eh... Edgewooooorrrth... Only... You would... Dare... Defy me! You and your father are my curse! Your father shamed me with a penalty on my record! And you... You left a scar on my shoulder that would never fade! I... I'll bury you! I'll bury you with my bare hands! Death! Death!

...why are there so many double fields?...
StickBrush's avatar
Don't ask me...

Sorry, too late, would need the tardis or something to undo.

Are you watching Doctor Who, by any chance? I've never watched it, but so many people say it's awesome. I only know the catchphrase "Trust me, I'm the Doctor" (which BTW I plan to make a t-shirt, saying "Trust me, I'm Herr Doktor". Why? Because of TF2 and because Herr Doktor sounds like "Master of Everything" xD).

I tried, but I can't find a way to access it... sadly... Though the TARDIS is kinda classic anyways ;p

I prefer a DeLorean...

C'mon, it's a DeLorean!

glad you used my template fellow edgeworth fan! I'm also glad you're giving penny nichols more reputation
StickBrush's avatar
Well, it was quite fun!
She's just sooooo underrated...

I finished the turnabout samurai a few days ago. She was one of the best parts in it

Along with Wendy Oldbag. But Oldbag comes back in JFA and T&T. Penny Nichols doesn't...

I'm playing Turnabout Big Top (sigh), Trilogy 3D version, ATM. I remember the stuff from when I played the original DS version... And it makes the case even more boring. But Farewell, my dear Turnabout is next, so it's worthy.

I actually don't hate turnabout big top
Yes it's fairly bland but it has some funny moments and I like seeing maya and nick interact (which makes farewell my turnabout even more heartwrenching). And hey at least it's not turnabout succession
StickBrush's avatar
Hm... But at least Turnabout Succession had new stuff.

Good point there. The case had a lot going for it but because of its flimsy execution and the actual usage of a plot device it blew

I see it as Dark Souls 2 story. It tried to experiment, trying to give context instead of text, making the story about Drangleic instead of about the player's adventure in Drangleic. It failed, but at least it did experiment.
