That’s unlikely to stop Ms. Fey’s attorney, though. With five trial wins under his belt, Phoenix Wright is already gaining the interest of LA’s media, although his deep links to the Fey Clan and reliance on bluffs will not do his credibility any favours.
I wrote this ages ago, but was never convinced it fit here, being that it’s an experimental, nerdy, “in-universe” news report from the world of the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney video games.
But the more I look at it, the more sure I am: this is one of the best bits of writing I’ve ever done.
I created and carefully timed the post to coincide with “Reunion, and Turnabout” – one of my favourite Ace Attorney cases, which is set in the summer of 2017. I loved poisoning my pen and throwing all the scummy tabloid tropes I could think of into my “article” – not to mention incorporating as many little references and bits of Ace Attorney lore as I could.
The remastered version of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is about to be released, and there are more major events coming up in the series’ timeline this month, so I’ll probably attempt another one of these before too long.
The puzzle designs, if they can be called that, are a little too shallow. Mostly it’s just a case of, “here’s a slightly different, slightly taller configuration of wooden poles to climb; let us know when you’re ready for some more.”
Things changed at the CeX Blog – the changes weren’t anything major, but they did mean losing the freedom to review what I wanted, when I wanted. Turns out I cared more about that than the extra money.
So my boyfriend and I started a new entertainment blog: Critical Chicken. It’s early days, but I’m having a great time and I’d love for you to check it out. I’m writing a lot more features and short-form stuff now, so I’ll have to try to figure out how to share that with you without turning this website into a parrot blog.
The annual-Hunger-Games-sequel-producing machine is exactly as well-oiled as you’d expect. Mockingjay Part 2’s production values are through the roof… But this industrial approach to filmmaking might also be the movie’s biggest downfall.
Wyrmwood is a smartly-written film, peppered with genuinely original, intriguing twists to the zombie movie format. I got scared, I wrung my hands, I said “no no no no” under my breath, and I genuinely felt for the characters when things went wrong.
The writing is certainly a lot sharper than you’ll find in most kids’ films. I knew, when the film pulled off a particularly deft/daft cheese pun around the half-hour mark, that it had earned a permanent place in my collection.
I’ve been writing for a long time, but today marks the one-year anniversary of when I started writing stuff for money (or, at least, the one-year anniversary of my Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright review getting published). I’m having the best time, and I can’t wait to see what Year Two has in store for me.

This film has everything: angry robot spiders, a zombie virus, PG-13 swearing, and hundreds of unnecessary proper nouns (Glade, Gladers, the Box, the Maze, Blades, Runners, Grievers, etc.). There’s a lot of naff charm to be found here.
