  1. About halfway through Ace Attorney 2.

    Why is Phoenix such a bitch in this game whenever Edgeworth is mentioned

      It’s overplayed, but it’s because he believes Edgeworth committed suicide to run away from his problems after AA1 or something like that.

      That hardly even makes narrative sense with either of AA1's endings (and from what I can tell, 1-5 was more of an alternate way of interpreting Edgeworth's character since unlike the previous cases he's shown as less underhanded--I'm aware this is DS exclusive and doesn't really apply to anything directly in AA2). It just seems unnecessary, but maybe it will make sense in context when I get to the final case since I was already aware Edgeworth is in the final case, and I knew he was a mainstay character for years. Right now it's just dumb overdramatics that felt really distracting because I actually had to stop and think if I somehow forgot some important detail from the ending of 1-4.

      It's been a while since I played through the trilogy on my 3ds, but I recall Edgeworth just sort of pulls a Kramer in the last case if I recall correctly. He's more important to Von Karma's backstory in Ace Attorney 2 than Phoenix. Capcom probably wrote it that way just to build up suspense for when he did return.

      Phoenix acts like a scorned ex in AA2 and it's really, really bad and embarrassing, especially the part where he literally tells Edgeworth to kill himself.

      Yeah I didn't get it either. It was forced and came out of nowhere which is why I didn't like 2 as much as I wanted to. But yeah Rise from the Ashes was made to explain why he why left 

      Spoiler

      Cause from his perspective the reason why he became a famous prosecutor in the firs place was because the entire case was fixed and he was set up. Didn't help that the case happened immediately after he found out that his mentor has been manipulating him throughout his entire life. 

      It's still poorly executed.

      It's pretty bad, and it just adds onto the tons of bad issues with the majority of AA2. Trials and Tribulations is a lot better at least.
