Author has written 2 stories for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
I'm MasterMindOfFiction. You've probably never heard of me, you probably don't care to know me.
Well traditionally you're supposed to write down a quick bio of yourself on a profile.
What you need to know is that I'm some random eighteen year old girl/woman/whatever term applies to my mental maturity, and in Scotland resides my home base and the majority of my life as I know it.
The only thing I write for is the Ace Attorney series. But I think I suck at it, and I've never been able to convince myself I was actually improving. From 2012 to early 2014 I wrote about sixteen stories or so. . .I think? Something like that. But I deleted the majority due to crippling embarrassment with them. Only 'Turnabout Reset' remains because I believe everything bad about my writing is represented by that piece of crap's quality.
I'm a big Ace Attorney fan, but I also can't ignore the fact the fan base can be really shocking. Like, there are people who think no matter how good a new game in the series is it's not worth anything if it doesn't have Maya Fey involved even in a small cameo. But how much money are you willing to bet that if she really did appear in a new game with just a minute appearance and left forever, people would rage?
It's worth mentioning at this point that I am open to a series' willingness to expand to include new elements. I've only ever played ONE Call Of Duty game, but it's kind of like that saying thrown around that COD never actually changes and it's just the same recycled concepts. Again, I've little experience with that series but IF it is true then I don't want Ace Attorney to fall into a sink hole like that.
Also, I'm honestly sad to confess some of the fans especially on forums and such remind me of when I was big in the Sonic The Hedgehog games. Back in the day, as you hipsters say, I LOVED Sonic The Hedgehog but the fans became. . .toxic. I don't want to sound mean about it, but they acted like they were losing their sanity over what made a Sonic game good or bad and treated everything way too seriously. Even the people defending Sonic games nowadays act. . .terrifying to say the least. Also, I stand by my opinion that Sonic Adventure 2 is easily one of the most overhyped games I've ever seen in my life. (I actually really hate that game.)
I love Ace Attorney, but none of the alterations after the Phoenix Wright trilogy were so horrible to me. After all, I'll be the first to say Apollo is my favorite character. Also, I personally thought Dual Destinies was one of the best games of the entire series because it gave me some strong feels.
Sadly, I can't imagine Ace Attorney will have a pretty future. With the news that we're back to spirit channeling gimmicks, I'm sooooo disappointed right now. People say that spirit channeling NEEDS exist simply because 'it wouldn't be Ace Attorney without them'. NOPE. There's a reason I love both Apollo Justice and Dual Destinies; neither had the over-used gimmick. The spirit channeling had worn out its welcome by Trials And Tribulations and honestly despite how out of the Feys I do like Maya, Mia, Pearl, and Iris as characters. . .I don't think they needed to become the main focus of the whole plot.
Phoenix himself was a spectator. He did it before Apollo. . .when it was cool. But the point is: the Feys were the main characters. Their lives apparently mattered so much that it took three games to sooth their drama. With Maya being a damsel in distress all the time, Mia giving advice, Pearl providing assistance, and Iris with her and Dahlia's issues. . .you can't tell me the Feys WEREN'T the true main characters. But that's frustrating to me because after all of the focus on them for three games (even with Justice For All dealing with Franziska von Karma you can't tell me she mattered much considering how Maya still needed her screen time apparently). All of that exposure is now turning me against them.
I do like Maya, Mia, Pearl, and Iris as characters. But I cannot stress enough with all the fans crying for Maya's return, it's making me wish she and the rest of them never appear again. What about the supporting cast from days of old? Bring them back, and we're all good. Bring in Larry or. . .hell even Oldbag would be pleasant to see!
Well you probably heavily disagree with everything I said of the Ace Attorney series. But hey, that's all my opinion. If I didn't get it all off my chest, I'd explode hopefully not literally.
I don't actually long for the old days with Ace Attorney, however. I'm okay with changes, although if they had to bring back anything the side characters without 'Fey' in their names would be alright. Sorry if I come off as rant-ish, but I feel like I'm one of the very few whom have these feelings about the series' direction. Like that love/hate relationship I have with the Mega Man series. . .but. . .that's definitely not a safe one to talk about here! D :
