The second Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney game arrives in North America this week. Is Phoenix Wright a particularly accurate legal simulator? No. (Or "objection," if you prefer.) But is Phoenix Wright one of the smartest, most compelling, most well-written point-and-click adventure games since the hayday of LucasArts? Absolutely!
By the time you read this rant, 24's sixth season will have already premiered. But at the time I am actually writing this, it's still a few hours away. As always, I am simultaneously excited and terrified at the prospect of a new season. When the show is good, it's amazing. But when it's bad... I don't want to talk about it. The show's even-numbered years have been the worst offenders. Break the curse, season six. Break it like a man with a hacksaw.
