Duke did you kill Rita?
“He gave her dope and dynamite. That’s what. Some gentleman!”
I don’t know. Sounds pretty fun to me.
I feel like I’ve mentioned this before, but apparently I haven’t done so.
Bridget has a life insurance policy on Ted, a fact that nails the lid on
the defense’s figurative coffin when Grandma blabs about it, but the
prosecution didn’t turn this fact up somehow. Plot hole? Incompetent
Angie: “That’s really unfortunate. How could you have known that she would
have blurted that out?”
We couldn’t have, Angie, because we live in a world where we can’t question
witnesses properly or prepare them in any way.
“Oh well, at least you know now to avoid that trap.”
Thank you, Roberta Williams.
“Start – The Prosecution
(6 minute movie intro)”
I’d be sour about that insanely long intro if it wasn’t Michael
Gibson-brand craziness. For starters, we immediately get a lie from Angie;
discovering the real killer isn’t how we win the game.
The other problem is that one of the main menu options is a synopsis of
previous episodes, but the six-minute intro does the same thing via the
prosecution’s opening remarks (which double as a highlight reel for no
I can’t be the ONLY person who thinks the judge looks like Kim Jong Il, can
As much an homage to Phoenix Wright as “Metroid Beginings” [sic] is an
accurate prequel to any Metroid game.
I want to see an animated buddy cop movie where Ted joins the police force
and is partnered up with Duke. *MAKE IT HAPPEN, MICHAEL!*
“I put my eyeshadow on my ears” “Why are her eyes green? Is she a reptile
now?” “Why does the statue have a skeleton” “Did you have to come in your
yoga clothing?” my favourite quotes – I can’t stop laughing omg, this was
great – screaming Helen at the end freaked me the hell out though
Let’s all start a kickstarter for the next part of this game
a lot of ‘pick the wrong choice and lose’ games come from old text
adventures that expect you to know what happened last time. There’s no
winning without meta-knowledge. Trying to role-play realistically simply
Since when are courts declared mistrials when the defendant’s witness
admits possible motivation for the crime?
So, looking back at all of this, I see that there are more plot holes than
I had ever realized.
So Klink gives Bridget dynamite for Ted, and then she has Ted go and try to
blow up Klink’s building. Klink also should have cancer, but I think
Gibson forgot about that. Duke is working for Klink, but Klink has Duke
thrown out during the marriage counseling. Helen and Yale don’t seem to
notice that their marriage counselor is suddenly in court as a police
These are all the ones that immediately come to mind. I can’t imagine how
many someone would find if they actually thought about it.
I know everyone loves the ” I’m a terrorist!” line, but I think my favorite
is when Bridget takes the oath. It makes me laugh every time for some
You know what? I’m just going to put it as my own personal canon that Duke
Crabtree changes his name to Nukem when he finally hits puberty. He’s got
the hair, a green radioactive glow, and the name. All he needs are a pair
of sunglasses and a lack of bubblegum
Thank god this is over.
I can’t get over the part at 38:50 when Ted fires at the van and his gun
and his hands keep morphing between shots. Even for 2000 or when this was
made, who’d look at this and be like “Ayup.. perfect. No need to fix what
Oh please, any option that involves punching Duke is the right option!
Why did you keep picking the same set of choices each time in the ante
I love how vitriolic slowbeef is towards the judge! “I’m sorry, Your Honor,
do YOU want to defend my client?!”
“I have some bad news. That’s the end of the Ambition Series”
…So what’s the bad news?
Pinko?! What the hell is this, the 1950’s?!
It’s hard to tell if the developers of this game used the song in the
beginning because of Poirot or not. I almost wish because I love any fans
of the show, no matter how shit the game is.
