@One-Winged-Pit
I'm not really penalizing the last case. I mean, I love RftA, and that doesn't really relate to the larger plot either. I just didn't care for how episodic the whole game felt. It's not a bad game, by any stretch of the imagination, but I think the first and last game set a really high bar for the series that the second one just can't reach.

@Lizuka Well, let's look at the cases piecemeal, and then as a whole. The first case has a really awful amnesia gimmick and an obnoxious villain. Of course, the first game has a VERY basic first case, but this one is even less fun to play, somehow. So: worst tutorial case in the series. The second case is decent and adds a number of elements to the series, but it is the only one that is relevant to the larger plot of the series. The third case is almost universally reviled. The fourth and final case, while pretty good, is, for me, the worst final case in the original trilogy. It's just an isolated incident that comes out of nowhere and has no larger bearing on the series. It does make for an interesting case, though, I will admit. So, for the shortest game in the series, it sure is lacking in consistency. Moreover, my biggest problem with it is that, unlike the first and third games, which gradually build up these big stories, the second game is very episodic. It's not entirely a waste: it introduces Pearl, Franziska, and fleshes out the situation with Maya's family. However, it feels like a prologue to Trials and Tribulations. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as it means the third game can just focus on being awesome, but it doesn't really have it's own identity.

Anyhow, those are my feelings on the situation.

Fair price, but I already own them. I'm not sure what I'll end up doing.

@Spoony_Tech
Second game, Justice for All, is OK, but not as good as the first. The third game, Trials and Tribulations, is amazing, though. It builds off of the first two games to provide an utterly memorable story.

Worst headline I've seen here since the one that equated Senran Kagura with child pornography.

Software pirates can and will find workarounds if you try gimping their internet, and doing so will only anger them and make the problem worse.

Piracy is largely about cost and convenience. All one needs to do to cut down on piracy is to make it more convenient to legally buy content than to pirate it. Nintendo has been doing a pretty good job of that by making it a pain in the butt to play pirated games on the 3DS. Also, it's on the right track by cracking down on those R4-type cards.

I'm kind of the opposite, really. Went from Playstation and Microsoft back to Nintendo. They're clearly trying to repent for the long, dark days of the Wii era. Microsoft is... well... Microsoft, and Sony is becoming too western.
