According to the Zelda Wiki OoT article, at least, it seems that all builds of the game were completed before the original release date, meaning that the version with the islamic-sounding chant and the version(s) without it were all created before there could possibly have been any kind of outcry and demands for alteration. It's just a wiki, though, and it doesn't provide any kind of outside source for the info, so believe what you will. If you want some kind of official response, your best bet would be contacting Nintendo proper to see what they have to say.

true, but the gameplay and the quirkiness of the characters had me just as hooked as the actual story. i'd love to play another point-and-click game like that even if it had an entirely different story and cast of characters behind it, it was really a lot of fun IMO.

The more complex a system becomes, the more that can potentially go wrong with the software released for it. sh*t happens, and so long as a fix is available, i'm okay with that.

i already posted this earlier to one of the Bit.Trip features, but my personal ranking goes as follows:

  • CORE = RUNNER
  • FATE
  • BEAT = FLUX
  • VOID

i put Runner and Core as equal to one another because generally if someone asks me what my favorite bit.trip game is, it'll be one of those two that come out of my mouth. i can't really choose between them, so don't ask. same for Beat and Flux :3 the only thing i know for absolute sure is that Void is at the bottom of my list. also, i love them all (except Void), so really having to put them in some kind of order has very little meaning in the long run, haha.

as for a seventh game, idk if i'd even bother, unless it was maybe some kind of epic love story-ish thing with CGV following CV from the end of Fate to the ultimate end of his journey in Flux. they wrapped up CV's story pretty tight, y'know.

I do agree that Apollo himself isn't much of a lawyer (yet), but then I don't really feel that was the point of the game. Any new person coming into AA4 as the main character would have some gigantic shoes to fill, so they didn't really bother — they created an entirely new style of story (in comparison to the original trilogy) and used Apollo Justice to showcase the greatness that is Phoenix Wright himself. I love Hobo!Feenie, he is seriously amazing and deserved every bit of his mentor-ish role, which was fantastic IMO. After having spent the entire original trilogy playing the fool himself, he finally got to be the guy in the know, kinda pulling the strings himself, and to me that was a satisfying thing to have play out before me. that's why it's my favorite, haha :3

As for no Maya, Iris, Pearl, etc. — if it'd been two or three years of disbarment, i would've been more suspicious at the lack of any of his friends hanging around, but seven plus him doing the vagrant thing, yeah I can see some leaving him to his own devices and the others staying far away so as not to wreck everything he was trying to do (or hell, them being busy with their own careers during the events of AJ, lol). Edgeworth, the Feys, and everyone else all played their story out through the original trilogy, and it was an awesome story at that, but too much of a good thing is a bad thing. AJ was a much-needed break from the existing tales of craziness and woe, I thought. If/when we see another main-series sequel, I'd definitely like to see (or at least be told?) what happened to the bigger players (namely the aforementioned Feys and Edgey), and also to see perhaps a stronger (wiser?) Apollo taking the helm for reals, haha. idk how they'd manage to wrangle that all together without Shu Takumi, though. I want a sequel, but not if he's not there directing it and making it as awesome as everything else he's had a hand in. :(

I did feel it was odd that there were no other cameos than Phoenix and Ema, but in retrospect I do think it was the best choice in terms of Apollo Justice. AAI was pretty ridiculous in the cameo respect — Butz and Oldbag are best served in small doses, not continually used over and over. Give some other characters a chance to shine. I liked how they reused Adrian Andrews and Lotta Hart over the course of the original trilogy, they fit with the cases they were used in very easily. In AAI they had to talk pretty fast to make it believable — even the connection between Gumshoe and Kay felt like a stretch to me. IMO, it would've been better just to use some new characters that didn't get in the way of poor Edgey's natural greatness. Edgeworth isn't some newbie pulled in off the streets, he's a solid fixture of the original trilogy and he deserved better than what AAI handed him — for crap's sake, the final case is supposed to be the best of what the game has to offer, and that was just a horrid, drawn-out mess. Hopefully Capcom will fix everything in AAI2; the Gregory Edgeworth thing has me intrigued and i don't want any cameos of annoying people screwing that up.

i get where you're coming from, though. being the weakest game out of an otherwise excellent series (usually) isn't a bad thing, i guess. i was just messing around with the 'them's fightin' words'; i just found it funny that we were on the opposite sides of that particular fence. plus, i don't get to use that phrase enough :3

AAI wasn't quite as good as Trials and Tribulations or Ace Attorney, but it was certainly better than Apollo Justice (awful characters, poor decisions regarding Phoenix Wright and the lack of any real cameos from Edgeworth, Gumshoe, etc)

them's fightin' words :O Apollo Justice is my favorite of the series so far and i love it to bits. Unlike AAI, it didn't have to resort to hitting you with cameo after cameo to get you through it, the characters were much more memorable (and likeable), and that last case blew me away for srs. :3

That's a completely different hypothesis, though, and I'd like to counter it with the fact that I've busted a gut laughing at my husband more than once because he went down like a ton of bricks after something hit him in the groin. He's usually too busy groaning and stumbling around to land any hits afterward.

therefore, 'laughing at your spouse results in physical pain' can only be Plausible, not Confirmed >:3

@James: I'd watch that episode before writing it off as flat-out wrong — they tested the slippery effects of banana peels pretty thoroughly. The myth they busted was that 'it is guaranteed that a person who steps on a banana peel will slip and fall', though, which is what i think people have forgotten. it's not that it'd never happen, it's just that the results were too inconsistent to guarantee a fall every time.

all right, curiosity satisfied — i didn't touch the wiimote throughout the entire end sequence. the final ending did trigger much more quickly than when i played through and then set it aside — i could hear it trigger right after the screen went totally white — but then all of a sudden the wiimote connection timed out and the 'connection lost, press any button' screen came up just in time to halt the ending, haha. that was kinda funny, i thought :3

also, when the 'game over' screen is up, it doesn't matter whether the wiimote is connected or not. i briefly pondered leaving it alone for a while and seeing what happened, but then i figured that it was time for me to really let go and do something else, haha. so i'm done with the ending (and that freakin' end boss, holy crap i hate that thing). i'm'a go back to the first two levels for a while :3
