The Wright Game to Play: Ace Attorney Trilogy

It has been such a long, long time since my last post. During this period of being missing in action, I got caught up in a new game I was playing to the point my life even revolved around it at some point.

TAKE THAT! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy!

I completed the final game in the trilogy just last night at 2am. It is SUCH A GREAT GAME. I’ll never regret making the decision to begin playing it a month ago.

If you didn’t already know, the Ace Attorney series is a game that puts you in a fictional world along with its equally fictional judicial system. You primarily play as a defense attorney named Phoenix Wright, which is this individual here:

Breaking Free(ingSG)

As part of my assignment, I did a feature article on escape rooms. And requirements state I have to experience it myself and write a review on it.

Sure, why not?

I don’t want to give too much information here because I don’t want to be accused of plagiarism (curse you, SafeAssign!). Oh lord, if I post photos too, will that be considered against the rules too?

Alright, I’m gonna play it safe.

I’ll just give a very brief introduction. First off, the escape room company we visited was known as FreeingSG. We made a booking for the room entitled ‘Secrets of the Past – From Russia with Love’. It was my first time and I was awfully excited.

#fmsfbc15

That hashtag you see there? That is the tag for one of the most satisfying camps I’ve experienced in the 17 years of my not-so-action-packed life.

I found myself applying to be a member of the programme committee for FMSFBC2015, otherwise known as Film & Media Studies Freshmen Bonding Camp. Why? I’m uncertain, but I have a slight suspicion that one of the reasons was my subconscious wanting to avoid social interaction with strangers (I’m not good at it).

Nevertheless, I’ve dedicated myself to the role and preparations started. Over the course of one month, my awesome PLOG (programme and logistics) team wrecked brain cells to make FMSFBC2015 as good as last year’s, if not more. We planned, saw some of our plans fail, re-planned, did trials and whatnot. And painting. Lots and lots of painting. Ugh.

新年快乐

If you’re a Chinese, you have to celebrate Chinese New Year. What’s not to celebrate? You get to eat all the unhealthy snacks you want. Reunion dinners are one of the highlights too. Furthermore, you receive red packets filled with cash because our ancestors decided it is prosperous to do so! Chinese New Year also gives me an excuse to gamble and earn (or lose) more.

My paternal family members are Singaporeans. However, my maternal side resides in Malaysia. It is a little embarrassing to admit but I look forward to celebrating with my Malaysian cousins and relatives. Not that I dislike my paternal side or anything. It’s just that we get more leeway when having fun.

Scott A. Woodward in the house!!!

Something exciting happened this week (as you can probably tell from the title).

Initially, I didn’t feel that way. “Just another lecture, nothing new.” I could really use the time for assignments. But the more I heard Mr Scott speak, the more inspired I felt. In fact, by the end of it, I was so honoured to have this once-in-a lifetime chance to listen to his presentation that I almost felt unworthy to be in his presence.

That guy.

That guy.

Anime wonderland?

Maybe. If it weren’t for the crowds.

This year has been particularly eye-opening to me, both in a cultural and geek-ish way. I went for several conventions such as EOY and STGCC. Last Saturday was my third one. And it also happens to be one of the biggest events in the community, Anime Festival Asia.

There is so much happening this year, according to others anyway. Lots of music, games, art and shopping for merchandise. Plus, there’s a cool Attack on Titan tryout booth.

They even brought in the Oculus Rift for a Sword Art Online VR experience.
