We've made it to the third trial, and I'm a little happy because they made it impossible for Phoenix to rely on Layton. The way they did it isn't too happy, but we're sure it will all be resolved.
Anyway, there's a parrot named Biscuit. This was very interesting to us, because any time the naming of animals comes up around Steve, he wants to name something Biscuit. We don't know why, but it comes up every time. And now here we are, playing this game, in Japanese no less, and there's an animal named Biscuit. I wonder if it's some kind of a movie reference or something.
Then! they decide to cross-examine the parrot. We should have known as soon as we saw the parrot that he would be cross-examined. It's just like in the first Ace Attorney game! Aww, memories. They had that part in the movie, too, and they spent a really long time on it.
But anyway, we were just about to point out the contradiction in the parrot's testimony when poof! the 3DS ran out of battery power and we had to stop. Unlike a regular DS, you can't just plug it in to the wall and keep playing, either. We really had to turn it off and put it on the charger. I wonder if that's to prevent people from damaging their eyes by staring at the 3D for too long. We always keep the 3D off, because it's a perspective thing, and when you have two people, you have two different perspectives, so the 3D only works for one person, while the other person is seeing double, and it's just...that just doesn't seem too good for the eyes, either. It was just as well, though, because it was already past our bedtime.
Today I'm thankful for finally getting past world 5 in Super Mario Bros. Wii, built-in safety devices, having fancy photo paper for our printer, handy envelopes for sending printer cartridges to be recycled, and Page joining us while we played video games.
