I'm really enjoying that Greenrock Theatre Murders game.

The red cases are really difficult. As long as I can answer the questions on the cards I'm happy.

Finished them all with full solution in four days. Some red ones are challenging but it's great to see no problems similar to the ones I had in Cluedo Suspects.
There are two errors in the Dutch version:
On 14C there's an error that was picked out before the game was released: there's an extra card with 14Cii on it which has the right version.
The make-up lady is constantly being referred to as grimeur, which is a male make-up worker. The word for ladies, grimeuse, is rarely used, so that would be quite bearable if the translator hadn't specifically addressed her as him on a few occasions.

So, there's another Ace Attorney game coming out, and I came across this screenshot;

Let's review this, shall we? The defendant in a murder trial is a shy young woman who is a nature enthusiast, wears plants in her abnormally long hair, and has a pun name in which both names refer to nature in some way.

Coincidence? Almost certainly, but I found it vaguely amusing.

Oh good grief, they're using the Trolololol song in the Butlins adverts now!

I was watching The Deadly Women UK last night and some of the deaths struck a cord. I am normally a calm person but when I here about crimes that get unpunished, that rattles my cage.

Do you think that they should have death penalty in your state / country?

Death penalty in The Netherlands, is a big NO. If any politician speaks out in favour of capital punishment in my country, his career in politics is over. Abolishment of capital punishment is one of the conditions to become a member of the EU.
I'm con myself. The severity, cruelty and irreversability outweigh any argument of cost or revenge.

I'm not sure about anyone else, but I thought that David Suchet's Curtain was fantastic, not to mention that one of the Mustard actors was in the episode.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, what's your opinion?

The new worst game I've ever played is the Monopoly Chocolate edition, bought that at st Nick so we could play it. Basically you spin a warped disk around until you've divided all the chocolates according to the game rules, with 0 user input. What makes it worse is that the chocolate is gross. But the game board could make a cute poster.
