Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney released in NA



Three years and ten months - that’s how long it’s been since Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was first revealed in a blaze of glory (and animated trailer). Since then there’s been a second Ace Attorney Investigations game released, a fifth Ace Attorney game announced, developed, and released internationally, another spinoff series announced, and three Layton games released internationally.

Busy times for both series, but for North American fans, the wait is finally over. Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney launches today in North America, and is available now on the Nintendo eShop for $29.99 USD.  Tomorrow, a physical copy will hit store shelves.

As always, the C-R forums are open for discussion of the game and anything else AA-related. We’re still on the lookout for people to provide content (case summaries, walkthroughs, etc.), so if you’re interested, reach out to us through e-mail (courtrecord@gmail.com - no, there’s no ‘s’) or post on the forums to let us know.

Finally, our OC Contest is coming into the home stretch - and there’s PLvsPW artbooks and plenty of other swag still up for grabs!

So dust off your top hats and pick up your picarats, folks. A very special court is now in session.

Anonymous asked: hi, i'm sorry if this has been asked but in your powerpoint you said that the tumblr sj community is guilty of antisemitism. what kind of things has it done? also, i love your blog!





I’ll take this one since I’m the blog’s resident Jew.  Oy vey, where do I start…

  • SJ community loves to police Jewish identity and silence actual Jews when they talk about their own identities.  This usually happens in context of either “Are Jews White?” or “Jewishness is just a religion” conversations.  In reality, Jews are an ethnoreligious group that ethnically originated in the middle east, and while some ethnic Jews have light skin, it’s actually due to centuries of forced assimilation in European and Slavic countries through rape, which is a big reason why Jewishness is matrilineal.  Furthermore, there exist Jews who do not look white at all.  There are black, brown, and asian Jews who are all ethnically Jewish, and these conversations erase them.
  • "Jewish privilege".  Fact: It’s not a thing.  It’s actually a very common anti-semitic trope that says that Jews run everything so they are not oppressed.  Jews are oppressed, and face anti-semitic violence.
  • "Anti-semitism is not just about Jews, there are other semitic people." While yea, there are other semitic people, the term "anti-semitism" was created by Germans in the 19th century to refer specifically to the hatred of Jews because it sounded more scientific.
  • Blaming anti-semitic violence in Europe on the actions of Israel.  I see this literally every single day on this site, and it’s very upsetting.  Jews that live in the diaspora are not responsible for Israel’s actions, and especially should not be suffering at the hands of white people in Europe under the guise of anti-zionism.  
  • Finally, and this is a big pet peeve of mine.  The only people I ever see reblogging posts about anti-semitism are other Jews.  Even a lot of my non-Jewish followers will reblog posts about racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. but ignore posts about anti-semitism, and that as a Jew makes me feel unsafe. 

That’s enough for now.  If you’re interested in learning more about Jewish identity and anti-semitism, you are welcome to check out my personal blog: yochevedke.  I discuss that stuff a lot.  


Another Jew reblogging about anti-semitism. I’ve seen some increase in concern about this from goyim, but it’s been slow going. Hopefully we’ll pick up a big head of steam soon.

As a Jew, I’m actually terrified to talk about antisemitism when I see it, cause it’s been so belittled and minimized for me. 

Please call it out, guys, just like you would any other kind of bigotry or racism. 

Apologies for a political post in a fandom blog, but this is a rather personal issue with me. I’ve seen a lot of stuff on my dash lately that’s been skirting dangerously close to anti-Semitism, and I’ve been very uncomfortable about mentioning it, not wanting to become dogpiled by Tumblr SJ people who have never, even before this conflict started, cared about Jews. I used to even joke about it. I can’t anymore.

I don’t believe the recent rise of anti-Semitism in Europe is a coincidence, either. Your actions have consequences, guys. Think about what you’re saying. (Seriously, comparing the killings in Palestine to the Holocaust? Don’t. Do. That.)
