coffee never felt this good

Dear PW fandom,

SCREW YOU, I happen to like Apollo Justice. And Klavier. And hobo!Phoenix.

So there.

No love,

PS - And Trucy. I like Trucy too.

Finished PW3. It was epic. And awesome. And I kinda want to ship Phoenix/Iris (DEEP, DEEP DEEP, DEEP DOWN). Also, o-oh Godot, you nearly made me cry. :(

Err, my general impression has been that PW fandom *likes* Apollo, Klavier, Trucie, and thinks that Hobo Phoenix is hot but they want most of the plot to Die Inna Fire.
Because (spoilers) [A lot of fans find what was done with Phoenix and his character to be a bit too vicious and unnecessary. I would be in this camp, actually. I'm defensive about characters and really to have Nick lose his badge a mere 3 months after Case 5 of Trials and Tribulations? It leaves a bad, bad taste in my mouth. Then his presence in the game overshadows Apollo's and...I think the game's plot would have been a lot better if they had not given that role to Phoenix. Capcom wanted him in the game, but I would have been happy with a brief cameo as a witness or something. The whole thing seemed overly spiteful to me.]
I heard about all that and it makes sense. Only thing is, Phoenix has always been really cynical (PW2 comes to mind) and i can understand him becoming more cynical as time passes. The other bit about his end after Trial and Tribulations doesn't make as much sense though.
I can see him turning outwardly cynical makes sense in light of what happened to him, but it still seems to go against EVERYTHING YOU EVER WORKED FOR in games 1-3 and that just feels like a tremendous "FUCK YOU" to me as a player. Sometimes things like that make great plot twists and turning points...but in this case it just feels like a bitchslap for the sake of a bitchslap.
