^ Big Hero 6 is a must watch.  My absolute favorite Disney flick in recent memory.

I should probably grab that remaster compliation for PS4 so I can catch up on everything before jumping into this one.  I'm playing through 358/2 Days for the first time and I'm being sharply reminded how fucking dense the story for this series is.

I got it, it does somewhat help condensing some of the games into just cutscenes and a long story to read to be honest, though some part of me would still rather they reworked the games to be played on the PS4, because I'd like to play the actual 358/2 Days game.  But at least then you don't need to worry about Re:coded ever again.

Of course then for a compilation, it's still not the whole thing, since you got that way in the past prequel phone game, but at least 2.8's got the important stuff from that game covered too.

TBH, you're not missing much gameplay-wise in 358/2.  It's all mission-based so you're not allowed to actually explore any of the worlds, and for some reason they thought it would be a good idea to combine your items, magic, techniques, weapons, armor, and leveling up into the same incomprehensible "Resident Evil 4 attache case"-style equipment grid system.

I remember Square making a survey for KH feedback and in one of the sections I added for past Organization XIII members that were killed in CoM to have more backstory on who they were.  Seeing Larxene again is making me happy that we will finally get to know more about them.

I also like how the keychains do more than just give buffs and skills to the Keyblade and instead changes the whole combat melee attacks completely.

When are we getting a trailer for the Big Hero 6 world?
Tokyo Game Show most likely.

I don't often ogle at game graphics, it being not very high on my list of criteria for a good game, but god damn does it impress me how the Disney characters resemble their movies and surpass in some cases.  And wow, was that a 358/2 Days manga reference there by Demyx?  Unexpected.  The only time I recall that they've really "hung out" would be in that when the whole Organization was on break under a blanket and Vexen ruined it for everyone.

Gotta be honest, there's not much more they can do to make me want this game any more that I already do or sway others in either direction, though.  At this point all these trailers are doing are spoiling pretty neat plot points.  I mean, good that they're addressing things like the Lingering Will but save some surprises for the game, yeah?

I fully expect the scene with Donald to equally be a fake-out just like with Goofy in KHII and they'll likely call back to the ridiculousness of it too.  They're not going to permanently kill off a Disney character.  Not unless they're a parent.  Donald's only uncle-grade material.

...Though that does mean if they introduce Max into the games finally, it's all fair game to actually kill off Goofy this time, I guess.

I guess we skipped over the previous news, but Skrillex of all people was brought on board to work with Utada making a NEW theme song for the game, unrelated to "Don't Think Twice" shown previously.  Which they played here in this new trailer, but might as well also share the opening trailer they posted last week too.



I have nothing against the guy himself, beyond actually naming himself after the Organization XIII motif I guess, but Skrillex's music stylings just so do not match the tone of the game or video.  While I can enjoy the electronic parts of previous openings, that whole thing with the bass dropping this one just makes me cringe in disappointment.  Others seem to be liking it though so what do I know?

Also the game's been leaked up online, so it's rather hard to properly go about to gauge people's options on news knowing people are spoiling it in the comments on videos and news sites, but there was this notice from Nomura.
