I'm glad they added again AI partners for KH3. It was a cool feature that for some stupid reason they dropped after KH2. And no, I don't count the pets from the 3DS version, they were worthless. I like that I can choose which attacks they can use, which abilities they have and when they use them.

Did anyone else get a kick out of the new trailer? I mean, Attacking enemies with amusement park rides like the Pirate Ship and a little kid's train ride? I couldn't help but laugh at that. It's so ridiculous that it makes me want this game even more!

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that the boat and train are references to The Main Street Electrical Parade (http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Street_Electrical_Parade). Which is kinda cool because that parade kicked ass, but still...

The footage that they're showing is prettt underwhelming, though. Just by looking at it, it looks like a PS2 title, and everything else looks extra lazy. They literally lifted the map from Twilight Town in KHII for the demo. Not really impressed so far.

The KH remix was amazing, so I had high expectations about it. I can't search for a sample at this moment, but can you put a link to a OST? If it's a 13th boss battle or Vanitas boss battle soundtrack, even better.

How did I not know they released OST for both remixes?

Searching local download place...

EDIT: Oh wait it won't be out until next month. Eh.

Searching Youtube vids...

EDIT 2: Someone actually got the ost a month early. Cool.

They're orchestrated arrangements not remixes. Of course they're going to sound the same. They just add some new instruments here and there.

So far Byte Bashing is the only song I found inferior. They removed the main and best part about it.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Berry on October 06, 2014, 06:27:47 PM
I know, just saying that some of them don't really sound improved at all, and some sound worse as they did change some things in some of them (Pride Lands battle theme is missing some parts during its later part in the loop and it feels empty). The 1.5 one felt better tbh

OMG. OMG. 13th Dilemma remix is fucking awesome. And the rest of them are too. I hope they put the BBB music soon.

I myself am still waiting for a PSVita release. I would rather be able to play those games with the PSVita.

Also, that's not the OST, apparently (referring to the link put before). And some musics are still missing, like 13th Struggle (it appears in 1.5, but the one in Chain of Memories is different from the one in KH2, the same happens with the Disappeared in KH1 and KH2). Still a good option to go, but I will obviously download the official OST when it comes out.

Edit: So apparently for the BBS side, since the majority of music already used orchestra, it means they didn't get a new version. Only the Keyblade Graveyard and Dismiss (boss battle music of Aqua vs Possessed Terra with that Heartless in his back similar to Ansem) have been remixed, or at least that's what people is saying. I already heard the first one and is quite good, but god, I can't find the second one.

I guess they did. Seeing that the Disney Big Hero 6 was originally based off of a Marvel Comic property, I would love to at least see one Marvel Comics reference in the form of some one who fits in well with the world of Disney BH6 (*cough* Tony Stark *cough), but that is only wishful thinking.

Post by: Long John Killer on August 17, 2015, 06:58:12 AM
Barring one long side story of that being a natural Heartless, Baymax being a real boy and chasing a Baymax Nobody around Twilight Town, just seems to be a copy made to fight.  Maybe impersonate him for a bit and get the real Baymax into some trouble would be my guess.

I'm more curious about flying around riding on him.  If it'll be a fight-tied event or if you can just hop on like II's skateboards and fly around the world.

They should have sticked with the PS consoles from the beginning instead of going for 3DS first for KH:DDD. Le sigh. And the PSVita needs more love ffs.

Oh well, a new game (or rather part of ) means new OST, and the OST of KH has never disappointed me.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Mgbenz on September 15, 2015, 03:51:11 PM
I have absolutely no regrets buying and playing KH3D on the 3DS. The game's system was actually prefect for the handheld.

And will have no regrets buying this and playing it again either too though I have no idea how they will incorporate all the touch screen functions on the PS4.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Moon Girard on September 15, 2015, 04:05:37 PM
This doesn't really seem worth it if they plan to charge $60 for it. I seem to recall DDD being terrible because of the drop system, Back Cover is just a movie and A Fragment Passage is probably like 2 hours i like Aqua but not enough to spend $60 for a extra prologue story with her unless they make some changes to DDD which it doesn't seem like they will outside of the touchscreen stuff.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Mgbenz on September 15, 2015, 04:21:32 PM
The drop system was a bit problematic at the very early parts of the game but it becomes only a slight nuisance once you get the drop time increasing item later in the game. You can actually use it to your advantage by exploiting the bonuses it gives.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: 1Ultima on September 15, 2015, 04:23:24 PM
The Drop System is alright if you stock up on Drop-Me-Nots. But it means fighting Julius and Young Xehanort again and :gonk:
The X movie is pointless imo because why not just include it in Unchained X?
I don't care about any of the BBS characters that aren't Happy Roxas so w/e

I'll pick this up but I'm not super hyped for it.

My problem with the Drop system was that it could happen during boss fights and it would restart the fight from the beginning when it happened but i never realized there was a item to restore the drop gauge maybe i should go back and finish the game now.

Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Nanashi_1337 on September 15, 2015, 06:24:22 PM
The Drop system was one of the worst parts of the game. It completely broke the flow of the story when you were doing one character, it interrupted fights resetting them, and the rewards you get when you drop aren't worth the trouble it brings. This should have been a system you could have used voluntary to switch between characters, not force you to switch for no reason other than to annoy you. It is specially annoying when you are lvl. 1, as the fights against bosses can take a lot and having a time limit stuck in your ass doesn't help at all when you do hardly damage.

DDD was a really disappointing game in some gameplay aspects, but I already commented it long ago so I don't want to touch it again. It's not a bad game, but I would never rate this game higher than KH1, KH2 or KHBBS. I would even rate it lower than KHCoM if I didn't suck at using the card system LOL.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: 1Ultima on September 15, 2015, 06:46:38 PM
Between the Drop System and tying abilities to Dream Eaters for some Nintendogs ripoff minigame, i can understand why you don't like 3D.

Days' gameplay wasn't that good either (panels and shit) Only reason i still like it is because Roxas (and Xion but shhh. Apparently you're not supposed to like her)
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Nanashi_1337 on September 15, 2015, 06:53:25 PM
Days was the worst KH game ever made. I didn't find anything in the game's gameplay that I would enjoy, and the story wasn't even that interesting. The PS3 version of KH2 that gives you the summary of that storyline is plenty enough honestly.

And I didn't say I didn't like 3D. I had fun with it, it's just that its gameplay was definitely worse than in other games in some aspects which was really disappointing. The Dream Eaters were okay in some parts, damn annoying in others.

INGDOM HEARTS χ [chi] Back Cover
[…]It is a full story about the mystery of the Foretellers happening on the other side of the PC Browser/Smartphone games KINGDOM HEARTS Chi & Unchained Chi that is being recorded as a fully HD video work. It is an important story that expands on the future of the KINGDOM HEARTS series.

KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage –
[…]Immediately after KH3D, as Sora prepares for the final battle, the King confesses a lot of things that were kept secret. It is the subsequent story of one person named Aqua left behind in the Realm of Darkness that is finally told.

Forgot about this topic, wondering now if I should have just put the news and speculation over the 2.9 leak here.  Oh well.

Though speaking of speculation, I've noticed that Kingdom Hearts has now joined Disney Infinity.  There's a King Mickey costume (http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/disney/images/d/df/King_Mickey_Costume_-_Disney_Infinity_3.0.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20150816225501) for it and you unlock the Keyblade with whatever special properties that has in that game if you've played with everyone once from 3.0. (http://cdn.gamerant.com/wp-content/uploads/Disney-Infinity-3.0-Ultimate-Unlock-is-Kingdom-Hearts-Keyblade.jpg)  Which leaves me to wonder if KH3 will include any bonuses or easter eggs for using Infinity figures with it.  Even if it's something like a toy skin for whoever's on, so they look more like the toys to life version as shown in Infinity rather than their more detailed form in KH3.

The Kingdom Hearts III footage didn’t introduce a new world, but it did showcase a new Heartless and Nobody, as well as a new Attraction Flow attack seemingly based on Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. There’s also the complete version of the chess scene between young Xehanort and young Eraqus from the previous trailer.

The upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue package includes Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts Chi: Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage. The latter is a completely new title that leads up to the events of Kingdom Hearts III. The new trailer showed Riku, Kairi, and Mickey together at Yen Sid’s place.

That was an early installment weirdness thing. It never happens throughout the series ever since.

Well that rarely matters because(Series spoiler)

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

so again...

But god, I'm STILL hoping for my wish since KHII to have Riku and Kairi as Keyblade Warrior party members for KHIII(even if it is just a final level thing).
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread

They wouldn't hype up Kairi being a keyblade master and not make her playable or event at least a party member at some point.

This. That's kinda my biggest worry thus far.
It doesn't help that BBS basically made Aqua Kairi's "teacher" kinda sorta(in the same way Terra has a connection with Rikku and Sora is defaulted with Ven for obvious reasons) putting around even more hype since Aqua was the first female playable Keyblade Warrior that didn't disappoint so yeah.

Kingdom Hearts III and HD 2.8

New trailers for Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue will be released tomorrow, Square Enix announced.

The contents of the trailers were not detailed, but they’re likely the same trailers that were showcased at D23 Expo Japan 2015 in November. We recently got a seven-second glimpse of the Kingdom Hearts III trailer.

And it only took a month.

The traitor is the sixth missing foreteller who became Xehanort's master and gave him the missing page. That's why Xehanort knows about the future and why he has his keyblade.


That's my theory anyway.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Demitri on December 19, 2015, 04:52:05 PM
I wanted to believe that but it can't be that simple. Eraqus was a light freak. I feel like a traitor would sway his pupils to be like him and mold them as such.
I think it's some random time traveller from way back, maybe the one who put the world in KHX to sleep to begin with, idk. but then again, there's a time inconsistency with Xehanort's age (BBS Secret Ending where he's "trapped" on Destiny Islands vs KH3 trailers where he's young and already with his master and eraqus)
this would also parallel Xehanort and Sora some more, and as KH3D showed, Sora was manipulated by some time traveling Ansem SoD Xehanort

I have plenty of other ideas but i'm kinda just wanting to be surprised when 3 comes out :P

The Dream Drop Distance gameplay doesn't have the drop gauge that's good news.

Taking into account that the only thing that the drop system offered was that after X time you would be forced to switch characters, which caused current missions and bosses to reset back to the beginning, I'm not bloody surprised it was scratched. I'm not even sure why they thought it was a good idea from the very beginning. Interrupting the flow of the game and making you switch characters when you don't want to by force was something that made me hate that game.

They should also drop the mechanic that makes your guardian beasts die if you don't ressurrect them after some time, but perhaps that's too much to ask from them.

Kingdom Hearts @KINGDOMHEARTS
    As we don't have any news for #KHIII, Nomura-san would like to offer everyone a sneak peek at Guard Form - a new Drive Form!

    Kingdom Hearts @KINGDOMHEARTS
    The Guard Form shield mentioned earlier was transformed from the Keyblade of Herc's Shield which has been shown previously.

    Kingdom Hearts @KINGDOMHEARTS
    This power form was edited as it is the Keyblade from a world that hasn’t been released yet, so it has changed into a hammer shape.

Don't forget the glitches and freezes that has happened within 1.5 and 2.5...
I hope they carry over the Save Transfer system from FFX/X-2 remaster as well.

And I really do find it pretty funny how much they are hyping Aqua's part in 2.8 since it was mainly just the KH3D otherwise. Now I'm honestly curious to what exactly Aqua does that's massively important between BBS and 3D.

1.5 contains 1 and some spinoffs, 2.5 contains 2 and some other spinoffs, both are for PS3. 2.5 doesn't contain 1.5's content. There isn't a package with both of them.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on November 03, 2016, 01:04:45 AM

Yet.  There isn't one yet, but if you feel like holding off for a bit, there's this to go with 2.8 on the PS4.

Of course, 358/2 Days and Re:coded are still just revamped cutscenes, so if you need to play those you're going to need to seek out the original sources, but you don't really need to play those.  358/2 if you really love the Organization, but the cutscenes explain the important stuff, of course.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Macaulyn97 on November 03, 2016, 03:18:14 AM
I'd hold for 2.8 if I knew I'd have money for a PS4 as well. I'll just stick with 2.5, but thanks for the info.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Xhominid on November 03, 2016, 03:36:11 AM
1.5 is Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Chain of Memories Remix(the updated version that came from the PS2 version) and 358/2 Days.

2.5 is Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, Birth By Sleep Final Mix, and Re:Coded Final Mix(which was a mobile game redone up)

Honestly, the story is sadly really tied to ALL OF THEM(to the point where they can't even be called spinoffs but weird levels of sequels and prequels). Not helping by the Final Mixes usually having extra scenes the originals never had

2.8 is Dream Drop Distance and now Aqua's sidestory that either shows what she does after BBB but before DDD or it's actually after DDD and the prologue to Kingdom Hearts 3.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Snakebyte on November 03, 2016, 10:34:57 AM
One of these days I will have the willpower to get into this series.

I want to, but 1's gameplay...
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: 1Ultima on November 03, 2016, 07:27:44 PM
1's gameplay is garbage but don't let that put you off. It's still playable and a decent experience.
2's gameplay is easily the best of the whole series though.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Nanashi_1337 on November 03, 2016, 07:48:26 PM
Come on, 1's gameplay wasn't that bad, I still play the PS2 version from time to time and I still enjoy it (and really, nobody complained that much until we got 2's superior gameplay). Frankly, it's my favourite because while the gameplay has its shortcomings (specially in platform sections), the fights were done taking into account that gameplay and it worked really well, and the story was the best in the series IMO. I honestly was moved after playing the game. KH2... not so much in some aspects.

And frankly, Sephiroth fight in KH was far better than in KH2. Still my favourite secret boss fight in the entire game, with a really epic scene before the fight. The majority of the current ones punish you excessively if you make a mistake. The worst example of all was Mysterious Figure which is infamous for obvious reasons. Spending 30 minutes spamming dodge was not enjoyable at all (and good luck winning with Terra, took me more than a hundred attempts to achieve this). At least Vanitas' Sentiment let you some breathing room in several parts. 3D only had one really boring one, so I hope 2.8 has a good one, if there's one.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread

Honestly i find 1's gameplay to be slow as shit. I get its supposed to show that Sora's just starting out, but still.
I will admit that the KH1 Sephiroth fight is superior to the KH2 version. And fuck Mysterious Figure forever
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Snakebyte on November 04, 2016, 01:06:32 AM
I've tried to get into 1 like 3 times now and failed. I can deal with the normal gameplay despite it being bad, but the gummi ship crap has killed me every time. I've learned enough about the story, mainly through watching 358/2 Days cutscenes from 1.5 and crying like a bitch, that I am interested enough to push my way through it though. At some point. Probably.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on November 04, 2016, 03:15:35 AM
Having somewhat recently gotten a PS3, played through all of 1.5 and even more recently just beat II Final Mix, as near perfect as II's gameplay can be, I echo there's some serious attachment I have to the first game.

There's a smoothness to the flow of combat that II's higher speeds and more irratic actions just don't mimic quite as well.  There's something I just love about tech points through not just defending but reflecting attacks by taking risks.  There's more to the individual Disney worlds, which II counters with more worlds and more diverse choices like Tron of all places to learn I'd love to explore, but the original game is the only one to get The Little Mermaid down right.  Outside gameplay, the story's more compact and feels complete when you defeat Ansem and close the titular Kingdom Hearts, rather than...opening another door called Kingdom Hearts, but not the exact same one you closed before but also not the heart-shaped moon also borrowing the same name, to go fight an unfeeling copy of the last boss.  Both are emotional in their own ways, but I cared more for the characters throughout in the first adventure.  The second's all covered in mystery and confusion with names and faces stolen left and right, that you don't really connect until after it all plays out.  I'd venture that Chain of Memories was more emotional in the end, actually, but then CoM wasn't a happy tale to begin with, was it?

That all said, leveling up from simple beginnings in II to being able to endlessly fly everywhere is bliss, the original's sense of flying doesn't compare.  II was the best progression the series could ask for in gameplay.

Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on November 04, 2016, 04:05:32 AM
Sora dying for a bit in the first game,  The moment Simple and Clean starts when Destiny Islands breaks off from the Heartless world in the first game's ending,  Kairi drawing a response to Sora's doodle of giving her a fruit in that same ending.  Xion accepting her fading from all existance and Roxas' confusion over it all, Sora returning Kairi's seashell charm as she helps him up.  Just to name a few.

It's not exactly Steven Universe but it has its share of moments.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Person Man on November 04, 2016, 04:53:53 AM
To be perfectly fair though there are a LOT of moments in this series that are clearly intended to be heavy and emotional that are completely sandbagged by the fact that Donald Damn Duck is standing two feet off to the side yukking it up.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Berry on November 04, 2016, 06:44:59 AM
Or the terrible dialogue and writing.

The Simple and Clean moment in KH1 worked well since it was done fairly well as it had great visuals, and it had no dumb dialogue to drag it down, just a good reaction from Kairi seeing Sora's drawing and the music playing, it's really nice, I wish I could say other emotional moments in the series were done that well but sadly a lot of them really get ruined because of the dialogue.

Well you're certainly the first person I've seen who actually thinks Haley as Sora is lame. He's a great voice actor (especially his performance as Vanitas) it's just Sora's not the kind of character that is meant for powerful emotional scenes unless it's a voiceless cutscene like the KH1 ending. He's like the Disney characters in a way.

haley when he was younger did a good performance as him in KH1, but after that it just sounds like he's phoning it in once he gets a deeper voice imo he lacks any depth to the character and doesn't really impress with his performance as well as the other characters

Was it ever explained what the deal was with the new outfit with the red hood?  At first I placed it as a regional variant, your usual different look for Halloween Town, Atlantica, Tron and the such.  But he's kept it over multiple worlds.  So then I figured it was to replace the KHII outfit. But that keeps showing up now and then too.  I don't think it's the same deal as KHII's post-prologue initial moments with Sora stuck in his KHI clothes.  Part of their reasoning for the new outfit was that it magically changes his looks to fit in that specific world anyways, so it seems weird to want to replace it.

Also it's funny how amazing Hades, Pete and Maleficent look now.  Odd to see such old Disney cartoons so highly detailed.  Didn't see much of Hercules but he's in there too.

But yeah, hyped as usual, still looking great, glad to see more news is coming relatively soon for a change.

Jesus, the Toy Story characters look directly lifted out of their movie into this.  It's surreal.  And then there's Sora looking...I dunno, a little less impressive with this transformation than other worlds.  Whatever, it's still cool.

So I don't think it was shown before in other worlds, but for this trailer what I'd assume is their initial opening cutscene getting into the Toy Story world shows them also having that world's Keyblade automatically from the start.  I actually kind of rather like that.  There was something fun about getting a new key chain for completing a world, then using it in the next unrelated world, like beating Tarzan then using the Jungle King in Hercules, but later on you'll find yourself preferring one key chain over any others you get.  This makes them all get some spotlight.

Or I'm just looking way too deep into that.  Anyways, the Keyblade concept's cool, half Buzz and half Woody themed.

I am pleased one of Buzz's MP moves is his crazy spin move from the SNES game.

I am also pleased that the timelime takes place between Toy Story 1 and 2.

New trailer, Monsters Inc. world confirmed:



Looks like Ariel's been made into a summon this time around, which hopefully means we won't have to deal with another underwater level again.  Fucking finny fun...

I still feel in the minority that loved just how different the world for Little Mermaid was in the first game, that to revisit that in here would have given a pass for the music nonsense II had.  Ah well, probably for the best instead of dividing people further.  I noticed Sora's monster disguise changes color, wonder what it means.

Anyways, that's only one trailer.  They posted two today, the second one's previewing Hikaru Utada's new theme song for the game "Don't Think Twice" with a little bit of older Riku at the end.


Wow, though, he's practically a different character by this point, changing the face, hair and clothes.  Am I forgetting Way to the Dawn breaking at the end of Dream Drop Distance or is this new?

I was kinda hoping to avoid spoiling hearing the song for the first time until the game dropped and having the proper context for the opening and closing of the game, but like hell I was going to be able to resist waiting for practically a year.  I like it.

Sora's colour and outfit change depending on which Keyblade form he's using. In the monster inc. world his fur changes colour instead.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on February 11, 2018, 12:17:45 AM
Hm, but after losing the KHII outfit and obtaining this new one we've seen him get for this game, it has remained the same between different keyblades across Hercules, Tangled and other worlds, so that can't be it. Never mind, I was focusing on the single regular Kingdom Key keyblade.  Duh, the other forms, the shield and stuff.  You're right.

Also, as I mentioned above (Yet 7 freaking months ago, this drought is killing me slowly), it appears the keyblade's form might be changing specifically to tie into that world at the beginning, rather than picking which one you use?  Not that that's confirmed, but it does appear that way upon inspection.

That all said, his eyes are green when talking with Marluxia, which is certainly odd.  Could just be the lighting, though.  Speaking of Marluxia, Xemnas and Xehanort's Heartless turned out a little funky looking dropping a layer of the cartoon aesthetic used prior, but Marluxia's looking just fine.  I hope the others are touched up to a similar degree now.

Wreck-it Ralph better not be represented in summon only!!!
I need a Wreck-it Ralph world in my life!
Like, seriously, just imagine the possibilities! Just imagine how many ways this game could possibly go with a Wreck-it Ralph world!
Heck, maybe they can make older Final Fantasy games cameo in that world as well.
Or heck, maybe even Square's pre-FF games! Like, holy shit, the possibilities are never ending!

New trailer:



I still haven't actually seen Frozen, so IDK how much I should care about this one.  When are we getting a trailer for the Big Hero 6 world?

Also, the official release date is now set for January. (https://nerdist.com/kingdom-hearts-3-release-date-ratatouille/)
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on June 11, 2018, 12:55:14 AM
You still got 7 months.  Now that the hype has died from the original and Frozen 2 is still some distance off, should go see it.  When the world's not breathing down your neck for expectations one way or another, it's a pretty good Disney movie, personally better than a good number of their catalogue.

On the flip side, I haven't seen Big Hero 6.  I just had no confidence in them pulling through with their own take on Marvel superheroes.  But hey, guess I was wrong there.

A slight bit disappointing the date's later than we were hoping for, but the beginning of next year isn't the end of the world compared to the end of this one.  Also, what the heck happened to their audio for this trailer?  Should have left the sound effects, just a little muted, because just the voices over the song sounds so bad.

Mentioned this in the E3 thread, but seeing Larxene's going to be a Xehanort host, here's hoping she's more practically useful to the plot.  As fun as all the Organization members were conceptually, the majority of them didn't to a whole hell of a lot.  And poor Aqua....I was hoping we'd get to save her.  Not that that's not still an option, but still, we might have to kill her now.  I hope not, Xion was more than enough.

I still don't know if I like what they've done with Ansem and Xemnas in this game.  Something about their models just looks off, and it's just them now compared to everyone else.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread

^ 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.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on June 11, 2018, 01:09:45 AM
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.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Person Man on June 11, 2018, 01:20:03 AM
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.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Kirishima on June 11, 2018, 01:41:11 AM
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.

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.

I really hope the new boss is Sephiroth.... I feel like he should have been in this game. One final fight with him before moving on to another major FF antagonist in KH4 or something....

But, alas, I doubt that will happen.

Playable Kairi would've been nice, but we all know that's never gonna happen.  She was such an utter disappointment in KHIII.   All these years and all these different games hyping Kairi up as being so important and going on and on about how she's going to train with the Keyblade so she can become an equal to Sora and Riku and she is never once elevated beyond "helpless damsel" status.  I don't think they ever even showed her actually using her Keyblade in the whole damn game.
Title: Re: Kingdom Hearts General Thread
Post by: Long John Killer on June 10, 2019, 08:17:27 PM
I really don't get what was the thought process behind Kairi.  There was a plain path of building up the character laid out throughout the games.  At least have a scene showing an attempt at proving herself and failing like Axel, but no, they quite literally fridged her.  Quoting "You need some further motivation" and all.  But we're supposed to feel sorry for Xehanort in the end?  Nah, mate.

Oblivion and Oathkeeper, or at the very least just the latter due to story relevance between 1 and 2 just being up and missing this game seemed wrong too, regardless of Roxas showing up with them in the story or not.  Guess that explains it.

DLC's out or soon to be in a few hours.

Loving the remixed boss themes, tho a bit too dramatic for my tastes.  There are individual themes for some such as Data Xigbar.

Secret boss is Yozora as speculated and that there are ending routes this time.

I don't particularly get why the Xbox version of the DLC was pushed back a whole month more, the base games came out at the same time, but as I ended up playing that version I guess I'm stuck avoiding spoilers for a month.  Which is fine I guess for me, I still need to finish my Critical playthrough anyways beforehand, but that still sucks.
