Oh snap, nice find!

In closing with Game Informer, Tetsuya Nomura left with his usual teaser for the events to come; "The end also means a new beginning, and I'm certain that as this story arc ends, players will be able to look forward -- carrying this excitement -- for something new and different, never-before-seen in the series".

I'll try to keep my body ready, Nomura.

Oh right... I forgot this thread was a thing. Since I'm playing 1.5 I should prally post here more often.

Also, Vexen is tough cookies. Stupid shields... But imma beat him just watch! Just gotta grind for some extra health... and level 9 cards... and CP.... and more cards... oh boy.



I'm lookin' forward to 2.5, but since I don't think I'll get next gen... or current gen, or whatever you wanna call it, I'm not as excited for KH 3.

Reviving because I'm in complete KH mode right now. Returned to 1.5 Remix, finished Proud mode, got hit with feels and nostalgia during the ending I haven't seen in a decade, then made Ultima Weapon and cleared all the superbosses. Everything's done sans collecting all of Donald and Goof's weapons and a few accessories. Finally ready to move on to 2.5 Remix AND OH BOY CRITICAL MODE TIME.

Tonight's been fun. Gonna be more fun. Gonna get shit sleep and wake up feeling like shit tomorrow so I can draw and hurry up and get back to KH. Am I the only one in these forums who's going nuts on Kingdom Hearts right now?
Spoiler! :
Even if not I don't care, I just felt like gushing. I gave up getting Bloodborne this week for this. The fanboyism is real.


*EDIT*
Oh god I forgot about having to drudge through the Roxas stuff at the beginning. Hopefully I make it to Sora tonight.

If you've played 358/2, you'd understand why that roxas part is significant. And I mean played, that cutscene only version did not do justice to it.

It's not that I don't know how significant it is, I just don't enjoy Roxas and his pals enough to care for the mundane slice-of-life stuff early on. I like it more when the actual plot starts picking up around the mansion and Axel's appearance and whatnot, though, and the Struggle Tournament is cool. (Especially seeing Setzer and Vivi.)
Just hate the job grinding and mystery-solving. I used to be a lot more bitter towards Roxas and the intro, and while I don't totally hate on them anymore I still find it dull for a good while.

I was hype when 2.5 came out. And then there was only rage.

Have fun with Critical Mode, it made a man out of me.

I'm both fearful and hopeful that it'll be brutal. Proud mode in the first game was fun but overall not very hard once the ball got rolling. It probably helps that I chose the Shield at the beginning, (and did so again in 2,) but I was still hoping for it to be more brutal. It ended up feeling about as hard as it did when I was younger. Guess all Proud did was balance out with how I've generally improved at these games since I was a kid. Hell, I couldn't even beat Sephiroth and Phantom back then, but now I cleared them out as well as Unknown, (who was easier than Sephiroth, oddly enough.)

Yeah don't worry, KH2 Critical Mode is brutal. I didn't even need to hit the max level to 100% KH1 on the hardest difficulty, and for KH2 I found that even at max level I was getting rekt with end game stuff. I found the bosses in KH2 to be like DMC bosses, in which they're almost impossible to beat without figuring out a pattern and easier once you do.

Except for Lingering Will. He will straight up fuck you in the asshole.

Hoooboy, sounds good.
And bad.
Spoiler! :
And like it'll make my friends rage, since they had a lot more trouble with Proud mode in 1.5 than I did, yet we've all more or less sworn to do Critical together and immediately ostracize and poke fun at anyone who backs out.

It's definitely been brutal so far. Went for Land of Dragons first and ran out of potions and money in Beast's Castle. Thankfully his majesty saved my ass fighting the Door things.
What really has me shaking in my boots is remembering how Cure in KH2 eats your entire MP Bar no questions asked. Keeping myself alive will be endlessly more difficult than in the first game.
What have I done.



Spoiler! :
Also I'm not gonna lie; even without watching/playing Days I have more appreciation for Roxas and his shitty life during the beginning of 2. The mundane slice of life stuff only added to the impact of him realizing his perceived life is a lie that'll end as soon as Sora wakes up. I feel for the poor bastard differently than when I was an edgy teenager hating on him, but I could still do without having to play through that intro ever again.

Yeah if you want to stay alive you need to master Guard and Reflect, they stop you from taking lethal damage in most boss fights. Some limits are alright as well, but they're not as broken as KH1 and CoM.

Oh man, if you feel sorry for Roxas now you should watch 358/2 Days. THE FEELS MAN

Speaking of Kingdom Hearts, I really need to finish Birth By Sleep. I really like the story and combat, but the realization that I have to repeat the same stupid mini-games on 3 different characters made me stop playing it. I think the game would be ok if you weren't a completionist but I always am when it comes to games like that.

Ah Birth by Sleep, probably my favorite entry in the series and easiest to break with command melding if you know what you are doing.

Xion did nothing wrong ;-;


God I can't wait for KH3. The second it gets a release date I'm buying a PS4, without question. It's gonna be amazing, I know it.

Did anyone here like Re: Coded? I feel like I'm in the minority. I mean, yes, the story was absolutely unnecessary and didn't advance the plot whatsoever but damn did I love the gameplay. They borrowed the Birth By Sleep gameplay and changed it around to make some really unique gameplay. The game felt fast and fluid which I really enjoyed. I never got a chance to play Birth By Sleep (though I watched enough streams when it came out that it's impossible for me not to know the story and gameplay) but it felt like the next best thing, at least until 3D came out.

YES GOOD LORD.
I had to completely abandon 100%ing that game. The Ice Cream Rhythm mini game in particular is what did it to me. I mean at the end of the day I've decided I only really care about being super-completionist with the core titles, I prolly won't bother trying to do everything in 3D, either.
But yeah, BBS is brutal. I'm so mad at myself for wanting to replay it, too. When I finished that game I told myself I was done but now that HD+Final Mix BBS is staring me in the face it's tempting to try playing it again sometime. Just for the finales and Mirage Arena. It's a damn shame they didn't add online multiplayer to it, though.

Don't even get me started, dude. Lea wielding a keyblade, Xehanort ready to fuck shit up, new weapons for Sora, hopefully a playable Kairi and/or return of Aqua, DAT PS4 TECH AND DEM GAWJUSS GRAFIX, and all that said Kingdom Hearts is Nomura's baby, even in this modern gaming generation full of bittersweet releases, disappointment and games that fail to live up to their promises, I have full faith in Nomura to make sure this game is prisfuckingtine before releasing it.
