They made a trailer of the final battle? Or is the final battle actually the beginning of the game?

Also is Xehanort(?) really Merlin or is Merlin Mickey infused with the soul of Riku in the Digital Realm?

I thought Yen Sid had the soul of Kairi captured in the body of Hercules.

Also did you know that all events in Kingdom Hearts 356/2 days are actually meant to be recorded and played backwards?

Just finished 2 on the PS4 version. Doing post-game content now. Then move onto Birth By Sleep.

Already finished 1 & COM on PS3. Need to hook up PS3 again to watch Re:Coded since it gives you trophies LUL

Need to pre-order on the XBOX ONE

The PS4 bundle is the best version so far ("Story So Far") but you:

- Wont play them
- Play them, get disgusted by the archaic mechanics
- Because KH1 is so old
- Try to KH2 and realise this isnt about Disney anymore (and also has the worst tutorial ever)
- Watch a story summary and realise that LOST made more sense
- Decide fuck KH3 and pick up Resident Evil 2 instead

You dont really need to play COM, its basically what happens between KH1 and 2, and by playing KH2 you already have a general idea.

Sora goes somewhere, deals with [some] Org13 members, gets shoved into the capsule, the end

Yeah, that's what I figured. I don't freak out over "you don't know everything you'll be lost!!" I'm pretty anti-handheld so all those DS/3DS games never interested me.

I do plan on running those HD movie summary things on the PS3 compilations in the background while I work for the trophies, though.  :lol

Dunno about the PS3 collections but the PS4/XB1 collections have Re:Chain Of Memories playable as a fully-3D game.  Can't remember if the 3D remake of it is something new or something they did on PS2 for one of the re-releases.

EDIT: It's on PS3 too.

I've got the PS3 and PS4 collections. The PS3 version has trophies for the summary movies of 358/2 and Re:coded. They removed them from the PS4 version.  :lol

I've just got 358/2 running in the background as I work. Kinda listening, kinda ignoring it.

COM on the PS2 was a standalone budget release. I bought that on clearance but never bothered playing it. Oh back in the day when I bought too many games.

Honestly, just playing 1, 2, BBS and 0.2 would be fine.

Hell, 0.2 has a really good text summary of BBS that would do the trick as well. 0.2 sets up KH3 and is only 2 hours long.

This is butter face: the videogame. The cutscenes look like late gen PS2 visuals with a framerate to match. The visuals and performance during gameplay is usually quite beautiful. Playing on Xbone X.

The dialog feels fit for 10 year olds, I wanna skip most cutscenes after an hour of this shit. Sora is 10/10 annoying.

Playing on proud difficulty, chose wisdom and warrior for my starting things.

About two hours in, skipping cutscenes entirely is the way to go. Game is very chaotic and fun to play.

Except the gameplay is complete and utter ass, with some of the worst camera work and jump mechanics mankind has ever wrought upon this world.

If the game didn't have Disney and FF on it, it wouldn't have gotten a sequel.

Oh wow, I'm literally in tears 5 hours into playing this.

It's actually the first GOOD FUCKING GAME SQUARE ENIX HAS MADE SINCE PS2 JC
Like instead of the last 2 generations of all these Japanese games and most western games trying for this cinematic dumbed down gameplay bullshit. This is literally pure KH gameplay++, you wanna fuse shit, you fuse shit, you wanna explore, you don't just run down a straight corridor, you want a million different keyblade finishers and spells and support actions and arghghh, you want flow action everywhere, YOU GOT IT.

It's basically a PS2 game on fucking steroids
AND IT'S GOOD.

Dream Drop Distance feels like such a half-assed effort playing this. This feels like what should've come after BBS. Really, really great so far and tons of throwbacks. This game basically says fuck newcomers, this is a game made for people who've been playing every entry since 2002.

GLORIOUS.

In a generation or two of so many let down sequels/finales to series (cough MGS4, Cold Steel 4, AC3, God of War 3, Dead Space 3, etc....pretty much every trilogy final game seems to turn out shit sadly), playing the opposite where it's a game that actually gets it right is making me so happy. Haven't had this much fun playing a videogame in a long, long time. Pure bliss. If I didn't have to work I'd stay up all night playing this. Makes me feel like a kid again.


Note that if I didn't know about the secret trick on PS4 Pro to get this to run at 60fps near locked the entire time I'd probably like it a lot less because the janky 45fps or 30fps framepacing. If you're playing on a PS4 Pro set your output resolution to 1080p and turn supersampling off; this turns the game from 1440p downsampled at 45fps to 1080p at 60fps. I feel bad for all the non-internet gamer people who will never find that out and never get to enjoy KH3 at 60fps where it feels and plays absolutely amazing. So.much.fun.

Also I'll admit I was a little hesitant at the start because boy does that new Utada song suck compared to the classics theme songs of the first two.
But if that's the only fault of KH3, I'll let it slide. It's not even that bad of a song, it just sounds like the edm dance hall remix of what should have been the KH3 song.

*edit* actually listened to it a few times and itís kinda growing on me...

Face My Fears deffo grew on me, and TBH I don't think anything will ever quite top Passion/Sanctuary. On top of that I was originally a bit disappointed by "slowness" of Don't Think Twice.

However, today I can only call Don't Think Twice a triumph. And combined, I think FmF and DTT stand up to the first two songs.

So I really liked Kingdom Hearts up until a certain point and I thought KH3 looked like the characters were thrown in an Unreal test map from what I saw of the first Olympus trailer and those weirdly hideous Instagram ADs.

Also 0.2 was a buggy mess that literally had spells+post processing effects that were extremely amateurish, it was a game that felt weird to play in a lot of ways.

I go to the redbox to switch out RE for KH3, and Iím blown away by just how damn good everything is.

This is like a legit old school SE game in terms of quality and depth. Even past stuff like flow motion, which really cheesed DDD, is perfect.

Those group attacks based on Disney rides are sweet too. Even on a base PS4, that lighting  :delicious

Also, so far in, the story is pretty basic and easy to follow.



Between RE2 and KH3, this year is already shaping up to be one of the best in a while.

I'm not really seeing much depth or variety with combat, encounters, or what you actually do moment to moment. Cutscene, mob of generic enemies show up, spam magic that's an elemental counter to enemies, hit the 80 button prompts that show up, mash attack to get those prompts back, and repeat.

Ive only put four hours into the game, but this is a very shallow RPG and a very shallow action game thus far. Its a beautiful and mindless game for me.

Also, the number of cutscenes that take you out of gameplay, only to show you an enemy you're going to fighting 15 seconds later....it's quite ridiculous.

Do you want to just hit AAAAAAA?

You have a lot of abilities between flow motion, dodging, wall-running, standard combo chain, parries, different types of magic that actually make differences now (flame enemies you can't touch until you cool them down), party member finishers, keyblade forms which branch into their own moves and finishers (3 keyblades real-time switching like a DMC-lite game), ride finishers, link attacks, etc....

Pre-battle strategy based on abilities and AP usage. Equipment modifiers.

Like on normal difficulty it doesn't push you to be varied, but it's a hell of a lot better than your typical action rpg where you have like a 3 hit slash and maybe a fire spell and a shield. On proud mode I'm sure you need to be more careful too.

But then again I thought BBS had pretty darn good arpg combat, so if you've never liked KH combat this won't change your mind. It's just KH but even better playing.
