So, Suikoden III. Great Suikoden game or the greatest?
V is the best Suikoden, so I guess by process of elimination III is only great. :p

The loading times compounded on the 8 hour prologue ruined V for me sadly.  I wanted to love it, but I do regret not giving it another go.

I'm hoping for a miracle that the PSN version of Suiko II sells 2 million copies then they finally make Suikoden 6 starring Yuber, spear-headed by Kojima Productions (why not).

^ Perfect.
And so is this (especially if the 'roots' to the original Zelda's idea of 'exploration' is in tact)


I do hope they create some more exotic looking locations.  This was pretty but I'd love to see more!  ...It certainly doesn't help the footage was potato quality.

Both games can (politely) rot in hell for making me pursue the magical 108 and missing some fucker like 30 stars back that can't be got again.

Aww, Troy Baker voicing Drake's brother, so appropriate (for some reason)!

Very nice, can't wait to get it...and a PS4 to play it on

I find this funny because I have always been of the camp that 7 should not be remade.


Well for starters they probably should have just called it "Final Fantasy VII" instead of "Final Fantasy VII Returns" (that's literally what they're calling it).  Who the heck gives a straight port a new title?

Mind you I'm also in the camp that they shouldn't remake it.

The "Returns" is stupid as hell.

But yeah, the game should be given a "facelift", but not remade.  It's like the "Citizen Kane" of RPGs and it shouldn't be tampered with (I say this mainly because a lack of faith in their ability to 'duplicate' the experience).

I kinda like the general series topics for older titles.
I really wanna play this one again...

You too, sometimes

You really hate me, do you? :3

Silly Dice.

Not really, you can just be incredibly difficult to talk with

Quoting myself, but the fan reaction between when people thought it was a "remake" to just an upscaled port for FF7 is PRICELESS:

HMM.  It's upscaled, allegedly (thankfully not remake).

Kingdom Hearts II and some BBS

I've waited a while to replay this game to give it a fair assessment.  I remember blazing through it when I first played it on the normal difficulty.  I've also been playing it along BBS.

= I can say with 100% guarantee, BBS is still a stronger title despite the 'look' and 'feel' of handheld.  WHat I mean by that is when you play KH2, you see that it is SUCH a huge budgetted title.  EVERYTHING had love put into it; the worlds are impeccably detailed, the models move along beautifully, the magical effects are always in top form, etc.  Little things too long creating Winnie the Pooh's "100 Acre Woods" as a world inside a book, or of course the Tron world.  But...

= ... there's a slight reliance on such spectacle.  BBS is a played-straight action title; you can perform combos, fire of magic or super attack skills, use the shot-lock command, transform yourself into elemental-powered super forms, perform d-links to connect with other character's attacks.  You do most of the action.  KHII is where you can set up some really lame spells, use items, perform TRIANGLE-mashes to get out of a pinch, press "X" a bunch to get out of other problems, and summon commands.  I know KHII is older, I just wish it didn't take so long to establish the BBS formula as it so brilliantly played out in both BBS and 3D.

= While I like how brilliantly designed the levels of KH2 are, I still think the size and scope of 3D is the most impressive in the series.  The Hunchback level literally including every aspect of the film it's based on and recreating Notre Dame itself; and the new version of Traverse Town being MASSIVE in size.

= Honest to god I can't help but roll my eyes a little when Organization 13 stuff happens.  For one, because it's so out of line with ANYTHING Disney whatsoever.  But also... I mean... It's literally a bunch of 'nobodies' designed to look/act cool with little story relevance because the main players are doing their thing (like all 8 versions of Ansem).  Certainly their matching attire doesn't help making players play "who's who" in the meanwhile.  For a series with a needlessly complicated plot, throwing an "organization" of 13 members is just the beginning of that clusterfuck.  
tl;dr: Org 13 is a pretentious idea.

= I need to 'freshen up' on KH "lore".  And to explain what happens with Terra, I went to the Wiki and saw the most complicated sentence that explains how bad things are with the KH universe:
Code:
Xehanort was an apprentice of Ansem the Wise and the original persona of Ansem and Xemnas. He was originally "born" as Terra-Xehanort when Master Xehanort forced his heart into the body of Terra then he became simply "Xehanort" when he seemingly lost his memories.
WHAAAAAT.  I needed to read that 5 times then link to the other names to really understand 'what the hell'; I love the ideas in the KH series, but it's truly over-complicated itself to a now humourous degree.  And I'm sorry a bit too since I know there are people who adore the story... I just think it's terribly told.  This point was kind of hit home when I read about Vanitas and how he was added because Tetsuya Nomura got 'carried away'.. ;/

= For as lovely and nostalgic as cutscenes are, they're very slow, and basically C-grade retellings of the old Disney film they represent....  Pause > Skip Scene. :(
BBS is slightly worse for this since they drag out the worlds into three-parters and throw in "light", "dark", and "heart" chatter into them even more than KHII did.

= Dear KH3:  DON'T.  USE.  OLYMPUS.  I know a Titan was in the trailer, but I hope the role of them is more like Ursula was in KH3D as a sort of tutorial/opener boss.

= Mirage Arena doesn't have Internet connection T___T

= I don't think I can get over how awesome it is Leondard Nemoy is Xehanort (the most obviously evil-looking man to have ever lived).  I hope the hire him again if he's needed and don't replace him with a sound-alike.

I'm complaining a lot, but that's because KH can take it; I'm still having quite a bit of fun despite it all!  I love mucking around with abilities, I love exploring worlds, and sure some of the cheesy dialogue is still fun to join in on because you're interacting with "childhood friends".  The games are simply fun.

I like the cut of this Dice's roll. ;)

Here's my small playlist of game tracks with bagpipes. ;)

Kingdom Hearts II

I'd do a full journal for this game but...
a) The Disney worlds aren't terribly interesting to document
b) I feel bad my FF7 one is on a cliffhanger (I think I'll just power through the rest KotR style)

SO STRAY OBSERVATIONS A-GO!

= New OST is just as sexy as HD1.  It doesn't compromise the original material at all either.  Personally, I found the Final Fantasy X HD OST had some issues here, but Shimomura did a great job on Kingdom Hearts.
She's also very good at re-playing 'Dearly Beloved' and just a little differently each time.

= The game has aged well, it looked lovely even on PS2 so this was a fine candidate for HD-ing

= I have such a love/hate relationship with Roxas' introduction (as noted by points above). It's definitely too long and whatever interest there is   ...I do like him as the melancholy opposite to whatever Sora is though, and he looks a million times cooler and more like an actual teenager might, unlike Sora who is one part urban, another shounen manga boy, and one last part humanized Japanese Mickey Mouse.  It sure doesn't help that the series' plot is almost a joke these days and Sora's main personality trait is being dumb and happy

= The love put into the COMMAND menu is amazing and totally appreciated.  Hell even that singular white room where Naminé is had its own theme for almost no reason other than keeping consistent.
#hotbusiness

= I hate the eye colours in this game.  The shade of blue looks so unnatural and looks so painted on everyone looks like they're wearing really bad contact lenses.  Nitpick, but ...it bugs me. >:( 
Especially since like 90% of the cast has blue eyes...

= Unreal...  The original Alice from 'Alice in Wonderland' (1951) REPRISED her role for this Alice, Peter Pan's Wendy, and as Kairi's Grandmother...  You go girl.
Also, even though he doesn't come back to reprise THEIR role, Christopher Lee and Billy fucking Zane are amazing to listen to.

= I love how this game stars a bunch of already has-been child actors. 

= BBS Roxas has pink NIPPLES.  Tee hee. 
I like this because Vaan's FF12 model has some sort of "bruises" where his nipple should be
