I was mildly interested in buying this, but the new soundtrack is madness and convinced me to. Vector to the Heavens is done gloriously, as are:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyaWwq4CfTk Lord of the Castle

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7NU9jBNbjw&list=PLhcSrKyqhfh62PULzXnybRJVhBZSbEYVe Traverse Town

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2gjL_jkl0s SWEET JESUS HOLLOW BASTION

Unfortunately, the only track redone for Chain of Memories was Lord of the Castle. All the rest are the original versions. I hope Birth by Sleep in KH2.5 gets the full treatment.

I think some of KH2's worlds were the best in the series, because they took the concept from KH1 and just tried to make them more interesting-- back when the series was still about "hey, crazy Disney worlds!" rather than "ORGANIZATION NOBODYDREAMEATERXBURADO" insanity. Not all of them were great, but I think in more recent entries (ESPECIALLY 3DS) it's clear that they're focusing less on exploration or meaningful interactions with the Disney worlds and more on "how insane can we make this combat?" which I think removes much of the impact and enjoyment of discovering new worlds and seeing new characters.

When things have become so over-the-top, there's no grounding anywhere to make anything meaningful. In KH2, it felt meaningful when you unlocked double jumps, superglides, and all the air dashes because the system didn't go from 0 to 60 like DDD.

That said, I think there are good bits and pieces in many of the games (heck, even some of the weird minigames in re:coded were entertaining) that, if they can manage to combine them all meaningfully, will make for the best game in the series.

Get the grounding and emotional weight behind some of the earlier games (and BbS), the satsifying ability progression from BbS, the crazy changeups from re:coded (shooters, turn-based stuff!), the world visual design from DDD, and some of the level design from KH2, and I think we'll be good to go.

And as I said before, make Donald and Goofy a meaningful part of the story again. I like their friendship with Sora far more than Riku's.

EDIT:

Also Star Wars and Avengers worlds plz

EDIT 2

ALso, again, I'd really like to see more immersive DIsney worlds. I don't even care if there are FEWER Disney worlds if the four or five that there are are more meaningful. The nature of the 'explore the worlds in whatever order' thing they've had going on, along with the "okay here's a DIsney interlude with OXIII members plotting somewhere else for the real scene at Hollow Bastion after you finish three of these" needs to end. Cohesive narrative!

Okay so yeah I just have a million suggestions for how to improve thins.

You can't look at that picture without this song. You just  can't.

I wrote this in my review, but I think KH3DS' worlds were the worst in the series. Visually, they looked great, but they were basically big empty boxes for you to use flowmotion. I sincerely hope that system does not return again. It was just TOO much. Bring back command fusion from BbS!

I think, more than anything else, what KH3 needs is some elaborate and more interesting worlds-- and MORE EMPHASIS ON DONALD AND GOOFY AGAIN

This is relevant to my interests.

Well, to be fair, THEY didn't say that, Tabata just said that's what he HOPES to do with it. I don't think he gets any say in what the suits decide good sales numbers are. Plus, this was from a shareholders conference (I think?), so of course he's not going to say "I have modest expectations." :)
490  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XV, This is a fantasy based on reality. on: September 09, 2013, 03:31:08 PM
But let's remember, Square reorganized and acknowledged that they have management and business issues, so I think you'll see more realistic expectations from them, going forward.

Nah man, it's got to be that Legend of Dragoon sequel we've all be waiting for!

I think people actually WOULD be excited for that, haha

Well, in terms of like, plot developments having resonance and stuff. But yeah, general understanding ,etc. You COULD play it before 1 and 2, but I think the big "plot twists" have the best impact if you're familiar with all of the characters and stuff from 1 and 2.

EDIT:

Also because of plot spoilers.

1.5 is KH1, the between game Chain of Memories (between 1 and 2), and the cutscenes for 358, which is a sort of prequel to 2.

BbS is a prequel to all of the games, but I'd argue it's more effective if played after KH2.

Yeah, I'd wait for BbS HD. It's arguably the best game in the series (certainly my favorite), so a prettified version would be great.
