I'm around twenty-four hours into Kingdom Hearts. Over the last two days I've put twelve hours into it. Guh, I haven't done that since Wind Waker!

Anywhoo, I'm to the second episode of Halloween Town. Sora and friends are level forty. And if I would have bothered with Pooh's story book in the last game I have a feeling I would have spent a lot less time at the Coliseum. It's just a lot of uncomplicated, good ol' fun. I only have one missing page left to find.

And I'm WAY glad Atlantica is just a place of timed and rapid button pressing now. It was the area I hated the most in the last game, but it's much better this time around.

That is all! Now I'm going to rest my poor eyes :(

...I played KHII for eight hours today. Started off on my first trip to Port Royal and ended going there for the second time.

Though I think I may have messed up a bit.

As soon as Kairi showed up in Twilight Town I went back. After the events there I went to Hollow Bastion and totally skipped Halloweentown and whatever world was beyond it. I hope that doesn't screw me up too severely.

And I wasn't expecting a boss fight as hard as Xaldin's as the rest of the game has been fairly easy. But wow, he kept kicking my ass even though he was obviously just a Kain wannabe, the loser. Finally I switched party members and used Wisdom to own him. Did I mention he was hard?

This game rules.

EDIT: Some very minor spoilers I guess.

I seem to remember the situation was that Capcom made the game, Square was only involved with the US release because Capcom thought it would sell better if Square's name was on it.

I'm callin bullshit on that one.

Yea, Capcom had Square's help with creating the first BoF. I'm not exactly certain, but I believe Capcom enlisted Square's help to give Capcom a presence in the RPG genre in the early 90s. They just didn't have any ideas themselves for an RPG, I suppose. As to how much of the game was developed by either party I have no clue. I'd probably have to hunt down a booklet or see the credits and I'm up to neither task.

Biggest. Letdown. Ever.

Great battle system, don't get me wrong, but the entire game's premise is SPACE GALACTIC WARFARE BOOM ZING BAM STAR WARS. And you get stuck on a stupid little medieval planet fighting evil trees. Strike one.

So okay, stick us on a medieval world. But it's a TINY medieval world. Those 'overworld' sequences are so short and cover so little ground, it feels more like you're off to the variety store than roaming the world. Strike two.

That 'plot twist'? Lame. In fact, most of the story wound up being lame. If not for the excellent battles, I don't think I'd have stuck around until the second disc. The only characters I wound up liking were Cliff and Nel. Everyone else was either plain as shit or annoyed the skin off me (fscking Peppita). Strike three.


So yeah. Big flaming letdown.

Yea, I couldn't have said it better so I'm quoting Hidoshi. But since I feel like it:

I think Star Ocean 3 sucks. The battle system was fun and kept me playing for twelve hours. But I gave up because the plot was going nowhere, the characters all sucked, the majority of the voice actors annoyed the fuck out of me and lastly: I WANTED AN RPG IN FUCKING OUTER SPACE DAMMIT! Not some lame ass backwater world I could find in a large percentage of other games out there.

Two huge thumbs down.

I made it to the oldschool black and white world in KHII. Fighting Hydra at the Coliseum was fun as hell! And I love this game!
951  The Rest / General Discussions / Man, WHAT on: March 31, 2006, 05:14:18 PM
I have a feeling I'm lucky in the fact that I don't get it.

Thank God.

Just made it to the Coliseum in Kingdom Hearts II.

Where the Mulan world was bland and not really entertaining, Beast's Castle was a huge improvement...and it had some badass boss fights.

I'm to Beast's Castle in Kingdom Hearts 2. The Mulan world was pretty fun, but the game does have one thing that annoyed me about the original. That being the characters in the worlds hardly develop, and what development is there is shaky. Mulan as Ping was worthless, but once she changed her clothes she turned into a fierce fighter. That's a great way to develop the character...

Boss fights are still fantastic.

Cursing isn't a big deal for me. I personally don't curse very often, but that's not because of some moral standpoint. I rarely feel the need to use curse words, as I'm fully able to express my viewpoint without using expletives.

Same with me really. I tend to not swear unless I'm trying to put A LOT of emphasis on something. But I have no big deal with people who do swear a lot. Personally, I find language to be arbitrary. What is considered vulgar in one language or area of the world may not be elsewhere. I was fairly surprised when I found out "shit" wasn't considered vulgar in many English speaking countries and that they used the word often. Because of this I have no problem saying or hearing cuss words. But I try really hard to respect others' beliefs on the matter by not swearing if I know they find it offensive. Though I have been known to fail at this XD

I got my hands on Kingdom Hearts II today and I played it for four and a half hours straight. That's the first I've done that with any game since Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance last fall. Okay, so I guess that wasn't too long ago, but still!

I was somewhat disoriented at first having not played Chain of Memories and having no idea what was going on. I'm glad the game filled me in to some extent. And wow, it was actually pretty sad.

Poor Roxas. It was kind of heartbreaking to me to find out he was only a portion of Sora. I suspected something along those lines from the get-go, but it was still sad.

I stopped at Yen Sid's tower. Supposed to be reading some book.

Only RPG I've finished so far this year would be Grandia III. Though I imagine Kingdom Hearts II will be on that list in a few weeks.

I was recently introduced to the band, Flogging Molly, by a friend. I am in love.

Currently listening to Drunken Lullabies by Flogging Molly.

I would have been just fine with Nintendo Fuck Yea, or Uber-Nintendo 69. If Nintendo GO is true, though, I won't complain. A bland name if you ask me, but then again I think all of Nintendo's home systems have had lackluster names.

I'm still buying one :P

Breath of Fire II is a great game. As Eusis said, it actually tried for a story which was original at the time. The first one is just a dungeon crawler with a high encounter rate and a story that makes Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest look like a Shakespeare tragedy.

That's why we're Americans Deg. :P

EDIT: On topic, I still prefer brownies to cookies on most days of the week. Especially if buying from the store. Brownies > cookies.
