946  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #2 on the new(ish) boards on: April 19, 2006, 12:05:23 AM
I popped in KH2 again after I finished a paper for school and messed around a bit. Got my party to level 55 and just did some ownage in the Underdrome.

Code:
And just for the hell of it I went to take on Sephiroth. He's a lot harder in this game. The last game I was able to beat him at level 47 without too much trouble thanks to Second Chance, but this time around he is much more brutal. I did manage to knock three health bars off of him before he killed me, but that was only thanks to Counterguard and Retaliating Slash. Nuts.


With summer coming I'm probably going to tackle the game in Proud mode to get that second movie at the end.

On that note, I just remembered a passage from the textbook for my Astronomy class that talked briefly about global warming. It said something to the effect that the Earth's average surface temperature had risen about .7 degrees fahrenheit since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The writers seemed to take the same stance as that article in thinking it had been overblown by leftist politicians as a campaign tool. It also mentioned the fact the Earth has naturally gone through huge climate changes in the past, and that we shouldn't assume the same thing can't happen again.

EDIT: Here is a link to that textbook. Though my class did use the previous edition.

Eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Goreís personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change.


...HAHA!

I think I'll pass on seeing this "movie" and watch all the new comic book movies coming out this summer.

Besides, if I had to hear Al Gore ramble for two hours again I'd probably end up in the nuthouse.

True that it is possibly something like that. There was an SMB3 movie floating around like that a year or two ago. But then again, I was once able to complete Megaman 2 on hard mode in 40 minutes without dying and while playing on an actual NES, and on a daily basis to boot. So I think these things are possible without cheating, they just take lots of time and practice.

And yes, I really could do that up until about two years ago.

Reading Beowulf again because I'm writing a paper on it, well, sort of. It's still the best.
951  The Rest / General Discussions / Zelda in 25:29 on: April 12, 2006, 12:08:14 AM
Wow, that's pretty impressive. I couldn't do it. The latter dungeons in the game still give me trouble.

Dammit, now I want to play it!

Edit: Also, would any of you who go 'the voice acting sucks!!!' mind explaining why you feel that way?


About the only one I found believable was Nel. The emotion of the others seemed forced, like the VAs weren't putting their hearts into it. I'm not saying they weren't, I'm just saying I don't think it sounded like they were. It's one of the problems. Kind of like that stupid laughing scene in FFX. It was poorly written as it was, but good acting can make a poorly written scene a memorable one. Like in The Empire Strikes Back the love scenes between Leia and Han would have detracted from the quality of the movie because they were poorly written. But the acting of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher (more Ford than Fisher though) made those scenes work and stick.

My two cents.

What is Jimbo doing here?

Oh, that's right, I actually bought music!

Going away now.

Yea, I actually had fun in one of the Gummi levels this time around. That being Broken Highway (I think). The rest of them weren't terrible, but I can't say I enjoyed them either.

Personally, I thought Atlantica and The Hundred Acre Wood were nice diversions from the other worlds. Partially because I thought Atlantica was awful in the first KH and not actually having combat in that world this time around was WAY nice. But that's just me.

It did?? What characters were cool?


Dude, seriously, we're talking about a game with Donald Duck in it. You can't get much cooler than that.
956  The Rest / General Discussions / PS3 $500 Euros on: April 05, 2006, 08:16:11 PM
Well, there has been plenty of speculation that it will be expensive.

As for me, I'll wait for a price drop or two. Of course that is also considering that I'll actually want one.

Iíve lost interest in the Zelda series since Ocarina of Time. Itís not that the latest installments had become that bad, but the series have lost something essential in comparison with the first episodes.


I somewhat agree. I thought Wind Waker recaptured some of the Zelda charm, but ever since Miyamoto handed the creative control of the series over to Eiji Aonuma I have had a harder time feeling that Zelda feeling. Especially with the Capcom games. However the series remains tremendously fun so I keep on playing.

I do have high hopes for Phantom Hourglass and Twilight Princess. I don't think I'll be let down by any means, but I'm hoping the Zelda charm will make a humongous come back.
958  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: April 03, 2006, 07:08:37 PM
Kingdom Hearts 2 = finished. I was even pretty dang close to having the second, secret movie at the end since I finished all the worlds and had 87% of Jiminy's Journal complete. Maybe once school is finished I'll go back and finish Jiminy's Journal to get it. But for now I'm satisfied.

Great game, great ending.

Even if:
Code:
The last boss fights (yes a plural) against Xemnas took me an hour and a half! Seriously, I would've loved to have a save somewhere in the middle of all that, BUT NO! And fighting alongside Riku was flippin' fun as hell.
959  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: April 02, 2006, 10:35:10 PM
I have to say the Pride Lands in KHII were hella cool. Now all I need to do is the second episode there and finish up Atlantica whenever it happens that I get the Thundaga element. Pooh's story book is finished and I got that lovely Cosmic Ring to equip on Sora who STILL needs more AP even though he has almost 60 with the ring.

I'm getting close to being finished. Game clock says twenty-six hours.
960  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: April 02, 2006, 06:36:20 PM
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 :(
