Decided to give Kingdom Hearts another chance last night.
Got past the first world and into Alice In Wonderland world....but the game is just not grabbing me.
The music is really good but playing the game just.....makes me cringe.
And I can see why people hate the Gummi ship, although it's not quite as bad as I expected.
KH was such a mixed bag for me. I found the gameplay in some areas horribly addicting, while others were completely grueling. Honestly the music was what shined the most to me as well.
The aesthetic of KH was another plus and while typically great music plus a lovely atmosphere is enough to resonate with me, it just never quite did. I liked it enough to see it through and finish it but I find myself hard pressed to even consider coming back for the sequel, even if it is vastly improved. The cast really sealed the deal for me I think. There just simply wasn't a single character I cared about. Couple that with the fact that I hate cross universe stuff, and am not a disney fan and the good just does not outweigh the bad for me.
Had I got into KH back in the day when it was first released I could REALLY have seen me loving it. But to only experience it now with other offerings on the table... well it just is not quite as tempting.
Been playing Star Ocean 2 on my PS1 since my newer systems were stolen. I really like this game.
Now if I were aiming for a dose of nostalgia, this ^^^^ is precisely where I'd go! In truth I've had a Star Ocean itch for quite some time I may need to scratch in the not so distant future! LoL
Star Ocean 2 stands in my mind as one of the best titles from my childhood that I have a poor recollection of. That makes for an awesome re-experience of a title for me.
Now in my realm...
I just couldn't help myself with the editor in Mod Nation racer. Say hello to Shadow in HD!!
Yea there were some other "Shadows" for download, but they just weren't spot on in my book. Not that mine is spot on either, but AT LEAST it is my own. I know I'm gonna have to make some Secret of Mana characters before I retire as a Modnation creator.
BREATH OF FIRE 4: Making my way to the empire. Secured a the path down the river via a pottery/info exchance so I didn't have to lose my Mutant gene. And lastly, in tried and true Breath of Fire fashion, I love this game but HATE HATE HATE fishing. That is all. Carry on.
