    So I saw on a tweet that Tron was announced only a month before KH2 was released. So it's not impossible for another Disney world to be announced. It would probably just be a less popular or not a mainstream one.

    looks like KH3 on base PS4 is going to try its best to stay at 30 FPS. I'm so happy the game is going to be this way!   source: https://www.reddit.com/r/KingdomHearts/comments/a46eie/kh3_got_to_play_kh3_demo_here_in_the_philippines/

    Am I the only person who wants to see base PS4 gameplay of kingdom hearts 3 to see how smooth it runs on the base ps4 console? Sadely, I don't see that happening anytime soon because SE wants to show off kh3 in its best performance on the PS4 pro and Xbox one

    With all the trailer hype, I'm still immensely bothered by those glowing walls. It feels like nobody is talking about this anymore as if it's suddenly fine. It's not. It's super distracting and honestly, I don't need the game telling me that. It can establish that once in a tutorial stage but that's it. Tell me I can run up almost anything flat and I will try that if nothing else works. There's nothing wrong with letting people figure out things by themselves, especially if a game is rated 10+. It's not like someone would suddenly miss a wall to progress, considering Sora is running up on his own without pressing any buttons.
    This isn't like other games that tell you which objects can be taken with a subtle, more outstanding color or other hints, especially when they're easy to miss otherwise.(Although that can often be adjusted.)  But if the 3 walls caging me in all glow then this would be a major deal-breaker. They're doing a great job with the environments and burying that beneath a layer of an unnatural wavy glow destroys that. That is especially noticeable in Toy Story and also BH6. It simply doesn't fit into the surroundings.
    I sincerely hope that this can be turned off in the settings. I'm not 5 anymore, I know how to use environmental techniques if the game tells me once. Had no problems with Flow Motion either. I don't need to be taken by the hand to such a degree that I won't figure out how to move on if all the walls don't scream at me to push against them. Imagine if games like Mario 64 did that. The entire game would be shining.

    Merilly got a reaction from The Transcendent Key for a status update, I'm not really sad FFXV's DLC got canceled for the most part except for Episode Ardyn   
    I'm not really sad FFXV's DLC got canceled for the most part except for Episode Ardyn. Apart from the fact that I'm not fond of DLC and we all know that the main game's development was a train-wreck, I of course pity the losses that resulted from that.
    However, I am glad that this might show what people think about adding crucial story elements to an RPG through paid DLC going on for over a year. In FFXV it couldn't be helped that their development time was greatly reduced due to the director change and the general change of direction. They basically tried to make the most of what was left without keeping it in development hell for another three years or so.
    That still doesn't excuse the practice of delivering story elements through DLC to patch up the numerous plot holes though. RPGs are often story-driven and making money out of the fact that they failed to present a coherent story due to time issues after 10 years of development is not excusable for me. Yes, they need to make up for the loss but it's still their fault.
    I'm fine with DLC as long as it's mainly cosmetic or add a few things here and there where you think that's not necessary for the understanding but nice to have. But that was not the cass for FFXV or even other games and when paying so much for a game, one can expect to get a full game. This practice of delivering content later is an abomination. Though not only developers are to blame for that with how impatient people are. They want the game and they want them now and perfect.
    I'm not going to turn this more into a rant than I already have, but it's probably better to put a lid on FFXV now. It's not a terrible game at all but it's obvious that it's neither what it attempted to become and won't get a rehab with more DLC.
    I hope that sets an example though and the same thing won't happen to KH3 or other SE games because they spent too much time on countless mini games for example. Cutting actual content for space should only be necessary when nothing else can be cut.
    I feel like FFXV couldn't live up to the expectations and instead of moving on, they tried to revive it with countless gimmicks, games, etc. that won't magically erase its shortcomings. It's better to stop now and focus on different projects.
    I'm not too worried about SE's financial department though. The mobile games alone should make up for a good portion of their loss.

    It's somehow really hard to type off my fanfiction... I've only finished 20 pages out of 55 so far. Granted, I was sick again and my head felt all woozy but I wanted to have it done by the end of last week... It doesn't help that I'm unhappy with so many passages and want to rewrite them a second time but then I'm just brooding over it without actually improving anything. My long absence has really made my works worse and my register seems non-existent.

    I feel like we aren't  getting anything huge until Jump Festa. Maybe at the Game Awards. I'm a little skeptical  about that one though.
