  1. You bring up a good point with Pandora: World of Avatar. That is definitely a land that could have easily been a flop, but it was a huge success, despite the fact that it seems like no one really talks about Avatar anymore. So, either people are still huge fans of Avatar and just aren't talking about it, or people went to the land despite how they felt about the movie. I have a feeling it's the latter, and if it is, I'm sure Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will do better in Walt Disney World than it is currently doing in Disneyland. Also, I don't think that Galaxy's Edge is doing as badly as people are making it out to be doing. Yes, there are not huge crowds at Galaxy's Edge right now, but that goes for all of Disneyland, not just Galaxy's Edge. To me, this means that there is something more going on than people just not liking Galaxy's Edge. As you said, I think a big factor is how they handled the crowd control. Plus, despite the fact that it looks as though no one cares, they have sold out of a lot of merchandise. If no one cared about Galaxy's Edge, I think all of the merchandise would still be on the shelves. Just to be clear, I'm not saying that Galaxy's Edge is a success. It is obviously not doing what Disney was expecting, and Disney is making it known that they are not happy with the results. However, since all of Disneyland is poorly attended right now, I think that it has more to do with how expensive tickets are, how the locals were being kept out to make room for tourists, and how Galaxy's Edge isn't even finished yet, which is probably keeping tourists away.
  2. I definitely think that Disney could build an entire Star Wars theme park. I think that could actually be a really big success for them if they did it right, and it could lead to not only bigger and better lands in other theme parks but also bigger and better theme parks, like how the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios caused Disney to start making better themed lands. I personally haven't been to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge yet either, but from what I have seen, it looks like I would really enjoy it. I can understand the issues others have with it though. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a failure like others have, at least not yet. I will wait to see what attendance looks like once all of the pass holders are let in to the Disneyland version (some were not being let in because of the anticipated tourists), once the other ride opens at the Disneyland version, and once the version in Hollywood Studios opens (since Walt Disney World attracts more tourists than Disneyland does). However, even if it does end up being a failure, that could end up becoming a good thing in the longrun because it will cause Disney to find out where they went wrong and fix it so that it doesn't happen again.
  3. Since there is not a lot of Kingdom Hearts news to discuss right now, I decided to post something else that I have been thinking about a lot recently. Star Wars Land is now open in Disneyland, but it does not seem to be doing as well as Disney expected it to do. I think that there are many different reasons contributing to why that is, but one of them is probably the fact that Star Wars Land mostly focuses on the sequel trilogy and doesn't include many popular characters and locations that guests would want to see in a Star Wars Land. I understand that Disney wanted to make Star Wars Land as immersive as possible, and having characters from the previous movies appearing in the same land as characters from the current movies could ruin that immersion. However, I think that you can divide the land into sections that focus on each of the trilogies and still make it feel immersive. So, here is my idea of how they could have done just that. The main hub of Star Wars Land would be a section of Mos Eisley. This would serve as the main shopping district for Star Wars Land, and it would also be the area where you could build your own droid. Among these shops would be the milk stand where blue and green milk is sold, but instead of them only being frozen beverages that don't contain dairy, I think there should be dairy options as well. You would also be able to visit the cantina, where you would be able to get alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages. The Smuggler's Run ride would no longer be a ride included in Star Wars Land, but you would still be able to board the Millennium Falcon in order to meet Han Solo and Chewbacca. There would be two rides in this area. One would be Star Tours, which would be moved there from its current location (since Mos Eisley is a space port, Star Tours would fit right in as a ride in this area), and the other would be a Podracing ride (you would enter this ride by going under an archway leading out of Mos Eisley and into the area of Tatooine where Podraces were held in The Phantom Menace). There would also be Stormtroopers patrolling Mos Eisley like there were in A New Hope. If you go straight ahead and under an archway, you would enter the forest moon of Endor. This area would mostly be for meet and greets. You would be able to head to an Ewok village where Ewoks could be seen in the structures above you. Here you would be able to meet Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia as well as R2-D2 and C-3PO. You would also be able to head to an Imperial outpost where you would be able to meet Darth Vader. This area would also be the location of the third and final ride in Star Wars Land, in which you find yourself trapped on either an Imperial Star Destroyer or the Death Star and have to escape. This ride would be like the Rise of the Resistance ride that is still being constructed, but it would be themed to the original trilogy instead of the sequel trilogy. Off to the left from Mos Eisley and under another archway would be a section of Naboo. The Jedi would be visiting this area in order to find more Younglings to train. This area would be the location of the Jedi Training Academy show, which would be moved there from its current location. It would also be where you can meet Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. You would also be able to build your own lightsaber here, but instead of just building a realistic prop lightsaber, you could choose between that or building a toy lightsaber for a cheaper price. Finally, off to the right from Mos Eisley and under another archway would be a section of Takodana, just outside of Maz Kanata’s castle. Here, you would find that the First Order have started to set up a temporary base where you would be able to meet Kylo Ren. In response to the First Order's arrival, you would find that the Resistance have started to set up a temporary base too where you would be able to meet Rey and BB-8. Inside Maz Kanata's castle would be the main location to get food. So, that is my idea for how Star Wars Land could include characters and locations from each trilogy and still feel immersive. What do you guys think? How would you make Star Wars Land? Do you like Star Wars Land the way it currently is?
  4. I don't think there is one particular thing that is the main selling point of a game to me. I just get a game if it looks fun to me or sounds like something I would enjoy playing.
  5. Lion King 1 1/2 is my favorite Disney sequel.
  6. A trailer for Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind has been released. In the first scene that the trailer shows, we see Young Xehanort with grey eyes talking to who seems to be the Master of Masters. While the scene is short and doesn't reveal a whole lot, it does shed some light on some things. Since Xehanort still has grey eyes, we know that this is before Xehanort started embracing the darkness. We now know that the mysterious man, who seems to be Master of Masters, is the one who first introduced the black coats that could ward off darkness to Xehanort. I think that there is a possibility that the introduction to this black coat is what first led Xehanort to abandon the use of his Keyblade armor. The Master of Masters asks Young Xehanort, "So how'd it go? The world tour." The Master of Masters saying that reminded me of Secret Report 2: Mark of Mastery Journal from Kingdom Hearts III, which was written by Xehanort. It said, "Some days have passed since I set off on my journey to prepare for the Mark of Mastery examination. Eraqus asked for leave to undertake the same pilgrimage, but apparently I am to be the first to tour the worlds written of in the old fairy tales." So, this scene seems to take place after Xehanort finished his preparations for the Mark of Mastery exam by touring the worlds. The worlds Xehanort visited also seem to be the worlds written of in the Book of Prophecies. I don't know if that is important or not, but it probably is. In response to the Master of Masters' question of how the world tour went, Xehanort said to him, "In an awful way, I realized just how necessary I am." It seems that Xehanort may have already started forming his plan to purge the World even back then. As we see in Secret Report 2, it is during his world tour that Xehanort realizes that darkness can be mastered, and, after he completes his world tour, he decides to do so and wield it in proper balance with light, which means that it must not be too long after this scene that he get his yellow eyes. That's all I can get out of this scene right now, but I can't wait to find out more once the DLC is released.
  7. Bosconian is my favorite classic arcade game. I loved freely flying around space and taking out enemy ships and space stations.
  8. I'm most excited to see Safer Sephiroth and hear the version of One-Winged Angel that will play during the fight against him, assuming that the final boss fights will remain the same that is.
  9. In my opinion, the best way to make a successful videogame adaptation is to adapt a videogame that is story focused. I think that the reason why Detective Pikachu worked is that it is based on a videogame that was story focused and not gameplay focused. That doesn't mean that I think it is impossible to adapt a videogame that is gameplay focused, I just think it is way more difficult to do so. That being said, I think that, if Nintendo were to adapt any other videogame franchise, it should be Metroid. I think that it could work either as a more kid-friendly version of Alien or as a more mature Nintendo adaptation that focuses a bit more on the horror of Metroid. Either way, I think a Metroid adaptation could be successful if done right and has a better chance of being successful than any other videogame franchise that Nintendo owns. But first, now that Nintendo has proven that a live-action Pokemon adaptation can be successful, I think that they should make another live-action Pokemon adaptation based on the main games.
  10. I would most like to visit Disney Castle/Disney Town. While it is not my favorite world, I think that it would be the world I would enjoy visiting the most because of its cartoony nature. Plus, it is the home of King Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and all of their friends, who are my favorite Disney characters.
  11. I thought that this game had the best visuals (the cutscenes made me feel like I was watching a movie), the best world design for the Disney worlds (except for the 100 Acre Wood), and the best music (the original pieces composed for the cutscenes were the icing on the cake for me). Even though I still think that the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts II was the best overall, the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts III was fun, and it provided you with more options than ever before. In addition, the Gummi Ship was the best it has ever been. While the cutscenes were better than ever before, sometimes they dragged on for too long. While most of the Disney worlds were great, the 100 Acre Wood and the original worlds left me wanting more. Also, while it was great having so many different gameplay options, not all of the gameplay options were great. However, those are just minor complaints. My only big complaint was with the story. It felt poorly paced, it didn't seem like any of the original characters other than Sora got the attention they should have gotten (which could be considered part of the pacing issue), and the foreshadowing for future games made Kingdom Hearts III feel less like a finale and more like just another chapter in an even bigger story. However, while Kingdom Hearts III did not have the best story, it did have the best moments in the entire series, so much so that I can't imagine how future Kingdom Hearts games will top those moments. Overall, I felt that there were more positives than negatives, and the negatives that were there weren't enough to make me not enjoy the game. We will have to see if future DLC makes me change my score, but as of right now, I give Kingdom Hearts III an 8/10.
  12. Nomura was asked in an interview if all six of the Master of Master's apprentices were present as dark pieces on the chessboard, and Nomura replied, "Yes." When asked who the seventh was, Nomura said that we can guess, but it's a surprise. So, unless Nomura goes back on what he said, we know that six of the seven dark pieces on the chessboard are all six of the Master of Masters' apprentices. People have been saying that the heart-shaped dark piece is the Master of Masters, but according to Nomura, it's a surprise who that piece is, so we don't know for sure that it is the Master of Masters yet. So, if anything, it will be the Master of Masters who isn't present on the side of the darknesses, or at least he might not be one of the seven darknesses on the chessboard. He still may be on the side of the darknesses. He just may not be one of the darknesses actively participating in the battle.
  13. I don't think Kairi needs fixing. I just think her character development needs to continue. To me, how she has been used so far has made sense, even in Kingdom Hearts III. While she wasn't handled perfectly in Kingdom Hearts III, I don't think she was handled poorly. In fact, considering she only just learned how to use the Keyblade and was immediately thrown into a war, I think she did pretty well. Since Kairi expressed a desire to no longer wait on the sidelines, I'm sure we will get to see her grow as a Keyblade wielder, which means she will not remain a rookie for very long. However, if Kairi goes back to waiting on sidelines and not trying to contribute, then I will be upset. I doubt that will happen though. And so, assuming her development continues, I can't wait to see her become the talented Keyblade wielder we all want her to be.
