  1. My favorite Marvel movie is and probably always will be the first Avengers movie, but I would like to give a special shoutout to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I feel like I'm the only one who prefers Vol. 2 over the original, and I don't think it gets enough love. While the first Guardians of the Galaxy is great, I have always felt that the humor is what was holding it together, and if you got rid of the humor, the movie would fall apart. However, what I loved about the sequel was that you really got to dive into the characters and their relationships in a way that you didn't in the first one. I couldn't really believe that they were all friends and willing to risk their lives to save the galaxy in the first movie, but I fully believed it in the sequel because of the extra character development we got.
  2. I initially had a lot of issues with the story of the game. I still have some issues with it, particularly with the pacing of the end of the game, but after reading several messages and interviews from the team, I appreciate what they gave us a lot more. I am not a professional writer, but I like to write stories for fun. If there is one thing I've learned from writing those stories, it is that it can be very challenging to write a perfect story that everyone is happy with (even though these stories are written just for me, I like to write them with an audience in mind). It is one thing to write the story you want to tell. It is another thing to write the story that everyone else wants to be told. If you are trying to write a story that will satisfy an audience and not just yourself, it can be extremely difficult to know what to do. Since the writer already knows the story, the challenge comes in getting the point of the story across to the audience while making everything make sense within the universe that has been established. There has been many a time when I have written what I thought was the perfect story, but then I looked back at it and saw many things that didn't make sense that didn't even cross my mind originally. However, when someone looks at a story without knowing what the story is about, I feel that it is a lot easier for them to spot the flaws than for the writer, who knows what he was trying to do. So, the point that I am trying to make is that, even though I only write for fun, I can understand the difficulties that this team had in making the story for Kingdom Hearts III. Through all of the messages and interviews that have been released, it is clear to me that a lot of thought and care was put into not just the story but every aspect of this game. So, even though the game isn't perfect, I appreciate what we got because it is still a fun and entertaining game that had a lot of hard work, effort, and love put into it.
  3. I don't think he's going to be a character we already know. I think he's going to be a completely new character.
  4. Kairi will always be my favorite.
  5. Did you hear the news? Kingdom Hearts III is a masterpiece! It is the most visually pleasing game in the series yet! The worlds are bigger and better than ever! The game is fun to play! It has a good story! Even if this is your first Kingdom Hearts games, the story is easy to follow! It definitely lives up to the hype and is the game we've been waiting for! Everyone who says otherwise is just a hater who is upset that what they wanted wasn't in the game! Did you hear the other news? Kingdom Hearts III is the worst game ever! The characters don't look as good! The worlds are smaller and there are less of them than in previous games! The combat is horrible! The story sucks! Unless you know everything about all of the past Kingdom Hearts games, you won't know what's going on! It is the most disappointing game ever! Everyone who says its good is just lying to themselves and are scared to admit the truth! These are the two reactions to Kingdom Hearts III that I seem to see the most of. Either it is perfect and has no flaws, or it is the worst thing ever made and there is nothing redeemable about it. Why can't it be in the middle? Why can't it just be a fun game that has flaws? I feel like most people are just reacting to their own expectations right now, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. However, can't we just admit that there can be both positives and negatives and not ignore the other side (I'm not saying that all of you are acting this way; it just feels like most people are acting this way)?
  6. It seems that every time I edit this post, another "4" is added to the bottom. Does anyone know why that is? Is there a way to get rid of them?
  7. Don't get me wrong. I think that Kingdom Hearts III is an amazing game. However, I also think that the story is messy. It is poorly paced and includes plot elements that are either not properly explained or don't matter to the story at all and only serve to set up for the future of the series (or maybe both). And so, using the power of hindsight, I have decided to rewrite the story of Kingdom Hearts III, while keeping as many story elements that it introduced as possible, into a story that I think has better pacing, explains things a bit better, and doesn't hint toward the future as heavily in order to spend more time on wrapping up the story of the Dark Seeker Saga. Keep in mind, I don't think that I could necessarily write a better story than they did. If I was tasked with writing the story for Kingdom Hearts III from scratch, it might end up being worse than the one we got (not that the one we got was bad; it was just messy). I'm just using the ideas they came up with to tell a story that I think would flow better. With that being said, I'm interested to hear what you guys think of my rewrite (and, just as a warning, it is a pretty lengthy rewrite). How would you rewrite the story of Kingdom Hearts III? Do you think the story is fine the way it is?
  8. I can understand being disappointed. I was disappointed by certain parts of the game too. However, at the same time, there is so much to like about this game. For me, the only things that really held the game back were certain parts of the story. It is perfectly fine to not like it. It is also perfectly fine to like it least of all of them. However, I think that most of what you brought up can be summed up as not meeting your expectations.
  9. My biggest issues with Kingdom Hearts III was with the story too, but for different reasons.
  10. I'm not entirely sure, but I think I've played through Birth by Sleep the most. We'll have to see if that changes once I get my hands on Kingdom Hearts III.
  11. Where did those people pre-order their copies from that theirs got delivered early? I've been tracking my copy, and it's been sitting in the town next to me since Friday. It looks like they have no intention of giving it to me early, which is torture! It's so close and yet so far! So, I'm planning a heist to steal what's rightfully mine but is being withheld from me. Any help would be appreciated. Disclaimer: I am not actually planning a heist and have no intention of stealing anything. This is all just a joke to help ease the pain since I have to wait two more days to play this game that I've been waiting so long for.
  12. I can understand how these things may be concerning, but I think the fact that, despite these flaws, the game is still receiving great reviews shows that these flaws did not break the game or make it unenjoyable. Because of that, I'm not too worried about them. I also think that it is really cool that we have the option to turn off some of these features if we don't want to use them. While I suppose that wanting to turn them off could be viewed as a bad thing since that could mean that they aren't that good, at least we have the option to do so to customize our style of play so that we can play the way we want to and get the most enjoyment out of it. That's how I see it anyway.
  13. I wonder if we get to take control of Riku more than one time during the game, and this is one of those times. We see Riku protect Sora from a wave of Heartless while Sora is on his hands and knees near the end of the Final Battle Trailer. Maybe Riku says this quote to Sora, but Sora is too upset by what happened, so we play as Riku as we try to protect Sora from the oncoming Heartless. It could end with Riku being lost to the storm of Heartless too as he sacrifices himself to save Sora, which leaves Sora all alone. It is also possible that he says this before everyone is swept away by the Heartless, which would mean that he is referring to Donald and Axel (and possibly some others who haven't been shown yet) and is telling everyone else (Sora, Kairi, Mickey, Goofy, and whoever else could be there) that there is still a chance to save them. I suppose he could also be talking about one or more of the characters who have been Norted and is saying that there is still a chance to save them from Xehanort's control, but I think that the other guesses are more likely.
  14. Memorable is a lot different than best or favorite. For me, even though the World of Chaos from Kingdom Hearts 1 is my favorite boss fight in the entire series, the most memorable boss fight has to be the final boss fight against Xemnas in Kingdom Hearts II. Since Kingdom Hearts II was my first Kingdom Hearts game, the entire ending is really memorable to me, especially since this was the first time I was introduced to multiple phases for a final boss fight. I kept thinking it was over, but it just kept going, and I had to start all over again if I lost. It was so frustrating, but it felt so good when I defeated him and saw what I consider one of the happiest endings of all time. Plus, that final attack that Xemnas does makes this fight impossible to not be memorable.
  15. As a follow up to a post I already made, while I personally don't need a lot of content in order to be satisfied with the game, I can completely understand why others would be concerned, especially if it's true that not as much attention was given to the original worlds. The point that I was trying to make was that Square-Enix has made good games and has given us complete stories in the past, even when the original worlds were small, such as in Birth by Sleep. So, I'm sure that they will still give us a good and complete experience no matter what. Basically, I think that there are still reasons to be optimistic, but I guess we will just have to wait and see for ourselves once the game officially is released.
  16. I have not been paying attention to any of the leaks, and I don't plan on exposing myself to any of them before the release of the game. So, I don't know for sure what is being talked about, but from what I can gather, it sounds like there is way more content for the Disney worlds than there is for the original worlds. I don't want to make any judgements before I play the game, but I have never cared about how much content there is. All I care about is whether or not I had fun while playing the game. Take 0.2 for example. That game was very small, but it is probably one of the most fun games in the entire series for me. The original worlds in Birth by Sleep were also very small compared to the Disney worlds (except for Radiant Garden), and yet the Keyblade Graveyard is my favorite world in the entire series, despite there being barely anything in that world. For all I know, the Keyblade Graveyard will still have basically nothing in it this time. Maybe all it will be is just a giant open space for that huge battle we saw in the trailers. As long as it is fun, I don't care. All I want is a fun game, and I don't necessarily need a lot of content in order for it to be fun. However, that is just my opinion.
