  1. 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)?
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. My biggest issues with Kingdom Hearts III was with the story too, but for different reasons.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I feel the same way! I feel like it should have been obvious since there were orchestra versions for the theme songs of Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, but for some reason, I didn't even think about there being one for the theme song of Kingdom Hearts III. I'm so happy that there is, though! It sounds so good! Plus, I'm a sucker for orchestral music.
  14. I think that they will each have their own boss fight. It might not be during the final battle, but I do think that we will get to fight each of them at least once during the game. Maybe it will be like in Kingdom Hearts II where we fought some of them in other worlds, and then the remaining ones were fought one after the other right at the end of the game.
  15. Yes. However, since I think that Demyx and Vexen aren't real seekers of darkness, I think that there being fifteen pieces on the side of the darknesses can be explained by them not belonging there. Also, since Terra's piece can be seen on both the side of the lights and the side of the darknesses, it's possible that this could mean that Terra started off as a light but then became a darkness. If these two guesses of mine are correct, then that would bring the total number of pieces on each side to seven for the lights and thirteen for the darknesses. That being said, there could be more pieces that haven't been revealed yet (such as a piece for Roxas), which could throw another loop into things.
  16. I fully expect to be wrong. However, I would like to explain why I think what I think. The reason why I included Riku-Replica is that we saw him (or whoever that other Riku was) confronting Sora in San Fransokyo. As far as I know, the only people that we have seen Sora encounter in the trailers so far have been members of the seekers of darkness. Plus, the other Riku has yellow eyes, and yellow eyes are one of the signs that someone is a Xehanort. I am aware of Demyx appearing at the beginning of the Final Battle Trailer (I'm not sure if Vexen appears there as well because Demyx was the only one I could make out). However, I think that he is only infiltrating the seekers of darkness and isn't really one of them. He seems to be working with Ienzo since we see him approaching Ienzo and talking to him while carrying something at the end of the TGS Big Hero 6 Trailer, and I don't think that Ienzo is a seeker of darkness. As for Vexen, since he was not one of the thirteen who were originally chosen to be seekers of darkness at the end of Dream Drop Distance, I don't think that Vexen is one of them unless there was a shakeup in the roster. Also, since there appears to be a total of fifteen chess pieces for the seekers of darkness, maybe that means that two were among them who didn't belong there, and those two could be Demyx and Vexen. I think that Terra will be a seeker of darkness because we see Young Xehanort use Terra's chess piece to declare a "checkmate" against Young Eraqus at the beginning of the TGS Big Hero 6 Trailer. That opening scene seemed to imply that Terra is going to be the one to seemingly give Xehanort the victory, but that Sora will do something unexpected that keeps the game going. And if this really is how it is going to happen, then Terra has to be one of the seekers of darkness.
  17. While I think that overall, the final boss to Kingdom Hearts II was the best, the final boss to Kingdom Hearts 1 is my favorite. I just love the fact that you get to destroy a giant living spaceship piece by piece. Even though it wasn't the most challenging final boss, I found it to not only be the most fun final boss, but also the most fun boss in the entire series.
  18. We all know that Xehanort intends to forge the χ-blade and start another Keyblade War, but why? Does he just want to do it out of sheer curiosity, as the cutscenes of Birth by Sleep seem to imply, or does he intend to use the Keyblade War to tear down the tyranny of light and use the powers of Kingdom Hearts to create the Next World, a World equal in light and darkness, around the darkness that creeps back in, as he writes in the Xehanort's Report? And why was his Heartless trying to open the door to the artificial Kingdom Hearts of Worlds? Was it really to unleash the great darkness of that Kingdom Hearts, as Ansem the Wise wrote in the Secret Ansem's Report? If it was, how did that fit into Xehanort's plan? In addition, Xigbar seems to imply on two separate occasions (once to Zexion and once to Young Xehanort) that no one knows what Xehanort really wants. Does that mean that there is something else that Xehanort is after that won't be revealed until Kingdom Hearts III? In an attempt to arrive at an answer to all these questions, I will write down how I think it all connects. Since the Reports are meant to serve as context to what is going on in the games, I think that what is written in them should be taken more seriously than what is revealed through cutscenes. Therefore, I believe that Xehanort's true intentions are to start a new Keyblade War in order to tear down the tyranny of light and use the power of Kingdom Hearts to create the Next World, a World equal in light and darkness, around the darkness that creeps back in. However, since he seems to only mention this in the Xehanort's Report, it's possible that everyone thinks that he just doing this out of sheer curiosity and that he is keeping his true intentions to create the Next World a secret from everyone, but why? Just doing this out of curiosity seems way worse than create a perfect world. Because of that, maybe there is something else that he plans to do that he is keeping hidden from everyone that won't be revealed until Kingdom Hearts III. As for why Ansem is trying to open the door to Kingdom Hearts, I really have no idea anymore. It's almost as if the most recent games have made the fact that he tried to do that irrelevant, but also are not denying that he did it. True, Ansem the Wise did say in the Secret Ansem's Report that he was trying to unleash the great darkness of his Kingdom Hearts, but how does that fit into Xehanort's plan? It doesn't. I originally thought that Ansem could have been trying to create an artificial Kingdom Hearts for the same reason that Xemnas was: to fill Organization XIII with Xehanort's heart. However, in the Glossary entry for "Kingdom Hearts" in Dream Drop Distance, it says, "The Kingdom Hearts made from the hearts of worlds had a door that led to the realm of darkness; its depths were never fully charted. The Kingdom Hearts made from the hearts of people was believed to have the power to recomplete someone whose heart had been lost." This seems to imply that only the Kingdom Hearts of People was able to fill Organization XIII with Xehanort's heart. Not only that, but it also seems to imply that there was no purpose to the Kingdom Hearts of Worlds since it tells us the purpose of the Kingdom Hearts of People but not the purpose of the Kingdom Hearts of Worlds. If there really was no real purpose for creating a Kingdom Hearts of Worlds, why do it? I think that the best explanation is that Ansem was creating an artificial Kingdom Hearts of Worlds in order to fill Organization XIII with Xehanort's heart, but failed. After this, Xemnas welcomed Roxas into Organization XIII and began sending him on missions to free the hearts for the artificial Kingdom Hearts of People since Ansem's attempt to make a Kingdom Hearts from the hearts of worlds failed. The only reason why Yen Sid had no record of the Kingdom Hearts of Worlds' purpose was that it ceased to exist when the Door to Darkness was sealed and the hearts that made it up were set free and restored before its purpose was made known. That's my best guess anyway. What do you guys think? Is there a reason for the Kingdom Hearts of Worlds to exist? Does Xehanort really intend to create a World that is equal in light and darkness, or does he have something else in mind?
  19. I love LEGO DC Super-Villains. I have always been a fan of the LEGO games not only because of how fun the games are but also because of how much respect Tt Games gives to the source material. My favorite LEGO games of theirs have been the superhero games, and now, thanks to LEGO DC Super-Villains, I have the LEGO DC game that I've always wanted. I have always loved the creative and fun boss fights and the original music in the LEGO games, and this game is no exception. The hub world is a mashup of a lot of the most popular DC locations, such as Gotham City, Metropolis, and Smallville. Every level takes place in a different location in the DC Universe, be it Oa, Themyscira, or Apokolips. The custom character, which was always one of my favorite parts of the LEGO games, is not just an extra thing you can do for fun but is now one of the main characters and plays an important role in the plot of the game. Then, to top it all off, they got back iconic voices for many of the DC characters, including Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as Joker. It definitely seemed like Tt Games went all out with this game and I don't know how they can possibly top themselves.
