  1. There are few videogames that I would buy new game systems for just to play them, and even then, I wouldn't keep buying new systems just to play the next game in the series. However, the Kingdom Hearts series is the only videogame series that I bought new game systems for, just so that I could play the next game in the series, even if I never bought another videogame for that game system. That's how much I love the Kingdom Hearts series. I got into Kingdom Hearts because of my love of Disney, and while the inclusion of Disney worlds and Disney characters is still one of the main things that I love about Kingdom Hearts, I now love it equally, if not more so, for the original characters and original story. Is it perfect? No. But, in a weird way, its imperfections are part of what makes it Kingdom Hearts. So, I love Kingdom Hearts, warts and all.
  2. Great video! While Kingdom Hearts III isn't my favorite game in the series, I do think that it has the best moments in the series. Here are my top 5 favorite moments from Kingdom Hearts III: Number 5: Anti-Aqua The fight against Anti-Aqua, while not my favorite boss fight in the game, is the most memorable boss fight in the game (not including Re:Mind). And it's not just the boss fight itself, but the cutscenes leading up to it and following it that make it so memorable. Number 4: The Sea Salt Trio Reunites Like with the fight against Anti-Aqua, it's not just the Sea Salt Trio reuniting that I love, but everything leading up to it. Plus, the fight against Saix has my favorite boss theme in the entire series: a mashup of the Other Promise and Vector to the Heavens. Number 3: Sora and Kairi Share a Paopu Fruit If there was one thing I wanted out of Kingdom Hearts III, it was Sora and Kairi sharing a paopu fruit. Everyone who still denies that Sora and Kairi aren't a couple after watching that are just fooling themselves. After all, since two people sharing a paopu fruit intertwines their destinies, they are basically unofficially married at this point. Number 2: Union χ I knew going into Kingdom Hearts III that the winners of that contest in Kingdom Hearts Union χ[cross] were going to appear somewhere, but I thought that they would just appear in the credits or something like that. However, I never imagined that they would be the Situation Commands that Sora uses in the epic scene when he uses the light of the past to take on the storm of darkness. This was the most epic moment in the entire Kingdom Hearts series, that is, until... Number 1: The Guardians of Light vs. the Replica Xehanorts The Guardians of Light working together to defeat the Replica Xehanorts was the most epic moment in the entire Kingdom Hearts series. It was amazing getting to see them interact with each other like this, and it all ended with King Mickey facing all of the Replica Xehanorts by himself and wiping them all out with Sora's help. I'm not sure if they could ever make a moment to top this one, but then again, I also thought that about the Union χ scene before Re:Mind was released, so I guess we will just have to wait and see what the future holds.
  3. I think that Master Xehanort's plans changed over time. He originally thought that he needed the X-Blade to start another Keyblade War, but he eventually realized that he needed another Keyblade War to forge the X-Blade. I did think it was odd that only the guardians and some of the seekers had Keyblades. However, that was indeed the second Keyblade War. As Master Xehanort said when he had all thirteen keys needed to forge the X-Blade, "Now...the Keyblade War will finally reach its conclusion!"
  4. From the very beginning of the Kingdom Hearts series, the return of Kingdom Hearts was treated as a good thing. In the story that Kairi’s Grandma told her, she said, “But the true light still sleeps, deep within the darkness. That’s why the worlds are still scattered, divided from each other. But someday, a door to the innermost darkness will open. And the true light will return.” However, somehow it started being treated as a bad thing by Kingdom Hearts III. Before the fight with Ansem, Xemnas, and Young Xehanort, Riku said to Master Xehanort, “If you do summon Kingdom Hearts, we will defeat you, and we will close it again.” And that is exactly what they did. So, why this change? Why is the return of Kingdom Hearts suddenly treated as a bad thing? I have an idea as to why that is. I think that in order for Kingdom Hearts to reunite all worlds, it was going to have to purge them, which is what Master Xehanort wanted. Everyone and everything would be consumed by darkness and destroyed just so the World could be returned to the way it used to be: one single united world that was equal in light and darkness. Therefore, even though many have thought that Kingdom Hearts' return would be a good thing, such as Kairi’s Grandma, they did not realize that it would actually be a bad thing.
  5. For me, it's really close between Kairi and Xion, but in the end, Kairi is my favorite.
  6. Now that the Dark Seeker Saga has reached its conclusion, I thought it would be fun to rank some of my favorite things that the saga gave us (some of these lists may include spoilers for Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind). Best Games Top 10 Bosses Top 10 Heroes Top 10 Keyblades Top 10 Music Top 10 Villains Top 10 Worlds But these are just my personal favorites from the Dark Seeker Saga. What are yours?
  7. It's no secret that there were many things about Kingdom Hearts III that left fans feeling disappointed. However, from everything we've seen and heard, it looked like the DLC, Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind was going to address many of those issues. Did it succeed, or did it drop the ball? This review will be split into two parts. The first part will be my review of Re:Mind. The second part will be my thoughts on whether or not Re:Mind fixed the big issue I had with Kingdom Hearts III. EDIT: I somehow accidently trapped part 2 of my review within part 1, and I have no idea how to fix it. So, if you're looking for it, that's where it is. Part 1:
  8. I don't think that there is one that I find the most interesting because they all have interesting things in them. That being said, I gave my vote to Ansem's Report from Kingdom Hearts 1 because it's actually mentioned at the beginning of the game and it gives you backstory on who Ansem is and what led him to become a villain (until he was revealed to be Xehanort's Heartless in Kingdom Hearts II that is).
  9. I gave my ranking some thought, and I switched some of the movies around. These are the changes that I made to my ranking:
  10. Now that the Skywalker Saga has finally come to a close, I thought that I'd give my ranking of all nine movies, as well as a brief explanation for why each of the movies is where it is.
  11. In the Nomura interview in the Kingdom Hearts III Ultimania, Nomura was asked who the seven new black pieces that Eraqus places on the chessboard during the epilogue are. The Q&A went like this: So, unless Nomura is not telling us the truth, it seems that Ava will indeed be one of the seven darknesses in the new saga. As for how she will get there, who knows? I don't think Luxu did anything to her, at least not in a way that would prevent her from reuniting with the others in the Epilogue, since he said, "I guess Ava didn't make it after all," after looking around for her. And when accused of excluding her, he said, "Ava had her own mission, and she carried it out." If I were to make a guess, in trying to defy the Master of Masters, Ava actually did exactly what the Master of Masters intended for her. She will probably continue to try to defy the Master of Masters in the new saga. She may even ally herself with Sora and the others. However, she will eventually be brought into her master's ranks once again, whether she is convinced to join him or she is forced to.
  12. For me, good completion awards can be anything from secret endings to concept art, just as long as it's more than just an achievment you unlock that declares that you did it. That being said, I personally think the best kind of completion award is something that can be used in game (such as a powerful weapon or a special item). This also means that I would either like the game's levels to be replayable or like an option to carry over everything you've unlocked into a new game so that you can use your new unlocked prize in every level in the game.
  13. The things I am most excited for are the new story content and the bosses that will be a part of the new story. I'm not as excited for the new boss battles against the seekers of darkess as others are, but I'm excited to see what the boss fights against Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, and Vanitas are like, and the new screenshot of the fight against Ansem just makes me more excited for it.
  14. I'm glad that Kingdom Hearts III is getting some recognition. I'm a bit disappointed that it was only "Gold" and not "Platinum" for "Best Soundtrack", but I'm happy that it placed in four categories, especially that it was "Platinum" for "Best Role-Playing Game". I honestly wasn't expecting it to do this well.
  15. I always thought that Cloud's story was wrapped up in Kingdom Hearts II. I always thought it was implied that Cloud eventually defeated Sephiroth. After all, Sora did say that Cloud went somewhere else to defeat the darkness inside him. In my opinion, the only thing that they could possibly do is show Tifa find Cloud again, but I don't think that's necessary.
  16. The new Re:Mind trailer that was shown at the State of Play revealed a lot of new details. One of those details is that there is going to be three new stories/episodes, which are listed like this: The additional story: Re Mind Limitcut episode and 13 boss battles Secret episode and boss battle I don't know for sure what each of these stories/episodes will include as far as story content, but if I were to make a guess based on what we saw in the trailer (as well as what we saw in previous trailers), I would say that this is what is included in each of them: Re:Mind The story follows Sora as he experiences each of the battles in the Keyblade Graveyard from the other guardians' perspectives in his search for Kairi I think that this is when we will get to play as the other characters in the new scenerios that Nomura talked about, and these new scenerios can either take place before Sora arrived (which I think will be the case with Aqua and Ventus' battle) or after Sora left (which I think will be the case with Roxas, Axel, and Xion's battle) I think that the last fight Sora will see before finally finding Kairi will be the battle between the guardians of light and the Replica Xehanorts in the sky, which I think happened while they were trying to close Kingdom Hearts and Sora, Donald, and Goofy were at Scala ad Caelum, but I don't know when it happened since Master Xehanort absorbed the replicas after Sora, Donald, and Goofy defeated them, but I do have two ideas: Maybe the guardians of light fought the Replica Xehanorts at the same time that Sora, Donald, and Goofy were fighting them, which means that, whenever the Replica Xehanorts teleported away from Sora, Donald, and Goofy, they were actually teleporting to the other battle against the guardians of light Since the Replica Xehanorts are replicas, maybe there were more Replica Xehanorts made that challenged the guardians of light I think that the final boss of this new story will be the boss that we see Kairi fighting in the trailer, which looks like armored Xehanort with the thirteen Keyblades that forged the X-Blade hovering behind him Limitcut Episode This is the one episode that I haven't the slightest clue as to what will happen during it, but maybe this will be the episode where we see the cutscene of the conversation between Young Xehanort and the Master of Masters This might also be when we see the cutscene of the conversation between Xigbar and Luxord and when we find out how Xion returned Basically, I think that this might be an episode that reveals extra story that none of the guardians of light were around to see Maybe those cutscenes are rewards for beating the data battles; for example, you might unlock the cutscene of the conversation between Young Xehanort and the Master of Masters for beating Young Xehanort's data battle or the cutscene of the conversation between Xigbar and Luxord for beating either Xigbar or Luxord's data battle Secret Episode I think that the Secret Episode will follow Riku as he tries to find out what happened to Sora, but I don't think that he will be the only one looking for answers, just that we will follow his search for answers I don't know if Raidiant Garden will be playable, but if I were to make a guess, I would say that it isn't and we just see the Final Fantasy characters in cutscenes However, maybe I'm wrong and Radiant Garden is a world that is explorable in the Secret Episode; after all, it wouldn't be the first time in the series you could explore a new world in a Secret Episode By the end of the episode, I think that Riku and Aqua will go searching for Sora in the Realm of Darkness (and maybe some of the other heroes will join them), and somehow Riku will end up finding his way to the world that he appeared in in the secret ending, which means that by the end of all of these new stories/episodes, I think we will probably know how both Sora and Riku got to where they are in the secret ending But these are just my thoughts. What do you guys think these new stories/episodes will include?
  17. Ok, I never thought I'd say this, but this DLC just might make Kingdom Hearts III my favorite Kingdom Hearts game. No, really. No trailer has ever made me squeal so much in my life.
  18. Kingdom Hearts III was definitely leagues above the other Kingdom Hearts games when it came to its visuals, and the character animations are no exception. The characters had so much life in this game, and it's one of the things I love about it.
  19. I'm a big fan of BbS too. I think it is right up there with the numbered titles. However, I do like the numbered titles a bit more. It is really close though. That just goes to show how good all of these games are.
