Not literally rap. I mean talk.
So, I like these games. Not because of the story or anything, but because it combines two of my favorite genres: RPGs, and wailing on dudes. And with a new game on the horizon, what better time to hold forth on this fine series of games?
Speaking of which:
I didn't actually play much of the first one, I actually rented it a few months before 2 came out just for a larf. I got far enough in it to know that I'd be down for some more, though. Plus it had Tarzan.
ah, Chain Of Memories. The freak game. I didn't finish this one either, for some reason. Probably had to do with the card thing, it was pretty weird. Though they did remake it for the PS2, and I'll probably get to it someday.
Alright, here's where the rubber meets the road. This is the game I really got into. Barring an hours-long intro that makes Taris look like a joyride, this is where the game really hit its stride. The combat was much improved from the original, the camera didn't suck, the gummi ship stuff was actually kinda fun, and it was just all around good times. Except hanging out with creepy photorealistic Johnny Depp, anyways. Also, Sephiroth is a dick
(there was a cell phone game right around this time too but fuck that)
358/2 Days is the newest game in the series, coming out next Tuesday. I'm pretty excited for it, even though you have to play as Roxas, and he's kind of a terrible character. But he dual-wields his keyblade thingy, so, awesome. Also, this one has multiplayer missions, which I'll probably never get to play since they're not over wi-fi.
this one's coming out for the PSP sometime, I don't know anything about it, but I'll probably buy it.
Utter fucking nonsense.
Well, if I did a proper post-up on all the characters in these games we'd be here all day. The main character of most of the games is Sora, a kid who woke up on an island one day with no memory of where he'd been before. (I think, I'm not fact checking this shit) He lives on the island with his two best friends, Kairi and Riku. Then Riku disappears and the game happens. And then Sora meets Goofy and Donald Duck, two characters nobody had heard of prior to this game. They have to rescue this mouse guy who is their king, who nobody has ever heard of either, and to do that they have to traverse a bunch of worlds based on movies nobody's ever seen.
But that's story and who cares. There's a guy voiced by Christopher Lee, so that guy is automatically the best guy in the whole game.
Also Bruce Boxleitner shows up.
but you guys know all this shit already so what say we dispense with the formalities, shall we
who's excited for this fruity shit besides me, huh
