    Ah right, 358/2 that was it.

    It's kind of annoying how Kingdom Hearts keeps jumping around consoles. I might need to review some plot summaries before KH3 shows up, or see if I can grab 1.5/2.5 for "cheap".

    It's 30 bucks on Amazon right now

    People really gotta get over this hang up about numbered KH games.

    The handheld games played and looked like crap compared to the main games, and the fact that kh2 used info from CoM to help explain the plot was pretty bs considering not everyone who owned a ps2 also had a gba.

    The fact that you'd need to own like 7 different platforms to get the full story up until the PS4 rereleases was fuckin dumb. For those that that wanted more kingdom hearts the way they already enjoyed it was a huge letdown.

    I liked Chain of Memories on GBA. Was my first hint into something more behind the KH plot right before it went screaming off the rails.

    i'm just glad that they eventually got their shit together and compiled everything.

    Now if they could just stick to that going forward.

    I kind of doubt we'll see another Kingdom Hearts after 3, so you'll probably get your wish.

    It was a pretty big fake-out for me, since the actual gameplay IS just a very basic and reductionist retread of kh1, and that's definitely how it was marketed. The important bits are all between the gameplay parts.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 is the conclusion of the "Dark Seeker Saga"

    no, I don't know what that means either, but I hope it means it actually wraps shit up

    Probably referring to Xehanort

    But it makes me wonder if there's another "saga" planned after that

    Yeah for some reason they changed the controls just enough between BBS and DDD to not play nearly as well

    Where in BBS you could use L2/R2 to cycle between your ability wheel, DDD you had to use the directional buttons, which usually involved having to stop moving. And while you COULD change that particular mapping to go back to the trigger buttons, it also made locking on L1+R1, which was a pain.

    They'll probably keep making them as long as they keep making money (and Nomura feels interested, and even then they could just put someone else in charge of writing).

    Remember, Kingdom Hearts χ is still running. And plot-relevant. And pretty awful, from what I've heard.

    You don't just kill off a big brand like that without reason.

    After some thought, I'd say 358/2 Days is worse

    The mission system is boring as hell, and the difficulty curve can get pretty brutal.

    358 had a lot of potential; it played similar to KH2, but it really dragged

    By the way has KH2 fixed the "bug" where you'd Drive Form into Anti-Form at the worst times and then proceed to get ultra-murdered depending on the boss?

    Excepting the fact that you can't heal in in it or easily exit it.

    But I'd totally use Anti Form if I could choose it.

    It's not a bug. There's a whole system behind anti-form. http://kingdomhearts.wikia.com/wiki/Anti_Form#Mechanics

    That's why I put "bug" in quotation marks. Punishing me in a boss fight and getting me murdered is a dumb mechanic because whoops my limit break just screwed me.

    You can in KH2 final mix, at least.
    The special ability from the weapon you get by beating Roxas during the story gives you a keyblade that will either make you turn into Final Form, or Anti form, whenever you choose Valor, Wisdom or Master Form, until you've actually learned Final Form. Initial usefulness is to let you get Final Form faster, but once you get it, using any of the other forms while the weapon is equipped, is guaranteed to put you into anti-form

    i beat the first form of the final boss in kh2 in anti form, it was kind of a great organic moment

    also stilts I think the lack of bullshit platforming generally puts everything above kh1 for me

    I once watched a level 1 lingering will no damage run using anti-form(I guess it'd kind of have to be no damage, on account of definitely dying if you ever got hit by anything)

    When I played this game 11 years ago Anti-Form was a dumb thing I hated because it got me killed repeatedly at the worst times because I dared to use my Drive Forms regularly.

    I had DDD, but then my 3DS' L and R buttons stopped working and I haven't bought a new one/gotten mine repaired yet.

    I'd like to play it, but I'm not thrilled at the idea of buying one of the rereleases just for it, or playing half the game again.

    My favorite moment in KH1 or 2 by a pretty wide margin was thinking you were going up against a big Square-ass Square boss near the end of the first game and then Chernabog, who is for all intents and purposes the devil, rises from the mountaintop

    they made sure that 2 had plenty of Square-ass Square bosses at the end though. Possibly the most of any game.

    I dunno if they were necessarily going for the head-fake there; they start to play Chernabog's music from the movie as soon as the area loads

    That's fair, though if you hadn't watched Fantasia as many times as I had by that point you might not have recognized Night on Bald Mountain

    Anyway it was still cool, I thought Chernabog was the coolest fight in that game in some ways (but it's been a decade and change, of course)
