KH2FM is amazing but the post-endgame organization XIII fights are INSANE.
Some of them will make you rip your hair out.

It's almost like /v/ is a fucking shithole that hates games they don't play, and once they actually do play video games, they end up, god forbid, enjoying themselves.
I'm happy people realize that's it's not some dumb disney final fantasy game with a shit story and easy as fuck gameplay
I like this series so much, they always try new things too and the Disney shit keeps everything varied
I ordered KH 2.5 and it'll be arriving in the mail today. I'm shooting to 100% this bitch but the last time I played KH was KH2 and that was years ago. Anything I should know?
For me Xaldin and Xemnas were the worst of the bunch. Everything else was manageable, and Xemnas wouldn't have been that bad if you didn't have to keep redoing the first fight everytime you lost.
Fuck Terra though. I don't think I'll ever beat hm.
I'm nearing the end of KH1.
After playing KH2 a few times, I decided to actually play the first one.
The combat starts out kind of stale and boring, but it gets better.
A question though: What happens to Ventus when Sora stabs himself with that keyblade?
>that game you hated when you were younger
>it's 10/10 GOTY now that you've gotten gud
It's highly recommended to choose shield.
Whichever you choose will effect when you learn certain skills. If you go with shield, you get the very useful Once More and Second Chance skills early.
THey can make some battles a whole lot easier. If you choose sword or staff, you won't be getting them until like level 90.
I don't know
I think the excuse is that some of his heart went into Roxas or something? Or maybe that Sora and Ventus' heart are so joined that they're pretty much the same thing?
It will determine how your stats level.
Shield will increase the rate at which HP and Defense increase.
Sword increases Strength and AP.
Wand increases MP and Magic.
If you're playing on critical I'd pick the Shield. Hell, even if you're playing on Proud I'd pick shield.
They only affect the order in which you learn abilities. With Sword, you'll get Second Chance and Once More super late, but you get the earliest Lucky Lucky. Shield gets you early Second Chance and Once More and Wand is just meh, but with an earlier SC/OM than Sword. If you really want to git gud, take Sword; if you want an easier time, pick Shield.
This is completely false and you should not be giving advice because you have no fucking clue what your'e talking about. HP and MP bonuses are entirely based on bonus levels gained from bosses and in fact, the weapon you choose doesn't affect stat growth in any way; only the struggle bat does and even that only gives you a minor boost in the stat of your choice.
Some fragments of Ventus heart where in Roxas from day one which explains why Roxas got feels quickers than other org members.
Some fragments and his keyblade where channeled by Vexen and made into Xion.

That's exactly what it is with less Final Fantasy elements.
Yes, my african.
I love making a huge battle cruiser with loads of daka by forgoing teeny ships.
I also made one smaller version with teeny ships that look like gundam funnels and pretend Sora is a newtype.
If you guys hate pressing buttons so much, you should get an X-Box One™, which comes with the revolutionary Kinect™.
And remember, X-Box One™ is better with Doritos™ and Mountain Dew™.
>sora is a sociopath
>complete disregard for how his actions affect others
I'm actually looking forward to this more than I am for FFXV.
After it stopped being "Final Fantasy with Kingdom Hearts gameplay" and started being "Skyrim: Jrock Edition" I've all but lost interest.
It just wouldn't feel right.
Anyone else hate how the script for the games portray Sora as helpless, weak, etc no matter what batshit crazy fight he aced just preceded him.
Nomura must have low self-esteem for his player character to constantly belittled and condescended even when it makes no sense in the context of the game.
All I want from Kh3 is for them to cut Agrabah and Halloween Town forever. I'm so goddamn sick of both. Fuck, replace Halloween Town with the Haunted Mansion
>Complete one set of worlds
>Cutscene where the Gummi ship falls into a black hole
>Sora and the others wake up in the middle of a forest and find the Mansion and graveyard
>The Phantom is the boss
>Ghost Host narrates the cutscenes
>Hatbox Ghost is your party member
>New summon with Madame Leota, floats around predicting your enemies moves, when the gauge runs out she attacks the opponent with her ghostly instruments
>Stage theme is a music box version of Grim Grinning Ghosts
I don't think they portray him like that at all.
I think they portray him as a bit of a goof, which is what he is.
The good guys constantly go on about how great Sora is. Ansem the Wise pretty much regards him as Jesus.
I'd love that, but you have to consider that anything done with any Disney character has to be approved by Disney.
And they're not going to let a character to be even the slightest bit misrepresented.
Which is why Square has stuck to basically just playing out the movies with each Disney world. And dialogue is basically lifted right out of them.
It's unfortunate, but that's how it is. It would be nice if they did something more in KH3, but I honestly wouldn't expect it.
>mfw I picked Sword
I honestly don't know why people hate it
>I'd love that, but you have to consider that anything done with any Disney character has to be approved by Disney.
Isn't that why the "no meddling in other worlds" thing exists?
I got to Xemnas easy without having it and I picked sword.
Gentlemen, i think we can all agree that the true villain of this series is Sora.
Sora is a complete sociopath that has murdered nobodies in cold blood.
Sora has openly said that nobodies can't feel anything, and thus it's totally ok to kill them.
Sora has made entire worlds suffer and go to ruin, because of his own selfish needs.
Many characters in this series have died, just to keep Sora alive and whole, so that he could continue murdering everyone in his path.
It seems clear to me that the biggest evil force in this universe is Sora, and his rampage must be stopped as soon as possible.
I wouldn't say it's DMC3 level, but I will agree that a lot of the bosses challenge your knowledge of the combat system moreso than anything in the main game.
That's why I love Lingering Will so much. He challenges everything you've learned about KHII's combat and then some.
Not to mention he's the baddest motherfucker in KH lore to date. He doesn't exist because of hearts, darkness, nothingness, or any other KH bullshit. He exists out of sheer FUCK YOOOOOOU willpower
He stays in his world though.
The point is to keep all the Disney worlds separate to minimize legal stuff. Not meddling in other worlds and no telling anyone about other worlds is basically the games way of justifying it.
When you kill a nobody, he doesn't become a somebody.
A nobody only becomes a somebody if he meets his somebody, if he dies when he's on his own, he just fades into the darkness.
Who's died for Sora again? can we get a list going for this monster?
Pretty sure that Axel is a prime example that Nobodies still have some semblance of feelings
that or it's just RoxasVentus heart magic bullshit
Also they need a Buzz Lightyear level too. Maybe Sora and the gang run into Star Command and you train to become a space ranger or something.
It'll probably be just a rehash of the movie it's based on, like every other Disney world.
>That feeling when Roxas bursts forth out of Sora from the sheer existential horror he's enduring while trapped behind the glasswall of Sora''s consciousness
KH is retarded as fuck, but it does have its moments
I will always love pridelands because they put A LOT of work into it with lion-sora and everything, it has it's own separate set of animations, that shit was much more challenging to implement than you think.
You give you an idea, it was a world that they planned for KH1, but gave up on it because it was too challenging from a technical point of view at the time.
They tried again in KH2 and made it work.
There's a lot of shit in KH2 that was planned content in KH1, that's why it's such a solid sequel.
When your sequel has ideas that you couldn't implement in the first game, it will always feel solid and improved, every developer should keep all his scrapped/unimplemented ideas and make sequels containing them.
>we got high this one time, cont remember much
>all I know is we couldnt be fucked making ANOTHER original character in BBS, so we just slightly altered one of them, Soxra I think, something with sora and an x, and used some bullshit "power of the heart" explanation
>i love my job
>A nobody only becomes a somebody if he meets his somebody
>Who are Xehanort, Braig, Dilan, Even, Aeleus, Ienzo, Isa, and Lea
You couldn't be more wrong, asswipe.
Going by that logic, the only action game worth playing is Bayonetta 2 and the only JRPG worth playing is Persona 4.
If you play anything else, you're just playing an inferior game.
Yeah KH2 endgame on critical and data battles and lingering will is the highlight of the entire series.
That video is so fucking bad holy shit. Get with the time gramps, KH2 has gone past that.
THEY WERE GONE FOR SO LONG MAN ITS BEAUTIFUL
Too late, they already did Tron Legacy in Dream Drop Distance.
Yet Xigbar and Saix died. In DDD, it's established that time travel is a thing, and if you pay attention to some of the extra cutscenes, including the
new secret ending, you see that all the characters previously mentioned are returned in their current iterations.
Going by that logic, you can't refute that they're NOT their original somebodies. Also, Lea came back in DDD, even after he faded into darkness.
> Wished I had a netnavi as a kid
> Created my own called Aquaman

Halloween Town is my favorite!
It's always a nice change of pace, if it's cut they need another animated disney spook world because every other world is always happy as fuck
plus HT has best music
but fuck Agrabah we been there so many times
Hunch Back World when?
hell we still haven't done sleeping beauty or snow white
Probably just in case they use squeenix magic to get near-realistic models for KH3 or 4, they can have Jack show up in Atlantica 4: Ariels a fucking whore, because his compass brought him there, and he becomes the main character and just shoots Ursula, so you dont have to face the cunt
>Fucking loved BBS
>Want to play 1 & 2
>Don't want to experience my mother walking in on me playing it
What a predicament.
Dude thats the least impressive video ive ever seen. That is so fucking easy, hes using reflect and the most OP keyblade and hes level 99
Seriously that shit is so easy anyone can do that.
But this on the other hand.
I don't give a fuck. I'm 21 and even when people are over, I have my door open. I definitely don't look like some fat loser or even a skinny meth head. I just like Kingdom Hearts and nobody is going to dislike you for playing something disney related. Be a man and not give a fuck. It's not gay.
Hunch back, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty have all been done.
You seriously haven't played BBS?
Come on, man. I can understand not having played DDD, but you can just emulate BBS.
fuck I don't have a 3DS and am too lazy for BBS
Get ready for Sora's new adventure! Where he adventures in the world of Freaky Friday! Sora has switched bodies with (2003) Lindsay Lohan and must now fight the heartless without the use of his keyblade! Lindsay Lohan has embraced the darkness and is using Sora's body for evil! This will really be a Freaky Friday!
>I now realizes all the franchises I loved when I was a kid were Sony franchises
>played a few Nintendo games when I was like 5 on the SNES and that was it
Sony is the savior we fucking need. Please revive your old IPs.
I really hope DDD is never ported, or at least isn't for several years. I just want to see the confusion and anger that comes from all the people who skipped it because it was "another handheld spin-off."
I can taste it already and it is delicious.
What is the best Sora has ever looked?
Let's count drive forms
>Replaying BBSFM on critical
>Playing KHIIFM on critical for the first time
>Just bought KHCOM for the GBA yesterday on ebay for $11
>Lost my DDD so im gonna buy it soon too

Life is hard as a fanboy
I want there to be people that only played KH1 and 2.
I couldn't even imagine the confusion.
Also, I wonder if we're going to see Tron and friends again. More Quorra would not be a bad thing.
Considering how the fanbase is, they probably only know about Axel if they didn't play DDD.
Fuck I knew about all the info from past FM games and DDD still fucking confused me. Everything during TWTNW was just like, I hear words, I just don't understand what's being said.
>Everything involving Axel
There be a shitstorm a'brewin and I look forward to it heavily.
Aside from like, the people who now have families and couldn't keep up with the series, most people know about Axel. Even the fangirls who didn't buy the game know about Axel.
>everyone who ever gave you a keychain is a keyblade wielder
DDD's original ending was something along the lines of "Xehanort steals Sora to use him as his newest vessel and everyone is depressed at Yen Sid's castle promising to save Sora"
>find out KH series is spread out among 6 different consoles
are you literally shitting me?
It's spread across two now.
They've released two HD collections on the PS3 to consolidate the series.
The most recent one, Dream Drop Distance is on the 3DS.
And KH3 will be PS4 and Xbone.
>1.5 came out a few years ago
>2.5 came out earlier this month
That's pretty much every game in the series, excluding 3D and the fact that two are just cutscene movies, that's the whole series on PS3.
Either that, or emulate the shit.
That's why the HD ReMixes are a thing.
I think that has something to do with the game being on Blu-Ray or something so the only way to fix it would be to play it directly from the console.
You can pause for a few seconds when using one to get by it.
>Trying that fucking Tron minigame on Critical
>every time I fail I have to
>Load the continue
>walk down the corridor and get the summon
>Finally get another attempt
MMMMMM PS3 SURE IS THE WAY TO PLAY
Well, there isn't an english patch for the Final Mix version of KH1.
And the english patch of KH2FM has a few graphical errors and typos.
Same with BBS.
If you can deal with that, then go ahead and emulate.
FM 1.5 is worth the purchase. 2.5... ehh just emulate both of them. The lag in drive modes fucking ruin the mood. You might as well emulate 2FM with the 60fps mod. The downside of skipping 2.5 is that you'll be missing out on the HD models in BBS.
If you're far enough in KH2, Secret Ansem Report 10 is basically DiZ's theory on Namine's existence. She's a unique anomaly even in the weirdness of KH's world of Heartless and Nobodies.
>There are people who don't understand this
>we will never see the card system implemented ever again
>not even the door mechanic
A heart consumed by darkness becomes a creature that shows no compassion, a heartless monster.
A body that has lost it's heart has no personality, they they are a nobody.
At least that's how it used to be before DDD.
Mi negro. I fucking loved it.
It's so divisive though.
They should just ditch KH and make a new IP for it.
No, DDD still keeps it the same.
Xemnas only revealed that it's natural for a nobody to start trying to form a personality. As it obtains memories, it starts to have things it cares about.
And Days illustrates that. Roxas and Xion were mindless zombies at first, but then started to form their own hearts.
I didn't blew no microphones playin KH.
TWEWY also didn't have the sleight mechanics, or the relevance of numbers.
>we have to go back to Castle Oblivion
Seriously? But how are they going to handle things if they forget everything?
Or was that something only Namine did?
Fuck, I forgot everything now. Doesn't help that I only played Chain of Memories, and just know everything else from small comments I've read around the internet.
Lets not pretend like the card system wasn't just a really slow convoluted version of KH 1's gameplay during regular combat.
But during Riku and XIII fights, that shit was fucking amazing.
Gummi ships in KH2 was hands down a complete improvement. It went from a shitty flying simulator with slow ass controls to a fast paced, sin & punishment style shooting segment that felt like you were fighting armies. My only complaint is that there were too few of them
WHICH KH HAS BEST COMBAT SYSTEM NOW
Re:coded for me. Them combos and them keyblade styles and them able to cancel commands into even more commands and ZONE OF RUINRe:coded was breddy fun in that aspect
>mfw playing bbs
>mfw n deep space you fight experiment 221 who is obscure as fuck
we need to fight more characters from Disney tv shows
>Sora, are you certain that you can trust Riku?
What other games do final bosses as well as KH2
3rd Birthday is the worst story Square ever shat out. No question.
Startropics and its sequel
I could never beat the last boss in 1 and don't think I ever beat 2
i wont be mad if they do Lilo and Stitch again but on earth, I liked that movie
>you have to find all of the "cousins" a la 101 dalmatians
I was surprised by how much KH1 held up when I revisited it in 1.5 ReMix. I was expecting myself to not have any tolerance for any of the JRPG weeb storyline or grow tired of mash-x to win gameplay.
But it turned out to be every bit as good as I remembered. Fucking enchanting.
It was Namine that was fucking with Memories but CO is still a strange place. (Im not to sure if the Card system was the Organizations doing if it's part of the castle). Only Aqua knows the exact layout of CO so going back there is guaranteed.
>Get to the quicktime laser event twice
>fail it every time
>what am I doing wrong why am I so casul
>you're supposed to press triangle AND x
To this day I have no idea how I was supposed to understand that or why no one else has reacted to it. I have literally played no other game where I've had to do a quicktime event where I press those particular two face buttons at the same time, nor is it anywhere else in the game. I never see it mentioned and I just don't understand.
>least hype part of the game is throwing a metal gear into the air and slicing its arm off
>most hype part of the game is fighting a US senator 1v1
I fucking love that game so much.
In the middle of that madness where the Triangle prompt is blinking like crazy do you also think I'll notice the promt right under it that's in black the same way the other commands are? Again there's nothing else like it in the gam.
The command menu doesn't change that often so any difference is very eye-catching imo are you sure you weren't distracted by all the flashing colors? maybe you should pause the game and lie down for a while
>Again there's nothing else like it in the gam.
It functions the same way as limits in the game. Attack is replaced by a command and hitting x on it controls Sora while the reaction command is used to control your party member.
Don't even have most of the -ga spells. I was really hoping to be able to beat the game, get the trophy, then go back and do all the optional stuff.
But my damage is just so low I have no hope for World of Chaos.

Felt like the dumbest fucker ever. Skipped that shit and went straight to Agrabah. Do you get anything good from Atlantica?

The original songs (not from the movie) are horrible, the ones that are from the movie are shortened, and they don't have "Kiss the Girl" even though there was a cut scene where it would have fit perfectly.
