Looking at the completion numbers of the worlds, I can't help but think that 2018 is very optimistic. They made considerable progess, no questions asked, but now that the models look a bit better, the lighting is suddenly off and colors are overly saturated. I'm not trying to be overly negative 60-70% and an unknown percentage for the last section appears like they'll have to rush to release it this year.

    Man, my 2am grammar. *I wouldn't mind if *it's not like they could simply and the first post is missing a 'but' before 60-70%.

    Well of course, though to be fair, FFXV isn't all that bad. It could've been worse, like another game that was stuck in Development Hell...Duke Nukem: Forever ring any bells?

    Still, I'm not getting myself hyped for KH3. I'm looking forward to it, but I'd prefer to be surprised by what it may have to offer.

    It was far from bad. What I'm referring to are the immense holes in the plot. Granted, they more or less started over and only had 3 years in the end, but you could definitely see that it could have used some more time so it wouldn't have felt so incomplete. And adding all that stuff later as paid DLC isn't exactly my cup of tea. I see the reason for DLCs and I'm not strictly against them, but I don't like getting story relevant stuff through them.

What's worse than EX medals having no mercy is when they're barred behind VIP quests. What the heck, SENA?

    It's worse. First of all, the maximum you can get is 7. Which is not a lot if you have the money. Then you certainly don't want only one unorbed copy but some traits alongside it. And what about the people who saved up for this medal in particular?It's a huge slap in the face,especially since that one wasn't really necessary at all.

    It's not out of the question of course since we do not know how long the last few percent take but if we think about equal percentage and put that into the last 3 1/2 years of development, that would be a lot of work to do in 5 months. It even made me think 2018 is very optimistic if the game should be as perfect as possible and not incomplete/loaded with bugs.

    Yeah, I guess you're right. Then September or November would be more realistic when it comes to a release month! That way, Nomura and his team can be able to fine tune everything and make the final adjustments before release! But yeah, I'm sure the team will improve in the remaining months, and it'll end up in KHIII being the most beautiful game out there!

    And well hey, who knows? Riku's new Keyblade could just be a base form, just like how Soul Eater was the base form for Way To Dawn, ya know? And about Void Gear, it does look beefed up! Maybe it's because of the lighting and the textures, ya know?

Sometimes, when I think about the character model problem in KH3, I wonder if a partial problem is the outsourcing. I mean, it's fairly common but it was announced 2015 after the engine switch and accordong to the article about it, the Indian company is creating assets for texturing and character modeling. It's also concerning that FFVII decided to switch back to in-house development for quality reasons (albeit from a different company.) Hard to tell how much that has to do with it.

I don't really get why a possible Frozen world would generate so much hate. Yes, the movie was mediocre, but people seem to be hating on it mostly for the fact that it's popular. Also the fear that it's going to be a musical world seems unwarranted. I'd like a Frozen world simply for the fact that it's a different color scheme and it would suit KH.

    Merry Christmas to you two as well! :D
    I also agree on Marvel/Star Wars. The franchises are great on their own, no questions asked, but they do not fit very well into KH. First of all, their respective universes are huge. Deciding on what to use would leave the worlds incomplete and the fans disappointed, not to mention that the Keyblade and Kingdom Hearts as an entity might not be as powerful anymore in comparison to Infinity Stones, etc.

    Another factor is that the movies play with the concept of several worlds already. What annoyed me about Deep Space was that KH made such an issue about visiting worlds being such a problem because the pathways are locked. These worlds would mess with that completely.
    Additionally, the amount of characters and the plot would leave little room for the original plot and Sora & Co. Just to scratch the surface of the topic why they would not fit.

Seeing the allegedly leaked screenshots, I always feel a little conflicted about transformations. I love the movie, but there's this fear that a change in appearance could make the original plot look ridiculous or just let us replay the movie like in KH2...

    I don't remember how it worked in the previous games, but did the forms carry over in the cutscenes? Valor form etc.
    Dec 24 2017 06:23 PM
  • Merilly's Photo
    Merilly
    Yeah they did. Though those forms are okay for me since they just implement a different color and minor design changes. However, in 0.2 they did not, which was a good thing but understandable either way since it was optional and there were too many options. Transformations always carried over though, so I think the same will apply in 3, considering we saw toy Sora in the cutscenes.
    Dec 24 2017 07:17 PM
  • Shuy's Photo
    Shuy
    Yeah, you are probably right. I'm not sure if they will carry over in the end. I never really minded too much. They could simply turn off the transformation before a cutscene

    I can understand that interest. Mainly because it's the foundation for the present and without some of these things, our life would be quite different.

    Personally, I think Nioh is very far off from Bloodborne. There may be instances where the style overlaps, but if I had to say, Nioh is leans more toward the Japanese culture and Bloodborne more toward visualization of Lovecraft's works?

    I enjoyed Bloodborne for its atmosphere. The gameplay was fun and some of the stories stuck with me. But in the end I would suggest looking at it online first.

    It's actually more like the last two hours are very condensed and there are a lot of open questions due to the time travel components. Of course time travel is subjected to rules, which makes it a little less complicated but it's still not clear how some elements work and how they will be incorporated into KH3. As per usual... And it's just the gist.

    No, I don't. We're very busy during excursions with taking notes and doing our assignments that there's hardly any time to take photos. Unfortunately, because there are some nice places.
    That's too bad x.x Rain makes it less enjoyable. >_<
