#1929710 Quinton Flynn and Richard Epcar haven't started voice work

Posted by Dio Brando on 26 February 2017 - 07:23 AM

Guess Richard Epcar might've been flustered when seeing his script by the amount of time he has to say the word "Darkness" xD

#1928571 A Man Who Hates KH

Posted by Dio Brando on 21 February 2017 - 08:41 AM

And people have the right to not like a video.

No one said he has to like KH, or that anyone else has to. But that he shouldn't be surprised to get so much backlash for this video. Would happen with any community. Not because he doesn't like it, but the way he made this video.

So,what you're saying is:You can't criticize Kingdom Hearts on a KH site


You guys couldn't be satisfied with just saying:I disagree with you but it's your opinion and that's fine


You guys are such a welcoming community.


Don't pull the "it'll happen in any community" bullshit.Cuz that just shows that the community are a bunch of overly sensitive fanboys who're ready to attack review sites and random people for not liking their games


No wonder the series gets more convoluted and keep making the same mistakes if all Nomura hears is how perfect and "Flawless" cuz most of the deillusionals in the fandom can't just bear to see an opposing opinion and would try their damnest to shut it down before the people who made the games see it

#1928566 A Man Who Hates KH

Posted by Dio Brando on 21 February 2017 - 08:20 AM

I can take criticism, what I won't stand for is nit picking. I have saw pretty almost no where where he said "this have some good points, I can understand how some people like it." That is one of my issues with reviewers, they make trivial issues bigger than they should be and say "this game is an unplayable mess because of one thing."

Honestly what do you define as a nitpick or as a criticism?


And I want you right now to tell me at least ONE bad thing about KH


One issue with it's plot in particular or gameplay



The man doesn't need to be an official reviewer to give his opinion





Kingdom Hearts isn't perfect.Deal with it.Deal with the fact that maybe....just maybe....people have the right to not like it

#1928359 A Man Who Hates KH

Posted by Dio Brando on 20 February 2017 - 02:30 PM

He is allowed to do that, but he needs to have it be constructive. All he has said was that "this is bad, that's bad, this is bad, that's also bad".

I'm sorry, but no one is going to take you seriously streaming if you are just going to be a negative person.

ok ok let us be honest here for a second with ourselves


And I wanna try really badly not to be rude


Regardless if the criticism was constructive or not,you guys never gave anyone a chance the moment they say any negative thing about Kingdom Hearts


I remember posting the video of Birth by Sleep The turning point here and people before watching 10 minutes of it lambasted it as "wa wa wa he's too negative he just came to hate on the series" even if in the video I linked back then the guy WAS A KH FAN WHO SPEEDRUN KH GAMES.


You guys can't take anything negative towards Kingdom Hearts,plain and simple.


Constructive or not you'll shun it down the moment it surfaces and the same goes for the series's director Tetsuya Nomura who I swear this fanbase puts him on the same level as God or something


I would've believed your words about "constructive criticism" if you or anyone on this site ever actually allowed criticism towards the series to be passed anyway when pitchforks are risen on almost every thread I made and some had people telling me to get out of here


What I'm trying to say is:Learn to be open and accepting towards criticism even if it's towards your most favorite franchise of all time

#1928328 A Man Who Hates KH

Posted by Dio Brando on 20 February 2017 - 01:01 PM

He has every right too, but he as right to do it, as long as he has criticism. The video just shows him acting in a very negative overtone. No offense to op, but he pretty much acted like nothing in the world could please him.

I do agree that op can hate it, but there's this slight overtone of negativity in his videos.

So what?His video wasn't a review,it was from a livestream and reactions from that can be raw


Did he say something like you guys suck for liking it?No?Then he did nothing wrong as far as I can tell


I had lots of my favorite games being disliked by dozens of people as someone who plays Pokemon and Shin Megami Tensei yet I don't let that bother me as long as the one hating the game isn't insulting me on a personal level


It's a video game,Kingdom Hearts as a brand won't get destroyed if one person didn't like it.And I've seen much much worse hate on the series than this and that's coming from me who bitch about KH's plot and characters all the darn time

#1928291 A Man Who Hates KH

Posted by Dio Brando on 20 February 2017 - 04:00 AM

A few years ago I finished playing KH 1.5 as part of a bet I made with a friend. My friend was a huge KH fan and mentioned how excited he was for it and how great it was many times, spawning arguments between us both. Finally we decided that the only way to settle the score was for me to actually play the game, start to finish with an open mind, and find out if the game really was garbage.


Turns out I was right! At least, my anticipation of how much I would hate the game was. I played through both games on 1.5 and even watched the cutscene marathon, and although I found parts of the GBA remake more enjoyable than the original, I still found both the games to be subpar. I also made a video on youtube (https://youtu.be/YAZbbHpJ8DI) that was a cut down version of the entire final boss fight, which originally took me around 3 hours. It's garnered some hate from KH fans.


The point of this thread however is not to take a dump on your game. I just want to know: when you see a guy like me that thinks KH is deplorable, do you assume I just have no taste in videogames? Do you hate me? Or do you think there's merit to not liking some or certain aspects of the game? I've not seen such a reaction from any other game I've hated and that's bizarre.

You have every right to not like a game regardless of everyone else's opinion about it


It's just the KH fandom is so butthurt and full of themselves to the point that they get offended by the slightest amount of criticism a KH game get or it's director Nomura receives 


I had dozens of people here who told me to leave the site just because I said I don't like Birth by Sleep


And I fell out of the series two years ago.There are much much better RPGs out there that took the concept KH had and did it thousand times better without the convoluted bullshit

#1927714 Final Fantasy XV-Official Thread.

Posted by Dio Brando on 18 February 2017 - 04:53 PM

13 was more enjoyable than 15. Probably because I like ATB more than the horrid combat physics that 15 has.

Eh I think XV is waaaay better than XIII by virtue of better characters at least


As for the battle system.........Would've been fine if it didn't encourage you to use auto attack.Sure you can choose manually but it;s much slower and once you cast the scan spell Libra on an enemy auto attack will pick the weaknesses for you.That and the fact that A\they purposefully halt your level progression until the next chapter so you can never grind and B\Every boss is the same strategy.Ravager until he staggers,switch to commando to deal massive damage,heal with medic if you need to,rather rense repeat for every single boss............not to mention the absurd amount of HP that even normal enemies had which made battles a chore to go through


And while I didn't like XV's leveling up system,at least it wasn't the big fat lie that is the crystarium 



Again,my opinion so feel free to disagree since I'm just telling my personal experience

#1927698 Final Fantasy XV-Official Thread.

Posted by Dio Brando on 18 February 2017 - 04:10 PM

FF9 did best at that, you got to see almost everything that happened. You played as Steiner, Garnet, Vivi etc. Even FF7 let you control Cid and see the reactor incident through playable flashbacks. 


Be honest, even FF13 didn't offscreen anything really. FF13 split the party up and let you experience the game through more than 1 player's view.

Well I give XIII that if the story and writing wasn't complete garbage (in my opinion...more power to you if you enjoy it and I respect that)

You guys can't parse a translation like it's a carefully prepared statement. It's the translator that decides the wording. Tabata speaks from the cuff, in Japanese, and someone else translates it to English.

It's the job of the translator to accurately convey the text and we have the right to say our interpretations based on what we got


This isn't a conspiracy where someone would risk their job just to mistranslate someone's words on purpose.


What you're basically saying is :He's someone from square enix therefore he can't be wrong


Cuz I have the feeling if it wasn't a Square Enix guy people wouldn't have defended him.This white knighting is the reason the series's quality has dropped to the ground cuz people just don't have the courage to admit that there is something wrong with their favorite brand thinking it might make them less "true-fans" or some nonsense


A true fan would want the series to get better and learn from it's mistake not just set there and say "It's final fantasy,therefore it's automatically good and can't be criticized"

#1927664 FF beginners for KH fans

Posted by Dio Brando on 18 February 2017 - 12:21 PM

I have never played a Final Fantasy game before, but if I ever decide to do so I'd like to know:

Is it necessary to play all the games to understand the whole story?

If the answer to the above question is no, please list all the FF games worth playing.

Are there spinoffs of certain numbered games that are required to be played to understand the story of the games?

Using the KH story as a standard, how convoluted are the stories in these games and will I have trouble following any of them?

Again using KH as a standard, how difficult or complex is the gameplay, and how similar is to the KH gameplay?

Finally, on average how long would it take to complete one of these games?

No,you don't need to play all games as each game has a different story


As for which games I recommend,well that depends on you being open minded towards turn based battle systems and not expect the series to be similar to KH


Because if yes I recommend the following:FF4,FF6,FF7,FF9 and FF10


If no,then the only game that's remotely "similar" to KH is FF15 which is an average game at best



On average an FF game takes about 30 to 35 hours to beat but games like 15 takes 20 hours to beat the main story 


The stories are not as convoluted and messy as KH(except the XIII trilogy which was really bad) and for the most part they have engaging stories with endearing characters and an interesting world and lore

#1927626 New FF7 Remake Screenshots!

Posted by Dio Brando on 18 February 2017 - 08:15 AM

It's only temporary HUD

I know since the game is still VEEEEEEEEEEEEERY early in development


I'm just expressing future concerns since in FFXV when it was versus there was a plan to let switch between characters mid battle but then it got changed


I hope VII remake doesn't become a copy of XV's battle system since XV sold a lot

Posted by Dio Brando on 18 February 2017 - 08:09 AM

Cloud and Barret having 1600+ from the beginning?


Also I hope to God they keep the option of switching characters cuz I'd be pissed if I only control Cloud in battle
