Y'know what the Book of Prophecies really is?

28 January 2017 - 01:13 AM



It's literally Boingo's stand that can see the future in Jojo Part 3:Stardust Crusaders







(SPOILERS)Does the ending of 0.2 hints at a possible 2.9?

27 January 2017 - 03:38 AM

Ok before we jump to conclusions.Hear me out


if you remember,in the ending for 0.2.Riku and Mickey goes on a journey to save Aqua and before they leave Yen Sid gives them two suitcases(which I assume has Black Coats too?)



This aligns perfectly with Nomura's statement about KH3 being a while away before release so a 2.9 release at 2018 would financially make sense before doing a KH3 release in 2019


I might be wrong and I do hope I wrong but it really feels like 2.9 is going to happen


Sure people say "But Nomura said that the game after 2.8 is absolutely positively 100% KH3" but that's what Nomura has been saying since Dream Drop Distance and since then we got Chi\Unchained X,1.5,2.5(why are those not on Xbox One is beyond me) and then after that he said KH3 is the next one and then 2.8 was announced.



I really feel that they're gonna make Riku and Mickey's journey to the Realm of Darkness into either it's own game or a part of an upcoming collection where they'll either delay 1.5+2.5 to add that into it or they might remaster 358\2 days into something playable and then add that to it



I'm not saying I'm impatient cuz I could care less if KH3 isn't a 2017 or 2018 game cuz if they're not turning Riku and Mickey's journey into it's own package(remember that 0.2 was not the only number that appeared in the secret episode of Birth by Sleep) or have it happen off-screen in KH3 or have it be a DLC episode(Yes DLC will happen eventually to KH)



Wait a second(0.2 SPOILERS)

25 January 2017 - 06:10 AM

If you remember in the Blank Point secret scene in the original Birth by Sleep,Aqua was surprised to learn that the boy saving the worlds weren't Terra or Ven but actually Sora............which was told to her by Ansem the Wise



But according to 0.2 Aqua did know from Mickey that it's Sora and Riku that have been saving the worlds this whole time(technically Sora only but whatever) so why was she surprised to the point of tearing up in Blank Point if she already knew this from Mickey before she met up with Ansem?



That's...........kind of a plothole that was caused by them adding Aqua to the ending of KH1 saying that she was there the whole time and she's the reason Riku was safe and that Kingdom Key D was hidden in Destiny Island the whole time


It really feels like they forgot Aqua's conversation with Ansem when they were writing 0.2 because if she knew this detail about Sora and Riku from Mickey why was she so surprised when Ansem told her the exact same thing later


Cuz in Blank Point,at the time of the writing of BBS Aqua has no idea what was going on outside the realm of darkness beyond discovering the fallen worlds


And before someone pull a weak excuse off "Oh she stayed too long in the darkness so she didn't knew or forgot".............mind you she remembered Mickey after ten years since time flows differently in the Realm of Darkness and the year between KH1 and 2 would be significantly shorter in the Realm of Darkness


I've said this time and again but it feels like Nomura is just making things up as he goes and forcefully tries to connect every single game and character to each and every plot point no matter how much of a cop out those connection feels or if they serve the plot in a good way.Dream Drop Distance in particular is the worst offender of this with the introduction of time travel cuz of course now Vanilla Ice.....ahem I mean Ansem SoD can just do that which made things way more convoluted than they should,not to mention the whole oh Organization XIII's true purpose the whole time was to form the 13 darknesses to fight the 7 lights to form TRUE X-Blade which was split to 20 pieces even though according to Xehanort Report number VII in Birth by Sleep that the only way to form the X-blade was to fuse to hearts of pure light and darkness together(And if you don't believe me here is the whole script for Report Number 7)

[/spoiler]  Xehanort's Report VII


" I have uncovered the Keyblade's ultimate mystery. You see, besides the three families of Keyblades, there is another "Key Blade." While it may sound the same when spoken, it is notated uniquely: "χ-blade." And make no mistake, while it resembles a normal Keyblade, it is something altogether different. Keyblades are said to be man-made counterparts to Kingdom Hearts. The χ-blade, however, coexists with Kingdom Hearts. It is only forged when two hearts of equal power intersect--one heart of pure darkness, one heart of pure light. At the time of its forging, Kingdom Hearts appears. It must be noted, though, that this Kingdom Hearts is special. Unlike the Kingdoms brought about forcibly and artificially through the collection of hearts, THIS Kingdom Hearts is a perfect and complete union of ALL the worlds' hearts. Surely it was over this that the ancient Keyblade War was fought. If so, the walls that divide the worlds today are of little consequence. With the χ-blade, all their hearts could be instantly reunited--and the Keyblade War, refought." [/spoiler]



More and more retcons and connections are added up on the fly


Oh and Sora's whole "secret" thing is the same thing he did in DDD...........he just went back just to say thanks to the damn Dream Eaters and missed a looooooooong exposition dump that would've helped him in his adventure and on top of that.........He never even mentioned all the hallucinations he saw of Aqua and Terra or his reunion with Roxas or him seeing Namine and Xion again before he was abducted by Xehanort................HEY SORA THIS IS CRUCIAL INFORMATIONS YOU MORON  WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL MICKEY AND YEN SID ABOUT IT BUT NOPE HERPADERP MA POKEMANS NEEDED SOME PRAISE DATS MORE IMPORTANT......dumbass



Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Official thread

20 January 2017 - 03:34 PM

Note:If an official thread has already been made for this,notify me then merge it with the original thread if there is one63234309648351ae0609df6fdf0ecbd992521039

I've noticed a severe lack of Jojo here over at KH13 so I thought y'know what?We need an official thread for anything and everything Jojo


Couple of rules though:


1\When discussing parts of the manga,remember to put spoilers on crucial endgame moments 


2\Be respectful during discussions


3\DO A JOJO POSE(just kidding)



There will be an additional extra rule added when an adaptation of future parts get announced but I'll save that for another time

Tetsuya Nomura's lack of transparency and commitment

11 January 2017 - 09:12 AM

I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this but at the very least please PLEASE be respectful.I'm fine with you disagreeing with me but don't hurl insults at me.Ok?Good



I just HAD to talk about this in the light of the recent news




People like to call me an ungrateful impatient bigot but seriously,well Nomura and Square Enix ever learn their lesson?


This is what happens when they pile up aaaall of their projects,let alone one of which being THEIR MOST ANTICIPATED GAME BEFORE IT WAS EVEN ANNOUNCED BY THEM,to one single director?


I know I'm really repeating myself here especially with my last thread and all but all this ends up creating is a product with so much content being cut out from or not meeting expectations due to the development hell it resulted from


Some people like to say "Poor Nomura,they pile so many projects on him he's working so hard for us fans",I may have some respect for the man but I won't sympathize with his directorial ethos anymore


He of all people knows that he'd love to focus and work more on his own series A.K.A Kingdom Hearts.You might not think so him choosing to direct 358\2 Days,Re:Coded,DDD,Chi and now 3 have severely affected what we now know as Final Fantasy XV(formerly known as Versus XIII).I don't claim to know exactly what goes behind the scenes by any means but from my observation of how he works and how he deals with public perception(something Square is so bad at controlling).I've come to one conclusion



Tetsuya Nomura lacks both transparency and commitment towards both the consumer and the deadlines


For example when it comes to transparency,let's look at both KH3 and FFXV


With FFXV,ever since the game's old state as Versus XIII all the way up to 2014 we heard close to absolutely nothing of how development is progressing aside from 3 trailers with long periods of silence between each and everyone of them.But once he got replaced we got the Active Time Reports which was updating the game's development's state almost on a monthly basis.


Say what you will about how XV turned out but at least the new director tried his best to be as transparent as possible with what he's allowed to share


Nomura on the other hand say little to nothing.With KH3 we heard jackshit until E3 2015 when we finally,FINALLY had a proper full trailer for the game that isn't a short prototype footage shown to the press then later leaked to the internet and after that 2016 came with a drought of KH3 news(I don't mean trailers,just anything) beyond how 2.8 is totally important and how 0.2 leads to the beginning of KH3(Yay It's MGS5  Ground Zeroes all over again).


But you know what?I would've been fine with the lack of news...............if they didn't announce their stuff so freakin early


With how Square announces their games HALF A DECADE before their arrival,Nomura has little to no reason to worry as he's not commited to a deadline he'd be forced to deliver the game in so he'd just do whatever he wants with his given budget and put whatever other projects that belongs to franchises he didn't conceive to be put on the backburner and Square Enix is just totally fine with it as it aligns perfectly with how their marketing division handle things despite them legitimately not knowing what to do with the guy who,among other people like Motomu Toriyama,slowly but surely ran their reputation to the ground with Nomura in particular known to the public outside of the Square fandom as "The guy whose games never come out.



It makes me wonder why they let him be in charge of their most anticipated game with the VII remake.Eventually the same thing will happen before even episode 1 come out.


The game will suffer from development hell,directors will be swapped in and out coupled with staff leaving the company due to layoffs or them just quitting,then the game come out so late that the hype for it just died after the revelation of how much was left out of the game and the radical changes they'll implement to the point it's barely recognized as FFVII anymore



People have very varied degrees of patience and no matter how long they wait,eventually the patience will run so thin that a lot of people would just give up on Square Enix yet again and that bad reputation will cause them to lose a firetruckton of sales and profit in the long term



Enough is Enough Nomura and Square Enix,if you guys don't think you can deliver a product at a specified time.STOP ANNOUNCING THEM SO EARLY





And now that I painted the red target on me,I'm ready for the lambastation
