#1971100 RUMOR: PlayStation Official Magazine UK claims Kingdom Hearts III is "spl...

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 20 January 2018 - 04:30 PM

That's strange though, they also mention Toy Story and the returning Drive Forms... Also, KH3 and DDD don't really look like the same game lol

Tell that to IGN lol. I think PS Magazine is as confused as they are.

Like those I attached? It's not as if Sora's look is terrible in the cutscene but if you can have the better quality one, it would be a shame to settle for something mediocre, not even mentioning that awkward model of Young Xehanort.


I really, really hope you're right and those are different stages. Looking back at 0.2, there was this weird fluctuation throughout the game, even from one camera angle to the next, which bothered me quite a bit, especially because they sometimes overdid the lighting compared to the TGS demo for example. It's weird how a development stage prior to the release can look better than the final product.

I fear that the same could happen to KH3 where they improve something and in the next step make it worse again.

Yes, the pictures you attached are exactly what I'm referring to. Sora doesn't look bad in the cutscene at all, but...that in-game model from the D23 looks much better. I understand what you're saying about 0.2 as well, but I'm pretty sure this was developped in a short period of time (and the cutscenes still looked amazing) while KH3 has been in development for 4-5 years. Plus, I believe the cutscene quality for KH3 is gonna aim towards that of Back Cover which looked better than 0.2 in my opinion.

No clue, maybe it's not the model but lighting and the fine details which bother me. It's rather... irritating when the gameplay quality surpasses cutscene quality, especially if they're pre-rendered videos which apparently use the same model. Shouldn't the quality be the same then? Instead, the quality fluctuates a lot and that's a bit worrying when they only use one model per character. Though that's only an opinion.

If you look at some of the gameplay and compare it to the cutscenes, it just looks rather different. But it doesn t have to be the model itself I guess? You're right that it doesn't make much sense to have two, especially when the difference isn't really that noticable anymore.

I agree. I've noticed that the models seem to look a little better in the gameplay segments of certain KH3 trailers. Especially in the orchestra trailer. Perhaps the cutscenes and the gameplay were "recorded" at different stages of development or maybe the cutscenes aren't finished yet and they still need to touch upon certain elements.

Well, it was pretty obvious that the cutscene were videos since Aqua's accessories weren't carried over to the cutscenes (meaning the cutscenes weren't in real time, although they were rendered within the engine or at least that's how I interpreted it). Also, OMG Luxu has a face!

#1967189 Question Regarding Final Fantasy XV

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 27 November 2017 - 06:32 PM

Little advice for FFXV. Take your time with the game if you really want to enjoy its story. If you rush your experience, you probably won't like it. Sadly, with FFXV you need to look for story elements to have a good understanding of the plot. That means that, you should:


-Watch the Brotherhood anime and the Kingsglaive movie

-Listen to the radio in the game when you have the chance to (the radio gives A LOT of context to the story and reveals quite a lot of interesting story elements)

-Listen to your party's banter for interesting story content from time to time

-Read the various documents you come across (The Cosmogony books and some documents in Chapter 13 and Chapter 14)

-Play the DLC (they say it's bonus content, but it feels more like missing content to be honest)


It's a lot, but sadly, FFXV is a fragmented experience so if you want the complete XV experience you need to put the pieces together. It's still enjoyable by itself, but not as much imo. Enjoy the game :)

#1967080 Will Kingdom Hearts 3 have mirage arena?

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 25 November 2017 - 03:02 PM

I would love for KH3 to have some kind of multiplayer mode. Preferably with a character roster...some kind of Dissidia mode, but that would probably take some time to develop. Maybe they can add it as DLC like they did with XV.

#1966809 How long will you sit at the main menu?

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 20 November 2017 - 10:20 AM

I have to cry, jump, scream, smile, cry again, blow my nose, dry my tears and breathe it in. Then I’ll be able to start the game, so I guess around 10 to 20 minutes.

#1958974 KH3 being released in 2018? Pffft...AS IF

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 12 August 2017 - 05:41 PM

But he recently said there would be less worlds in KH3 than other titles, but they would be bigger and better. So, I don't think there will be 20 worlds. As for 2.8's delay, they pretty much confirmed that the game would've been ready in time but they delayed it because of XV. (XV was delayed because it wasn't ready, not because they didn't want to compete with Persona 5)

#1958812 Which Kingdom Hearts Character turning evil would shock you the most?

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 11 August 2017 - 05:26 PM

I was going to say Jiminy, but that Kairi line got me laughing too hard x') "This was the only free role" lol. Poor Kairi...

This. makes. so. much. sense. 


If Nomura knew about what he was going to do since BBS...then KH3 is gonna be real epic!

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 21 July 2017 - 03:25 PM

Remember the part in the BbS Final Mix secret ending where it showed Kairi in front of the Twilight Town mansion? Maybe that's how Twilight Town being the tutorial world will happen. I hope that's how it'll be 'cause I REALLY want to play as Kairi!

That would be SOOOO COOOL, but Kairi's supposed to be training in Radiant Garden though. Maybe since the room she's in is timeless, she's already good at Keyblade wielding when the game starts?

Considering there might be less worlds than in KH2, I'm kinda bummed we'll only visit the worlds once. But I guess it's better for storytelling so once again, quantity over quality.

#1955478 How can I be hyped for KH3 after THIS?

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 18 July 2017 - 09:12 PM

Concerning the plot, I think it is great that the story for each world seems to line up with the overall story like in KH1. I don't know why you were more interested in the story for each world before, but I'm pretty sure they'll be better this time around. As for the game having less worlds, they are massive! Like have you seen Olympus. I'm pretty sure it's like 3 times the size of a KH1 world. There'll be much more to explore and to do so each Disney world will be a lot more enjoyable. It's a quality over quantity type of thing, which makes me happy personally. Just wait til the game comes out, you'll see then.

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 18 July 2017 - 11:12 AM

I expected that. The worlds are so massive! If they're all as big as Olympus then I wouldn't mind having like...7 disney worlds. This game will live up to it's potential! Btw, FF7 has more cutscenes than KH3!!! How big is that game?! lol

#1954755 KHIII Release Date Apology Thread

Posted by PrinceNoctis on 16 July 2017 - 12:07 AM

In the past years, one of the biggest cause of arguments in the community has been the release date of Kingdom Hearts III. I have been insulted more than once because of my opinions on the game's release and I've also unintentionally hurt people's feelings when it came to that particular subject. Last month, when the Orchestra Trailer was released, many people apologized for insulting others concerning Roxas' possible return in KH3 and more. I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread where everyone could patch things up and get along anew as we patiently await Kingdom Hearts' big return to home consoles!


Let me go first: To everyone I've hurt by being rude or unsympathetic, I am deeply sorry.
