Finished it— overall, I thought the ending was good, but I lost interest in the story a few times throughout the journey. The twists were okay, but what redeemed the ending to me was the unsatisfactory feeling the good guys get from catching the bad guys.
Character interactions were really strong, as expected for a character-driven story. Game mechanics are not bad. Didn’t care for Naegi, but really found myself loving Asahina and Oogami. :,3 Ah, friendship. Ishimaru, Fujisaki, and Owada are an adorable trio too. I would have liked for Owada to be Fujisaki’s aniki! I also feel like I would’ve really liked to see Kirigiri and Maizono together more. The potential between Maizono and Kuwata is so high since he wanted to become a vocalist, and she’s an established talent!
One spoiler below cut:
Spoilers, obviously. :) Here’s a summary of the game for those who just wanna know. I put in a little analysis but not much. It’s mostly just an “on-the-surface” look at the game.
Couple of thoughts:
I NEVER FOUND OUT WHY RIKU’S HAIR GOT CUT I’M SO CONFUSED…
Missed one letter during the credit dive fffffffff it was the “k” that appeared right after it started!
I got really excited to see Sora and Riku in their original KH outfits when diving for New Game +, but then it appears that they still move through the game in the DDD outfits. Am sad.
I liked the ending. I’m really happy to have played a Riku game. I liked the secret ending too. Good stuff.
Also, the ending is really… really… gah. At one point I was like, “Dang, they gonna kiss?” Hmmm. Not complaining. It’s just. Hmm. Hmmmm.
Can’t wait for the next game, which will come out in two years? :,3 I hope Donald and Goofy get to do lots of cool stuff!
The flame-y keyblade at the end looked really cool, haha.
I think this is the first time I’m replaying a game again— I think it’s because I was so close to getting a perfect game. I had gotten all of Riku’s treasures, for instance, and when I hit up the last boss (finally) he was level 55 so the last fights were cake at that point. I’m playing on Proud mode now to collect the trophy, and the game goes by really quick now that I’ve already seen all the cutscenes.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get the Link trophy haha that would be intense!
This time I’m dedicated to making really high rank Dream Eaters!!! Plus, completing more of their skill boards! I had gotten the complete skill boards for more than half of them last time.
So it just turns out you were dreaming the whole thing?
Not exactly! ;3
i couldnt have called that twist in a million years i was really… surprised
SAME I WAS ACTUALLY A MIX OF ANGRY YET PLEASED wow this game wow…
Also when Riku grabbed Sora’s hand I was like, “Yep— hand holding between boys. Good stuff.” Then Riku chasing Sora’s nightmares away holy cow.
OMFG I LOVE INCEPTION
Okay finished the episode. Bart from terrible future is so quiet and sad waaahhhh and also his eyes appear to be green or green blue instead of gold AND HE SAYS TIME TO GET IN CHARACTER so then my heart skipped and I was like IS THIS THAD IS THIS REALLY BART?
GREEN EYES? I KNOW HIS EYES AREN’T GREEN BUT HIS COLOR SCHEME IS GREEN, SO… ANYWAY!
GETTING IN CHARACTER?
Anyway, well, if it is or isn’t… This is an interesting take on Bart, because it justifies that darker edge to him that he always had in Impulse due to other reasons (being hated on by Wally, no family, hard time fitting in, finding the world boring, unable to adapt to real time because of subjective time, missing Jenni, and so on). I am dying over his sad, fleeting tender expressions it’s really moe and also so heart-breaking for me.
Yes Bart keep making that face Tim will love it he is drawn to wounded people because he’s wounded too.
Bart, god dammit.
God dammit I want to hug you I love you so much
(ps has anyone got a DL link to the Justice League: World Without Grownups comic? I need one of the panels in there and i can’t find it x A x)
ALL THE HUGGING WAAAAAAHHHHHH HE IS JUST A LONELY KID GUYS PLEASE GIVE HIM MAX
Yes good more.
Also I like that he has the side parted, brown hair and does not look like a Wally clone at all PHEW somehow improving over the comics wtf. Also more uguuus. I get that they couldn’t animate all his giant magnificent hair.
i’m hoping for bromance moments between these two like wally/dick in the first season
M-MY NEGLECTED OTP BECAUSE DC SIDELINED BART ALL THESE YEARS
