We kind of used the Hype Topic as a discussion topic after the game came out. So I thought it would be fun to post this here.

The only caveat that we had in the other topic was don't talk end game. Disappointing comments could make it less exciting for others. Excited comments could make it over hyped for others. Also, use discretion too many spoiler bars aren't a bad thing.

Started late but just got to Twilight Town, gameplay is smooth.

I'm playing Proud and it's pretty easy so far - despite taking a lot of damage. Also, I feel like I get my special moves every three seconds.

Just finished Arendelle and made it to PotC. I'm Level 30 playing on Proud. My Gummi Ship is only level 18 so I might go around and do some gummi ship battles as I really haven't done much there.

I didn't realize I was getting post 500.

Don't get to play much on weekends, but I'll be starting up Monstropolis tomorrow. I've heard mixed opinions on it, and I haven't actually seen the whole movie so who knows how I'll feel about it.

From doing just about every mission/battle available so far, my gummi ship is level 73 lol.

Beat the game earlier today. Really an incredible game, like, there's almost TOO much. So much going on in each world, so many little games, and I literally never even touched the Classic Kingdom stuff. The journey to platinum is going to be an adventure.

However, speaking of platinum...

I curse whoever's idea it was to do Lucky Symbols. It's so obscene, and it was bad enough when it was static environments, then big natural environments, then it's (Disney world spoiler) the whole friggin Caribbean of finding these needles in haystacks.

(Edit #1: seriously makes me so mad I gotta edit this with additional thoughts on that DIsney world JUST DON'T MAKE THE CAMERA WORK UNDERWATER!!! But of course it does which means the entire ocean is in play. Just brutal.)

I managed to get 55/90 on my initial runthrough but that was with constant scanning and second-guessing, literal jumping at shadows... was seeing lucky symbols when I close my eyes and almost on the lookout for when I go outside, lol. I've avoided using any guides so far and it seems inevitable that I'll need to so will probably just give in on finding the rest... the only place where KH2's really small environments are missed, lol.

Also I definitely messed up/missed out on the gummi stuff, I was always going point A to point B to the point that I don't even know how to tell the difference between a gummi battle flying around that I already completed and one I hadn't done yet... well, that's all post-game cleanup time anyways.

Edit #2: also the KH3 final dungeon reminded me of Xenosaga Episode III which I still fondly miss to this day, damn, really could've used that HD Trilogy remaster...

I beat the game tonight! Spoiler bar time lol. MASSIVE spoilers incoming!

So I'm pretty content with the ending, I'm really happy (almost) everyone got their happy ending and are back to themselves. The little party at the end at Destiny Islands made me smile like an idiot lol, but tear up at the same time. It was bittersweet since they were missing the main character and his girlfriend. But then the others see them on the tree! And it's like yay happy ending after all?! But then he disappears and I'm like oh shit, he didn't make it!! But then she got fuzzy too I think? I do know that it showed them again from the same angle but the image was flipped for some reason?? What was that about?

And then there the epilogue... can't say I'm too surprised at all about Xigbar/Braig/Luxu. There were theories and his mannerisms were super similar. I don't know what's up with all the foretellers and Luxu but I'm sure it ties back to the Master of Masters. Everyone says he's prolly the next big bad. There's also that little bit where Chirithy shows up to Ventus. He seemed excited to see him like he recognized Chirithy but idk about that. Is that the same one from the Final World I assume, cause I totally called it lol. Um, the chess match at the end was interesting with the 7 black pieces vs only 1 white. I'm sure people will analyze that like crazy. I'll look forward to those.

And finally the secret ending... what the fuck? They're inside the game? That was my thought but then I listened to Derrick from GX and he assumed it was either real world Shibuya or maybe the World Ends with You Shibuya. The latter would be cool. But then also that Yozora or whatever guy is there so idk what the fuck is going on lol. But I'm excited about the future!

I'm going to avoid spoilers in case one day I decide to say fuck it and get reinvested, but just wondering how the general reception has been? Can't help but notice how buzz seemed to cool down hard after the release. I chalked it up to people bunkering down with the game, but now that people are making their post game impressions known I'm seeing a few (not only) middling and frustrated responses out there.

I was definitely frustrated with the story, but the gameplay is still pretty top notch even if it is too easy.

Here's my general opinion of the ending without spoiling any details: It was basically like the ending of Parks and Rec, everything worked out for everyone and there were no twists. It was just very boring and safe, you could say it was too... simple and clean.

The game is still a solid 7/10 though. It probably didn't help that my expectations were too high after waiting 13 years.

I personally kept my expectations medium low, and it went okay. It's fun as hell to play, which makes up for some of my story quibbles.

MAJOR SPOILERS
I have to chuckle at the melodrama when Xehanort by all rights kills Kairi, only for everyone to be immediately assured that she's okay, mainly off of Xion's say so. What, did Kairi get banished to the Shadow Realm or something?

Did Kairi even serve a purpose at any point?

I suppose that's what she's known for, but jeez it almost seems like things would have gone better if she just stayed home. She never even used her keyblade that she supposedly spent time training with?

I did find it funny that the game knew Kairi and Lea were both useless so they quickly replace them with Roxas and Xion. Who are just the most kickass allies you could possibly have. Saix goes from being a decent threat to a complete joke.

It's hilarious to sit back and just watch Roxas utterly demolish Saix with little difficulty. Even if his health gets low, Xion will heal him.

In the Carribean. I'm pretty amazed by how cool Port Royal is in this. By itself it's easily larger than the entire world in KH2. I know it's nothing special compared to an open-world game, but it really helps makes it feel like you've entered a separate "world" as opposed to the previous games.

The banana mini game is fucking stupid.

Also you can't say "fuck it" to the lucky emblems because you need a certain number of them to unlock the secret ending movie. Like 50 or 60 or something, depends on your difficulty.

I'm loving the Lucky Mickey Symbols i think its a great little search and find quest, however I enjoy the ones that are in the environment opposed to the ones which are just an imprint on a wall, those just feel like cop-outs. Hidden Mickeys should be Hidden.

That's the thing, if it was just imprints it'd be fine because you know what to expect, but the sizes range from large natural landscapes to, like, a few inches in diameter.

With a treasure chest hunt you expect a certain size and they're on the ground. There's some restriction built in... there's none for the emblems so it becomes a real 360 degree search. Makes me miss trinity symbols from the original game too.

I'll need to use a guide to get ultimate weapon so I'll probably give up the authentic emblem search too, just too much time wasted searching...

To me its basically:

Are you fan of the series that has been on this wild ride from the beginning and are up to date on stuff? The game is godly.

Otherwise the game is still fucking awesome but won't have nearly as much impact story wise and depending on how into the series you are you most likely will be fucking lost and possibly frustrated with the story.

Even as a fan from the start there are still some minor issues, but if they ever added DLC / KH2 esque Final Mix to this to fix them and add certain things then it'd easily bump from 9/10 to 10/10.

I think it goes SOME SPOILERS AHEAD

-Bring back Critical to fix difficulty issue. Make it harder and also heavily lower Attraction proc chance if not outright remove them excluding required scenarios. Proud was easy. Could bring back new game+ from 0.2 for it as well

-Maybe throw in master challenges from 0.2 to possibly get some cosmetic stuff or other goodies

-Add tournament cups back for Olympus. How could they NOT do this? EVERYONE wants it and you can't have it for Colosseum and Hades for KH1 and KH2 and then not have it in fucking Olympus. Seriously the final area in that world seems designed for it but is currently host to a battle gate and those aren't even challenging

-More secret bosses and areas. Current one isn't all that much to talk about although that may be related to the current difficulty issue. Was hoping for stuff on par with KH2 FM secret / extra bosses and they have PLENTY to work with for this. They could also make a Cavern of Remembrance style area to host some of em.

-More secret heartless and bring back Mushroom Crew

-For the love of God get the party members to shut up from certain situations. "ARE YOU READY? HEEEERE GOES!", Buzz going "HA-HA" every time you use rocket special attack, other stuff like ingredients being nearby etc.
