Oh good I thought red had just blatantly spoiled a great surprise for you.

Thought that was a real jerk move!

I liked it! Because I was picturing a pleasant surprise for somebody doing a blind run.

I dont remember if I knew back when I originally played it in what... 2005?... about that. Though I think trophies spoil that surprise in this version anyhow.

Got Axel down to the final health bar but I was kind of low on cards even with reloads, my mega ether was cancelled which kind of fucked me.

Question: does anyone use the enemy cards? They are really cool, but are so damn expensive. Maybe I need to take more CP levels instead of HP?

Also a quote from me today: "I really like Axel and it's making me even more excited for the rest of KH"

I 100% remember my boss deck being centered on Jafar (enemy can't break your attack) + Ars Arcanum, which you know is a very easily breakable sleight otherwise. Think Jafar allowed for 20 attacks, so, 6 full AAs, that's probably what I did... or stuck with higher level ones and Sonic Blade (Rave?), but I def remember going hard with the Arcanums.

Think there were 1 or 2 other good ones but that's the one I remember most clearly...

I feel like Sora is much more fleshed out character in this game than he was in KH1. KH1 was just "Riku, Kairi!" and just floating around. I guess you could say the same here about "Namine!" but if more feels like he's actually sticking to a set of beliefs, specifically honoring your word.

Alright, Sora-side complete. Sora is such an optimist, I love it.

I'm wondering if the other Org XIII people that it looks like I killed show up again. Obv Axel is still around. Thank god.

Marluxia went all weird anime just like Ansem did in KH1 where it really doesn't explain his shape changes.

I'm really afraid I won't see Namine again though. Other than, you know, in Riku-side.

it makes it go by much, much faster.

Some of the decks have very clear strategies, others will make you think on it a little bit.

This topic inspired me to watch some cutscenes from the CoM remake and uhh they're actually pretty good? I liked CoM on the GBA and I haven't played it since it came out so should I play the remake?

Feels a little weird to play after just finishing KH3 but maybe it'll make the experience richer. What do you guys think?

Re:CoM takes a little bit to get used to playing cards in a 3D space at first, but after you get used to it it ends up being better than GBA CoM due to general quality of life changes and buffing bosses up. I'd say try it out.

Awwww yeahhh

This is where Oogie becomes real critical. Was Halloweentown in the first set of world cards? Get him asap and then Jafar (I don't even remember how enemy/boss cards work in Reverse/Rebirth since Riku's deck was preset... maybe you have access to all of them at all times?)

I still think the card gameplay is handled better in 2D space overall though, even with the small improvements Re made. Plus the nature of the worlds just feels like it makes more sense in an isometric game.

According to one of the KH wikis, Riku has one enemy card native to whatever world he's in, and access to all boss cards he's obtained.

GBA game is a lot more focused on your cards and using the right ones and countering and such. Whereas the 3D version is more focused on the movement and positioning and such. They're mostly just different experiences and I definitely don't remember the bosses being super easy on GBA, not that that is much of a factor anyway.

Cause positioning almost didn't matter in GBA, it was really hard and rare to actually dodge attacks yourself. So you had to use the cards a little more wisely.

You'd think so, but most boss battles can actually be completed while almost entirely ignoring positioning.

It's hard to say about difficulty because I found Re:com to be pretty pushover-y as well.

In fact all the fancy boss moves felt like it actually hindered their effectiveness because it gave me that much time to find a zero card and just stop them dead in their tracks. I had to let bosses hit me so I could see the cool animations.

I haven't played the gba version in a long ass time so I can't really compare them, but since you can't actually play it on Proud mode it probably wouldn't be harder anyway even if you get hit a little more.

It's more like the GBA game was an A+ game in production values. The remake feels low budget in comparison since it reuses so many assets and switches to ugly ass text boxes for the disney worlds with really bare environments.

It doesn't feel good to play as a fully modeled KH1 Sora and be so limited in how he interacts with the world. Also normal enemy encounters are weird because you have all these guys standing around but they can't attack you like in KH1 because they're also playing with the cards one at a time like you. It just comes down to the compactness of the GBA screen and stuff fitting the game a lot more.

The remake is really good though otherwise. Still fucking upset we couldn't get english lip-sync for the cutscenes though what the hell
