    If anyone cares the full OST is out for 2.8 on YT atm I believe, or at least a large majority of it.

    I'm gonna wait until I get the game personally.

    Oh damn really? I'll definitely hold out on 2.8 until that if it's the case. I've wanted 1.5 and 2.5 on PS4 for a while.

    Eh, that's kinda excessive. I haven't watched the video yet, but I hope there's something new.

    So I finished 0.2 a couple of days ago, and I took some time to gather my thoughts on it. I still have to go through and beat it on the harder difficulties, and deal with the Zodiac Mirror but I figure it's fine like this.
    Game for the most part is definitely gorgeous. Lighting is incredible, which says something considering the entirety of the game is in the Realm of Darkness outside of the Final Boss fight. The models still need a SLIGHT bit of work, still look a bit plastic but it's a far cry from what they were on initial viewings.

    The atmosphere though is dripping with tension while also throwing a bunch of callbacks to KH1, which makes sense as the game basically takes place during KH1. The sense of fear the Darkside and the Heartless initially drew upon you, will come back with a vengeance even though you're a Level 50+ Aqua. But there's so much tension, and you can feel the misery. Probably a good thing Nomura didn't go forward with making this story into a full game, idk if anyone could deal with that depression for that long.

    The effects are definitely solid. The new Magic effects come in handy. Magic feels useful without feeling overpowered. You can't go through the game without using each magic spell, and that's good. The downside is that you can't Magic Combo as you could in KH2, but that's mostly just a nitpick. Magic also looks gorgeous, especially the Tier 4 Spells.

    I enjoy how they integrated the Command System essentially, into KH2's System. Having Command Styles be OPTIONAL, separate inputs is a godsend. No more having a Command Style coming at the wrong time. On top of that, instead of Elemental Command Styles, we just get Tier 4 Spells finally and man, they wreck, ESPECIALLY Thundaja. Spellweaver isn't as busted as it used to be in its Finish Command, but to make up for it, it gets a big AOE effect at the end which is very helpful on bosses. The system meshes well.

    Movement however is stilted, though it may be attributed to the fact that they gave Aqua the BBS movement which wasn't particularly smooth. Hopefully Sora gets his typical movement options back, which will make things run smoother. Also, Aqua's Dodge Roll is nerfed which is fine as to make up for it, she has an extremely quick run speed.

    Music is composed beautifully once again, especially the Demon Tide music, both phases.

    The Enemies, at least the few we got, are solid. We have Elemental Types back, and unlike the ones in KH1, you are much more inclined to use the weaknesses quickly, otherwise they can potentially overwhelm you. The Water Cores especially are just infuriating. The issue though is that the weaknesses aren't really intuitive. Fire loses to Blizzaga naturally, and if you watch certain anime, you can at least see Earth Cores lose to Thundaga, but the Water Cores losing to Firaga is obviously not something expected. Neoshadows are as evasive and annoying as usual. But the stars of the show are the Demon Bosses by far. We expected something crazy when we saw the first trailer for KH3, and they delivered. I'll never look at Shadows the same way again. The Demon Tower is aggressive and vicious, but the Demon Tide is just something else. You can just tell the level of ambition that KH3 is going to shoot for, and all the ideas that Nomura never got to use until now due to the technology being lacking.

    As for story, not a ton learned, but not needed. At least we know how the King obtained the KKD (it was behind that fucking Destiny Islands door the entire time...at least someone figured out that it's a push door). Otherwise, just the setup for KH3. King and Riku off to save Aqua for real this time on a Bro Trip, Kairi off with Lea to learn under Merlin (thankfully remembered that she wouldn't be particularly happy with that considering their last interaction was him kidnapping her) and SDG off to the Olympus Colisseum to finish Sora's training since he's Level 1...again... But for those annoyed by the lack of Disney relevance, the fact that Yen Sid outright sent Sora to Hercules is a good sign.

    But I absolutely enjoyed my time. A lot of effort was put into this and it does its job in satiating the appetite but leaving you wanting more.

    Yeah, you can definitely tell how 0.2 is a jumping off point gameplay wise, while also bringing in a bunch of other things. The amount of style we'll have available to eradicate foes will jump to even greater heights now. Also more Wave of Darkness, I'll never get enough of that music piece.

    EDIT: Updated to the trailer with Eng Subs. Xemnas pointing out the obvious.

    that toy story world looks amazing, next up should be tangled and big hero 6; im thinking some worlds might just be mini-games or cameos and not full fledged worlds

    So...fun fact. Both the Toy Story and Big Hero 6 Worlds in KH3 are actually canon to their respective series.

    Like Big Hero 6, fine, that's cool.

    Toy Story though? There's about 5000 different solutions the toys could've had if they've been capable of taking on fucking Heartless.

    Yeah. KH3 is vapor ware as far as I’m considered. I don’t believe it’s a thing until I’m at home playing it.

    They're still working on KH3?

    Thought they canceled it years ago.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    You out of your mind if you think Frozen is going to be left out. Big Hero Six is in and that was the movie that came after. You better be ready to listen to all the songs, have Anna and/or Elisa as a party members and Olaf with the Moose as a summon.

    See, if you have this state of mind, why even give a shit? Just ignore the damn series. You dont' need the creators to end it for you. If I grow to dislike a direction a franchise is going...I just...stop caring.

    I keep forgetting this is getting made since it got started in development at least 6+ years ago now. Sure it will be solid, but man there are worlds about movies that seem to have came out AFTER it started development. That is development hell.

    Definitely, but at the same time its development hell is more due to FFXV's Development Hell. KH3 got meme status because of another even bigger meme.
