I wasn't sure how I was gonna feel about the Resident Evil 2 Remake all said and done but I'm most of the way through my first run of it and while it does lack in some areas and I miss the fixed camera angle aspect, its a great damn game all around. Mr. X is an amazing enemy.
How many times has X given it to ya? I love watching streams of this game, they're very random with certain things so stuff is unique. I have beaten Claire A, B and Leon A so far. Knowing how to path your way through the game is a lot of challenging fun.

I can agree with that. It's a gorgeous game with a lot of good ideas, but none of those ideas seem to mesh at all. KH1 and KH2 felt more like everyone was on the same page and working towards the same goal with the same mission. Sure 1 is rough around the edges now, but I'd only really add a single mechanic from KH3 to that game: the flowmatic traversal stuff. Outside of that KH1 is a ton better.
I would love to know how many mechanics they made for KH3 that didn't make it into the game.

hell I think I would love to know how many mechanics are in the game, every world seems to add like 3-4 new mechanics that don't really show up again. So many little systems that feel like they were made by different people lol.

"Oh crap, what do you MEAN we have to include Winnie the Pooh in every single KH game?! We've just finished actually making the damn game after all these years! UUUUUUUH, QUICK, MAKE IT 3 LEVELS OF PLAYING PUZZLE BOBBLE"

My issue with all the mechanics is the combat. So much of that stuff is totally useless or incredibly situational. I've never really used the flowmatic combat stuff simply because it's too annoying to get going. I've used the focus shoot thing, but only sparingly and only at the start of a fight. There's just too many moving parts in the base gameplay loop at this point.

Plus everything is just corridors, which is fine, KH1 and 2 was like that, but it's just more noticeable in this game due to the lack of platforming. KH1 just needed to clean up that one thing, which KH2 did. KH3 just needed to do what KH2 did, only better.

Not gonna lie, I almost never used the Link feature, only once to have them be in the Game Records and almost never used magic until the very end when I had the strongest versions & even then, I just used Thundaga & sometimes any version of Cure.

Hell, only ONE battle, the secret boss, did I actually resort to using items.

Shotlock can he helpful, but I didn't really use it a lot as well.

I will say I'm glad they helped make each keyblade feel more unique & not just "here's the newest strongest one", you actually need to think a little bit.......well until you get Ultima Weapon.

I'm not that far into KH3, but I've heard...things...about the Frozen level.
It's....fine? It's not a bad level by any means, but out of all the levels in the game, I felt the least involved with the "plot" & its characters. Plus aside from seeing the ice palace, there's not really much that makes it feel like it's Frozen, but more "generic ice/snow level".

I'm playing it now and frankly it's just whatever. It feels like they needed a frozen level and added a quick frozen level.

I will just say this.

You can jump on snowballs and roll them. I tried attacking them and melting them with fire and lots of other things but didn't realize you were supposed to stand and roll :/ I figured you could push them to move them.

That little thing was the only thing that was annoying to me.

I figured that out pretty quick, it's just that the level itself feels kinda ehh. For the more recent movies it feels like we're playing through the movie itself instead of through a world based on the movie. Frozen-world has been the peak of that so far. We're just kinda there, along for the ride.

It felt the most "let's show off how well the game looks & how close we can have it seem to the original film". Tangled had that same feeling, but at least you actually teamed up with both its main characters & I felt involved with helping them out and fighting the villain.

EXACTLY. So many moments were just "hey, it's the exact same scene from the film, isn't that nuts the PS4 looks so similar to the movie!?" & kinda why I couldn't help but feel like Sora was a bit fanfic-y with the fact he just felt inserted into the plot.

I was kinda bummed by the BH6 level with how short it felt & it's just one big area that you really only explore for the treasure chests & that's it. Again, not bad, just....fine.

Toy Story was easily my favorite level with Monster Inc might be my 2nd favorite.

Toy Story was the perfect KH level and Monsters Inc was also really good.

They made a mistake leading with Mt. Olympus.
I can see why they did, it's a good opening. That said, they totally wasted the titans like that. Plus I still miss the Colosseum from KH1. Sure there wasn't much of a story there, but it was a thing you could do on little time and have some fun with.

Actually, on the topic of those two movies.

Ya know what I wish Disney, or rather Pixar, did instead of "live-action" remakes of their older animated movies? Remake an older CGI film but make it look like their current CGI. Go the route of Spyro & Crash of mainly just updating the graphical style while tweaking a few things.

Imagine Toy Story 1, but it looked like Toy Story 3 or 4. You don't have to change the story, the original still exists to see what the filmed looked like originally, & you can be all "it's remastered!"

Story wise it makes sense, I just find it empty. The Titans also disappointed. I think the Colosseum is the best part of 1.

Thanks to nostalgia goggles and not having watched toy story 1 against since toy story 3... it already looks like toy story 3/4 to me in my memories :3

Yeah, it's great storywise. It's just a bit of a waste. They took 3 end game tier boss characters and made them bosses 1 and 2.

so I just watched the sword art episode
did Sinon really say she still considers the guy that tried to drug and rape/kill her, a guy who aided in killing multiple people, a friend and that she was going to visit him o.O

or am I mistaking who she was talking about even though they said he was getting the help he needed and was tied to the death gun stuff?

D.C. Douglas did a fanfuckingtastic job as Kira. He doesn't sound weird or crazy, but there's a subtle wrongness in the way he talks that unsettles you.

When he's monologuing to Shigechi he sounds appropriately cold, calm and robotic, as Kira should. I have to get to last nights ep, but I'm liking him so far. Kira doesn't get emotional till a scene further down the line that I cannot wait to see dubbed.

Who cares about Kirito, the Queen referencing villain of Jim Jam Part 4 when we have this to look forward to:

While helping Lee train, Tenten remembers when she was younger and how she really wanted to become like the legendary Tsunade.

Did anyone else think that Alice was gonna fall off a cliff or something when she was going to the entrance of that cave? The sudden change in ground color threw me off.

"oh no no no no no no" Just based on the delivery you can tell that DC Douglas is having some fun and enjoying himself.

I really don't care about Naruto or it's filler considering that I haven't even bothered to rewatch any of it since the last time I've seen it.
