My friend is letting me borrow is PS2
so I can play Kingdom Hearts
. I am tired after all these years missing out. I am always late and miss out on everything and I hate having to tune out when everyone but me in my posse is talking about Nobodies, Axel, Roxas, and whatever. I want to be involved.
But how badly do I want it? I tried this once before. The game's pacing sucks. The unskippable
cutscene was painful to watch for a third time and so is having to go through this whole beginning part. I mean really, how cheesy and sad sounding can you get? Ominous Latin chanting while you stand on the stained glass images of our useless Disney Princesses? Dark little critters trying to kill you even though they look kind of adorable? A giant monster thing that's a pain to beat even though it isn't hard to fight? And of course the voiceless text that tries to sound all deep in ominous.
And to think after all this long boring stuff is done, I'll have to go through more long and boring stuff (fetch quests, training fights with that Wakka guy form F Inal Fantasy VIII
, and cutscenes) that are all mandatory before Sora is subsequently thrust into the Disney world and the real
game begins? Am I supposed to be used to painfully long cutscenes by now becuase I haven't played a game with any (Except arguably Tales of Symphonia
but that was fun so I let it slide.). Perhaps I need to be a Square Enix
fanboy in order to appreciate the dullness. Well sucks to be you (and me) Squenix, I've ever played a Final Fantasy game in my life, it's what happens when you're born in 1992 and your first console is a friggin Nintendo64 and your first game is Banjo-Kazooie
(Awesome game, perhaps I should go back and play that instead of this...).
So here I am once again dark room with no rhyme, reason, or even context. I have to choose my destiny or something, which means how I'll be playing the game. Decisions decisions, do I go Tank, Fighter, or Wizard? I pick magic becuase I like ducking behind stuff and firing spells rather than getting into the grit of the action. Which means I sacrifice the power becuase sacrificing the shield is stupid. Why would a Squishy Wizard
give up defense? I mean you could be a Magic Knight but you wouldn't last and being a Glass Cannon
