    Common Elements and Themes in KH and Final Fantasy III

    During my Kingdom Hearts Retrospective, I've repeatedly mentioned that I see a great number of connections between Kingdom Hearts and one Final Fantasy game in particular: the original Final Fantasy III, released on the Famicom in 1990 (and not to be confused with FFVI, which was released in...

    Film ► How Many Original Disney Sources Have You Read/Seen?

    As you know, most of the Disney classic animated films are based on an older work. But how many of those older versions have you actually read or seen? To help you get started, here's a list of all the sources I'm aware of. Note that I'm not including any one of the animated shorts that...

    FrustratedJacob "Reverse/Rebirth"

    Jacob and Joey are back at last! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATXjMlpOTa0 I know the original playthroughs for KH1 and Sora's Story were popular here at KHI, so I thought I'd post the new video because of their overlong hiatus.

    Identifying Two Voice Actors - Need a good ear!

    I was looking over my KH2 Retrospective for editing the other day and I realized that I neglected to credit two KH2 voice actors that appeared very early on the game. You probably remember the Struggle Tournament in Digital Twilight Town on Day 4, yes? In the build-up to that tournament, you...

    Length and Number of Worlds

    There have been a few reviews out for 0.2 A Fragmentary Passage lately saying the game runs 3-4 hours. Now, previously interviews have suggested that 0.2 would be about the length of a whole KH3 world. I don't personally know if I believe that, but if that is the case, that means worlds in KH3...

    Extracted Data?

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone had any access to data extracted from the game? I'm specifically looking for clean images of the book from the level-select screen.

    Mission Crown List?

    Does anyone know if there's a list out there, somewhere in the internet, listing the exact number of Mission Crowns returned by each Mission during your first victory in each mission? Everyone seems perfectly happy saying "It's from 2-9 and bosses are worth more" but I'm looking for specifics.

    Kingdom Hearts: Coronation of Light (Fan Game Design/Fic)

    Purpose This is not going to be your typical fanfic - rather, it's going to be a series of atypically formatted fan-game-design document-style posts covering a hypothetical Kingdom Hearts game about Kairi's training with a Keyblade, set sometime between DDD and KH3. My effort is to copy the...

    Trophy Completion Statistics

    Last June, Th Key of Destiny posted a thread about Trophy Completion rates in the 1.5HD collection. I felt the data he pointed out was interesting, so made a note to gather similar data once 2.5HD had been out for a similar amount of time (8 and a half months). I'm two weeks or so early but...

    Kingdom Hearts Retrospective

    I got into Kingdom Hearts fairly late. I never even had a Sony console until I got a PS2 near or after the launch of the PS3, so 2006 or 2007. This has always left me in a bit of an odd position with the series: none of the teenaged nostalgia, but enough of the joy of playing the newer games...

    Final Fantasy Marathon Journals - Playing them all, from start to finish...

    For the past five or six years now, my friend Kyle and I have been attempting an insurmountable challenge. Having already toppled a few other game franchises in what we called "The Marathon," he challenged me that we should play the Final Fantasy games. "All of them?" I said. "All of them,"...

    Merlin's Doors

    I've never checked and now I'm curious: what happens if you don't open Merlin's front door (the one with the Fire symbol)? Can you still get in the back door via Leon's training cave? If the answer is yes, do you get the cutscene with Kairi and Merlin immediately on entering? Is the door...

    Which Plot Twists did you Guess?

    Obviously this topic is spoiler city! I'm curious which major plot twists from the series players managed to guess ahead of time! "Ahead of time" is going to be subjective, so stick to your best judgment. I'm going to make a checklist of sorts, including all the possibilities I feel were...

    Help me understand Berserk Charge

    I'm trying to fight some Mushroom XIII and am having trouble understanding the Berserk Charge ability. Some sites have recommended equipping the Fatal Crest and Berserk Charge. Does this doubling up actually do anything? I'm Shield, so I'm still a few levels from getting the ability and...

    Learn any new tricks?

    Between all the re-releases, new content, and Trophies, and KH2's new difficulty mode, I'm sure I'm not the only one finding new ways to play these games. I'm wondering: have any of you discovered any new things in your most recent playthroughs that you never noticed before? Any new strategies...
