One of the first pictures we got to see of KH2 when I was about 15-16 was the one where Roxas was facing Axel in the flaming circle but you couldn't see Roxas' face. Then there was another famous piece of Axel with his arms stretched out and spinning his chakrams.

My closest friend at the time said that the guy with the keyblade (Roxas) was Sora, and I told him he was crazy and that Sora had a totally different hairstyle. Then my friend said the guy with the red hair is Riku. I got really mad that day. When the game came out a year later, he said: "I was close".

lol
I remember those pics. Do you remember the one of the twilight thorn? That came out very early. Everyone was saying its the light version of Darkside from KH1.

I actually don't.
Most likely because I'm eleven now and I really don't remember anything other than getting upset because I didn't have enough money to get it.
I guess I'll take a guess to what happened.
Heaps of hype,
People made theories,
More Hype,
And some more Hype,
Did I mention Hype?

Yes this is exactly what happened except most people back then believe some of the rumors as well even me included yes that was a bad idea, but these rumors were at least believable.

Yeah it was it's also why you have many jaded members such as me we expected something like God of war 3 or 2 and got what we feel is something completely different. This is just an example though.

Oh god. Most of my pre KH2 days were spent watching the secret endings and writting intense theories.

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight.
I wasn't a very avid Internet user until my Freshman year of high school (August 2006, few months after KHII), so I didn't use any forums, watch any secret videos (saw ASAS/DD years after KHII was out), or even know about YouTube (I beat KHII in Proud mode just to see the secret ending, thought it was the only way). Most videos I watched were on IGN, as I assumed it was the only place I could find stuff on it. I wasn't a part of any of the theories, though now I wish I was; sounded fun. I was practically in the dark the whole time.

To me, pre-KHII was just constantly checking IGN to see if anything new was up, or the odd magazine a friend had. When they posted the intro to KHII on IGN in Japanese... ho-ly shite. I think I watched the intro twice a day every day for MONTHS until it came out. Nostalgia for Passion/Sanctuary doesn't take me back to playing KHII, but to waiting for KHII and my expectations for that game. Most of those expectations were met, but hey, nothing's ever as good as you imagine, right?

It boggles my mind thinking, in 7th/8th grade, I didn't think to go on the internet and read up on these forum posts of hype, secret videos, and speculation. I could dig up a lot of those forum posts now. If I had seen those back when I was 14, I think my head would have exploded.

I certainly remember those days. I wasn't a big internet user at the time though... I got the game and guide the day it came out and looked in the back of the guide in Pizza Hut. I had been playing KH since the very first one came out so it was a long ass wait for KH2. I was 8 when it came out, and oh man, I was so excited. Five years later and I've grown out of KH a bit. I don't think it's the best game ever anymore. I've had five copies of KH2. Still got my first copy of KH1 though. I guess you could say those were simpler times for the average Kingdom Hearts fan. I remember one issue of GameInformer had like a ten page story on KH2. I cut the pages out from the magazine and stapled them together lol. I did play CoM back then too. I saw it at GameStop back in December '04 and conned my Dad into getting it. Can't say I was a big fan of it then though lol. The day I learned what KH2FM+ was, however, was the day I stumbled upon this glorious site. I didn't join till a year later. I remember you guys had a news story from EGM or some magazine saying KH2FM+ was coming to America in Fall 2007... Those were the days, man.

Errrmmm...Is it possible for the people who run this forum to delete posts? Because someone, I don't know their name, posted some things that went something like this: Back when there weren't...,...,people who had no faith in God, yet mocked people for their beliefs,..., and ...
(The "..." represents the unimportant parts of the post)
I replied by quoting them and stated that they were being rather rude and

I was looking at old posts I made a long time ago I remembered that before I joined KH Insider I looked at old KH2 threads and such. I remembered a thread about the first hate club ever created...just wished I knew what it was called

Bumping because I want to share my story.

I suppose it all went underway following closely with Chain of Memories' inception in Japan. I lurked on kingdomhearts2.net (now Khinsider). I joined in December 2005. They would discuss their theories regarding "BHK" (Blonde Haired Kid) "GEU" (Glowing Eyed Unknown) and DWU (Dual Wielding Unknown) As time passed...they speculated that BHK was Sora's "shell" ("shell" was derived from what the "Enigmatic Man", who we now know as Xemnas) stated in regards to both himself and Sora. They were right :p Release date topics for KH2 were in mass abundance...which grew highly annoying after a bit. For the longest, they thought Diz was "Ansem's" "shell" (Nobody) but apparently...they were wrong :p They made this mistake due to Diz's mask resembling Ansem's dark skin and orange eyes.

I vividly remember checking Kingdom Hearts Ultimania every 5 seconds for updates. Pete, Mors, and the others kept the site constantly updated with plethora's of new information (this was back when KingdomHearts2.net (Khinsider) literally RIPPED OFF all of their information from them. Now it seems to be the other way around) :/

It's a shame that Ansem's Report became lame and went down the drain...

I also remember when Kingdom Hearts Ultimania was probably the BEST kh site in terms of news and dicsussion,now its merely a shadow of its former glory.

Khinsider that used to eb a haven of virus, spam and STEALING other peoples info is now one of the best KH sites currently >_> oh how the times have changes.

I remember kh-2.net and Paul's obsession with TOMOGIRL. Back then I used to post as dreadlife and dreed and this kid used to defend t-girl as if he was her sugar daddy/escort.

And don't get me with Dk gerbil and his nasty attitude on Sora's Domain. I wonder what hes up to these days.

Anyone else remember this LYING ass troll called CEDELES aka Namine4life who used to spread rumors on khinsider, kh-2.net and khultimania? *yawns*

I miss the awesome XIII points chart.

And being more of a lurker on AR. Thus, I don't think I really got myself that involved in that community too much.



But I digress, today's KH community are just as cool. V_V


Gerbil constantly horribly insulting everyone who crossed his path flaunting his flawless theories that were in reality horribly wrong.

Or Gerbil insulting anyone who didn't like his fansite. He was very entertaining...until he went poof on Gfaqs.


Now that I think of it..

One thing I miss of KHU's time, getting that letter from S-E...

I can't believe the OP didn't mention:

That blonde haired kid is DEFINITELY Tidus. Who else could it be?!?!?!

Also, the teaser trailer with Simple & Clean Orchestrated music. Original Hollow Bastion castle gameplay. All those Heartless. I watched that trailer so many times I still have it memorized scene for scene.
