*dives right in*
You guys have a bad influence on me.
I didn't think of it before, but now I'm sad we don't have a scene where they're crammed together in the Gummiship. Considering how this game tried to up the humor you'd think this would have been done.Before drowing in the sea of replies, here's my nit to pick: how did the other Guardians who weren't SDG arrive at the Graveyard?
I guess this is more of a general "How do Riku, Mickey, Lea and Kairi travel, do they abuse Dark Corridors even if they were hinted to be a big no-no?" but for real, Aqua and possibly Ventus don't even have the armor anymore.
I think they should've just added some throwaway lines when you first travel to KG, since it's already there as a mechanic (Sora Donald and Goofy say stuff they don't say ever again during the first attempt) to show everyone was there with them.
Mostly because I like the idea of the Gummiship being packed with people squeezed together in a cartoonish fashion.
I like to think they just noticed the new game engine.By the way, remember when Riku and Mickey state that the Realm of Darkness looked different at the beginning of the game?
Yeah, wonder what that was all about. Part of me is inclined to speculate it's foreshadowing for something and we'll see even crazier stuff regarding the RoD in the future... the other part of me remembers Anti-Aqua.
Yeah, that was pretty weird. My first thought was that this just means the Realm of Darkness is a bit chaotic in nature so changes its layout occasionally.
It's all a little infuriating honestly. To build up something only to toss it in the dumpster.I get Vanitas showing up when Ven was, but Xemnas could've totally accompanied him, and in fact he should have.
It's so weird that the Norts discover the joys of working together only at the Graveyard, I always hoped that with Master Xehanort at the helm they would've placed more stress on the importance of bonds.
Xemnas had all the reasons to go where Aqua and Ven were, his obession with Castle Oblivion has been stressed out for years, and now we know without Guardian there wasn't any fear of a Terra revival.
You can feel that they just wanted to be done with that part. I mean, as if the absence of a Castle Oblivion dungeon and Land of Departure disappearing from the world map wasn't enough.
Oh, but there was "so much to cover."
Yes. There was just so much. That's why nothing happens until the last 4 hours.
The story should have been filled to the brim with plot. Not constantly put it off while saying "I'll get to it." like a teenager avoiding their school assignment until the last possible minute then complain they weren't given enough time. I understand that the game had productions troubles and I sympathize, but it's clear the main story and original worlds were given a lower priority in favor of bringing in newcomers.
Veteran world showing the rookies how it's done!I swear, Olympus is a case of "too good", it raises your expectations by adjusting you to a level you won't find in the other worlds.
(WHO. HEALS. ON. TRIANGLE?)
^But scratch all of that, the simplest fix for it would've been to make "Maximus racing" and actual minigame that you can revisit for rewards, like Frozen slider, Verum Rex and pretty much all the other stuff. I don't think any of it goes against game design.
It's been a while since I watched the movie, but wasn't the original scene the Stabbington brothers faking being knocked out by her? Maybe that's what they were going for.Except Gothel defeats two Reapers with a stick (maybe it's a relative of that one stick Roxas uses?)
Belle could defeat the entire Organization with just her elbow jab.Btw: Belle's elbow >>>>>> Rapunzel's magic hair.
I might have more to reply to but that's it for now. lol
