Re: The Sora/Donald/Goofy Fanclub!
He only really used the Darkness towards the end when he came closer to accepting it though, and even then it was more to show that Darkness-using Terra was rightous while Light-using Eraqus was bat-shit crazy.
Plus, there's MX's influence, and that's one area where I'll always defend Terra. As much as I loathe MX and what he did to Terra and Ven, he was a different kind of villain, at least in Terra's story, then the one that fans are used to, and I also think his relationship with Terra was more realistic than the standard hero-villain conflict. I don't believe that most people want to be straight-up evil; most villains believe, to some extent, that they're in the right and everyone else is wrong. So in order to get Terra to listen to him, MX targeted him when he was emotionally vulnerable, stroked his ego, twisted the truth about other people, etc, rather than use the not-as-subtle Maleficent Technique of "I AM EEEEEEVILLLL, AND YOU SHALL JOIN ME WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT! MUHAHAHAHAHA!" Sure, we
can all see that he's evil, but Terra didn't get to watch the extra cutscenes with Braig or Ven or Eraqus. In that sense, I sympathized with Terra all the way.
That's why I have SUCH a score to settle with Aqua. Terra IS a good guy! He's done nothing wrong! Even his Darkness came from Maleficent and MX, not really himself
I guess that's part of why I love him so much.
It's not just her though. Master Eraqus was saying it, Vanitas was saying it, Maleficent was saying it, Braig was saying it...pretty much everybody except Ven. But again, I didn't see it. Sure, Terra's very naive, but power-hungry???
That's what it looked like though. And I'm not known to be big on what the writers are 'aiming' at if they can't base it any.
I also wondered if this was the first time that the three of them had ever had a serious conflict, and that's why they overreacted the way they did. They acted like that one little disagreement was going to destroy their friendship completely. Guys, there's this neat little thing that just got invented called "an apology." Try it some time, and move on.
I think, overall, I loved TAV as individual characters, but the trio...meh...the trio could've been better written.
Ho yes. We all know how well it goes when the fans have their ways x.x drop dead, Nomura.
If it's any comfort to you, Coded seems like a VERY pro-SDG game. I think they'll always be the main, playable trio, though I wouldn't say no to an additional Riku-Mickey and Kairi scenario.
Also, speaking of Coded, has anyone seen the cover of the Ultimania?
D'awwww, they're such cute, awesome friends!
