Take your pick.

Re: what order should we play kingdom hearts 2.8 in?

All new things order, for sure (for me, anyway). I'm not going to risk getting spoiled by putting 0.2 and Back Cover off. LOL.

I'm also going to be breaking my HD Remixes order by doing 0.2 first (as I usually always watched the "movies" to start everything off), but it'll be worth it.

And it's not like 0.2's that long, anyway, so I can quickly get to Back Cover once I've finished that wonderful experience.

And then DDD's last for me. Even if I didn't strongly dislike that game these days, the new things would most definitely beat it out for me and make it so I couldn't not get to that one last:)

Gah! I'm so excited for 0.2 and Back Cover. December can't get here fast enough, I tell you what.

I know for sure I'm going for the new stuff first, mainly 0.2. Back Cover is gonna top off my emotional torture via the hands of these precious children.

Re: what order should we play kingdom hearts 2.8 in?

Probably new things order. I used to go for the unpopular order but I've changed my mind on that because i dont want to be behind everyone else for weeks and risk spoiling myself.

Re: what order should we play kingdom hearts 2.8 in?

As much as I loved my 1.5 and 2.5 marathon back in 2014 where I went through all the remixes in the order they were meant to be played/watched, this time I don't think I have the patience to hold out on 0.2 and X while I go through a game I've already played. I'll probably watch Back Cover, then play 0.2 and then end with a well paced Dream Drop Distance playthrough.

New Things Order, just because I'm assuming .2 and Back Cover won't take long and then I can focus all my attention on enjoying 3D (which is the only reason I'm buying the release anyway).

Re: what order should we play kingdom hearts 2.8 in?

As much as I want to play 3D again, I have to play the new stuff first. 0.2 is irresistible, and I'll get to the rest of the content faster than if I played 3D first.

Aqua.


Also, for people who have never played KH at all, the best pick would probably be DDD first.

I'll most likely end up playing DDD, then watching back cover, followed by playing 0.2 What I anticipate the most though is 0.2, followed by back cover, and lastly DDD. I already beat DDD on 3DS back in 2012 so for me it's all about experiencing the new content and seeing what it has to offer especially seeing as how the newer content sets the stage for KH3 which is the thing I've been anticipating the most for the longest now.

0.2, Back Cover, and then DDD when I feel like it. I did a pretty thorough run of it already on DS this year, so I'm in no hurry to get back to it. Can't wait to get my hands on 0.2!

LOL I'll be playing the unpopular one, but alternating between DDD, 0.2, DDD, finish BC in a sitting, DDD, 0.2, DDD (if I haven't finished 0.2), DDD.

Probably 2.8, DDD, and then possibly backcover. As much as I want to play DDD I wouldn't be able to enjoy myself playing it first if I felt like I had to rush through it to get to the new sparkly 2.8. Plus I don't care much for backcover/chi I'll either watch it last or not at all.

For me it's ALL THE NEW THINGS order. I feel no need to first play something I've already have again over the NEW THINGS!!!

I haven't played 3D. I will probably get the game online so it will be some time after release until it reaches me - all this assuming I have a PS4 by then.

So.....

1) Back Cover on YouTube
2) 0.2 (since it's completely new and short)
3) 3D

Back Cover first, thought it would suck but after watching Chi's ending i am very curious to see how it plays out. Will kick shit if the master of masters pulls his hood down and it's just plain old Xehanort living all the way back then.
