Up next, thoughts on the story for KH:coded? What could be improved, what should be changed? Is it fine as it is? Thoughts? Any ideas of how to improve it?

This story I know pretty much nothing about, so I have nothing to contribute.

People hate on Coded for being a skippable side story, but I can forgive it for that. Why? Because it was originally released on a phone model only available in Japan. If we must have games on every system then I would prefer it if they were side stories instead of unmissable puzzle pieces.

But as for the story itself, Data-Kairi should have been involved somehow. Data-Roxas exists despite not being involved in KH1 or CoM because he and Sora are two halves of a whole and one can't exist without the other, but Data-Namine can exist without a Kairi counterpart?

Nothing that I can think of, actually. I thought it was a fun diversion of a game, even if its story was mostly inconsequential.

I'd do a story where Ven wakes up in Sora's subconscious. He has to defend it from Vanitas.

Or a Kairi centered story where her training gets interrupted by Lady Tremaine and Larxene.

My big issues was the focus on Sora and the rehash of KH1's structure. So scrapping Sora and retooling the worlds with an easier to grasp scenario would help.

I don't need Coded to tie into the Xehanort Saga. But if you still wanted it to....that's my pitch.

There was a story?

Alright, alright, fine. I wouldn't do the whole Data-Sora losing his memories at the end. & jumping ahead a bit it would be the same Data-Sora in Limit Cut instead of a new one Cid made. Just say Cid upgraded him.

Plus I wouldn't have had the heroes go out of their way to rescue Maleficent & Pete. They brought on themselves, let 'em die.

If there's one thing I absolutely hate about Coded's story it's Data-Sora losing his memories. The story emphasizes that he's a fully sentient being with a heart of his own but it's okay to mind wipe him because the journal is being reset? I know this franchise is no stranger to thematic inconsistency, but when it's in the same game it's just confusing.

But then we wouldn't have anyone say "Looks like Team Rocket is blasting off again!"

Wow, I'm so old

I would add Riku and Kairi as party members for most of the game, add 100 Acre Wood (so we would have book characters interacting with book characters from a book within the book, along with it being a light and fluffy location), not wipe data-Sora's memory, replace Castle Oblivion with Twilight Town, and give the cast a happy ending. The game was intended first and foremost to be fun (and make money, of course), and I think the story should have reflected that better instead of becoming jarringly dark in the last world especially.

I never knew Re:Coded was hated so much. I just thought it was overlooked far too often. One thing I heard is that in Japan, back when Re:Coded was first introduced, Birth by Sleep Final Mix was released 3 days later, so it got completely overshadowed.
