Bought Kingdom Hearts yesterday. OK, picked up my copy and the Strategy Guide. Then played through the first little bit before crashing.

WOW. They’ve outdone themselves again. Square takes more advantage of the Hardware with each game..

And Kingdom Hearts appears to be what i was looking for in FFX – Which is still unfinished due to lack of interest.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    What exactly is the point of the game, other than the character cameos? I’m not being sarcastic, just interested. Thankfully I miss the wave of media idiocy that attends every new game release, but in this instance I’d like to know.

    plot starts with you having to rescue/find some friends. But that looks like it will also become a quest to find and rescue the King Mickey, traveling with Donald and Goofy, and helping other characters.

    It looks like more than Cameos, but full levels/worlds – stopping Oogie Boogie in Haloween Town, Defeating Hades in Greece…good stuff. Yeah, there are a lot of cameos (Cloud and Sephiroth are both bosses, and big ones at that), but there are some characters that look intergral to the story line.

    Oh, and the chibi-Wakka and chibi-Tidus are getting good reviews *grin*. I’ll probably finish with them tonight, though.

    So far, the only things I like about it are Sora’s friend Riku (who’s kinda creepy, and (as is almost always the case in games such as this) is having his insecurities brought to the fore and completely manipulated, poor guy) and hot, grown-up Squall, er, Leon. The Cloud-Vincent is kinda cute, too. And apparently Sephy wasn’t in the Japanese release.

    I *hate* Goofy.

    I’m just waiting until Ben picks up my copy of Tekken 4. That’s more my speed. I tried Brave Fencer Musashi. I got about 4 hours into it and quit. I just don’t do console rpg’s.

    Loved FFX. Watching anyway. I’ve seen Ben play 4, 7, 8, 9, and 10 now. I liked 10 the best, I think. Partly because of the graphics, partly because of Auron. Partly because the final boss is a balrog who pulls an Utena move. And the ending is so sad.
