>Square decides to add characters from their manga magazinewho would you include?
>>422640875He was fine with the darkness in II, though. Even the Nobody thing happened in DDD proper.
>>422641115What did they publish besides FMA? I'm likely to stick with that but it'd still be good to know. Just imagine Ed and Winry helping out with a shop for the build system/synthesis.
>>422641661You can check the wiki pagehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gangan_Comics
I swear on me life MoM is after the philosopher's stone
>>422641115Do they own Pandora Hearts? If yes then that one
>>422641857It needs to happen, bros
>>422642843Wouldn't they have to tone down a lot of things to appease the mouse?

>>422642892I mean, maybe if we just don't go crazy with the new IPs, they won't care as much?
>>422643451>Didn't see boobsso close
Anybody got that image of all the trailers KH3 had
Namine canonically has breasts
>>422645084Here's to hoping KH4 takes it easy. It at least has the benefit of not being something people were waiting and building huge expectations for.
>>422645929ChristEven one half of this list is more trailers than most games get
>>422645929>28 trailersYeah i'd prefer if get like 3-4 total. Some people are even saying it's got dev trouble just because we aren't getting a million trailers.
>>422646137It's not an exaggeration when people say they showed almost the entire game.
They really went buck wild in 2018. It's kinda funny how restrained a game like FF16 seems in comparison with its marketing.
>>422646630I think Square was still reeling from FFXV and were desperate to make their OTHER massively-hyped flagship franchise main title announced at the same time a success
>>422647050Can't be that major if he's just now hinting at it five months later. Delay? We don't even have a date. A world got cut? All we have is Quadratum. A VA death? They'll get recasted.
>>422647050Stop posting this. It's fake gossip
>>422647252People are guessing that it could be Nomura getting full permission from Disney for Star Wars/MCU.>>422647360Literally said by someone who was at the concert https://twitter.com/aibo_ac7/status/1637343344786575364?t=Pig7TOCEMg9-nbPX2W9TYA&s=19
So, news at E3?
>>422648428who is he
>>422647050More likely something positive rather than negative. Guessing it has something to do with rights over a world he might want to include
>>422649045Yes, they later added that Nomura was joking around with Yoko about discussing the incident backstage. Its just him being cryptic as usual.
>>422649045>More likely something positive rather than negativeImagine the seethe of barry if that incident is Verum rex getting greenlighted
>>422649045It'd be interesting if it was like a much closer/trusted working relationship with Disney.
>>422647050>>422647252>>422649045So the only news we got is that there will be news.
2023... I am forgotten.
>>422650610My immediate thought was it had something to do with Bob Iger taking over the company again because he's been making a lot of changes/undoing Chapek's mess. The announcement of Iger's return happened in late November though so it couldn't be that unless it was known internally before then or Nomura got the month wrong?https://www.gamedeveloper.com/console/disney-says-its-future-video-game-efforts-lie-in-licensing-not-publishing
Kingdom Hearts is cancelled
>>422647050>octoberCloud Strife VA outed as cheater in October SE had a data breach with FF14 in October
Alright, I've changed my mind. Frozen level isn't that bad. The Ice castle is great.
>>422652252But what happened in September-October 2022 at Disney because it might've taken a month for the news to reach Square.
>>422647483>From the KH concert, Nomura's "There was an event that influenced KH after last year's KH event" is supplemented.>Shimomura: "What?! Well, it's okay now, isn't it?" Nomura: "You don't know?" Turning to Shimomura, "I'll talk behind the scenes."sounds like gossip over 10 seconds of speech
>>422652460Nomura said it was something he'd need 30 minutes to talk about but he only had 5 minutes to tall so had to refrain from saying it
I take it back, I'd rather have trailer spam than this cryptic Nomura crap.
>>422652701he did not say that. you're mixing shit up and adding details where they don't belong. just like gossip.
>>422647483>>422652460>Rumor has it that a new work like Disney's Super Smash Bros. It's just a rumor. Also, at Square Enix's company briefing, Mr. Yasue Yasue is working on an action game for AAA, which I can't say yet, so I have high expectations.Yeah, the gossip is gonna be bullcrap
>>422652857Don't expect anything until FFXVI is out. They're not gonna shoot themselves in the foot distracting from their biggest release this year until it's out now.
>>422653204I feel like we're not going to get any substantial reveals until FF7 Rebirth is out.
>>422653394That's more unlikely unless you actually expect KH4 to come out in 2025 or later.
>>422653493NTA but I unironically believe it will.
>>4226534932025 seems reasonable desu. I'd like it to be earlier but I think Square will prioritize FF.
>>422653570That's fair but I'm a bit more optimistic with KH4 and DQ coming out in 2024
>>422653671I feel they're more likely to leave 2024 for DQ12 and KH4 for 2025 but yeah. Would be nice if both get next year.
>>422652958Again, someone who was actually at the concert. Stop making yourself look stupid.https://twitter.com/Genki_JPN/status/1637356330880221184?t=QQjVKPK70gcUw0NqtPwdjA&s=19
Its over, the red october incident killed the franchise and KH4 is cancelled
KHbros just keep getting BTFO.
>>422654297You can't prove that
>>422655031The October incident.
>>422655350Typical gossip, /khg/ will never fall for it.
October 2022, Disney declares the KH NFT project
>>422655580Every notable member of the /khg/ Community has concluded that the October incident is real and has changed Kingdom Hearts forever.
>>422647252>all we have is quadratumYou're stupid.
>>422653021>disney's smash brosWould be sick.
Lost master arc will be KH's Dark Nights Metal
What level are you supposed to be when you fight the data org in remind? I'm on critical with glass canon build. Last time I tried fighting them I was lvl 58. Anons told me that stats actually matter in 3 so I decided to go do some other things before fighting them again. Now I'm lvl 70. High enough?
4-5 years seems to be the general actual cycle of main Square Enix titles from actual production to "Gold".4.5 years was the cycle for the latest Dragon Quest (with an additional year for international languages and PC port)FF16 apparently began earnest development in late 2016 and was supposedly done last year with about a years delays due to Covid.This even fits KH3 game went gold in early Oct of 2018, started development in 2014 and lost a year due to the engine switch.Assuming you count from 2020 but lost a year due to Covid, 2024/5 is the right time frame.The issue you'll have is the actual date of release since as was shown with KH3 since Disney didn't want the game competing with big release on the holiday (COD I think) in the western markets, they asked Sqaure to delay release to Jan since the English voicing couldn't be finished till just before December.
>>422659006Yes, about 70 is right. The scaling was calculated to make Sora's stats equal to somewhere in the upper 60s, so you need to be 70+ to see any benefit to leveling up against them
>>422659006They were desinged to be able to be defeated at lv1
>>422659879Lvl 1 was designed for superior gamers.
>>422659879Let me guess, you beat them all in ten minutes on your first try while you were in a coma with an off brand rock band controller? Also it was running on your smart fridge and you were a quadruple amputee? And you were getting your dick sucked and your balls stomped on at the same time?
>>422660249No. I used a ps4 controller
>>422660165Inferior. You have to be stupid to do it. Nothing about beating them at lvl 1 is fun. And games are about fun, so if that never crossed your mind you are dumb.
DQ12 only showed a logo and seems that Horii and the director doesn't know what to do with the battle system.
I gave Kairi 50 cents to buy a gumball.
>>422660687my kh discord warned me about this. your a groomer
Guys I gave the last of my munny to Kairi, but Roxas needs munny for his ice cream! If he goes cold turkey he's going to die. His body needs it now. NEEDS it. Axel and Xion refuse to buy him any more because they realised he never once paid in the 350+ times they had ice cream together. They are pissed. Why doesn't he buy his own ice cream? He claims he doesn't have any munny. You're not going to let him die are you?
Sex with Kairi
https://twitter.com/aibo_ac7/status/1637333700156469250"KH Concert Venue Flash ReportMr. Nomura and Mr. Hazama appeared at the end of the concert.Mr. Nomura appeared with his venue pass hanging in the air because he is often stopped by attendants.He said that after last year's KH event, there was an incident that affected KH.He was not planning to come until just before the event, but he came because Sora (Mr. Irino) was going to be at the event.Miyu-san stood up and bowed.Mr. Nomura ordered Mr. Shimomura on stage to "make a song for Missing Link as soon as possible" and left.Additional report on the KH concertWhen Mr. Nomura came on stage, Mr. Shimomura squatted down on stage and said, "Come on in, talk for about 30 minutes! It was so cute!In reality, he was told to finish in 5 minutes because there was no time.Mr. Ishimoto was also there and was introduced.From the KH concert, Mr. Nomura added, "After last year's KH event, there was an event that affected KH.Mr. Shimomura said, "What? What, what kind of thing?" Mr. Shimomura: "That's all right now, isn't it?" The reaction. Mr. Nomura: "You don't know?" Mr. Nomura looked uncomfortable commenting, "Hmmm..." Turning to Mr. Shimomura, "I'll tell you behind your back."By his facial expressions and reactions, it seems that something great happened regarding KH, but he seems to be okay with it now?KH concert repo, the one I remembered.Mr. Nomura is often stopped by the staff. Mr. Shimomura told him, "(pointing to Mr. Nomura's attire), you are dressed..." (Mr. Nomura is dressed in his usual casual attire.)Mr. Shimomura then commented, "Oh, it's like, 'Please don't come in if you're a fan."
>>422663763thats not good
the orchestra crewhttps://twitter.com/sem_sep/status/1637414110345457664
>>422663763>Shimomura squatted down on stage and said, "Come on in, talk for about 30 minutes! It was so cute! In reality, he was told to finish in 5 minutes because there was no time.This contradicts what was reported before.
Someone's desperate for any negative news about a game with no news.
Nomura was disheveld and dressed like a slob as he rushed onto the stage. He yelled at Shimomura to finish the songs for Missing link. He pointed at the voice actor for Sora in the audience and told them to get back to work. He rambled on about an incident for 5 minutes before the security guards dragged him off stage. As he was forced to leave he yelled they will meet in private.Shimomura was disturbed after this
>>422664957Sounds mostly right. Just about what I was told by a friend who attended.
>>422663763Seems like KH4 is in troubled waters.
>>422663763Bros... Is KH4 going to be cancelled?
>>422665541Apparently there was a huge incident Nomura had in October.
I can't believe Bob Iger personally called Nomura and asked him to cancel KH4
>>422652460This statement is honestly nothing."Something happened last year (after a KH event) that influenced KH"Like, that could be literally fucking anything>>422653920Maybe you should actually source your statements when you make them>>422663763Boy I sure love running headfirst into theorycrafting over vague statements run through Google Translate
Nomura had 30 minutes, but only found 5.
>>422666976technically it was deepl
Can't believe Nomura revealed KH4 and KH5 are gonna be released on the same day
Sounds like Nomura was smacked down by SE about the Verum Rex Versus XIII stuff.
Nomura is facing allegations.
If concert goers are to believed, Nomura vowed to fly to across and assassinate all the fujos of the world himself. The phrase "bathing in the blood of these stinky, decedent women" was used
holy shit the big incident that affected KH flew over my house
Now that the dust has settled, how do we feel about KH4 being cancelled?
>>422669940SE can't do shit for Verum rex.If Disney want it, they will do it
In other words it was a literal nothingburger that retarded youtubers are going to blow out of proportion which will cause retarded normalfags to further spread misinfo on social media, just like every other time. Oh bother.
>>422671102The problem Nomura has is that Disney has no reason to care about Versus XIII, and might even take him putting it in Kingdom Hearts as diluting the brand. Sounds like SE called Nomura's bluff.
>>422671510Gotta chase that sweet-sweet ad revenue man
>>422671510>they said WHAT about KH??!>KH news, BIG INCIDENT???>Nomura in shambles, KH in danger???
>>422671510>>422671702It's already begunTURKEY.SEASONED.
I can't believe Disney greenlit a show, a movie, a Disney World ride, a Verum Rex game, AND an Aqua fleshlight immediately after the 20th anniversary event last year
But seriously, if it was something super bad for the franchise, they probably would've announced something by now.
>>422671530Is disney, they could greenlight a Verum Rex if they see it as a way to expand the KH universe.Just look at Star Wars
The incident is why they are changing buildings, I can't say much more or they'll silence me.
Bros... why did nomura commit The october incident?
>>422672354>AND an Aqua fleshlightbad news is it's chink sized so that baka gaijin can't use it
>>422663763Hazama is a FF producer isn't it? The SoP, Theatrhythm and Dissidia producer. Also he put Versus 13 somnus on 3DS Theatrhythm
Why did 'the incident' kill KH bros? It didn't have to be like this.....
>>422663763>Mr. Nomura ordered Mr. Shimomura on stage to "make a song for Missing Link as soon as possible" and left. This is the weirdest part to me, why not just wait until after the concert to give her new job tasks? Feels like this whole thing is some kind of publicity stunt to drum up hype and interest.
>You're laughing. The october big incident affected KH forever and you're laughing
>>422674670>Feels like this whole thing is some kind of publicity stunt to drum up hype and interest.
Hey bros, I heard that Nomura announced that KH was dead and wanted to check in to make sure everyone was doing okay.
I will never forget the incident, it changed me forever
>>422675987i still can't believe it, he made KH go up on stage and then just shoot him dead in the eyes, how could he?
I was at the concert, let me tell you what really happened.>concert in progress>suddenly the nge theme starts playing>nomura comes out naked>pulls a 14 year old out of the crowd>masturbates over them>cum starts raining down over the audience>every man is instantly turned into a woman>every one is instantly pregnant>nine months worth of child development happens in seconds>everyone gives birth at once>the men revert back to being men>the babies instantly grow up into an army of nomuras>the nomura army invade tokyo>take over the capital building>japan now being ran by nomura>renames country verum rex>coming 2024
grim tidings for this contest now that the big incident made the news
>Your efforts were for nothing.
>>422663763> Finally beat Yozora this morning after a month of playing a little each day> Went to the KH concert in the evening and clapped along to Yoko playing Dearly Deloved (swing version) on the pianoPerfect days do exist
>>422678180>KH3 mickey>With Kingdom Key Dmust be because of the incident
The incident has changed the course of KH history
>>422679847Woke- KH4 won't have ANY Disney associationBroke- KH4 has MARVEL
Can’t believe that the incident also affected Verum Rex development, nothing will be the same after the incident.
This has been the worst incident in the entire history of square enix
Is this /dbs/?
>>422680087>also affected Verum Rex development,How could it affect something that doesn't exist?
ahhhhhhh kh female im cummming
>>422674259He's the kingdom hearts executive producer
>>422682318I like this Sora but the saturation is down in this pic. Pls fix.
>>422681363Just like KH4 no longer exists kek.
>>422684198Seething Verum Rexlet. The happening is that Nomura had to remove Yozora and everything Verum Rex related from KH4. We will never see Yozora again, he'll be on an indefinite journey like Seifer.
>>422665541If Forspoken didn't get cancelled then KH4 wouldn't
Bros i dont think i'll ever recover form the 'incident'
Kairi is a big girl
>>422692232Is this the "incident" everyone's talking about?
>>422670739>Holy shizz, didn't know Nomura was cool like that.
The incident broke me......
>>422693238>The toy Gigas Sora was learning to use in 3 were foreshadowing the climatic incident all along
>>422692232>>422693238You know, Kairi being massive makes me think of a certain show... Is this foreshadowing by Nomura?
>>422693892I can't believe Kairi sat on Anon
What would KH4 need to do in order to get everyone to stop making fun of the series?
>>422694665Explain the 'incident'
>>422694665It can't do anything.
>>422694665Have Aqua say the word "penis." Or at the very least have a compelling story.
>>422663763>>Mr. Nomura ordered Mr. Shimomura on stage to "make a song for Missing Link as soon as possible" and left.lmao. nomura is such a wacky guy
>>422663763KH bros........ i cant take another decade delay like KH3
>>422695695Too bad, bitch.
What if they've changed their minds entirely, and ML ends up being a full title instead of gachashit?
>>422695865Why would your tiny pea brain think of this?
Reminder that as a Kingdom Hearts fan with no content for months you are not allowed to theorize about what may be happening.
>>422696056we just got content, we have a whole big incindent to talk about. I say Agrabah is involved
>>422696056The incident has change everything anon
A SECOND NOMURA HAS HIT THE 109 BUILDING
> Play Darkness of the Unknown at Second Breath > Replace the pipe organ with piano Hack frauds. >>422696056New content dropped. Yoko revealed the name of the trailer song. As if anyone cares.
>>422696350>Yoko revealed the name of the trailer son??
>>422696425Sorry I can't remember what it was in full since I was concentrating on the Japanese."Reality" is part of the title. I think it was "Reality is [...]" or something along those lines.
>>422696960REMEMBER GOD DAMN IT ANON, I NEED TO KNOW
>Latest quote from Nomura following his successful bombing of Disney HQ:>Now I have become death, the destroyer of worlds
>>422696960>There is new content>Ok well what is it>Lol idk sorryCome on dude.
>>422696960Wait, she lied when she said it was a reveal. We already knew. Lmao. Reality in the dark.
Nomura got permission to use Star Wars didnt he
WHAT THE FUCK DOES IT SAY NOMURAI CAN ONLY READ THE WORD LOUIE
>>422699307i see a "desuka" so it's probably japanese
>>422669940Or SE said please Nomura do FFXV Remake. And now theres no more Versus bullshit in KH4
>>422681043Raiku sama please kiss my wife
Maybe ”the incident” is that nomura recreated the keyblade war IRL
KH3 could've benefitted from being more meta.Imagine if Sora was made Keyblade master in DDD anyhow. The effects of DDD hadn't sapped him of his strength in one sitting, but slowly over time. Even as Sora's arsenal grows, he continues to get weaker. There's enormous pressure on him to save these people that have been waiting a decade (and also Roxas, can't forget about Roxas) for their time in the sun again, and the sky-high hopes of people like Kairi and the other Disney denizens are making things worse. He unlocked the POW, but he's got a mental block for it, SM2-Style. Sid himself isn't sure what's wrong, so he sends Sora out to the worlds as a sort of healing process(also strengthening).He later gets tasked with overseeing the rest of Axel and Kairi's training since Merlin taught them both all the magic he knows. Kairi sees Sora trying to act the way he usually acts, but corrosion within him is making him more jaded, more exhausted. The organization, realizing this weakness, makes plans to take advantage of that weakness and turn him into a feral shell of his former self (basically COM 2.0). Donald and Goofy do their best to keep Sora anchored, but at times he just flies off the handle or goes into his Rage form. At one point, he even creates a corridor of darkness to chase after one of the Org members. He does some damage but ultimately has to get bailed out. After the incident, everyone sits down to have an actual discussion with Sora's worrying condition. Sora's cynical about Axel's concern and assures him he'll keep Roxas alive. At this, Kairi gives him the impassioned "We're worried because we care about YOU, dumbass" speech. She emphasizes further that while she cares for Namine and the rest, she'd never want their happiness to come at the expense of his own. Axel adds in that he's certain the rest feels the same. Sora thanks them. From that point, Kairi or Axel take over for Sora for one world while he recovers.
>>422645929and people STILL cried anytime they didn't get a new trailer
The future of Kingdom Hearts is so bright
>>422704345Buff Riku was the incident all along??
>>422704080>KH3 could've benefitted from being more meta.I've seen this before
I cant lie any longer, i caused the incident
>>422671702>We all got a job to do...
>>422706281YOU'RE PULLING MY SALAMANDER SQUARE
>>422704080>After the incidentWAIT! the october big incident happened during kh3?!?!
>>422706810On that day, /khg/ received a grim reminder...
>>422706810>14 minutes agoslacking, missed out on clicks
>>422706992Shadow Moses ?
>>422705183>CosmonautThat guy has genuinely awful takes, take anything he says with a grain of salt
Why did Nomura do it bros? Why did he cause the incident
>>422706810>Gamersjoint has 25,000 views despite going on hiatus after hiatus that literally last yearsDude what the hell
Favourite KH song?
>>422710581He also said he was done with Kingdom Hearts content after KH3 was said and done I believe.
>>422710968>OpeningSanctuary>Ending Sanctuary ~after the battle~>Boss themeDismiss>Normal enemy themeRowdy Rumble>World ThemeTwilight Town.
I really just want to hear the KH4 song.
>>422711440SIMPLE AND CLEAN
>>422710968finny fun by ariel's waist
>>422663763It could be anything but if it's positive what are the possibilities? >Disney has removed Nomura's limiter and he's got more freedom with their characters. >KH has access to Star Wars and Marvel now so Nomura can shift the series to have more of those worlds and not just Disney>Kingdom Hearts film or tv show in the works
>>422711440Then buy the vinyl
>>422697963Why would that change the course of the series though.
Honestly it's fucking stupid believing that Nomura would publicly drop some doom and gloom news (without even properly clarifying what it was) at a fan event
>>422712529Takes it from kino to cringe shit
>>422699931I wish the good guys would flash step more. I hate it when the good guys look like retards who can't use the cool powers in cutscenes and villlains can.
>>422712529cause it would mean he's in
>>422712540yeah but it was basically a "something happened and you'll all find out later" thing
>>422712217Am I retarded for preordering this?
>>422712540Yes and the Japanese are notoriously tight lipped about that kind of shit. Nomura shut down mobile phone reception for the 20th anniversary event and he's always been quiet on the Versus XIII drama. If it was negative he wouldn't have alluded to it on stage. It'd come via some solemn announcement in a Square Enix twitter text post. And desu it might not even be something that gets announced, we might only find out what Nomura meant in retrospect when we play KH4 and people will be like "oh so this is what he was referring to back at the concert". Because a part of me thinks if it was that big of a deal, he wouldn't casually brought it up like that to Yoko.
The incident wont stop us KH gods, we never lose
>>422713365>announcement in a Square Enix twitter text postExcept for FFXV, funniest stream ever
>>422712540>doom and gloomLiterally all he said was "something happened"
NOMURAS LIMITS HAVE BEEN CUT
>>422710581He's a decent guy
>>422713727But really though. He seems to be the least terrible out of that whole group.
>>422640926>the director of Kingdom Hearts looks like thisI can see why he would cause an incident
>>422713581It finally happened.
I cant lie any longer KH2 1000 heartless fight sucks
>>422714641next you'll say you don't like pressing triangle
>>422714575Man was cooking long before everyone else
I suppose, but the loyalty of his fanbase is still bizarre and incredibly unique.

my favorite kh3 trailer reaction will always be that random family. they'd never even played kingdom hearts, and were happily pointing out all of the disney characters. then their faces are completely blank once nomura's wild ride starts
remember when Nomura said Kingdom Hearts fans overthink stuff and yet today has proved that even more.
>>422716020he said he purposefully does that cause he likes seeing people theorycrafting, though i very much think he sees that as an innocent "friends talking about stuff" and not as the "autists going ballistic" it is
>>422716020I wonder why...>KH1 secret ending>KH2 secret ending>KH Days secret ending>KH BBS secret ending>KH DDD secret ending>KH3 and Remind secret ending
>>422716073Their faces when Sora screams holy shit
Do you guys have any specific things you do when you replay the KH games? Like for example i always level my drive forms in KH2 in a specific order and at specific locations
>>422714641It's a good setpiece. Actually playing it sucks.
>>422716556Those aren't meant to get you to speculate your batshit fanfic theories, they're meant to get you hyped for the next entry by showing off nonsensical cool shit.
>>422716796Not that I can think of, but I've noticed that I always seem to get high jump during the boat bit in timeless river.

>>422716796I always make sure to do most of my grinding at the Mysterious Tower when I'm feeling masochistic enough to play BBS.
BBSChads, what do we think of Ultimate Mix?
>>422719372What is this & does it fix Aqua's story?
only OG keyblade masters rememberhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oHePebRblo
>>422719575It overhauls the engine to feel more like KH2, rebalancing commands and enemies as well. Also adds optional "data versions" of the various humanoid bosses. It does not touch the story.>picTrying to defend Terra is a wasted effort. People will just keep screaming about Terra's Deep Space until they think they won.
KH3 was an insult to this perfect ending.
>>422720382Then DDD2 (3) is garbage.
>>422720341>SRK returned to the place they tried to escape from>roxas and namine going OOC for a ”happy ending”>heartless and nobodies continue doing their thing like normal>maleficent and pete still at largeIts an perfect ending if you dont think about it for more than a minute
>>422721881>>maleficent and pete still at largewhat're they gonna do?
>>422722003Use heartless to conquer worlds. The reason they couldnt continue their kh1 goal was because the organization was using the heartless, and they had to rerecruit their members
>>422721881>SRK returned to the place they tried to escape fromThey didn't want to leave forever. They wanted to see other words, which they have, and being able to return to a place you can call home is something every adventure cherishes. This doesn't even need explaining.>roxas and namine going OOC for a ”happy ending”It's only OOC in retrospect. Taking KH2 alone, they accepted their places as part of a greater whole. Roxas even has an entire fight dedicated to realizing this. It's only afterwards where we learn that they can actually be their own people.>heartless and nobodies continue doing their thing like normalAs they always have even before Sora's journey began, but they've been drastically crippled to the point where they're nowhere near as big a threat as they used to be.>maleficent and pete still at largeThey haven't done anything substantial after KH2 anyway. The most they've done was try to take over Jiminy's Journal, which wouldn't have happened if KH2 was the end point of the story. The last we see of them is taking on a gigantic Heartless swarm in TWTNW, leaving their fates up in the air.
>>422714774the xemnas skyscraper reaction command was always my favorite because you're rewarded for actually timing it properly instead of just mashing triangle
>>422721881>SRK returned to the place they tried to escape fromYes, there is no place like home. Have you never felt homesick? Also, like 3.>roxas and namine going OOC for a ”happy ending”Like 3.>heartless and nobodies continue doing their thing like normalLike 3.>maleficent and pete still at largeLike 3.COPE.
>>422722694case in point 3 is not an ending
>>422716796For me it's immediately getting rid of the "new" notifications in the journal/pause menu. It just triggers my autism.Haven't thought much about it until now, I wonder if anyone else does the same.
>>422722845>END of the Xehanort saga>3 is not an endingHow low do corprophiles stoop to defend there trash?
>>422722541>It's only OOC in retrospectRoxas went from ”i deserve to live too” to ”im glad to just be a part of sora because i can be with namine” (someone who interacted with him less than five times. Two of them being her saying hi and introducing herself, One of them being her yelling for him to use the keyblade, and last being her saying the legendary ”you shouldnt exist”), because sora defeated him>>422722694>Like 3I never made the argument that 3 should have been the ending
2 was a good ending, best place to end the series. But it was full of bullshit and missed potential. and filler. Most of it was filler. Like, everyone remembers the beginning with roxas, the middle with the battle against the 1000 heartless, the final battle against xemnas, that's what it's famous for. Certainly isn't famous for its boring ass disney worlds.Like imagine if KH2FM was never made. The Org had an entire 30 extra minutes of cutscenes added because they were barely in the game.
>>422723063same here though for the journal i do it in spurts, doing it literally everytime the "New" pops up is too much even for me
>>422723342Sora didn't win. Roxas simply decided to give up, because, at the time, they didn't know that both could exist at once, so if it had to be one of them, it had to be Sora, because he has so much more going on, not just with the strong bonds of friendship he has, but because he, as a Keyblade wielder, has a duty to fulfill that Roxas, without a heart, could not accomplish.
>>422722641>see green flash>press trianglethey're all the same anonymous
>>422723350The Disney worlds had the best story & music in the series. It just falls flat in level design.
>lots of filtered postGee I wonder who it is
Reminder to report and ignore shitposters
I was eavesdropping at the orchestra when Nomura had his private talk. The incident is Riku's japanese VA was arrested in october for drug posession. Square Enix and Disney push for the complete removal of all Rikus from future KH games, including KH4
>>422724459>Announcing a report
>>422724730if that were true it would have been a huge deal since miyano is a big voice actor even outside of kingdom hearts.
>>422723289How does Nomura get away with constantly lying to his fans? The disrespect is unbelievable.
>>422723902>The Disney worlds had the best story & music in the seriesWhy do you just post lies that are easily dismissed like this> just falls flat in level design.I've begun to forgive it for this, not because it was bad but because they clearly didn't care about level design. They wanted to make an action game and decided to put an rpg skin on it. You can tell because the worlds were also empty as fuck with nothing to do in them aside from like one or two minigames after finishing up the story.
Personally I really wasn't a big fan of most of KH3's OST, especially a lot of the Disney battle themes. Everything from KBG onward is great though.
What's she painting?
>>422725613It's great because its all shameless, inferior rehashes of good music from better games.
>>422725857She's painting (You) while you're drawing her.

>>422732449FINALLY!! Just as the Book of Prophecies foretold.
I just think it's fun how Mickey being missing during KH1 is solely because Disney would only allow Nomura to use him for one small scene.
>>422734119It was better that way anyway.
>>422734119It was at a time when they were fiercely protective of his image. Now they don't really give a fuck.
>>422727886Hey at least he didn't milk it for ten minutes. If you wanna see a man desperately abuse hype for money and attention go check out mr Matty plays. That faggot literally makes twenty 10 minute videos about the same vague rumor.
>>422714369Is this an adaption of a scene from another media franchise?
>>422742867The only difficult thing about this is how do you explain Xehanorts darkness cancer just disappearing when both his & Terra's body was restored to when just before they joined. He should be dead by the time KH3 starts.
>>422743524>Xehanorts darkness cancerHe was just old. That's literally it.>He should be dead by the time KH3 starts.I'm sure even in BBS Xehanort had at least a few months in him.
>>422716796For KH1 I generally like going after the Ultima Weapon as early as possible and fighting the SuperbossesFor KH2 I generally do everything except maybe do the Org 13 rematches, Mushroom XIII and Terra simply because those would require me to max out Sora and I dont have the time like I used to have DDD I just play new game + because fuck the dream eaters KH3 is either play a raw file or fuck around with NG+ with the Ultima Weapon
>>422672354Can we get Aqua's spats butt too?
>>422714209Wrong pic. But yes, it did.>"Nomura-san is a visionary. ... There was one time when the team was stuck for a week [solving] a level design problem, and he solved it in five minutes.

Why do people find KH so confusing even if you play all the games or watch the cutscenes? The only thing that's difficult for me to understand is stuff like the sleeping worlds and time travel
>>422751221Because they have to think about what's going on and piece plots together. This is why FF15 was dumbed down to satisfy passive cutscene watchers from its original Versus incarnation under Nomura which was just TWEWY meets Vagrant Story. And yes even if they didn't catch up on side media, they liked the story because it was 'comfy" unlike KH and it's all people seem to care for now (and yet Forspoken flopped).
>>422751221because that's all they've heard parroted from youtubers and randoms on the internet, so they refuse to give into the story and actually absorb what is being told to them only for them to walk away saying "lol kh confusing"this is worsened by streamers playing the game. they pay way too much attention to their stupid fucking chat and obnoxious donation noises, and completely gloss over the game. the game is entirely secondary for them, and they walk away confused. i've seen people get confused by the FIRST fucking game ffs.
>>422640926Toriyama and Kitase involvement in Kindom Hearts when?
>>422751496Again, if they have to spend effort understanding something, they would hate it. >>422751436 here. That's why they hated the last of the Tokyo Team combat in episode Duscae even when Nomura left.
>>422750114>StellafagWhat the hell? Who?>this translationThis has to be fake.
>Nomura: I want to fight the city>Team: Does it>Nomura: Oh you actually did it? I just thought it would be cool if you could.lol
>>422752329>Nomura: Oh you actually did it?And THAT is why they are working on FF16.
>Nomura embraced the Mecha and First Person Shooter memehopefully the GIGAS will be playable again in KH4
>>422752467No they aren't, different kh teams. Stop spamming your fanfiction
>>422751221I genuinely believe most people who say that either don't play jrpgs or just don't pay any attention whatsoever to cutscenes or reports
>>422752467Those guys are long gone, probably working on some other team, i know some have left the company for others.>>422752960I just hope that if it is that there is way more variety in attacks rather than just>shoot >punch>special
>>422752960First person is boring. When he does it again, he needs to take note from the masters.
>>422754287That would be pretty awesome. If i remember correctly Nomura spoke a little about being impressed with Titanfall so that's probably why. Or was that battlefield? In any case it was third person in that one Versus XIII trailer so hopefully that's the case for KH4 too, assuming you do use gigas. I just hope they're less of a pain in the ass to fight on foot.
>>422754617Nomura spoke about Titanfall.At that moment, I knew he could NEVER let go.
>>422727886My brudda, he needs to put on the table each month.
>>422743524How nice of Naruto to invite A for a chiropractic message session.
>>422754617Titanfall's right. I'll never forget my disappointment discovering that it's a first person title. I hope you're right.

>>422765216>funnyjunkwtf? I thought this was some zoomer meme reposting site? people dump art here?
>>422765637Not many but I like it, for the fact that when I use a channel it alerts everyone subbed to it to my art, aswell as a majority of users browsing by new. A lot more people see it that way, for example I've seen 400 people at once looking at my stuff while Twitter/DA I'm lucky if I get 100 total, and if they don't wanna they can block/mute me. I really like the accessibility of it.I also like the somewhat smaller community of it, people are nice and the lack of censorship.>>422765448Gotta love it.
>>422751221Because it only makes sense on a very superficial level or a very very obscured level (that only Nomura has access too). If you're someone who doesn't mind just being ferried along because the plot demands it, then you'll like it. If you're an autist who thinks things will eventually fit together, you pretend you see the master plan when there really is none. Anyone with any awareness probably falls inbetween those levels. They probably also recognize the absolute shit-tier writing (eg, anything with Malificent after KH1) and that wading through hundreds of hours of disorganized mobile videos and retconned ultamanias is not going to be worth the payoff. The series has always been intentionally misleading in how it doesn't explain that fundamentals of our world are not analogous to the KH world (eg, hearts not really being souls but sources of energy, the awful naming of nobodies and heartless etc) but it's gotten worse in the past decade. Things like the Power of Waking and Sleep/Death are simply too ambiguous and serve as plot crutches in ways that question their own construction.For all the bitching, I think time travel makes perfect sense in this series. Ironically.
>>422765734What does it say?
>>422751221Because people do not pay attention to the story. They see disney worlds and expect a narrative on the level of cocomelon so they don't pay attention. And then when it's not cocomelon tier narrative they're confused.
>>422770481>Rematch with Isa (Saiix)!
dreaming about holding hands with Namine
>>422735409iirc it was specifically about his 3D image given KH was one of the first 3D games Mickey hadotherwise they didn't really give a fuck back then too, they wanted Donald to be the main character at first
Larxene just started to rub my butt.
>>422751221You know I actually think the Time Travel in this series is more thoughtfully designed than in a-lot of other media. You can only travel back to a time when you were physically there. So like I couldn't just casually travel back to the Stone age or whatever, and interactions with the past are limited. And in Sora's case, he uses his friends as "checkpoints" go back to the different moments at the Graveyard. I thought it was good.

Finally beat Yozora on crit with no moogle coin. I liked most of the fight but feel conflicted about his actual weaknesses. No way I would've figured out his openings if not for videos (except maybe the invisible sword attack). The reliance on thunder + Quickstep kinda reinforces it for me.Also 95% of his difficulty from the last half of the fight comes from his teleport feint slash, which bottlenecks your progress during the dm and then again if you survive. Goes on way too godamn long in phase 2 when he uses it 4 times in a row.

hope that the opening song for Kh4 is jpop
>>422814609Like super bubbly jpop i mean. More like the ray of hope version of simple and clean. I also hope that it's not just a recap like the previous openings, but more like an acid trip like KH1
>>422814768>I also hope that it's not just a recap like the previous openingsthe only recap it should have is a quick montage of Sora's designs fading into each other in sequence, and by quick i mean a "blink and you'll miss it" kind of thing
What's the hardest KH related challenge you've ever faced? For me it's Yozora
SIMPLE AND CLEAN

>>422821603Right now KH2 as i'm doing a series replay, time to grind some forms, collect some puzzle pieces and drank some beers
The incident still haunts me
Riku? I defeated a Riku once.
>>422825158Whatever you say, Rucksack.
>>422825528So why didn't Riku, Roxas, Mickey and Axel just body organization 13 once Roxas told Riku that he wanted to destroy them, then meet Sora? Kinda seems like a win win to me.
>>422826054Axel hasn't lost enough just yet to go along with betraying the Org outright. And if Xemnas sees the team trying to rush him 4 to 1, he'd probably just take a page out of Ansem's book and create some fuck-off forcefield/corridor of darkness to take them on as he sees fit. Ultimately, the risk of losing Sora in a premature battle against Xemnas outweighed the benefits (although now we know Sora would probably be fine via recompletion, so...).
I can play KH
>>422831270>(although now we know Sora would probably be fine via recompletion, so...).There would have not been a recompletion. He had no heartless and if they ”destroyed” the sora that was sleeping then he would have just died. Also they had to make roxas go near sora to fuse them as ”defeating” roxas would have not completed sora
>>422831937Oh, so his brief stint as a heartless wouldn't count after all?
Reminder that this was basically Verum Rex/KH4 but with a less known project.Chiba is still waiting Square let him to play with his toys again
>>422834417Before VIIR this was the best FF game in a very long timeAnd they just let it collect dust
>>422833153Between stabbing himself in KH1 and Roxas rejoining him in KH2, Sora is still technically a Heartless.
>>422836061No he wasnt. He was a heartless only between stabbing himself and kairi hugging him. That is the reason roxas didnt inherit his memories, as he was a heartless for such a small time
>>422834954I liked 13-2 but is was a WoFF prototype anyway.Also the DS Crystal Chronicles are better FF arpg than 15
We still in gacha hell lads?
>>422713727Yet he still produces fucking click bait. The only good KH youtuber is TheSecretReports, I'm not even meming.
>2023>Still no game with good gameplay where we can play as Roxas for an extended period of time.What the fuck guys. Where is my 358/2 days remake?
>>422834417>WoFF 2 never ever
>>422840526Should have made it more of an action game...
>>422837714/khg/ told me i should play dissidia final fantasy but i dont know if i should trust him...
>>422841020Why? It was fine as a turn based.
>>422839661No, all present gachas have ended thus far. Missing-Link will be the new one, WHENEVER IT RELEASES
>>422841838Because action is what normies care about, anon. It sells. If TWEWY had been Turn-based, I imagine we would have never seen a sequel.
>>422843239Normies can eat a dick.
>>422843239Normie bough P5 and DQ11 though
>>422840481Don't worry Anon. I'll make it.
>>422844929Persona 5 looks cool, has memorable music, and doesn't look like a spinoff. Same for DQ.
>>422845749Please. Honestly I want to play as Roxas just because his dual wield animations are way cooler than valor form. Please give me the 358/2 days remake.
>>422834417>Only one song in Final Bar Linewhy
>>422847080https://youtu.be/n4wongQlJB8If it's just gameplay, waiting for Project Nobody May Cry might be your best bet.
>>422849263Looks good! A little too flashy for me, but still great. I will definitely give it a try when it's out.
>>422854796MAN YOU FUCKING WHAT
>>422854796>king michael lostthe cards were stacked against us the whole time
>>422854796its because kh fans dont have instagram ARGHHHHh
>>422854796it's cause of the big incident i tell you!
>>422854796i bet darkness did this
>>422854796>You wanna talk about stress? You wanna talk about stress?! OK! I've stumbled onto a major contest conspiracy, Yoko--how 'bout that for stress?>What the hell are you talking about?>This contest is being bled like a stuck pig, Yoko, and I've got a paper trail to prove it. Check this out.>Jesus Christ, Tetsu!>That right there are the votes. Now let's talk about the votes. Can we talk about the votes, please, Yoko? I've been dying to talk about the votes with you all day, OK? "KH Mickey" this name keeps coming up over and over again. Every day KH Mickey's votes are getting sent back to me. KH Mickey! KH Mickey! I look at the votes, and this whole box is KH Mickey! So I say to myself, "I gotta find this guy! I gotta go up to his spot and put his votes in the guy's goddamn hands! Otherwise, he's never going to get them and he's going to keep coming back down here." So I go up to Mickey's office and what do I find out, Yoko? What do I find out?! There is no KH Mickey. The man does not exist, okay? So I decide, "Oh shit, buddy, I gotta dig a little deeper." There's no KH Mickey? You gotta be kidding me! I got boxes full of Mickey! All right. So I start marchin' my way down to Mickey in Mickey's Christmas Carol and I knock on his door and I say, "Carol! Carol! I gotta talk to you about Mickey." And when I open the door what do I find? There's not a single goddamn spot in that contest! There...is...no...Mickey in Mickey's Christmas Carol. Yoko, half the entrants in this contest have been made up. This contest is a goddamn big incident.>OK, Tetsu I'm going to have to stop you right there. Not only do all of these people exist, but they've been asking for their votes on a daily basis. It's all they're talking about up there. Jesus Christ, dude, we are going to lose the contest.>Well, calm down because here's one thing that's not going to happen.>What?>We're not gonna lose the contest.>We're not?>Because we've already lost the contest.
>>422854796It's a good cartoon. Not because of Mickey, since he's barely in it, but it's a must watch at Christmas if you don't mind watching multiple Christmas Carols (Muppets Christmas Carol is king).
>>422854796Bullshit. Someone botted the vote against us.
The October incident...
>>422865705Terra and Roxas would smack the shit out of those 3 on their own. Throw Saix into the mix and it's all over.
>>422865705pure battle it would go right side but ventus and vanitas could theoretically make a x-blade, which means the left wins.
>>422865705Are we comparing the characters or the actual medals
>>422866297Characters.>>422865935You really think Terra or Roxas smack the shit out of Sora with two other keyblade wielders? Sora has beaten both of them before (Terranort in the case of Terra).
>>422865705Sora could probably take out Roxas before Terra wipes the floor with his team. Vanitas might be able to take on Saix too if he uses his brain for once.
>>422870978Vanitas would destroy Roxas and Sora would wipe out Terra. On that note, what did the Real Organization call Terra-Xehanort I wonder.
>>422874756>Vanitas would destroy Roxas
>>422874756>Vanitas would destroy RoxasIn what world? Roxas is in the same tier as Sora and Riku, he's a beast.
Sora for KairiRoxas for NamineVentus for XionTerra for Aqua
>>422875553>Ventus for XionAssuming this isn't bait, what makes you lean that way? Kind of just sounds like a crackship to me. And if it is bait, fuck (you).
>>422875553>Ventus for XionXion is for Roxas, same as Namine.Ventus so far has no Kairi. The closest he has is Aqua, who is portrayed more like a mother or caretaker or older sibling, and Strelitzia, who he was used by Darkness to kill and never really personally knew.
>>422875747>>422875769Ephemer for SkuldBrain for Strelitzia Lauriam for Elrena
>>422875220>Same tier as Sora and Riku-Let's not get crazy here. And Vanitas has a whole army inside him on top of his own abilities as a wielder, so that's why.
With how KH3 had very samey air and ground attacks i'd wish it would have had directional inputs to have different combos instead, like in dissidia.
>>422876447>Let's not get crazy here
I wish KH4 would have a heavy combat system, but the trailer showed the opposite
>>422876447>Let's not get crazy hereIn that same fight Roxas downs Riku before he unleashes Ansem. Without the Ansem boost they are literally 1 to 1 in score. Against Sora he loses but only barely, mainly because he didn't finish Sora off and got caught off guard by the keyblade being re-summoned from under him (and Sora being protagonist).Cope all you'd like, Roxas is one of the heaviest hitters in KH.
>>422876803I mean Sora learned transformations so i'm sure he'd take it
>>422876880Roxas learned teleportation lad.
>>422876690That's why it should play more like dissidia
>>422876909>>422876880No point in shit flinging Sora vs Roxas, easier to just accept they are both relative to one another. If you really want to push it Sora probably has the edge due to versatility of abilities across all the games, but even so Roxas has a good kit. They're both really powerful, which makes sense since they're cut from the same cloth.
Sora & Roxas are literally the same person with the same powers. Anything one can do, so can the other. The only reason Sora doesn't dual wield as much as Roxas is because... ???? Don't worry about it. He could if he felt like it. If Roxas can spontaneously turn invincible on a whim like the GOD he is, then so can Sora.
>>422876645Once, Roxas. Once. >>422876803>Still conscious>More confused than pained>Puts Roxas to sleep the moment the boy actually tries to finish the fightEven the Ansem boost was Riku using his own power. >>422876909Anon, who do you think he got it from?
>"For example," said supervising producer Hideaki Itsuno, "let's say you're making a punch motion. If it's going at the same speed from the time you start swinging to the end of the follow-through, it's not going to feel all that forceful. There's a sort of charging-up period at the start, and then a snap or a whoosh as you quickly push forward on it; that's what makes it feel good."This is what the osaka guys need to learn and implement
>>422877047I'd like to see KH borrow Nioh/Dark Souls combat
>>422877464Who do you think Sora learned it from Anon?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GgQBvs-xts
>>422877464>More confused than painedAh yes, he was in so little pain. That's why he wears a cast over the arm Roxas hit when he downed him, and why he doesn't use that arm much in KH2 right?>H- HeadcanonEven if you get full benefit of the doubt and we assume the cast is a wacky Nomura fashion statement, Roxas' blow with Oblivion broke through Riku's barrier AND did enough damage through it to bring him to his knees. If he didn't have the Ansem amp after he would have lost.>Even the Ansem boost was Riku using his own power. Can't forget Riku's iconic ability to use the guardian I guess, silly me.
I still think it's pretty fuckin' wild the way Roxas just EXPLODES out of the sky at like 9,000,000 mph.
>>422877813>Riku using the guardianThe guardian thing ticks me off. How's he work? During KH3, we see that Ansem has the guardian during his fight with Aqua, and at the mansion. But afterward we no longer see him with it, because Terranort is using it? Kinda silly.
>>422877813>Falling on your knees for a second is worse than being knocked out in a fightAnonymous.
>>422878297Point is he was unable to continue without the Ansem boost. I'm saying they both basically scored a win in that fight through the knockdown each got.
>>422877707KH1. And I say Dissida because KH3 was pretty close to that already. Needs to super good feeling combos though. Also, I hope they work on the vfx for KH4. Like compare a simple sword combo from dissidia to KH3 or so. Just the vfx. Honestly i hate that the little stars come out and fall like they have weight, i'd prefer if they just flew straight outwards.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOsB1b7gdiQEnemy stun and reaction to attacks too. Of course, it can't be as exaggerated as dissidia, it's a fighting game of course.
>>422878490Oh yeah and I hate the sound design for keyblades, wet noodles slapping around.
>>422878648Hunny Spout bros...
All KH4 needs to do is have combos as good as Ars Arcanum was in KH3. And hitboxes. Some hitboxes were kinda jack in KH3, like compare let's say Ultima tornado attack and Ars Arcanum.
>>422879692I thought Ars felt kinda stinky in 3. KH1's is nice.
>>422879821I like it cuz it had a good tempo. Also something that I hope they improve on in KH4. The "rhythm" for lack of a better word, of combos. The forms they added double and such make me hopeful they already are.
>>422878413One more definitive than the other, but alright. Either way, it doesn't mean Roxas has an answer to Vanitas.
>>422878490Posting this again just cuz i can. Seriously it's too beautiful. Perfectly fitting for Eraqus and Xehanort.www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rRz2DSVjSE
>>422880253Vanitas doesn't have an answer to him either?? It comes down to strength speed and abilities, all of which Roxas have over him.
>>422881650Can't he just shit some unversed at him, totally underused idea btw
>>422881650He does, actually.
>>422834417I didnt mean to quote you with legos.Don't forget TWEWY waiter forever to get a sequel and the only reason it did was when the anime came out Nomura or someone else pitched it again and they let him BECAUSE of the anime. Imagine all the cancelled games we aren't allowed to know about. The keyblade armour is based on one said Nomura in an interview for the batman playarts figure... so that's another canceled game Nomura saved with KH.Save us Nomura pls put them in KH4 Only one song from WoFF got in theathrythm too
>>422883648>Only one song from WoFF got in theathrythm tooAnd it wasn't even the best/most memorable one
>>422865705Well let's see>SN++ KH3 Sora stacks S-Str, no Count change, has a chance of crit, x92.06 mult>SN++ Ven has SN refresh but no Str stacking, x69.89 mult>SN++ Vanitas has S-Reflect, but that doesn't matter. Also has Pierce, which still doesn't matter, x84.17 mult>SN++ Terra has SN refresh, x69.89 mult>SN++ Roxas has M-Str stacking, but that doesn't matter because his teammates are Power type, x67.03 mult>Saix+ has +7 boosts and is also the only 6-star medal here, x24.09 multIt's a clear giveaway to the left side. Vanitas and Sora hit hard, Sora stacks strength that benefits the team, and Ven has SN renew that all three benefit from.On the right Terra's SN renew doesn't affect anyone because Roxas is Magic and Saix doesn't even have a supernova, Roxas doesn't synergize, and Saix+ is just shit that should've been replaced three years ago.
>>422883717Also the guy whp wrote it wrote the entire fucking sequel already Square just doesnt care about it
>>422884054Actually what am I saying? Pierce does matter for Shift Pride, so Vanitas is potentially even stronger depending on if it procs or not.

Mad Maiden speaks on Mean Maiden superiority. I'm including premium currency revives as deaths.
>>422893912I think the only times I've ever spent jewels on revives were by accident and in a critical challenge against this guy where the prize was more jewels then I would spend, and I wasn't able to beat it otherwise.
>>422892987Damn that's a really good design.

Riku riding a motorcycle around Quadratum when?
>>422876803Riku was trying to suppress his darkness and trying to capture Roxas alive. Roxas was using all his powers and went in with bloodlust. You people are aware these make a big difference right?
>>422900997>Roxas was using all his powersDefinitely not. In neither cutscene, nor DS battle. Where were any of his powerful light-based abilities?
>>422901230Too weak to summon the reaction commands for them.
>>422901437Makes sense. Thanks.
Sleeping with Aqua
aqua is my mommy and i squeeze her booby while she sleeps
>>422877464i wish this kind of stuff returned in later games, doesn't even have to be a complicated system, just put them as normal abilities and balance them with AP cost. Would make for a cooler ability system that lends to a customized experience instead of abilities being mostly "okay now you can do one less combo attack (laughs)"
>>422920715I think we could get more variety by imbuing magical properties into the keychains. Like adding gravity magic into KH4's equivalent to Olympia or Holy spells on the Oathkeeper. Then we add in some of the old abilities through the command menu, and the rest that couldn't be fit in that way go into the build system somehow.
>>422924130yeah elemental attacks/abilities is another of my wants, though i'd still prefer for it to go through the abilities and not equipment, with equipment only having support/boosts abilities. Or i guess you could do that and also have idk the fire themed keyblade giving you fire element abilities that you learn permanently by using said keyblade. I wouldn't mind them to delve a bit more on the rpg side
Kingdom Hearts does something interesting with Riku. He’s set up at the beginning of the game as the player and the player character, sora’s, rival through gameplay and narrative alike. His initial early-game boss fight establishes Riku as the primary barometer for the player’s capabilities within the game’s systems. That’s the set up. The punch line, coiled and poised to outstretch and clothesline the player at mach 2, is Riku’s final boss fight – Dark Riku, awaiting at the ominous castle of Hollow Bastion. Regular Riku is difficult, way more difficult than might be reasonable at the very start of a game. However, he’s optional and therefor more of a story beat for both the game’s narrative and the emotional experience the player is being primed for. Dark Riku is not optional, and Dark Riku is levels above his predecessor. This boss also represents a notable difficulty spike and more or less fulfills the role of narrative climax to Kingdom Hearts, and that aforementioned emotional experience for the player themselves. People remember this boss fight. There’s something about it that sticks with you. It leaves an impact.
>>422875553Roxas can only love Axel, any other pairing doesn't even make sense
I have only played Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and 3. I'm caught up on the entire story, but never had the opportunity to actually play the rest because of the system split and people saying the gameplay sucked compared to the main games. I finally want to pick one up, but am not sure.>Birth by SleepLeaning toward this because three playable characters seem cool, and Xehanort / Vanitas are based. But I've heard it has gameplay thats trash tier, barely above 358/2.>Re:CoMPlaying as Riku seems cool, and the story / cast of the game is also nice. I've heard that the card gameplay is either really good or really, really bad based on your taste. Recycling a lot of KH1 locations too obviously but I don't think I mind that.>DDDI have heard nothing but bad things.Which one should I play, /khg/?
>>422926464How about roxas X sea-salt-icecream?
>>422927005If you are caught in the story and care only about gameplay. Then play re:coded
>>422927005DDD and ReCom are pretty good games, BBS is trash though.
>>422927419/khg/ and /v/ loved BBS before the speedrunners
>>422927005>Birth by SleepThe comand deck is cool because you can build too much shit , the final bosses are well done and the combat being more grounded make it differentBut the keyblade being just stat boost , the secret boss being trash and the floatie feeling can made you hate it.>Re:CoMPlay GBA not the remake>DDDBoth DDD and 2.8 are KH3 prototype.The problem with DDD is that the Command deck is broken unlike Re:Coded and BBS.
>>422927005his KH4 hair looks like shit
>>422930636Don't remind me. I still mourn his absolute fucking DRIP in KH2. He has never and will never look better.>>422927225Will try Re:Coded when I get emulation up, that and 358/2.>>422927419>>422927820>>422928881Kind of curious to see such a wide range of opinions on BBS. Might start with that one just to formulate my own opinion on it.
>>422927820It's amazing to me how some faggot on youtube can completely change the perception of a game or a movie or whatever. I've seen it happen way too often.
>>422924585I think adding elements to equipment will help delving into that RPG stuff a lot with that, personally. You could do tons with the hypothetical Olympia. >Like Re:Coded, it has attack bracer and some variation of the impact arts>Every hit does basic gravity damage and the finisher turns your opponent into a pancake>Being classified as a "heavy" keychain, it could take up twice as much space as a normal keyblade and restrict you to switching between only two>In place of your normal commands, you get three gravity-themed action commands mapped to your shortcuts. You can customize your keychain to take one command over from your other keychains, but otherwise it's filled in with cure or an item. >Expanding on the action commands, you could get abilities like rising strike (the twist of course being that you're casting Zero graviga on your opponent at the same time), round blitz for demi, and the counter hammer (the attack piles up stones which you can gather to create a shield or projectiles) >To give its use a cost, all attacks would slowly burn away at your MP for each keychain equipped, incentivizing players to look into equipment to lower that burden as much as possible >You could also make endurance test challenges around a keychain like thisJust some thoughts at the top of my head
>>422927005play all of them and ignore what "people online" said cause they're all easily swayed reactionary tards that got their opinions from angry youtubersthe only advice is to go in with an open mind and, most of all, stop thinking in "mashing attack button", which applies to all KH games in general but even more so to the non-numbered ones
>>422927005Xehanort is an interesting character, Vanitas is a complete cookie-cutter edgelord
>>422933562my worry with that is that it would be a kind of "you can only do this with this equipment", which i don't like, while doing it with abilities would make it easier (codeword for "it's less likely for them to fuck it up") to have a more freeflow system where whatever you pick still gives you lots of options and doesn't necessarily lock you in an archetype. That's not to say i don't like your ideas, in fact i do, but i also think they would work better as abilities not tied to anything specific. Basically, just like sleights or commands, except they're not necessarily a completely separate special move but something that weaves in your normal combos, in addition to the actual separate moves like your lethal frames and your thunder surgesthat said i also agree that having keyblades with more involved attributes would be cool
Why did they do it?
>>422936487I can see why abilities being restricted to certain equipment could be annoying, but I feel like it could add an element of strategy to encounters if done well. The feeling of archetypes was also a bit intentional. Sora's versatile and all (and even in this hypothetical situation he'd still mostly be thanks to Keyblade switching), but having some more pronounced builds in the game would be a nice change of pace. Moreover, doing it this way has the potential to please twice as many people. For the fans who miss the more methodical, wieghty combat of 1, they have things like the Olympia. For people who liked the more flashy, out-there combat of 2-3, they could have keychains like the Oathkeeper and Oblivion. You could even make some middle-of-the-road build for people who liked the command decks/sleights with some Spellbinder type keychain. That said, you're right in mentioning the team's ability to fuck all this up. It would probably be for the best that we keep it to abilities. I imagine we could manage a lot of what you're saying if we had a more tradition combo system for 4, which would be a lot simpler to implement than what I've been suggesting, so fingers crossed.
>>422947525Have you played 358/2?Because ability panel mangement is easily one of the most frustrating aspects and takes away a massive amount of time from the actual game. Add to that needing to change equipment and keyblade for enemy weaknesses or rolling items for certain abilities... I just think it'll get too cumbersome. Considering that the KH teams have learned almost nothing about mechanical design in 20 years, I'm not willing to trust them with that level of complexity. I'm also of the opinion that KH2 had way too many options to the point that I didn't want to bother with them and their intricacies. KH3 was pretty good about giving you options but still being completely beatable without formchanges.
>>422947525>but having some more pronounced builds in the game would be a nice change of pacei do get that, but at the same time i feel like i wouldn't want specific builds like that. Though i guess keyblade switching could make it work if it let you switch between 2 or 3 of them, kinda like Strangers of Paradise. Then again in that game you basically end up with "Job that does everything - Magic" and "Job that does everything - Non-elemental/Physical" as your two choices, but that's on them putting these specific jobs that are all around better than other ones, which is again my main fear for going with a system like this
>>422840481> You dual wield for all of 1 chapter > Gameplay sucks worse than a Nokia emulating SM64> Xion steals all of Roxas' attention and being generally insufferable> Axel-Saix relationship and scheming plot points fizzle out > Boss battles last literally hours > Chamber of Repose referenced for last time with no satisfying explanation given.> Half the org dies in the first 25% of the game> Literally no new worlds and only a few truly unique roomsEverything about this game is a disappointment except for the Braig-Ventus drop, Vector and the bottom-screen shenanigans.
>>422951945>You dual wield for all of 1 chapter To be fair pic rel showed that axel didnt know about roxas having two keyblades, so it needed to be only after they parted ways>Literally no new worlds and only a few truly unique roomsTechnically neverland is a new world, because we have been only in the ship previously.Agree with everything else you pointed out. God i wish they would do another ”villain game”
>>422951930Your concerns are valid. We rarely ever delve into this stuff in Kingdom Hearts, so it's not like we can say with confidence that the team would be going in with experience on the matter. We could introduce a thief job into the series for the sake of gathering up build meter/materials, but then its worth depends entirely on the build system being any good. If party members ever become worth a damn like they were in 1, we could also introduce a support class, but I'm not holding my breath for that. >>422950739Yeah, but there's reasons why it didn't work out for Days. The mission structure meant you had to worry about switching out gear every five minutes. With KH4 being a proper adventure, we can just gear up for an entire world/area and be set. And without the ability to switch out keychains on the fly, of course things get frustrating with all the menuing. But with what I'm suggesting, you'd be able to do that. You've still got a point about this being a bit much for the team to handle though. I'll be satisfied if we can have fodder enemy encounters worth a damn. The Heartless Sora fought in 1 had a rhyme and reason to them, but the boy's grown up and we need more impressive enemies to reflect that.
>>422928881Based GBA enjoyer. >>422927005>Birth by SleepThe story's mid, the characters are ok to annoying (Aqua's a retard, Ven's a retard but not as much of one, and Terra is alright but still incompetent as a hero), the secret bosses are trash. Command-melding and grinding is fun until you either run out of passive abilities to gain or realize that 90% of the commands in the game are just kinda worthless. Still a fun game to break, though. >COMRemember to stock up on map cards or you'll regret it. Don't be like me, anon. >DDD Not the one to talk about it since I haven't played it in ages. Story wise, I'd say it's a waste of potential.
>>422956284>the secret bosses are trashI can understand MF. But i think no heart, armor of the master, and vanitas remnant are fun bosses
>>422956284>Terra is alright but still incompetent as a hero)
>>422956635Anon, I only played the PSP version. Working with what I've got here.
>>422957247Im pretty sure that MF was the only one that had changes in later versions
>>422957360No Heart and Armor of Eraqus are FM exclusives. And I never checked with Vanitas Remnant so you might be right.
>>422957570>And I never checked with Vanitas Remnant so you might be right.But you unlock MF after defeating vanitas remnant?
>>422957670I mean I never checked to see if there were differences between the versions.
>>422956284>Story wise, I'd say it's a waste of potential.Mind ellaborating on this part?
>>422957863There are multiple problems I have with it (the game is a poor man's COM, Keyblade Mastery is worthless so spending an entire game on trying to become one makes the game feel like a waste of time), but the biggest would be the failure to really create active stakes for Sora. When you really think about it, the quest to revive all the fallen characters from previous titles might as well be a glorified side quest for our hero. He doesn't know these people. He didn't even meet some of them. The only guy he's remotely familiar with is Roxas, and even that bond is kinda weak as motivation. DDD was Sora's last chance to develop an actual stake in the fight against Xehanort, all Nomura saw fit to do was mindrape the boy so he could repeat his arcs from 1-2.
>I know now, without a doubt, /khg/... is comfy!
>>422952763>God i wish they would do another ”villain game”Have faith
Nomura drew this sundaythe incident is too strong
>>422964769I saw one where he drew a doddle of sora with the keyblade but i lost it
>>422964769i like the idea of nomura sort of aimlessly wandering around leaving little grumpy soras all over the place similarly to the lucky emblems
What is the reaction command he uses to close the battle?
>>422965591This'n. Clone begone.
>>422965879look at that larxene...
>>422965879Look at how pissed off Sora looks when he grabs her. He remembers what she did in CoM
Hey guys can I get a qrd on the October incident?
>>422966593>what she did in CoMUnf
>>422968520>He doesn't know
>>422968812No I haven't been following kh news since 3 was a massive disappointment but I heard there was an incident at an event in October that will change the future of the series and was wondering what happened
>>422968520It's literally nothing
>>422969034No one knows what it is. It was most likely an internal thing. And nothing was announced as happening last october so it was something specifically about KH. Probably.
>>422962262Huh so that explains all the fanart about OrgXIII members playing instruments that I have seen on twitter
>>422969034It's unspeakable, man. We can't tell you. Nomura swore us all to secrecy.
I hope they bring back the gacha heartless in Kh4
>>422964769He only signed Shimomura’s concert pamphlet
What's his obsession with this incident shit? It's very clear that part of the message was lost during the Google translate translation
>>422970687It was literally said by a bilingual person there that nonura mentioned an October incident
>>422970687it's a joke
>>422970328Sora's japanese VA also signed her pamphlet
>>422970687It was shown that Numora had something to say but only had 5 minutes to say it.
>>422970782You mean the bitch that has mistranslated a lot shit? The same bitch that only looked at the back of Kairi's lucky charm during that Disney hotel event and thought they were going to reveal a new keyblade before the kh4 trailer?
>>422970687Reports say that Nomura looked quite dishevelled and depressed talking about the incident. Not to mention shouting to Yoko to get back to work, to try and fool people into thinking nothing is wrong. I think it's over.
What are the odds this is just nomura fucking with everyone
>>422971538he was.The original report from aibo had him teasing yoko for not knowing about the big happening and he told her he'll fill her in backstage.
>>422971424Yout hate women.
>>422971945Yes, but that's not important right now.
>>422970687>What's his obsession with this incident shit?
>>422973969Most fitting image in this thread
>>422970687Isn't it rare that only the western fanbase are making this into a big deal while the japanese are mostly chill about it
>>422897456because aqua is sexy
>>422973969>Has darkness taken ye, anon?!
Little Darkling girl Ana on vacation in Halloween Town.
>>422975275Almost like they're the most autistic...
Hearing Donald's voice back to back between KH1 and KH3 is depressing. It might be time for him to retire. :(
>>422980691Donald and Goofy are the most consistent voices.
>>422981223KH3 Donald sounds incredibly rough compared to every other game prior.
>>422981776Yeah but he still sounds fine unlike let's say Hades
>>422966593>He remembers what she did in CoMNo he doesn't
>Star Wars world reveal on May 4thBet on it
>>422982305The heart remembers even if the mind doesn't.
>>422983238May the 4th be with you hehe
i decided to put my autism to the test while rewatching episode VI and this is how i believe the eventual endor world will play out:>SDG drop on a random ridge in the forest same time Luke and the others do, they start talking about the place when they hear an explosion (Luke and the others being discovered), they start running towards it until they see the speeders "race" between Luke and the troopers>"haha that's so fun let's go look!">they walk a bit (probably playable segment) until they find Han and those other randos waiting, C3PO says "Somebody's coming" and unlike the movie it's SDG instead of Luke. When Han asks who they are heartless attack the group, and Luke gets there at that moment. Cue fight with Luke as party member, maybe Han and Chewie too idk>fight's over, movie plots continues as normal (with some bit expanded to allow for gameplay sections)>at the ewoks village C3PO's retelling of the previous movies events is changed to bring SDG, and the players, up to speed too, then Luke and Leia have their talk>that village bit becomes playable and serves as a hub where you can talk to people and interact with ewoks and whatever, save point and all>SDG decide to go after Luke (given nobody else in the movie seemed to care he just left like that)>scene with Luke turning himself in, Luke and Vader have their talk>more forest gameplay and eventually reach the empire base, fight with Vader (in the movie he has Luke being escorted by troopers while he stays back for a moment, this is when the fight happens)>it's a "you lose even if you win" fight, SDG are captured and brought to the death star>rest of the movie plot continues as normal with SDG being kept from it until the end (they reunite with Luke as Vader is dying) as usual, on the flipside the time is spent exploring the death star and fighting both heartless and all kind of empire minions>final boss, somehow palpatine returned as a dark force ghost>movie ends, they say their goodbyes yada yada
>>422983563now onto my explanation: this is mostly how i can see it happen to fit stuff people would want (death star exploration, vader fight) without changing too much of the plot and avoid touching stuff that shouldn't be changed at all (most importantly Vader and Luke's fight, which would need to be completely different if SDG are there too, not to mention it not being a personal fight for Luke anymore). Like the only other way for them to not being kept from the plot without changing it is to instead staying on the moon with Han and the others, but that means no death star exploration. Speaking of, movie events while SDG are there would unfold via intermission cutscenes that happen every time SDG make meaningful progress, implying the death star is pretty big and has stuff like multiple mid-bosses and the like (ie, red guards)With all that said i do realize one big fatal flaw in all of this: doing it like this means the bulk of the world is only there while the plot is going cause it gets destroyed at the end and can't be revisited later, but i guess they could just say "a wizard did it" and bring it back in a ooc moment. Maybe even put in a Vader remnant boss fight why the fuck not
>>422970328>>422970927She also received autographs from the arrangers and the pianist

Being trained by Aqua at the gym! She's distracting.
How disappointed would you be if MoM turned out to be future Sora?
>>422991593I'm not a turbo autist soo
>>422991698You're not ready for kino
>>422985187His dm is pure fucking bullshit by the 2nd half when he summons the gigas and the black hole sphere explosion.
>>422992467>by the 2nd halfDid you know that there's a random chance that he will immediately start his 2nd phase at the beginning of the fight
>>422991593I'd prefer that over MoM being Demyx
>>422993353>hehe the jokester of the group is the Tobi/Madara all along!No, shut up.
>>422996079>>hehe the jokester of the group is the Tobi/Madara all along!I just call that Sans. But that's already Xigbar...
i want to name my kid ventus!
Alright everyone say hi to your new mom.
>>422991593A bit but not that much although i'd like a completely new character
>>422996079>Implying "the good guy actually becomes le big bad guy" is any betterFuck you
>>422997538Anonymous, you can't just set your kid up for failure like that.
>>422996079>>hehe the jokester of the group is the Tobi/Madara all along!Please, not that shit again. I'd rather have the MoM just be like he is now- a genuinely kinda goofy guy like Tobi was, but a unique character. No secret identity shit.
MoM has to be someone we know, otherwise there's no point to him being hidden.
>>423004645>KH1 secret boss has to be someone we know or else there's no point to him being hidden.>The guy in the KH1 secret ending has to be someone we know or there's no point to him being hidden.>Lingering Will has to be someone we know or there's no point to him being hidden.>The masked keyblade wielders in the KH2 secret ending has to be someone we know or there's no point to him being hidden.Please stop being dumb.
>>423005546Imagine this happening to someone the first time they fight him
>>423004878>Ansem's other half>Sora's other half>guy who looks like "Xehanort"/Xemnas>guy who looks like RoxasAl you got is Aqua, bitch.
>>423006898Nomura didn't even have designs in mind for TVA by that point. Read the ultimanias ANONYMOUS.
>Yoshiyuki Tomino became a co-writer for KH4 following the October big incident
>>423006898LMAO.>They're related or look like someone! Same character!Fuck off.
small preview of Reality in the Dark trackhttps://youtu.be/JJrEsNnyLh4
>>423011763Is it just me or does it sound more grand than the one in KH4's trailer?
>>423011987This one probably sounds better since it doesn't have all the sound effects and talking from the trailer
Bit far ahead but i hope that for KH5 Sora's hair is longer and spikier, like his hair as a child. Or like Sion Barzahd.
>>423015405Trust the plan
Kairi will have bigger boobs in kh4
>>423018709What about Namine?
>>423023479her dress will be too small..
>>423011763I wonder if it will actually play in kh4
If anyone's curious this is a list of the music that was performed at the orchestra along with what tracks were part of the medleys1) Hikari -KINGDOM Orchestra Instrumental Version-2) Journey of the World of Tres> Dearly Beloved (KH3 version)> Hero's Fanfare > Toy Box Jam> Swingin' Free> Miracle on Ice> Flags of Fury> Robot Overdrive > Monster Smash!3) Heroes and Heroines: Characters' Medley -Second Breath Ver.-> Sora> Riku > Kairi> Namine> Roxas> Musique pour la tristesse de Xion> Terra> Aqua> Ventus > Enter to Darkness 4) Hollow Bastion5) Happiest Medley of KINGDOM HEARTS> Destiny Islands (KH1 version)> Hand in Hand (KH1 version)> Lazy Afternoons (KH2 version)> Shipmeisters' Shanty (KH2 version)> Gearing Up> Traverse Town> Dream Eaters > Dearly Beloved (KH1 version)6) Dark Impetus6) Rage Awakened 8) Distant from You...9) Scala ad Caelum ~ Edge of Existence10) Hearts as One11) Forza Finale12) March Caprice for 'Melody of Memory'13) Reality in the Dark14) Don't Think Twice -KINGDOM Orchestra Instrumental Version-
>>423027869>3) Heroes and Heroines: Characters' Medley -Second Breath Ver.-No vanitas this time around, but enter the darkness. interesting.
>>423028210What do you mean? It's the same composition from the previous orchestrahttps://www.khwiki.com/Heroes_and_Heroines:_Characters%27_Medley
>>423004645I'd prefer if the faceless hood was his design at this point but like that other anon said it's probably just a placeholder like with the previous villains, then once he's front and center in a console game they can do the dramatic face reveal. But if he takes the hood down and never hides his face again that'd suck. Middle ground could be them showing his face when he's having private discussions with Xigbar but the rest of the time he's in full mystery nigga mode.
>>423027869full version of Reality in the Dark when?
>>423028210Enter the darkness is basically his theme song
it's time for KH to get rid of black hoods
>>423030628I'm tired of the black cloaks being everywhere, honestly. It stopped being cool after KH2.Give RAX some proper drip. Same with Luxu and the recompleted Nobodies like Luxord, Larxene, and Marluxia. Get Demyx a proper attire while we're at it.MoM can keep it though. It'd be cool to see him throw it off like Mickey does in KH2, but I'm also okay with him keeping it on.
>>423030628But they're so stylish AND comfy
>>423011763>>423027869where's ML's dearly beloved
>>423030920So is the guy with him hooded because it isn't Luxu, or is it because Nomura wants Luxu's beautiful Quadratum design to be a big reveal?
How would you react if MoM took off his hood, only to reveal that his face is that of the october big incident that changed KH forever
>>423031162Hopefully next year
>>423031919But I want it now
>>423030908I'd rather that not happen. Every KH3 original outfit was trash aside from KH3 Sora.
>>423004878I'd say the difference is their role while having their identity hidden. MoM hasn't just appeared for a few minutes as a bonus boss, or in a teaser. He's a proper character unlike KH1 Xemnas, Roxas in the secret ending, Lingering Will, or TAV in the original KH2 secret ending. But I will say that Lingering Will's identity wasn't exactly hidden by the time he was a boss, the original KH2 sure, but we could put a face to the armour by KH2 Final Mix.Of course he doesn't have to be someone we know for there to be a reason to not show his face. Instead of being someone we know now, he could be some other character in Quadratum who'll reveal that they're MoM. It could even be that with him lopping parts off himself to in things that he's little more than a heart inhabiting a black coat. But not having any sort of appearance shown yet is unusual for KH. Given that he hasn't just appeared in a game for someone to fight, say vague things and leave, or in just in KH3's secret ending as a mystery black coat doing heart signs at the sun.
Yoko Shimomura is on vacation in Destiny islands https://twitter.com/midiplex/status/1638471288737132544
>>423035272Good for her. She deserves a quick break after being part of the orchestra
>>423004878>Yozora is someone else and we know who he is but not who he looks like after a million of opposite examplesWhat did Nomura mean by this?
Are these all the current mystery niggas?>Yozora>If we meet Yozora it might not be Yozora>Master of Masters>Sigurd>Luxord's identity in Quadratum>Demyx' deal>If Yozora and Stella 2 electric boogaloo had heart shenanigans happen what about Magia, Aegis? >The 2nd guy with MoM in the KH4 trailer?>The guy with No Name Keyblade in missing link isn't Luxu right??/>Stella 2 electric boogaloo's body and name were stolen so if we meet her it'll be someone else>The guy who did this to Yozora and Stella 2 electric boogaloo
>>423027869Besides reality in the dark, im looking forward for dark Impetus and happiest medley
>>423027869>No destati Sad
>>422991593I’m bored with characters being recycled, create more new characters nomura you fucking hack
>>423035272Looks comfy, where is she actually at?
>>423037632Fuck idk maybe Okinawa
>>423027869Is it only Hollow Bastion or is it like a medley with Scherzo di notte ?
>>423037858From what people have been saying on twitter it looks like it was only the Hollow Bastion world theme and not the battle theme
>>423037912What a bummer
>>423011763Damn this sounds good
