Title: Kingdom Hearts re: Chain of memories
Description: Just wont stop milking the cash cow
Sweetsuzie - December 19, 2008 01:21 AM (GMT)
As you may or may not know I'm a big fan of KH. and was excited to hear that they finaly released the ps2 version of the gba game Chains of memories, which serves as a inbetweener of the event that led to KH2 and why you can thank your lucky stars that you didn't have to fight all 13 of the organization 13 memebers in KH2. :stansweat:
Whether you love it or hate. I just felt like posting it just in case anyone didn't know about it. :stansmile:
I'm such a dork, I bought it as soon as square enix notify me that they made the english version. :stanlove: :stanlove: :stanlove:
now I just have to wait for the DS game 365 day/ whatever game for ds since I probably wont be able to play birth by sleep for psp. :stancry:
Xor - December 19, 2008 01:26 AM (GMT)
Yeah, I hate how they do that. Come out with all the good games for the playstation systems and make the series side stories for the DS.
And I'll probably get this to. Since, I love kingdom hearts two. And especially XIII and Axel. <3
Sweetsuzie - December 19, 2008 01:39 AM (GMT)
Yeah Axel had that sassy charisma in the second game. LOL "got it memorized?" *shot*
I played it a bit even though I left my memory card at my mom's house(dammit!) guess I gotta go there to get it.
And while everything is preditable and obvious to me like
Marluxia is the mysterious guy leading Sora to castle oblivion.*
That card battle thing is a little odd, since I so used to just beating the stuffing out of a monster and not having to worry that I have a set about of turns to do attack before I have to reload again. And I love the weird dejavu nostalgia vibe from the game, it feels like KH1 but the places look different and slightly warped, and it feel new and familiar at the same time. I'm only worried that this maybe more difficult than what I'm used to due to the different battle system.
I do also like in the DS upcoming KH game Xion is a character I could actually cosplay as without dying my hair or whatever, though I probably be to self concious to pull it off.
Spookty - December 19, 2008 01:45 AM (GMT)
Huh, really? I think I have the GBA version. Eh.
It's pretty decent, but after a while you sort of learn to hate the card system. Especially if a boss battle starts to drag on.
Xor - December 19, 2008 01:45 AM (GMT)
Xion? Do you mean Zexion? I bet I could name all of their pre-organization XIII names if you asked. Well besides Axel. The only thought I have about his is Ale, but i don't know why he's be named after alcohol.
And I played a ROM of chain of memories for the GBA. Its not that hard, well unless you run out. I keep on and forgetting. ><
Sweetsuzie - December 19, 2008 02:12 AM (GMT)
No Xion is...
Kairi's heartless, but oddly she became the fourthteenth member of the organization, I dont know much about her other than that and that she only appears in the DS game somethin'/days. (I dont know why its hard for me to remember this title)
Xor - December 19, 2008 02:22 AM (GMT)
WHAT?! KAIRI?! I thought Namine was Kairi's nobody?
Sweetsuzie - December 19, 2008 02:33 AM (GMT)
I said Xion is Kairi's heartless counterpart, its still odd they'd let her join since she isn't a nobody, unless they plan to exploit her in some way.
You should check out the sprite comic Ansem retort
it is funny and wrong at the same time I never liked Larxene till I saw her like this in the comic. LOL
Rosalyne - December 19, 2008 02:56 AM (GMT)
I have already bought KH2: Re:COM. The Re:COM is pretty cool. It can get hard at time though, sence its completely in japanese. You can't read the cards unless you knwo japanese. The extra KH2 with extra stuff in it is pretty much the same as KH2 regular except it has a new level, extra costumes, new weapons, forms for sora, and fights with the dead organization 13 people. Its pretty cool. I'm still trying to beat Re:COM now.
Sweetsuzie - December 19, 2008 03:07 AM (GMT)
Oh yeah KH remix. I saw my friends playing it in the club room and although I probably do well in the fights, I'm always worried of messing up in front of my friends.
Oh I was talking about the english version
YamiLover13 - December 19, 2008 06:41 PM (GMT)
I saw that game in the stores a week or so ago. As neat as it would be to see a more highly graphical pink scyth and cherry blossoms flying on the screen would be, I would still rather not get this. I already played through it and it was aganizing! (The card system never made me happy. ZOMG! Heal now! Where is the heal. Aw *#%(& ) Though I guess it was not as boring as Riku's part of the story. Hey run through all these worlds with no story line and you have nothing but attack cards you can't even modify. Good luck.
Why would a heartless be in the organization you say? Because they are trying to surprise people. (I would have been more surprised if it was a whole new character that had nothing to do with Kairi, Riku, or Sora.) Really I think the Organization just noticed how horribly one sided the guy to girl ratio was and decided they would find any excuse to get another girl to join. Wait that lighting person was a girl right?
Xor - December 19, 2008 07:58 PM (GMT)
It doesn't make sense though. Usually heartless don't have forms like that. And actually Larxene WAS the only female member of the organization. Believe it or not Marluxia is male.
Boogie Knight - December 19, 2008 09:04 PM (GMT)
From what I read, this game came as a bonus to those who got KH2 in Japan. Kind of a gyp having to pay for it.
Sweetsuzie - December 19, 2008 09:29 PM (GMT)
Larxene( the lighting girl) is in the organization you mean, yami.
While I agree Boogie I rather get it hable en english? lol
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 23, 2008 01:44 AM (GMT)
Oh yes, getting that for Christmas. Playing it on the GBA was the most irritating thing. And of course, Organization XIII is the best. *insert fan-rant here*
Two interesting things about Marluxia.....First, apparently he was meant to be a girl, but the series is a yaoi universe. And also, the color pink was originally supposed to be marketed for boys until blue got a better vote, way back when. I will never forget that particular fact. I also RP a Marluxia. Very fun.

Wait what. Um....I don't think they would have based his gender off that. :stansuprised: At least I hope they are not deliberately trying to make homosexuals in a child friendly Disney game.
What so Harvest Moon DS cute can't have the best friend system in the English version since I guess it is KINDA suggestive but we can have suggested shonen-ai in Kingdom Hearts? *Munches on gaming industry.*
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 23, 2008 08:30 PM (GMT)
Well actually, Disney's not as innocent as people think they are, and I know for a fact that Square Enix is amazing. Marly wasn't made a male just because of that, I don't know why they changed their mind, maybe to keep the Organization full of males, The ratio of male to female in that gam is astounding if you don't think of it as yaoi potential.
Xor - December 23, 2008 09:55 PM (GMT)
Suggested Shonen-Ai... makes me remember a game that I have played recently known as Tales of Symphonia: Knight of Ratatosk. Here's a link to the suggestive scenes, and I did not make this video:http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=nKthQfOPxss
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 23, 2008 10:25 PM (GMT)
Oh, you want 'suggested' shonen-ai?
Take a look at this wonderful amazingness. CANON Shonen-ai.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWbcGTgTlS4
The creators support that pairing.
Xor - December 23, 2008 11:07 PM (GMT)
... what? That... really happened in a game?
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 23, 2008 11:15 PM (GMT)
Oh yes it did! I shall forever love it.
It's one of a bunch of wedding choices you an do at the end, if your chosen love has the highest friendship with you.
It actually reminded me of Okage's friendship bonuses. And of course the Digimon and Pokemon friendship bonuses too.
Endrance is the only male you can marry, however. He's desperately in love with Haseo, poetic and completely devoted.
Rosalyne - December 24, 2008 05:46 AM (GMT)
lololololol. That video made me laugh really hard.
Sense I'm way too lazy to read all these posts, I'll just refer to Boogies up above about the game came as a bonus.
I got it online when it came out. it was like $75.00+shipping&handling. So you basically payed for 2 games, sorta.
Xor - December 24, 2008 05:53 AM (GMT)
I don't understand the two games in one logic. :stansuprised:
DracoShadow - December 24, 2008 05:56 AM (GMT)
OOOoooooOOO!! I just bought the new Kingdom Hearts game!! It's really fun so far!! I like it... :stantounge:
By the way.....http://www.square-enix.co.jp/kingdom/days/
I'm getting that game when it comes out...
Xion is on the character list...
By the way, if you remember, Xenort (Sp?) had a Heartless, too. Kingdom Hearts1 final boss. Remember? So Xion isn't the only one.
And the music for that website is pretty, so listen to it! :stanmad: It's sad though... :stanstare:
Rosalyne - December 24, 2008 06:04 AM (GMT)
Isn't that Roxas Theme song?
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 24, 2008 06:12 AM (GMT)
Even though it confuses me to no end and my psychology lesson about Nobodies was while on the phone and therefore lost in two people's heads forever...I'm still getting Days too.
Sweetsuzie - December 24, 2008 06:35 AM (GMT)
Yep I cant wait for that game. I think I will like Xion ( know I said this before but) I just love I could cosplay as her without changing my hair and or hair color.
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 24, 2008 06:36 AM (GMT)
Mrrr, I want to do the versus the most. Just so I can apparently run around as Marluxia.
Rosalyne - December 24, 2008 06:51 AM (GMT)
KH needs more Zexion. They seemed to have stuck him in a box, and won't let him out.
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 24, 2008 07:25 AM (GMT)
DracoShadow - December 24, 2008 05:57 PM (GMT)
Zexion!! I need more of him!! I need to hurry up and play my new game faster so I can hear his smexy voice!! :stantounge:
I dunno, is that Roxas's theme? All I know is that it's very pretty. :stansmile:
I also want to play as Marluxia. Fear flower power and pretty pink scythes!!!! :stantounge: :stanmad:
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 24, 2008 06:50 PM (GMT)
I love those two the most. Marluxia and Zexion. Pretty and emo. :stanlove: The death by PINK is a nice touch too.

Which one was that again......It is hard to memorize names when I can't remember how to spell or pronounce them.
Dang it KT. Don't make me start playing .Hack! (I only have the first two of the normal dot hack games. Not GU. )
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 24, 2008 07:22 PM (GMT)
Zexion, the Cloaked Schemer. This one. http://kh2.ffsky.cn/pic/char/13/zexion02.jpg
Yesss, you must! It is amazing~!
Rosalyne - December 24, 2008 08:40 PM (GMT)
I love that picture! Zexion is so sexy! (or at least to me he is! Don't tell my boyfriend though!)
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 24, 2008 09:20 PM (GMT)
YamiLover13 - December 24, 2008 11:09 PM (GMT)
Oh THAT guy. One of the ones that died in Chain of Memories? (Love how they said you didn't really need to play Chain of Memories to understand the second game. Bull crude. Only reason I played that game was because I won it at Dave and Busters when they actually gave out good prizes. ) He really needs a haircut. :stansuprised: Oh well. At least it is a style. Unlike Riku who just has super long bangs that cover both of his eyes.
I can't play any other games. I still have a tone to play as it is. I haven't even had a chance to play the Harvest Moon game on the Wii since I bought it several months ago. :stansad:
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 25, 2008 12:09 AM (GMT)
I bought NiGHTS for the Wii about a year ago and have yet to play it. *sigh*
Zexion's emo haircut is cute. Emos are generally cute.
Yeah, a friend made me play KHII without having ever heard of CoM, and all I was doing was staring, confused, wondering who the hell Roxas was.
We played until 3 am, and some great quotes came out of that sleep-deprived state.
I'm one of the people who actually thought up lifting Axel's cloak when he's frozen and that he'd have heart boxers, but I never said anything to anyone apart from my friend,
so I don't get credit, but it's still nice to know other people think like that.
DracoShadow - December 25, 2008 02:26 AM (GMT)
I love Zexion's hair!! :stansuprised: I hope we get to see more of him in the new Kingdom Hearts game...
You really do need to play CoM before you play KH2...
And for those of you who already bought the CoM remake, how much did ya pay for it? $30? I paid $20 at a sale at Target! OH YEAH!!! :stantounge:
So, you if you havn't bought it yet, you might want to check Target. I don't know if they have the same sale where you live, but you might get lucky. :stantounge:
Kaydryn Tenelmacher - December 25, 2008 02:53 AM (GMT)
I just got it a few minutes ago for a Christmas present. I love the platinum silver shine and the three postcards :stanlove: One of those postcards makes it obvious why they waited so long to release it here.
