Kingdom Hearts 3 at E3 2017!

It’s E3, and while there aren’t many games that we’re currently on the lookout for, there is one in particular that we’ve talked about before on the podcastKingdom Hearts 3. And lo, a trailer!

On the one hand, a trailer makes it feel like the game is coming along and can be expected sometime soon, since there weren’t any trailers at E3 in 2016 (previous videos had come from 2015). So while the development on this one has been a long time coming (Kingdom Hearts 2 came out in 2005… for the PS2), it might finally be getting close to seeing the light of day. The last rumors I saw placed it sometime in early 2018, which to be honest might be right around when I have time to play it!

On the other hand, this trailer doesn’t really show anything super exciting or new. Characters we’ve seen before, an updated Olympus, some updated combat moves and animation. But I guess I should say, these feel like backbone elements. The sorts of things that in theory should have been in place for a while at this point. The real work is in developing new worlds and new characters, drawing from more Disney and Final Fantasy sources. This didn’t show us any of those.

Even the previous trailers showed more new stuff, focusing especially on some of the new summons – which seem based on Disney rides. Seem cool. Basically Doomtrain:

Anyway… I don’t know. Is this actually a good sign? Is this game truly coming soon? The best news for us, really, was that it still has X-Box One listed as a console it’s coming out for. How about you – what caught your eye about Kingdom Hearts 3? Let us know!

David’s Best of 2015

It’s that time of year again – the best of the year reviews! This year we’re going to have three of them, so let’s get started 🙂

Holly and I at least missed a number of things this year, with all our Geek Babying and such, so there’s things that are missed that were perhaps awesome. There’s also some things that are more about them being good for us this year, or discovered this year, or what have you. It’s personal, it’s ours – it’s the best of 2015.

Let’s go!

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories as the Munchkin Video Game

I have been playing Kingdom Hearts 1.5 on Playstation 3 and recently started the game Chain of Memories which originally came out on the Gameboy Advanced. I never got to play Chain of Memories originally so it has been really interesting to play through it now. There are some aspects of the game that I am not a huge fan of, but the story is the tie-in between Kingdom Hearts 1 and Kingdom Hearts 2.

The element that is particularly intriguing (although not always well executed) are the use of cards. The cards are used to generate rooms and to make attacks. David actually points out that there are quite a few elements that are reminiscent of Munchkin and Munchkin Quest and in fact could serve as a great example of how to make a Munchkin Video Game.
