can't wait

Edited by zolloz89

Mine just came in the mail. Adding to the stack of shit I already have to play.

Posted by Stealthmaster86

Just waiting for that email saying that it's on its way. I hope I can at least beat final mix before I get GTAV.

KH endurance run

Posted by The_Ruiner

Only game in this series worth playing...

Edited by yevinorion

This makes me feel all warm and tingly inside.

Posted by MEATBALL

I know we're not supposed to utter the words Endurance Run, but man, I could totally go for a Vinny, Jeff & Brad ER of this.

Posted by Parsnip

Couldn't care less about the game, just the music.

Posted by SenorMartinez

I remember really liking the first game, though I didn't play the others.

That said, I think it's hilarious that the term HD Remix is being kept alive.

Stuck somewhere between wanting to play this because of the amount of nostalgia I have for the first game and never wanting to play this because I was eight years old when I played the first game and there is no way I am going to enjoy it even a fraction as much as I did then.

You might understand it this time!

the first time I played it I could never find that damn gummi piece need to fly to other worlds.

I remember thinking it was really, really awesome that they would shout the names of their spells while casting it.

A different time I suppose.

@koolaid: HADOKEN!

Anyway even though my taste for KH has waned through the years due to the growing pretension in the series, that first game (and 2) is/are still alright, especially if they have cleaned up the little problems in the game too. I'd probably get this if I had a PS3.

If nothing else I am very excited to play Kingdom Hearts Final Mix which has never come out here until now.

That would be the true meaning of Endurance Run, as in how long can they take Kingdom Hearts before going insane.

I'm real interested to go back and see how the game is ten years later. Loved it when it came out. I am a little apprehensive that it's not as good as I remember.

To be honest, I'd be more interested to play through 2 again.

WHEN YOU WALK AWAY

Posted by MrMazz

Part of me wants this just so I can play Re:Chain of Memories sinc eChian of Memories was my fav KH game but ah I think I'll wait a bit.

Posted by Aegon

KH music is so good.

Kingdom Shoemaker Part 1. The impossible series featuring Brad & Vinny.

Seriously looks almost identical to the original, barring the widescreen and higher resolution. I mean, at the time the graphics were close to mind-blowing but it looks pretty dated at this point. Could've used more of an update.

So noooooooo thanks. I liked the first game when I was 14 and then the series went straight up its own butt right after. It just doesn't do anything for me from a Disney or a Final Fantasy standpoint, and the story has become what 1UP calls (called?) the most inside of inside baseball. It's ridiculous.

Remiiiiiiix!

Man, those edges are really fucking jaggy. Expected more HD-ness.

Nah, I can live without it. After KHII, I tapped out on the series. Lightning Returns and FFXV are all I'm looking forward to from Square.

Yep, it's time. Again.

Posted by LikeaSsur

Too bad they didn't include 2. That's the game you want to play.

?!? What? 2 is a good game but I think 1 is still better... Man, I beat 2 so many times...

Posted by YummyTreeSap

If I've never played Kingdom Hearts and therefore have no nostalgia at all for the series, and also don't really give any shits about Disney IP being in a game, is it still something I should play?

I played KH for the first time when I was 23-ish. I turn 34 next month, and the first Kingdom Hearts is still one of my favorite games. I know three other people who have played the game, and they are all within my age range. They all really liked it as well.

I suppose that means that there would be nostalgia for me, but I didn't play the game as an eight year old if that makes any difference to you. Granted, games have moved on in some ways since the game was released, and I imagine some parts of it will feel dated.

Regardless, I recommend the game to anyone who isn't turned off by Disney or RPG games.

I would pay (even more) to watch GB do anything with a Kingdom Hearts game.

Better in what way, because I'm willing to bet nostalgia is clouding your judgement.

Posted by dangerousdave

Is there a good story as to why every Kingdom Hearts game has some bananas title? Can that be traced to one crazy person at Square?

Posted by Butano

Never owned a PS2 and was always bummed that I couldn't play KH, so I'm definitely looking forward to this!

Hahaha, indeed, it could be glorious. It would have to be Vinny playing to stand any chance, I'm pretty sure if Brad played it he'd emit just one long constant groan and I'd rather Jeff be calling everything stupid from the sidelines than while playing. :P

It'll never happen. One can dream, though.

Posted by oasisbeyond

They are so lazy and greedy to not put part 2... Cuz we all know they'll make another one, prob this gen or on ps4. Games today are like the dvd / blu ray industry, a zillion versions of the same crap.

Posted by Tober

Looking forward to getting this. This is probably my favorite game series ever. Satisfying gameplay, awesome story that is complex and exciting to discover more about, oh.. and production value is through the roof.

Posted by manbot47

This series use to be a guilty pleasure of mine. Now i just feel guilty for ever deriving pleasure from it.

Edited by Dark_Lord_Spam

Disappointing that 358/2 Days is just a cutscene collection, since that's the only one of these I've never played (well, I beat Chain of Memories on GBA and petered out halfway through Re: CoM). Still, I'll probably pick this up since the original is such a fucking delight. And I've only beaten it three times!
