| Well if anyone remembers the anticipated arrival of KHII topics, this should rekindle some fun memories.
As a few of us know, KH III is predicted to be complete by 2011, but KHII Final Mix should come out a lot sooner, and in English, not solely Japanese like the first Final Mix.
If you've seen KHInsider over the past few months, you probably noticed that included with Final Mix will be a remake of KH: Chain of Memories for the PS2. So does anyone here have any potentially exclusive info as to the release dates or gameplay?
Keep in mind, some of us haven't seen too much, so any info should be fair game.

| 2011.... goddammit.
I can't wait to play CoM, though. I'm definitely gonna download... errr... legally buy Final Mix.

| I actually went to KHInsider just recently, and there have been a lot of updates since I last saw. It would be a pain of me to drag all the images and info that's already posted on their main page. So I'll just give you guys a link.

|I can give you all the info you want on the gameplay, seeing as how I have played it. Although since its all in japanese I havent played much of it. I have spent most of my time playing the KH2 side of the game.|

|I work at a gamestop and so far there is no announcements of localizations, but there has been heavy implications. I've heard that they are currently translating re:CoM but nothing is official so nothing is set in stone.|
|Posted by: Omega2042 May 9 2007, 08:30 AM|
| I think the common feeling it that it wont have an english release, but not much else you can do but hope.
Anyway, I just beat KH2:FM+. Not CoM, but KH2. Man, its good. I can safely say that Sephiroth is a weakling now. I can think of 13 bosses off the top of my head that are harder. Why 13? Simple, its the 13 orginization members of course!
Currently I have only fought Larxene and Axel's final cut version, but damn man, I died fast. Larxene killed me before I could even attack her. Stupid lightning bolts... Axel had 16 bars of health. Yes, 16. Also, your health is draining while you fight him. Oh yeah, big fun.
I was only level 62, but I have beaten Sephiroth at that level. Anyway, the additions to the game were nice and it played just as well as the first. They added a lot of new scenes, too bad I couldnt understand them at all.
All in all if it doesnt make a US showing, KH fans should check it out. Now I am off to start a Critical game!
|Posted by: Omega2042 May 13 2007, 09:10 AM|
| I still hold that there are only 13 bosses harder than Sephiroth. While one of the Orginization members is rather weak, there is another boss that I can only guess they put in just to taunt people...
Anyway, getting off of that topic, I started my critical game. My first reaction was: MY HEALTH BAR IS SO SMALL. My second one was: I have 50 AP.
I think that sums it up pretty well. You start with 20 HP and a lot of skills. The skills you start with are: Reaction Up, Finisher Plus, Draw, Luck Up, Luck up, MP Hastera, Zero EXP. If you are wondering what the last one does, it keeps you from gaining EXP so you can have a level 1 game.
So as you can see, they give you a decent amount of stuff to start with. Currently this game has been easier than Proud. Sure I dont have much health, but things just dont seem to hurt much yet. It is true that I havent made it very far yet, about to go to Land of Dragons for the first time, but I expected to die at least once.
The truth is, that Finisher Plus is just too good to give someone at the start. Being able to pull off two finishers from the start is just too good. Add in the Reaction Up and you kill bosses rather fast. Axel went down like a chump thanks to just those two abilities. He never even got a chance to fight back.
I mean yes I have gotten back into my KH mode of playing, but it didnt take me long to get back into it in Proud either. It just seems like they toned down how much damage things do as well. I dont know, maybe the first world will kill me off, but right now I am just not feeling as stressed out as I thought I would be. I am not even playing that defensivly. I am charging in blindly and killing things without a problem.
Finally, I dont know how many of you will care about this, but I am willing to record the fights with some orginization members if you guys want. I dont know how many of you will get to play this game, so I figured I could at least show you what they can all do.

| Before I post this, I just have to wonder why no one ever seems to post in this area at all. Really, why is that? If you want to ignore my whole post, then please at least answer this question.
Anyway, its been a long time so I can post again without it being too bad...As an update, I have beaten critical, I did awhile ago actually, and I am currently working on beating all those orginization members.
Its funny this time around, I have really only fought about three. Those being: Saix, Larxene and Roxas. Yeah, two of my three most hated members in there. Oh in case I didnt mention this yet, I find Larxene, Roxas and Xemnas to be the hardest ones to fight. As for the ones I have beaten, well just two. Saix and Roxas.
Thats right, I managed to beat Roxas. Level 78 on critical. It was close at the end, but I won off of the really nice reaction command you get while fighting him. When I record my re-match with him I will try to pull it off so you guys can all see what it is.
As for Saix...well, hes sort of become my punching bag. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPX7sefbUD4 go check it out if you want. Its just me beating him up. He barely touched me in that whole fight too. I havent fought him since that fight and I am not ten levels higher, so the next time would be even worse.
I am starting to figure all these guys out, except Xemnas who I just dont want to fight...OK, since I know someone will ask why he is hard since he was so easy to beat as the final boss, first go look at that Saix video. You will notice his health bar, that is not uncommon to see on all of these guys. Apart from that, he has just become incredibly insane. You have to fight both his forms back to back, die anywhere and you start all over again. His second form fights nothing like how he did as the final boss. Its like fighting a whole new boss. And let me tell you, there is a reason why this version isnt the final boss...
I have yet to even bother trying to fight the knight so far. Yes, I know his name and all that crap, I just like calling him the knight so dont bother saying anything about that. I figure I will wait until I beat all the data fights and mushrooms before trying to fight him.
Speaking of the mushrooms, I only have three of them left. 9, 10 and 12. The 13th doesnt count really. I hate 8. 8 needs to go burn in hell. It took me forever to beat him. I had like 35 of the materials you get for getting a high, but not beating, score against it. Yes, that damn long. I will admit luck was a decent factor in it, so you might get lucky and beat it in a few minutes...
As a whole though, most of them arent really all that hard. There is just a trick you have to learn and outside of that its really easy.
I plan on uploading fights against all of them at some point, assuming I can ever get a clean win off against them all, but I really dont care what order I beat them in, wouldnt mind any suggestions or anything. OK, thats all I wanted to say about this. I guess I should go back to Odin Sphere and leveling up on Disgaea soon...
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 7 2007, 09:10 AM|
| I know people care about this, I have talked to you about it...
Anyway, just giving a quick update: Only Xemnas remains. Also I got a perfect on Axel and Roxas. Fitting isnt it?
|Posted by: Ds14 Jun 7 2007, 04:36 PM|
| Xemnas was a bitch from what I remember. (As in a weak and boring fight)
The dude with the lance in the PotC level was the hardest, imo.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 7 2007, 07:20 PM|
| On critical fighting the data version, fear Xemnas. Unless you know how to block pretty much everything he throw at you, the fight will be really quick. Which is too bad seeing as how you have to fight his two forms back and back and the first one really cant kill you.
He certainly is harder than Sephiroth.
Funny you should mention Xaldin. He kept killing me, then I figured out how to fight him and hes dead now. Much easier when you know how to dodge his attacks and counter.
|Posted by: FinalRagnarok Jun 7 2007, 11:46 PM|
| I'd say the most anticipated bouts are:
Roxas (didn't see that one coming...)
all the others from CoM that we haven't got to face in a real fight (Vexen, Lexaeus, Zexion, Larxene, and Marluxia)
but I'm interested in seeing you own Xaldin since i never did that well against him.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 8 2007, 12:01 AM|
| Funny how the world works, minutes after I posted how hard Xemnas was, I beat him. So now I have a silver crown. Yay for having 2/3 requirements for the secret movie done!
Anyway, I am feeling bored/random so I think I will rate stuff based on how hard I think they are. So, starting with the lowest and working our way down. Keep that in mind, 1 is the easiest!
1) Xemnas first form.
12) Room before all the members...
16) Xemnas second form
I could explain why I put them in that order, but I dont want to rant that much. So unless someone asks for me to explain I wont. Also I should add thats how it was when I fought them. I am sure it would change if I played against some of them more, but I am just hunting them for items right now, so I only fight a few of them.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 10 2007, 07:38 PM|
| Got some of them done last night.
I am starting to think I should record a new fight for Roxas and Lexaeus. The Roxas one just wasnt very clean and the other I sort of nuked him.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 11 2007, 09:34 AM|
| And if those were not enough, here are some more! I would suggest watching them in this order, but not like I can force you...
Why I dont use Ultima: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xKI8xSIWso
Lexaeus No Damage/Limit/Drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7SL1qXj_Vc
Well, there you go. Every fight you wanted to see is all nice and done now. Anyone else got anything they want to see?
|Posted by: FinalRagnarok Jun 12 2007, 12:59 AM|
|These vids were awesome, I hope you do some more.|
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 14 2007, 12:34 PM|
| Here are some more. All of them are the XIII Mushrooms.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 18 2007, 03:45 AM|
| OK, this video is a bit freaky. There is only one other video in which he dies anywhere close to as fast. In that one he died in 46 seconds.
In mine he dies in 26 seconds. Enjoy the horrible descrution I cause.
|Posted by: Ds14 Jun 18 2007, 04:20 AM|
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 18 2007, 04:34 AM|
| So I had to kill someone that fast in order to get a comment...I did kill Vexen pretty quick you know...
Now to go max out my stats and see what happens when I manage to pull that off.
|Posted by: FinalRagnarok Jun 18 2007, 04:16 PM|
|is annihilation even the right word for it? because what happened to lexaeus is so much more than just simple annihilation. Not even total and complete obliteration comes close to saying what happened to poor lexaeus|
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 19 2007, 07:57 AM|
| Seems people liked the last one, so I did it to Larxene.
She doesnt seem as strong anymore huh?
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 22 2007, 03:35 AM|
| For those that have been out of the loop on this, my Lexaeus annihilation caused great anger towards me from the group of KH2 fans over at GameFAQs. It seems I got too close to being as good as their hero, so I had to be stopped. So I was called all sorts of things, said all I did was copy someone's strategy of using Fire while in Final Form. Of course that didnt stop me from making more of these things:
Now for this last one, I made it for all the people who said I really suck at this game and cant fight using my own strategies. So I decided to do something I havent even heard of anyone suggesting:
Saix version 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3d2oXphpXM
Look, its even faster.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jun 27 2007, 11:20 PM|
| Two more of 'em:
A Lexaeus fight I did just for fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xldA_aswd1c
And me breaking Saix with no hope of recovery: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeVirqBy_z0
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jul 10 2007, 12:11 AM|
| Look, another one. This time its a mystery as to who is it though!
|Posted by: Kazuma Jul 10 2007, 02:02 AM|
| The speed of these fights make me hot in the pants.
What was that at the end? Looks like whoever that was (forgot how to spell the name and is too lazy to go back and look) tried to teleport there and still ended up getting hit by you. hah
Well, while my mind is on it, what all is needed to put up these videos?Anybody?
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jul 10 2007, 02:45 AM|
| Well, I stopped my combo for no real reason there. Normally I would just go into the finisher which would have killed him, but I didnt for some unexplainable reason. It did lead into a funny finish though.
As for how I do it. I have a USB capture device and a VCR. There is lag between the recording and the PS2, so I cant just hook it up that way. If I had a computer that could do it that way it would work better. Actually this comp might be able to, I am just being lazy with seeing if it can.
So basically I just record it on the VCR then record it to the comp.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jul 12 2007, 11:29 PM|
| Time for another one! This times its poor Roxas who gets a taste of the whooping stick.
|Posted by: Omega2042 Jul 24 2007, 08:02 AM|
| Two more
|Posted by: Kazuma Jul 30 2007, 02:56 AM|
| Second one, near the end, was real fun to watch.
Oh yeah...I don't seem to have a working VCR, what other ways are there to get videos up?
