• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!

i looked at stat maxing and saw someone saying there's a soft cap (idk what that means) of about 160-180, and i thought i was probably at like 120 or something

so i checked and i had around or under 80 in all those stats

currently farming twilight crystals in port royal, i'm up to 90 so only another 70-80 to go!

I wish Yozora's character design was different. I understand that this is a "me" problem, but I have a hard time telling him apart from Riku. I can only see the differences between them whenever the camera zooms in on Yozora's face. Otherwise, he looks like Riku in different clothes imo.

He bounces between looking almost exactly like Riku and then a younger, silver haired Noctis.

It's not the most inspired or distinctive design, aside from the heterochromia iridis.

He's almost a J-RPG cliche in this day and age, and it's thanks to the fact he keeps mimicing one of the most iconic, unrealized titles from Square-Enix. I don't see it as a good fit for this guy at all. I can't take him or his attitude seriously.

And if anyone truly believes Versus XIII's original intended plot is going to somehow be realized in any meaningful way through Kingdom Hearts/Verum Rex, then I direct you to the censorship of Eraqus' death, Aqua's choke at the hands of Terra-nort, the undead pirates in Port Royal, and the source material of Disney in general.

At best this will be a hack-job Versus XIII, where when we finally get to play the Insomnia Invasion scenario, it'll be Captain Hook invading Yozora's castle with his Pirate Ship, sending a bunch of heartless pirates and Gigas toys to riot in the streets while Not!Ignis and Not!Ardyn help you out.

There won't be a city where Yozora and his mafia-esque family rule with the protection of a Goddess of Death, and Yozora gets his powers from witnessing the light of souls crossing over to the afterlife. And Yozora won't have to deal with rival families trying to rob him and his family of their crystal through assassination and murder, while simultaneously having to kill rival families to protect his own.

That's not Kingdom Hearts. At all. Looking at DDD, even the mature themes from The World Ends with You were toned down.

So this belief of Versus XIII resurrecting in Kingdom Hearts is so baffling to me. It's nothing but aesthetics.

Really though, no obviously Versus XIII isn't gonna be realized through this. I think it's just fun allusions to Nomura's ex-project rather than him like 'losing it' or actually being 'salty' or whatever the current narrative amongst fans is.
See, though, those narratives are arguably more parsimonious given the bizarre things we know about VersusXIII's development hell. He was planning to turn it into a musical as late in the game as 2012! I'm convinced the man is nuts. He got lead poisoning from all the zippers back in the day or something.

I’m doing it for the super bosses which are Sora only so i think that’s the best option

Also buying items in bulk to synth materials gifts you post cards which give stat items too occasionally

I was focusing on defence first since I figured super bosses can’t hurt me as much if I’m buff but magic is also good so you can thundaga everything while farming crystals

I will see the end of the dlc by my own effort eventually :sadpanda:
