Default Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 ReMIX - 0.5 left to go

It's been out for a few days so time to create a proper discussion thread for playthroughs.

...is anyone here actually playing it at the moment or are people too busy with Dragon Age or whatever?

I started II on Critical Mode for the first time to get those difficulty trophies (which fortunately do stack this time so everything's doable in one playthrough). I like how Critical gives you a bunch of extra abilities and tons of AP. I like that type of balancing more than just "every enemy is just ridiculously OP and takes forever to kill".

Still in Twilight Town with Roxas though.

The re-recorded music is once again a welcome bonus. Hope my HD ReMIX soundtrack gets here soon.

Okay, so I just watched re:coded and it's definitely put together better than 358/2 Days. Feels more coherent, includes battle scenes (short as they may be), interludes narrated by Mickey and it also helps that the characters don't go eating frickin ice cream over 9000 times.

Also, two new scenes with relation to KHIII. One somewhere in the middle and a second secret ending.

On the other hand: Just like Days or the cutscenes in Re:CoM, it's all prerendered video. I sit fairly close to the tv and I see compression artifacts EVERYWHERE. Not very pretty. :p

Going into Drive Forms has a loading time of 2 - 3 seconds.

Square-Enix, pls.

what does the lip sync look like for this? with 1.5 (the japanese one anyway), it was a weird mishmash of japanese and english lip sync depending on the scene. which was annoying, because the syncing was usually really good for kh games.

Haven't been paying much attention to the lip sync to be honest. But it didn't seem off, I think?

Anyway, I'm still at Beast's Castle. I did some power levelling because I'm to chicken to take on Critical Mode normally.
Good to see the trick where you leaving a world while in one of the Drive Forms will restore your Drive gauge is still intact.

Also, how the hell did Huey, Dewey and Louie and Scrooge get to Hollow Bastion?

My thread feels so abandoned.

Okay, so. Agrabah. Aladdin: "I like coming here. There's always something going on. The action, the people..."

-Camera shows Agrabah, literally devoid of any life-

KH3 *really* needs to step up its game in making these worlds feel ALIVE. There need to be people SOMEWHERE.

I was lazy to finish Re:CoM until I got KH2.5... I just finished it today so from tomorrow onwards, I'll play KH2 properly (I just got to the Sora segment).

Holy crap the intro to KH2 is TORTURE. I remembered it being very slow, but I had forgotten just how interminable it was. But I powered through it yesterday, so I can start the actual game now

Atlantica continues to be the least interesting world in the series

Aside from Deep Jungle, that was immensely tedious

Do love how much faster and fun the combat is in KH 2 though, and BBS's was even better

Just completed Critical Mode.

I haven't played KH2 since 07-08 and I started 2.5 on critical.

The load times during drives has gotten me hit with heartless angel once.
