1440p 50’s unlocked fps ehhh, i’ll hold out for a pc version for a bit then. 

I mean, it's honestly better than I was expecting in many ways! The 0.2 game that came with the 2.8 HD collection was fucking AWFUL. The framerate was insanely low and the frame pacing was abysmal.


Now the frame pacing is upgraded to "pretty fuckin' bad" and the frame rate is better than average!

 

Would still love a PC version. The game has some real beautiful stuff going on, but the dithering on this base PS4 version is fucking killing me. The frame pacing hurts my soul, but doesn't quite skullfuck it like 0.2 did.

High 8's and low 9's seem pretty good to me.  I've gotten to the point where I totally disregard Polygon.  I've never had a publication that I generally disagree with 100%

Polygon seems perpetually Hell bent on being the avant garde contrarian of all things gaming media. Its screams lame staff meetings where words like "Bold", "Fierce", and "Edgy" get tossed about without irony.

Resetera is bemoaning that it’s Ni No Kuni 2 levels of easy so I might wait for the PC version and a mod to make it more challenging. 

 

I can see that being a turn off for some. Me personally, as long as the game play is really fun then I don’t mind it not being a super challenge.

Yeah KH3 isn’t the most difficult game, at least not up to this point. But the combat is fun and I love the specials. Those are great to trigger and just wreck enemies. Graphics look beautiful as well.

 

My only gripe is the map. It’s not that helpful.

Does the game ever become challenging @Xbob42 or I can expect to have it pretty easy all the way until the end? That’s fine if it stays easy cause I’m really enjoying the combat and characters. I was just curious. I’m playing on normal btw.

From what I’ve read it’s super easy all the way through even on hard.

This does seem to be the case, which is a little disappointing to me. You've got a huge arsenal and it seems like everything is always effective. I'm on Proud and haven't even been slightly challenged yet. Hoping for a Critical mode soon, cause I want to push this combat to its limits.

I bought the game, I plan on spending time with it this coming week. I work on weekends, so the time I have after work has been playing the Anthem demo. Once it is over it will be KH3 time.

What do you think of the game thus far @stepee?

 

I already told you, but I’m enjoying it! Really wish it wasn’t this unlocked 50’s-60 shit on the X but at least the combat feels better than if it was a straight 30 (my God the frame pacing is unplayable in the 30 mode) but even at 1400p the game is gorgeous. It’s fun so far, I like that it’s easy actually, just feels kind of light and breezy but fun.

Started the game tonight, I'm still in Olympus. Having fun so far, game is gorgeous, I feel like I'm right in a Disney movie. Feels pretty good to be playing, since it's been years since I last played KH.

I remember that same feeling of being in Disney movies when I played the first game. 

 

This game definitely looks a lot closer to the source material, thanks to modern hardware and the Unreal Engine. 

 

Cut scenes are the same corny, over acted stuff the franchise has always had. Yet I am still getting sucked in like I did in the first and second games.

Ok so I finally got the game. 😂😂😂 WTF is this beginning. First I get what feels like the end credits of the game with footage of what I think is KH2? That goes on for like 10 minutes. Followed by some weird recap of the story with two guys playing chess. Nothing that they say resembles anything from the recap videos I watched. Now it’s some kind of KH music video? I’ve been watching absolute nonsense with what feels like no useful information for like 20 minutes. Can I just play the game please? Why are the Japanese so weird?

Don't worry you get 10 minute cut-scenes all the time. Its great....

The game’s design feels so dated. From the awkward controls and physics, to the weird pacing of conversations. The Disney characters also sound ... wrong. They sound like somebody acting like a voice actor trying to do the voice of iconic characters. 

 

The gummi ship feels awful and boring. 

 

I wish I could turn off the Disney Ride powers. 

 

The game looks nice visually. I am just not loving it like I did KH and KH2. Those reviews from major outlets were extremely generous with their scores, like they were afraid to hurt somebody’s feelings.

Yes im aware. But usually when there’s a cut scene at the beginning of a game, it contains useful information to the story.

As someone who had just played or watched every game in the series, that weird recap low quality AMV at the beginning also confused the shit out of me. Especially since the actual intro has them speaking for real.

 

It's like they were like "Yeah Kingdom Hearts has existed for a while and we don't really know what to do with that! Enjoy!"

If you've played KH before, you wouldn't be surprised. :p

I mean I’m absolutely in love with the combat and the Disney stuff. It’s just I guess I never really believed it could be as bat shit insane as everyone said 😂

I can follow and even like the KH story at this point, but that video wasn't the story, it was just a bunch of random video clips strung together like something a kid would've done on Youtube 12 years ago. Usually those types of videos at the start of a KH title are clips from the game you're currently playing, if not outright telling a story, at least showing some intriguing scenes and action. Not just nonsense.

I didn't realize FF characters weren't in KH3. News to me. :shock:

 

Then again, it doesn't really need it. The Disney worlds and characters were the main draw for me.

Just finished the Toy Story world. So far all three worlds have been great. I don’t like the ship that you have to use to travel though. I could do without that.

This Gummi ship is a goddamn legend compared to the shit in the past. Mandatory gummi missions. Ugh. Here you can just skip the missions, do them, photograph constellations, find treasure, explore, etc. It's a huge step forward in the gameplay and player choice department, even if it's still pretty meh overall.
