Sigh. Why does Kingdom Hearts have to do this to me?

I played the first game, and while I was interested in the overall story of the game and wanted to see everyone nice and safe and back where they belonged, the endless tedium that was the Disney worlds (after the initial nostalgia wore off) kept me from really caring that much about playing it or enjoying the game to the extent of anticipating a sequel. Then they stuck that "Another Side, Another Story" vid onto the end. And I was intrigued. Then they bust out Deep Dive, and I suddenly really, really wanted the next game. I mean, it's people in cloaks and rain and mysterious phrases and is that Riku? And OMG! Mickey! By the time the second game actually came around, I was so into it, I'd was even avoiding "spoiling" the new character designs. (Seriously, what was wrong with me?)

And then I played the game...and once more those damn Disney worlds that have nothing to do with anything yet take hours and hours of time to pass killed my enthusiasm. And then there was the disappointment at said cloaked figures getting almost no developement. Still, the ending was awesome and the secret ending even more so. (Knights! And Fields of Keyblades! Ooo!) But, no, I was going to stay strong and not care and just find out what happens after the game was released. ...And then the second Final Mix roles around and we get this new video and...and...and gah! It looks so good! Must. play. now.

And I know I'm just going to wind up being every bit as disappointed with KH3/whatever as I was with 2. (And odds are 3 won't even have playable Riku--squee--to make up for it.) But dammit, they've hooked me again!

Icon dump of all the random icons that I've made for myself and that aren't posted elsewhere. This is so, on the off chance that anyone chances to see one of them and wants it, they may feel free to snag.

Cause, you know, people can be weird about icons. )

Well, today I beat Kingdom Hearts II. Spoilerifc thoughts follow...

We'll go together. )

I have a problem with spoilers. That is to say, I have a very difficult time resisting them. For the most part, I actually enjoy them in regard to tv shows and movies, but as far as books and games go, I've found I really do enjoy them more when I'm surprised. I guess I like mini-promo spoilers for everthing. Like I'd have no problem reading the US book jacket synopsis from HP 6 if they'd released it early and can't fathom why didn't. That'd have made me happy and sated my appetite. Now with games it stands to reason that once they're released in Japan, you can find out every itty-bitty detail of the plot. For me, this isn't good. Too tempting. However, and this gives me hope for my solidarity against spoilers when xeno 3 comes out, I am happy to say I have avoided nearly all spoilers in relation to Kingdom Hearts 2. And now that there's a release date and I've preorder my copy and no longer have the indefinate wait urging me go ahead and find out everything there is to know, I'm giving myself a round of applause for having made it. Go me.

Now, I originally had planned to spoil myself for kh2. I'd only actually enjoyed the beginning and ending parts of the first game, but deep dive was awesome and further peaked my interest. So, I cared enough to want to know what happens (I'll admit it. I'm one of those Riku fangirls. A non-spazzy one, though...), but not enough to care about ruining the game's expirience. However, as the Jap. release date neared, I found myself getting more excited about the game and less inclined to want spoilers. I didn't dl the latest trailers, and once the game was released, I only downloaded the opening once I was certain it was only a recap. And I only skimmed through a mini disscussion of the ending to find out, yes, if Riku was alive and well and good or if he had perished at the hand of the hero or sacrified himself to save the goodies. That done, I avoided plot info like the plague. I saved the links to kh2 icons, refusing to click on them for fear they might reveal, yes, Riku, who since they never released an image of him, I decided I'd go along w/ it and just let the game relveal as it would. See? How good was I? I'm so proud of myself. I deserve a cookie!
