Movie day

We got a huge delivery last week from Nintendo for Child’s Play. Kiko snapped some pictures once we had everything unboxed.

We’ll be sending these out to the hospitals right away.

I don’t know if this video made the rounds on news sites and I just missed it but I just found this trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix.

Kingdom Hearts 2 is probably my favorite game of all time. With all the side quests and mini games and secret shit, I probably sunk more time into KH than I do most FF games. KH 2:Final Mix is a Japanese release of the game that contains all the extra shit they added to the US version. If that was all it did that would be fine but it also includes a full remake of Chain of Memories.

Now I’ll forgive you if you never played about Chain of Memories. It was a KH game for the GBA. The cool thing about it was that they introduced a really awesome card battle system. Everything from regular attacks with your Key Blade to magic and summons was based on playing cards. Playing the right cards in the right order could even earn you combos. I’m a sucker for card based battle and combining it with KH was almost too much to take. In the trailer for KH:Final Mix you’ll see a big chuck of footage that shows Sora drawing on a deck of cards, that’s Chain of Memories. Apparently they have completely remade the entire game in 3D! I’ve also read a couple reports on the game that seem to say you can use the chain of Memories card battle system to play back through the original KH:2 storyline. I’m not sure even I’m crazy enough to try that but it’s a cool feature. Honestly I’d buy it just for the Chain of Memories content.

The problem is that I haven’t seen anything saying the game is coming to the US. I don’t know if it just hasn’t been announced yet or if Square isn’t planning on bringing it over. If anyone knows more about this title and the chances of seeing it in the US, I’d love to hear from you.

Speaking of YouTube, this is a pretty cool fan made video. They took our Armadeaddon storyline and set the entire thing to music. Some of the cuts are sort of quick but overall I think it’s pretty classy.

Also I updated Gabeart recently with a few new sketches if you like that sort of thing.
