@KratosMD oh don't get me wrong it's not a bad game just REALLY frustrating due to it's RNG Card system

like i said before it's OK if you have powerful cards it's GETTING the stupid Moogle room cards to actually buy new cards

@FullbringIchigo Speaking of Moogle Room cards, I just got one of those but should I use it this early on in the game (I'm on floor 2)? I did some research online and apparently getting rare cards from the decks becomes more likely when you've reached the later floors (7 and onwards). So it sounds like I should be saving them until later on in the game, right?

@KratosMD unless you desperate for good cards for you deck then you should save them BUT if you need to use them then use them

also i got to floor 4 and never had one, that's why i went and played the GBA version instead

@KratosMD My advice would be to use the early floors as the grind. Use cards that create rooms with many heartless. That way you can stock up on field cards, which become more important for the later floors, when the requirements become more specific/extensive.
I would save the rare field cards such as the moogle room and the premium room for later in the game (floor 8+).
The game is great but there are some insane difficulty spikes.

@FullbringIchigo @Fight_Teza_Fight Thanks for the advice guys. I'll just save up the Moogle Room cards (and other rare ones) to when I desperately need them. Right now the game feels pretty alright for me, it's not too difficult yet.

I just got done with the Olympus Coliseum level and the fights against Cloud/Hades were really intense. Like you really need to constantly use Chain attacks in order to even hit the bosses in this game. The gameplay is so much fun though, I honestly thought KH1's gameplay was too repetitive but CoM is like a completely different experience. The battle system reminds me heavily of Xenoblade Chronicles, which I absolutely adore so that's a huge plus.

Anyway, I did think of using the early floors as grinding areas since enemies don't respawn (and you need to reset the worlds when you leave) so I might as well get as much EXP as I can from the start. I've only used cards that spawn a lot of Heartless, so I'm glad to hear that I'm playing the game "correctly".

Ok so I've played through another world and I've learned more about CoM now.

First thing is that save rooms seem to always have a Kingdom Key card hidden in them. I've gone through a long period of time without finding any and then suddenly I found a level 9 Kingdom Key card in a save room while on floor 3. So I think a good strategy is to always use a save room card in a world not just to be able to establish a save area but also to get a free Kingdom Key card.

Second thing is that Roulette Room cards are really useful and a good way to get Moogle Room cards. I had the opportunity to get a total of three Moogle Room cards while in a Roulette Room, although I only managed to get one. It isn't that hard to time the cursor to stop at a certain card, but you obviously need some practice in order to get a feel for it. Regardless, I've now finished the third floor and I have two Moogle Room cards thus far. I also have four more Roulette Room cards, so technically I could go and grind for Moogle Room cards. I can easily imagine getting at least 5 Moogle Room cards from the Roulette rooms if I time them all well (you could also theoretically just save and restart if you fail too many times).

Third is that copying and pasting bosses from KH1 into a game like this with completely different battle mechanics was so stupid of the developers. I just fought the final boss of Wonder Land and it's basically only vulnerable to Key attacks in the air (and fire attacks that home in). Other than that most of your magic attacks as well as Summons are useless in this fight since they are all ground-based and the legs of the boss cannot be damaged. Moreover, it's SO annoying that performing 'Sleight' attacks is always random. You can't turn them off, and the reason why you want to turn them off is because they are a hindrance in this boss fight. The sleight attacks that I have are all ground-based so they can't even hurt the boss and you're basically wasting one card each time you perform a sleight attack. This is the issue of copying bosses and including them in a game with completely different mechanics. I seriously ran out of cards so many times because the boss had so much health and you lose a card each time you perform a chain attack. It's STUPID. Basically, remember to only equip Key cards as attacks for this boss fight.

Anyway, while I've been really enjoying the gameplay, the story hasn't really picked up the pace so far. I am however loving the cut-scenes with the Organisation members. I mean, none of these people are ever brought up in the first game but you see them all the time in pretty much every other Kingdom Hearts game, including the third one. Simply put, I'm really glad to finally be able to encounter them in a game and learn more about them. I really like them for some reason, lol.

I just finished floor 4 (Monstro in my case) in Chain of Memories and it's absolutely insane how difficult the bosses are in this game. I didn't have as much trouble with Monstro as with Wonder Land, but still. The fact that a lot of your attacks require you to be on the ground, and with Monstro's boss fight having a poison floor all around you with small platforms to stand on, it's just plain ridiculous. I might as well just spam attacks instead of trying to play strategically and jump on each platform because you constantly land on the poison.

I was also forced to use a Moogle Room card in this world since most of my cards were really weak at that point. So I bought pretty much all Attack card decks available and it was definitely worth it, I got a lot of strong attacks! Moreover, I decided to try out my earlier strategy of using a Roulette Room card and farming Moogle Room cards. I got a whopping 6 of them in just that room! Excluding the one I used earlier, I have 8 Moogle Room cards in total now, and three Roulette Room cards to boot. I honestly don't see the issue with getting Moogle Room cards anymore, it's really easy to get them once you have Roulette Rooms. I'm pretty much set for the rest of the game, lol.

With that aside, Kingdom Hearts 3 seems to be getting mostly positive reviews now and it's currently 88 on Metacritic. I honestly wasn't expecting 10/10s for this game since most reviewers have most likely not played through all the games in the series and therefore can't appreciate the third game as much as other ones. KH3 feels heavily reliant on your past experiences with the series, so playing it as your first KH game will most likely make the game less enjoyable due to your lack of attachment to the franchise.

Personally, I'm definitely never going to touch KH3 until I'm completely done with the 1.5, 2.5 and 2.8 collections. Which is too bad since I would've loved to play the game next week, it looks like so much fun based on the gameplay videos I've seen today. But I'll be patient, I mean most people have waited much longer for the third game than I have so I'm not going to complain, lol.

@KratosMD That's a good decision to wait. I'm not reading any of the reviews before I play the game to keep it fresh, but I do think a lot of lower scores will be from be people who haven't played the other games, or just payed KH2 years ago. You can honestly just discount those reviews from the offset. It's like someone reviewing Infinity War as their first Marvel movie and giving it a lower score because it was confusing to them or they didn't know the characters. Ludicrous stuff.

It's currently sitting at an 89 on both metacritic and opencritic. That makes it the best reviewed KH game and puts it 2 points over KH2- which is one of my favourite games of all time.
I thought it would score in the low to mid 80s, due to reviewers missing out on the plot.
The wait...might have been worth it?

So Square released some videos on Youtube for Kingdom Hearts III called Memory Archive and basically they explain the plot of the series so if KH3 is your first entry then it might be a good idea to watch them or even if your an old hand and just want to get reacquainted with it

On a different note does anyone think more worlds will be added to Kingdom Hearts 3 via DLC and if so what worlds would you like to see?

@FullbringIchigo Tron. No would complain if Legacy was again on the PS4. It would be freaking sick. It could also inspire a new good Tron game.

@kyleforrester87 yeah they give you what you need to know without the fluff

Just finished up Birth by Sleep. This is the point where things get convoluted. Can't blame anyone for being lost. It's crazy how much lore and back story this game adds. It's mad to think they put this on the PSP 4 years after KH2. It's by far the most fascinating game in the series- there are so many layers.

I only just realised that Castle Oblivion was the palace in the Land of Departures! It only took 9 years! It was never really revealed in CoM what Xemnas was looking for. I had always assumed it would be the Chamber of Awaking, but he was actually looking for his other 'friend' (Ven) as he's already got Aqua with him in the Chamber of Repose in KH2. No wonder he couldn't find him, as Terra himself wasn't given that knowledge, due to failing the mark of mastery.

Last night I finished Dream Drop Distance. It was a good game, got me set up for KH3. I will say this though, Inception is now a simple movie. By comparison, it just is.

@Jaz007 Yeah, I still don't know what to think about THAT twist.

At there's only a day left for KH3! I don't know what to do with myself for today.

I’m pretty hyped that this is out tomorrow - I’ve never been a huge fan of the games but it’s a magical series and I love certain aspects of it. I have alot of memories of getting the first for Christmas way back when Lord of the Rings was a huge deal and we were moving out of the house I was born in. Can’t wait to pick it up in February.
