    Default Friendship Is Zippers. And Belts. Let's Play Kingdom Hearts


    Ah, Kingdom Hearts. Brainchild of Tetsuya Nomura, neverending font of zipper-related humour.

    Let's see what Wikipedia has to say:

    Quote Originally Posted by wikipedia
    Kingdom Hearts is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 video game console. The first game in the Kingdom Hearts series, it is the result of a collaboration between Square Enix and The Walt Disney Company. The game combines characters and settings from Disney animated features with those from Square's Final Fantasy series.
    So, Final Fantasy meets Disney? Must've been one hell of an (most likely stuck) elevator pitch...
    Surprisingly, the two franchises merge pretty well, though. The game is lots of fun, the plot, while a bit convoluted,
    is internally consistent, and the characters are true to source for the most part.

    Join me and our boards very own Domochevsky as we struggle through this epic Saga of friendship, magic, and a notable absence of ponies.

    What to expect:
    - Playing as a mage/defense combo, with offense forfeit.
    - A semi-skilled 99%* playthrough by me, with the occasional grind being done off-camera
    - Commentary by me (knows the games) and Domochevsky (doesn't know what he's going to go through, yet...)
    - A lot of benevolent bickering about the plot and characters
    - One to two updates per week
    - A whole lot of fun

    *99% because no way in hell are we going to beat that one boss, except if I feel particularly bored and masochistic somewhen down the line. Don't bet on it. Seriously. Screw that guy.

    Spoiler Policy:
    - Talking about the plot of the other games in the series is strictly verboten.
    - Talking about the plot of this game is OK for plot points we already covered, and OK if in spoiler tags for things to come, as long as this doesn't turn into an all-spoiler thread.
    - Talking about game mechanics is a-OK, once we get into the game proper. Just give us two or three episodes before you go all out.

    Since we're already streaming this to get Domo in on the fun, I'll post the url and times for the livestream here and via my twitter, if anyone wants to view it.
    We'll be editing some boring parts out in the final videos, if neccessary, so the straming sessions might differ in content from the final updates.

    As always, new episodes will be posted with videolinks to blip.tv and download links, both in the OP and in the regular thread.
    This time around, however, we're also hosting the stuff on our own site:

    http://lp.wildwestscifi.net

    We'll host our previous LPs there, as well as current ones and extra stuff we do.
    Also, our livestream. Check it out.

    And with that, off we go, onto a magic zipper ride...
