    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...

    And we're losing no time with the technical issues:

    The game soundtrack for the first (and most likely second) Episode is off-sync.

    Nothing I can do for now, short of re-recording the stuff, but this'll be fixed in future recording sessions. Promise.

    I suppose I'll be staying around, too. Maybe those wanting to talk about the series' plot can talk about it in the Kingdom Hearts thread?

    Also, don't you go and jinx the ponies. There's like 500 Pony Kingdom Hearts...

    And seriously, why does -EVERYONE- fear Sephiroth? He's not that tough!

    I've been meaning to give this game another play through. I might do so after I watch you go at it.

    Nice graphic, by the way.

    Everyone fears white haired prettyboys like him because the author/plot is on their side by default. It's quite common to be cutscene-suckerpunched by them.

    (Seriously, we need to throw that guy off a bridge while we still have the chance!)

    Quick heads-up: We'll be streaming/recording the next episodes tonight, in about an hour from now.

    You can find the stream at Twitch.tv.

    Note: The resulting episodes may vary from what you see in the stream, due to editing, of course.

    Yeah, there are basically two steps to winning the fight: Learning how not to die within the first 20 seconds, and figuring out how to stop the attack where he takes you to one health. Once you have those down you're good.

    "Fandom of Kingdom Hearts, PLEASE don't complain about how 'easy' Sephiroth is, or how 'button mashery' several bosses are. Because then, we get stuff like Vanitas's Lingering Spirit or the Mysterious Figure."

    The thing is, they went -too- far with those 2, at least when you don't do the easy tricks and take the fun out of the fight. If they stayed at the level of KHIIFM's Bonus Boss, then I'd not complain. That fight was hard, but not cheap. Best. Level. Ever.

    I heard they learned their lesson: BBS Final Mix made both bosses a bit easier, and the hidden boss of 3DS doesn't seem to have nearly the complaining about him.

    Back on topic, that introduction cutscene is so trippy...

    Also, in terms of easyness vs difficultness, the item you pick and lose determines what stats come first when you level up, as well as how soon you gain certain abilities. Just for the sake of getting guard and such earlier, I've always prefered taking the shield and sacrificing the sword, but that's just me. Decent stats all around, with a good propincity for being able to survive.

    Also, you don't get your first spell until after you've beaten the... I believe the 3rd climax boss. You'll know him because you get help, in case you don't know the game already.

    New Episode!

    We finish up Destiny Islands and take our first step in Traverse Town.
    Also, meet someone whom Domo despises.

    BOO I SAY!

    Audio errors are gone, and should be gone for good from now on, since I have kinda optimized my production pipeline.
    As always, download the source file for triple audio.
    Also, Blip Mirrors should be online by the end of the week.

    Enjoy!

    Meet the other jungle book and witness the drama of me failing to jump from hippos! Yes, really. Hippos. YAY!

    Also, Announcement:
    We'll be postponing thursdays episode 'til monday. Afterwards, this LP will be on hiatus for a few weeks, since I just moved and don't have teh interwebs at home yet. I guess it'll be about 6 weeks from now, hopefully sooner.

    My System Shock LP won't be affected by this, since I'm recording that one solo and can upload it from work, but I can't stream my game to Domo from there, obviously. Sorry, guys.

    Well, in order to get some kind of feedback here:

    Anyone got suggestions? Anything y'all want to see? What about our little extra in episode 13? Yay or nay? Anyone at all watching this?
