SWTOR: A Far Better Romance Story Than Twilight.Awww, this was kinda cute. (Despite the murder's at the beginning but eh, The Jedi struck first. XD)
Epic Darth Maul Fanfilm.Definitely an epic fan movie.
Gotta give that Sub-Zero looking dude a lot of points though, he took a stab through the chest by a lightsaber like a champ and still kept on kicking...before he fell to pieces. Guess that's why Maul learned to make sure when he stabs someone with his saber, it's in a place where they ain't getting back up. XD
WARNING. THIS WILL BE SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SEEN THE GAME THEMSELVES. ALSO, THIS IS ALL SOLELY MY OWN OPINION AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO AGREE WITH IT. I WELCOME ANY OPPOSING THOUGHTS SO LONG AS PEOPLE ARE RESPECTFUL ABOUT IT.
Following Master Xehanort's return, Yen Sid begins preparing for seven Keyblade wielders to counteract Xehanort's plan to forge the χ-blade using a reconstituted Organization XIII. Sora, who was nearly taken over by Xehanort previously, discovers that he has lost much of his own strength as a result. Accompanied by Donald Duck and Goofy, Sora resumes his travels across other worlds in order to regain his "power of waking", the ability to restore lost hearts. Meanwhile, Riku and King Mickey traverse the realm of darkness in search of Aqua, while Kairi and Lea train to properly wield their newly obtained Keyblades.
How does Sora getting nearly possessed by Xehanort make him lose his powers? He still had them after he was freed so fantastic continuity there! This "power of waking" is NOT very well described. Why was it or anything like it NEVER mentioned in the past entries? We never even get to SEE Kairi or Lea's training so what was even the point? There is also the issue of Riku's Keyblade getting BROKEN...how is that possible? All that build up with it only for it to lose like that? Not to mention his OTHER Keyblade looks cartoonish. What does he mean by the "other me" anyway?
During their travels, Sora and Riku are contacted by Ienzo, who discovers via Ansem the Wise's research data that Sora's body contains the hearts of Roxas, Ventus, and Xion. Riku surmises that the Organization's members from the past are using artificial human replicas created by Vexen as vessels that enable their existence in the present, which inspires Sora to restore Roxas by transferring his heart into a replica body. Meanwhile, the Heartless Ansem enters the realm of darkness and kidnaps Ansem the Wise, corrupting Aqua's heart in the process. However, Vexen reveals himself to be a double agent loyal to Ansem the Wise, whom he helps rescue before sending a spare replica to Ienzo for Roxas to inhabit.
Hearts? Roxas and Xion have them? But isn't Sora their heart as they both came from him? Ventus' heart, I can understand. But Roxas and Xion's? Makes their fusion with Sora be for nothing, doesn't it? Artificial human replicas created by Vexen? Since WHEN has Vexen ever been capable of that? Also, wouldn't separating Roxas and Xion from from his being DAMAGE him and make him incomplete? Why didn't Ansem corrupt Ansem the Wise too? Wouldn't that make him malleable to their cause? Not to mention the trailers seem to make it out like both he and Aqua would become Xehanort vessels, so good teasing there; Nomura. WHEN did Vexen become a double agent? How long was that? When could they have come into contact while Ansem the Wise was in the Realm of Darkness.
Riku and Mickey eventually locate and battle the corrupted Aqua in the realm of darkness. At the same time, Sora discovers Master Eraqus's Keyblade on the Destiny Islands and uses it to enter the dark realm, where he exorcises the darkness from Aqua and returns her to the realm of light. Sora, Donald, and Goofy then follow Aqua to Castle Oblivion, which she transforms back into the Land of Departure to awaken Ventus. When she is attacked by Vanitas, Sora rediscovers his power of waking and revives Ventus, who fends Vanitas off.
Aqua's time as a corrupted figure is so brief like her that she feels pointless here. HOW did Master Eraqus' Keyblade end up on the Destiny Islands when it was with Aqua the whole time? She also had the ability to destroy Castle Oblivion the entire time? Sora just all of a sudden knows how to release Ventus's heart? Total deus ex machina here...
With seven Keyblade wielders assembled, they depart for the Keyblade Graveyard to battle the Organization, only to be quickly consumed by a swarm of Heartless summoned by the possessed Terra. Awakening in a purgatory realm called the Final World, Sora is guided back to the realm of light by Kairi and uses the power of waking to revive his friends, despite Young Xehanort's warnings that misusing this power will result in him losing his own heart again. Returning moments before their initial defeat, the guardians of light successfully destroy most of the Organization's members; in the process, Terra regains control of his body and reunites with Aqua and Ventus, while Lea reunites with Xion, whom Vexen recreated for the Organization, and Roxas, who regains his own heart to protect Lea and Xion.
Final World? That is a bit generic for a title, isn't it? The Organization is the beaten with ease, making them look WEAKER then the one Xemnas held. Terra's release just seems to come easily and the reuniting of the Nobody trio REALLY undoes the ending of 358/2 Days. Just how does ANYONE remember Xion when her death erased her from everyone's minds?
Once Xehanort remains the last Organization member, he provokes Sora into attacking him by destroying Kairi's body, allowing Xehanort to acquire the χ-blade and summon Kingdom Hearts. Using Xehanort's power of time travel against him, Sora, Donald, and Goofy transport him to his boyhood training grounds of Scala ad Caelum, where they defeat him. After the other Keyblade wielders rejoin the trio, Eraqus's spirit emerges from Terra's body and convinces Xehanort to surrender. Xehanort and Eraqus depart together to Kingdom Hearts, while Sora and his friends use the χ-blade to close Kingdom Hearts and return to their own time.
Just HOW does Kairi's body getting "destroyed" help make the X-Blade? Sora just seems to instantly gain the power to manipulate Xehanort's time ability and Eraqus' "ghost" just casually/easily shows up to STOP everything. Xehanort just...stops, surrenders just like that and they reconcile despite the fact he murdered Eraqus in cold blood and the Master was hell-bent on stopping Xehanort. Are we to accept that Xehanort just suddenly experienced a pang of altruism at the drop of a hat just by meeting his fellow Keyblade Master again? Kingdom Hearts should have destroyed Xehanort for all his sins like it did his Heartless, not accept/redeem him.
Seeking to save Kairi, Sora uses the power of waking again to revive her; despite the risk of becoming lost forever, Sora promises to return. Afterwards, Eraqus's students return to the Land of Departure; Roxas,Isa ,Lea, and Xion stay in Twilight Town with their friends; and Naminé is restored in a replica obtained during the battle with Xehanort. Sora's friends gather at the Destiny Islands for a celebration, where Kairi stays beside Sora before he fades away.
Sora basically just goes out like Luke from TLJ, just fading away. Yeah, he does not even go out in combat. He just...dies. Even Namine gets a "heart" even though Kairi is her heart and thus makes her incomplete now too! This game went all out to throw out all the rules and setup the past entries did and pisses off the fans by killing off Sora so unceremoniously.
In a post-credits scene, Xigbar, who survived the Keyblade War, retrieves Xehanort's Keyblade and summons four of the five Foretellers, revealing himself to be a reincarnation of their fellow Keyblade apprentice Luxu. He begins to recount his actions to the Foretellers, with Maleficent and Pete watching from afar. In a flashback to their youth, Eraqus and Xehanort begin a game of chess enacting a battle between Sora and the Foretellers.
Xigbar survived? WTF?!?! How does he retrieve Xehanort's Keyblade? How can he even touch it if he is not a Keyblade Master? These "Foretellers" feel like they were thrown in at the very last moment! Since WHEN was Xigbar/Braig a reincarnation of a Keyblade Master? If he were, he would have been able to wield the Keyblade LONG ago! This makes it so it was NOT over after all! Making Sora's "end" all for NOTHING! And where the hell were Maleficent and Pete in all of this?!
In conclusion, all I can say is...for me, this game was an insult. It goes out of its way to tick you off in every conceivable fashion. It doesn’t work as a standalone game, it doesn’t work as a sequel, the choices make no sense, and the story does everything in its power to make sure the hardcore fans will hate it. While I admit it is kind of funny just what a reckless sellout it is, it does cross a sort of line when it’s taking the expectation of fans to the series making such convincing trailers to represent something that they know they’re gonna hate. It not only feels forced and stupid, it just feels…wrong.
I'll give credit that the effects are pretty good, much better than some of the previous games of the year. I'll also give credit that it is kind of a "so bad, it's funny" kind of game story-wise. I mean, they just constantly throw stupid shit after stupid shit at you, it's relentless in the amount of dumb it spits in your face; but that's not what people wanted. They wanted a real Kingdom Hearts game; one that's fun, but also made some semblance of sense and gave us something new and different. Instead, we pretty much got the worst Kingdom Hearts game ever. All the weaknesses, none of the strengths, everything that people say didn't work in those past games is showcased in this one. I don't care if it made a whole lot of money, to me, this is a Kingdom FAIL.
