Inktober 2016 - Sad [Days/2] by Sea-Salt Inktober 2016 - Sad [Days/2] by Sea-Salt
Day 5 of the Inktober challenge is themed "Sad". After thinking a bit, I decided to go for the most goddamn heartbreaking scene I've ever watched in a video game. It's been about 7 years (as of this post) since 358/2 Days came out, and KH fans all over are still crying.



Kingdom Hearts (c) Disney/Square-Enix

/insert cruel Xion joke here

I never really got this far in 358/2 due to my DS being taken away from me by circumstances before I could finish it... I totally missed out on experiencing a sad scene firsthand... and even then it is still sad.

I suppose people complain about the voice acting but it works for a guy who doesn't seem to have much, if any, emotion.

I thought the voice acting was fine; it wasn't any worse than the acting in the other KH games. Xion's VA in particular was really good; it's just more so some of the lines that could have used tweaking to sound less weird.

358/2's voice acting is par for the course I guess, though people usually point out the "who will I eat ice cream with" line as the alleged prime example for days' bad voice acting (or maybe script) heh heh heh.

I thought it was fine.

Yeah, while they definitely could have worded that better (maybe something like "We can hang out, eating ice cream like we used to..."), in context it make sense, as it was that one activity they had as friends. I think the localization of the games could use a little work, to adapt dialogue to phrases that make a little more sense in English.

This is pretty great work, and I think you did a knock up job :)

But what makes this KH 358/2 so sad? Never played it.

Well, this picture is pretty much one big spoiler for the ending, but it's pretty much because one character is doomed by canon due to not appearing in KH II, and obviously we know what will happen to Roxas before even playing this game. It's one of my favorite entries in the series, and I'd say it's worth a play if you can find it. Otherwise you could just watch the "movie" from the first HD release.

Yeah. I've been wanting to play these games, as ilve been told how great they are. But the whole series is so hard to follow with the main games, spin offs, prequels and sequels, not to mention the ports haha. ita all pretty overwhelming andni don't know where to start to be honest.

Yeah, it was kind of a challenge to follow with the initial releases, but now that the HD versions of a thing, you literally just need to pick up 2 releases to be caught up. If you have a PS3, you just need to pick up the 1.5 and 2.5 releases (there's another collection coming up that has KH 3D, but you'll need a PS4 for that). I'd say it's worth it if you like action RPGs, as well as Disney stuff and an interesting enough plotline.

1.5 contains:
Kingdom Hearts I
Re: Chain of Memories
358/2 Days (cutscenes put together as a "movie")

2.5 contains:
KH II
Birth by Sleep
Re:Coded (cutscenes as a "movie")

2.8 contains:
Dream Drop Distance
0.2 (playable demo of sorts for KH III, standalone story focusing on Aqua after the events of BbS)
Back Cover (brand new movie that ties into the mobile game, Unchained x)

Playing those first two collections in that exact order will catch you up to speed. You'll need a PS4 for the third collection, though, but that one isn't due until January.

Days was on the 3DS, and BbS on the PSP.
