RPGCast – Episode 491: “But I’m 18!”

So this is actually Episode 491 because “Game Of The Year” was 490. After the show, Anna Marie and Chris got Taco Bell. Johnathan got distracted from his review. Josh got arrested by the feds. And Alex got the worst punishment of all, more Kingdom Hearts.

Question of the Week
Do you understand the plot of Kingdom Hearts?

    I’ve only played Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II, but even based on just those two, I’m skeptical whether the plot of KH is even understandable or remotely coherent.

      I could copy and paste that and it wouldn’t be a lie. Although I did attempt one of the side entries for 1/2 an hour or so before I made better life choices. Plot? Press X to win & look at pretty Disney areas. Or is that gameplay? I’m confused. And that’s likely a summary of most others level of comprehension.

    I have one word for anyone who answers yes: LIES.

    I read a Kingdom Hearts manga once. That had a plot I could understand. Mostly.

    I have some thoughts on the Persona 5 Dancing game, which I’ve been playing. While it doesn’t have a “traditional” story mode, the Social Links really do feel like a story, and playing to unlock & see all Social Links is similar to playing through a game to see its story. I assume P3 Dancing is the same.

    The Social Links of P3 & P5 Dancing are admittedly on a much smaller scale that the full-on story mode of the P4 Dancing game. I can’t recommend getting P3 & P5 Dancing solely for their “story”. But I will recommend them to anyone who likes rhythm games, since they’re quite well-done, fun to play, and have a wide range of challenge levels from “literally anyone can clear this” to “only the most insane rhythm gamers need apply”.

      P3 dancing game was fun for me even though I’d not played a rhythm game in a decade (or maybe because of that). Fun enough to track down the P4 one since I’m more familiar with that crew and figured a bit of story might go well between songs. IMHO it wasn’t worth launch price, but the gameplay is solid I agree!

    QOTW: I’ve played every Kingdom Hearts game and when I’m playing any one KH game, I don’t find myself lost or confused. I find I’m able to follow it just fine, individually. But when I try to piece the different games’ plots together to try and get the whole narrative…
    You ever see those shows where they defeat an evil robot villain with one of those paradoxical logic loop argument things and the robot can’t parse it out and it’s head explodes? Yeah, something like that.
