Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and FOURTEEN KARAT GOLD!!!

Warning: SU Season 3 Spoilers


I still want Chrono Cross to show up in this series, cause I'm probably one of the few legitimate fans that game has in these parts

not to mention it's the one Square Enix game to approach Kingdom Hearts levels of confusing and convoluted weirdness

And like Kingdom Hearts, in Chrono Cross the male protagonist turned furry for a bit.

DrakeNier is now Square Enix.

Which I think... dethrones Kingdom Hearts for confusing and convoluted weirdness? DrakeNier already had both hypertime-esque time travel and dimension hopping from the get-go and multiple branches of stories based on different endings the games could take.

DrakeNier was always Square-Enix. Drakengard was actually the very first Square-Enix game.

I mean DrakeNier is also taking the piss half the time (while the other half is genuinely compelling storytelling) so I don't know if that really counts?
But the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy was pretty high up there in terms of convoluted nonsense

drakengard isn't nearly as convoluted as kingdom hearts tbh. you don't need a flowchart to figure out how many people are really caim

We hunted you all just for fun! You're just prey for our hunting games!

Yeah, only the ending paths of the first game are different and mutually exclusive. 3 gets into some weird timeline fuckery, but I think that's mostly just because there is no real logic to it, instead of them trying to patch up all the holes like KH.

Square Enix published the Arkham City games in Japan

Yeah, but if you discount weird edge cases like that and just limit it to things that Square-Enix owns outright, that's still an insane number of properties.

I just wish they'd draw from other sources than just Final Fantasy. They did The World Ends With You once, so they can do more if they want.

I'd like to see Gilgamesh pop up in Kingdom Hearts at some point.

I'm kind of surprised it hasn't happened already. Have him get in a fight with Pete or something.

EDIT: Also bring in that haunted DS game that kills people. Maybe someone plugs it into Space Paranoids idk.

It's just a different convoluted beast when games aren't canon for the big story but you need to read japan-only novelizations, novellas, cd dramas and plays.

Then again, placing any importance on canonicity is for fools

you don't need to do any of that tho

don't get me wrong, it provides a little extra context and all, but it's not at all necessary for anything

It depends on how necessary you see knowing characters' motivations which is pretty important to me personally. But it's an argument I've had too many times

So I just spent most of my Thanksgiving weekend streaming the Kingdom Hearts games I don't own/haven't played, and then watched Back Cover. (pssst, what the hell's a Lux?)

I feel like I'm sufficiently broken now to enjoy KH3 whenever it comes out.

I mean, you can just ask Kingdom Hearts fans for explanations. Probably off, but far more understandable.

It's gonna turn out that Goofy actually did die from that giant rock in KH2, and there is going to be a future game describing Goofy's adventures in the actual heart of worlds Kingdom Hearts where his heart went when he died establishing new OC anime villains, and it's gonna cut back to him waking up on the ground going "Gawrsh, that was some crazy dream, hyuk. I wonder if Sora ever heard about a feller named Ezio..."

Announcing Kingdom Hearts Unlimited Plus+ Another Side: Another Goof: KH3.14. And the whole game will just be about explaining what Goofy did in between the time he got knocked out by a boulder and before the 1000 Heartless fight.

If the whole game is me playing Goofy and learning cool anime fighting skills, sign me up as well. I've always enjoyed Goofy's limits and sleights.
