I didn't beat Vanitas's Sentiment and the Mysterious Figure
Got everything else other than that though.
And... well, BBS didn't really tell me anything new aside from the deal with the X-Blade, regardless of what I was spoiled about, so.
So were you able to resist spoilers? Did you get accidentally spoiled? I would go into my detail, but I just want confirmation that you beat the game 100%. :p
Let's meet up once we both played the game and see who lasted longer before actually playing C:
I didn't even know you could minimize KH sections. Thanks for the knowledge, I just figured it out. Also I just disabled my avatar and signature settings. I don't have to disable my PMs or visitor messages since I'm not popular enough to be bombarded with those. I'll probably be a bit wary of the regular KH sections too in case someone tries to make a comparison to a BBS spoiler.
I was thinking of getting Crisis Core for a while, and it probably would prove useful since I've never really played a PSP before so I'm unsure how it works. (I'm using my brother's PSP for BBS). Dissidia also caught my eye, but knowing me, 1v1 fighting games will get boring fast for me without being able to play against a human opponent.
It's admirable how your form of love for KH is. It seems you're set, I just hope I can last as well as you.
Thanks, and indeed, good luck to us both. :)
I switched msn names, for one. Since people hunted me down even there on Days.
Cancelled PMs. VMs are soon to follow. (so good thing you contacted me now XD)
Cancelled avatars and signatures. It's possible through your Options in the User CP.
Not getting anywhere near the FoKH. Minimized the KH sections so even if I wanna go into the side or main stories sections, I do so knowingly and can keep my eyes on the side of the page that lacks thread titles.
If I managed to lay off the info up until now and the release is two days from now, I think I can make it. Will give me also a time to play some other games until BBS actually comes around. I need to play Crisis Core (which I wanna since it might hold relevance to BBS as far as the KH cameos are concerned), some more Layton, the new Ace Attorney game featuring Edgeworth is to be released soon... so thankfully I'm obsessed enough to be able to hold off on it.
I love KH that much. So enjoying the game is more important to me than being right about theories (I have enough of that)
Good luck to the both of us.
What are you going to be doing upon the release of BBS? Stay away from the forums, stay away from parts of the forum, or spoil yourself entirely?
I don't want to spoil myself for BBS, though I tried that for Days and (semi) failed. What with titles of threads, people posting in wrong areas, avatars, YouTube "recommending me" videos, et cetera. I personally want to stay on the forums; not around the KH section much but I generally hang around one of the anime threads for checkups and discussion purposes. However, I don't feel like being spoiled of Vanitas' identity via avatar or sig, so I'm currently looking into a way to disable those.
The last factor is how long until the US release comes out. I can only hold out for so long until temptation hits me. I might end up quick-viewing a vid or two, or short-skimming vague threads as I partly did for Days. I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff.
What are you going to do?
Xion probably had a heart of her own, if we assume her composition was the same as Riku's Replica, who attested well enough to having a Heart of his own and mocked the CoM Org members about it.
However, as you said, her Keyblade was an imitation of one, and her "qualification" to wield - copied to stolen from Roxas.
I doubt that's why they wanted Hearts, but time will tell. As for Xemnas not being able to wield, then we have two factors to consider about why he had no Keyblade, despite obviously being related to at least one out of Terra, MX and maybe even DS.
1) Xehanort the Apprentice lost his Memories. Therefore, even if he was a qualified wielder, he would still be unable to wield, going by KH2's Roxas before he underwent his Destati and rediscovered his Keyblade.
2) Roxas has the Ven factor going for him which would let him wield at the same time Sora did. However, nothing guarantees that Xemnas would enjoy something like that. Namely - XH would've had the Keyblade neither of them could reach until arguably Riku Duel Wielded thanks to him, leaving Xemnas without access to it.
As for Saix... I personally don't believe his Somebody relates to anyone we know. Least of all Terra. But then again I'm not up to date with BBS news so, meh.
My 2 cents on the matter.
I guess I'll have your opinion. I wasn't sure if this was thread worthy due to not being that big of a breakthrough. Then again, this could also be old news.
Mainly the reasons people disconnect MX's/Terra's connections to Xemnas and Saix are reasons such as "Well why didn't they wield a Keyblade?"
I believe those members do have connections to Birth by Sleep characters, and their somebodies, or, at least one of them, was able to wield the Keyblade. However, the reasons he/they couldn't wield a Keyblade is because they didn't have a qualified heart due to being Nobodies.
But what about Roxas, you ask? I think it's been hinted enough about him having a heart to be safe to say he does, in some way, have a heart. He is a "special" nobody afterall. For all we know, it could be Ven's heart that he has. Whether he does or doesn't have Ven's heart, I do not know. But I do believe he has one.
Xion had a Keyblade as well, but probably had no heart. The reason she had a Keyblade is because her Keyblade wasn't real, although it was a swell imitation.
Each of the other wielders had qualified hearts, so no need to go into them.
(One of) the reason(s) Xemnas and/or Saix might have wanted Kingdom Hearts so much is because they also wanted to re-obtain a qualified heart to wield a Keyblade.
After a recent thread, I recently thought of many reasons Saix can be connected to BBS, namely Terra. But that's another story for another time.
Anyway, what's your take? Am I on the money or repeating "old news"?
Wait 'till you see the conspiracy theory ;D lawl.
Despite past differences of opinions, you are one of the more intelligent and capable people in the KH secs. And I do enjoy debating with you. Hence.
