Kingdom Hearts I & II

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
After playing the games on my phat PS2 (that I got for $50 btw biggrin.gif) back in the day, beating them, and loving each one, I've gone back to playing them on my PC through PCSX2.

First of all, this emulator is freaking awesome. I'll be donating some of my money to them just because they made it available to everyone. Second, I'm so happy my PC can run it at a straight 60fps with no problems at all. Back when I had my laptop, it could barely stay at 30fps. This makes me biggrin.gif

You know when you replay a game after a long time, some things hit you that you didn't see the first time. Well the thing that struck me the most about both these games were the facial expressions of the characters. For a PS2 game, the emotions shown from the facial movements on the Sora, Kairi, Riku, or anyone else important to the plot could actually be seen and well understood. Playing on my PS3 or 360 now adays alot of people tend to overlook the small details people put in to make everything "life-like." Even if it only happened during the game driven cut scenes, it still has me amazed at the power that little Emotion Engine has. And now that I can run the games at my native resolution its even more evident.

Just thought I'd share some of my realizations from one of my favorite games of all time smile.gif

I agree, they were both awesome games.

I'm very keen to reset up a PS1 emulator to replay spyro. Because nothing beats that experience at all. But thinking about it now replaying Kingdom hearts would also be awesome.

Hmm, damn now you've got me itching to play!

Beat the first Kingdom Hearts when it first came out and loved every moment of it. Bought the second Kingdom Hearts when it came out but never got around to playing it with college and dating. Now when I try to boot up my old PS2 and give it a go after 20 minutes my wife will say 'is that all you do in this game is talk to people?'. Haven't made it out of the intro tutorial town rolleyes.gif. One day...

I actually beat KH2 out of rage because my mom wouldn't let me go to my friends house. So I left without telling her, walked to the Target down the street, bought the game, and came back telling her I need to go for a walk lol
