Back =) [May. 25th, 2003|02:14 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We had a wonderful time at foxmagic's house! We even got to meet cornrelish who is a very cool person as well =)

We played tons of awesome video games - old arcade games, newer games, all sorts. Brian introduced us to "Kingdom Hearts" which is absolutely awesome. He even let Matt start & save a game, so we can see more of it later. Disney & Squaresoft together in one gorgeous game - what could be better than that? We brought over "Dragon Half" (a funny anime) and watched it - lol. We also had a lot of fun watching snippets of things recorded on his Tivo (I am so getting one of those...). We just got home a little while ago =) I think my face hurts from smiling too much!

Tomorrow I'll mostly be scanning in new artwork and getting my eBay auctions ready to go up in the evening! In the morning I will get to my email and catch up on everyone's journals - I briefly looked in my emailbox and found about a hundred "reply to your comment" messages so don't worry - I'll get back to everyone soon!

Oh yes- when we came home, I saw that the bad kitties knocked over my webcam - so if it looked blurry and carpet-y for awhile that's why =)

Oh Kingdom Hearts is SO much fun. Hehe- You'll have to let me know if you are able to beat Sephiroth in the coliseum, lol. He is one tough cookie!

I like building gumi ships too. My fiance got absolutley ADDICTED to the construction of gumi ships. My only complaint would be the ending is easier than most of the optional bosses. I hate games like that. The graphics and story are REALLY good! They are coming out with a second one sometime in the fall! I cannot wait! Disney and Squaresoft need to get together more often!

The only bosses I couldn't ever beat were Sephie and Kurt. I could probably beat Kurt if I set my mind to it and had patience, but I tried a *lot* to do away with Seph, and he pasted the floor with me every time! :-b

I never liked the gummi ship subgame... it just seemed kinda pointless!

I am *so* looking forward to the sequel. The Secret Ending is an awesome teaser. :)

Re:

Oh no kidding!

I actually did really well with all of the optional bosses...until Sephiroth. And you have to beat Sephiroth to get a hidden ending!

The gummi ship game was amusing, but I wasn't too sure what the point of it was. I did build some really tripped out ships though, lol. I seriously probably spent 25% of the game on those ships alone.

What I really liked was the combat system. It was just..fun. Unlike any game I had played before.

I am determined to beat Sephiroth. I KNOW it can be done.

Actually, beating Sephiroth isn't necessary for the hidden ending! You've seen it, right? If not, then I'll help ya... you've GOT to see it!

Re:

What? You are kidding! I thought you had to completely clear the coliseum! YES help me, please! Do you have to be in expert mode and beat everything?

I added you to my friends list if you don't mind =).. You seem pretty cool!

Thank you! The feeling is mutual, so I added you back too! :-)

There are three requirements to getting the Secret Ending: you have to rescue all 99 dalmatian puppies, lock all of the lockable worlds (including Monstro and the Hundred Acre Wood), and get the Hades Cup. The Hades Cup isn't hard to get if you go for it at the end of the game when you're buff and strong (especially if you're strong enough to last for any length of time against Sephiroth!); if you're missing any puppies then use one of the guides at gamefaqs.com to find 'em; the only part I had trouble with was figuring out how to finish out the Hundred Acre Wood.

But it was well worth the effort. The Secret Ending is *cool.* And it'll leave you with more questions than answers. :)

Re:

Hmm... I did all of that before completing the game and I didn't see any special ending =(..Maybe I missed something.. I thought I had all 99 dalmations but I'm guessing I don't. The Hades cup was quite fun I thought! The Hundred Acre Wood was a bit difficult, lol. But it was all good since it had Pooh and co who are probably my favorite Disney Characters. Some of the games were pretty amusing!

I have a saved game right before the last boss so I'll double check on those dalmations. I hate to use "cheats" as my fiance calls them to win a game but I might just have to after all, lol..

Part of Jiminy's journal will tell you whether you're missing any puppies, I think...

I'll bet you probably haven't finished *all* of the Hundred Acre Wood, maybe? Did you get to the part where you locked the world? If you did, I think the book changes to have a picture of Pooh, Piglet, and Sora on the front cover.

The Secret Ending comes after all the other endgame stuff, after the cutscenes and the credits. It's identified by a big SECRET ENDING banner. I just wish there were a way for me to watch it alone, without having to go to the last savepoint and finish the game again... it takes me about an hour of gameplay and endgame to just get to it!

Re:

I bet your right, I probably didn't lock the Hundred Acre Wood. I just looked and I definitely have all of the pups, so that is the only thing left to do. Does this mean I have to do certain games with time limits?

Now I'm DYING to see this ending. Especially with the sequel coming out soon!!!

I think a couple of 'em have time limits... but they're not all that hard, really! And you have as many tries as ya want. :)
