Guess what my disobedient hubby sneakily bought me  ;D

Super excited.  Don't be surprised if you don't see me for a looong time.

I just saw this reviewed. It looks really well made.
LOL @ Pam... if I had $20 for every time someone used that word with me... well....

I'd probably have like $60

I've only played a couple of hours. I just got through the intro section and got the map opened. I'm not gonna lie, so far it's pretty awesome. The load time is kinda slow, but I find that useful for when you need to grab a drink...or take a piss.

Ok, so I've taken a break from FFVII to play KH, and I'm freakin' addicted.  Every moment I haven't already sold elsewhere is devoted to either playing or thinking about this game. 

It's a three parter.  There are three main characters (Ventus, Terra, and Aqua), and you play out their three separate stories (much like FF Dissidia).  Very cool.  I started with Ventus.  He's very similar looking to Roxas from KH2.  The game play is much the same as the previous games. 

However, a Command Board side-game was added, only accessible at save points.  This is actually pretty awesome.  It's much like a board game, as you progress through the game you collect new boards and new opponents.  For example, the Hundred Acre Woods book that makes a cameo in all the KH games, gives you the Hundred Acre board.  You play against Pooh and Tigger.  You select the GP score you want to play to say 5000.  Then you go around the board, hitting the check points giving you GP, and then once you hit the 5000 mark you head back to the start point and you win.  You can also buy empty game board spaces (like monopoly) and you place your abilities on these open spaces.  When another player lands on it they pay you the GP for that space.  Quick and fun way to level up your abilities.  You can also win new abilities.

Once you've mastered an ability you can meld them with other abilities to make new abilities.  You can also add a crystal to give it a unique bonus ability, such as Item Boost, Combo Boost.  You can multi-add these to make you more awesome.  The combo abilities are almost endless.

You can D-Link with other characters and use their abilities.  When you're in this state and fighting, the enemies might drop special prizes.

I was telling the hubs about the game, and he said he read it was quite short.  I'm sure if you play straight through the story line it would be rather short.  However, I'm one of those that wants to accomplish all the side stuff. Hours upon hours of entertainment.  I highly recommend.

... said pianoman, as he came up for air from the Minecraft group sex thread.

You say that like it's a bad thing. It's a nice break from dreaming about sex all the time.

It is horrible to dream about something you do all day. For the first two weeks, I was clearly addicted.

It’s almost as bad as dreaming about work issues.

I almost never have work dreams, in fact I have a feeling that the one I had last week was the first I've had at this current job, which I've been in for 5 years, 4 months, 1 day, 5 hours, 11 minutes and 14 seconds.  It was terrible. 

Sometimes if I drift off on the train when I'm trying to do sudoku or something like that, my thoughts start mixing in with the boxes and numbers and weird stuff happens.  It's magical.

Sometimes it even helps you to figure things out you couldn't whilst awake.

Really?  Your brain is more helpful than mine when it's sleepy then.  Mine doesn't provide any solutions.  I'm more likely to wake up and discover I've filled the grid out with letters like it's a crossword, and every word is "meat" or "bone".

Heh. You said bone.

I'm easily distracted. I think I'm more focused when I'm dreaming.
At work on Friday, one of my co-workers gave me an "ADD test", and one of my other co-workers was all "[Yo'mama] doesn't have ADD! She's the most focused of all of us!" I'm messing around on my phone most of the day. I'm just better at hiding it is all.

Heh. Yo'mama doesn't have ADD. Beautiful.

In my most productive dream I composed music!

I experience that when I’m forcing myself to stay awake but my body is crying out for slumber. I say strange things that make perfect sense until they leave my mouth, like "I don’t know why the sheep aren’t driving the car. Maybe they forgot how to."

I do that too. It's almost a problem with some modern open ended games. I have an almost crippling need to find everything that can be found. In games where quest lines that can be shut down by choosing other quest lines, I just freeze.

Me too!  To the point of annoyance apparently.  Hubby's all "You're still playing that game???"  If I had just run through it though I probably would have missed the hidden human pin ball game which is awesome!

As stated earlier, the game runs through three different story lines, one for each of the main characters.  The worlds you visit are the same, but the order changes along with the perspective, main bosses, and goals.  I just finished the run through for the second character.  On to the next.

Ditto. Although I don't really freeze. I just realise that I'm going to have to play through again and see what I missed.
