    • I’m watching 358/2 Days first so I can collect everything with Sora during Chain of Memories. Never actually watched this whole thing before.
    • The way the Days storyline played out was kind of like a Persona game. TWEWY was like that, too.
    • Roxas is the best.
    • Nothing lasts forever you know. Especially for Nobodies like us. - Axel
    • This whole having to click during a movie thing is annoying. Like I wanna eat popcorn but then I have to touch my PS5 controller with my buttery ass fingers.
    • Mickey in his Org coat lmfao. Those ears.
    • This was much better as a game than a movie. Sad they didn’t just remaster the game, it was pretty damn good.
    • CoM time let’s gooooo. I love card games and loved this game on GBA. I've never actually beaten the console version as Riku but I've obviously played it a bit, but this time I'll be getting everything.
    • This script is amazing. Although this was written as a GBA game so makes sense.
    • Please don’t @ me but I ****ing love the card system. Building decks is LIFE
    • The first Axel fight is epic stuff. I still feel like I preferred this all on the GBA tho.
    • Gotta love the starring role Jiminy Cricket takes in this game.
    • I keep editing my deck for no reason, but it's half the fun.
    • I'm on the 4th floor now, just chugging along through the most fillery filler I've ever seen. This game is really held together by its card system and if you aren't into that then...

    • Honestly not much to report. This game is really repetitive, but I like leveling up and continuing to customize my deck.
    • It’s a shame the Disney worlds are so pointless. It’s literally KH1 but with the plot slightly altered to involve memories. Especially because the original story in this game is actually amazing, but the formula of only having those scenes between floors is annoying.
    • Thankfully each world takes like 45 minutes to complete or less
    • Reached Hollow Bastion. Things are finally heating up storywise, but yeah this is a real slog.

    • TT was such a short world. I liked Vexen’s death scene though.
    • How short that world was made me wish they were all like that actually. Especially since you can endlessly make new rooms between 2 rooms anyway
    • The fact that Sonic Blade is basically the best sleight for most of the story and owns everything is kinda sad. Like the deck building system could lead to so many intricate strategies but they’re all nullified by it
    • At least these last 3 floors are really getting interesting, the story is this game once the gameplay loop wears off a bit
    • Last floor = epic
    • I’m really looking forward to Riku. Never played RR on console
    • Ok finally at Riku. This is so much more streamlined than Sora. Combat is very similar to KH1
    • Random thought but I wish there was something harder than Marluxia to go back and fight after you grind Sora up

    • I just beat Riku, that was super quick
    • Here comes the Enemy Card grind. Pray to RNGesus

    • This level 99 grind… why!? There’s nothing to even fight once you get OP
    • That’s something this game needed. An optional boss in each story mode that pushes your card skills
    • 2 levels left…
    • HOLY **** that grinding with Riku was so ridiculous. I started getting really good at catching the whole mob with Lexaeus’ warp in the end. It probably took about 8 hours to grind him from 57 to 99. Wow, glad that’s over with
    • I’m glad I have a complete file for this game, but what a waste of time LMAO
    • I still have a few random trophies to get to. Gonna take a breather then finish those off

    Now that it's over, I can say I enjoyed CoM. But that's it. The story is its high point, but I think the jump from GBA to the big screen hurts the game overall. It's basically a rehash of KH1 with worse game play due to the card system. At least on the GBA it was novel and the sprites and horizontal 3D combat were unique and made for an exciting game. I'm glad to be moving on from this but I will say that this game did tell a good smaller story while hinting at something bigger, similar to KH1. The ability to play as Riku is also a huge boost. Honestly, this game accomplishes what it sets out to do and you can't complain about that. I just think it pales in comparison to some of the later side games. Still, for a GBA remake this could be worse.
