Chain of Memories: 1, Me: 0

After being beaten roundly (and repeatedly) by Hades, I give up. No more Chain of Memories for me. Stupid cards.

Thankfully, I picked up the Kingdom Hearts Series Ultimania Alpha (Introduction of Kingdom Hearts II), which contains a summary of the story for Kingdom Hearts AND Chain of Memories. It's intended as a book to prepare people for KHII.

Score. ^^

He he. I spent much of yesterday morning working on Hades, which is where I last gave up. I eventually muscled my way through, but it took me five or six tries.

I wanted to finish CoM before I started KH2... but I have now bought KH2, and it's so much shinier... and the card combat system and Hollow Bastion do not seem to be a good combination...

Bweh. Whoever came up with "cards" and "action game" should have been taken outside of the company and shot, to put him out of our misery.

(This post has been brought to you by the word "hyperbole". No, I am not honestly advocating shooting the person who came up with this idea.)

But maybe, if we shot everyone at Squeenix, they'd hire replacement who were, y'know, actually competent!

The fact that you need a huge, what, 400 page book? to "prepare" for KH2 speaks something of the bizarre convoluted (and at times inadequately explained) plot of the series, doesn't it? :P

Trust me you're not missing much by not finishing CoM. The only real significance to KH2 is "have seen x character before".

Only 319. ^^ And around half of it is practically appendices for the Kingdom Hearts and CoM Ultimanias. But, yes, you're right. I still remember being perplexed by the first 2-3 world lockings, going: "Wait - when did anyone explain that he needed to do this? WTF is going on?"
