What did you do to generate that? :lol:

Pointed the camera at a ferris wheel, set the exposure time to maximum, the apeture wide open and monochrome mode on. And made sure it was out of focus.

It's not all cars :D

Ooo. Everspace looks VERY pretty!

Is there a good story to go with the graphics? :)

The game does have a story but (at least from what I have seen), there isn't much of one, sadly. It feels kinda tacked on tbh.

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix (PS4)

I've never actually played the Kingdom Hearts series before, despite it being so well known. With KH3 in development (and hopefully not too far away now) which I would quite like to play, I figured it would be best for me to start at the beginning of the series. For starters, to see if I actually like these games, but I know that their story & plot points will be important for going into 3 with if I want to understand what's actually going on heh.

I must say, for a game that is 15 years old they've done a wonderful job with the remastering of the first one. I was quite surprised tbh, it looks really good! I haven't played that many hours of it so far so it's still early days, but I like what I've played of it so far and have been quite taken aback by its difficulty at points. Looking forward to playing more later :)

Kingdom Hearts has never really appealed to me much tbh, despite being a genre fan. The subject matter just feels too...childish from the outside I think!

Maybe a policy I should review at some point, if you find them up to par :)

It's funny you say this because that's one of the reasons which has put me off buying them for so long! KH3 has caught my eye a few times though so I decided to do some digging (not too much so as to spoil, but enough to get an idea).

I'm still only a little way through the first game myself atm (so I've seen very little of the series as a whole) but what encouraged me to give the games a go and buy the HD 1.5 and 2.5 Remix boxset was reading (from multiple sources) that the games, while superficially childlike (it being Disney doesn't help that preconception), are anything but. The overarching story of the series is supposed to be pretty deep and complex from all accounts, and get quite dark in places too. With each title in the series being integral to the plot and the understanding of it. I can't confirm or deny this myself yet as I'm only on the first game as I say, and it spans multiple entries, but this is the impression I came away with when looking into the games and what ultimately made me decide to give them a go :)
