King Dumb Hearts


Artist's Note:

I did play Kingdom Hearts when it first came out. It seemed exciting, new, and full of potential. Considering the games that were out at the same time, KH was really great! Visually it was vivid, the gameplay was innovative, and I found myself playing for hours on end.

However, when I stopped playing KH momentarily, I found myself baffled by what I just played. The story was convoluted, the crossovers were bizarre, and it just didn't make sense.

So of course now that KH3 is coming out over a decade after KH2, the story remains just as outrageous, just as nonsensical, and off-the-wall bonkers. You could say I fell out of the KH-fandom long ago. 

Hey guys, so I recently started up a Ko-fi for Berds & Nerds! I'm still new to it, so hopefully I'll be able to figure out how it works. However, I've been meaning to start this up since folks have been inquiring about sending donations to us. Just click below! 


Writer's Note:

To be fair, the fever dream that is Kingdom Hearts's storyline is no less bonkers than Bayonetta. Both series really drive home the point that gameplay trumps story in action games.

The real irritating part about KH is just the timing. I think it's safe to say that 14 years between sequels is just too damn long. I'm amazed that so many people who played the original game when they were kids are still eager fans as adults, but then really can't underestimate nostalgia in this day and age.
