Back in Boston - back when I was bitten - I wasn’t alone. My best friend was there, and she got bit too. We didn’t know what to do. So…she says, “Let’s just wait it out. Y’know, we can be all poetic and just lose our minds together”. I’m still waiting for my turn.

For those of you who were busy with the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, here is a Christmas present from Square Enix - a new trailer for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX.
This compilation will include Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix, and HD cinematic scenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. It is set to release in 2014.
An interview with creator Tetsuya Nomura by Famitsu shows that Nomura is well aware that Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance is left out of the loop.
