    Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories: When the Story Went to Hell

    Two games in and the series’ plot has already gone to hell. And it only gets worse from here. Good job, guys. Chain of Memories might be the strangest entry in the entire franchise.

Some people love the series with all their hearts (heh heh, puns). Others think […]

You’re making your way through arcade mode on the highest difficulty. You reach the end, your fingers exhausted […]
