This post is here to serve as an announcement that, during January 2019, I will be shutting down the comments sections for the Kingdom Hearts Retrospective. Don’t worry, all the old comments will stay up, but you won’t be able to make any new ones. The idea is to have them closed before the release of Kingdom Hearts 3. Since I have to do each page manually, it may take a while, so I’m not setting any exact date, but it will be done before the release date on the 29th.
This is first and foremost an anti-spoiler measure, but I don’t intend to reverse it, since it’s also my way of signalling that I don’t intend to keep polishing up my commentary – in the post or in the comments – every time Nomura does something that expands on said commentary. Once KH3 is out, the Retrospective will be out of date (even more than it already is), and this is my way of acknowledging that. I’ll probably put a boilerplate to that effect in the intro post, too.
One of the luxuries of the Journals over the Retrospectives is that the Journals were never intended to be all-inclusive. A playthrough of FFIV on the Complete Collection was simply that, and the fact that I’ve played FFIV on PC since then doesn’t necessitate an update to the entire Journal. If I ever get back to doing Retrospectives, I should probably make sure it’s for series that are long dead, but no promises, not even to myself. If I break that promise, you can bet that one day, I’ll have to close their comment sections too.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading.
