Worlds Remaining: 11

Plot Points:
Other than paying a couple mini-games with Winnie the Pooh & friends, not much new to add. Sora thinks he spotted Riku running around in those limited-edition Organization XIII coats. Everyone's all "why would Riku be with the Organization?"

Simple. The kid saw the black coat uniform and thought they were Sephiroth clones. So he was all "yes, I've been looking everywhere for my clone crew. We gotta head to Reunion, yo!"

Man, Sora is going to be upset when he realizes he was ditched so Riku could go star as main baddie in the Advent Children movie.

EDIT 9:13 4/16/06:

Woosh through Beast's castle. Man, Xaldin has mutton-chops. Really, who told these guys that dreds and mutton-chops were a good plan?

Seriously, dude, you're scaring the kids.

Olympus was fun because it saw the return of Auron, who is badass. Sora experienced FFX flashbacks or something. He touched a little Auron action figure and gained magical electrifying insight into Auron's past. Insight you don't get to see because you played FFX, and if you didn't, well Square assumes you're going to. Auron gave him a keyblade. (I have since declared it the coolest keyblade ever.)

The last member of Organization XIII revealed themselves in Port Royale. A blond guy with ear piercings and a stuffy accent. No idea what his name was, I was too busy freaking out over having got Anti Form during a battle.

Anti-form is when you drive and Sora turns into one of the funky heartless that were in the Deep Dive movie. (Usually you see Roxas battle with them in the KH music videos.) So it's a heartless with Sora's clothes on. Of course, by standard video game logic, nobody notices that Sora turned into a heartless... nope, why would they?

Oh, I was forced to endure another cut scene where Miss Swan clutches Will as he lays on the floor. I bet they re-used the footage because Sora had the same "I can't believe I paid to see Kingdom of Heaven" look on his face he had last time.

Then Mr. Stuffy Blond stole the Black Pearl and left Sora—or Zola as Jack called him—Donald, Goofy, and Johnny Depp for dead. Nobodies have scattered medillions about, so we have to go find them. Jack's been cursed again, and I was like "YES, SHOW ME SKELETON SORA" but they didn't feel like programming that, so Sora, Donald and Goofy are immune to the curse. Yeah. Because they don't get effected by worlds like uh... Olde-Timey Disney, Tron, Halloween Town, Atlantica, or The Pride Lands. Don't lie to me Square, you lazy bums.

I suppose I'll have to settle for Spooky Sora with bat wings, in Halloween Town. That's where I'll be headed after Port Royale is finished.

Oh, and a massive weird upside down town with a little world floating above has appeared in a hazy You Can't Go Here Yet But We'll Taunt You With It Anyway green shield. I'm guessing it's the World That Never Was, the rumored place of all the final boss stuff.

Almost done? Nah, probably halfway through. Personally, I'm enjoying that the game isn't too difficult.

Thanks for the comments about the disembodied head of Sora. ^_^
