With the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 marking one of the craziest waits in video game history, now felt like a good time for John and Chris to sit and talk their thoughts on the series as a whole after briefly teasing it way back in the first episode. And boy, does it get heated, especially on Chris's side of things.

Highlights include our mutual opinions on why the first game's narrative remains the strongest, Why John generally loves the series bar some iffy portable entries while Chris is more apprehensive, why everyone in Organization XIII can go jump off a cliff as far as Chris is concerned, what needs to change as far as writing and cutscene direction, and the awkward stuff you have to bring up any time someone mentions "Best Girl" for the series. We also give our initial thoughts on KH3 so far (Chris had only finished the first world and John was maybe 2/3 through when we recorded this) and try to remain light on spoilers while critiquing the writing and gameplay.  (Also, this might have my favorite end-of-episode stinger yet.)

Next episode: Legend of Zelda series retrospective

Well, we've been gone a while. Time to settle back into our podcasting groove with a doozy of a two-part comeback episode. Recorded directly from Chris's abode rather than Discord, John, Chris, and occasionally Serena "Rabbit" Wade catch everyone up on their busy last few months, how their holidays and recent convention visit went, employment shakeups, and how not fun the flu is. Once that's done, we praise the recent Kirby collab that Chris participated in and further discuss John's still-ongoing Wario collab. (Expect ALL the Escargoon impressions.)

But the meat of this episode goes to our long-overdue discussion on the first theatrical animated Spider-Man film. Not even gonna try and hide the verdict: We all adored it. Discussions include praise for both Miles and the supporting cast, the like-nothing-else animation style, the beautiful soundtrack, why the movie made John cry three times within the span of 10 minutes, why Serena is now hot for Doc Ock and Aunt May but confused by Kingpin, and why Spider-Man Noir would fit right in on Twitter.  Plus a bonus non sequitur video viewing to make up for how much more editing our massive Kingdom Hearts talk will require.
