S2E3 – The Ice Cream on the Desk (358/2 Days Part 1)

Hey, we said we'd be back in January, and here we are! We weren't lying! Last time we finished the prologue of KH2, and now we're jumping back in time to see what Roxas was up to for the past 358 days (/2). If you like hearing us say "ice cream", "clock tower", and a dozen dorky names with X's in them, you're going to love these next few episodes! Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S2E2 – DiZzy Knows Best (KH2 Final Mix Part 2)

Sad news for Roxas fans today: we've finished the Kingdom Hearts 2 prologue. 😔 We will miss our skateboarding, letter delivering, struggle winning boy Roxas, but not for very long, because we'll be back in January to watch 358/2 Days! For now, let's enjoy the rest of our summer vacation, hold our gems high, and mostly talk about how DiZ is racist. Sam | Drew | Twitter | Cohost

S2E1 – Gallagher’s Watermelon Festival (KH2 Final Mix Part 1)

The true Kingdom Hearts begins here! We're starting Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, and we've got a new boy to try to understand. Who is Roxas? Is it just a funny coincidence that his name is an anagram of Sora with an X in it? Why is there so much sea-salt ice cream? Believe it or not, you will walk away from this episode with answers to all three of those questions! Sam | Drew | Twitter

S1E10 – Bod Man Dark (Re:Chain of Memories Part 3)

Darkness darkness darkness, stench stench stench! Rank, dark, putrid darkness! ...Oops, sorry, I forgot I'm not in Castle Oblivion anymore and I can use other words besides those! What I was trying to say was that we finished Re:Chain of Memories with Riku's story this week. Against all odds, this game found a way to say the word "darkness" more often, but don't let that fool you - Riku's story is good! Grab some stinky darkness popcorn and brace your ears, because this episode also contains our first official Donald Duck impressions! Sam | Drew | Twitter

S1E9 – The Metaphor of Fingerless Gloves (Re:Chain of Memories Part 2)

Great news for Vexen haters: this is the episode where Vexen dies! Join us in celebrating the demise of the bad face man, and also probably talking about the rest of Sora's story in CoM for way too long. We have learned the secret of Naminé, and the secret of Marluxia, but the secret of Axel still evades us. Maybe in another couple of games we'll find out what the h*** that guy was up to!

S1E8 – Chip and Dale and Mike (Re:Chain of Memories Part 1)

The true Kingdom Hearts begins here! We're starting a new game, Re:Chain of Memories. Depending on who you ask, it's either very good or not very good. Does the dialogue sound like things humans would say? Not necessarily... but does it matter when most of the characters aren't humans? Hmm! Really makes you think. Fortunately, neither of us is playing the game. No cards for us, thanks! Sam | Drew | Twitter

S1E7 – Zero Big Boats in the Keyblade War (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 7)

We've finished our first game! Before we start on Chain of Memories, where the true Kingdom Hearts famously begins, we've got friend of the show Gigalithic of Zero to Zero joining us for a wrap-up chat about Kingdom Hearts Final Mix! We also talked about the pilot animatic we said we'd watch like four weeks ago. Oops! We had a great time experiencing the first game, and we know it had LORE, but did it have THEMES? The answer may surprise you! Sam | Drew | Gigalithic | Twitter

S1E6 – Pluto’s Bad Adventure (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 6)

I hope you like LORE, because this episode's ARPM (Ansem Reports Per Minute) is off the charts! We've kicked Ansem out of Hollow Bastion, and our reward is an armful of Ansem reports from Aerith. After that, we've got a world tour of secret bosses, each of whom rewards us with an Ansem report. There's more Ansem reports in this game than Ansem himselves! I'm sure that will never change, ha ha ha. Can you imagine? Anyway, next week we'll wrap up our discussion of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, and then we're off to Castle Oblivion! Sam | Drew |…

S1E5 – Show Me Your Crushing Power (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 5)

We're approaching the end of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, but we've got one Disney world left! Once we've stopped Riku from literally murdering Wendy from Peter Pan, we finally arrive at the extremely ominous castle of Hollow Bastion. There are villains to defeat and princesses to save, but most importantly we have a grandma's fairy tale to ponder! Is it actually worth thinking about this much? Only Nomura knows!
