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!

S1E4 – Be Your Own House (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 4)

This week, we visit the lands of earworms - Atlantica and Halloween Town! We're approaching the endgame already, somehow, but first we've got some more Ansem reports and a funny little bear in a red shirt to meet. Also, Sam's finally activated his brain to produce the first proper Crackpot Corner! Sam | Drew | Twitter

S1E3 – Sidecar That Runs on Grimaces (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 3)

The Nasty Boyz are at it again! This time, we're being irreverent about Traverse Town again, Agrabah, Traverse Town again, and Monstro, discussing sword lore and door lore. How cool must a sword be to kill a Heartless? What makes a sword cool? When is a door not a door? And why was Pinocchio playing with a big pile of poop in that new movie? I don't know, but if I were one of the Nasty Boyz I might say that's a metaphor for Disney these days! Haha! Sam | Drew | Twitter

S1E2 – Clayton Gets Crucified (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 2)

Disney adults, rejoice! After we get through our list of apologies for all the stuff we got wrong in the first episode, we're heading to Disney World! Oops, wait, sorry, this says Disney worlds, haha! Fortunately, neither of us have to play through the fairly miserable Wonderland and Deep Jungle, so we just get to enjoy the iconic tones of Brian Blessed and a guy who sounds kind of like Danny DeVito. Also, Donald gets a new girlfriend! Daisy will kill him! Sam | Drew | Twitter

S1E1 – A Music Video About Going Through Puberty (Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Part 1)

If you've ever wondered what the heck is going on with Kingdom Hearts, you've come to the right place! In our first episode, we're talking about the beginning of Sora's journey in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix: the Destiny Islands and Traverse Town! Topics include PS2 belts-per-second specs, Kairi's iconic laugh, making convenient excuses on Nomura's behalf, and Sora straight up watching a man die. Sam | Drew | Twitter

We've all got a lot of questions about Kingdom Hearts. Sam, a lifelong fan, and Drew, a guy who kind of knows what's going on but not entirely, will find the answers to all these questions, or your munny back!
