Applause must be given to Square Enix and Disney for taking a chance with the original Kingdom Hearts. Taking both the family friendly series of the Disney movies and combining these with some of the dark themes of Final Fantasy must have been a risk. Continue reading Retro-Grade: Kingdom Hearts 2

Sins of the Family
Warning: Contains spoilers for the entire Danganronpa franchise.
Ever since last year’s release of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, and its follow up Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (both remakes of previous PSP games), the Danganronpa franchise has gained a surprisingly large cult following in the US. Danganronpa’s mix of bizarre mind bending story, instantly memorable characters, unique gameplay, and style for days has been a breath of fresh air in today’s game scene, and one of the best cases for owning a PS Vita. In Danganronpa Another Story: Ultra Despair Girls developer Spike Chunsoft decided to go a completely different route, gone is high school life, gone is the whodunnit murder mysteries, gone is the courtroom drama, all of it replaced by a new story, and a completely different type of game. The great question was, could they pull it off?
Matt and Brian talk about Matt actually being a sentient robot, the magic of Project CARS and the next Need for Speed taking place in the Land of Oz. Brian shares some insight on his signature “I’ve got to take a poo” driving style and the guys give a little tease for The Witcher 3 conversation that’ll happen in the next episode.
Matt and Brian celebrate Mother’s Day the only way they know how: sharing stories about their favorite and least favorite video game moms. That Cooking Mama is one sinister lady.
A story of duality in this week’s episode: Brian and Matt talk to Landon about Broken Age before being both happy and sad as we wish Jake our farewells as he takes flight to join GameSpot. But first, he stopped by to talk about State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition.
Lucy joins Matt and Brian for the entire episode to talk about Mario Kart 8‘s DLC, Animal Crossing X Mario Kart, and Shovel Knight‘s release on the Sony consoles. And, of course, we talk about differences between the U.S. and the UK. For knowledge. Then Brian sings part of a Creed song and ruins everything.
