We've got a bit of a chance of pace this episode, as Darryl and Lauren talk through some pieces of Final Fantasy music that really resonate with them.
Each of hosts has to select four pieces of music that personify a game in the franchise, music that gets them pumped or psyched to experience it!

With Final Fantasy XV receiving so much DLC, we turn our attentions to what this might mean for Kingdom Hearts 3. It's one of the main questions that Branden and Churro run-through this episode, which also features a ton of other discussions.

And to round out the episode, we've got a question about Sora's changing hair colour!
There's going to be even more DLC created for Final Fantasy XV, but how do we feel about this - has it ruined the overall experience? That's one of the questions tackled by Lauren and Darryl in this episode, amongst many, many others!
We're also talking about classic Square/Square Enix franchises that could potentially be revived, what kind of remake we'd like to see for future Final Fantasy titles and flat out, whether or not we think they should just stop producing more content for Final Fantasy XV!
It makes for a rather interesting episode, with plenty of different points of view on display and it's all rounded out with a sweet guitar arrangement!
We hope you guys enjoy!
