This year's MCM Expo was a blast for Lauren and I, but the clear highlight was getting to meet up with Ali Hillis, the voice of Lightning in the Final Fantasy XIII franchise, to have a face-to-face interview. It was a bit shorter than we had hoped for, but the planning was all pretty last minute and the interview almost didn't take place! We're very happy it did though, and hopefully you guys are too. With no Final Fantasy XIII game coming out (shock), we took the time to ask Ali about some other topics relating to voice acting and also her surprise cameo in Final Fantasy Type-0 HD as Emina. Enjoy!

E3 2015 was an intense experience for fans of Kingdom Hearts and we were there first-hand to experience the euphoria and soak it all up. Branden and Churro are joined by Sabrina this episode as they all discuss their experience at this year's show, recanting stories of what it was like to be in the Square Enix press conference as well as sitting down for a round-table interview with legendary Kingdom Hearts creator, Tetsuya Nomura. The gang also take the time to dissect the E3 2015 trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 and run through some of the various theories that have been filtering through the internet. It's a show you won't want to miss.

We are joined by Corri English, the voice of Sice in Final Fantasy Type-0 HD for another of our special interview episodes with Square Enix! Corri has dabbled with voice acting over the years, having appeared in franchises such as Skyrim, Mass Effect and Dragon Age, but is also part of a successful band called Broke Down Cadillac. In this interview, we ask Corri about her role as Sice and also what it was like to be featured on The Mentalist! Corri has had such an interesting career so far and is incredibly passionate about Sice as a character, so we hope you enjoy listening to the interview!

Branden, Darryl and Churro sit down for a special podcast to talk about the absolute truck load of news that came out of E3 2015. Not only did we get to see extended coverage of Kingdom Hearts 3, as well as the announcement of a completely new world, but we also got to hear more about Kingdom Hearts Unchained Chi. But that's only half of it, during the Sony Press Conference, two new games were announced from the Final Fantasy franchise: World of Final Fantasy and a full-on Final Fantasy VII Remake. Both of these titles will be timed exclusive for PS4, as well as a shed load of other titles that were shown off, including Star Ocean 5 and a new extension to the NieR franchise. Sure, Final Fantasy XV missed the show as we expected, but with everything that we got, this one was hell of an E3 for fans of Square Enix!

There have been some Final Fantasy XV bombshells since the last episode, as Hajime Tabata took to the stage in the latest Active Time Report to share some details about the game's development. There was a primary focus around the story and we now know that Stella Nox Fleuret has been cut from the game and replaced by Lunafreya. Nojima's role has also changed and some of the initial scenes shown off when the game was Final Fantasy Versus XIII have also been cut. It means there is plenty to talk about and that's without even getting into the other news (Episode Duscae 2.0) and the return of the quiz!
