Hello everybody and welcome back to the wonderful world of Kingdom Hearts with this, the 54th episode of KHU! We finally have a full cast of hosts for you this week as Branden sits down with Churro, Jackie, and Lauren. This is the last show before the huge E3 press conference and the gang spends a lot of time talking about expectations for the event! However, before that, they will take you through the news (what little there is). First up is a release date for Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix in the west in early fall of this year which, if you preorder now, you'll get a free limited edition art book! The second piece of news is that Square Enix will be live streaming their booth at this year's E3 event. You can tune in to see everything (at least we think so). And now on to the meat of the show. This episode is filled with your responses to the previous burning question which was seeing what you think Square Enix will be announcing at E3 and what effect will it have on KH. While most of you try to remain positive, we all seem to be in agreement that we don't expect much of anything KH related to make a debut at the conference. However, we'll just have to wait and see. The next burning questions is "What is your favorite cutscene from Kingdom Hearts 2 and what makes it special to you?" And rounding out the show as usual is a wonderful Kingdom Hearts remix that is a great medley of songs from both KH1 and KH2. The next show will be the E3 post show wrap up, so make sure you don't go too far and we'll see you then!

May is here, E3 is right around the corner, and Final Fantasy Union is back again to talk all things Final Fantasy. Darryl sits down with Lauren and Spencer and they get into the nitty gritty. However, even though E3 is a mere couple of weeks away, the gang uses this episode to do something special. They spend a great deal of time talking about their thoughts, likes and dislikes about Final Fantasy 13-2. Nothing in the game is off limits, so this is your official SPOILER WARNING! First off are the characters. The trio spends a great deal of time talking about the three primary characters of Serah, Noel, and Caius while using your comments to help them guide the discussion. They then spend time talking about most of the secondary characters; which ones worked and which ones didn't. Since this is a sequel, they were able to compare the cast in 13-2 to the original 13. Next up, the story and whether it worked or not with the Historia Crux, the different time periods, and time travel. That moved them seamlessly into talking about the gameplay. While it is similar to 13, they had plenty of changes to talk about such the party monster leveling system and limit breaks, the battle engagements, and the level system found in the crystarium. Which parts were better or worse than the original. And then, the music. Each host has their own pick that they talk about while also talking about the soundtrack as a whole! Reactions and preferences are definitely mixed so listen in to hear how! To round out the episode, you'll get a nice remix of a piece from 13-2 that you'll enjoy! Be sure to stay tuned for new FF developments that are expected to come over the next few weeks!
