The Joy of Gaming Podcast, Episode 65:

Kingdom Hearts Re:Everything and Persona 5

Update: We were having some issues with the incorrect episode loading...but all should be fixed now.

On this episode of The Joy of Gaming Podcast, we (Rich and Jordan) continue our deep dive into all things Kingdom Hearts, discussing KH 1.5 and 2.5 Final Mix, Re:Chain of Memories Final Mix, 358/2 Days and Re:coded, while also trying to put our finger on exactly what makes their unique mix of mechanics and lore so compelling. And now that we're both a lot further into the 100-hour journey that is Persona 5, we judge Atlus' latest story-heavy RPG/High-School Sim on its own merits, as well as in comparison to Persona 4.

We also discuss a few more games that have made it onto the radar - including Downwell, Yakuza 0, and Overwatch - as well as some interesting news from across the industry, including: Sonic Mania's release, Valve's new Dota 2 card game Artifact, Permadeath in Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Deathmatch coming to Overwatch, new info about Call of Duty WWII's Zombies Mode, the future of Hello Games' No Man's Sky, and more.

So join us, as we take time away from our incessant Heartless-slaying and confidant-leveling to talk about...those exact same things. This...is the Joy of Gaming!
