Welcome one and all; old listeners and new! Thank you all so much for joining us, make yourselves at home, get yourselves comfy, sort out your audio listening preferences and please jump in and join us on our 100th episode.
It’s been a thrilling journey since going live on May 15th 2015 and as much as the last 100 episodes are an amazing chronicle of our gaming habits, hypes, thrills and the odd let down over the last 2 years or more, we sincerely hope that you, our listeners have enjoyed Antony, Darren and occasionally James’ unique brand of gaming views, news and critique. The idea behind what we do has always been to stand by a positive outlook in an industry that can sometimes take those negative downturns and on the whole the guys hope you will agree and have enjoyed our little corner of the gaming world.
With no massive fanfare but more of a humble and enthusiastic nod to the time spent on their endeavor, Antony and Darren verbally fist bump their 100 podcast journey so far and dive straight on in to more of what’s been going on in the world of pixels.
Dazza has taken a trip back in time to 2002 and re-aquired Kingdom Hearts on the PS4 with the 1.5 / 2.5 Remix Edition after getting his desire ignited by the Kingdom Hearts 3 Toy Story trailer and is very pleasantly surprised at the value of the package and the fact the the game is enhanced on PS4 Pro to a 4K 60fps feast.
Enjoy a wealth of Kingdom Hearts facts and trivia from Daz as he gushes about this really great, or indeed definitive version of the Square-Enix classic. This game really is your single ticket to get you up to speed and ready for Kingdom Hearts 3.
Meanwhile, Darren talks about his visit to PlayExpo Blackpool 2017 while Antony tries to keep calm as he prays for adult only Pixar showings in cinemas.
