Discussing the Kingdom Hearts 3 Review and Anthem's Potentially Fatal Flaw

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | Will we get another Kingdom Hearts? Does Anthem have a potentially fatal flaw? We ponder these questions and more in the latest episode of the RPG podcast.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is out this week, and we've got Caty back on the pod to discuss her review for USG! Plus, we talk about Anthem, as well as some of the other big RPG headlines of the week [download link here]!

Our conversation runs the gamut from the combat, to the best and worst Disney world, to the distinct lack of a fan-favorite aspect of Kingdom Hearts. We also talk about gummi selfies, and of course, whether or not it does a satisfactory job of wrapping up the main arc. Don't worry, there won't be any spoilers!

Also in this episode, we discuss my recent hands-on time with Anthem. I said I loved it in my recent hands-on preview, but there's definitely one element that gives me pause. Whether it ultimately ruins Anthem's longevity remains to be seen.

Having looked back on the history of Kingdom Hearts, it's time to talk about the newest game in the series: Kingdom Hearts 3! Caty, Kat, and Nadia get together to talk about how well it wraps up the story; the updates to the battle system, and its notable lack of Final Fantasy. Plus, Kat shares her thoughts on Anthem, and wonders if BioWare might have botched a key part of its appeal.
