It's Tuesday and I'm actually on time!

This week @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn are joined by @Plums and @KeybearerofSea for special reflection on 2014! As always, we begin with some Kingdom Hearts news and updates, chatting about the possibility of Kingdom Hearts figures in Disney Infinity, as well as the reassurance that we'll be hearing more about Kingdom Hearts 3 in 2015.

From there we launch into a reflection on 2014, beginning with the major world news from the year, what games came out this year and what games we actually played, and likewise for television shows, movies, and music! It'd take far too long to list everything here, so have a listen and see what we were into! We then look forward to 2015 and what we're hoping for in the new year.

Finally, we answer user-submitted questions from @Eric Luna , @Graxe, and @Highlande╔╝ , chat about the toughest bosses in Kingdom Hearts history, and address some community news before we sign off (Castle Oblivion, Secret Santa, forum tidying, and the 9th birthday of KH-Vids).

Thanks everyone for the support for the site and the podcast this year! Let us know your thoughts on the episode, what you were diggin' from 2014, and what you're looking forward to digging in 2015.

With the popularity of Disney Infinity and it's vast amount of figures based on characters owned by the Walt Disney Company, some wondered whether it would be possible characters from Kingdom Hearts would be included to the growing list of figures. Well, a moderator in the Disney Infinity forums had the following to say in regards to the request for KH characters:

While this isn't a confirmation that it'll happen, at least it's clear that the developers behind Disney Infinity know there's a demand for KH characters.

In before the deadline with mere minutes to spare

It's Tuesday and you know what that means...! Podcast episode woo.

This week podcast hosts @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn sit down for a super long and super fun episode! First off we cover the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix -- what we're digging about the collection and what we're looking forward to playing -- and its launch event that @libregkd (Nick) attended in California. You can read his full, written account here, or check out some VIP pics, but Nick provides us with a verbal account of both the event and the Kingdom Hearts III footage shown there.

After that we move along to the just passed PlayStation Experience event, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of PlayStation. Nick was also in attendance to that, so he was able to give us some firsthand accounts & perspectives on titles like Street Fighter V, Yakuza 5, Uncharted 4, God of War 4, Drawn to Death, Grim Fandango, Bloodborne, No Man's Sky, Amplitude, and The Witness. @Misty also sticks her fingers in her ears to any negative press about The Order 1886, surprising no one. We also address the leak of a Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on the PS4 and the possibility of the Kingdom Hearts remasters receiving similar treatment.

We skip over user-submitted questions this week because we had a content-filled episode, but we do answer a quick Table Topics about our lifelong heroes!

Please every one listen to and enjoy the episode, and let us know what you think in the comments!

KH-Vids staff member @libregkd attended the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix Launch Event in California last week and wrote up a great, detailed report of what went down there. Unfortunately attendees were prohibited from taking photo or video of the Kingdom Hearts 3 goodies show there or the fan video, and we're still waiting on Square to share the former with us poor unfortunates who could not attend.

Happily, event VIP @DangostreetGames took a ton of photos throughout the event and was kind enough to share them with us! You can check out his imgur album with captions below, and get a taste of what it was like to be there yourself.
