Hey all you kingdom hearts kids! Welcome to another year of our Secret Santa event! As you may be aware, DPWolf was our leader and esteemed Head Santa, spreading cherry and merriment throughout the nice kids, while punishing the bad with coal (and fire). However, Wolfie's passed the torch and reins of the sleigh onto me, and I intend to do my best to honor the tradition she started.

WHAT IS SECRET SANTA
Secret Santa is an event we host every year, in which you guys sign up and get to make presents for each other for the holiday season! Previous Secret Santa threads may be found by clicking the following hyperlinks:


PRESENTS
Presents are anything that you can make online and send to the person.

Examples include, but are not limited to:
  • Artwork
  • AMVs
  • Signatures/Avatars
  • Writing (Poems, Stories)
  • Pictures
  • Other things of this nature

You can make one big present, or do a bunch of small ones. But please, don't wait till the last minute and throw one little avatar together. You're expected to both give and receive, so make something you would be happy to receive in turn. On Christmas Day (December 25th), I will make a thread in which you can post your gifts for the person you're paired with. If for some reason you are unable to do it this day, you can send it in a message to your assigned member early, or, alternatively, have until New Year's Day (January 1st) to post it.

RULES
  • Digital presents only! This means nothing of monetary value, such as online giftcards and the like. LIKES ARE NOT A GIFT.
  • Keep it appropriate for KHV, if you need some help with that either look at the rules or message me.
  • Signups will go from today until Friday, November 28th.
  • If you sign up, you can’t back out once everyone is paired up (extreme cases permitting).
  • Gifts will be given on Christmas Day, but let me know in advance if you know you’re going somewhere so I can let your Secret Santa know when the best time to exchange gifts would be ahead of time.
  • In order to participate, you need to be an active member for at least a month, OR have 30-50 posts INCLUDING posts in areas without post count. This is just to make sure that you are an active member and won’t disappear on your Secret Santa.
  • Have fun!

After taking the last week off, your podcast hosts @Misty and @libregkd are joined by @Calxiyn and @Peace and War to celebrate the recently passed N7 Day, a special celebration of all things Mass Effect!

Before we kick into that, we address some changes coming to the podcast -- namely noting the departure of our host @Llave from the team, and how we'll be filling his seat, as well as some schedule changes for the coming weeks. We also discuss some Kingdom Hearts news, the most important of which is the announcement of the new Kingdom Hearts Collector's Edition pack with Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5.

From there we geek out about Mass Effect -- be warned, spoilers are rampant! We cover what's been announced thus far about the next entry in the Mass Effect series and what we want to see in it, the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition and how that will affect Mass Effect, BioWare's in-progress Shadow Realms project, the ending of Mass Effect 3, the possibility of a Mass Effect trilogy remaster, and more! As expected, @Misty waxes poetic over Knights of the Old Republic and her Liara love affair.

We go a bit over time with Mass Effect, but stick around for some quick user-submitted questions! @Graxe conducts an insect survey, @Plums commits Question Fraud, and we pull out Table Topics once again!

Please everyone listen, enjoy, and leave us a comment!

With less than a month before Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix's release in North America, Square-Enix and Disney decided to treat a handful of lucky fans to a very special treat. On December 1st (one day before the official release), a private showcase will be held at the Walt Disney Studio Lot in Burbank, CA. Tickets will only be given by invitation. The event will be held at two different time slots, the first one being from 2:30PM-5:30PM, with the next one being from 6:30PM-9:30PM, and will include a new trailer (KH3?), allow fans to purchase the remaster a day early along with other KH merchandise, and the chance to meet with unannounced special guests. For those wishing to attend this event, tickets can be obtained in one of the following three ways:

Utada Hikaru's new album to feature cover art by Tetsuya Nomura

As part of her 15th anniversary celebration, Utada Hikaru will put out two major releases: a cover collaboration album featuring various artists as well as a collection of singles from her career. Both albums will release in Japan on December 9th, though no official tracklisting has been revealed just yet.

While Utada has contributed two fantastic songs to the Kingdom Hearts series, Hikari/Simple & Clean and Passion/Sanctuary, shortly after the release of Kingdom Hearts II she seemed to have severed her contract with Disney, much to our dismay. Utada Hikaru's upcoming albums, however, will feature art by none other than Tetsuya Nomura! Check out the full image by clicking the thumbnail below, and check the bottom left corner to see a a Kingdom Hearts-style command menu in the water!

Nothing has been officially announced, but this seems like a great way to tease Utada's return to the Kingdom Hearts series. Will we see a new, original song of hers for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III? Might they use a previously released track of hers that has yet to appear in the game (my bid is on Heart Station)? Or is Nomura just doing a favor for a friend? Let us know what you think!
