I'm a day late, forgive me for my crimes.

This week @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn come at you with yet another spoilercast! For those who aren't familiar with the concept, on the KH-Vids Podcast we occasionally decide to do special episodes focused on a certain video game, movie, book, etc. in all its spoiler-y glory. This time around we choose to focus on The Order: 1886, a PlayStation 4 exclusive from Ready at Dawn Studios. The game was hyped considerably by Sony and the KH-Vids Podcast (mostly @Misty) to a controversial release.

We begin by discussing the negative press surrounding the game, mostly centered around its length. From there we discuss our reactions to the story and the characters, our favorite moments in the game, and its graphical splendor (and newly added Photo Mode). Naturally, we also cover the gameplay of the title, particularly its awful stealth sequences. Finally, we discuss the possibilities for the future of The Order as both a sequel and extended series.

Not interested in hearing about The Order? No worries! Skip ahead to 1:12:30 for our user-submitted questions! @Quilligan asks about our religious views and has us discuss the new Final Fantasy Dissidia title coming to arcades and the PlayStation 4, and @Shu forces us to consider a world without KH-Vids.

While discussing the upcoming Dissidia Final Fantasy reboot with Famitsu, the Kingdom hearts series director, Tetsuya Nomura, was asked about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts event at D23, and he had the following to say:

Whether or not this has anything to do with a cancelled smartphone game Disney was developing is unknown. Perhaps a possible localization of X[chi]?

Thanks to a suggestion by @Sebax and the hard work of @libregkd, we're really excited to roll out a new feature to our site. For years now, users have been able to specify their gender in their profiles; the gender options, however, have been limited to 'Male' or 'Female'. While there has also been the third option of 'Unspecified,' these options reflect a very limited view of gender and supports a gender binary that would potentially exclude many of our members.

A podcast episode? On time!?

This week @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn are joined by @al215 and @Llave to discuss some of the recent news coming out of Nintendo in the past few days. Their new Legend of Zelda title, slated for release on the Wii U, has been pushed back into 2016 and will not make an appearance at E3 in June, they're entering the smartphone market in a partnership with popular Japanese developer DeNA, and are working on a new mystery console codenamed the Nintendo NX. Given their precarious state in the gaming market, and continuous decline in the last few years, could Nintendo be headed for trouble? Only time will tell!

We also pay a quick homage to Hideo Kojima's forthcoming departure from Konami and wonder what that will mean for the Metal Gear Solid series.

As always, we answer user-submitted questions! @Shu gets spiritual with us, @Graxe pitches the plot to Castaway, and @Amaury asks about our first gaming experiences.

Wednesday episode because we had some server troubles last night!

This week @Kairi ♥ joins @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn to share her experience with the Final Fantasy XV demo that released with the PS4 remaster of Final Fantasy Type-0. We begin, as always, by mentioning what little Kingdom Hearts news and updates we have, which includes speculation on what we'll see later this year at D23 Expo Japan 2015.

From there we go through the entirety of the demo, which focuses on the main cast of characters saving money to fix their car by hunting down Behemoth. We cover our thoughts on the gameplay, which borrows heavily from the Kingdom Hearts series, technical issues within the demo, our thoughts on the characters and voice acting, the Ramuh summon, and how the demo has helped (or hurt) our feelings about the long-anticipated title.

Next up, we answer user-submitted questions! @Shu asks us where babies come from, an anonymous sender asks what non-video game franchises we'd like to see enter the gaming medium, and @Graxe teases @Misty about her struggles with Seymour Flux in Final Fantasy X.

Thanks everyone for listening, and please participate in the podcast by either following the links below or leaving us a comment with your thoughts on the demo and your answers to our user-submitted questions!
