Yeah yeah Wednesday podcast because I'm a piece of garbage.
Hello everyone and welcome to yet another episode of the KH-Vids Podcast. Your usual hosts -- @Misty, @Llave, and @libregkd -- are joined by @Calxiyn and @Plums to discuss video game graphics, at the behest of @Eric Luna !
As per usual we begin with some Kingdom Hearts news and updates, including the official translation of the Re:Coded secret movie, the new Introducing the Magic trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.5, and the announcement that Kingdom Hearts 3 is now running on Unreal Engine 4. The latter piece of news feeds into our larger discussion, where we cite some of the games that have impressed us over the years, the influence of MoCap and facial capture in video games, the uncanny valley, the benefits of stylized graphics versus photorealistic, and finally the influence of environments and environment design on a gaming experience.
After that we move along into our user-submitted questions! @Eric Luna has us reminisce about childhood, @Graxe asks what we would add to a KHV Giferator (the original @Mish pic is cited, along with Kairi ♥ licking a certain Kingdom Hearts character, and @Stardust 's creepy doll), @Hayabusa makes us fuse with another KH-Vids member, and we build a special Halloween playlist for @Sweeney Tummer !
It's a fun filled episode and we encourage everyone to listen, comment, and participate in the podcast!
