Hello and welcome to another Side-Quest episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone! In this episode, we’re diving back in again to the MCU, to Kingdom Hearts 3, and maybe even to Persona 5. Madelyn’s making progress on her backlog, which makes Emma embarrassed about her own. Kingdom Hearts 3 DLC news came out after we recorded this. Uh, other stuff. Just listen, why don’t you?
As always, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and on the Pandora app (or head over to our episodes page for even more options). Or just listen below!

Yup, that’s right, KH3 Critical Mode came out, and it is predictably whipping Emma’s butt. Clickbait Boyfriend is now mocking her for having died so many times on the first Heartless fight when he only died twice. It’s truly the dark times. Meanwhile, Madelyn finished up The World Ends With You and is now returning to the first Assassin’s Creed in an attempt to clear her backlog before Japan. How admirable. Emma pointedly does not look at Final Fantasy IX, The Walking Dead: Final Season, or God of War sitting on her shelf.
You know what Persona 5 needed? More hours. It definitely needed more hours. It also definitely needed a human Morgana. Oh god. Please. I will give anything if this human Morgana is some kind of nightmare. I can’t do this, Atlas. You can’t keep turning your mascots into real boys. And if you do, they should be small child-sized gremlins.
Anyway, we’re also excited for Persona 5 Scramble. Probably more excited for that one actually. Give me disposable Shadows to lay to waste.
So, Emma saw Endgame. She gives as vague of a review as she can possibly give…which is honestly probably the best she could muster anyway, because she’s not really sure how she feels about it. There were good things. There were bad things. And there were things that felt…not quite fitting. But it still left her excited about the future of the MCU. Madelyn nods along because she doesn’t follow these movies.
Emma’s been slacking, okay. I’m sorry! Anyway, we’ve got a new Clickbait Boyfriend. Coming this week on Monday will be our joint Kingdom Hearts 3 blog, then we’ll get a new Split Screen this Wednesday. Meanwhile, Emma’s been livetweeting her experience through Critical Mode (see above), so you can follow her on Twitter if you’re interested in her pain. She also tweets about other things. She’s pretty cool. I would know. I’m Emma. Hello.
