In a surprise announcement, Kingdom Hearts 4 was revealed to be under development. While it might not be surprising this long running franchise is getting another game, it was more the playable in-game footage that had people talking. Of course, was this REALLY in game footage, or a target render displaying UI elements? Only time will tell for sure, and how much time this game will need to come out is anyone's guess. The existence of this game though lends a lot of chatter to some prior rumors that a GeForce Now "leak" brought us, could a FF9 remaster be far behind? We talk about all this and much more on another week of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!

Isn't it weird when gaming executives try to tell us that we just don't "get" things they try to push in games? Yeah, another big gaming executive is at it again, this time on the implementation of blockchain technologies in games that a minority of people are asking for. We discuss why this idea just seems to not go away and comes up way too often in the gaming news as of late. Don't worry, there's plenty other gaming news to get into as well that DOESN'T involve acronyms beginning with N and ending with T.
