Happy New Year From The LBR Crew

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015

Hello Eorzea! The Limit Break Radio Crew would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! The entire crew were together for the New Years festivities, spending time with one another, but also spending time with a few lucky viewers on the Limit Break Radio Twitch stream. An unannounced stream started shortly before the East Coast “Ball Drop” and for a few hours the LBR crew faced off in Super Smash Bros for the Wii-U. Those that were fortunate enough to catch the stream were treated to appearances from former Limit Break Radio personalities Argetlam and Sayl. Nika and her husband Suren were also in attendance making the most LBR hosts in one place on a long time, and the first time that the four original hosts: Aniero, Kallo, Sayl and Argetlam, were all together for almost 6 years. We thought the occasion was worth marking.

Here’s a video of the last match of 2014, our New Years countdown, and then our first match of 2015. Come watch your favorite LBR hosts beat the crap out of each other. Classic.

We will have more highlights from the Smash Years Eve party including Sayl showing of his skills and Aniero, somehow taking a match, posted at our YouTube page in the next few days. Consider subscribing!

Limit Break Radio Update! Giveaways, FanFest, and #BringSusan

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Hey Limit Break Radio listeners, so as you can tell we do not have a new show today. We apologize. This is for a few reasons: Final Fantasy XIV news has been slow as of late. Being that we’re building toward Tokyo Game Show and the 2014 Fan Fest, information and news has been, understandably, scant. At the moment we’re considering having our next live show after Patch 2.38 which should drop somewhere around September 18th. We’re also considering a range of topics for our discussion segment, but if you would like to make a suggestion we invite you to do so by sending us an email at hosts@limitbreakradio.com or tweeting us @limitbreakradio. And as always you can join in on the discussion by tuning in live at Twitch.tv and connecting with us on Skype by adding the account limitbreakradio.

Don’t forget we have 2 giveaways going on, the first from our friend at @FFXIV_PTFinders who donated a 60 day FFXIV time card. To enter into that drawing all you have to do is tweet @mattalos and @popcicle with the hashtag #BringSusan to encourage the NA Community Team to bring Susan Calloway as a performer to the 2014 Fan Fest. Our second giveaway comes from listener Zoe Daybreaker who gave us a $20 PSN card to anyone who emails us at hosts@limitbreakradio.com to tell us what you like or don’t like about the show, you will also be entered into a drawing for the PSN card. We’ll be announcing the winners on episode 10.

Fan Fest 2014 is fast approaching and Limit Break Radio is doing what we can to finalize our plans. Aniero and Nika will be in attendance on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will be equipped with mobile recording gear, recording events and player reactions throughout the day. If you’re going to be at Fan Fest please try and find us and share your opinions about the events, announcements, and performances and maybe you will make an appearance on Limit Break Radio. We also intend on recording wrap ups for the days events, which will be like a mini-LBR live from the convention floor. If past Fan Fests are any indication we’ll only be doing wrap ups for Friday and Saturday but without a schedule of events, that could very well change. Additionally, Limit Break Radio will be completely mobile this year, meaning we don’t have a booth or access to a stable internet connection. It is for this reason that we cannot guarantee that we will be able to bring you live updates from the show floor or confirm the exact location of the recording of the wrap up. We will be live tweeting and maybe even live blogging from Fan Fest but in terms of the audio we produce, there’s a good chance we’ll only be able to produce and release that once the event is finished.

In addition to this, LBR is currently discussing the option of throwing some kind of after party in downtown Las Vegas on Saturday night. So after the convention wraps up you can take all of that energy and adrenaline and burn it off in the hottest party city in America with the coolest podcasters this side of Mor Dhona! Keep an eye to LimitBreakRadio.com as well as our Twitter and Facebook pages for more details as they’re confirmed.

Limit Break Radio Officially Goes LIVE

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Hey there LBR listeners! It’s Aniero here with an exciting announcement about the future of Limit Break Radio. First, I’d like to say thank you for your continued support and listenership as we get the show back up and running. We’re having a great time doing the show again and the feedback we’ve been getting from you guys has been really great. The emails, tweets, Facebook messages, iTunes reviews, Reddit PM’s, /tells and live stream chats have been fantastic. Clearly, Limit Break Radio has the best listeners on the internet. And because we think our listeners are so awesome we want our listeners to become more involved with Limit Break Radio.

So it is with great pleasure that I announce that starting with Episode 6 Limit Break Radio will be live streaming the show over Twitch.tv

So while we think Tweeting and emailing and Facebooking with the show are all great ways to get involved we here at Limit Break Radio would like to take this one step further. Because the show will be live streamed we would also like to invite our listeners to call in to the show over Skype and/or a regular telephone* and actively add to the discussions being had on the air. The process is pretty simple.

First, tune in at the designated day/time of a live LBR show at our official Twitch.tv page
Then, either send a Skype message to ‘limitbreakradio’ with your name or character name and server OR dial 810-515-8715
From there you will be placed on hold until we can take your call

Easy, no? Well, easy for you. It’s actually kind of technically complicated on our end. But it’s not like this is the first time we’ve done this, Limit Break Radio hosted a call-in show back in 2007 with Limit Break Radio’s Spectacular Annual Platinum Extravaganza Edition Call-In Bonanza Special. We had so much fun doing that episode and have always wanted to incorporate it into the overall show. This seems like a good time to do that. We look forward to hearing from you.

We’re not JUST live streaming the main talk show, we’re also doing occasional game play streams on our Twitch.tv channel, which we recommend subscribing to so you’ll be alerted of these streaming sessions. As as a result of doing these streams and learning the streaming software, the show will take on a slightly more visual element. We will still have the podcast and the iTunes and RSS feeds and the show won’t change much from what we already do, but checking out the show on Twitch.tv or YouTube will be more visually entertaining the the current videos that only feature the LBR Logo as a visual.

The way we record the show, we record one long show and cut it into 3 parts and release those over a series of weeks, but for those that tune in to the live show: you will get to hear all 3 parts live as they’re recorded. No waiting a week between episode parts. Bonus!

Last thing, I swear. We’ve updated the LBR website to include a Watch section where you can find our live Twitch stream, info on the next planned broadcast date/time and the Twitch chat. We’ve also updated the Listen page to make XIV shows easier to sort and find as well as our Links page and About page to contain current information.

Once again I want to thank everyone for their support of Limit Break Radio. It’s been a great couple of months and we look forward to bringing you more great Final Fantasy XIV podcasting!

-Aniero Grigori and the crew of Limit Break Radio

*Additional phone fees may apply. It could depend on your phone plan. Limit Break Radio is not responsible for any charges related to calling in to the show.
