Here’s a sneak peak at what’s in store on the 2nd part of Episode 2 of LBR:ARR. Juxta makes a startling confession…
Archive for ‘News Item’
Hey Limit Break Radio listeners! It’s Aniero here. I know you’re expecting a new show today with it being Monday and all. I regret to inform you that we have no new show today. We were trying to do a Limit Breaking News for Patch 2.1 but due to a busier then normal holiday schedule we were unable to squeeze a show in. It’s disappointing because we had a lot of say about the ridiculous housing prices. At this point we’re focusing on trying to experience the new content so that when we get back to recording new episodes in 2014 we can at least have context to what we’re talking about. We’re also in the process of upgrading a few pieces of equipment that should assist us in streaming the show live. The upside to this is that you, dear listeners, have longer to submit your sexy screenshots to our #FappingTheRealm contest for a chance to win a $10 Ultimate Game Card. The submissions we’ve got have been awesome so far. We’ll have some Mumble segments coming your way over the holiday so be on the lookout for those. Our next episode has been scheduled and will be released Monday January 6th 2014. So stay warm, enjoy the holidays and get good and drunk. I know that what we’ll be doing.
Let me be the first to welcome you all back! I can’t tell you how excited we are to be back, and I’m posting today to make a few introductions and to answer a couple questions I know are floating out there.
So, let’s start with the question that I know is everyone’s mind:
Why am I not listening to LBR:R Episode 1 right now?!
The answer to that is simple… it’s coming! Our goal is to provide a higher class podcast than the original LBR, and to this end, we are actually going to have a recording studio! We’ve had a couple delays moving our equipment out of Norg, and we’re running about a week behind where we anticipated we would be by this point. That said, we’re still hoping to have episode 1 out in October, but if not, we’ll definitely have some other content out to you…
Which leads into the next question: What the hell am I supposed to do until then?!
Don’t worry! Just because the first episode of LBR:R isn’t out yet, doesn’t mean there won’t be anything on the site! Our hosts intend to work on their own projects (both text and audio), and will post them as they come out. More on that later in the post!
Okay okay, I guess I can deal with that. So who’s hosting this thing?!
We’ll be running a three man hosting crew this time round, and without further adieu, here they are!
Hosting the show will be Aniero Grigori, the voice of Final Fantasy podcasting. He’s based off of Sargantanas server and runs warrior as his main job. You all know him as the host of the original LBR, and he says he’s looking forward to melding the classic formula in with an edgier new-age model to provide the best FF entertainment on the internet.
Co-hosting will be Eskalia Ryumasa, making his return to the network where it all began. His main job is Dragoon, and he’s based off the Balmung server. He got his start hosting Voices of Vana’diel on the original LBR network, and looks forward to skipping company events with the excuse of having to podcast. When asked to describe his ideal podcasting experience, he replied “It should be an orgy for the ears.” The interviewer reportedly refused to ask anymore questions.
And continuing the world’s longest, least-fulfilling, and most certainly unpaid internship will be Juxtaposition! He’s a Paladin based off of Sargantanas server and likes getting caught in the rain. He reminds us that he’s still the best, and is quote “Still awesome.” After a successful run on the original Limit Break Radio, he looks forward to bringing his brand of fun and excitement to the new show. None of us are sure what that means, but we’ve updated our vaccination records just to be safe!
What’s the motto for the show?
Good or bad, we’re going to say what we want, when we want, about who we want. If they don’t like it, tough.
That seems a bit extreme…
Your mom seems a bit extreme. Get over it.
And how often do we get to listen to you guys?
We’re not yet certain how often we’ll be producing episodes, it’s just not something we’ll be able to pinpoint until we dive in and see what kind of time commitment each episode is going to take. What we can tell you is that whatever we decide on will be a regular schedule. There will be a set day that episodes come out so you can always plan your LBR fix well in advance.
Why should I listen to you guys instead of some other FF based podcasts out there?
Because we’ll actually be entertaining.
Is it too late to apply to be a host/guest/intern?
Guests were a large part of the original LBR, and we don’t intend to cut them out of the new format. While our static crew is now assembled, we’ll need guests for certain episodes and events. Once we have things up and running, look for further posts on how you can apply to be a guest.
Didn’t you mention something about other posts on the site earlier?
Oh yea! Our goal is to have content posted to the site regularly, even if it’s not a new episode of LBR:R. Eskalia is planning on a weekly editorial, and more things will continue to pop up as our hosts get settled in. We all work full time, but will do our best to keep content fresh on the site.
How can I contribute to the show?
Ah yes, this is an important one. At launch time, there will be no “Starbreakers” equivalent, and we will NOT be accepting donations. This may change down the line, but for now, it is our goal to provide the best FREE entertainment we can. If you really want to give a donation or contribute, we cannot thank you enough for your support, but please keep your money. The best way you can help us out is to help the site grow. Go to your linkshell, your friends list, your facebook, your twitter, anywhere you can help promote us and spread the word that Limit Break Radio is back! If everyone brings in two new listeners, it wont be long at all before we have the the largest (in addition to already having the best) community out there!
Should we still send e-mails and what not?
Hell yes! We’ll still read e-mails on the air, and a couple of our planned segments are going to require your input. If you’ve seen someone do something outstanding, send an email and let us know and they may get a special shout-out on the air! On the flip-side, if you’re witness to someone making a gigantic toolbox of themselves, send us a screenshot and they can be held accountable! We’ll have a number of segments and a variety of ways that listeners will be able to interact and participate in the show. Just make sure you’re following us on Twitter and Facebook and keep an eye out here at limitbreakradio.com for the latest news and announcements about the show.
Well, that’s all the information I have to pass along at the moment! Please keep and eye on our facebook page as well as our twitter page for more information and hopefully soon, the release date of episode 1! We’re so excited to be back, and look forward to entertaining you all for years to come. Until then, peace out.

What it is ain’t exactly clear
Kept you waiting, huh?
So, every time I post something to the Limit Break Radio Facebook page I will inevitably get a ton of messages asking if I have any intention of bringing LBR back from ‘hiatus’ status. So, I thought it might be a good time to give you guys a little update.
Back around the time LBR stopped was when my time spent on FFXI hit a low point. I had no job, I had to move out of my apartment and, at the time, it looked like the only new events FFXI would support would be Voidwalker NMs and rehashed older events like Dynamis, Slavage or Nyzul. That didn’t seem like very much fun for me, so I stopped logging in. Because I stopped logging in, I didn’t feel I could speak about the game in the same way I would if I were logging in and playing. I happen to think this does a serious disservice to listeners. Hosts must have a connection with their subject matter. For a while, I just had no words to say about Final Fantasy XI.
Of course, that was then, this is now.
In the last two years I’ve made a few attempts to get back into Final Fantasy XI. I leveled Red Mage to 99 (well 98 technically I guess), made a brief run at getting an Empyrean Weapon with Eskalia, and transferred to Ragnarok with the help of Hyshio. Each time, my interest in the game would wain and I would stop logging in again. But, I have also found a great job that I love and takes up a lot of my time. I’ve hosted some other podcasts. I’m looking to move into an actual house and start a new chapter of my life and it feels really really good. I’ve also felt the FFXI itch for a few weeks and started logging back in to start trying some of the new Seekers of Adoulin content. I just got my first Delve weapon and have started leveling a Rune Fencer (lol, I know, I know). I am finding I have words to say about Final Fantasy XI again. It feels good.
I think about Limit Break Radio a lot. I miss the community, I miss reading emails and tweets. I’ve toyed with the idea of making new Limit Break Radio episodes. But I have to admit to all of you, I’m a little apprehensive. I know that, if LBR were to come back, I could never possibly be the same. It might not even come close to the old shows. But maybe that’s not a bad thing? Limit Break Radio has already had a few different incarnations so maybe a whole new approach should be taken. I’m not sure yet.
So I want to know what you all think. How many people out there would listen to new Limit Break Radio episodes? I also worry about the future of Final Fantasy XI. It’s no secret that FFXI’s population is hurting. Even with SoA’s release, the game seems really empty at times. And with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn so close to release it will inevitably pull players away from FFXI in the future. What do you think FFXI’s future looks like? Are you just killing time until ARR? What are your thoughts on SoA? Please share your thoughts through emails, tweets or Facebook posts.
I want to thank everyone that has sent me messages, emails, Facebook posts and Tweets sharing their fond memories of the show and the cast. It’s always nice to be reminded that something you helped make meant enough to somebody that they take time out of their day to tell you how much they liked it. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.
I don’t want to get too many peoples hopes up that Limit Break Radio is definitely coming back. I am considering my options and want to know what you think.
Thank you all so much

Hi LBR fans! How’s everything going? Long time no talk, I know. I wanted to take a moment and explain what’s been happening here at Limit Break Radio. I know we haven’t released anything and other then brief vague statements on our Facebook and Twitter pages. I apologize to our fans who still want a LBR to listen to. Here’s where we’re at: none of the hosts of LBR still play Final Fantasy XI. Some of it has to do with lack of content on XI’s part, some of it has to do with the financial realities that the hosts are facing. But the fact still stands that most of the LBR hosts have no actual connection to XI. I’m hesitant to do a show with hosts that don’t play the game because those never work out well. I think things would start to get really negative on our part, and that’s not really what LBR is all about.
I feel, in LBR’s time, that we covered a great deal of content regarding Final Fantasy XI. I’m really proud of what we accomplished in the 5 years we have done this podcast. I’m just sorry we couldn’t keep it going longer. But I’ll be real honest. I’m burnt out on MMOs. So, I need a break; and I need to focus on what is really important: finding a new job. I’ve been 2 years out of work and I really need to find a job. Radio is a tough industry and it’s never been harder to catch a break in this industry then right now. I want to thank you all for your support of LBR over the years. It’s really been because of you that the show lasted as long as it did. Thank you so so much!
But, I will not say this is the end of LBR. Not yet. I feel like Square-Enix might have some tricks up their sleeves to bring players back to XI. I might get a job (and thus disposable income) tomorrow and start playing again. The future is very unpredictable and I’m no fortune teller. I’m kind of bummed, I even made a new intro for the show and never got to use it. Maybe we will one day.
So, I’m officially putting LBR on ‘hiatus’ status until further notice. Once again, thank you fans for your support over the years.
Hey all, Aniero here…
Just wanted to let you know we’ve been planning and trying to record Limit Break Radio’s 65th episode but having a lot of scheduling problems. The plan is to have a roundtable discussion regarding Empyrean Weapons as well as talk about the new Final Fantasy XI October to March roadmap. However, due to the number of guests and an unfortunate power outage at the studio, we are having problems finding a day to do the show. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for an announcement about the live show. We apologize for the delay.

I want to take a moment to thank the generous support YOU gave to Limit Break Radio in our time of need. We stated our need and YOU answered the call! Thank you so much!
There have been a few donations that have gone unclaimed. We want to make sure everyone who has contributed to Limit Break Radio has proper access to their Starbreaker exclusive content. If you have made a donation but still haven’t received your Starbreaker benefits yet please send an email to email@example.com and include your donation date, your email address, and your Limit Break Radio forum account name.
Lastly, we’re currently planning on recording Limit Break Radio episode 63 this upcoming Tuesday. At this time we don’t have the ability to stream the show live on Gamer Escape Radio, but there’s a slight chance we could have things fixed before Tuesday, stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest on our PC status and also make sure to follow @RadioEsc on Twitter for the latest info about Gamer Escape Radio
Once again we’d like to thank you listeners for your continued strong support for Limit Break Radio. Keep listening!
Early this morning, the power supply unit of Limit Break Radio’s main editing and broadcasting computer died suddenly. This poses a few problems. Limit Break Radio can still record shows, but without our main computer, editing will take longer and live streaming will be impossible.
As we said on the last episode of Limit Break Radio, we will be changing the Starbreaker extended content program and start phasing out donations, but there’s still time to be grandfathered into the program with a donation to Limit Break Radio today. The new extended content program will include extended content from other show produced by Aniero as well as all future extended content from shows produced by Aniero and possibly others.
It’s because of listeners like you that have supported Limit Break Radio in the past that we have been able to continue operating. We want to thank everyone who has been generous enough to provide LBR with a donation.
But if you listen to Limit Break Radio and you’ve been on the fence in the past don’t pass this up! We could really use the support to fix our machine and you get the satisfaction of knowing you helped us out of a tight spot AND tons of cool bonus content!
