This week on LBR, the cast sits down to discuss the unfulfilled promises that Square-Enix has made to us over the years. Also on the show, we see the return of dramatic shit post readings and catch up on your e-mails!. So whether it be summoner egis or a backdoor API, join Aniero, Juxta, Nika, and Eskalia as they discuss the validity, feasibility, and history behind some of SE’s most ill fated ideas.
The spoiler embargo has finally been lifted now that Nika has returned from Japan so the crew enlists the help of friend of the show Ethys Asher to lend his expertise and discuss Heavensward lore and story up to Patch 3.3. Curious to know what the ruins inside Ozma are all about? Or what the landmasses in 4.0 could possibly be? We break it all down for you in this episode of Limit Break Radio!

Limit Break Radio is rocking a skeleton crew on today’s show missing Juxtaposition, Kallo and Kooky. Aniero, Nika and Eskalia hold down the fort with Poppa Woody filling in for our missing hosts.

We’ve had a week with Patch 3.3 and it’s time to see how well Square-Enix delivered.

IT’S NEARLY PATCH DAY LBRMY! As you dive into the finale of the Dragonsong war, let the hosts of Limit Break Radio accompany you. Get the low down on all the new features added from MSQ to Auto Translate additions, plus, Yoshida speaks about future content in a Famitsu Translation that further builds hype for Deep Dungeon and…dare we dream it…Diadem.
With the release of the Patch 3.3 Trailer, we are able to glean a bit more about what to expect in Revenge of the Horde. The biggest clues come in the form of the few sneak peaks of the Main Storyline Quest. The crew theorize and discuss what the end of the Dragonsong War could look like and what it means going forward. Plus, they talk a bit about what kinds of plot twists they’d like to see in FFXIV, but likely never will.
With Patch 3.3 looming on the horizon, the crew starts to dissect what we can expect on patch day. The treasure hunting event Aquapolis takes a front seat in the discussion as Kallo voices concerns about the finality and originality of certain aspects. Aniero expresses disinterest for the new dungeons and the crew in general throws praise at older design philosophies. In an unexpected turn of events, Nika calls out the guys and gets triggered which prompts a massive blowout between her and the guys. Plus, a long lost figure of mystery appears…who could it be? Tune in to find out.
With the ending of The Heavensward music contest last month, the crew take the time to listen to several entries as well as visit some Limit Breaking Music alumni. Plus, the crew discuss the alleged PvP speed hacking “epidemic”. Is this an “out of control game ruining mess” or are bad players hiding behind accusing better players of speedhacking? And, as always, your calls and emails.
