Tonight we have Belghast, Ashgar, Thalen, Grace and Tam with Kodra having fun without the rest of us in GenCon. Once again we return to the standard format of the show talking about the games we have been playing over the last week. As always the bulk of us have been spending time in Final Fantasy XIV juggling leveling, the Law and Esoteric grind, and Alexander. Ashgar managed to get his Paladin and Belghast his Dragoon to 60, giving them both a DPS and Tank at max level. Grace has been focused on trying to play catch up on her relic weapon and is now in the midst of the nexus light grind.
In non FFXIV news Ashgar spent the week working on yet another play through of Final Fantasy V for the Four Job Fiesta. Thalen spent time delving back into Kingdom Hearts getting the bug to replay it after seeing all the recent buzz surrounding Kingdom Hearts III. Grace is using Blaugust as a good reason to write some Wildstar blogs, focusing on a guide to the Veteran Shiphand missions as a start. Tam has been moving deeper into Anime and spent a good chunk of the week watching various shows, and also started playing the remastered Sword Art Online game on the Playstation 4. Belghast talks a bit about the current state of Skyforge, and his journey into StormHold the time locked Everquest II server. Bel also talks about his recent binge of Netflix watching including Sense8 and Bojack Horseman.
Finally we get on a discussion where the title comes from, talking about how each of us goes through phases where we need to extract ourselves from the world and how it helps so much to have supportive friends that understand when you are going through one of these phases.
