Every so often something affects the entire crew of the show enough to make us want to do an all hands deep dive into it.  We had been waiting for the last few stragglers to finish up the Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers content before recording our big spoiler show, and over the last few weeks that happened.  Tongiht we have the full normal cast as well as a friend of the show Shiana for a sit down as we crawl through the story of this expansion. Unfortunately, we realized there was no way to cram it into a single episode so we will continue next week with the second part.


Topics Discussed:

  • Final Fantasy XIV
    • End of Stormblood
    • Shadowbringers Expansion
