Sharlayan Dropouts Episode 3: FFXIV Live Letter Discourse and Sad Scholar Memes

Nadia, Victor, and Mike talk about the very lengthy Final Fantasy XIV Live Letter, and what it all means for the upcoming Endwalker expansion. That gaping hole in the moon...it's not going to get any bigger, right? Right.

Episode Notes

It’s a new month, which means the Sharlayan Dropouts have huddled themselves in the smoke hole again. (They just keyed Fourchenault’s Chocobo chariot; best they lay low for a while.) Nadia, Victor, and Mike talk about the very lengthy Final Fantasy XIV Live Letter, and what it all means for the upcoming Endwalker expansion. That gaping hole in the moon…it’s not going to get any bigger, right? Right.

Also in this episode: Dragoons are pole dancing again, the Twins are overdue for their Elezen growth spurt, and Nadia learns you can’t just breed brother and sister Chocobos in twisted eugenics experiments like you can in FFVII.

Spoiler Level: Yellow. The front end of the episode is largely spoiler-free, but we loosen up in the back half. Here are some handy-dandy time stamps:

Up to 16:36 – News about the FFXV event, and discussion what we’ve been doing in-game. Some talk about raids, etc, but no major discussion about story events connected to them.

Up to to 43:40 – Talk about the Live Letter and changes to FFXIV’s classes. Some very minor spoilers that involve how each class has evolved since ARR.

From 43:40 onward – Free discussion about Endwalker and the story beats leading up to it.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?
