Episode Notes

Oh boy, here come the Sharlayan Dropouts to corrupt the students hanging out around the Last Stand. This week, Nadia, Victor, and Mike get together and talk all about the huge thumbprints Final Fantasy IV has left over Final Fantasy XIV, from 1.0 to Endwalker. Why is FFIV so lovingly referenced in FFXIV, and why so often? How will FFIV continue to influence the 6.x patches? The crew has more topics of discussion than Namingway has names.

Spoiler Alert Level: Yellow. There is discussion about Shadowbringers, Endwalker, and the 6.x patches, but references to story events are vague.
