Episode 150 – Squaring your Circles

We celebrate 150 episodes with the amazing and incomparable Kali aka Eskalia, making her return as a guest host after 5 years. We discuss the recently released Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters 1 – 3, the leaked release date for FF 4 – 6, talk about the success of the online FFXIV fan celebration LunarCon, and the upcoming Moogle Market hosted by friend of the show Kei at the Moogle Cafe. We then delve into a more serious discussion around the pending lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, talk about the pervasive toxic culture surrounding many game developers, and ponder what it would mean for us as players if something were to happen to a fandom we loved such as Final Fantasy. We hope you enjoy this slightly different but very important topic.
