For the past couple of months, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to see what we can do to deliver a better, and much more frequent podcast for the Final Fantasy XIV community.
Our schedule for January is listed below.
We’ll be increasing our coverage for patches across all of Gamer Escape. You’ll start to see it with next week’s patch 4.5. The first podcast after a patch drops will be hands on discussion. Afterwards, the second podcast after a patch will be a spoilercast where we’ll talk about the story in its entirety. That same podcast will also feature something new for us: patch reviews.
A patch review will contain the opinions of five different people. This panel will include the hosts of Aetheryte Radio, as well as one other person. For patch 4.5 we’re happy to announce that Mr. Happy will be joining us for both our hands on episode, and for our review episode. The patch review will premiere on the podcast, and then posted in written form afterwards.
Here’s a quick run down of what you can expect from our patch reviews. We’re going to break down the patch into five categories:
- Main Scenario Quests
Each person will give a short breakdown for each category, awarding it a maximum of 4 points, which will add up to a total review score of 100 points.
This is only the tip of the iceberg for us. As we move further into 2019 we’ll have more new segments tied to both the podcast and the front page, not only giving you more content, but also different ways to consume it.
Please look forward to it.
