Chic Pixel Plus: Episode 6 – Final Fantasy XIV: A Wallet Emptied

Come one, come all, for a very special themed episode of Chic Pixel Plus! This week, I’m joined by Final Fantasy MMO nut and general nerd Mog for an in-depth discussion of Final Fantasy: XIV: A Realm Reborn! And we make a pretty good duo, if I do say so myself:

Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper episode without some news, so we also discuss the pre-TGS Sony Japan press conference that was chock-full of exciting and not-quite-as-exciting game and hardware announcements! What’s this newfangled PS Vita model? Did Sony say something about a Soul Sacrifice sequel? What exactly was so bad about the original Final Fantasy XIV? And why do we keep bringing up that other Japanese online game, Phantasy Star Online 2? Find out the answers to these pressing questions and a whole lot more in Chic Pixel Plus episode 6!
