History

The idea for Limit Break Radio came in the summer of 2006 when Aniero, Kallo, Argetlam and Sayl, all real-life friends, realized that their normal Final Fantasy XI discussion would make great radio. So during summer pre-production on the show was started. The website was launched in August of 2006 and the first episode "Cutting the Ribbon" was posted on August 21'st 2006. There is currently no regular updating schedule for Limit Break Radio, shows are released when they are finished. Argetlam left the show on 9/21/07, announcing his retirement on part 2 on Limit Break Radio's Anniversary show. Gamer was chosen to fill Argetlam's shoes and his first show premiered on 12/22/07. TamTu was asked to join the crew for the summer of 2008 and was later asked to be a permanent fill in host. TamTu is also the host of He Says She Says.

About the show

Limit Break Radio is completely owned and operated by its hosts meaning the hosts pay for everything. The show is taped with Aniero, Kallo, Sayl, Gamer, and interns all in one room and a guest or two joining them by Skype. The show focuses not just on current events but also common game strategies and hosts tell many in-game stories and share experiences. As of April 2009 the show has been divided up into two types of shows, topic centered shows and discussion oriented episodes. Topic centered shows focus on game content, these shows contain job discussions, event strategies, and mission and quest walkthroughs. Discussion centered shows focus on the hosts in game activities, personal stories and informal discussion and debate about topics relating to Final Fantasy XI.
