    Episode 12: Hot Summer \ A Hot, Hot Summer

    Episode 12: Hot Summer \ A Hot, Hot Summer f(x) = Rathalos^50 What's a little summer heat compared to a fire-breathing dragon bearing down on you? Join us for a recap of our exploits in The Great Hunt (Extreme) and our time spent kicking back amidst the azure shoals of Costa del Sol during this year's Moonfire Faire. We also discuss the second iteration of the Eureka expedition, Pagos, and how it doesn't quite rekindle fond FFXI memories like some of us hoped it would.
