Final Fantasy 14's Aboriginal raids are appealing tough—they're focused, 8-player brawls with teeth that are abstruse like choreographed dances. One blooper can spell doom for your accomplished crew, and dying is appealing common. What's beneath accepted is the alternation architect of Final Fantasy assuming up to acclamation you on while you're accomplishing them.

As spotted by GamesRadar, Hironobu Sakaguchi, the architect of the Final Fantasy Series, about alone into the babble of a 69 year old banderole who goes by the name of pokochii_bigmum on Twitter.

Regrettably I can't allege Japanese, so I'm application Google Construe here, but you can apprehend the advertising and atheism in the streamer's articulation back the ancestor of Final Fantasy posts a aboveboard "Nice to accommodated you, I'm Sakaguchi" in the chat, at about 2:31:00 on the VOD below.
