i dont have a ps4 unfortunately but ive been watching people play this and its incredible, just wonderfully self-aware in a way that these games generally are not

* you can buy an mp3 player in some shops to listen to the soundtracks when you are outside the car

that's amazing, where did you get it?

This game is a bit buggy and full of mad decisions, and totally unpolished, and the lipsync is awful, and the dialogue is nuts. And all those weird things and everything about it that makes it crazy, all the things that rabid weirdo internet people are telling me make it 'A TOTAL TRASHFIRE OMG WHAT A BOMB' are parts of the reason why its so fun to experience.

hmm it was either in Lestallum just after i met Iris, or after that at the shop just before the big bridge with the waterfall underneath (2nd dungeon). Chapter 3.

oh man the autosave on this is not often enough. finished the second dungeon (took about an hour), got outside and ran into 4 enemies just above my level, and died. none of the dungeon progressed was saved. ANNOYING. so make sure you manual save. did an hour or two of side stuff instead and will go back tomorrow to get it done.

aw that sucks. i am an elderly pc gamer so i save compulsively.

on chapter 7. this game gets so much so right and does it all in such a bizarre sui generis manner (the characters and their interactions, the world in general, all the seemingly pointless systems) that i totally forgive the stuff it gets wrong (there's a really dumb stealth section in chapter 6 but it's pretty short). plus it's all so intensely final fantasy-ish so in playing i'm caught between shock-of-the-new and fuzzy nostalgia AND, finally, the story is actually kind of interesting which is the first time that's happened since... FFIX? (and i liked 10, 11, 12 and 14) (13 bad)

millennial gamer neighbor hung out and watched me play then pointed out that in this game i am playing the role of "part of team fuccboi" and it has made it difficult not to think of my character as such

okay, i tried this for like three hours and i hate it. I think i'm gonna play dark souls iii again instead.

three weeks pass...

only at about chapter 6 but i think i kinda love this game. despite being terrible at combat, i'm loving the characters, cruising in the regalia, the setting, and the story (so far..). as with all the open world games, has a bit too many fetch quests that i feel like i have to complete, but yeah best FF since IX or X for sure.

its a big fat mess, but a very very lovable one.

jamiesummerz, Tuesday, 17 January 2017 00:20 (two years ago) link

the second it went linear i lost all interest, haven't played it since

adam, Tuesday, 17 January 2017 02:10 (two years ago) link

i was deeply deeply disappointed with the combat; it's sloppy and I don't feel like i have any control over it. the camping sequences and cooking and photography all feels not fun to me.

i have a feeling (no spoilers please!!) that at the end of the game there will be some sort of slideshow of all the photos you've saved throughout your journey. i'm 100% down with the road trip aspect of the game so i think it'll be fun to see all the pictures along the way after spending like 40 hours with the game.

mostly agree with the combat aspect though i feel like i'm getting better at it and there are hints that it goes quite deep. i mean every time i cast a spell i hit my allies and take away 50% of their hp, there's got to be more to it right?

use Ignis regroup to gather everyone to you before using magic helps a ton

nine months pass...

Square Enix just announced in a livestream that three of the four upcoming pieces of downloadable content for Final Fantasy XV have been cancelled. The one remaining will be out next year.

Back in April, we were told there’d be four more pieces of DLC coming for the 2016 game, with episodes called Ardyn, Aranea, Luna and Noctis. Only Ardyn is left, and it’ll be out in March 2019.

In addition to the cancellations, it was also announced that Hajime Tabata, the man who took over from Tetsuya Nomura as director of the game in 2013, has left Square Enix.

reading the tea leaves, i guess not enough people are playing/buying DLC to justify making more. i still haven't played XV at all, but i was thinking of taking it on sometime the next year or two when i can nab it at a bargain price.

the first season of ffxv dlc did well i think. they just built tabata a new studio for some big new project he was gonna direct so this is a very sudden change of direction,
