i watched kingsglaive the other week, which was better than both spirits within and advent children. not saying much, but it was ok. basically a 2hr vg cutscene that did a nice bit of world building and introduced some key characters that will be in xv. probably watch the film before playing the game

There's also that free anime on the official FFXV YouTube. I haven't watched anything yet, but I think I probably will check out the movie and the anime eventually before the game, and maybe the demo since you get a Carbuncle in the full game if you play it (I don't know what a Carbuncle does though, probably not much). The anime seems made for someone younger than me, but oh well, still love Final Fantasy. <3

I like the dorky optional clothes they had in some gameplay demos earlier. Always like if you get to play dress-up. I haven't watched the full videos, just seen some screenshots. It's kinda obvious if the character model is not made for the alternate outfits though... Replaying Lightning Returns currently and her default outfit has big shoulder pauldrons and a billowing cape, and in some slim outfits, and especially in the bikini outfits, it just looks like she has a giant head on a tiny body. Her proportions were made for the default outfit I guess...take away the big shoulders and cape and stuff and her body under is really small.

Cannot unsee Lightning's giant bobble head. Cosplay for comparison.

anyone else playing this?

the animations are really good and I like the photos, music, and interactions so far.

Artificial stuff looks great, really reminiscent of the old 7-8 prerendered backgrounds which is impressive & v good imo. Natural stuff, rocks and trees etc, don't look so hot so far.

Combat seems to be a pile of nonsense

Between this and The Last Guardian, I'm choosing to wait regarding XV. Hearing the games story really throws alot at you at once.

Has anyone experienced a bug where after they win a battle, the battle mode remains on? Had this just happen to me and had to restart the game. Thankfully my last save wasn't too far back.

Cleared this pretty fast. The story was good, with a strong emotional throughline in the second half.

I think the incidental details, the off-the-cuff conversations, the worldbuilding, is my favorite aspect. I never wanted to fast travel in the car, I'd always just let Iggy drive and listen to the boys talk. That was pure Final Fantasy.

I also enjoy just letting Ignis drive while listening to Final Fantasy tracks. The FFXI Gustaberg track almost works perfectly while going from point A to B.

I liked that they had all the different FF music in there, but after the first day I found myself just leaving the stereo off. There was something relaxing about just listening to the motor running, and the occasional conversations as the scenery goes by. Felt like a real road trip.

I'm still trying to put my thoughts together on this after finishing the story. Alot of conflicting thoughts on the game overall. Almost the same feelings I had with MGSV. I thought the story was poorly paced and the shortest in recent memory. Many things were left unexplained and out in the open. I tried my hand at a far share of sidequests but before I knew it, I was already on Chapter 13, which left a bad taste in my mouth. I thought the Esther chapter in FF8 was a grind but this beat it outright. The gameplay was the best aspect which is kind of sad thinking about it. The music, with a few exceptions, also felt lacking.

Despite so many of its flaws, I still think it's possibly the best FF title since FF9 and certainly since 10 in my book.

currently waiting for this to finish downloading. was able to try the battle arena thing though. graphics are brilliant and combat actually seems fun. way more fast-paced than kingdom hearts.

Thumbs up

verdict ~half an hour in: best final fantasy in ages! like ffxii, elder scrolls and shenmue but the way these games should have been.

i'm level 7 and still on act 1. just spent some time running around picking up treasure from treasure spots, have lots of nice accessories now. need to start putting points into equip 2 accessories abilities for my allies. or are they called relics? can't remember now.

have already taken both ap boosts from resting to help me gain ap faster. i don't like fishing. stupid cat.

i like how it sticks to ff roots of '4 chosen warriors' or whatever.

it got late and i got ambushed by an iron giant. i'm glad you can run away...

best way to fund new weapons and accessories seems to be by selling excess curative items...

killed the level 54 midgar zolom on my way to the ice cave despite only being level 17. just tried staying around its midsection, it likes to back away from you before it attacks so i tried closing the distance over and over using warp strikes. still got wiped out a load of times and used up too many curative items...

SPOILER ALERTS

oh man i feel so sorry for poor blind Ignis. i hope Lady Lunafreya's ghost shows up and heals him (i have a feeling that's exactly what's gonna happen).

Gladiolus is kinda a can of beans.
