final fantasy xv first hours

  • There’s a lot of running around
  • The style if FF all the way, the interactions seamless
  • It feels like a MMORPG in that you can easily walk into side quests
  • It’s all about the team
  • Switching of weapons and items is quick and easy
  • Need I say the FMW is cinema quality
  • The characters are likeable
  • The time of the environment is more Fallout than Fallout
  • I’m binge watching Entourage for the first time; and Regalia is just like the crews Cadillac

Have to crash, but I can see FFxv taking up much of my game time this summer… notΒ since 11/11/11 and Skyrim have I felt the same way about a game.

TBC


I’m now cautious that I may have flown through the last couple of chapters, all for picking up the assistance of the gods; although think it worthwhile and am currently finishing off side quests… or rather making sure Cid has upgraded my weapons, before moving on

Loved the Rock of Ravotagh mission… although not sure what I’ll do yet with all of these weapons πŸ™‚


FFxv crashed on me this evening in the middle of a ruckus with 3 beasty crabs… I was kicking arse, think this was Square Enix’s counter πŸ™‚

Currently working on acquiring the Ultimate weapon, and in turn buffing levels ans stats, still having fun!

Have to learn how to post pictures taken in game to Twitter and here


Ultimate weapon gained, and it kicks arse!
Currently watching and loving Kingsglaive; it is a thing of beauty, hard to believe it’s all cgi.

The plot seems to be a mash of genres; traditional Final Fantasy, Cthulhu, and Tolkien / Game of Thrones, need I say how awesome it is?

haha just realised why I thought GoT & LoTR’s, Sean Bean is the voice of the King πŸ™‚

The scale of the battles are epic, so Japanese; a little bit of mech, a sprinkle of Godzilla and a big dollop of Monkey

Here’s a selfie photo from the game, think this may become a banner for the blog πŸ™‚

Now I can’t figure out why I’ve booked in a test drive for an Audi tomorrow πŸ˜‰

I’ll embed the Brotherhood cartoons as I watch them, enough time for videos this evening, it’s time to play


Iris sounds very much like the same voice actress for SFiv’s Sakura?

As much as I’m enjoying the game it has made me appreciate The Witcher 3 even more, The Witcher World feels more full, the plot more alive, although I like both combat systems Witcher is more involving, and maybe a little more twitch compared to the analytic FF style.

Brotherhood FFXV


This game now feels the opposite if FFIII, where one starts linear and the final levels are open World, the other is the opposite.

Is this a good thing?

I think it encourages player to buy into the game with both time and emotions early on, although then leave them disillusioned to the latter end of the story.

I’m now in a chapter that reminds me of the the first Final Fantasy game I played nearly 30 years ago on the original Game Boy: Final Fantasy Legend

Final Fantasy Legend

Although this time I’ve invested less hours, yer still seem adequately powered up to tackle all that the game throws at me.

I’ve enjoyed the game, I’ll play the DLC, but I now appreciate Witcher 3 that little bit more and will certainly revisit it to confirm that my memories are not all through rose coloured glasses.

Rating to be updated while playing
Rating: ★★★½☆


I find FFxv the opposite of FFxiii; it begins open world, then goes scripted.

I now have the option to complete the game, but I’m happy enough levelling up, collecting what I can, and earning Gil.

So before I take Nocti and the posse to the conclusion I’m looking to acquire all of the Royal Arms: locations and stats here

PSA: No matter what level you’re at, use the gun emplacements when they’re available
