Thoughts on Final Fantasy XV

Edit on December 15th: More screencaps and random babblings added. 😀

Final Fantasy XV - Certificate of Completion
Yeah, play time and level are kind of high but I was determined to milk the game. I still have a ton of hunts to do. 😐
Final Fantasy XV - Yay Platinum
Yay Platinum~
Final Fantasy XV - Certificate of Completion #2
Got my 100 hours done! 😄 This black chocobo chick is too precious. *^_^*

General thoughts:

  • The gameplay, especially the battle system, is fun.
    .
  • English voice acting is mostly good. English Gladio versus Japanese Gladio is a huge difference. With the JP one, he had a more expressive tone. English Gladio was more robotic. ^^ I prefer the former.
    .
  • The story’s all right. I’ve experienced worse such as Star Ocean: Till the End of Time and Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits.
    .
  • I didn’t mind the game being linear/on rails after Chapter 9, but Chapter 13 dragged on for eternity.
    .
  • Wait Mode is great for the extra moment needed to find a part to target. ^^ I suppose the same could be achieved by simply doing a point warp and then target-cycle from there though.
    .
  • Walking or jogging around towns and cities was annoying. I took to jumping around since it seemed like Noctis moved faster that way, but doing that in Altissia during the day was even more annoying since there were so many “Check” spots. (The jumping would get interrupted frequently.)
    .
  • The country(?) of Accordo looks rather large! I was disappointed that we could only explore Altissia. Hopefully, some DLC will allow players to journey off the water city.
    .
  • I hated navigating around Altissia. Maybe it’s just me but I had to stop every few steps to look at the map to make sure I was heading in the right direction.
    .
  • Cactuar encounters are too freakin’ rare. :\ I was hoping to farm some to get more Oracle Ascension Coins so I could trade them in for a Ribbon but … ugh. I kind of regret not doing it earlier in the game since now Imperials drop in every minute or so while I run around waiting for one cactuar to respawn. 😛 Seriously, the rate of Magitek jerks appearing is pretty damn high. I wouldn’t mind them too much if Assassins never dropped.
    .
  • I hoped that being higher levelled meant having an easier time dealing with the daemons that popped up at night, but the game decided to toss in a level 99 Magitek mech post-story. 9__9 My level 60+ party only did like 10 – 15 HP of damage to it. But that may have been without any buffs. Still, I doubt the damage would have been much higher with an attack enhancing buff. Also, 1 hit from a missile put Noctis into the Danger phase. :E
    .
  • Is it just me or is it a pain to land the Regalia-F? I always try to find roads that aren’t windy but by the time I get the car close enough to land, I’m already at a part where the road bends. 😛 Once I tried taking off and the vehicle immediately burst into flames. I think I hit a railing or something? I’m not even sure.
    .
  • I found it interesting that radio broadcasts had story-related tidbits in them. They’re not vital but give you a little bit more insight on certain plot-related things though. You can keep turning a radio on and off to cycle through commercials and news.
    .
  • Fishing is fun. Totomostro is fun too. ^^~ Justice Monsters V … not so much.

Random screenshots~!

I have more at my Twitter account along with video snippets of silly things. ^^ They can be found from November 29th to December 9th. I’m not done with the game though so there will probably be more screencaps and vids after that time range! 😄

Now for S P O I L E R S! :E Actually, it’s more like a bunch of questions. ^^ Continue reading Thoughts on Final Fantasy XV

Mobius Final Fantasy and FFXV Judgment Disc demo

I’d like to apologize to everyone coming to my blog looking for advice or information about Mobius FF jobs, ability cards and/or deck configurations. I don’t provide them because I’m not the type that analyzes their worth and I’m definitely not someone that can come up with “a good deck” for any occasion. ^^

My gameplay style is conservative & defensive and I always play to survive rather than for quick and efficient killing.

You can try web sites like the Mobius Final Fantasy wiki at Gamepedia or Reddit. There are lots of informed players, threads, and articles that give great advice. ^^~

Incidentally, I won’t be doing a write up of the JP content for December. Here’s a summary of the Japanese Square Enix Presents stream from a few days ago on Altema instead: http://altema.jp/ffmobius/namahousou24-24874

I still think the writer erroneously refers to the Cloud skin as a job. It will not have its own stats. Instead, you apply it to a Warrior job and you end up getting a Wol that looks like Cloud + an Ultimate that’s exclusive to the skin.

Anyway, here’s the meat of the post 😀
