Final Fantasy XV (Non-story Related Spoilers)



  • @El-Shmiablo Personally, I'm glad I didn't watch Kingsglaive because I was genuinely surprised when that moment happened in between chapters. I had my theories of course, but there was no definitive "this is going to happen," which made it have a little more impact. I plan on watching the supplemental stuff after I complete the game, so I'll see if that makes me appreciate things more. Still kind of on the fence about all this extra lore being far removed from the game but... at least it's not grimoire cards.

    Does anyone else just sell all their treasure instead of using it to make magic?

    Magic in this game is almost as useless as it is in Kingdom Hearts.

    @Art Pump more points per element into your slots. Magic can be fucking devestating.



  • I've only done the first little quest but am enjoying it a lot. FYI I recommend changing to controller layout 2,it makes combat a little more intuitive with the button layouts



  • Yep Magic is super powerful, you can wipe out a whole group of enemies with just one spell!



  • I wasn't using magic but then I watched my roommate devastate an entire group of enemy soldiers (at least 10 of them) with one Thunder/Bolt/Lightning/WhateverThisGameCallsIt. Plus, if you mix in a debased coin, you get EXP for casting.



  • @SabotageTheTruth sweet thenak for telling me even though this game gives out levels like there goin outta style

    also when you get to chapter 3 things really open up



  • I can now say being 20 hours in, I'm appreciating the game more. The side quests are beginning to wear on me as literally every single one is kill this number of enemies or pick up this package for me, but aside from that, I'm enjoying the journey much more. I just wish I could listen to different tunes on my chocobo.



  • @SabotageTheTruth theres a walkman for sale somewhere



  • @FF7Cloud Your car sells it. Unfortunately, it only works while on foot though, not on the glorious chickens. If they could add that in with the ability to pick up items while riding, that'd be pretty nice.

    What jams do you guys listen to?
    I love cruisin' to the theme of Oerba from XIII.
    Maximum comf.



  • @El-Shmiablo I usually just put it on shuffle and trust it makes the right choices. Although once the story revealed a certain death happened, you better believe I put on Aerith's theme.



  • @El-Shmiablo rose of may, your not alone, anything from 7,8



  • 20 hours in and it feels great to have a game that I haven't been able to beat in a few days.



  • 10 housing, really liking it. Few minor annoyances

    I do hate how unresponsive the X button is out of combat. Want to talk to someone or check something? Nope, you're going to jump instead.

    Really wish we could have multiple hunts and side quests active at same time.

    Noctus is too slow outside of battle and wish he had unlimited stamina outside of battle

    Like magic system but hate drawing it but at least there are only three types to draw



  • @ACardAttack Right? The jumping thing really reminds me of The Witcher. Every time I'd try to pick something up, I'd just light a candle.

    As for the stamina part, you can upgrade it and if you time the stamina just right (letting go of the button right when the bar is depleted and pressing it immediately), you can potentially refill all your stamina. All the same though, it's a vast world, his speed should be a little faster, I agree.

    I also feel like I'm the only person in the world that enjoys the Justice Hero Five pinball machine. Now, I won't say it's well designed, but I did end up playing it for an hour straight so... I dunno. Just seeing all of those numbers pop up massages my brain. I've only played on the 10 gil machines, but I haven't really gotten anything great from them - even after hitting 99 treasure box things.

    Turn on the stamina bar in the options menu. It's also infinitely easier to run and refill your stamina if you press down L3 instead of circle.

    Not really sure how I feel about the pinball. I didn't know what I was doing the whole time, but I did manage to make a lot of progress so I guess I was doing something right.



  • You basically just want to hit bumpers/walls to fill up the meter in the center each round, as it gives you the bonus reels that spin. So it actively becomes more about avoiding the enemies if you're about to clear the round, that way you don't lose out on any potential bonuses. It's not groundbreaking and it's no Triple Triad, but it's a decent diversion for half an hour or so.

    Im about 10 hours in (even though will play like 48 hours by the end of the week). I have mainly done side missions and collected things. I barley use magic unless its a huge group as its soon easy to hit my teammates. However I really don't understand the crafting system. Thought investing more would give you more casts, but they are always limited to 3 casts? Also whats the point of the numbers like "thunder 20/80" or w/e? doesn't feel like its adding anything more than using up my elemental energy. Also realised I could add potions, but whats up with the treasures and what effects do they add? so far Ive mainly sold em for gil
