Final Fantasy XV (Non-story Related Spoilers)

    OH, HI THERE OPENING!



  • http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1322843

    Official update from Tabata, detailing their Update Roadmap.

    They're going to add new elements to the story, fix chapter 13, basically fill in the gaps. That's great news, even though it's pretty much an admission that the game needed at least 6 more months of development.

    Now I'm definitely waiting for the Switch Definitive Edition.



  • When did we slip from "Wait for a patch" to "Wait they finish the game"? What did I miss?



  • @Lotias The more you put in, the more potency you have. So if you're using it on trash mobs, yeah, you probably won't notice a difference because even a lower potency would take it out. If you save the high potency spells for bosses, then yeah, it should be more noticeable - plus there's skills in ascension to increase potency even further. I believe there's items you can toss in to gain more casts, but I usually just stick with the ones that increase my experience. I'm level 36 heading into chapter 5 though and by the sounds of things, I'm very over-levelled.

    I highly recommend you all check out this week's Frame Trap as the first hour and a half is dedicated to the game. It does a great job of highlighting all of my frustrations but also addressing everything that is great with the game. There's some very minor spoilers discussed for a small amount of time, but they do an excellent job not revealing plot details.

  • i think final fantasy 15 is a stepping stone its similar to final fantasy 3 its a good game but its just a way to get people use to systems that are greatly improved in a sequel (ffv) i think ff16 will be a step up from the mechanics of 15



  • @FF7Cloud I really hope that's the case. If they decide to scrap what they've created and try to invent the wheel all over again, not only will it take forever, but we'll never get to see some of the ideas here fully represented in a consistent, polished manner. If there's as much separation as time as there was between 13 and 15, they would alienate way too many people. If they can somehow pump them out in a similar style to the PS1 golden era of Final Fantasy, then we're in for some great times ahead.



  • @SabotageTheTruth i would like them to pump them out as quick as ps1 era but i just dont think you can pump a game out as quick anymore they were pumping a game out like every year to 18 months, i would love them to but i dont think its possible anymore. i would expect 16 before 2020 though

    as for the other point i dont think they'll scrap everything they spent the last decade building

    They'll have to scrap some things. Like, not every character in future Final Fantasy's will be able to warp strike into battle.



  • @Art Or.... can they?


  • Banned

    @FF7Cloud I dunno man. It looks like Square has dropped Crystal Tools and Luminous Studio in favor of Unreal Engine 4 so maybe that'll help speed up development.



  • just fought a certain boss in chapter 6 that blew my mind great set piece battle while not overly hard it was hella fun



  • @FF7Cloud
    You talking about the battle against Darth Vader and Megatron, or the battle against Snake Pliskin?



  • @DMCMaster darth vader's second form riding a dragon



  • Really hating that one I can't hide quests I have no interest in completing from my quest list and the find x amount of thing quests in an area. I'm doing the trap ones, and I've done the frog ones, it is just so hard to find these fucking things, they don't stand out at all


  • Banned

    The frogs aren't that hard. Just run in a big circle and listen for them.

    On a separate matter. The way you summon astrals should be the same way you call a chocobo.



  • @Art

    Didn't realize I could listen for them, but they were hard to see and took me way too long to find them

    Has anyone come across any fun side quests other than hunts? Most quests seem to be go get this or kill this. I've enjoyed hunts and fishing, but so far the side quests have been lack luster...perhaps the Witcher 3 has spoiled me for side quests



  • The photo spot quest are pretty good, at least to me anyway, also has a pretty big Gill pay out with the first quest starting at like 7 thousand.



  • 13 hours in, still in the hinterlands. Hunting, fishing, camping, and cooking. I think by the end of the day, I may do the quest where you break into the first enemy base.

    I cruise to J E N O V A.



  • just finished the game



  • @TokyoSlim
    As a heads up if you want to fly asap, you might want do the bases first
