Final Fantasy Friday: I've Finally Started FFXV!


On the last Friday of the year, I finally get to say that I've started playing Final Fantasy XV!


If you could hear the music! Anyway, I'm probably only 10 minutes into the actual storyline, lol. Unlike the other FF games, you can do side quests right out the gate in this one, so I've been doing those to level up my characters.

The game opens with a highly perilous looking encounter in the future. Noctis, the main character, looks to be in his 50s, and Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto are still by his side protecting him. Then, it lurches to the present, where Noctis's dad King Regis is sending him off to get married. I need to know how we get to that highly perilous scene!

But I'm nowhere near there yet, lol.

If you've ever played a Need for Speed game, that's the vibe I'm getting from this installment. The first screen that comes up states FFXV is for new and old fans, and I didn't play the first Need for Speed Underground to have to play the 2nd. There's a storyline, but you can basically do whatever you want until you're ready to follow it. I like that freedom. I need to make sure I keep looking at the tutorial and training for the fighting techniques, though. I don't want to forget while I'm dilly-dallying.

Here is a clip of me sneaking past something...big.


I really hope I don't have to fight this thing in the future. Did you see its TAIL!?

  1. I'll be interested to hear your take on this game as I've totally gone off it since I started playing the actual story as opposed to going around doing the submissions. If like me, you watched Kingsglaive and are hoping it's going to be anything like that - like ANYTHING, you might just be disappointed.
    I really don't want to give up on this franchise but in my opinion, SquareEnix hasn't told a good story since.

    1. I definitely wouldn't expect it to be like Kingsglaive. The prequel movie and episodes just set up the backstory of this game, which the others never had before the fact, so I'm coming in aware of what's happened/happening but knowing each piece of XV's stories are bringing something different to it as a whole.

      Since what?

    2. Sorry, I meant since FF10.

      By anything like Kingsglaive I really meant the story, the movie had a good story! I'm not sure what part you're up to but there's a good few large parts/characters in the movie that seem to be set up to add to the games story experience...then are dropped.

      I'll be keeping an eye on your updates! You sound like a die hard fan though, so maybe you'll like it either way?

    3. Ah, yeah that's been true. I'm trying to figure out how people loved XII and XIII.

      I took Kingsglaive as back story, even though it's happening at the same time as the first few chapters (I'm in 3), so I didn't expect any of the characters there to show up.

    5. I am liking it so far, which bodes well. If I'm bored right off the bat, I'll most likely find it a waste of time.

    7. Ah so if you're up to 3 don't you think it's weird Gladious and Iris don't talk about their Dad's death when they meet up? Super weird! He was an important character in the movie!
