Final Fantasy Friday: A Month at the Carnival

It's the last Friday in February, and so that means it is time for:










This is the day I have set aside to shoot the breeze about blog memes, when available, and my Final Fantasy obsession. As you know, this year I have started playing Final Fantasy XV. This game is an experience. I'm almost sure I'm not even halfway done, and part of that is because of the ability to do side quests immediately, a first in the whole franchise, and also partly because at the end of January, a DLC (additional downloadable content) was added known as the Moogle Chocobo Carnival!


Think of it as a state fair. One of the cities in the game received a huge festival makeover, and you could do everything from fishing, to playing games, to helping little kids retrieve their balloons. Each night at about 8pm fireworks started going off for hours (probably about 20 minutes IRL), and if you racked up enough coins, you could buy a voucher to spend a night in the hotel and get a front row seat to the fireworks show. I took a lot of pictures but forgot to share them, so I can't access them right now.


Here are a few of pictures I shared on Twitter of Noctis and his dream guide Carbuncle riding the gondola through town.


You could change Noctis's clothes, so here he is being casual.


Look at the detail!



You could skip the scenic route, but sometimes, I just liked to look around.
Items you acquired through the carnival rolled over to your regular game, so I tried to get as many items as I could. I had a lot of fun, and now that the carnival is gone, I need to dive back into the real game. People are dropping spoilers on Instagram! *sigh* The price of not having the luxury of playing all day anymore.


It's a beautiful day in Delaware, so I hope the same goes for wherever you are! Get outside and have a good weekend!
