    Default Just got this on Steam!

    FFXV has been gifted to me and itís been a blast. Iíve only just started (just got the Regalia fixed) but itís hooked me. I really like the party banter - all the guys come across as very charming in their own unique ways and feel like they really like each other without overindulging in pointless dialog. It feels natural. I like how important camping and cooking are, since it makes the whole tour just feel very organic. Also, nighttime is actually dark and scary. I didnít realize how much of an issue Hollywood Darkness is in video games until now.

    Will probably update now and again to let you guys know how Iím doing. If youíd like to share your experiences here to keep me company, by all means!

    The relationship between each of the guys really was my favourite part of the entire experience. I'd love to hear more as you continue playing through; I'm very tempted to go back and see if I can't polish off some of the things I didn't finish last time, particularly now that there's no more DLC coming ()

    One of my favorite things to do was just drive around listening to the radio.

    FFXV was a solid, decently entertaining game. Just wandering around and exploring was good fun. I thought some of the last parts were a lot weaker, but I don't want to spoil anything. I'll be interested to see how your opinion develops as you play more.

    I will probably need to check this out at some point, just to complete the set.

    Iím very slowly progressing the main story, but the world is very fun to explore so far, despite being pretty empty compared to, say, the Witcher 3. Hunts arenít as fun as in XII because of the lack of additional side stories, but itís still immersive enough because the hunts act as pretty much just pest extermination jobs and that alone kind of enriches the world. Had my first encounter with Goblins and wow were they evil little trouts. One thing that annoys me a bit though is the indicators on the field that keep telling you where what is and how many feet away it is. I wish I could just turn it off.

    Overall, so far I feel the game has a very specific focus and is really good at it. Itís different from previous FFs, but thatís not a bad thing. I almost feel like nothing happened between XII and this - it feels like a way more natural progression than with XIII in the middle.

    The PC version gives you the blade that does 9999 Dmg when you warp strike right?

    Forgot the name. That blade is awesome!!

    Yeah it's watching the bro fest unfold as you travel around that is the best part of the game. I wouldn't rush the plot because it's the little interactions among the team that really builds up the relationships.

    Reached the end of chapter 1 yesterday, so some story stuff happened. Iím severely over leveled so far since the story mission was level 3 and I was level 11. But I donít really mind, I always do it in these types of games. The worlds are just too fun not to explore.

    Also finished Kingsglaive yesterday and it was... surprisingly decent? Like itís not exactly my type of movie - I personally wouldíve cut it down to half itís length because those action scenes were overly long imo, but overall I liked it. It was coherent, the main conflict was pretty cool and I liked all the little shoot outs to previous FFs, with stuff like Ultros, Diamond Weapon and Knights of the Round. I do feel like Iím more immersed in the world now, though I have to say that overall Brotherhood was much more to my liking in terms of FFXV supplementary material.

    Also just picked it up on steam. I originally played it to chapter 3 on ps4 when it first came out. The combat feels entirely different to me than 4 years ago. I dont know if I just forgot or if they changed it.

    Make sure to look at those weapons available from the start. Thereís the Ragnarok which like Christmas said absolutely devastated enemies when used in a warp strike
