I’ve played an hour or so of Final Fantasy XV, and I’m definitely liking the vibe so far. All of the reviews I’ve seen were kind of vague on why they liked the game so much, but I kind of get it. The bro road trip thing works surprisingly well.
One of my worries was that the nature of the game would prevent it from being very guide-friendly, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. I’ll probably have to do some actual mapping for this one, but that’s not the worst thing in the world. There’s plenty of information to gather, though, between items, abilities, hunts, and whatnot. I won’t start doing any guidework in earnest until I’ve finished the game the first time, though, so don’t expect it all that soon.
