Time to dig in, yeah?

Anyone else ready?

i like the basic premise that has been sold to us where the game is like a really bro-y road trip, but I'm gonna wait and see how it pans out -- that can't be all of what that game is about, and that insanely long production cycle that has involved multiple rewrites of the game's basic premise has me on edge.

The initial impressions I've read are pretty good. The bro-y bonding is apparently the best part of the game. It's open world until after the halfway point and then it goes more linear, which sounds divisive. You can return to the open-world stuff, though, so it's not like you have to finish everything.

Dungeon design is getting praised. Combat is generally fun, but magic is kinda lame. The camera sucks. It can be glitchy and it will probably crash. Supposedly they nailed the ending, yet the story up to that point has some half-baked moments (something doesn't add up there).

Pretty cautious, but it sounds like I wouldn't mind spending time with this game.

Yeah, I kinda figured magic would get the short end of the stick here. I'm getting pretty used to it in these ARPG's. Maybe there will be a (I can't believe I'm actually advocating this) balance patch or something that makes it more useful if all reports are to be believed. That's my biggest phantom peeve so far.

And yeah, I feel like ever since they switched directors, or whatever the hell they did to warrant the game essentially being redone, is going to be something rummaging about in the back of my mind. No doubt I'm going to enjoy the game, but for all the good the game may do I can almost guarantee that the initial product was going to be something more.

I think I may have purchased everything there is to purchase regarding this game so far, even the polarizing Kingsglaive.

This game is totally gonna be a Christmas present to myself if no one gets it for me. Pokemon broke the bank on gaming budget for this month. Otherwise I'd be playing this.

Basically my situation, except instead of Pokemon just sub in any number of other expenses. Plus like, buying gifts for other people.

They played up the Deadeye fight to such be this grandiose thing by having real-time cutscenes, stealth and such before it....

....and then the actual fight happens and I kill it in three seconds. Lmfao

The definition of anticlimatic.

Finally beat this damn thing. Loved every bit of it except for one chapter in particular.

I think this may be the first game I've beaten since Uncharted 4.

Finally beat it as well! I really like this game. I'm not a big FF guy, though I've played most of them. I think this one might just be my favorite tbh.
