Final Fantasy XV had a jam packed 2017 for DLC. Despite the game’s initial 2016 release, newer content is still being created and released even after players have ended their journey with Noctis and his crew. The most anticipated DLC fans of the game have been looking forward to are the companion episodes that dug deeper into key moments in the game that affected Noctis’ friends solely: Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis. With all three episodes now available to download and play, I review and rank each DLC episode dedicated to these lovable bros.
When players reach the end of a video game, they take a moment to reflect on the experience before placing the game back on the shelf and moving onto the next one. Sometimes there might be DLC to play at a later date or maybe there’s no new additional content to look forward to. You get what you get. Then you have games like Final Fantasy XV that goes beyond story related DLC to give you fun events or extra features to keep you coming back to the game. The limited time special events Moogle Chocobo Carnival and the latest Assassin’s Festival make it impossible to resist diving back into the world of FFXV.
My journey with Mass Effect: Andromeda ended, which means I finished my video game challenge ahead of schedule than I thought I would. As I have mentioned in my last post, I gave myself free reign to just choose any video game I felt like playing. It didn’t make sense starting a new video game challenge with most of the month nearly gone already. I decided to go back to Final Fantasy XV after putting that aside in an attempt to complete another video game challenge. It seems like I’ve been doing well on the completion front this month because Final Fantasy XV is now also in the bag. It has been an incredible trip with this game and there’s plenty to say after reflecting on it. Fair warning to those who have yet to play or finish Final Fantasy XV, there will be heavy spoilers about the game. Read at your own risk.
January has been a month of playing nothing but Final Fantasy XV. Between hunts, dungeon crawls, and chocobo rides I’ve been indulging in my break from my video game challenges for a month. After clocking over 50 hours of the game so far, I’ve developed further impressions about FFXV since the last time I discussed it.
Life is one collection of moments. The best way to capture a moment is by taking a picture. Among the features of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV are the photographs Prompto snaps while the guys are on the road.
I know what you’re thinking, especially if anyone follows along with my video game challenges on the blog, “Why is she playing Final Fantasy XV when she’s supposed to be focusing on her ongoing video game challenge?” The answer is simple really––I’m weak! I may be tipping my hand early with how my next end of the month progress report will most likely turn out based on being successfully seduced by a new and incredibly sexy game, but I played it and do have some early reactions to what I’ve experienced so far. Spoiler Alert: It’s so much fun.
