    Metacritic: 86 (PS4)

    The game is out on the 29th (today or tomorrow, depending on where you live) for PS4 and Xbone. Anyone playing it?

    Oh man this game finally came out, I worked on it my during my game dev internship, can't be more thankful enough for the opportunity.
    Too bad I don't have a PS4/Pro, I guess I will have to wait until it comes out for.... a more powerful device.

    Hope you fellas enjoy the game!

    The 2 months delay is to integrate the original day 1 patch, while simultaneously creating a new day 1 patch.
    If this made sense...

    That was the reason given. However, considering leaks, pre-release tidbits and numerous reception of the master demo two months back, it was really just PR reasons because the game was actually very much buggy and unpolished still. It seems the developers basically hyped everyone up about the September release initially and then couldn't even get the game properly fixed up by that point so they delayed it to save face.

    Maybe that's just me being cynical about it though.

    This is true, isn't this what they said?
    I remember I couldn't even boot up certain chapters few months back.

    They have not announced PC version but I'll be frank that they did a bad job hiding it from public eye because it was the best version to play on lol

    I'm loving it.

    It's pretty slow paced but honestly I think that's one of the best things about it.

    Not only that, they'd basically want to make it the definitive version. Not solely for PC sake but rather because there's a lot of stuff cut from the final product they wanted to include but couldn't due to console limitations, even for the PS4.
    So if they ever do a PC version (which isn't too unlikely given Square's PC trends nowadays, even if they're lazy with their ports), it'd pretty much be a director's cut unless Square forced them to dial it back.

    Here's a small challenge to make the combat way more exciting:
    1. Embargo on ALL weapons and magic except: Greatswords, Shield and Machinery. Royal Arms that behave like any of the three categories (except the giant Shuriken) are acceptable.
    Your buddies can use whatever.

    2. You may only carry 5 potions and 2 phoenix downs at any given time. All extras, Elixirs, Hi- and Mega- variants are to be sold to NPC.
    You may still use items that buffs and cure.

    Be warned, this isn't easy. I only started doing this after I got bored hundreds of hours playtesting this game.
    You will start abusing all sorts of i-frames and "features" to win just a single fight post-Chapter 3.

    How is it highway robbery? It costs the same as any new AAA game that's come out in the last 10 years.

    Meanwhile almost certainly having much more content than the average AAA game too.

    Not sure what there is to complain about in that regard.

    My first Final Fantasy game. I've played a couple of hours now and it's charming. And the combat is more fun than I feared it would be after playing that early "demo" if you can even call it that.

    Picking my copy up in a little bit, cautiously excited personally as it's my first ""real"" final fantasy in actual years.

    This may sound stupid, but I'm doing the tutorial and I can't seem to use point warp at all.

    I aim the camera at one of the point and press triangle, but Noctis just warps forward instead of to the thing I'm aiming at. There's even a prompt TELLING me to press triangle to warp there but it still doesn't work.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Hold the button instead.
    Any button prompt with two red arrows pointing towards it means "HOLD"
    There are many actions overlap buttons and the only execution difference is holding and tapping

    I feel like pressing the button would be a lot better than simply holding it down especially when it comes to blocking and parrying

    Don't have the game so typing this out with memory:
    Triangle for Warp Strike, HOLD for Point Warp. Holding the button will guarantee a point warp instead of accidental "non-locked" warp strike.
    Square for Roll Dodge, HOLD for Evasion / Parry / Shield. More often than not getting out of an attack is better than wasting your mana evading.
    Circle for striking, HOLD to sprint -or- alters your attack if mid-attack. Also used for interacting outside of combat, and to piss off your buddies.
    Edit: Forgot that you can hold circle to Blitz. Please make a habit and not do this.

    Jump is jump.

    Got the steelbox for like 59, which is still pretty expensive, but way better than the regular Day One edition for like 69 in another store. Pumped to play it now.

    I don't know if it's me but God the atmosphere and travelling around is so chill. When I drive with the car I don't mind the 3 minute travel time I just put a good track on the ost sit back and enjoy the views.

    What does one do with the paint shards? Obviously it's to make pain but from what I can gather.. I haven't seen a npc that can make it nor a option to do anything with it

    Cindy does the customisation of the Regalia, the different paint shards are needed for the different colours.

    You're probably too early in the game then.
