FFXV cover


Greetings everyone!

Today we’ve cooked up a doozy of an episode about an undercooked doozy of a game, Final Fantasy XV. Hosts Joe, Kamille, and special guest Justin, discuss the game’s many pros and cons in great length. We discuss the game’s troubled development cycle, if the game was worth the wait, the controversial patches coming to this game that adds essential story scenes, and even get into a little open-world fatigue talk. Joe and Justin are veterans of the series but Kamille has a fresh perspective on the series as this is her first Final Fantasy playthrough.

The game was released on November 29th, 2016 on the Xbox One and PS4 consoles. It was directed by Hajime Tabata, and the music was composed by Yoko Shimomura.  We open with a pretty long spoiler-free section so if you haven’t played the game feel free to listen without worry. After that we dive head first into our Story Mode (patent pending), which is just a mine field of spoilers everywhere you step, so be warned. We also dedicate a section to a certain post game dungeon that everyone should experience fresh…

Kamille wanted to state the accurate time it took for her to beat the game. She beat it with 65 hours on the clock!
