Released late 2016, Final Fantasy 15 is the latest in the long and historic Final Fantasy 15 franchise. Spanning ten years of development, a CGI movie starring Aaron Paul of all people, and an hour long anime OVA, it’s an honest to god surprise that FF15 even came out, let alone was any good.
The basic gist of the game is that Noctis Lucis Caelum (the kid you play as) along with his best friends (who are also his bodyguards) are sent out on a road trip from their royal city in order for Noctis to be wed to his girlfriend Lunafreya Nox Flueret. Nothing at all goes wrong over the course of this journey. Also, this game really likes Latin.
So why am I playing this? Well, I finished the game pretty recently and had the immediate feeling that I needed to share what is definitely one of my new favorite games with the world, and with the PC port releasing along with the Royal Edition, maybe I can help the game sell a copy or two.
Along for the ride with me (https://twitter.com/JetGrindFuture) are my good pals Goggalor (who lacks social media) and also Stilyagi (https://twitter.com/SugarCSour). Goggalor played the game before they started updating the game with extra content of any substance and never went back, and Stilyagi knows next to nothing about it. This is going to be a fun time.
So what do I plan on doing for this LP?
Good question! I’m going to do all of the main story content and as much of the other stuff as I can do! We’re also going to do all of the episodic DLC at the correct time to do it in the story. However we won’t be doing Comrades. I might dabble in it for a short episode to show it off, but there’s not that much plot wise to it and it wouldn’t be that interesting to watch me grind out the same five missions over and over for slightly better weapons. Oh, also Episode 0 is the Platinum Demo that they delisted. I can’t imagine why they delisted it though.

Hey, please don’t. At all.
Noctis is our main character, he’s the prince of the land of Lucis, and is on his way to get married to his childhood girlfriend. He’s also got a bit of angst and a whole lot of love for fishing.
Gladio is Noctis’ main bodyguard, he’s real gruff and kind of a dick sometimes. Dude really loves Cup Noodle though. Like, REALLY loves it.
Ignis is Noctis’ strategist, cook, butler, good friend, and occasional surrogate father figure. Wait, what do you mean he’s only two years older than Noctis?
Prompto is the team’s goofball and resident photographer, he loves taking photos and definitely knows how to shoot a gun.
