And they throw a Yojimbo alongside them to add salt to the wound! Fucking come on, Tabata, who thought those encounters would be a good idea.

The bad thing now is that I'll probably find myself severely underwhelmed by whatever challenge the main campaign throws at me. Lol

Maybe don't challenge certain dungeons at a low level then lol

I think the recommended level is even like 55 or something.

Yep worst dungeon design ever. I did it again tonight and at one point, all the bombs just stacked on me and I couldn't move. So I just quadcast whatever I had lol

And what is the best way to balance in doing side quests and main without being over-leveled? I want a nice challenge :)

I never found the main quest that difficult aside from a few of the bosses being kinda slow to take down. The last chapter I found brutal but I was around level 45 and it was a challenge but definitely manageable. I done my side quests/hunts all post game. I didn't want my main game ruined by level 70 party making my game boring to me. Not how I want to play.

I done some, like Ultima Blade, asap but as a rule didn't do much side questing until post game. I had most fun this way.

I liked the challenge, it was just the bombs that really grated on me. What makes it worse is that once the "boss bomb"(forgot what its called) explodes it creates a bunch of thunder bombs and things escalate really quick. I had to switch to wait mode and fight some of the messiest fights I've done in a videogame just to deal with them. The other enemies were much more manageable.

Me and another friend kept calling Jared by the name Norman because we just couldn't remember what his name was, and both agreed we thought it was Norman.

It wasn't till our third friend playing through the game asked us about Jared, and we both had no idea what he was talking about and subsequently found out his name was Jared.

I've heard if you visit the church at night and offer a Masamune at the altar you can speak to Jared's ghost and unlock the quest to ressurrect him. He's a secret 5th party member and can use all weapon types just like Noctis. I hope they add Jared dlc

Two is nothing. I fought three, and a naga, and several goblins. At the same time. I didn't dare trying again after that.

I'm still far from most of you guys here, still at chapter 8 lol. I'm really enjoyining it btw but I'm now quite curious to find out how the said "second part" plays out...

I almost like everything of it except how they make use of the OST, they have such an huge collection of underused pieces. Too much silences. Music plays too shortly or gets interrupted too easily. It's so sad because the OST sounds honestly awesome, but you can't grow attached to it because it never plays or it's too brief -.-

Finally completed the main story.

Really liked the ending, thought Noctis was a very likable protagonist. I have a huge crush on Prompto. I like Ardyn as an antagonist a lot, and Gladio a shit.

there were a lot of missed opportunities with this game but I think overall it ended up turning out to be a fun, memorable, emotionally significant experience. Kinda unfortunate the development ran into so many snags, cause with more time in the oven and less cut content this probably would have been my all time favorite game, but it is what it is. I got KH3 and FF7R to look forward to, so it's not like this is some kind of FF/SE swan song.

Guys... it probably has been said a lot, but really... not enough...

The camera in this game is unbelievably attrocious.

I literally cannot believe that they shipped the game, that features this kind of a combat system, with a camera like this.

I usually am not going apeshit about such issues, but the camera in FFXV is beyond the term "bad", its borderline amateurish and its not working like 40% of the times...

What were they thinking really?

I was playing Castlemark dungeon and at the part were there are these 3 iron giants and the Naga the camera work was so utterly pathetic, that I broke down to tears of laughter...

I literally had no fucking idea what the fuck was happening on my screen... i turned the difficulty to easy and just started mashing buttons without giving a shit poping potions until that shit was over with. I just didnt care, that shit is simply an unplayable mess.

Then I went to the boss fight. Hilarious again. What kind of genius thought "hey this camera we have in game and this targeting system is so amazing following up on the action that it is a great idea to have compact rooms (with low ceiling) with large enemies!" I was looking at the polygons on the ceiling for the majority of the encounter.

Excuse me, did they bother playing the game they created?

I honestly cannot think of a game with worse camerawork than this one. And the targeting system is equally as shit as the camera. It looks as if they deliberately tried to make this game have the worst targeting/camera in gaming.

PS: I guess I went full apeshit, and I am not even sorry about it.

PS2: Please dont lecture me about putting the camera to the "far" option. Nothing helps... the camera and targeting are a joke.

Yeah the room with the 3 red giants and Naga in Costlemark is trash, so is the sequence before with like 15 bomb enemies in the tightest space ever.

Oh hey there's a stamina bar. They really should have placed it somewhere less gaudy and intrusive. Maybe a circle around a HUD element that's already present.

On the camera: it's often poor, OK in certain circumstances, and occasionally good. If there's anything I wish they'd focus on hotfix within the next week it's definitely the camera.

My goal for tomorrow is fishing. Now that I have these upgraded headlights I should be able to avoid demons on the road.

At one point in the labyrinth you need to choose between two paths - One leads to the final elevator and the other I'm pretty sure leads to the 3 red giant/ naga room
