FUCK CHAPTER THIRTEEN TO THE DEEPEST PITS OF HELL, my god.

Basically, there's like a five chapter chunk between chapters nine and fourteen that is terrible and the anti-fun, but chapter fifteen is trying to convince me that I did like the game really...

So I finished the game! I am still turning the ending over in my head, but here is initial thoughtsI think - and please believe me when I say that I never thought I'd hear myself say this about anything - that it needed to crib more from FFXIII.

HEAR ME OUT, OKAY.

(Cutting for spoilers RIGHT through the game and Chapter 13 Verse 2 and also for "Nah, mate, I can totally fix this, my uncle's a mechanic game designer.")

spindizzy: (We'll skip to the part where I kick ass)
This is all angry venting, I may change my mind about all of this later in the game, but right now I am pissed. Venting my spleen might help before I go back to it. :\

  • FUCK COSTLEMARK TOWER AND ALL WHO SAIL IT. I ended up getting lost in the maze and doing the miniboss room FOUR TIMES. I was level 64 at the time, it was OBSCENE.

  • Total item cost of Costlemark Tower:
    • 99 potions

    • 2 mega potions

    • 27 elixers

    • 35 hi-elixers

    • 23 Phoenix Downs

    • 8 megalixers

    • 13 Maiden's Kisses


    FUCK THIS TOWER.

  • I am SUPREMELY bad at the fishing mini-game; I have made it to level 8 in the fishing skill and to be perfectly honest I do not even care anymore, the Vesper Gar and Gladio's giant fish can stay in the lake forever for all I care.

  • My headcanon is that Prompto crushes on pretty much every girl he meets, and also maybe like five dudes? And it is just an open secret that he has a crush on Gladio that he is never planning to do anything with.

    (My headcanon for how this is revealed is pretty that Prompto mentions it over breakfast one day while they're still students, while Noctis is still like 75% asleep and incapable of giving a fuck. And Noctis manages to scrap together enough care to ask "Really?" Because this is clearly important to Prompto, but Noctis has also pretty much been devoted to Lunafreya since before he even understood a) what that meant, and b) that there were people in the world who weren't, and is still probably figuring out how having an actual sexuality works from Prompto's desperate raptures.

    "Uh, dude, have you seen Gladio?"

    *Gladio walks past, taking off his vest top to put on that button down shirt that he never bothers to fasten for Reasons, probably either sweaty from morning training or damp from the post-training shower*

    "... Makes sense, yeah," Noctis says, and that's pretty much the strongest reaction Prompto gets.)
spindizzy: (*blinding realisation*)
(Q: Susan, aren't you like seven chapters and 60 levels into the game?
A: SHHHH.)

SUDDENLY why Noctis is so protective of the fucking junkpile of a car makes sense! There are points in the game where I'm just like WE HAVE SIXTY THOUSAND GIL, WE CAN JUST BUY A NEW CAR but now it makes more sense.

I am enjoying FFXV but god I wish some of the characterisation from the side-stories made it into canon.
