FFXV : Windows Edition is a worthy buy for the current next-gen games though :3

FFXV is more like giant tech demo than an actual game, i played it on PS4, the main gameplay last about 20 hours, and still need to pay for dlc. a 10 year delayed game at that price is a rip off. having to play it at 4K texture is for eye candy, it is an very overrated game nonetheless.

I think you have take it slow and enjoy all the DLC's and I'm sure PC gamers are more happy than PS4 because the release date is way too different. I'll probably be happy with the porting because it's possible now that more FF series are at Steam!

Game like Travian is a good example of reviving the dead genre, the text-based web browser genre... Utopia.

I wish there are more of that.

This game is very story driven. It reminds of Final Fantasy Tactics... that sob story.

Personally, I like indie games. Not a big fan of Triple A... with exceptions like BioShock series. I don't think Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is a Triple A title.

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows - made by a Singaporean developer



They Are Billions is a decent game too.

Oh no , FFXV is not the most perfect game ever released ?

How dare you say that on lowyat forum ranting.gif vmad.gif

Do you know we have many , many, many FF Fanbois here . All that Final Fantasy nostalgia has blinded them , made them angry , made them "appreciate " how much SquareEnix is trying to milk the brand. Final Fantasy XV pocket edition ? Final Fantasy XV Mobile games ?FFXV Fishing VR game ?

If you dare criticizing FFXV in any sort of way , be prepared for the consequence . For eg , I have gotten Death threats & Suicide Threats from Lowyat PM just by saying FFXV is less than perfect. According to these fanbois logics , I should be GRATEFUL because Square Enix is trying to make me pay for even m0ar DLC after the first season pass , but not the fact that they couldn't finish the game 16 months after its initial release date.



I am not your FF hateboi. I went to almost every activity FF15 had in Malaysia , from their conference in KLCC to the launch party in BTS , where they were showing quite some Malaysian developers and Studio actively participating in creating the game. Made me all teary in the eyes for a while . And my negative experience of FF15 has nothing to do with them, these folks in Malaysia have definitely did a great job throughout the development rclxms.gif


Despite of all these , the game is still a trainwreck in almost every other aspects beside the graphics /musics.
Scrapping off Stella and replace her with the generic Luna , biggest villains in the game miraculously vanished without explanation , the railroad driving was just an annoying way to waste your time ( until they fixed it in the recent patch ) . Side quests are bland and poorly designed , hideous amount of Summons . And through countless patches of attempts to fix many of these issues , it is still far from ideal.


Honestly , at this point FFXV is just a shame of the brand 's name . Royal Edition ? HAHAHAHA , they are making more DLC just to milk your wallet , what's the point of even buying a Season Pass to begin with ? One Season pass alone is not enough to fix the game , they need more .

They were supposed to move 10 millions copies of the game to make profit, but they only end up shipping roughly a total of 5-6 millions copies . The game has also garnered incredible amount of negative feedback from Amazon Japan , where many of the Japanese hate the game so passionately as far as to calling it " Betrayal of Square Enix ". All of these have made SquareEnix desperate.


And on top of all of these disasters , do you know the game was marketed as Queerbait ? (Yea they called it Bromance or w/e )
The writer is fairly new and she has done works mostly for Yaoi and BL VN games. This has got to be the biggest joke from Square Enix for a while.

Wow that's quite an explanation. For most of it I do agree......
I will give credit to the the game visuals and music (I'm not a music person I but I think the music are ok). The characters there are uninteresting, generic at best. Noctis is brat, and the yellow head happy go lucky boy, a macho and mature man, and another cool and strategic guy. I can't even remember their names....... YAOI? I think their friendship is like child's play, I don't feel their bond at all, the spec guy went blind, they were like.... OK that's bad, let's go on like nothing happen, small quarrel here and there. Dlc talks about their back story, the game tells so little and uninteresting they are I forgo the Dlc, because I know I gonna be boring

Thief is one of the finest in the stealth genre.

Why AAA sucks?





Former staffs from Looking Glass created Deus Ex series.
