Last month, fans were given new footage of Final Fantasy XV (FF15) and some couldn’t help but say, “Grand Theft Final Fantasy”, when getting a glimpse of the game’s driving system, or, “hugging ’til dawn”, while watching the game’s “Dawn” trailer. The videos are self-explanatory.
The option to drive in FF15 looks like a lot of fun! I still remember the transportation from Final Fantasy VIII (FF8) and how the graphics for it were like, which were ahead of its time back then. Looking at the change between now and then… the franchise has come a long way. I think I’m going to be spending more time driving around and taking scenic routes in FF15. =P The open world in the game looks like a cool place to explore. It reminds me of the time my friends and I took a scenic route by car when traveling from Sydney to Wollongong and there was a view of the ocean. Fun!
As for the game’s Dawn trailer, I think the scene between Noctis and his father was a little too long. Hence, the joke, “hugging ’til dawn” trailer. =P The music in it is still great. I do miss Stella and her character design in the CGI scenes. She looked like a much stronger character than Luna.
With that said, does no Stella mean that the following scene from the game has been entirely scrapped out or are we going to have the same scene, but with upgraded graphics and Luna in Stella‘s place? I find Stella and Noctis‘ discussion on the “light” very interesting because it ties in with a shared experience that they’ve had in the past.
P.S. I find it amusing that right after a time when a number of my posts became more focused on video games, the behind-the-scenes people pulling the strings on Mr. Dodo decided to turn him into a video game character. =P Remember when I wrote #youroppacantcompare in “Final Fantasy VII” Remake – It’s Official!!! Woot! Woot! *Party Time*? #youroppastillcantcompare. xD His PR team are my fans. =P
A bit random, but I’ve noticed that I end up sitting next to people on the trains that have the most funkiest hair colors. A while back it was someone with bright pink hair and last week it was someone with turquoise hair, which kind of looked like candy floss. There was also a girl with her laptop open that I sat next to once and when I glanced over at her laptop, I realized that she was watching an anime. That’s the second time I’ve sat next to someone that watched anime on public transport.
I’ve also noticed that if little kids see me playing a game on my smart phone, they would usually come up to me and watch silently until it’s their time to leave. I find it really cute, because at first they would be moving about and making noise and tugging onto their parents, but when they see me playing a game, they walk up over to me and become silent and watch me play. ^^ The mother of one of the daughters that did that recently told me, “She’s watching you play your game.” Her daughter was talking a lot and moving about before that, but turned silent as soon as she decided to stand next to me and watch me play Bubble Witch Saga 2. Having said that, I sometimes wonder why little kids and even babies are so attracted to smart phones and iPads. Must be something to do with the light emitted from them.
