I don't understand the update/ availability thing, I never updated the game for ages, but when I went back to it, I thought the update downloaded automatically or was mandatory, so I'm not really certain which 'version' I was playing during Chapter 13. I've noticed now in Ch14 I can join multiple hunts (not quests) which wasn't possible upon XV's release.

So if I get the season pass I get a version of similar story elements? Because it's actually cheaper on the PSN to buy the 3 bro chapters separately.

I actually did try to fight Adamantoise a year or more ago at around L40, it was a timed quest and I never would have done it in under 20 minutes at that level. Maybe it was the last update or ch14, but it's no longer timed. When I finally level up after finishing the game I'm going to fight it without the ring.

Ah, well no idea they tweaked the ring, I'm guessing it was the update

The update downloads automatically as long as the PS4 is connected to the internet. Based on what you wrote, you have the most recent update installed. Better get on playing the AC festival. There's new dialogue there.

The season pass just gives extra costumes (mariachi noctis! LOL), weapon/accessories. If you are just after the 3 bros, yes it is cheaper to buy them separately, but if you want the comrades dlc, the season pass is cheaper. I loved the game so the season pass was a no brainer.
I prefer that you play those episodes after you finish the main story since some of them contain heavy spoilers.
The weapons you receive from the dlcs are very powerful in the main game, but it's not worth playing the Episodes early just to receive the weapons as there's other weapons of comparable power. But you can just watch them in youtube if you are cheap. lol

The first encounter with adamantoise just requires you to escape the battle area, hence the timer. The adamantoise in the hunts allow you to fight it til it dies. If I am not mistaken, more hunts open up in chapter 15.

Thanks for the info. I might try to play it on the weekend, just very swamped with life and work.. Sigh

I do recall retreating from the Adamantoise timed hunt. I remember Noctis saying something in dialogue like "What the hell was that thing?", or something to this effect. This was the first time I revisited Lucis' memory while in Altissia. So maybe that's why it's no longer timed in my playthrough.

Yeah I figured as much, so I'm avoiding spoilers until the game is finished. I love XV, and I'll probably splurge, but it won't be until the eoy when I have more time again. A lot of things are happening at the moment, including everyone in my direct family moving, buying or selling properties, so it's not going to happen for months.

Maybe I'll try and chip away at the Assassins Festival first and foremost. But it's just so damn fun doing hunts!

I hope the person in the hospital gets well soon. If I'm not mistaken the AC fest can be done in a few hours.

Thank you and thanks for the tip. It's been a rough weekend, just have to handle it.

I WANT to be playing the new Dragonball Fighterz...Just 10 more days!

My only beef though is why do we have to pay so much more for a bigger roster? I miss when games were just released in a more finished form, and then expansions would come later...rather than as day 1 purchases or something.

Still, I like that for once they aimed for using the real Manga frames as a basis for the move sets. And I do like how they are even including move sets from even very recent episodes of DB Super.

Grond's Final Fantasy + Dynamic Battles Patches.
Never did beat the NES version of FF1, so I might as well play an enhanced and debugged version, no?

Finally got some time to play Zelda BOTW again last week, currently about to start my 4th main overworld dungeon. Hopefully I will get a bit more time as it's a long weekend atm.
Might try to finally play the Assassin's festival in FFXV also.

Still fail at challenging Mega Man ZX Advent expert mode After being stomped critically by the giant spider thing. Damn it's the cruelest way to increase difficulty thus it didn't get any easier  than the time I was teen.
I can pretty understand the reason of ZX series' downfall by now.

EDIT: Damn it, finally arrived the last level surface scene after A TOUGH struggle. Model H is one of the toughest to bring him down thanks to expert mode upgrade while I'm really, really disappointed about Prometheus & Pandora team didn't get any new moves in expert mode. And A shame that the team can't be fought again in the same data once beaten.

EDIT2: Last stage is unimaginably merciless! Damn you Inti Creates! Gonna active cheats in the flash cart because to fight through the cruel gauntlet fair & square is pointless. It's the damn cruel fact that they didn't test the expert mode last stage.
And they gave two sub tanks in boss challenge mode where the bosses use the expert mode version, but only one in expert main game (side mission). I don't get it. Nonsense.

EDIT3: Why is Prairie's appearance missing in ZXA? This makes no sense at all since her plot is not even in "conclusion" progress and Vent/Aile has no comment mentioned about Prairie...Her Guardian base did appear in game (at VERY last of the game though) so the plot is definitely half @$$ed.

The Assassin's Festival won't be part of the Royal Edition. Well, you can just watch youtube videos for it.
