I beat Ocarina of Time for the millionth time today. Also got a copy of Resident Evil 7, hopefully I'll have time to play through that soon.

Aside from Sonic Mania, I've been hammering FFXV this break. I'm nearly done with the hunts in general and have reached L7 Hunter rank.

At L63, one shotted Adamantoise (on the first try) which took less than 5 minutes, probably been one of my better recent achievements.

I plan to do the hunts, not level up, finish the game (I'm right near the end) and then level up and complete Final Training. Such a good game, I've been on hiatus from for so long.

Did you do the ring magic to one shot that turtle?  ;)
I missed playing that game since I'm so busy. sigh. Although I'm just farming MV2s (the most OP accessory found in chapter 15) now in the main game. And I still haven't started comrades dlc. I'm just bummed that they are only releasing Nyx's face with PS+ subscribers in Asia/Japan. Boo.

Final Training is awesome! Oh and don't forget to visit the hidden dungeon on chapter 15. :)
The Assassin's Festival ends this month, if you haven't played it yet.

Assassin's festival ends?? Can't you just download it and play it later on? I have zero time :/
I've considered purchasing Gladio, Ignis, and Prompto's chapters, but I don't have any time now that I'm back at work.. Shit is crazy right now.

Edit: Re Adamantoise, yes I did :)

Ends at Jan 31. I think. You may still play it pass the deadline provided that you have not done any updates to the game, or you are not connected online, maybe?
Just get the season pass, the comrades dlc (you don't need ps+ unless you want to play with others, it allows an offline mode) also has story elements that would fit for chapter 14. They have stuff that can be used in the main game, plus the season pass unlocks the OP ragnanok blade and other things. Episode Ignis is the best of the three bro episodes, in my opinion.

Try fighting the Adamantoise without the ring, as what I did way back before they tweaked the ring. LOL

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

Lost Valley 2003 finished thanks for Jop sharing the guide! The puzzles are unforgiving and a lot of punishment after reaching the northmost of valleys... The game could be a lot better if used a more polished engine (keeps crashing a lot on my Win7 laptop)!!
NOTE: The control of ability value is just the worst of all time. That didn't make sense at all as I would thought if mig totally lost his mind in the Lost Valley.

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!

The hunts will forever be there, but the AC Festival will not. Get a move on and play the festival! :)

I technically haven't touched my PS4 in almost a month. LOL

Oh God Shiroi, ontop of everything else, I'm waiting in the hospital with someone suffering dehydration. So yeah, bad odds against me  :P

Oh SP2, I'll keep my ears open.. E3 will be around the corner in no time.

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.
Jazzyvania: Symphonies of the Knight now available on CD/ Digital platforms! Groove on!

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?
