We're quite excited about Final Fantasy 15, but with Kingsglaive, Brotherhood, and the rest of the extended universe, it's easy to be behind on the story before the game even starts. So, here's Aoife with an explanation of everything that happened up until you select 'New Game.' Subscribe to Eurogamer - http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

idk, my only gripe with Prompto is that whenever he want's to take a picture, it's usually near something hi level and hell bent on killing me, and then a dropship or two of MTs land on me while I'm fighting it. Seriously Promto, why do you insist on leading me to certain death!?!?!

SquareEnix is short of money is the main reason short of FF15 storyline.

Wait. So an economic superpower that still has it's crystal that gives them magical powers, builds a magically technological army and is defeated by nonmagical country? That's like saying that Japan won during WW2 against America, US had the nuke, but Japan still won. This​ shit makes no sense Promto. That is such a sweet story

I'm new to the FF series. I have only played 7 on my phone and was planning on starting 4 after my exams. Is this one a good one to play? I keep hearing mixed reactions.

What sword is in the narrator's background?
Eurogamer (11 months ago)
Frostmourne from WoW! We actually wanted to give it away as a competition prize years ago but it turns out we weren't allowed because it counts as an offensive weapon. It is also extremely heavy. (Johnny)

I'm about 2 hours into the game right now (so no spoilers please!) but does all of this stuff get covered in the actual game at some point? It seems like it would be really important to know, especially for someone like me who is a first time FF player.

Can't tell if she's saying "pyres" and that it means something else or if she's saying "powers" because she has an accent.

This is how to make a review people not say words wrong not pre-judge, not play a game and rush through it... This is professionally done !!

Am I the only one who just can't support Prompto? As soon as the guy open his mouth I want to kick the shit out of him. His face, his voice, his attitude, his lines, I hate everything about him.In a movie I would call him a cast error. One of the first thing I tried in the game was to check if friendly fire was possible by trying to beat him. Until now I really like and enjoy this game but I really think Prompto is ruining a big part of the pleasure I have to play it. I am surprised to see that people likes him.

It's kind of a shame that the prequel stories are more in depth than the actual main game story. I hope Sqenix sorts that out with the update.

How do you like the game so far?
Maddie Cupak (1 year ago)
I wish there were female party members. You'd think at least like....one. Or two. And you could still totally focus on the theme of brotherhood? I don't know why people try to defend this game's lack of women by saying the theme is brotherhood as though that theme requires the exclusion of women? Haven't you ever seen FMA? Or like....anything ever since really most things are about men and brotherhood of some kind and still manage to have at least some women with screen time? But instead there's no female party members. None. And don't say fucking Luna. She barely shows up or takes an active role. Most of the characters that actually get significant screen time and development are men. This game is such a sausage fest. And Christ, have more than just white/ambiguously Japanese people. Hell, even a non-straight person. The world of this game is supposed to be based in "reality" but it doesn't look like any reality I live in. It's all white straight men. I legitimately do not understand how I am supposed to relate to this and call this reality.

Prompto is basically an HD version of Zell from FFVIII. No wonder why I like his enthusiasm so much.

As I heard Maximillian Dood say, they are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I can't help but see it, too. Noct=Leonardo Ignis=Donatello Gladeolus=Raphael Prompto=Michelangelo Excuse the spelling of the names, I'm sure they're not all correct.
Alex Cummings (1 year ago)
The game is full of massive plot holes and on a broad spectrum very disappointing to me personally. all of these dungeons you go to have no explanation they just exist. I find myself asking why or how many times throughout the game.

Can you do something similar for the main story? I love the game but the main story is a confusing mess.
Vic Light (1 year ago)
Oh my god, can someone at Square give Aoife a job? She did a MUCH better job of explaining FFXV than they've managed to do. Even though I watched Kingsglave, it was pretty poorly told and towards the end I got totally lost. It DID give me some context for FFXV but I didn't even know the Brotherhood anime stuff even existed.
ffjason (1 year ago)
After beating the game and still not knowing if there was a story or not to the game, it sure would have helped if all this info was PART OF THE MAIN FUCKING PRODUCT!
Fatal Existence (1 year ago)
i agree i beat the game and have so many hours and i still don't really understand the game or what i was doing but i was enjoying it a bit with the simple combat and cool cutscenes still wish i had more interest in the story which i was confused about.
zubair rahman (1 year ago)
most fav character-NYX......its a shame they killed him...
This was a good watch for an FF noob trying to decide whether or not to buy XV. But dayyymn that was alot of names that got thrown at me, I guess I should watch Kingsglaive. I do have one question though, is the background music in this vid the music used while exploring in XV? Because that was really enjoyable.

I hope there's going to be a follow-up video explaining the whole story now that the game has come out. I was disappointed with the story sorta 3/4th's through, but I'm guessing it's because I didn't understand some story point. Would greatly appreciate a quick review.
Lin Rook (1 year ago)
No wonder the game has gaps in it. I never watched any of this stuff before playing it and I was so confused.

Hamdan Alharbi (1 year ago)
Lol man , we ganna be out of the game soon. I believe what they want for a male protagonist nowadays is to have a girlish face , sensitive.. well not so macho .... You can see this trend in most video games ...
JB89 (1 year ago)
+Hamdan Alharbi Nyx looks like 30. Is 30 old now? If so I'm in trouble in a few years. ;(
Hamdan Alharbi (1 year ago)
+JB89​ I know what you mean but and I was thinking the same but i am guessing they choose the current protagonist because not all players want to play a mature old male . Similar thing happened with Metal Gear series when they made raiden the main character for MGS 2 because the creator of the game got a letter from a little girl saying she "she doesn't want to play as an old man" lol that why we have redian
JB89 (1 year ago)
+Hamdan Alharbi I know there were probably tons of rewrites, but after I saw the movie I thought "shouldn't Nyx be the protagonist of this game instead?"
Hamdan Alharbi (1 year ago)
+JB89 I agree with you I felt the movie had a better story than the game ... Somewhat the last chapters felt disappointing.

Phyrrax (1 year ago)
I think the beginning of FF15 is pretty anticlimactic. Without Kingsglaive, I wouldnt really get why Noctus' father send them on a road trip, I mean yeah they tell its to meet his future wife, but not why and who she is (maybe it gets explained when you do the historic info part in the tutorial?). Maybe they tell it later, but I would have preferred some kind of narrated short FMV-sequence that explains the political situation surrounding this road trip and then start the game.

So bummed I wasn't able to pre-order this. I'll be able to get it next week when I'm paid though. I just find all the pre-order exclusives very annoying. They should just include it in the game. If anyone has a spare code for A Kings Tale or just plain don't want it, I would be eternally grateful if you messaaged me the code! Also would appreciate it if anyone had the Blazefire Saber code as well, as a XIII fan that would make my life complete! I'd definitely prefer Kings Tale over it though.

Keith P. (1 year ago)
There's no way they could: 1. make Nyx so awesome in KG 2. ot show him actually dying and 3. not have him make some type of appearance in XV. The camera pan out before he "died" confirmed nothing.
I havent actually played the Demo. Is it worth playing through for the take of getting invested in the story, or is it just messing around hitting stuff as child Noctus?
YongYea (1 year ago)
+The Big Moist no, but you can still get a good idea of what the game is like. if you have basic level japanese will be even better. I think the voice acting in the japanese has more impact
YongYea (1 year ago)
make a japanese psn account and download the FF15 judgement demo. its the first 1.5 of the game with plenty of content, i clocked in at 8 hours gameplay so far, if you avoid the main quest.
+The Big Moist Alright thanks, i guess i'll give it a try. I mean it's free. :P Any idea how long it is?
Turdsley (1 year ago)
Wow! No idea why I clicked on this video. I don't think anyone could explain any of this too me.
