Oh well if it makes it better, the game gets considerably sadder almost instantly as soon as you leave Lucis. And they explicitly tell you how it’s gonna end before the last chapter.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@NEStalgia

I normally prefer happy endings too but I have to say this sad ending is very well done. It feels like a satisfying end to the story.

A bit like FF10. That had a good sad ending too.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Didn't the sequel like overwrite it or something?

There was no sequel. Didn't happen. People imagined it.

I bought the game and I have to admit it is better than I thought!! Ok the big disappointment is the face without emotions when the voices have emotions but apart from that it is a great game.

I have a question for those who played it. I unlocked the skill "MP Up+" with 50 AP points which enables the use of Firaga, Blizzaga and Thundaga. Though, I am not sure how it works the hole spell system. We absorb spell by Rune Stones and we can carry Only one spell at the time, right? Is there any way to cast Firaga for example? There is a hidden button? Or it is automatic?

People give X-2 crap, but just from a gameplay standpoint it's still one of the better entries in the series. Though, yes, the whole doing away with the original ending was pretty cheap, but I did enjoy the myriad of other, more basic endings where she just sorta moves on with her life.

Also I'm enjoying my retread of FF15. Combat-wise, at least. Walking around feels so laborious (they really nailed that true-to-life feeling of body weight) so I mostly just hop from place to place.

Mods are also pretty neat. I have Noctis as his much better older version design and naturally have Gladio in a series of ridiculous and revealing outfits. Though I haven't found any clothes for Ignis or Prompto that "fit" them, yet.

@Geobros spells can be used after finding an elemental charging spot.

They're single use and you don't get to choose the spell (it depends on the element you picked up).

But most maps have them in good quantities.

The skill tree gives them names for each tier, like in other FF games, but they don't really change visually.

@NEStalgia if it helps you at all, I thought the ending was more leaning towards bittersweet than outright sad tbh. Heavy, for sure, but it was a really good way to round off the game, in my opinion.

Think Torna, if you've played that yet. (is that a spoiler? We all knew how Torna was going to end, right? )

What a beautiful signature.

Thanks for your answer Yosheel. So, if I understood well, I unlocked the more powerful spells (Firaga etc....), so when I use spells in battle are more powerful? I don't see big difference to be honest, I feel like I lost 50 precious AP points that I could use for more interesting skills.

Geobros

Yosheel

I think yes, they are more powerful.

There's other perks in that branch of skills though so don't feel like you wasted the points.

You'll get plenty AP, and spells are a nice way to clear out enemies so it's worth keeping them tuned.

@Tsurii Hmm, that makes it sound a little better I suppose. Still, not entirely a fan of sad or bittersweet endings in long, long games (something like Uncharted or something, fine I can see doing it for narrative, but 100+ hour epics that makes it all a little unrewarding.) But at least that sounds better. 15 may still be bumped down the backlog priority list as a result. Playing for a month + just to get depressed as a reward is less inviting that just spinning up DQXI or NNK2.

LOL, well Torna's not a spoiler of Torna but of the main game I guess? Now THAT is a bittersweet if not all out depressing tale from beginning to end since you know from the start that absolutely everything is tragic for everyone, start to finish. Except Mythra. But this doesn't sound much lighter.

I have another question for those who finished the game. We find items that we can sell for money. For original FF XV, there is a list of items that you have not to sell, for example.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132396...

In pocket version, there are items that they are not for selling? Or we have to sell them all?

Geobros

Yosheel

I don't think there's any use for any of the treasure items in this version.

All weapons are worth just money, and there's no side quests that require them.

You'd have to work pretty hard to get 100+ hours out of FF15. It's not a Witcher 3 scale game. You can probably 100% it in like 70-80 hours.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Unless maybe you just really like staring at Gladio for hours

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Dezzy Hmm, what other RPGs would you compare its size to? I mean I'm 40+ hours into Torna but did XC2 in 115 or so (but didn't grind it as complete as Torna.)

I'm still wondering what the remaining DLC will sell for....might be worth waiting to play until they finish making the game next year. I mean I've owned the game for 2 years on 2 platforms now. By year three the game might be ready to start playing!

Seacliff

Does the Pocket Edition ending use the one from the original game's Royal Edition, or the super vague ending from the original release?

Seacliff

Dezzy

@NEStalgia

Well it's about 45 hours for the main game, including the DLC, and then there's probably 20-30 hours of side-missions on top of that. The Xenoblade games are significantly longer in both their main story and the amount of sidequests.
This is comparable to the earlier games in the series. FF4/5/6/7/8/9 were all about the same as this.
I would say that the story does feel complete at this point. The upcoming DLC will largely be additional but I don't think any of it will be essential to understand the story (whereas the first lot of DLC WAS essential to understand it)

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

NEStalgia

@Dezzy Hmm, that doesn't sound wildly different than Xenoblade....65-75 hours of store +side missions seems RPG normal. Still shorter than Xenoblade but that's an excessive case where I'm looking at 50 or more hours just on the DLC prequel

Witcher 3 is bigger?! Dang that was on the list too

Yeah I imagine the story seems complete now...but then...why add the DLC at all? (Maybe the happy ending version is among them. I'd pay for that ) If I've waited so long to play I'll just feel lost if there's more (I do wonder who's buying the extra DLC...I imagine most that wanted to play the game already did.)

@Seacliff I dunno which version it is but the ending goes like this:


Noctis kills Ardyn and goes to sit in the throne room to summon his ancestors... Who proceed to stab him multiple times.

Then he kills Ardyn again in the afterlife and disappears in a cloud of sparkles.

Then after some credits you see a flashback of him the night prior talking to the group in the campsite where he is struggling to express his feelings and tells them they’re the best.

Then you hear daddy king talking about how he wishes Noctis and Luna a happy life together and you see them both sitting in the throne all sleepy and lovey-dovey, you see the picture he took from Promptos collection, and they become the logo in he title screen.

Yeah I don’t know either.
