Who said the game was over?
So after watching one episode, I reviewed Overlord and then dropped the series. I didn’t give it the benefit of the doubt back then, but I did this time, and I realised how much I was missing and how bad my first review must have been. Overlord is definitely better than what my review (may or may not) say, but then again I haven’t gone back to check what I wrote. You can check it on my Blogger (not giving you a link because this review will sell Overlord to you). Continue reading
Square may have released another episode to make up for the delayed release of FFXV since Bittersweet Memories (Episode 4) had end credits and I assumed that to be the final episode. This one has been confirmed as the final episode, and who cares about an extra episode as compensation? It’s totally worth watching. Continue reading
And for the final episode: Iggy the Baker!
Ignis will probably hate me for that, but who knew he was such a good baker? Apart from Noctis, Prompto and Gladiolus. And the chef. Moving on.
It’s Ignis’ turn this time, as the Sakamoto version of himself (to me he looks like Sakamoto from Sakamoto desu ga?) rather than the version we all know and love (you know the cool looking one) takes to the screen to look after our beloved Noctis, who is now in high school along with now slim Prompto. Time flies when you wait for an episode to air that doesn’t have a notified release date, with the game being delayed by two months. Square Enix why? Continue reading
So episode 3 came out a while ago, and for those of you who follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I had some issues with Internet and I couldn’t do much blogging. It felt like living in a modern version of the Stone Age since everything is pretty much online nowadays, but I can happily say that as of yesterday I am back online! *insert any cheers here*
Moving on from my temporary absence and complaints about Internet issues, it’s time for episode 3 of Brotherhood. As you can probably guess from the name of the episode and who is yet to have a backstory (and from my attempt at something funny at the top of the post), this one is about Gladiolus. He’s Noctis’ bodyguard and close friend, and how their bond strengthens is quite a good one.
By the looks of it, Gladiolus is the oldest out of the group, with Prompto being the closest to Noctis in terms of age. Ignis is probably slightly older than Noctis and the first or second one to befriend him since he’s already with Noctis before Prompto meets him. But that doesn’t really matter; it’s just something I wanted to mention before I got on with the review. ^-^ Continue reading
You gotta love Prompto
Square Enix announced like a couple of weeks ago that the next episode of FFXV – Brotherhood would be released during E3, which turned out to be today! Good times.
We return to see the group travelling to Caem the day after the events of Episode 1 with Prompto driving (I bet Ignis regrets letting him drive) and who seems to have the best eyesight out of the four of them, whilst Noctis catches some royal shuteye. I guess this is what he does when he’s not fighting or being a picky eater. Continue reading
The closest you’ll get to real life RPG…
…unless someone recreates the Nerve Gear from SAO, but then we’d probably be trapped in the game because of the creator going psycho and wanting to kick things up a notch.
But this isn’t SAO and there are no signs of psycho creators, it’s Is it Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon (aka DanMachi). If you’ve followed me on Blogger, you’ll be aware of my first review of DanMachi, which was kinda meh, but hopefully this atones for that, and I’ll also be working on others soon. Continue reading
Square Enix have really gone all out with Final Fantasy XV. At around 3am on 31st March 2016, there was an Uncovering of FFXV, and wow did it amaze. And as you can see, one of the Uncoverings shows Noctis and Co in anime form in FFXV – Brotherhood, a 5 episode anime series. If they’re going to stick with the same duration, then each episode will be around 12 minutes long.
Before the Storm is pretty much an intro as to how the game itself will start, but in a much condensed (and animated) form of course. Young Noctis is the first glimpse of his anime version that we see (not including the preview in the Uncovered show), and his encounter with a monster we’re bound to meet again later on in the series. Fast forward and we’re in the present with Noctis and Co travelling by car. And this is where we find out what’s happening in the world of FFXV. Continue reading
