Prompto Is My Boyfriend

Illustration by Angelica Alzona I’m leaning against a tree. The back of my shirt is beginning to itch and my palms are sweaty. It’s a humid August day, but on our ride home he insisted we stop. Advertisement “Isn’t that a nice tree?” he had said. It is: the branches hanging low, filtering the light like fireflies. There was no power I could have possessed that would have stopped him from taking a picture there. “What’s bokeh mean, sweetheart?” I say as he adjusts his tripod set up. His lean arms are at a ninety degree angle, his fingers gliding lightly across his SLR, fussing with the focus and the aperture. “You say it all the time about your pictures but I’ve been too embarrassed to ask.” Advertisement “Why were you embarrassed?” he asks, leaning down and pressing his face to his camera, squinting through the viewfinder. “Because you know a lot about cameras. I didn’t want you to think I was stupid or something.” The only film camera I’ve got is a Holga, a cheap toy camera people get into because the plastic lens READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Final Fantasy XV Narrative Showcase Earmarked for GDC 2017

Square Enix will be in attendance at the 2017 Game Developers Conference, and we now have word that the Japanese publisher will host a narrative showcase of Final Fantasy XV. Designed to offer a behind-the-scenes peek at the creative process, Dan Inoue, Lead Writer and Localization Director, will host the event at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. There’s currently no mention of an exact date and time, but we understand Inoue plans to divulge how a “fantasy based on reality” came to exist, including all of the many nuances involved in crafting a cohesive and, crucially, compelling story. Here’s a primer from the folks behind GDC: “So come learn how the fantasy came to life — you’ll walk away with techniques for bringing realism into a fantasy world, insight into the challenges of maintaining a cohesive narrative across companion projects and promotions, and strategies for turning the universe to your advantage, all with a unique AAA JRPG spin.” Final Fantasy XV touched down late last year and has already shipped upwards of 6 million copies. GDC 2017, meanwhile, begins on February 27 and will continue through until March 3. [Source: GDC] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

Final Fantasy XV Passes Six Million Copies Shipped

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XV has now moved over six million copies since launch in late November.

Final Fantasy XV Player Glitches Out Of Bounds, Explores Second Half Of The Game

The second half of Final Fantasy XV ditches the open world road trip in favor of a series of linear areas connected by train, which raises an obvious question: How much of that was meant to be bigger? One player did some digging to try to find out. Advertisement Using an out-of-bounds glitch to escape the invisible walls of Cartanica (the mine area), Fotm Hero was able to explore the entire second continent, as showcased in this video: It’s a fun video, full of sprawling, unused environments and floating train tracks. Also fun: Fantasizing about exploring that big snowfield. We may never find out exactly how much of Niflheim was planned to be explorable before Final Fantasy XV’s various reboots and directional shifts. These areas certainly hint that bigger things were planned. Still, it’s worth keeping in mind: Environment art is relatively easy to implement. Far harder would be filling those environments with people, quests, and real content. Plus, a lot of this stuff may exist simply to give you something to look at when you’re on the train.

Watch This Final Fantasy XV Player Explore the Niflheim Open World Using a Glitch

[embedded content] Final Fantasy XV players recently discovered a glitch whereby they are able to explore the game’s unfinished second open world during its linear half. A number of videos have since popped up, showing a little bit of Niflheim but this particular video above by YouTube user Fotm Hero gives you a pretty good look at it. Check it out if you’re curious. Fotm Hero writes: NOTE that only the area around Cartanica is fully loaded, that’s why it’s well detailed compared to the rest. To access the other zones, I had to avoid an infinite loading screen, so those areas aren’t loaded. I’m trying to find a way to glitch directly from Tenebrae or Gralea.

Conan’s Clueless Gamer Is Getting Its Own Series

Because No One Else Can Insult Our Favorite Games and Get Away with It Like Conan In case you are not familiar with Conan O’Brien, first off, you need to rethink your life; next, start watching him asap. Besides the fact that he is an outstanding and lovable comedian, he delivers the funniest set of ‘reviews’ that make no sense. We’re talking game ‘reviews’ from his popular series Clueless Gamer. In the show, Conan provides commentary alongside a guest celebrity, as he does his best to navigate whatever game he’s playing. Usually, it’s a triple A Title. His most recent ‘reviews’ include Final Fantasy XV with Elijah Wood and Battlefield 1 alongside Terry Crews. Originally a segment from his Late Night with Conan O’ Brien show, it seems Clueless Gamer will be getting its own episodes. It started out as rumors saying Conan might shift from a nightly to a weekly series. But TBS President Kevin Reilly recently clarified the matter to The Hollywood Reporter; instead, aspects of the show are being reorganized. Since the comedian’s YouTube uploads consistently go viral, Reilly stated: “We’ve gotten to the point where video game companies are sending us their new product for us to play and make fun…
