OH EM GEE

Okay, y'all, it's like this: XIII-3 is apparently too stressful for me to play without a game buddy. I don't know WHY I am incapable of dealing with it solo, but I am, so until I can find someone to actually sit with or who wants to hang out in a voice chat with me, I'm just giving up on it. I LET YOU GO, GUILT.

What this is leading up to is that, you remember that PS4 I bought back in, you know, November? It's finally up and running, and I watched the Brotherhood shorts and Kingsglaive (I could not stop seeing MCU's Pepper Potts in place of Lunafreya oh my god what), and I've knocked the FFXV demo out of the way, gimme dat atomic squirrel.

Carbuncle was actually not atomic in the demo. Very cute, but not glowing. CONFLICTED FEELINGS.

Also I was super bad at it, the major downside of playing FFXIV on controller is that not every other game uses the same button map, NOCT WHY AREN'T YOU JUMPING I'M HITTING TRIANGLE FGSSDFJKFDSSSssss.... right, it's X.

So yeah, bro'd trip. Let's see how we fare.


...

oh right. Gotta wait for it to install. uuugh.







Finally, damn.


YAS, SQUIRREL, GIMME DAT SWEET TUTORIAL. It's nice of Shirtless Wonder to let me beat him up like this.


I have no idea what that was but okay. PROMPTO HOW CAN YOU BE DEAD ON THE FLOOR AGAIN I JUST THREW AN ELIXIR ON YOU FFFFFFFFFFff

anyway time to start properly I guess



FIRE

Chaos? I dunno. Now we're in the throne room with Not Dead Yet Dad, rip dad. :(

Mind your manners? Sir, he doesn't have manners, he is a surly teen. "Oh my gaawd dad, stop talking to me, it's embarassingggg I'm trying to leave, geez." BE NICE TO YOUR DAD, NOCT, HE'S GONNA DIE SOON, I SAW IT IN THE MOVIE.

Car is broken down. Prompto is dead. This is a good start to the bro'd trip. The bachelor party that wasn't.

Who is voicing Gladio, he sounds familiar? Will look up. Also why is he wearing a shirt, I thought he didn't wear shirts?
* he's done a lot of background / additional voices in things, so I've probably heard him before, but it could also just be that Gargling Gravel voice tricking my ears.


CIDNEY WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOUR NAME. Her name is Cidney. Fight me.


I refuse to believe Prompto doesn't know what gil is.


Good god, though, her boobs are gonna be so sunburnt. Ow.


SPHERE GRID OVERWELMING AAAA JUST CLOSE IT


oh, okay, they don't USE gil in Insomnia.



N O A U T O R U N

/scree



These shit talkers, though. I love them already. PICK ON EACH OTHER SOME MORE PLEASE.

Also I am master of the D Stealth rating. Yeaaah, get baaaad.



Ha, so, I accidentally did a dodge somersault and when I got up, Ignis slapped Noct. It was completely unrelated to the tumbling (he wants to go camping), but it was nice timing.

Are all four of them really gonna fit in that tent?


WHAT DO I DO WITH THESE PICTURES?

oh, it says use square to save, haha, rip observation skills.


WAIT WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CAN ONLY HAVE 100 FUCK YOU


what are these marks on the ground at the campsite, anyway

DO WE JUST LEAVE THIS STUFF HERE...? I mean, no one is picking it up....???

four-eyes joke oh no


I CAN'T PRETEND WE'RE WALKING TO THE CAR. WE ARE WALKING TO THE CAR.

Cutscene with large bird, then nothing. ... foreshadowing?


Yippee, car's back.

Immediately get lost. Ignis, plz drive. Noctis needs a nap, anyway.


DOG!!!!!


Oh, it's Umbra. HI, UMBRA.

Anyway, laughing at Ignis refusing to drive at night with his old-man eyes. SAME, IGNIS. I don't care if your excuse is monsters.


OH THE OPTIONS ARE ON A TIMER

RIP


Anyway I guess I'm hunting goblins now. Or I will be when it gets dark? IDK whatever.



Things I enjoy: my party members reeling backwards away from me every time I accidentally draw a weapon (which is often). Less enjoy Gladio yelling at me, which has happened once or twice I'M SORRYYYYY



Also the diner went radioactive. wtf. ow. My eeeyessssss. Why is this happeninggggg

also that Mesmerize hunt mark was waaaay too high level lolol how are we alive, but hey, radioactive diner turned up on the camera roll.


"aww, I think I got a pebble in my shoe.."

"Take it out."

"yeah..."

How are they surviving out here like this.



IGNIS, FFS, YOU DON'T JUST PULL OUT IN FRONT OF TRUCKS, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE RESPONSIBLE DRIVER WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME


No wonder all Noct does in the car is sleep, every time we start driving it turns into teasing about the wedding.


Who's this damn clown. Should we know who this idiot is? Maybe. I dunno.

"What's this, a souvenir?"

"THEY MAKE THOSE?!" Prompto, come on.



I FOUND THE CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT I GOTTA FEED IIIIIIT

WHAT GOOD KITTYYYYYYY


Anyway I was looking for a rock or whatever for that reporter guy who ~somehow~ figured out who we are, oh no, our stealth. It is getting dark but oh well, I am already out here.


OH GOD WHAT IS THAT

DON'T WAKE IT UP

JUST LEAVE

LET'S... MAKE CAMP I LIED THE DARK IS NOT AN OH WELL


Ignis is such a good person. I need an Ignis. Not only does he insist you eat, but he makes the food for you, too.

Prompto just almost killed himself trying to show off so Noct could take a picture PROMPTO NO


I hope that.... ???? thing is gone now that it's day again. D:


IT'S NOT FUCK


AJDSFLK IT

... didn't actually see me false alarm holy fuck don't touch its shadow okaaaay eughgdrjfesljkl

oh god it has sharp teeth


aaaand I fell off the cliff trying to sneak past it LOL noth i n g e v e r c h a n g e s s s s


PROMPTO


So I picked up the rock, DELIBERATELY walked off the cliff, and then DOOFUS starts making panic noises and THE DEMON BIRD AWOKE fortunately it flew off because if it had decided to go on a rampage, well. I'm down here in the road, good luck you three. I don't care if that was a scripted event, I'm blaming Prompto.

NOCT SIT IN YOUR DAMN SEAT, GLADIO PULL HIM BACK DOWN INTO THE CAR, PROMPTO, SIT DOWN AND FACE FORWARD OR SOMETHING SKJDFGNJSADF IGNIS I CANNOT BELIEVE YOu keep driving with them behaving like that ugh I swear

Anyway, yeah, here's your rock that was guarded by some horrible hell-bird with TEETH. But we still cannot boat? Blah.


Also I'm so so annoyed I can only save up to 100 pictures I WANT TO SAVE THEM ALL GDI

o no ignis has gone out and not come back yet?

ignis is kidnapped!


oh no actually he came back, phew, false alarm


uh oh.

RIP INSOMNIA

s-sorry, noct :(

:( :( :(


SOOO I GUESS WE'RE TURNING AROUND

and being bitter

it is okay to be bitter, I do not begrudge you


Eugh, grats, Noct, you're dead, too. Thank goodness none of these ships can look down.


I can't believe Luna found time to change her outfit but walked all the way out of the city in those heels. Yikes. BUT, HELLO PUPPIES!!!


And now we're back to square one. At least we didn't have to push the car here again, it's raining now.




AAAAND that's a wrap on Chapter one (plus a little, really), so let's call it a night. My brother's asking me to run a dungeon in XIV, anyway.

BTW, I streamed today's play, who knows if I'll do it again, but, tada. It will mostly me walked around, getting lost, fighting badly, and listening to these idiots be stupid at each other. I did not save the first round. I am not sure I will save future ones! But if you are bored then maybe I will be playing something badly and you can watch.

(Oh man I can't wait for Uncharted and all the cliff-falling-offs.)


Also I apologize for any missing H's the key keeps sticking on my keyboard uuugh.
