Life comes at you fast.

Continuing.


I've heard there is an ACTIVELY AWFUL gameplay mechanic in here, but also that it may be okay since they put in an update. Guess we'll see.


I don't wanna go to Gralea, only bad things will happen there.

Prompto, though.


I could buy the crystal being able to banish daemons, I mean, Insomnia explicitly didn't have a daemon problem.


Not sure if that noise is daemons outside or someone snoring. (It's obviously daemons, but it sounds weirdly a lot like snoring.)


What do you mean the weapons are stuck.

oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit ARDYN I fkjsljdjgskndwaleeepovdfl

Thank the gods and Cidney we got those headlights.


oh this poor car



Did we lose a door or did Ignis just open his really, really fast?

He just opened it really fast.


TT____________TT



Do we seriously have any other option? I mean, I'm open to suggestions.


Don't look back at the car, don't do it.


Damn it, I knew that was going to happen as soon as Gladio stopped moving just on the other side.


WAIT I

HAVE TO PICK ONE?

Do I get to do the other later?

I guess it doesn't matter, I can't just leave Noct alone, even if he'd probably manage better that way.


Run.


I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO BE CAREFUL EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IT'S NOT GONNA MAKE A DIFFERENCE oh, good, we're not dead. Yet. That was stressful.



(How did they get in? Haven't you been listening? They've been COMING from here.)


For a spell called Death, it just isn't killing very well.

Oh, I have to hold it.


Man, I hope those other two morons are doing okay. They don't even have magic.


This place has seen better days and was, possibly, abandoned in a hurry.


Holy, nice.


Hmm, you can switch stories at the rest point. ... Stats and gear do not carry over? How does that work?


ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT. Take a nap, Noct, I'll be back.


MOTHER FUCKER IT'S FUCKING ARDYN AGAIN

How come sometimes he has a hat and sometimes he doesn't.

I DO NOT TRUST THESE WEAPONS WHAT ARE THEY REALLY

NOCT, HAVE YOU TOLD THEM WHAT THIS FUCKER'S BEEN UP TO?

BECAUSE YOU REALLY SHOULD HAVE, IF YOU DIDN'T.


Don't you dare say thank you.

GOOD.

We don't need help, just heft Ignis over your shoulder and run.


(It is, by the way, extraodrinarily suspicious to me that neither of them heard Noct yelling. It's only a freaking train car, not a massive wall.

A "situation," the radio calls it.

Failure to evacuate will result in incarceration?! What the hell?


Level 24, hahaha, oh, man.



(QUESTION: HOW CAN WE BE FINDING POTIONS TO USE WHEN WE HAVE NO NOCT, AND IF WE DID HAVE A NOCT, HE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO MAGIC THEM INTO BEING USEFUL?)

(Oh, we have Phoenix Down. Maybe those can be imbued beforehand?)


Ardyn, stop talking. No, I'm NOT listening to you, because you're a piece of shit and I don't take advice from feces.

Ugh, but Ignis is going so I guess I'd better follow him at least.


Did we find the secret passage, or did the secret passage find us?


You can push the rolling chairs around.


They wiped everything? That's sure not suspicious at all.



Hm. What's happening to that dude. Emperor. Whatever his name is. He sure is spewing black.

Ravus, I honestly have no idea what to make of you. Like. You fucking helped killed dad and tried to steal the ring.

Whoops, spoilers, it's Noct and he's ahead of me in the story. (OR IS IT because honestly I don't trust anything anymore, and considering I could have started with this storyline, I doubt they'd put in much I'm actually going to do over there.)

Wow, yeah, clearly not Noct. He doesn't strike me as the 'suddenly able to summon his weapons again and immediately start lobbing arms off' type.


What the heck was that video, though. Why was it left? What is slimeball getting at?!



Oh, an Iron Giant. Yippee. AND it's back to being a higher level than I am. :')



ANOTHER state of emergency! Busy night. Day. Whenever it is.


Found the crystal (on a monitor).

What the snap is this thing?

It can talk. Oh, it's him. Maybe. ???

Iedolas, I had to go look up the spelling. It had his face for a second, didn't it?


Stop trying to bully Ignis, he hasn't even got a status bar and is, as best I can tell, currently immortal.


OH SNAP "ALTERNATIVE FACTS" Ignis, you glorious bastard, I love you


Yeah, sure you can, Ardyn. Maybe you have Prompto (FOR WHAT PURPOSE?!) but I'm choosing to not believe a word from you.


LALALA IGNORING YOU


Woah what

"Anybody who hasn't turned yet" ?!?!?!

what

IS HAPPENING??

Who's Callux?

Who is this guy on the radio, poor bastard. We may meet him, and he may end up being an asshole, but right now he's a poor bastard.


A fake news shout out, too. Square, I'm so proud of you.


Hear what?

Guess he's getting super hearing to compensate for the blindness.


...


Uh oh. This isn't where I left Noct.




Time to pull my first Save And Reload. I don't like doing that, it's .hack//SIGN's fault.




Well, Holy's fun.


I'M NOT POWERLESS, IN CASE YOU HADN'T NOTICED, BUT ACTUALLY NEVER MIND, YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THAT IF YOU DON'T YET


And I have full confidence that my friends are fine, actually.


wwwhyyyyy is "Hide" an option? Now I'm nervous as hell.


Oh, Rogue Axemen. Whatever.


Hm. They look funny (even Noct think so), there's abandoned clothing, and some guy on the radio was talking about folk turning. Not sure how or why, but I bet these "MT" used to be people. Aaaand now I'm scared to death for Prompto ALL OVER AGAIN.


SPEAKING OF PROMPTO - HALLUCINATION TIME AGAIN

;___;


aaaughdljfsksknasm I don't like these dead things grabbing me.


noooo what's gonna happen when I reach for who or whatever this actually is at the top of these stairs.


I can walk right through him. ;_;

THIS GAME IS A BULLY

NO REACTION AT ALL, NOCT?


WHERE IS HE


/just screams forever


y'all what

I'm looking at this chair and desk and it says RESCUE but there's nothing there??


NOW THERE'S A DEAD BODY

THIS IS SOME SILENT HILL-LEVEL BULLSHIT GOING ON RIGHT NOW, SQUARE



I think something's glitching, I'm gonna do another reload.


Yeah, okay, he didn't stop at the top of the stairwell this time.


GOD that stupid body falling at me when I opened the door scared me this time, too.


At least this spider boss is a cakewalk.


Noct, how can he be calling for you when he appeared to be unconscious in a chair half a minute ago?


THIS IS STILL SOME SILENT HILL-LEVEL BULLSHIT, SQUARE



Interesting that I can't go back through these boxes.


Ardyn, what ARE you?


Ah, I remember this elevator from the Gladio and Ignis show.


I'M PROTECTING MYSELF JUST FINE, THANK YOU.


Hmm, the Gargantua just respawned back there. Jerk.



HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO SURVIVE THIS FALL? Shit, Noct.


Oh, we found Ravus.


Guess we can still get weapons, even if we can't access them. (WHY WOULD YOU DISMISS A WEAPON WHEN YOU FINALLY HAVE ONE NOCT AUGH)


Hm, so they were letters to Luna that got thrown at his corpse.


Oh, I can access it!


What's this smoke? Well, it's green, so I'd guess SOMETHING POISONOUS.

IT'S COMING FROM THOSE VENTS WE JUST SAW IT ERUPT OUT OF, IDIOT.


STOP LAUGHING I'M COMING TO KILL YOU IT'S PROBABLY WHAT YOU WANT, ANYWAY


NOCT JUST STEAL SHIT, WHAT DO YOU MEAN "SHOP" FFS


Your alternate facts are getting old, man. I'm too mad at you to take any of these insults to heart.

Getting pretty good at figuring which ones are gonna get up and attack me.


Tragedy could strike at any moment? TRAGEDY STRIKES EVERY TIME YOU TALK TO ME.


Oh, it's Chaos again. Or whatever its name really is. The talking daemon.

Wow, he was way easier on the other path. Elevator escape!


Did the power go out or was it simply shut off? Because I know what my money's on.



Sorry, Ardyn, the game's glitches have already done worse than you could just by being a disembodied voice.


FARAS, FUCK OFF.


God, do these halls ever end?!


Yeah, we know you all do stupid shit with daemons, sorry, that's not news.

I guess making them is new, but I can't say I'm entirely surprised.

Maybe Ardyn is a daemon.

Maybe Ardyn is Faras. They both suck, after all. (Nah, though, because Faras is totally Iedolas, it has his face.)


Yeah, I've killed a lot of things, if you have a point, could you fucking make it already?


This quarantine of West Gralea report. I don't like it.


That's sick, you've been turning people into robots? Creepy little shits, the lot of you.

Seriously, though, if you actually felt bad about it, you could have stopped sending them to kill me at aaaany time. I won't feel bad about defending myself, though, even from poor bastards who used to be human. Sorry not sorry. ... Probably doing them a favour, honestly.


What the fuck is he implying here. POINTED REUSE OF THE WORD "EMTPY" WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING TO MY FRIEND. FUCKING I AM NOT MOVING FAST ENOUGH.


Where are the patients going? Are they turning into daemons and dissolving into wherever it is they spawn from? Or being stealth abducted somehow and turned into MTs? Or...??


/kills another MT because even if they were human once, it's not like we can do anything for them at this point anyway


Oh, this report confirms they're turning into daemons. Dun dun dun.

MTs were people, daemons were people... the only thing you won't ever convince me of is Ardyn being a people.


what are they keeping inside? PROBABLY FORMER PEOPLE, LET'S BE REAL.


How will this story end? HOPEFULLY WITH YOU DEAD, ASS.

MT in the boxes, whee.


Where are my friends? WELL, YOU'VE GOT THE BEST ONE OF THEM, YOU PIECE OF SHIT. And Gladio and Ignis are poking around at their own pace, and Gladio, thankfully, seems to have got over his "throw Ignis to the wolves" mentality, so I highly doubt he's fallen into anything. The only emotion I'm currently experiencing in LOATHING OF ARDYN, and I'm pretty sure Noct feels the same way.

AND AT LEAST I HAVE FRIENDS, LOSER.



Ah, I've finally caught up to where I got dumped after doing the sidestory! Holy crap, that skipped me past a lot.

Aight, but is that ACTUALLY Gladio and Ignis? I might actually believe that, since THIS IS WHERE I GOT LEFT. Poor choices, game.


HI GUYS. Let me out, please.


Yeah, you wouldn't know about having friends. Fucker. That's what happens when you turn people into daemons and/or robots. NO FRIENDS.

Aight who's gonna wait at this end of the hall in case fuckwad turns the electricity on again.


Ignis, apparently, hope we showed him where the switch was.

It's clear, come on.


Cells.



IS IT REALLY PROMPTO BECAUSE I'M GONNA CRY OH MY GOD my chiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiild

OF COURSE I WAS WORRIED ABOUT YOU WHAT THE FUCK KIND OF - yeah what noct just said, honey what did ardyn say to you because i'm gonna split his stupid, ugly skull open, and if it doesn't kill him then at least it will probably be painful I'm so sorry it took so long oh my god


Why is "not really" even a choice, what kind of soulless monster would even think for a second of hitting that?!

What even is this thing, ugh, it's awful, PROMPTO I'M SORRY. THERE AREN'T NEARLY ENOUGH HUGS IN THIS SCENE FOR MY LIKING.


Finally got everyone back, ugh, let's all get some damn rest.


I hear nothing, Ignis, but okay. Let's go looking.


Like, really. Nothing.



oh honey, oh no, you really aren't CAN WE PLEASE GET A FUCKING GROUP HUG BUTTON IN HERE I'm so proud none of these idiots are being weird or awful about it I just *sobs*




yeaaah looks like I was right about Faras. Totally Iedolas.


oh good, now everything's back.


ONWARD.


Speaking of Faras.

Who has this poor idiot been listening to? (Ardyn, duh.)



I CAN'T BELIEVE HE STILL HAS HIS CAMERA

*cries all over the place some more*


I'm a fucking mess.



It's a damn comedy trying to herd all these guys out the door after resting.


Holy shit, Ravus, I never really liked you, but you sure as hell didn't deserve anything like this.


I DON'T WANT TO GO ON ALONE I JUST GOT YOU ALL BACK!!


FINE, I'll go, but y'all are getting a megalixer before I split.

I'm not betraying them if they flat out told me to fucking go, shitpiece.


IF ANY OF YOU COME BACK PERMANENTLY MAIMED AGAIN, I AM GOING TO BE SO UPSET ABOUT LEAVING


OF COURSE, CONSIDERING HOW THE SECOND HALF OF THIS GAME HAS GONE, THEY'LL PROBABLY ALL JUST DIE


Did it always look like this? What have they done to it?


I'm calling this uncurable scourge you want to blather about "Ardyn," that cool with you?


Sorry, man, I still don't feel bad for you, because you're still a piece of shit. And just as I take no advice from feces, so too do I feel no sympathy for it.

At least they're all still alive, ugh.

Take your ugly fedora and leave.





THAT WAS A LOUD VOICE


The heck is thi --- Bahamut.


Who are the other two, anyway? Is Bahamut one of them?

The Accursed is clearly Ardyn, but what the hell is this scourge?


ANYWAY GUESS IT'S DIE TIME. ffffffffffffffffffffffffuck this game and its upcoming FFX ending. It's okay, Noct. There's still two chapters left, so you're not gonna die just quite yet.







The heck's with the beard? Where am I and how did I get here?

And where did I put my phone.

Never mind, found it.



Umbra. Hi, puppers.

Oh geez, what has happened now.


Angelgard. How did we get here?


I can't believe Umbra can drive a boat.



Long enough to get face scruff. Geez, it's dark and gross.


And full of daemons. And ominous water. Aaaand. For real, what happened.


World of Ruin, indeed.



Tonberries.

Well, Ramuh's still around, at least.


I just remembered I had like three quests that required me to go to Altissia that I definitely never actually did. Whoops.

Who is the note from and did they know I was gonna get out of the crystal or just hope I would?

damn, the beard makes you look old, though, Noct.


Level 84?! Let's not!

hm, they seem to be rooted in the wall. Good, no chasing.



YOU WHAT

IS THIS A JOKE???


TALCOTT WAS SMALL??????

He got two more cactuars.



T E N YEARS?!

LIKE

10?!


AN ENTIRE DECADE?


I

WHAT
I

skfdmnksmdasf??????



I'M SORRY, I APPEAR TO BE HAVING SOME KIND OF FIT



Oh, Ignis is cooking again. That's... something, I guess, I what I

TEN FUCKING YEARS???


They don't even hang out anymore I can't believe this FUCKING GAME WHO TALKED ME INTO PLAYING THIS if I hadn't already guessed a Bad Ending this would have fucking cemented it



Ten years.

TEN YEARS AND THEY ARE ALL WEARING THE SAME DAMN OUTFITS


Like, Noct gets a pass because he was in some crystal void thing, but the rest of you? Really?


I can't believe the only way they can show the passage of time is by giving people beards.


I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M UPSET AGAIN BECAUSE OF THIS DAMN GAME.


Is this the entire chapter? Go to Hammerhead, pick up party members, go to final battle? I WAS PRETTY SURE THERE WERE FIFTEEN CHAPTERS?


Glad to hear Aranea, Biggs, and Wedge are still around.


Why do I have to get this info from Talcott? I want to talk to my idiots. I guess it's been ten years for them, though, that's ... a while.



I'm gonna spend the rest of my goddamned life screaming about how this game isn't fair, aren't I.


Crap, everything in here is harder than I'm used to.



Oh my god it's been a decade, stop monologuing.


Oh. It's the scene we saw waaaaaay back at... god, was that the very beginning? Yeah, this was the first freaking scene. This game has been one hell of a flashback.


Did Bahamut just summon himself? Because I wasn't holding L2 at all.

Also he missed, lol. IFRIT EVASION. Wouldn't Shiva have been better?

SPEAK OF THE DEVIL.


oh noooo here we goooo


he just needs one photo to take with him oh noooooooooo pause for cry break.

gdi the commentary is killing me, I can't do this. How does anyone replay this game knowing what's going to happen?

This is gonna go in the pile of "games I love but will never, ever be able to touch again, and anything not finished will just sit in the box of regrets" along with Crisis Core, isn't it?


I'm going with the picture of them all with the car from the very beginning.


Yeah, no backsies.



This is hideous.


I've been out of luck since Chapter 9, man.


...Possibly since the first chapter, if you think of if as when I set myself up for heartbreak.


What did you DO TO THEM please, not now, can't someone survive this?



that's... one hell of a point-warp.



I'm not going unless you're gone, too, fuck OFF, just DIE.



Erase you from history? They already tried that. It clearly didn't stick.

As for what I'll do now beyond that? Die, I guess.



They're still alive, thank god.


Maybe not gonna stay that way with that army of giants. I want to believe, though.


He really looks like his dad with the beard.


Fuck. T_T Poor Regis.



Ardyn, please just go.


Luna. ;o;


Noct. ;_;




Okay I haven't been watching diligently because I am very sad right now but they were definitely rolling the pics in order and now they're skipping.



fuck this campfire i hate it


SAME, NOCT, ME, TOO, LET'S CRY TOGETHER AGAIN


they are the best though I can't ;_____;




More credits, huh.


Fuck yoooooouuuuuuu, Square, you did this to me. Stop killing your god damned protagonists, I hate you.



At least it seems to have worked, if these scenery shots are telling me anything. Fuck. Fucking FUCK.



ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS

YOU ARE


THAT STUPID FUCKING PICTURE

WHY ARE WE TITANIC-ING THIS SHIT

THAT'S NOT HAPPY


LIKE GOOD FOR YOU BEING TOGETHER IN THE AFTERLIFE BUT I'M STILL HEARTBROKEN OVER HERE



THAT WAS A TERRIBLE ENDING AND I'M NEVER GOING TO STOP CRYING.




Where do you even go from here. Fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCKING FUCKING FUCK I knew it was going to hurt but I didn't I don't know what I thought, it somehow wasn't this. Someone fix it. MAYBE NEXT TIME WHEN WE BANISH THE DARKNESS WE CAN ACCIDENTALLY SOMEHOW REVIVE OURSELVES AND SOME OTHER DEAD FOLK AND HAVE A REAL WEDDING AND EVERYONE WILL BE THERE AND I CAN FINALLY STOP SOBBING



CHAPTER FIFTEEN IS A FUCKING LIE I'M GOING TO GO TO BED TO CRY MYSELF TO SLEEP NOW I HAVE A HEADACHE AND I'M

so sad oh my god, my poor boys, you deserved better




.... CARBUNCLE.

I BET CARBUNCLE COULD DO SOMETHING


WHO HAS WRITTEN "THE DAY IS SAVED BY CARBUNCLE" I'M SURE IT'S OUT THERE
