Final Fantasy 15 Slickster Playthrough on Dec. 8 @ 9 p.m. EST
Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourself for an epic journey! This Thursday, on December 8 at 9:00 p.m. EST, we will be going live on Twitch with our first episode of Final Fantasy 15! With the game being so huge, this will be an multi-episode series. Follow along as we take on an evil, militaristic empire, summon god-like beings, and wallop the crap out of monsters with a wide assortment of weapons.
As we had previously mentioned, this game presents us with a much more active combat system. After trying the tutorial–I think you will all be pleasantly surprised. It’s a departure from the familiar turn-based combat, but it is a good kind of departure. Final Fantasy 13 was a little rough on the edges, but it was clearly a move by Square Enix to move on to something quicker in pace, but fluid in execution. And I think we’re going to be finding that in Final Fantasy 15.
There have been conflicting sentiments about the story’s pacing, but I’m going in with an open mind, and I look forward to seeing what unfolds. I have seen the related prequel-ish Final Fantasy Kingsglaive movie, and that serving of background info on the game world should help in case there are any confusing bits. Apparently, it’s easier to understand certain story elements when you watch it. I’ll be sure to explain whatever I know as we go along.
So check us out on our Slickster Magazine Twitch channel on Thursday, December 8, at 9:00 p.m. EST for Episode One of our Final Fantasy 15 Slickster Playthrough! And if you missed our Titanfall 2 Playthrough from last time, be sure to check it out on our YouTube channel.
I’m super excited to get started on this game. And I hope you all are too! I’ll see you all on Twitch this Thursday night at 9pm EST.
