FFXV is out

My thoughts so far on the first very, extremely tiny amount of Final Fantasy XV that I have played already:

• Why does it have to come out now, when I just discovered KHUX and I need a Roxas medal immediately and I only have four days left for the best ever medal deal?!? sdlfjsdlgkj

Final Fantasy XV: Bachelor Roadtrip

• I feel like FF has finally broken and stolen all the best parts about the Tales games. A full-fledged cooking system, not the weak-ass version seen in Graces or the complete LACK in Xillia, but one where there are ingredients and cooking and battle effects and characters have favorite recipes! Costume changes with status effects! Skit chatter while running around! Rock on, Square-Enix

• Now with 5x more selfie action! tbh the fact that each character has a completely irrelevant skill to hone, like Prompto's photography and Noctis's fishing, makes me inexplicably happy. I WILL MAKE SUCH AN ALBUM OF YOUR PHOTOS, PROMPTO (/googles to make sure I'm not misremembering his name /no, it really is that stupid)

• So far the only female anywhere in sight has been Daisy Duke Cid's boobtastic granddaughter. It definitely seems like all my party members will be these four dudes, since the skill system entangles them all together. I accept this only because this is Final Fantasy XV: Bachelor Roadtrip, and all the other dudes are teasing Noctis about his future domestication.

• Cautious curiosity about the whole arranged marriage situation? Will this be neat? So far there's no doom and gloom about marrying a random stranger from these alleged royals who should be used to this idea. I like arranged marriage plots.

• Holy shit you guys the 16-bit characters scattered through the game just jumping around on the equipment screens SNES-style ahhhhh there is so much throwback love in this game already and it makes me so happy.

So to summarize, so far I am very optimistic and not at all disappointed except in the fact that I have only 2 hands and 24 hours in a day to do this and fucking KHUX
