    I… Can’t really pretend to give a damn.

    But on the chocobo races there, you’re actually racing with a black chocobo, maybe finally they’ll let us ride one in-game!

    You know the black chocobo that’s already in the game fully textured and animated and shows up for a couple of quests but for some reason you can’t ride it? Yeah that be great, especially now that they added a version of the car that makes chocobo’s almost obsolete! Oh wait…

    because assassin’s creed needs something to spice up the monotony.

    Games as a service shit.

    Starting to think I should just give up on a “complete edition”.

    Just when you don’t think they couldn’t get more cancerous. Are there any more abused franchises than these two? Capcom doesn’t count; they can’t make money off of shit.

    Because Square wants to be AAA and Ubi wants people to buy their shit again.

    This looks so stupid, but hilarious. It’s free so there’s no reason to complain.

    It’s sad that this non-canon DLC which takes place inside a dream or something, looks to be far more interesting and engaging both narratively and gameplay-wise, than any of the sidequests in all of FFXV.

    Everything “planned” as far as they’ve said. There is already DLC not covered by Season Pass, and some of these events are limited time only. The Mystery Egg that is now revealed to unlock the Altair costume for example, you only get that by doing a bunch of carnival games in the *other* DLC, which ends in September I believe.

    Especially since the King was also HIS FATHER. Pretty fucking insensitive, Prompto.

    Isn’t that the same carnival from earlier in the year? They’ll probably bring it back again, though probably they probably won’t for the Kang’s Creed crossover.

    Square does know that FFXV isn’t an MMORPG right? Why are their timed events in a single player game?
