I think it’s kind of cool, actually. Depends on how you look at it, I guess.
-Iris, Final Fantasy XV
“The following is a contributor post by the ABXY Mage.”
If you didn’t already know, Naoki Yoshida (director of FFXIV) recently said that he hoped for less machinery in the next Final Fantasy entry. In this episode of Side Quests, The Kingly Yellow Mage and I talk about this idea, as well as what we would like out of FFXVI.
In order to do that, we also talk about what we liked and disliked about Final Fantasy XV as well as the difference between the series’ time in turn-based and active combat systems. Intertwined with all of this, we also touch on Kingdom Hearts 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, and the difficulty (and lack thereof) in video games.
The ABXY Mage leads a double life of unfathomable hipness, if his expertise in jazz is any indication. Music maker, fandangoist, writer, you can find this hip cat as ABXY Reviews on Twitter and on YouTube.
