Personally I think it's about on par with FFV. Worse than 6, 7, 9, and 10. Even with V. Better than the rest

But it is hard to place for how different it is.

Time for my latest roundup.

Let's start with a video of Ardyn's voice actor, Darin De Paul, speaking at a con. This is freakin' hilarious. Maybe slightly spoilery if you don't know Ardyn's backstory, so use your own judgment there.

Turns out flying the Regalia into Imperial dropships isn't the best way of dealing with them

Dropship's going to need Cidney or AAA

It's like Prompto knows a glitch just occurred

Hilarious (and fortuitous) MA-X Angelus-0 glitch leads to a maxed-out hit counter

That Pitioss Theory is just..... that is amazing. Wow.

(SPOILER) I haven't even gone into that dungeon yet, which now I'm kind of glad for, as when I do I'll have this story in mind and see what I think about it.

The amount of theorizing and research that went into that theory is amazing. Whether true or not, it's a very awesome theory. I think it's this picture that most makes me think it's at least partly true. That and the whole 'Lucis crystal is part of Etro/Eos's heart' thing, with the lava cave.

I really enjoyed reading all that, I love good theories and I've always thought the Rock of Ravatogh was such a cool volcanic mountain and kept wondering what those crystallized tendrils were and why they were there. Totally cool.

Because I'm cleaning house I just skimmed over the Pitioss Theory (which I heard about a few days ago, but hadn't bothered to find until X conventiently linked it) but damn, it seems pretty frickin plausible. I have yet to visit Pitioss yet, but I think I need to go back on my first save and play through it before Episode Gladio comes out.

Thanks X for linking that, that was an awesome read.

I, too, have been reading about the Pitioss theory for several days and jotting down my thoughts until I could compile a thorough and appropriate response. I've almost finished doing so, but to give you a preview in summary: Parts of that theory are brilliant and almost certainly true; other parts considerably less so.

I also find the writing style in which it was posted annoying, if I'm being honest. =P

*cracks knuckles, clears throat

Well... god damn. I guess I'll be doing a narration of that tomorrow.


Edit:

tl;dr - Pitioss is a literal story that is both horrifying and tragic and the gods of FFXV are dicks (it is known).

Edit 2: Anybody else after reading this develop a retroactive phobia about this place?

I just started playing through Pitioss last night while Skype chatting, and hoooo boi.

(SPOILER)

First of all, the airship controls are fucking atrocious. And the fact that the landing strip to access Pitioss is small as fuck and is not shown on your mini map makes it hard to successfully navigate. I've crashed the Regalia twice, both while trying to land at Ravatogh. Tbh, the amount of circling I had to do in order to get a good descent so I could land properly was making me sick to the point where I had to put the controller down for a bit just to make my eyes stop hurting. I managed to land though on my first try when I picked it back up again.

And Pitioss itself...

The dungeon is absolutely beautiful. I've been taking photos of that statues and the architecture and the little blue dragonfly-esque creatures. Very solemn, creepy place.

That being said, fuck this fucking dungeon to whatever circle hell it spawned from.

I had to stop playing it last night just because it was getting too damn late and I didn't want to get in over my head. Not to mention I'm sure everyone listening in was getting tired of my rage screeching when I fell.

For the most part I can navigate it pretty well... but some parts are just a little more difficult to get around then others. I'll admit, I was watching a walkthrough while playing it last night because fuck this place.
