@snakelinksonic: I think I understand. I am on the same data center but a different server. Am I still able to join the FC through a contact if I can't go to the housing district and apply?

Your only real options are to either server transfer or create an alt character if you want to play directly with us. Like @snakelinksonic said there is cross server play for doing duties and joining pre-formed parties but if you wanted to directly chat with people in the free company chat channel as well as hang out around the house the only way to do that is to be physically on the Ultros server with us.

That being said if you play FFXIV and just want some like minded people to bounce ideas off of outside of the game either me or Snakelinksonic can hook you up with a discord link if you would like to join that.

Dreeeeeeeeeeeeeeew. :(

I loved seeing Drew slowly become better and better in front of the camera over the years. He's been a great voice and personality on the site and I'll be sad to see him go. :(

People are obsessed about it because it matters. Its honestly a shame that consoles can't consistently do 60fps 1080p yet. Frame rate has way more to do with a game than how it looks. Frame rate affects input lag which is a massive deal for a lot of game genres.

I will take stable 60 frames over graphics every single time.

Hearing that its real short sort of makes me feel justified in my decision to wait for a price drop. I'm glad its good though.

I mean technically you can play the PS4 on the go as long as you have access to a wi-fi connection and a Vita. Remote play is fantastic.

Does Vinny know about this yet?

@liquiddragon: Watch Brotherhood if you feel like you'd remotely care about the back stories of Noctis crew. There are 5 episodes total and 3 of the 5 are vignettes that show Noctis at various younger stages in his life and how he became friends with Prompto, Gladio and Ignis.

Kingsglaive however is pretty much mandatory. The movie itself as a movie is middling at best but the reason it is so important is because it directly sets up a LOT of character motivations from important characters in the story. And there are also a few scenes where the game directly picks up after Kingsglaive and if you don't have the context of what they were doing before there are a few early scenes that would feel like almost non-sequiturs because the game assumes so much that you have watched the movie.

@oursin_360: That's been tried before. Like the "compatibility packs" in some games. And thats entirely the thing if you don't own the DLC nobody is going to WANT to download those packs if they aren't mandatory. By forcing the content in the title update it makes sure everyone is on the same page. Some people may not like that but its better for the communities of games in the long run. And there is always the option of playing a game offline if you do not want to update it.

I mean this is going to be even more normalized the further we go on. Game sizes are going to get larger not smaller.

@oursin_360 That wouldn't work. The content needs to be synced between all users for Multiplayer and Snap Map purposes. When you split DLC off as optional downloads then player bases become fragmented and it can and has destroyed games before.
