Did you sign an NDA to get a hold of that copy? If not then it doesn't matter, but chances are any video you post will be taken down by ninjas.

Seeing positive preview after positive preview is a wonderful sight to behold. Glad so many people checking it out are enjoying it so much. I know for some no amount of positive previews will convince them of anything. And that is unfortunate. I hope they go into the game more open-minded.
At this point my only concern is the story. Keeping it engaging all the way through will be a big challenge.

You are legally allowed to do whatever the fuck you want. If you signed an NDA, you might get sued or lose privileges, but there's no law stopping you.

The problem tends to be more that the major streaming sites don't give a shit about you, and will kill your stream and/or account if SE wants them to.

If you stream somewhere obscure and/or don't hand the link out publically, you'll likely go unnoticed.

Well, Heart of Gold isn't in the game as that was a placeholder, but do we know what was used in its place?

Wait, they completely snubbed Crisis Core...

"Under the Apple Tree" would have fit perfectly in XV as well.
Under the Apple Tree would have fit in FFXV better than Crisis Core. Just look at the opening region man...

I was planning on premaking a bunch of videos and setting them to private till I can find out when everythings in the clear.

But I'm not even sure if that is safe. If anyone has some solid info on the topic, help me out thanks.
If you didn't sign an NDA, you're no beholden to anything. Your videos are subject to getting taken down if a FFXV rep catches it, but that's all. There's not really any penalty in it for you, specifically. Other than the special Hell for people who spoil things and talk at the movies.

Depends entirely on the publisher if they care about footage being posted by someone who managed to get the game early. If they do care then the only thing that will happen is youtube will take the video down and nothing else. It's not like you'll get hit with a ban or something.

Make a bunch of gifs and good luck S-E ninjas.

Also upload delisted videos and PM the link for people who ask, instead of openly posting it.

Would I be able to reupload?

Seeing as I won't face consequences if they did take it down it'd be nice if they let me know when its okay to put it back up hmm.



Yeah this would probably be easier too
Any chance of some impressions at least?

They won't let you know anything. Your video will be removed and absolutely everyone involved in removing it will forget about your very existence almost instantly.

In this video at 11:50 you can see pretty much everything the ascension grid has to offer if anyone is interested. (I think he skipped 1 or 2)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfmoQ4s6_Hc

Also it looks like the song packs of the radio are items which makes radio DLC very likely considering that most DLC stuff are items too.

Oh and look how you can see the monster burning during a "cutscene". No 100% scripted stuff that makes every cutscene the same. However I can already see the hilarious videos/pictures that result by random things getting into the cutscene.

How the score is calculated:
Methodology

Nielsen Game Rank™ represents the overall anticipation level among gamers on each platform, based on a combination of several key measures (including awareness, purchase interest, consumer rating and others). The percent value shown reflects how strong the overall anticipation level is for the title, relative to the pre-release anticipation levels of all previous titles that released on the platform(s). Values shown for multi-platform titles are averages of the values from each release platform. Titles included are those being released between Oct. 1, 2016 - Dec. 31, 2016, that have a Game Rank™ of 75% or higher. Data was collected by surveying 6,000 gamers age 7 to 54 between Aug. 21, 2016 - Sept. 24, 2016.​

Do we have any idea about when reviews are going to show up for this game? Is it going to be earlier than release date youthink, or will there be an embargo until the official release? Would be nice to have reviews earlier and it will nean that the team is pretty confident about their work.

I mean they a look a bit overdesigned and don't really fit with the animation, (Noctis's walk cycle looks really jittery without the silhouette that he has from the coat). And Prompto's arms are super skinny that he looks even more thin. Gladio and Ignis don't look that terrible based on that Gif.
I've just gotta bring this up after seeing that NYCC footage. I think I'll be using that jacket-less casual/plainclothes over his default outfit if there aren't any better ones. A good fitting white tee and jeans just works for me (which you could lose the hat though), albeit a little boring. I don't think the other outfits clash with their animations much at all compared to what their defaults are. The suit maybe does when using a front facing camera as someone posted a gif before. But besides hat and puffy jackets/pants on Noctis and Prompto, I think the most of defaults and alts. look pretty good/decent.

And about the NYCC footage, nice to hear someone who says they were iffy being sold on the game from playing the latest version of the game.

This is strange, wasn't China one of the reasons why Tabata said they had to tone down the death/reaper theme because of the age ratings in certain countries w.r.t themes like that?

Tabata: "By the way, in Versus 13 Lucis was set as a country of Reaper worship. This setting is a violation of the age rating criteria for games in some countries, so we cannot push these theme. To replace these theme, we have a backbone setting of “black as a special colour.” And I hope you will wait for more information to come on this.”​

They haven't said it themselves, but I remember others talking about China on GAF, IIRC, but maybe I'm wrong. So does anybody know which countries could fall under that criteria then?

That NYCC video was excellent. Loved the amount of different stuff we got just from them going a slightly different direction than most people.

It seems like the camp mini-quests are related to each camp, and aren't just random. That should be obvious with the beach race already, but I'm slow.

That's already a great incentive to exploration, imo. I'll definitely use all of them, and I'm sure I'll come across some fun stuff while doing so.

Another thing I payed attention to during this video that I didn't catch in others, is that when Cidney gives you your quest, the camera pans out and shows that different rock, and you keep going on that direction until the end of the quest, so you can sort of guide yourself through that quest without relying on markers.

And R3 instantly brings up the map, thank you, Taba-chan. RIP minimap for me.

There is something about the Cactuar that totally gets me excited every time I see one. When they're at their best, they show up at surprising times and are hard to catch (just like in that vid) but also very rewarding when you can get it. Hopefully they match that part in the game as well.

I've been told once that the whole skeletons aren't ok in china thing is a myth, and googling around a bit seems to collaborate that, but I really don't know. When devs self censor their games like that over country specific ratings I've been under the impression it's usually for the Chinese market.

Still, it's weird to me how they're actually using that skull again all of a sudden. Wonder if it's just to sell merch or if it's actually in the game

See this thread for all ascension skills.

Are there any gambits? Or is the ai handling more rudimentary?
Gambits are internal and not exposed to the player. So, AI is pretty much automatic, but the player has control over some techniques.
