When are good times to start the Gladio and Prompto Episode's? I'm finally getting back to XV after taking a break from it, and am getting all of the DLC episodes at least. I'll be sure to get Ignis' Episode too whenever that releases. Thanks!
I would play all of them after you beat the game. If you played Episode Prompto immediately after the respective point of time in the main story the DLC's post-credits scenes would totally spoil the later chapter of the main game. Maybe Ignis' DLC can be played after the beginning of the chapter following the events during which it plays in the main story. We'll have to wait and see.

EDIT: You know there are free story updates coming well into next year as announced recently, no? See: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1438473

Maybe you could wait just a bit longer and experience an (hopefully) improved game.

Is there any rumor about Comrades' lenght?
Considering it will be 10-15€ max, I don't think it will provide so much content, like I doubt it will be 40 hours long, maybe 10 hours or so?

Episode Gladio has a really, really obvious point where it's best started, as Gladio will pull you aside in the main game and say he wants to go off on his own for a bit to take care of something.

Episode Prompto is a little trickier and there's justification for starting it at a couple different points. Personally, I'd start it just as you start Chapter 13.

I would just play all the DLC once completing the game.

Well it's a multiplayer game. So it's meant to be replayable...

Finally took the time to check out the new cutscenes in chp 12.

They were really good, more content like this please, thanks.
I believe they said they have every intention to continue adding scenes and scenarios.

Thanks everyone. If anything, I consider the free updates next year just incentive to come back to the game and play it even more, I'm excited to see what the updates will be though. I think I'll wait until Ignis' episode releases and then buy all three at once and play them, I am curious about the Comrades DLC too.

they didn't show much in the comrades stream. It actually seemed that the "boss" didn't show up because of some sort of glitch or something, or perhaps miscommunication. Anyways, Lestallum looks really interesting. And the character avatars for the players were insanely accurate... i really wonder if they truly made those models organically using the character creator, or did they import those models in artificially?

It has been great talking to you guys, but I'm out. I'll be over at S L & E N T if anyone wants to join, it's a cool place, and people are actually less violent on Final Fantasy discussion, even though it's not quite as populated as Gaf was (I'll probably get banned for post this, but that's okay :)).

Peace out.

Some more concept art leaked from that Cook and Becker Artbook. That original concept for the fight in Insomnia looked way darker than what the movie ultimately had.
It also seems that Noct was very much meant to be in the city during the invasion even around the time of Episode Duscae since that final art piece was in the Demo and it appears to be from the same stage of the game's life:



Old art but it's from the same batch:

Is this really the most recent OT for FFXV? (If not, mods, I'll gladly post in whatever topic is.)

So I played this game a bid at launch -- got as far as Altissia -- and after watching the Kingsglaive movie my better half is pestering me to play this again so she can see wha tthe "real" story is about.

I bought the North American version (so that I could also buy DLC/add-ons if I wanted them) and am debating whether to restart or go back to where I was. There have been ~20 (!) patches since I last played: we were at, I think, 1.02 or 1.03 and when I put the disc in, the game started loading patch 1.23.

I'm trying to find a patch log so I can see what has changed, but can't find one. (Google brings up a ton of FF14 patch notes.)

(Editing my own post: this wiki describes the patches; wow. there are a lot of changes.)

Is it worth starting over from scratch? And is it worth downloading 1.23, or should I stay at 1.00, which would not require a multi-hour download and installation? Any big QoL improvements in the latest version?

This seems to be the most recent OT so don't be worried about that.

Anyway here's a list of the patch notes up to the most recent one, most notable additions are more story scenes, additional playable parts in Chapter 13, offroad mod for the Regalia and character switching in battle:
http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Final_Fantasy_XV_patches

Starting over really depends on yourself and how important these sorts of things are, and how far you got in the first place.

Going through that patch list now; I discovered it as you were posting! There is also this official list: https://finalfantasyxv.com/updates, which does not include patch numbers but does have exact dates.)

I'm leaning towards playing again, with the latest patch but on easy mode (at least until Chapter 8/9, where I left off). I've forgotten a ton of stuff! It's actually a little disturbing playing a patchable game because usually it's clear when they changed something but sometimes I think my memory is playing tricks on me (could you always accept more than one hunt quest at a time?).

And -- might as well ask while I'm here -- this Royal Edition is pretty confusing. So it contains all the DLC plus the free updated content? It's downloadable, because it's bigger than what would fit on a Blu-ray, but is it a one-time code or is it downloaded automatically, like the 1.xx patches? That is, is a used copy of the Royal Edition practically worthless?

I think that maybe for the Paris Games Week 2018 they could show the stand-alone version of Comrades.
But I'm much more curious to see a first look at Episode Ardyn :messenger_smiling_hearts:

Oh, cool, I thought this was still a ways off.

Is this the one they're presenting in English?

EDIT: Awesome. We're gonna see some Episode Ardyn.

Wait... They're cancelling everything except Ardyn?
And Tabata resigned a week ago!?

Square... Why are you stomping on my dreams?
Suddenly it feels like a goddamn miracle that we're getting Kingdom Hearts III.
