Nice.  Are you playing this on PS 4 Arvis?

Yes, I am. :)


35 hours in and where has the time gone? I haven't enjoyed a game this much this since XenobladeX.
Ha ha!  It's funny, that game keeps coming to mind when I play this, even though they're completely different.  I think it's the joy of exploring a richly detailed and handcrafted world.

It must be, exploring mira on my 60+ inch tv with my surround sound (laugh if you want but the music for areas like noct day were fantastic to me, i would crank up the volume just to listen to that tribal beat) was fantastic. The game had flaws for sure but the exploration was top notch imo (also freaking mechs, a dream of mine in video games since the original xenogears blew my mind with mech combat as a kid).

I have no clue what level I'm at but it's high!  And I feel you on VC4.  How am I going to play both?

The perfect picture of parochial paradise:



Anyone up for a picnic with me under that tree?



Do I spy a shady fishing spot?



Yes, I do!



You can almost feel the ocean breeze coming off this screencap.  I wonder if that place in the distance is important?



But wait, how did I get here?  Why does the ocean look different?  Hmmmm....

Arriving by nightfall in an exotic mountain village:



Sunrise:



Well... that is quite a view:



Wonder where this goes:



D'aww:

Man, I want to go camping now (in pristine, bugless conditions of course):



Although it seems like Erik is getting sick of it:



Maybe some shopping at a beautiful market will cheer him up:



Adventuring in paradise with my noble steed:



Where the heck did my paradise go?

Cool.  I'm playing it on PS 4 as well.  I've spent half my play time just exploring the world and haven't gone too far in the story.  I need to pick up the pace a bit.

Thanks to that recent Nintendo Direct showing off the Switch port of FFXII, I finally had my reason to pick this up for the PS4 over waiting for the Switch version.

Just got Erik and am now screwing around. As for Draconian Challenges, I've taken them all up except for the not wearing Armor one (because I'm not that much of a masochist).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Because A) I can turn them off later if I'm not liking how things are playing out, B) I like being Fashionaaaabluh in this gorgeous looking game, C) because this isn't my first DQ rodeo and I know I don't want to spend a million hours grinding levels just because I have to slum it without magic/breath/status protection during the end/postgame, and D) this was basically my DQIX playthrough in a nutshell (aside from the lack of a difficulty mode; which I tried to compensate for by not allocating Skill Points onto my MC, but even then DQIX was still really fucking pissweak).

I'm sadly not much for social media because there's some quality screen captures involving Shypox.

Anyone in the mood for some light reading and a nap?  I sure am now:



I'm gonna file this one under "Not A Well-Informed Decision":



Yet more glorious architecture and world design:



Definitely nothing important in this photo:



Really adorable cafe looks cozy:

I had asked earlier.  He's playing on a PS 4, although I don't know if it's a Pro or OG model.
