Even though the clock was ticking, it was difficult not to stop and smell the roses. I had a behemoth to hunt, but couldn't help myself. A gorgeous landscape teeming with majestic wildlife distracted me from my objective. I whiled away far too much time transfixed by the mosaic of stars painted across the night sky, exploring grottos and forest trails, and poking around a secluded outpost with a stable of Chocobos. I continued to do so until a tap on the shoulder reminded me to get back to the task at hand.
During a meeting with Square Enix today in Boston, the publisher gave me over an hour to delve into Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae, but it just wasn't enough time. I want to spend more time in this world, leaving no stone unturned, and now I find myself eagerly awaiting the opportunity to do just that when the demo launches alongside Final Fantasy Type-0 HD later this month.
