Conan O'Brien Rips Apart Final Fantasy XV: 'Why is This a Game?'
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Late night talk show host Conan O'Brien has previously reviewed video games like Super Mash Bros. for Wii U on his segment "Clueless Gamer." O'Brien, who claims to know next to nothing about video games, tests out the latest offerings while providing comedic commentary. In his latest review, he plays Final Fantasy XV alongside actor Elijah Wood and grows increasingly frustrated with the game's premise, lack of payoff, and ongoing time investment. When he find himself pushing a car through the desert after it breaks down, O'Brien quips "Why is this a game?"
At the end of the video he chastises the game's staff before finally offering a "good job."
The game is slated for release on November 29 after a delay. The game will have a Deluxe Edition, which will come with a steelbook case, a copy of the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV film, and three DLC items, including: a Royal Raiment outfit, a Masamune weapon, and a Platinum Leviathan recoloring of the Regalia vehicle. The Deluxe Edition is available for pre-order for US$89.99.
The Collector's Edition will include all the items in the Deluxe Edition, but also adds a 192-page art book, an Play Arts Kai figure of Noctis, a soundtrack that includes music from the game as well as the Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV anime and the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV film, a copy of the Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV anime, and four additional items, including: a Travel Pack, Camera Kit, Angler Set, and Gourmand Set. The Collector's Edition retails for US$269.99.
Square Enix is also offering a Digital Premium Edition of the game that includes the downloadable version of the game and the Season Pass for six upcoming DLC. The Digital Premium Edition retails for US$84.99.
