When fast travel first came out people wondered if that would hurt the "journey" of Oblivion. Instead everyone went "Oh... no, this is f$%%ing awesome." And hence forth, in most open world games you can go where you want, when you want. Not so in Final XV. You can pop back to your car and the last place you slept. That might sound reasonable, but more often than not I'm stuck out in the wilderness running back to a road for as much as 15 minutes. Not only that, but I have spent what seems like hours driving that car doing nothing while my in game J-pop boy band does nothing. It's like an Escher painting of a complete waste of my time.
So I endeavored to make it more productive. Here's what I've been doing while I'm trapped in a imaginary car:
-Diced chicken sausages
-Sauteed spinach and mushrooms
-Ate tortellini with chicken sausage and spinach and mushrooms
-Caught up on unassigned sales emails. I lease apartments, you see.
-Resolved a complaint with Wells Fargo's fraud department. They seem real friendly these days....
-Planks. One minute planks.
-Transcendental mediation. But to be fair I don't think I got very far.
-Asked Prompto to sit the hell down before he flies out of the f%$King car.
-Dusted a then recently discovered cobweb.
-Microwaved frozen fried rice
-Tried to open the equipment menu, realized the game only lets you use a shop* while you drive, and then screamed some less than courteous things about the baby Jesus.
* I'm pretty sure this is the game designer equivalent of a middle finger.
