Starting a new JRPG — a Japanese role-playing game — is always a harrowing experience. Once you get about 10 hours in, you start getting the nagging suspicion that things aren’t going quite as easily for you as they could be, and once you start poking around on the internet for tips, those suspicions are confirmed: You’ve been doing things sub-optimally, wasting precious man-hours. 

Final Fantasy 15, Square Enix’s bromantic new glamping-road-trip-with-crystals simulator, is a perfect example.  so you really don’t have time to dilly-dally if you’re looking to make the most of Noctis Lucis Caelum and his friends-slash-bodyguards’ quest to restore their kingdom. 

We’ve compiled a great list of tips, tricks and, yes, even glitches to help you get the most out of your experience while exploring the world of Eos.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to get an infinite sprint and a visible stamina bar

In Final Fantasy 15, your main character, Noct, can sprint to objectives while traversing the world map, but his ability to do so is usually limited by a stamina bar (the display is turned off by default in the game’s settings). which toggles the display for Noct’s stamina gauge.

Turning the visible stamina gauge on in the settings will let you take advantage of a hidden mechanic to let Noct sprint infinitely, although with how bad his running form is maybe he shouldn’t be doing that.

Additionally, Mashable discovered that if you enable the stamina bar’s display in the options, 

The timing will be a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but once you’ve got it down, Noct and company will be running all over Eos like champion athletes, albeit ones wearing designer boots. You can also keep the stamina bar disabled and eyeball the proper timing through Noct’s body language if you don’t want your view of Eos sullied by a green bar.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to get powerful accessories early by playing the “Justice Monsters Five” minigame

Very early in Final Fantasy 15, you can find the Crow’s Nest Diner to the southwest of Hammerhead, the garage where you get the car repaired at your quest’s outset. Inside the diner, you’ll find a pinball game called “Justice Monsters Five,” and although it seems like a waste of time (and gil, the series’ currency), you can use it to get some very powerful accessories very early on if you know what you’re doing.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to the get Noct’s Ultima Blade weapon in Chapter 3

If you’re familiar with Final Fantasy games, even the mention of “Ultima Weapon” should dredge up memories of hard-to-obtain endgame weapons with an amount of ostentatiousness exceeded only by their power. They usually serve as a character’s final weapon upgrade in previous Final Fantasy games. Miraculously, getting the Ultima Blade in Final Fantasy 15 is nowhere near as hard as it’s been in previous games, and can be completed as early as Chapter 3 (if you know what you’re doing).

Early on in the game, Cid Sophiar, the proprietor of Hammerhead and Cindy’s grandfather, will offer to upgrade any of your weapons if they have One of the weapons that can benefit from this is the Drain Lance you find after fighting some Magitek soldiers on the outskirts of Insomnia at the end of Chapter 1, but another is Noct’s Engine Blade.

The first item you need to get in order to upgrade the Engine Blade is a Rusted Bit. You can find these all over the world map and in dungeons, but according to Prima Games.

The second item is a Glass Gemstone, which you can get once you start Chapter 3. I

The final rare item you’ll need to turn your Engine Blade into the Ultima Blade is a Sturdy Helixhorn, which will probably require at least a little grinding in order to grab in Chapter 3. Two of the monsters you’ll fight in this hunt, Duplicorns, If you attempt this,

It’s probably best if you save before doing the hunt so you can quickly reload if the Helixhorn doesn’t drop, but the reward is well worth it: You’ll be the proud owner of the Ultima Blade, which can carry you all the way to the end of the game.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to get 600,000-plus experience points in Chapter 3

There is no ignoring it: being under-leveled in a video game is awful. Even worse, it can make relatively simple sections feel like torturous slogs until you go back and grind for experience, which is itself usually a torturous slog. With a little bit of preparation in Final Fantasy 15, you can grind smarter, not harder, and get about 600,000 experience in one go. That should be enough to help you avoid grinding for most (if not all) of the game.

Final Fantasy 15 tips: How to avoid unwanted nighttime battles if you’re driving in the Regalia

Nights in Eos are long and full of daemons, so it’s prudent to spend your nights in a hotel playing King’s Knight on your phone or camping in a protected area. However, if you’re dead-set on driving through the night, there is a way to avoid fighting daemons if you’re in the Regalia. According to IGN,

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to make 500,000 gil per hour by playing “Justice Monsters Five”

Unlike in previous Final Fantasy games, you don’t get gil from random battles in Final Fantasy 15. This can make it tricky to take full advantage of the game’s many diners and hotels, which give you buffs and increase your experience gains. You’ll probably be strapped for cash for most of the game (so it goes when you’re a prince whose nation was secretly conquered when he tried to get to his wedding incognito), but eventually the game will provide you with the ability to make more gil than you’ll know what to do with.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to get Aranea Highwind in your party permanently

Once you’ve beaten the mysterious dragoon Aranea Highwind in Chapter 7, there’s a chance she’ll show up on the world map and help you out in battles. Normally, she’ll always depart after the battle is done with a pithy quip, but if you feel there’s a little too much testosterone in Noct’s retinue, you can use a glitch to get Aranea in your party permanently. Just remember to back up your saves before you do this, because this is definitely not intended by the developers.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to get infinite health and mana regen utilizing Point-Warping and follow-up strikes

During combat, Noctis can take advantage of Point-Warping in order to get himself out of trouble, and certain warp points will let him hang above the battle, regenerating HP and MP at an accelerated rate. As USGamer discovered, The increased regeneration will make combat much easier and will allow you to abuse the Royal Arms,  Of course it’s pretty simple to recreate, but it’s an exploit, so don’t expect to rely on it long-term since it might get patched out.

Final Fantasy 15 tips and tricks: How to max out and level up your party skills quickly

Each member of Noct’s retinue has a special skill: Prompto has photography, Ignis has cooking, Gladiolus has survival and Noctis has fishing. All of these skills gain levels as you progress through the game (with fishing and cooking requiring a little more management than the other two), but if you’re looking to level them up quickly, there are certainly ways to grind that out.

Gladiolus’s survival skill is probably the easiest to level up in the background since it gets experience for every few steps the party takes. As long as you’re not overly dependent on the Regalia or fast travel, it should level up at a fairly brisk pace. You can without relying on the Regalia or fast travel.

TJust fish as often as you can there and you should get the Ace Angler rank in no time.

Aside from finding certain photo opportunities for Prompto, he seems to take photographs completely at random. which add to the tech bar when he hits and is hit, respectively, you can farm photos in combat and (in time) make Prompto less crap at shooting film.

‘Sonny’: Top 10 Tips & Cheats You Need to Know

Here are the top 10 tips/tricks/cheats you need to know for Sonny.


1. Focus on Focus

Sonny Game

• The blue bar beneath each character represents their Focus. When that fills up, they can act. Keep your enemy’s focus down by using effects that slow or stun them. This forces them to act less frequently. Use gear and effects to boost your party’s speed to regain focus faster so you can act more frequently.


2. Heal Wisely

Sonny Game

• Sonny and other characters have skills that can heal themselves and dispel negative status effects. Use them wisely. Learn when your party members are likely to heal you so you don’t have to spend a turn healing Sonny. And remember, Sonny’s Regenerate skill will dispel one random effect if he’s affected by multiple, so be strategic about how long you live with a negative effect.


3. Unlock A Variety of Skills

Sonny Game

• Leveling up earns Sonny a skill point and unlocking a new ability is usually better than upgrading one you already have, especially early on. Many upgrades only slightly improve that skill, while adding a new one will give you a wider variety of tools to work with. There is no “magic skill set” that’s perfect for every enemy. Experiment if you get stuck.


4. Swap Party Members

Sonny Game

• Every hero has their own unique skills and benefits. Veradux can hit heavy and heal, for instance, while Dr. Herregods has some invaluable support abilities that can defend or otherwise buffer your party. If you’re struggling against an enemy, consider swapping one of your party members out for someone who might be better suited to that situation.


5. Fight Smarter, Not Harder

Sonny Game

• While bigger stat numbers are always good, Sonny is meant to be played strategically. Mindlessly bashing away at an opponent will rarely get you where you want. Pay attention to the way enemies attack, their special abilities and how to counter them.



Diesel emissions inquiries widen to Renault and Fiat | Reuters

PARIS/MILAN European carmakers were drawn into a widening probe of diesel emissions testing on Friday, with French prosecutors examining Renault and British authorities seeking answers from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV.

Volkswagen’s VOW_p.DE admission that some of its diesel vehicles were fitted with software designed to hide their true level of emissions has highlighted that most cars spew out far higher levels of health-threatening nitrogen oxide (NOx) in everyday driving conditions than in laboratory tests.

Shares in Renault fell more than 4 percent to their lowest level in around a month after a source at the Paris prosecutor’s office said it had launched a judicial investigation into possible cheating on exhaust emissions at the French carmaker.

Renault said it respected all laws concerning exhaust emissions, adding that its vehicles did not have software enabling them to cheat on emissions standards.

The French clampdown follows allegations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Thursday that Fiat Chrysler, like Volkswagen, was potentially using illegal software to hide excess diesel emissions.

No manufacturer other than VW has been found to have installed software designed solely for the purpose of circumventing emissions tests, but regulators in Britain and Germany say that carmakers have made extensive use of a “thermal window” which allows manufacturers to turn down pollution-control systems for the sake of protecting an engine.

German investigators said they had found that some carmakers defined the “thermal window” in such a way that exhaust treatment systems were switched off most of the time.

Switching off or throttling back emissions treatment systems in cold weather reduces the risk of condensation building up in catalytic converters, which may otherwise cause rust and reduce exhaust-filtering effectiveness in the long run.

It also improves engine performance and stretches the intervals between refilling vehicles with urea, an expensive substance needed to extract NOx from exhaust fumes.

Regulators across the globe are now seeking to determine when a “thermal window” engine management system becomes an illegal “defeat device.”

Under U.S. law, there is an obligation for manufacturers to declare their emission control strategy. This has been the basis for EPA action against Volkswagen and now against Fiat Chrysler.

NEW TESTING REGIME

The European Commission said it had been informed about the “worrying” EPA allegations and would look at what implications they might have for the European Union.

“We will now work with the EPA, national member state authorities and of course Fiat in order to establish potential implications for vehicles sold in the EU,” it said.

The European Commission has limited powers to force polluting cars off European roads, since vehicle licensing in the EU is still conducted on a national level.

But European regulators have introduced a more stringent testing regime designed to reflect everyday driving conditions in the wake of the VW scandal that will take effect this year.

Under the revised Real Driving Emissions (RDE) cycle, the disparity between road and laboratory test results will be narrowed.

SEEKING INFORMATION

Britain on Friday said it was urgently seeking information from the EPA over its allegation that Fiat Chrysler used hidden software to allow excess diesel emissions to go undetected.

“We are urgently seeking further information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency… and will also be seeking information from the manufacturer regarding vehicles in the UK market,” a spokesman at the Department for Transport said.

Fiat Chrysler Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne angrily rejected the allegations on Thursday, saying there was no wrongdoing and Fiat never attempted to cheat emissions rules with software detecting a vehicle was in test mode.

Fiat’s volatile shares surged 7 percent in Europe, after falling sharply in U.S. trading on Thursday, and were trading 5 percent higher at 1453 GMT.

The automaker’s stock has risen by around 70 percent this year since Donald Trump’s election, on expectations of less stringent emissions policies under the next U.S. administration.

But carmakers continue to face scrutiny in Europe. Earlier this week the European Commission called on Italy to cooperate with a German probe investigating allegations that the Fiat 500X, Fiat Doblo and Jeep Renegade models were equipped with illegal cheating software. Fiat rejects the allegations.

Germany’s motor vehicle authority KBA began testing the vehicles of several foreign manufacturers as part of a blanket probe of vehicle emissions after the Volkswagen scandal first came to light.

And the country’s transport ministry asked the European Commission to investigate Fiat’s emissions after being stonewalled by Italian authorities.

These are the apps love cheats are using to hide their affairs

A new study has suggested that approximately 60 per cent of men and 40 per cent of women will cheat at least once in their marriage.

January 9 is the most common day of the year for people to cheat, apparently.

The revelations come from Gleeden, an online dating site for extramarital encounters, which conducted a study into when people are unfaithful.

According to data collected in recent years on the site, which has more than 3.3 million members, the second Monday after the Christmas holidays appears to be a key date for unfaithful partners.

The widespread nature of infidelity these days, according to experts, is at least in part down to the universal spread of technology.

Cheaters are now using an array of apps to hide their unfaithful ways, apparently.

And here are just five of the most popular:

Private Photo

The Private Photo app icon looks like a calculator, but after you enter the right password, it reveals itself to be a store of secret images which never appear in your phone’s main photo library.

“Millions of people trust Private Photo to keep their photos hidden,” the app says.

One review on the Apple Store reads: “Brilliant! Real security for those pics you’d rather weren’t found by prying eyes.”

Nosy Trap

The “Nosy Trap” app will capture the nosy people in your life by snapping a picture of them as they try to look inside your iPhone or iPad.

The service uses a simple, easy to understand setup process.

Once the application is installed, when you leave your iPhone unattended, you simply activate the system. Activation will display a false desktop of iPhone application icons.

Any attempt at clicking anywhere on this display will start a video using the front facing camera on your iPhone.

All pictures are stored in your photo gallery.

Fox Private Message

This stealth app lets you erase conversations and more by simply shaking the phone.

And that’s not all.

Indeed, you’ll find an option to shoot a text message pass code to the phone, which in turn deletes all evidence.

You have been warned.

TigerText

The real-time messaging app lets you send text messages with an attached deletion time.

So, this erases the evidence from the recipient’s inbox.

TigerText also allows you to retract a sent message before (and after) it has been received by the other caller.

A man using his iPhone

Slydial

Rather than risk getting caught on the phone with another woman, Slydial sends you straight to someone’s voicemail, where you can leave a message.

After recording a slydial, choose up to 10 contacts from your address book to receive your message.

After your campaign has completed, you can view your results by visiting the Reporting section of the app.

But don’t worry if your other half has the Birmingham Mail app. You can, too. Find out how to download it below.

Clemson cheat sheet: Breaking down Alabama’s national title game opponent

Back in March, Dabo Swinney told Nick Saban: We’re going to see each other in the national championship game again.

That proved accurate.

It’s Alabama and Clemson in the national championship game for a second straight year, a rematch that will take place one year after the Tide’s dramatic 45-40 win over the Tigers in last year’s championship game.

BASIC CLEMSON FACTS

Record: 13-1

Previous games: 9/3: Won, 19-13, at Auburn

9/10: Beat Troy, 30-24

9/17: Beat South Carolina St., 59-0

9/22: Won, 26-7, at Georgia Tech

10/1: Beat then-No. 3 Louisville, 42-36

10/7: Won, 56-10, at Boston College

10/15: Beat N.C. State, 24-17, in overtime

10/29: Won, 37-34, at then-No. 12 Florida State

11/5: Beat Syracuse, 54-0

11/12: Lost to Pittsburgh, 43-42

11/19: Won, 35-13, at Wake Forest

11/26: Beat South Carolina, 56-7

12/3: Beat then-No. 23 Virginia Tech, 42-35 (ACC championship game)

12/31: Beat No. 3 Ohio State, 31-0 (College Football Playoff semifinals)

Head coach: Dabo Swinney

Top players (listed alphabetically): Senior linebacker Ben Boulware: Boulware has a team-high 121 tackles, including 9.5 stops for a loss and four sacks, after making 138 tackles last year as a junior.

Redshirt junior offensive guard Tyrone Crowder: CBS Sports ranks the 6-foot-2, 340-pound Crowder as the second-best 2017 NFL draft prospect among offensive guards and projects he will be picked during the second round of this year’s draft.

Senior cornerback Cordrea Tankersley: Tankersley has nine interceptions the last two years, including four this season. CBS projects he’ll be a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft.

Redshirt senior defensive lineman Carlos Watkins: A two-time first-team All-ACC selection, Watkins has 73 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

Junior quarterback Deshaun Watson: Arguably the top player in the country, Watson has thrown for 4,173 yards and 38 touchdowns while also running for 583 yards and eight scores.

Redshirt junior wide receiver Mike Williams: Williams, who missed most of last year due to a neck fracture, has 90 catches for 1,267 yards and 10 touchdowns. CBS ranks him as the top NFL prospect among draft-eligible wide receivers.

Number to know: 17

Alabama and Clemson have a combined 17 players projected by CBS Sports to go in the first three or four rounds of this year’s NFL draft — nine for Bama and eight for Clemson.

BREAKING DOWN CLEMSON

Offense

Led by Watson and Williams, Clemson is seventh nationally in passing offense, 12th in total offense and 13th in scoring offense.

The Tigers also have a talented running back. Wayne Gallman has run for 1,087 yards and 16 touchdowns after running for 1,527 yards and 13 scores last year.

Only three of Clemson’s opponents have held the Tigers to less than 30 points. Clemson has scored an average of 44 points in its last seven games.

One of the only notable issues for the Tigers offensively has been interceptions. Watson has thrown 17 after only having 13 last year, including two during Clemson’s playoff semifinal win over Ohio State and three during the Tigers’ loss to Pittsburgh.

Defense

Clemson’s defense has been inconsistent despite ranking eighth nationally in total defense.

There have been some great performances, like shutting out Ohio State last week while holding the Buckeyes to 215 yards of total offense. There have also been some bad defensive performances, like giving up 43 points and 464 yards of total offense during the loss to Pittsburgh. Pitt quarterback Nathan Peterman threw for 308 yards and five touchdowns while running back James Conner ran for 132 yards and an average of 6.6 yards per carry.

Run defense was also a problem against Florida State. FSU’s Dalvin Cook ran for 169 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 8.9 yards per carry.

Earlier in the season, Clemson allowed 568 yards of total offense during its win over Heisman winner Lamar Jackson and Louisville. Jackson threw for 295 yards and also ran for 162 yards.

The Tigers have held nine opponents to 13 points or less. However, four of the other five opponents have scored 34 points or more.

Overall, though, the numbers are good for the most part. Clemson is fifth nationally in sacks, 17th in pass defense and 19th in run defense.

Singer Bobby Brown Cheats Death? New Edition Alum’s Intestines Reportedly ‘Explode’ Due To Excessive Drug Use

If certain reports are to be believed, then the long list of 2016 celebrity casualties nearly claimed another victim: the once-proclaimed “King of R&B,” Bobby Brown.

The 47-year-old former New Edition front man, whose solo hits “My Prerogative” and “Every Little Step” quickly allowed him to shed his boy band beginnings, has knowingly had some hardships throughout his once-manic life.

On July 26, 2015, as noted by the Inquisitr, Bobbi Kristina Brown, Bobby’s first and only child with late music superstar Whitney Houston, was removed from life support after succumbing to injuries that she allegedly incurred at the hands of her boyfriend, Nick Gordon. The aspiring singer was only 22-years-old.

Additionally, rumored heavy drug use surrounded Brown’s rise and fall from the top of the charts. Gone were the days of being lightly compared to another dance great, Michael Jackson, and in their place were mentions of a much heavier performer who, as TMZ reported in 2014, once got so tired during a New Edition reunion concert in Mississippi, he bowed out mid-performance and subsequently left the tour.

Nonetheless, Brown still occasionally performs to packed houses of fans who have stuck by him on his nearly three-decade-long music journey, including during his August, 2015, “comeback” performance following the passing of Bobbi Kristina at the Hollywood Bowl, as E! Online noted.

“Thank you for your prayers,” an emotionally moved Brown told the crowd at the end of his joint set with singer Macy Gray.

Now, it seems those prayers are needed now more than ever after an unseen health crisis nearly ended Bobby Brown’s life.

Brown was said to have been alone at the Tarzana, California, home that he shares with wife and manager Alicia Etheridge-Brown on December 19 when he suddenly collapsed. Coming to moments later, he was able to slowly lead himself to his car, and drive himself to a nearby medical center.

Once admitted, doctors relayed to Brown that he would need an emergency blood transfusion to replenish a high volume of blood that he had unknowingly lost.

“Doctors said he had just over one liter of blood left in his system,” a source close to the singer tells Radar Online. “It’s a miracle Bobby didn’t die.”

When asked by the singer how he had lost so much blood, doctors purportedly told him some shocking news: somehow, his intestines had began exploding.

Bobby Brown’s surprising malady apparently occurred after years of his infamous party-boy ways, and a combination of high stress that his source says came with the all-too-soon death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

The insider couldn’t help but to see a bit of irony in the situation.

“He hasn’t come to terms with losing his baby girl [yet], and we thought this [would] be the final straw [that kills him]. It rocked Bobby to the core. It really looked like the end!”

Following the transfusion. Brown was ordered to remain in the hospital for two days, before being released to his family.

Speaking of family, just last year, Bobby’s family expanded with the birth of daughter Hendrix in July. The little one became a sister to six other siblings from Brown, not including the late Bobbi Kristina, born between the early ’80s and 2015. Hendrix’s next-oldest sibling, sister Bodhi, was born on July 11, 2015, nearly two weeks shy of the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

To help heal from his pain, Bobby Brown started work on a memoir, Every Little Step, which shares the name of his 1990 Grammy award-winning hit, which was released in June, 2016.

“Right after I signed on to write my story, I went through one of the most agonizing traumas I had ever experienced with the death of my daughter,” he told Billboard about the book in October, 2015.

“But I was surprised by how therapeutic it was to work on this project, to look at the entire arc of my life and to realize that although there has been considerable pain, I have also been incredibly blessed.”

Reps for Bobby Brown have not commented on this matter.
