USstreamer: Let's Discover the World of Final Fantasy XV Together [Update: Archived!]

Jeremy dives into the demo for this long-awaited RPG at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, and you're invited.

I was there at the beginning, back at E3 2006 when Final Fantasy XV was first announced. Sure, back then it was called "Final Fantasy Versus XIII," and it was a Tetsuya Nomura joint rather than a project under the supervision of Crisis Core and Type 0 director Hajime Tabata, but in the end it's still the same basic game. Right? And today, the playable demo is finally out.

So where has this nine-year journey taken us? What is the end result of all those weird "sneak peeks" shot with camcorders and played as a Tokyo Game Show teaser behind closed doors? What has the game's staff upheaval wrought? Is it basically just a Kingdom Hearts game with smaller shoes for the heroes?

I... don't know yet, actually. I haven't had a chance the play the demo, and I decided not to spoil myself on the demo by reading Mike's preview. Instead, I'm going to stream the demo this afternoon sight-unseen. So if you haven't played it yet, we can experience it together. (If you have played it, you can watch me bumble through scenery you already know.) Supposedly it's a pretty lengthy demo, so I doubt I'll make it all the way through in a single stream. Let's find out... together.

I'll begin streaming at 2 p.m. Pacific (that's 5 p.m. for you more civilized old-worlders on the East Coast). Please join me as I fumble about and wonder aloud what on earth is even happening. It'll be fun! Probably!
