    WTF Oh My Got-Damn!... Its a secret dungeon in Final Fantasy 15.

    In order to reach it you must drive the flying car onto a narrow strip of landing soil in a really bad airplane simulation very reminiscent to TopGun for NES, I've heard that it took some people 1hr just to land the car, for me it took me the first try on the first time I activated the flying button, lucky me I guess (but then again I can land the plane in TopGun)

    One you get into the dungeon the group leaves you and are are no enemies. Then you realize that they tried to turn the game into a Platformer... They tried to make Stealth segments and they didn't work AT ALL and the same goes for this Platforming segment. First of all the controls for this game are SUPER CLUNKY which is fine for an action rgp but I cannot describe how clunky the controls are as a platformer and the only way to know what I'm talking about is to play it yourself. IT DOES NOT WORK! This platforming segment is like a Wipeout(gameshow) simulator mixed with Mario Maker on all iced floors with orinigal Mario1 nes controls on an original new broken controller...

    I played through the game completely blind(no guide) and this dungeon took me about 3hrs and 40mins... Because ones you fall you have to start over. I don't know wtf they were thinking when they decided to make this dungeon because clearly they didn't test play it at all before adding it in.

    the landing only took me the second time because i wasn't looking, the second time was easy, i heard many people got out of the dungeon and didn't save, and they crashed when they lands so that's mean all their efforts in the dungeon is gone.

    i also took me 3 hours to finish the dungeon, i love it.

    that dungeon was FRUSTRATING, i looked at no guides and it was confusing AF. especially when it leads you to the bottom toward the statue. My satisfaction only came after i youtubed it and everyone did worse. I woulda been surprised if people were so used to playing crappy games they could actually complete it quickly the first time

    You mean the disjointed area where you don't know if you are going up or down?that area blown up my mind, it gives headache but i loved it, I've seen some youtubers finishing it in less than 5 minutes.

    Ahhh the famed Pitioss Ruins. It's a secret dungeon in the game so you really have no reason for being upset about the difficulty behind it. Even more secretly it tells a story about the far past of FFXV lore how Ifrit (Yeah the bad summon) tried to save the Goddess Eos through statues, puzzles, and events in the famed Ruins. Gamers and Critics complained about FFXV's story being bland, short and overall unexciting but all those people are horribly short-sighted. This game isn't going to hand feed you the story and was never developed that way. It shows you that Ifrit is really a good guy and if he wasn't betrayed by the rest of the summons the star scourge, the betrayer, the oracle and the crystal wouldn't have needed to happen.

    Landing there is easy, and the dungeon is pretty well done in my opinion.
    Considering you find the storytelling lazy, then I hope you never played dark souls for the story.
