I did not experienced such incident when I played some FF games, maybe it was just a technical error on the part of the game since sometimes there are some sudden changes occurred to some game console.
First and foremost, you are highly welcome to the forum Final Fantasy. It's an honor to have you as a member in this honourable platform. I'm also playing Final Fantasy XV and I must tell you that it's being a great experience for me. If I should ask, what avenue are you making use of in playing the game? Is it a console or mobile device?
Haha, better being careful than fall victim to something you aren't sure about. I love how critically you analyze and view things. Personally I didn't bother about viewing his attachments, I only rely on his words, hoping he would respond back. So therefore, till he shows up, I'm not clicking any attachments as well.
Cautiousness comes with experience of being a long time PC user. There could be a virus embedded in that picture for all I know. Though I'm not sure why I'm even bothering, he/she clearly won't return to the forum.
