Wow, guys... this is scary. This game has been sucking up my free time like mad. Video game crack, indeed.
I beat Little King's Story finally, so started in on this a few days ago. Unfortunately, I came down with a cold and was home from work, so was happy to have a new game to play. I popped it in to try it out... and played the whole day. I haven't done that in a looooong time. Fire Emblem GC maybe?
And now, I'm totally neglecting the mafia game becauseâ€”you guessed itâ€”I'm too busy playing RFF. That "just one more day" thing is nearly never-endingâ€”scarves out of a magician's pocket, red to blue to yellow to green to purple, etc. At first it's almost daunting, the amount of things you can do... but I find myself easing into these various activities pretty comfortably. Someone will give me a book on cooking, so I'll try it out and realize that I get some real benefits with the results. I get bored with farming, so I go questing for awhile (and find how awesome, like everyone's saying, farming in the dungeons is). I get annoyed at the stumps in my field, encouraging me to learn how to forge to get a new hammer. It's really a great balance, just enough coaxing that I think I'm doing these things on my timetable, even if that's not quite the case.
So... wow, awesome game. Even though I'll likely be totally burnt out on gaming by the time I'm done with this game, I'm really enjoying the ride. <3
