i've stopped playing for a while now. my gf gets tired of games easily -_-... then we got Okami and completed it.. much more fun
FF 9 is getting a bit tedious. there is no point to fighting except to grind for SP to learn more skills (whoop-dee-do....) and then you keep getting useless cards for the extremely lame mini-game that gives you no bonuses whatsoever for playing it.
we're at the point where the party's escaped the main bad guy's castle/prison... there are hints of some other civilization which wasn't part of the beginning of the story whatsoever so it's giving me the feeling of another generic FF story.
