I really don’t have anything to say.. just the same old stuff.
#1 I am still really enjoying FFXIII, there isn’t much about it that I don’t love. My only real complaint is that I wish I could take screen shots during game.. but that is a small quibble and definitely am still enamored. I am thankful for its deterrent while I impatiently wait for FFXIV to come out.
#2 Still psyched and impatiently waiting for FFXIV, I imagine I’ll be a Lalafell Conjurer from Gridania, or Limsa Lominsa.. I’m kind of torn. Gridania seems to be a place of magic lovers, but silly sentiment pulls me a little towards Limsa Lominsa because on a screenshot posted in an article on http://ffxiv.zam.com/story.html?story=22042 It shows a little red emblem to the left of where it says Limsa Lominsa that reminds me a bit of San d’Oria’s emblem (my Vana’diel home). Still, most likely will be Gridania, but we’ll see. If you read that article, they also talk about selecting a Guardian Deity which is kind of intriguing. Mostly, I just can’t wait, even though my pocket book probably is happy enough to wait a bit longer before having to pay a subscription again… aw.. but it will be worth it I think! 🙂 I was joking with Blindrage yesterday about taking a personal day the day FFXIV comes out, in order to create my new avatar… lol!
#3. FFXI… ah.. Vana’diel. I love you forever but sadly, I think I’m kind of done for good this time. With all the new information that has been released, I’m completely overwhelmed. The level cap increase, and just the memories, I’m not sure I could do it. Seriously if it took me 3 years to get to 74 even, then there is no way I’ll ever make 99 even with one job. The few friends I have left are now spread among servers and now so far advanced. It is not fun having to drag people back through time consuming material that they’ve already finished. I’m too far behind and don’t have the drive to spend so much time in order to catch up. There a looming feeling that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it as much anymore. I played for friends, but many of my friends have moved on.. and even passed on.. 😦 I will always cherish my time there, but I’m not sure I can rationalize going back at this point. In a rut and realizing that I think the best times I had there are now behind me. I should just appreciate and cherish, instead of trying to replicate those memories…
