Well, I played about 5+ hours today and I think I'm ready to head off to the island to see if the jester is there. I find it interesting that nothing is straightforward in this game. You go to the casino, then you have to go to the island, then to a castle, and then go on a quest with the prince-dude to get the mirror, then once to get the mirror you gotta talk to the old guy and then recharge the mirror in a random battle. Man, I can see why this game is soo long. I'm still having loads of fun--but I wonder if I'll start to loose some momentum once some of the newer games start coming out--I'm thinking of infamous, but not 100% sure yet. Onward!!!
