Yet again putting off one 100+ hour rpg because of another


I started up Dragon Quest IX on Sunday.  Just had a really strong urge to start something new, not having played it yet, but it was pretty much at the top of my backlog list anyway.  Poor Final Fantasy XII... I'm sure I'll power through to the end, skipping a lot of the late hunts, just to finish the game out of guilt.  It's almost a repeat of how I got sidetracked 4 years ago, though I'm much further in the game this time.  But right now I'm loving DQIX, even playing it on the train to and from work.  I loved DQVIII and this has all the best aspects of that game, and more.  Well, the humor comes from other characters this time, not my own party.  I probably won't get much out of multiplayer since the game's been out a while, but I'm working on a couple things, maybe even a GameFAQs meetup, plus a college buddy who recently bought the game that I can probably guilt away from WoW to start this up.  We shall see.

I put off level grinding in FF3 to finish off the Crystal Tower because I started up Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.  I'll be interested to see if I ever go back and finish FF3 now.
