Play Day-by-Day?

#1 Edited by PureRok (4236 posts) -

Anyone plan to play this game day-by-day (or month to month)? The first day in-game is April 11, 2011.
 
I'll probably do it if I can finish up my second playthrough within the next two months.

You won't be able to do it perfectly. There are times, like during finals, where you cannot save between days. You'd have to either leave your PS2 on for a week, or just go through that week all at once and then not play for a week. Other than that, good luck if you actually do it.

That would be some real commitment right there, could be pretty awesome though. 
 
Some days you'll only be playing about 5 minutes, and some days upwards of 6 hours.

It would be way too tempting to just say "Fuck it I'm gonna keep playing."

WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THAT TO THEMSELVES?

Sounds neat, the idea has crossed my mind a couple of time. Wouldn't do it myself since I've already played through this game twice and watched some dudes play through it as well.

@Sweep: I dunno....seems kinda cool to me!
 
I guess, it would be annoying to have to stop playing for 4 months when the game hits december, now that I think about it.

And I was thinking about this too. I don't think it's possible to do perfectly, unless you intend to just press X one day and then leave the PS2 on until the day after.

Some days you won't be playing at all (i.e. exam days being 5 nanoseconds, or the study/Junes event with nonexistent days). Doing the dungeons in one hit, though... It's possible using Traesto and getting out every now and again, but holy crap.
