Well, I'm back on the first continent looking for a ship and just passed the area where you had to find the horse through beggar's ally--which was funny because I was surrounded by homeless people, and I was breaking their pots/barrels for hidden stuff.  It's funny that when I enter a dudes house, I steal whatever stuff I can find in cabinets and pots, and they don't seem to mind.

Hope you're enjoying it -- it's one of my favorite games of all time. You should know though that actually getting on the ship only marks less than a quarter of the main quest (and even the post-game -- which is more or less mandatory because that's where most of the story is revealed -- could take you anywhere between 10 and 20 hours depending if you wanna go the strategic route or the grind route respectively). It's hellishly long, but I loved every minute of it.

Yeah the game is like, uh, 80 something hours.  Not including the post-game stuff.

Great game, probably the best RPG of that gen.

I remember that game. It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

It's a good game. I played about...7 hours (?) of it. It's a little to slow for my tastes, but it's an extremely polished JRPG.

I played through half of it, and stoped. It's  an amazing game I love the characters the voice acting the visual style is top notch, just halfway through I pretty much got bored, the story just didn't keep me interested after awhile and so I stoped. Shame really.
