Maybe I have too much free time now that I'm refusing to work overtime... right.

Beat Final Fantasy XII finally. I am completely apathetic about that game. I can't say that I hated it, or even disliked it, but I also can't say that I am overly fond of it. Basic system and controls really were pretty good. Graphics, as always, were top notch. The character design was hit or miss, but mostly hit. Music had mostly great if not overly subdued qualities. The basic ideas behind the plot were even solid. The layer that brings it all together on the other hand... was crap.

The plot of the story itself is a little too interwoven, like a really tacky wicker chair. The party of 6 was stitched together like a quilt and I never quite bought the camaraderie... or even the character development. Over all it was a highly polished, unconvincing, wonderful, crap-shoot of an experience.

The playability didn't have any major flaws like some of the more recent Final Fantasies, but the story wasn't as lovable or even memorable.

It's like a cake that turns out flat. Just disappointing, even if it is edible with all that frosting on top.

In other news, PS3 price drop means I should have a shiny new toy by the end of the week :D
