In the meantime, I have a couple projects I am behind on because I have been feeling to poorly to do much except come home from work and flop and pray for the end. I'm going to try and get cracking on that today....except James just bought Xenosaga on his credit card (BAD JAMES!!!!), and is forcing me to play with him in a few minutes. What I mean by force is that I asked him to not play unless I can watch, because I want to see the game..so he started playing just now from his save point, and will continue on with or without me when he gets to the place where he died last night . MEAN! I'll tell you.
Xenosaga, while quite gray in the traditional sense of the Japanese story, is MUCH better than .hack. Xenosaga does incorporate SO many RPG's into the storyline, however, down to the girl in the Brass Castle (Suikoden) banging on her barrel (which we find out is a robot). Printed test is the same font as FF X. Email component quite reminecient of .hack. Little things like that. Ok James is bothering me to go, so im going.
