I don't have a major progress update tonight. I just started things up, and I'm sitting about 1:15 in. I've basically just gotten up to where the demo finished (defeating the Guardian of the Wood). Oliver and Mitey are both at Lv. 5.

If one thing's certain, it's that I can't get over how BEAUTIFUL this game is.

Starting out slower than I like, I spent awhile grinding and practicing counters, now I'm cleaning up all errands and the bounty in Ding Dong Dell. I'm on lunch break now Smiley Happy

Brief status update-

I'm 2:45 in, but I'm still finishing up in Ding Dong Dell. I've finished all of the bounties and quests so far. Oliver and Mitey are both at Lv. 7, I believe. I'm about to head over to get the wand from King Tom. Hopefully I'll be able log a few hours today and provide y'all with a more substantial update later.

Did a little work tonight. I just got to Al Mamoon. Everything up till now has been pretty easy, so I'm expecting the handholding to stop soon. It's nice for a while, but these things aren't too difficult to figure out on your own, so...

Anywho, some stats:

Oliver- Lv. 12

Familiars:

Mitey (Mite)- Lv. 12
Esteban (Thumbelemur)- Lv. 11
Juarez (Seed Sprite)- Lv. 8

I decided after Mitey that I'm going to start nick naming my Familiars. It makes the game a little more interesting. Smiley Very Happy

Some other notes- I really like the battle system. I'm not sure why, but it feels a bit like FF XIII to me. Others say it's Tales-esque, but I wouldn't know because I've never played a Tales game. It's involved enough at times to not feel like a "mash X" fest, but the battles aren't inconveniently drawn out like in other RPGs.

And how awesome of a character is Drippy? Seriously, this dude is a HOOT! I knew I'd like him the second he appeared and started giving Oliver grief days after his mom died. Takes a special kind of crazy to make fun of a crying kid. Smiley Very Happy

I gave King Tom some enthusiasm and defeated Hickory Dock. Good times.
