Well I think part of the reason I'm frustrated is because the annual holiday game drop is almost here and this game is really starting to feel never ending. Combine that with very little time to play due to school and work, and I'm really getting anxious to finish this one. I'm at the very end of Chapter 5, though, so I'm getting closer. Hoping to finish it by the end of the first week in October.
To give you an idea of how much is left, there are 7 chapters total and the seventh chapter doesn't have a field study portion. I don't know how much time you have to play games, but it should be doable.
