After careful deliberation, I started up on ultros. All my old ffxi buds (who all quit xi WELL before I did) are there, so I gotta pretend I miss em a little bit. Character name is Agent Dee (yep, I got away with it). I had just enough time this morning to make my character, watch most of the opening cutscenes (had to skip some of the limsa lominsa arrival scenes) and jump twice before I had to exit and head to work.
I haven't been excited to play a game like this since ffvii I think.
