Computer and internet troubles have plagued me since my return, no biggie, I'll have them sorted out in no time. In the meanwhile I have Skies of Arcadia to keep me busy.
I get to be a sky pirate. Yes, you
read that right and it's exactly what it sounds like. Only cooler. Which beats what I was doing before hooking up the Gamecube:
Having a rather intense staring contest with my cat. I win by default because he always falls asleep.
The game plays a lot like your typical JRPG, but you have an airship.
Also, maybe I just haven't played a JRPG in a long while, but this seems
like more fun than what I'm used to in a JPRG. Less predictability, if
that makes sense. Normally in this sort of game I've figured out the
good guys, the bad guys, and how it's all going to end within the first
hour of gameplay. Not so here.
