A little explanation here…

Ok, I guess I probably should clarify my previous post on Final Fantasy and why I chose to blog about it…..if anyone cares. You care, right? *ahem* Well, here goes….

During the summer, work can get sort of…..slow.  Like, crawling slow. Like a slug crawling across a turtle’s back while the turtle walks through glue, slow. In those instances, I’m allowed to break out my trusty Nintendo DS which I have recently upgraded to it’s XL brother. It’s small, compact, and also has…..ta da!!!  Final Fantasy III!

Having all but finished Lego Batman (93% done), I figured it was time I delved into something with a little more meat on it’s bones. Don’t get me wrong, Batman gave me quite a few months worth of entertainment and I’m still not done….just on hiatus. Oh, and by the way, if you’re into this sort of thing, I found a pretty good walkthrough here.

While on a “Bat-hiatus”, I’ve been playing the heck out of FFIII.  I’ve been at it for over 40 hours now (no, not consecutively) and am about at the two-thirds mark.  A very fun game, like most of the other Final Fantasy offerings.  The big deal about this version, when it came out way back in the day, was the Job system. Unemployment has no foothold in the FF universe, trust me. Jobs are sort of like ‘classes’ back in the original FF.  Though, here, you level up as normal the entire game but are able to switch out your abilities via different Jobs.

Just a few of the jobs, from top, left to right: Black Belt, Warrior, Red Mage, White Mage, Bard, Viking, Monk, Black Mage

I won’t go into detail on FFIII but, suffice it to say, it’s a very FUN game with lots to do and lots to explore.  If you own a DS and enjoy RPGs, pick this one up….you won’t be sorry.
