I tried picking up Tales of the Abyss again a few weeks ago when I finished Tales of the World. Because hey! All tales games are alike, and they're fun.
I dropped it shortly after because I think I got lost somewhere.. or had some stupid "evade the guard" stage, or some crap like that. Then I picked it up and got interrupted during a major story cut scene, and that pissed me off. So I dropped it again :X
I picked it up today, and I'm always so lost when they tell me to go places but the instructions suck or whatever, so I may end up putting it down again. I'm about 32 hours in, my party is in the mid-to-high 30s, and I just want to get to the end of the game, but I don't think I'm close at all.
I'm also playing Baldur's gate. I spent a week dicking with it only to NEVER get it installed on my POS computer. I'm playing it on Matt's laptop right now.. which also has Vista and a graphics card one series higher than mine. (go figure). I forgot how difficult Baldur's gate is, though, so I've started calling it "Reload gate" after what I have to do every other encounter. I'm not paying 100g to res idiot mages that stand in front of spiders and melee, kkthx. I'm also not getting to steal as much stuff as I remember getting to steal, so maybe I'll try installing Arcanum too. I mean, that game was huge and had tons of stuff to steal.
Unfortunately, Matt's laptop is setup on the 3rd comp desk, which is right above the AC vent. I don't play for very long before my toes are freezing off. D:
