My thoughts on the game after 4 months

Okay. I've been playing FFXI now for 5 months. As you probably can tell from my posts that I enjoy the game immensely. I've been playing since the beginning of June 2008. Personally, I'm not a gamer. Never really been one. I've had a PS1 and a PS2. And now I have PS3. Sounds like a dedicated fan to Sony? Yeah I am. I like the fact they are the only system out in the market that allows you to continue playing old games on their newer systems. However, I digress from my main topic, FFXI. FFXI keeps my interest in multiple ways: interacting with people all over the world, not redundant, and the scenery is gorgeous. Sometime I feel that this place, Vanad'iel, is alive. The game is also a great escape from a stressed reality. However, It's not like you can't get stressed out in the game. (You should seen me on Tuesday.) I was cussing up a storm because some Taru character kept stealing my leeches every time I attacked one. The S.O.B. I think her name is Natalieanne, I hope she reads this. You B@$&H!!!!! Anyway, I digress again. So far in the game I'm captivated and now I am playing this game more than watching TV. Even more than cleaning and taking care of house. In the coming weeks though, I will be getting back to my normal schedule. Play FFXI 2 - 3 times a week, do my consulting work, and hang out with friends. That's all after my regular 9-5 job. I have so much to do in life. I can't be in Vanad'iel all the time. Reality is where I need to be. Don't get me wrong. I still love the game. I look forward to playing it until I get bored with it, which I doubt it. I am looking forward to the new expansion pack they are creating. I haven't even made a dent in the ones that I already have. The latest update to the game came in Sept (2008) which included the level sync feature. I really okay with it if I only want to gain experience. However, if I want my skill ups and standard improvements, then I rather party the old fashion way. Anyway, you may see my blog be a little bit scarce as I get back onto a new schedule playing.
