Hi Fili! I dropped FFXI a few months ago. I'm thinking of playing casually now and then. I'd do it for sure if there was an easy time to play casually, but the life/wife keeps me pretty busy these days.
Me too man. D= I work for the local news now, so there isn't a whole lot of time to sit down and do stuff inbetween driving places, coordinating useless bullcrap to put on television, and trying to stay in shape (now that I don't play DDR anymore, it's a lot harder than I thought. =/)
I play a little bit here and there, and it's okay I guess, but I just don't get the same feel I used to. It feels like a cheaper game now. Not all that different from Warcraft. I dunno though, I enjoy it all the same, just for different reasons.
PS: Scholar is amazing. I remember I quit around the time Wings released and it was garbage, but it has so much application now. I'm glad I came back. D=
