Progress:
Discovered the secret city of Esthar, went to space, got an airship.

Thoughts:
The more I play this game the more I like it, and the story just keeps me coming back. The space sequence reminded me a lot of the bit in Final Fantasy VII, only it was much better, very cool.

It’s at this point where I started realizing that Final Fantasy 8 is very much a proto Final Fantasy X. Maybe my feelings will change when I actually play that game again, but right now I’m drawing a lot of parallels. FF8 is Final Fantasy’s first out and out love story with FFX being the next game to follow that, and the general themes and and feelings of both games are very similar.
