I own my fair share of Japanese role-playing games, many of which I’ve purchased and have gotten hours of enjoyment out of… watching them collect dust on my shelves.

I’ve beaten the Dreamcast classic two times in the past. Now, I’m working on my third effort, proving that despite my ever growing responsibilities as an “adult,” I’m still extremely successful at procrastination.
