Xenogears thing. Occasionally I recidivate and pick up an old save, but more often than not I just start all over. Same with Legend of Mana, or a handful of other games. It’s a pattern I repeat quite often with a rotation of titles. Xenogears and LoM have a permanent pie wedge on that wheel.
I will often noodle on stuff when I’m imminently bored, such as this here.
