23:31 - !J.O.O.E.! I think it's more the silly fetch quests than anything. You'll find yourself fighting a lot most likely though. Areas aren't level-scaled so you can wander into areas with enemies above your level (which I like).

23:26 - !J.O.O.E.! I'm enjoying it. As has been there's tons of superfluous side-missions and some odd nitpicking issues, but it looks great, the combat is decent (as a rogue anyway), story seems good so far, good dialogue etc.
