I’ve tried.

I really tried to get into Ark the Lad. I think I gave it about 4 or 5 hours and I just have no motivation to continue at this point. The game is just not interesting to me: the story is bland and basically nonexistant and the combat is plain vanilla with little promise of anything better in the future. Nothing about Ark inspired me to write. I could be wrong but I suspect I’ve seen all there is to see from Ark the Lad.

Sorry old chap but I’m going to put you on the shelf. I may get you back out again, but for right now it’s time to say goodbye.

I think I’m going to start Suikoden 1 next. It should be interesting as I only have a copy of the disc itself (thank you local pawn shop) and no manual.
