I'm having the worst withdraws today, as I just unlocked my chocobo last night. I love how they let us use him as a companion, having him running behind healing me is absolute joy. Reminds me of XIII-2, having a chocobo fighting along side.
I also spent a ton of time yesterday grinding FATEs to acquire company seals. I had to get 1,000 seals to get the chocobo, then 2,000 to get a promotion, 3,000 to get the next promotion, and 1,500 more to get the armor for my chocobo. I had just got my second promotion when the servers starting barking at me last night to log out before they shut them down. This might be the longest week ever having to wait to get that armor, which will indeed be the first thing I do.
I'm such a nerd.
