But MY GOD! Now I remember why I left it at that particular point last time round. I've found my way to the Omega Ruins (after getting two Celestial Weapons and Yojimbo) and the monsters there are nasty. And prolific - move about 4 paces and get another random attack! And don't talk to me about that damn Great Marlbaro... every single time that git shows up, Bad Breath attack poisons everyone and I get to sit there for a minute watching my characters die. Very, very annoying.
I am so tempted to say "sod it" and go straight to Sin and end the game that way. If it gets any closer timewise, then I might well. *shrugs*
