Just when I was about to stop: The blonde, blue eyed companion joins our team

I thought I was done with Blue Dragon. Not because of any significant faults -- I'm actually quite enjoying the game. It's more due to the fact that the game is simply too long, has a dismal Achievement curve, and is in the middle of a queue of games that I really want to play.

Then they introduce a new character for me to try out -- one that seems cool and who is definitely nicer to look at than my current lead character. A great example of how the right progression curve can keep the game feeling fresh and the player feeling motivated to continue.

We'll see what kind of cool powers and abilities she brings to the team and then decide.
