At the time of my work on this article, I’ve played 39 hours and 3 minutes of Octopath Traveler. As I write this, I hear the plaintive tones of game characters in the back of my mind, visualize the next battle and think about my gear.

I’m also weighing the $10,000 cost (within the game’s world) to fix my reputation in Victor’s Point against save scumming (reverting back to a former save file after triggering an unfavorable in-game result) for a Divine Blade I desperately want to play. But I’m at work, trying to be an adult, so writing about Octopath will have to do — for now.
