What are you playing: Max pain

This week can't be over soon enough. Video games are good at distracting me when I'm depressed, sad, angry, or even happy. But the one thing they can't do is distract me when I'm in physical pain. I've been battling chronic back pain for the last few years, wasting hundreds of dollars in ergonomic cushions that never work. This week has been particularly painful for one reason or another.

But, because I love pain, I'll be picking up Dark Souls for the PC when it launches. That way not only will I be in physical pain, I'll be in mental anguish as well. Are you going to grab it? Prepare to die, indeed.
