Evening Reading

Tomorrow, I'll be going to play some fighting games with Shackers at bcyde's place. Should be a ton of fun and I'm sure someone will be doing a full write-up along with photos and what not. If you're in the southern California area, you should attend! It is, however, cutting into my valuable StarCraft II time.

As always, you can listen to the latest episode of Weekend Confirmed.

        :D indeed. Once this game is over, I think I'm going to need grief counseling.

      Play something else. I enjoyed it when I played but eventually it was a chore and I was glad to move on to other things.

      Another night playing The Witcher :/

      This game has so many ups and downs to it. One minute I'm loving it and the next it's the worst thing I've ever played and I just want it to end. I can't really stop now because I'm halfway into Ch.4 :/

        I gave it a good few hours and just gave up. I liked it well enough but there's so much anachronistic crap in there that I just couldn't handle it anymore.

        Want to buy RPGs that don't make me fiddle with my inventory every ten minutes.

        Agreed. I stopped at Chapter 4.. just couldn't take it any longer (though I heard it gets better).. but I'll definitely try the next installment.

      It wasn't until a few months after I quit playing WoW that I realized how much better life was without it. I was able to enjoy tons of fantastic games that I previously ignored/didn't have time for due to arena and raid schedules, and no longer had to worry about committing blocks of time for in-game shit. It felt more like a job than entertainment towards the end, which is so fucking wrong.

      Just cancel it and resubmit for the expansion! The game is stonedead right now, been that way for the past half year.

      This is kind of funny to me. You seem dissatisfied and yet you willingly spend your night doing it. That's kind of sad.

          If you're not having fun, don't play. I love my raiding and WoWing. It's something I look forward to every week.

          She sounds nice... You could do many things with the time you spend on wow, but you are probably addicted like everyone else. Just another drug. How many hours/days does it say you have played on your oldest/ most played character?

              ah right. is there anything you would love to spend your time doing instead of playing wow? like learn a language, watch certain films, read books, learn how to play an instrument etc? I have played wow and know how addictive it is. I would look at my play time and just realise I have wasted so much time which I could have spent developing my 'skills'.

        He's playing WoW! There must be something wrong with him socially and he must be addicted!

          If he's not happy with it then playing it is stupid, and we're happy to tell him so.

      I recently quit wow, and I've been playing since vanilla beta. The game is just not entertaining anymore.
