My zen has been getting a little stronger since I started this game a few days ago.

that last gift made me laugh, Cleon. It’s terrible dancing. Which I know is not really the point but laugh I did. XD Sorry Read more

Pippin! It’s a very meta musical comedy that was written by the same person who wrote Wicked. Opening night’s on Thursday!

No one needed to ask for it. I decided to write it to share my experience in the gaming space which I have every right to do and you have every right to disagree with. That’s how conversations are had and things can be addressed. Read more

I see. I’m not going to justify my points because they were stated clearly for anyone who cared to have a thoughtful conversation. Read more

I’m swimming in a neverending backlog as well, and one of the best strategies I have found is similar to your tip to play a couple games at a time. Not only would I say to play a variety of game types, but also very different game lengths. I’m currently working my way through Celeste (less than 10 hrs), Nier Automata Read more

XCOM 2 is such an amazing game, and it whoops my ass! If I only had that game, I think I could survive for a year without boredom. But, always gotta have that new game....almost finished the Frozenlands DLC and then I can put that game to bed, finally! Can’t decide what to get into next....theres like 5 or 6 Read more

Yeah that is so true. I’ve justified so many game purchases by the fact that they’re on sale and I’m going to play them ‘eventually’ so might as well get them now and save money.

I’m sorry, my pride will not let me do this. Plus it neuters the fun for many games since most modern games (unlike early NES titles) are tuned for a decent but not unfair challenge. Read more

I feel playing on easy mode is necessary for some older games that have outdated mechanics. I’m looking at you Titan Quest! I just played it off of the original discs I had for the first time this past week and used a trainer to plow through both the game and expansion pack. If I would have played it without cheating, Read more

Yep. That’s the issue I have. I see a game on sale, immediately check the end date for the sale (then check the old bank account), and then it’s just a matter of time until my self-restraint fails and I buy it. :( This just happened with Divinity Original Sin 1 over the weekend. Read more

I agree number 5 doesn’t work (for me at least). Better to go to sleep on time without trying to force your body awake using chemicals, and get up and play the game properly rested. Playing deep into the night admittedly is fun, but for me that just means that after that night I’ll be worthless, which also affects my Read more

1 + 2 are the two tricks I use the most. My OCD won’t let me play more than one story-based game at a time (just like I can’t be reading more than one book at a time), so I have to focus on one story at a time. But knowing how long games are going to take and checking that against real world time and goals of what Read more

What about buying less games? I know my backlog wouldn’t be nearly as bad if I just had a little more self restraint/realistic expectations about how much time/energy I’m going to have to devote to it. Read more
