So, I'd say I'm a pretty hardcore RPGer, if there is such a thing. I'm one of those 'has to finish every single sidequest' peeps. I routinely rack up in excess of 200 hours on Final Fantasy games, and still can't bring myself to complete the final boss becase there's one damn bit of magic/enchanted item/ character limit break that i don't yet have! So, as you can imagine, playing through the main mission in Mass Effect, where every single time I travel to another system someone seems to buzz me with yet another sub-quest to do, is taking quite some time. Not that I don't enjoy it, mind you. It's just, between class (in Dublin = 3 hour commute each eay twice a week), my social life , work, and a little thing I like to do called SLEEP, fitting my quest-love in to my day (hmm...no one move that hyphen over) is throwing the rest off. One of them has to move over in order to fit it in, and sadly (as much as I wish work could take the bullet), the casualty seems to be sleep. I miss sleep. Sleep was nice.
What's worse, when I do manage to squeeze a few hours slumber into my day, all I see is that damn Prothean vision. Gone are my once happy dreams of giraffes on motorbikes, my time spent as the fifth (and most awesome) ninja turtle, the day I freed the Green Hill people from their cyborg overlord, and that particularly epic occasion when Bruce Campbell and I fought side by side to fend off a zombie/alien invasion!
Sigh. I also think I'm seeing Geth in my waking state as well. In fact, I think there is one behind the photocopier.....
Fall Out3 is going to kill me, isn't it?
