How You Can Tell A Weasel Is Busy|
Yesterday, 5:00 p.m.: The Ferrett heads to the EBWorld across the street to pick up the PC version of Knights of the Old Republic II (which was the #5 item on his Christmas Greed list).
Today, 11:35 a.m.: The game still sits in the box, in the chair he laid it in when he came home, still in the white plastic bag he bought it in.

*whimpers for the poor game* At least take it out of the bag and inhale the scent of freshly perchased electionic goodness.

I boght the same game yesterday at 4pm (CST) and played it until 11:30 last night....
Your self-restraint is admirable. Regardless of what I was doing, I'd have played it immediately upon returning home.

I'm sorry for your loss--obviously a close friend of family member passed and that is the only conceivable reason...

I am going to buy that game this weekend. However, as long as I'm playing World of Warcraft on a daily basis, I'm not likely to get into KOTOR2 for a while.
I just want to have it available when I'm ready to start playing it.
Agreed! I'm hooked on WOW currently, too. Server?

I am playing on Kargath, 33rd lvl paladin named Cassen.
Erin knew I was really sick a few weeks ago when she came home and found me collapsed in the bed and a large box from the Science Fiction Book Club sitting unopened on the dining room table.
Bad Ferrett, no Cookie
Ok, I'm reporting you to the Game Abuse Commission. Or something.
Heh. - I feel your pain.
Me? to make the gaming experience better I would have bought a new video card with the game. But I would have waited till the weekend to actually install it - too busy working and all. And upon finally having time to install the new video card - spend several hours loading drivers, installing, patching and updating - only to have the game crash after exactly 3 min ever time.
Then spend a weak - uninstalling / reinstalling, reformatting the hard drive, checking memory. All to have the game crash, but in a new way (now after exactly 5 min)
Finally spend a second weak researching - only to discover the video card I bought was NOT compatible with my motherboard
(AGP x2, x4 and x8 are very different voltage wise. I don't know how the card worked at all!)
Finally - reinstalling the original video card - to find it runs just fine! Wahoo!. Then updating drivers - and kill the video card completely. (ARGH!)
Spend 3 more days trying old drivers till I find one that works. (stupid, stupid, stupid)
Well at least that is what I did with World of Warcraft.
Got the game the night it came out.... only to wait almost a month to start playing. (while everyone I knew was having a good time) If I had the cash I would have just bought a new PC after day 2.
If it an't broke don't fix it,
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing (in my hands),
Back away from the computer and no one gets hurt.
Hope you get to Knights ASAP!

tsk tsk.. that poor unloved game.. perhaps he shall run away to the land of misfit toys?? you should be ashamed of yourself! :spank:

Are you sure you're feeling okay, honey? I mean, you did come to bed at a decent hour last night....

See? He wuvs you!! Soooo much!
Lucky is the woman that can wrest her gamer from his game. ;)

It gets worse: I thought about playing it at 1:00, but then I had to run out and buy the woman I loved some All-Bran cereal so she could eat healthy.
How pathetic is that?
|Date:||February 10th, 2005 11:40 am (UTC)|| |
Not pathetic at all - it beats being 15 minutes into a campaign and having to go out *right now*, with tapping foot and stern jaw to accelerate you out the door, to acquire aforementioned cereal...
Nah. I'd told her that I wouldn't do it today, right before she left for work.
Thus, no rolling pins are involved.

Aw! You are SO sweet!!!
I love you.

Relax, relax. It just heightens the anticipation - like buying lingerie (or similar) for your lover two weeks before $occasion instead of the day before, like a typical dude does. :)
I bought mine on XBox before Christmas and it still sits unopened. At least I got it out of the bag, though. I understand and feel your pain. Group hug!

There With Ya
"Halo 2" still sits unopened on my shelf, and I pre-ordered it.
Don't worry, one swift injection will make it ALL better...
ooooooooooh that happens to me sometimes and then some days later I spot the bag and say "what is happening to me!!!!!!!!" and I curse grown-upness yet again.
Seconded. Like nobody has ever seconded anything before!
