Gamer Break

I'm totally not feeling it today. Not feeling like being awake, not feeling like eating, not feeling like saying a bloody word. And yet, here I sit, typing away. Hmmph.

I woke up with a massive migraine this morning while Marco was fast asleep on the couch so he wouldn't wake me when he came to bed. If I've not been getting good sleep, he'll take up the sofa instead. Last night, however, he would've been more than welcome in bed with me; I was up about every hour, tossing and turning, and taking a while to fall back to sleep every time.

Stephanie ended up not going to work today; her daughter has strep throat, for which she had to go to ER because her regular doctor couldn't get her in to see them. We went and did our grocery shopping, after which I came back home, cuddled Marco for a little while, and went back to sleep. Now Marco's at work, I'm home alone, still have a headache, and now I feel urpy to boot.

Besides all that, I've been having an extended flare-up in my fibromyalgia. It's been a week and a half since it started and it's getting worse all the time. It seems like no matter what I do -- heat, ice, tylenol, ibuprofen, rest, exercise, anything! -- it just feels worse. I wish there was some way to turn those nerves off. I cannot stand that burning and tearing sensation in my shoulders, neck, and upper back. It's the worst, especially with a migraine to top it off.

So I think I'm going to just lay low and play some video games today. Marco's friend let us borrow this awesome game for PlayStation 2 called Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon (link goes to page). It's a role-playing game with real-time fights (somewhat like in Final Fantasy X-2, although I didn't care for that one), demons that you control, and plenty of puzzles, mysteries, and unsolved cases to decipher. I've got about 70 hours logged on my current game at level 69 so far. I've got at least another 20 hours to go before I beat it, but that's mostly because I spend quite a bit of time leveling up before big fights and fusing my demons. That's the other fun part -- you get to fuse your demons when they've outgrown their usefulness to make stronger ones. The visuals in the game are also fantastic. The only drawback, in my opinion, is that some of the street-level screens are difficult to navigate, but nothing insurmountable in the slightest. Best of all, I've only had to consult a walk-thru once for this game, which is unusual for me.

Anyway, enough out of me for today. Hope everyone is well, and I'll (hopefully) be back in full working order tomorrow. As always, thanks for reading and thanks for all the feedback and comments! It totally makes my day to know that y'all enjoy my blog!

'Til tomorrow,

Gaming breaks are fantastic. I wish I had more time and the necessary equipment to enjoy more breaks for games. What? No gaming equipment? It's a very sad story that you can read on my site: Playstation 3 and the Yellow Light of Death.

We got the RRoD on our 360 not once, but twice. I brought it back after the second time, but only for a few days. The PS2, however, has never let us down. It was another item that survived the fire (or rather the "flood" in our case) beautifully.

When I had the spare money to spend on a 360, they were having way too many problems with the RRoD. I avoided it. My launch day, in Japan, PS2 failed me after about a year. The one I got after that is still alive in the hands of someone else.

My PS3, also launch day (US), gave me more than my money's worth. A new one is forthcoming.

When I'm off work I need to take a break FROM gaming every now and again. Mainly because my wife-to-be would kill me if she didn't get the TV sometimes (my Xbox is in the front room as that's where we have the biggest TV) and we also need to go outside to meet the actual-reality people too. My favorite RPG of the moment is Fallout 3 and I am eagerly awaiting the release of Mass Effect 2 on the 360.

@TGG -- Sounds like me - Marco likes his face time with the PS2, too. I really miss Fallout 3 -- thanks for reminding me again why I miss our 360 :( That game was easily my favorite out of every last one I've played.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to open up old wounds. If it makes you feel any better I can't play on my Xbox at the moment because the other half is watching Pretty Woman. 80's hairstyles are so funny.
