I’m not really into Sadomasochism, but I really have been torturing myself this past week.
In the last 2-3 months I have barely played any XBox 360. However in the last week two things happened which I have basically been counting the days down for months. #1: The Broken Steel DLC came out for Fallout 3, meaning I could have my 2nd playthrough of it as bad guy finally. #2: The UFC game for the XBox 360 came out.
To say I’ve been waiting for those two events woud be an understatement – I’ve had them marked on my calender, and got an alert on my Blackberry. So after investing 10 hours into Fallout 3 on the weekend, then 2 hours on UFC when I got it on Tuesday……
I’m not playing them again for the rest of the week.
As much as I want to – I fucking ACHE, I YEARN, to play them – I’m using them as if they were a carrot dangling in front of me. I want to play them so bad, but I refuse to play them until I get everything off my “urgent” to do list. And by everything – that incudes 11 websites that are half in development and need to be finished. That’s right – before I play either of these games again I have to get 11 new websites up and running.
Yeah. Not fun. But it keeps me motivated. As I sit here coding away in wordpress or writing content, I just think about creating that Tank Abbott fighter in the UFC game and going to town on Brock, and it’s enough to keep me going, then once I get that done I will have 3 days of nothing but video games.
That’s pretty much why I haven’t written much lately. I’ve had a lot to write about – but pretty much all my focus is on these websites and my work as a whole.
