Dave!There's never enough time to do all the stuff I want to do.

I've got a pile of DVDs that go unwatched because I don't have the time. I've got stacks of comics which sit unread because I don't have the time. I've got a shelf full of books which are gathering dust because I don't have the time. My DVR is full to bursting with television shows because I don't have the time. And so on. And so on.

But the worst offense of all is the eight video games that sit shrink-wraped and unplayed because I don't have the time. And now I'm told that my copy of the awesomeness that is Dragon Age 2 is arriving. This wouldn't be so bad, except it's going to be really hard to toss it on the pile when A) I loved the previous game, Dragon Age: Origins, and B) It looks incredible...

But, alas, I don't have the time.

And it gets worse.

One of the greatest games ever made is Portal. I love that game so much that I would marry my in-game Weighted Companion Cube tomorrow if it were legal to do so...

And in April, Valve is releasing the most eagerly anticipated game ever... Portal 2! As awesome as the first game was, the sequel looks to be taking things to an entirely new level. There's all kinds of new challenges to be found, and the game looks amazing...

How can I not play that?

I wonder if I can get a note from my doctor to get out of work on April 19th? Because, obviously, not playing Portal 2 the minute it's released would be detrimental to my mental health.

I wish I had time to go to the doctor.

    You need to get a job in the games industry like me and then you can play games all the time and call it research:)

  2. My birthday is April 16th. Maybe you can take the day off and say you are celebrating my birthday. I’m sure that makes it fine, right?

    But you make time to blog? Cool.
    I’ve had a Netflix DVD sitting by the TV for 3 weeks. Maybe this weekend, I’ll finally watch it…

    Sooo glad I’m not a gamer! 🙂
    Hope you find some time to play soon, though!

    I got hooked on WoW (World of Warcraft) a few years ago and it really took over my life… (I’m a 54 yr old woman, not a teen, either). I finally “broke” the habit about a year and a half ago, but it still calls to me from time to time. Those things are TOTALLY addictive. Amazing how much other stuff I can fit into my day now. 😉 I’m sure the games you mentioned are awesome, but I’ll just pass. Knowing how easily I could be sucked in again. Good luck, Dave, in holding your own against the “darkside”. LOL.

  6. 🙁 Hope you find some time, hon.

    Is DragonAge2 Available on the Mac, or are you running Windows on your Mac to play? You might also have a PS3…

  8. Avitable says:

    Between Portal 2, Batman: Arkham Island, and DC Universe Online, I should just give up doing anything except playing video games.

  9. B.E. Earl says:

    I don’t know anything about Portal, but Dragon Age 2 looks awesome. I haven’t played any video games since Final Fantasy XI, so it would take a lot to bring me back to that world. But this one might.
