Journeys of a Frustrated Gamer
I work 9 hours / day. I spend about 1.5 hours just getting ready for work and driving. Another hour eating, cooking, cleaning. Then I get to Kung fu...where I get hurt in sparring. I'm in pain. It's a total of two hours used with the transportation and shower. Another hour or so answering some emails and doing misc stuff around the house. It's 10pm.... I have about an hour before bed. I sit down with my PS3 to play some 3D Dot Heroes. It's the first time I've been able to play my PS3 in about 3 days. I sooo need to relax.
I'm in the 2nd dungeon. It's nothing TOO hard, but I die a couple of times, since I'm tired and I'm playing a little sloppy. I plow my way through, find some hidden objects, solves some puzzles, and an hour later, I'm finally up to the big boss. It about bed time, but I'm pretty sure I can take him before I need to sleep. I die. I 'continue' my game. I'm at the front of the dungeon, but I activated the warp, so I can zip right to him. Sweet. That puts me in the room right to the south of him. I just need to walk north, and I'll get another shot at him I so richly deserve. The screen transitions to black, as if it's loading. And then it happens. it stops. The music keeps playing, but the screen stays back.
I just want to scream. After all, no one thinks to save every 10 minutes in a game that allows play to continue easily should the player die. My progress for the night, nay, the entire week...now lost.
Tomorrow is another day of work. I have rank review in Kung Fu and I'm still in pain. I needed to relax before another full day, but instead I'm stressed. I want a refund for this ulcer Atlus just gave me, but I know I'm not getting one. SIGH.
