Thankfully as soon as they saw me waking up on the sofa, whilst they were in the hallway, they just hightailed it out the house.

I'm grateful for cowards right about know as that.... could've gone way worse 😐

Indeed! I hope you beefed up all of your security - that's not nice at all!

I ended up chasing 2 men out of my partner's house to a narrow passage and a locked gate. One tried to stab me in the neck with the screwdriver they used to pop the upvc door while the other was forcing the gate. Thankfully, he was as bad at stabbing as I am good with swinging a kosh

Minor (I hope)... Just been having abdomen pains on and off again the past two months @Kidfried but I'm ok now

And thanks, I enjoyed writing it! EDIT(Just gave it a little tune up and fixed some errors)

Shame I didn't enjoy playing it so much though 😂

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Welcome back! Hope your real life gets better for you, and your next gaming experience isn't such a let down as Resident Evil Zero.

Always sucks when a much beloved franchise has stinker of a game released!

So ive had alot of back problems and ordered me a new bed. Its a casper 12" memory foam mattress. Has anyone tried a bed like this? I need a better bed and wondering if anyone has any input on this.

@ellsworth004 I had a foam mattress in one place I lived and it gave me backache for the first couple of nights as I got used to it but after that it was great.

I’m glad me and my girlfriend agreed on the type of mattress we liked when we bought one after moving into our new place. Her one back at her parents’ house is so soft it also gives me backache.

I’m getting old

Hey y'all, having real problems at sticking with games. I am normally a very much complete a game before moving on (unless the game is really really dire). I have just struggled to complete much this year. The only games to hook me have been smaller indies.

I've given up on Sekiro this year, and faltered on a few other titles. Almost finished Bloodborne for the second time and DLC for the first time but now finding it hard to find motivation to get off my backside and get through the last 5-6 hours. I also suck at boss fights.

Not sure if it is the insane size of my backlog doing this to me that I feel pressure to move on. Or maybe I am just too stressed at the moement to really savour what I am playing. Anyone else have this?

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Rudy_Manchego it could be that your just unsure as to what you actually want to play right now so your switching through trying to find that one that grabs you

you know like when you flip through the TV channels until something catches your eye

@Rudy_Manchego
I routinely bail on games for many reasons, but mostly because I have a pretty short attention span for some games. It either grips me completely in some way or it doesn't.

A lot of the time with something with a good online element, I'll be wrapped up in that and disregard the single player a bit. Most recently that's happened with Ace Combat 7.

I tend to really hammer a game for a week or two then just pull back from it. And quite often go back to them well after the fact, but sometimes not.

Not something I worry about if I'm honest.

Going back to finish the SP of Doom (2016) soon

@Rudy_Manchego I’m definitely right there with you. I have developed a propensity to bail on games too. I have had trouble with games of length especially. I was able to finish Red Dead 2, but I keep sputtering on Persona 5 and The Witcher 3. I look at my backlog and the games that seem to interest me most are the short ones or the pickup-and-play ones. So my last few games I’ve spent time with have been fighters, indies, platformers, and music games.
I wish I had a solution for you. It’s weird what seems to strike my fancy though as lately I booted up The Handsome Collection on a whim and I’m loving it. With super awesome games like P5, W3, GoW, Spider-Man, and AC Origins and Odyssey in my backlog, you’d think I’d want to play all the GOTY contenders, but problem is, the time investment is a turn off lately.

Rudy_Manchego

@FullbringIchigo There is defo an element of analysis paralysis as I get with netflix. It is weird though, I got utterly addicted to Bloodborne, am within spitting distance of getting where I wanted to get and now feel like I can't face more bosses.

@KALofKRYPTON I have a couple of friends who are the same as you and play what they want and when but I think it is the OCD in me that wants to 'get through' games and then I am just failing. I normally have to really fall out of love with a game to end it. Actually a lot has to do with what @Th3solution says. Length is starting to be an issue. I bailed on both The Witcher 3 and Red Dead 2. Amazing games, got a good few hours into both but it felt I would be playing forever. The only exception has been long games on the Switch, such as Skyrim and BOTW. I might get the W3 port because handheld and playing away etc. seems to make games easier for me to focus on.

Completely a first world problem but it is diminishing my enjoyment a little bit.

@Rudy_Manchego Just play shorter games until you are in the right frame of mind to go back to the larger games or ones you've not yet finished. I'm on the very last boss in both the main game and dlc for Bloodborne, I'm not sure if I'll ever go back to it at this stage.

I've got a huge backlog too and I use to get a bit stressed about it. To the point that I wasn't enjoying gaming as much. But I think that had a bit to do with over thinking about it if that makes sense? So I made a decision to just try and forget about my backlog and just play more what I'm in mood for. If that is a game from my backlog than so be it or it could mean buying something new. It may mean some games get left not finished, but I'm okay with that and I seem to be enjoying my gaming more. It's not really worth get stressed over as gaming should be fun.

I know that might work for everyone but it seemed to work OK for me.

@ellsworth004 I hear a lot of good things about memory foam. It isn't for me (I need to sleep on the firmest possible mattresses, to the point where I prefer the hardwood floor when I visit my Dad's for the holidays) but for folks with the most common back problems, it apparently does wonders. As @Thrillho says, just might take you a couple nights to get used to it (and for it to get used to you). Best of luck!
