Weekend Recovery

I spent far less time than usual in MMOs this weekend. I am still in the habit of being in my computer chair, but I had a few reasonable play sessions rather than a continuous binge. The weekend felt so much longer.

MMOs are great for flow, as well as being ideal Skinner boxes. Time gets away from me (and the wife in the back row: “I know“). It was like getting hours and hours back. I’m not sure what to do with the cognitive surplus yet. I’ll probably blow it on another game. I hear that Spore is out.

  1. Download a Korean free-to-play MMO that has been translated (more or less) into English, play with your screenshot util’ on overdrive, and post with commentary.

    You like playing MMOs, you like blogging, and writing blog posts about an MMO will give you a break from the grind of actually playing it.

    Those are games not many of your readers know anything about at all (and yet, being MMOs, would be interesting to them), and I promise there’s more blog fodder there than you could possibly imagine.

    So it’s a win-win, for you.

    If you also, while the client is downloading, move to the back row there and do manly things to your wife, then it’s a win-win-win.

    Or hey, maybe even a quadruple-win if you then also blog about that.
