You'll finish it in a week. I put in a few hours every night starting on Wednesday, and I ended up collecting a whole SHIT TON of the "light Seeds" and went above and beyond with a lot of other exploration.

If you put your mind to it, you could EASILY complete it under 15 hours. And then you get yet another achievement, too.

I'm half tempted to sell my copy though. I loved it, but really - will I go at it again...?

Hrm.

edit: Anyone interested? XD

I just downloaded Personal Trainer Cooking from the Lisa Kudrow commercial. So far it looks amazing, the interface and tutorials are great. I have yet to make anything from it but I certainly will soon.

On my to do list is Chicken Tikka Masala over Tumeric Rice, Porcini Mushroom Risotto, Fettuccine with Porcini Mushrooms, Korean Potato Pancakes and Russian Cheese Pancakes.

This "game" is bursting with possibilities.

Gads - not really interested in any more games, I'm full up until the next millenium!

Lord knows I'm going to be busy with Dead Space until I get my voice back, and then I'll return to L4D territory

World of Warcraft when I have the time.... *slurp*

I think the funniest is when people get pissed off at me for not knowing what to do in some situations. I'm sorry for not dedicating my life to an online game, I like real life more than simulated...

And that pisses people off more, because there's nothing dumber than playing a multiplayer game while immediately taking a self-righteous attitude towards doing the same thing everyone else you're talking to is doing, but poorly.

Why invest the time if you're just going to be shitty and smarmy?

So you're saying that unless you can fully commit hours and hours and hours and days to a game, you're not allowed to play?

A lot of the people who play do little else than WoW - It's OPENLY life-sucking and in order to really be GREAT at it, you have to spend a whole assload of time on it.

Sure he took the wrong attitude with the "I like real life more than simulated" but the rest of his point is correct.

It's like when I first started playing Gears online. I was a complete noob and knew nothing, had no idea what to do. I got trashed in the game unnecessarily so. It's that kind of elitist attitude that is an embarassment to those that play the game.

If you're going to be awesome at the game, realize there will be others who aren't, and scale down to accept that. Otherwise you're as self-righteous as the other side of the coin.

The point isn't that you're supposed to be awesome, the point is to not be an ass when you're shitty at how you spend your time. It's fine to be a noob, but don't do so and then berate people for spending their time exactly how you are.
