Blog a Day 48of365: Gloating

I’m getting increasingly sleep deprived. I’ve had a cough for about 3 weeks now but it’s (hopefully) reaching its peak now which means all week I’ve had hardly any sleep because I wake myself up with terrible coughing which would make a 50 a day smoker proud. Assuming smokers are proud of their coughs, which I doubt they actually are.

It’s amazing how quickly it runs you down.

Fortunately my day was improved a teensy bit by the arrival of Heavy Rain. A game I’ve been looking forward to for far too long thanks to loving Fahrenheit. Best of all it hasn’t disappointed me yet! The only thing that does disappoint me is the fact that I still need to eat, drink and sleep otherwise it’s all I’d be doing. I’m also rather excited because this is the earliest I’ve ever had a game to review. I’ve had a few games arrive 4-5 days beforehand and plenty arrive for release day, but a full 10 days beforehand? Excellent 🙂

I’ve also got the pesky matter of getting on with finishing Bioshock 2. Ah it’s such a hard life.

Now if only I could earn a bit more money doing this, working life would be grand.

On a non-gloating note: Ugh my eyes ache and I have to get up early to be tortured…I mean go to hydrotherapy.

    Early reviewing is a blessing and a curse combined. On the one hand, you get loads of time to spend with the game. On the other, you can’t tell anyone if you’re embargoed! Which, with HR, I assume you’re not.

    With Call of Pripyat, I had three weeks of agony, wanting to tell everyone in the world about the thing that just happened, but forbidden from doing so.

    That would drive me insane!
    It’s nice to have plenty of time with it though, especially with the amount of endings rumoured to be available 🙂
    Normally it’s an awkward balancing act of trying to play a game quickly while still attempting to experience it in the same way as an ‘average’ person who can play a game over a week or two, if not longer.

    Sorry your cough is taking so long to go. They really can be exhausting, can’t they?

    Hurrah for having Heavy Rain to play though! Can’t wait to see it.
