[GW2] Cabin Fever

Copied from Old Faithful:

Cabin fever is an idiomatic term for a claustrophobic reaction that takes place when a person or group is isolated and/or shut in a small space, with nothing to do, for an extended period (as in a simple country vacation cottage during a long rain or snow). Symptoms include restlessness, irritability, paranoia, irrational frustration with everyday objects, forgetfulness, laughter, excessive sleeping, distrust of anyone they are with, and an urge to go outside even in the rain, snow or dark.”

The winds have certainly died down. Although, we did receive the slightest breeze last week, there hasn’t more than a gust since asura week mid September. We are floating a little listlessly in open water; lips cracked and throats dry, a glazed look in our eye as if we would happily wring the cabin boys neck if it meant a stiff westerly wind. It’s an uncomfortable position for a blogger.

Quarter 2 next year is looking further and further away the closer it gets. That’s assuming that Q2 is a good estimate for the release, I mean, we can’t be sure and ANet are as zip-lipped as ever on the matter (does anyone else think a “when it’s ready” t-shirt, possibly emblazoned with the ANet logo and an angry looking MKerstein face, would sell rather well?).

I’m certainly feeling restless; flitting between FIFA12, Black Ops, Magicka, BF3 and Guild Wars – unable to settle on a game for any extended period. I worry that even Skyrim won’t hold me down, not because it won’t be a good game, but because my anticipation for the coming storm will have me constantly looking to the horizon.

Ps. Then again, if Skyrim doesn’t hold me there’s always Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Batman: Arkham City, Modern Warfare 3, and Saints Row 3…

  1. Preaching to the choir on the GW2 issue... it feels like we have so far to go yet.

    I have to object a little bit on the "cabin fever" description however, as most of those symptoms sound like just standard operating procedure / daily faire to me...

    I've also played a bit of Magicka again recently.  That game is ridiculously cute, and has some really fun game mechanics.  Looking forward to downloading FireFall in the very near future and hoping it will occupy some time for me also.
