RPGs, saving and ADHD a deadly combination

I have a problem...I have adult ADD. Plain and simple I have issues concentrating on the same task for extended periods and also I have troubles remembering to do little things....like save.

Now...for older school RPGs such as FF7, this did not pose a problem thanks to these little guys


I could just play until I got to the next save point and save before logging off.

Fast forward to today with this awesome new feature that allows you to save at anytime(mostly) during play. A grand feature...if I could remember to do it.

I was playing Mass Effect last night, which is a fucking fantastic game(but Im sure you all know that). But, it has taken me forever to progress in this beast because of one simple thing...I FORGET TO SAVE. I just get going and get into the story and the fighting and completely zone out. So needless to say, I spend a lot of time doing stuff I have already done...

So last night I was playing on Noveria(the snowy wonderland of super awesome fun)...after progressing though Peak 15 and blasting fools like its my job(which it is), for about an hour, I died...only to be put back to where I was an hour before...



I had to put down the controller, take a few deep breaths and then slowly get up and turn off the console. Its not like I can get mad at the game or the console, the only thing I can get mad at is myself for not remembering.

Why oh why must I be stricken with this ailment.   read

My Gaming setup/Television/Living room/whatever else happens in there

So, guess Ill post my gaming area here.

Its kinda slimmed down right now since I recently made a move from Toronto to Vancouver and I couldnt fit my massive amount of consoles and games in my luggage(as much as I like to be naked I need clothes too).

So all I brought with me was my trusty(lies) 360. I bought the TV when I got here along with everything else. I basically started over.

so heres the TV and 360, notice the extra space for the rest of my games once they get shipped out.


here is my couch that I bought for 50 dollars from a used furniture store. Sweet deal but I still dont trust it.


and here is my computer, along with my drums.


So this concludes my episode of MTV cribs...   read
