Damn you, Jeff Gerstmann! And you too, Star Trek Online!

   0
Surely you wonder why I wish the wrath of a thousand suns upon Mr. Gerstmann. I first direct you to this piece. It's short, read it through. If you like, you may also visit Giant Bomb's "Set Phasers to Fun" video series.

Now, thanks to that, I'm having to consider it seriously, myself. I wish you hadn't made me think about it, Jeff.

Oh Jesus Christ. Right now I'm looking at a list of upcoming releases, separating them into buy/rent/wait-for-Steam-sale columns. Checking my bills and seeing if my budget is in order. This sort of crap is why the terms "disposable income" and "impulse purchasing" were invented. Or should I say, full impulse purchasing?!

Anything else I write here about the process of talking myself out of it will be pointless, merely a copy-paste of Jeff's writeup.

It's weird that I'd never have considered this option for any other game, not on my own or without considerable pressure. That is how thoroughly the appeal of Star Trekhas compromised my judgment. To really go into why that is would read like more pale justification.

I've got nine days to decide. In the meantime I'll continue to play the beta, almost hoping it will somehow stop trying to appeal me. I'll put up this list of things with the potential to dissuade me from making this insane decision:

1. Doing my taxes
2. Checking on my health insurance
3. Final Fantasy XIV
4. Taking a deep breath.

Also, have these pictures of someone personifying the ships from the new movie.
