3 hours? I am bored before games even load these days. If they start with some storytelling bullcrap after all the logos and required patches download I just about wanna rip my hair out.

Agreed, it took way too long to get moving. Not to mention I was confused why I was playing as a British guy. I kept thinking, "I thought the main character was a Native American??"

Now that I've finished ACIII, I'm working on a second playthrough on Skyrim...which probably just means I'm a glutton for punishment considering the stupid amount of time I put into the first go-round.

ACIII also pisses me off that it takes about 15 minutes to load. By the time the game starts, I've drank an entire beer and downed all my snacks.

Haha. I hate that. Then you gotta pause, get up, reload snacks and beer, and get back into the game.

Not to mention the game is extremely glitchy

I love having to fast travel two times between just about each mission too. On each travel, you gotta wait for the load, then you have to move 10 feet once the game comes back on and confirm you really want to enter the new area, then do another fast travel and repeat. It just kills the game immersion experience.

I had some extreme issues with Black Ops 2, kept freezing up on load up. Almost made me not play it; but, they must have patched it because it almost 100% now.

Had the same experience with bop2, was about ready to throw the game out but all good since the patch. Should not have been released like that in my opinion

Tomorrow is a brew day with a lot more. i am bottling 3 gallons of apfelwien and a gallon of mead, transferring a Cabernet into secondary, transferring a dry stout into 5, 1 gallon containers on different things (I love messing with dry stuots), and then I'm brewing two one gallon experimental brews.

Anyway, I'll have black ops 2 in the kitchen with me for waiting and down times all day. I'm off tomorrow and Friday so I decided to get a lot of **** done.
