What is fatigue? [Mar. 28th, 2014|12:41 pm]
So, what does "I am frequently fatigued" mean?

Well, here's an example.

I like computer and console games - but I haven't played a lot.

Fatigue-wise, I'm getting a lot better. A *lot* better.

How can I say this?

Well, I ordered a PS3 60gb - the kind with PS2 back-compatibility. It arrived today.

I spent *10 minutes* unboxing it, connecting it, turning it on, running through the setup, and then testing it.

When I'm fatigued? It might still be in a corner of the room until I have energy to deal with it. It might still be in its box a week later. I might have the occasional tug of "oh, cool, I actually own one of those things I drooled about several years back when they came out", and never actually find a place to hook it up to my TV.

I don't know if I'm actually going to *use* it. But it's pretty surprising that I spent those ten minutes doing something and actually feeling kind of good while I did it.

More a comment on PS3-having than fatigue... I strongly recommend getting a PS+ membership. For $50 yearly it gives you access to several free games per month, for the PS3, PS4, and Vita -- and once you've "purchased" the freebie it's yours for as long as you subscribe to PS+. And if you lapse and rejoin, you'll get all the games back again. Also, you can get the PS4/Vita games even if you don't have the relevant systems and they'll be waiting for you when/if you ever do pick up a new console!

Currently available free PS+ titles for PS3 are:

Thomas Was Alone
Lone Survivor
Remember Me
Payday 2
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Bioshock Infinite
Borderlands 2
Uncharted 3
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Little Big Planet Karting

And Coming Soon: Arkham City

Heh. More on fatigue - I'm actually seriously considering this. Maybe I *am* getting better.

First I, um, had started watching the Avengers cartoon on NetFlix, which is what triggered all of this, and I have a pressing need to play through Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2.

(Which is another sign things are getting better. That interest in Thing1 made me interested in Thing2. By which I mean, certain specific things - I don't mean those characters from The Cat In The Hat.)
