    This game is really beginning to f***-me-over! Time to scale it back a bit, and start living more in the real World. 🇳🇴

    Five hours sleep...that's plenty! Sounds like you've got your gaming habits well under control!

    A good breakfast and a hearty dose of caffeine and you'll be good to go!

    Real World? I'm fairly certain Dark Souls is just as, if not more so, real then dreaming. So stay away from sleep and play more DkS.

    Trust me Gaz, I know...I'm currently in my last hour of a 12 hour night shift, and I'm running on 5 hours sleep, which is about my average!

    Listen to Fed, he speaks words of wisdom!

    Gaz, here is another fun thought to help you out. Every once in a while look at the hours you have logged in the game and divide by 40 (or whatever you average per week for work) to see how many equivalent work weeks you have invested. It may show you that you have basically taken on a second job that you don't get paid for. That Sucks. big grin

    No doubt, but at least I enjoy working my way through DkS, which is a lot more than can be said for what I am doing at this moment in time! lol

    I get to sleep 5 hours as well. Which is just fine. The only reasson I sleep 5 hours is because I impose myself to quit playing at certain time.
    If not I would be sleeping less hours per day.
    And when I'm at work, I' m only thinking about going back to my real world in Lordran...
    Since DkS came out, my life changed. And I love it.

    And you say Gaz... I really enjoy working on my builds too.
    My real job with real persons can get really annoying sometimes that I thank god I'm being paid for that.

    I hopped on last night at about 8pm....you know, one of them "I will just have an hour or so" type sessions....next thing, -blam!- it's 1.30am, PvP'ing in Undead Burg had seen normal space time continuum get all squished....

    ...normally I get up about 6.30am with daughter 2, but this morning she thought she'd move the goalposts and do a 4am start :pale: 2.5 hours sleep later and I'm in a foul mood at work today!! :evil:

    Still, won't stop me having a sneaky hour or so tonight...

    This is what I do all the time! Then my wife yells when she wants to do something and I say "sorry bed time!"

    Haha, too true. Or, when she's making me watch some naff TV programmes involving some celebrities I've never heard of, I fall asleep about 9pm on the sofa, and she goes mental!! "You wouldn't be falling asleep if you were off playing Dark Souls" - haha!!

    Well having responsabilities kind of sucks too. I'm not married nor have any kids, but I have a lot of bills to pay including my rent.
    Sometimes I'm having so much fun that I think to myself "I don't want to go to work tomorrow. I want to keep storming Lordran twisted "
    But then is this other voice telling me: "Shut it down and go to sleep"
    And I'm like: Ok, ok... One more summon and that's it :roll: "
