    Hilarious. It works this way for me too. I have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as a quick one hour session. There is only an undefined amount of time that will only be complete when you suddenly realize that you will be in trouble with the wife for staying up too late. Normally, I can't get on until around 10pm, which makes midnight roll around mighty quickly. Typically I will look at the clock and it is around 11pm so I will think to myself "OK time to start winding down." Then one of two things happens:

    1. I lose a PVP match or to a boss, or to a random mob. I don't want to end on a bad note/lose my bloodstain. So one more PVP match/run and get the bloodstain.

    2. I win a PVP match or beat a boss. I don't want to waste the momentum I have creted. So one more PVP match/advance just a little bit more in PVE.

    Lather, wash, rinse, repeat. Look at clock. What happened to the last hour?

    I guess they do warn us that time in Lordan is distorted...

    I forget to eat sometimes especailly on long winded playthroughs during weekends. I find myself eating at odd hrs of the day or @ 2 in the morning for example. My roomate is scared to pick up the game b/c of this...

    I went to bed at 6 am and woke up at 8:45... I finished playing Mass Effect 1 at 4 am and thought two hours of dark souls wouldn't hurt happy Coffee and an energy drink and I feel great! Can't wait to do it all over again.

    This game really does steal your free time. I think a big part of it is that you cant pause. It forces you to create time to play the game with no interruptions. Plus obviously how amazing and addictive it is silly
