Sometimes when you are tired, stressed and just need a quick break playing games is the best cure. Today was not one of those days. We borrowed DJ Hero. John played DJ and I played guitar. We played about five our six songs before we just realized 2-player was not fun. LBP has been old faithful the last few days so we decided to play a few downloadable sequences. We counted the minutes until finishing our hour and finished our time tired and restless. The stress of the holidays and sick little ones was not helped by gaming.
Tonight gaming together was not fun. On the bright side we are not trying to decompress in separate spaces then falling asleep apart. We shared our gaming purgatory and instead of staggering slumber we head off to bed together for the first time in many months; a nice bi-product of our hour-long ritual.
