So we bought Rock Band

and I may never get anything accomplished again.

I've already put off paper revisions, painting, eating, shopping and other domestic chores. I did make it back to work on Monday, so things aren't out of control just yet.

Word of warning:
Tomb Raider II almost cost me my PhD.

Wait...isn't Lancelot already *in* a rock band?

I'm hooked, on all things, the Wii Sports game. I've reach "pro" status in Tennis. Now shooting for "pro" in baseball.

My thesis took a lot, lot longer thanks to various games. Think Vice City was one of the worst culprits. That and one of the Colin McRae Rally games.

I put in roughly 14 hours* playing Lego Star Wars on the Wii this past three day weekend.

*The game actually has a hologram in the cantina which shows your length of time playing. How pathetic is that? I'm only 21% of the way through too.

TR - I'm right there with you on Tomb Raider. That game was evil.

AA - LOL! yes, but he doesn't play drums...

AA's BH - Lancelot lost many hours of sleep over Vice City. Did you ever play the new GTA?

TJ - I've heard the lego star wars is pretty freakin' awesome. I think that we probably spent at least 14h playing rock band this weekend. My hand and back are killing me. :)
So, when you are done playing this game you will know how much time it took to complete it if you use the hologram in the cantina thingie?
