    I know you're joking but that time is also when it becomes the 23rd March in mainland Europe

    I normally aim to be in bed by 11, then up at half 6, so any extension of that means being tired in the morning

    As I've gotten older (nearly 38), I've found I need less sleep so late night gaming is working out better for me these days. Winner!

    Or maybe you just give less of a toss about feeling knackered during the day

    Unless I have a hangover I can't sleep in these days and I'm 34. I tend to naturally wake up at 6ish. I'm definitely more functional with 6/7 hours though, seems to be the sweet spot.

    I used to work a shift cycle whereby I'd have to work from 2000-0400hrs and then have to come back in for midday until 2000hrs again before coming back in the next morning. No point going to sleep, so I'd just pull a 24 hour stint.

    After that, no length of working day or weird shift pattern bothers me.

    I've reached the limit of the trial, part way through a mission it's just locked out.

    Suppose I can wait an hour to carry on...

    Thought about getting the trial of Origin Access, but didn't have time anyway. Though would've loved to get started early tonight. Probably will have a quick bash before bed...(and play Mass Effect too, wheeey)

    Obviously I played it. Stayed up to half 1 but made up for it by skipping the gym and getting up at 8. Spent the usual half an hour creating my character. Got through the first area. Definitely has a familiar feeling. I did find the cut scenes were really sluggish for whatever reason but already engaged in it. It's pretty too, which helps (animations aside).

    I spent a fair while creating my character too

    It's growing on me, once I got to Eos and started mooching about uncovering different things etc I started to get into it more.

    Still not quite sure on the story so far, I'm a Pathfinder right, so what we just show up on these planets where there's already loads of bases set up, and there's some kind of monoliths and we just go with it and solve puzzles and shoot baddies, because story?

    I'm still twitching over whether to pick this up or not. I loved the first three but with all the negative press and BioWare stating that they're going to patch the problems soon, should I wait?

Pretty game just cant wait until it unlocks fully
    The headline of the article was gtx 1060 only gets 30fps @ 1080, which is crazy for a modern game, so badly written, or just crysis like gfx?

    RE bed times, bed at 1230, up at 715.

    Missus has started getting up @ 620 for work though, and it certainly catches up towards the end of a week, so been bedding @ 11 recently @ up at 620.

    Bed earlier than that and I wake up @ 530 raring to go
