    To be honest I only just downloaded the first Portal and I'm still not finished, chances of me spoiling anyone are fuck all to none.

    I don't have motion sickness issues in real life but I can't even watch other people play Portal without getting seasick, or, I guess throughthefloorsick. so I am spoilerfree, for the most part.

    What about playing Portal yourself, tape? I don't have motion sickness issues with trains/planes/automobiles or FPSes .... but watching someone else play an FPS always gives me terrible motion sickness.

    So it's been 3 weeks since my girlfriend dumped me after 3 years of relationship and almost a year living together, and she's already with someone else -- someone who was a mutual friend.

    I know it's life and this shit happens and I'll get over it and it was only my first girlfriend... But good God, it hurts as hell and it's tough to get over her. I'm stuck between a sentiment of rage and infinite sadness.

    I've removed myself from Facebook for a while, t'was an easier solution for the moment.

    I'm just really looking forward to the day I'll get over her and stop being stuck in nostalgia and thinking about the fact that we'll never have more moments together like we used to. It's the sucky phase of "Everything reminds me of her". It was already tough engaging in the process of getting over her, it's kind of even harder to do knowing that a person I tought was my friend has now taken my place at her side.

    "C'est la vie", I know. But it's just happening so fucking fast I have difficulty right now adjusting to all this shit.

    oh no, I tried it and the situation, it was not a good one. My boyfriend thought it would be a great game for me because I love puzzles, schizophrenic robots, and fucked up moral quandary, and also false promises of cake. so my inability to even spectate for that game is disappoint. I love to watch cinematic fps games, tf2 is one of my favorites, and I watch that more than I play it. I've never played more than a few moments of Left 4 Dead, I suck at managing the controls or something, but I've watched most of the campaigns for 1 and 2. I am weird, I know. :D

    52, one thing I might suggest is to find a new hobby, sport or activity that you haven't done or always wanted to do, and dive into it. The challenge might help you clear your mind and prioritize. :)

    That's rough mate, and it'll hurt you for a while, but time heals all.

    To your defense, it sounds like the mutual friend that she's currently dating could be her safety choice, or the rebound relationship. She might go out with him for a while before moving on, so he's not exactly in the best position either. If this is true she might not ever see him in the same light as she did with you, especially after 3 years.

    I can't wait to have the energy to do something challenging. I'm just so tired of thinking about her and what we had. Haven't had a good night of sleep in 3 weeks.

    I would have liked to move past this as fast as her. I think that's what annoys me the most (but that's just me being selfish I guess).

    Thanks for the advices though. I'll try to do something about it.

    Man, I hate people who spoil things. Years ago in college, there was this fat, obnoxious know it all that was way ahead of me in Metal Gear Solid 3. He said...or rather yelled:
    "Tatanya and Eva are the same! She's the spy, I already got to that part"

    I was so upset at him, when I told him not to spoil it he replied "Well, it was obvious wasn't it? I mean, I figured it out long before they told me" As if indirectly calling me stupid somehow made it better.

    I wish. Not that I wish her to be sad or anything, but they seemed pretty close for the last month. She told me it was not premeditated, that she did not left me because of that. I remember when we were still together that I kept joking about it. It annoyed me a bit, but she was always like: "Don't be jealous of him, I wouldn't go out with him if we were not together". And I believed her.

    So since yesterday, I keep thinking about them and I'm like: "What the fuck, man? What the hell just happened here?". Like (even if it doesn't make sense) it was a train that I sort of knew was coming, didn't believe it, and realized only at the last second that it would hit me.

    Anyway, what can I do about it know except trying to get past it? I just know that I don't want to see either of them right now.

    Ah, thank you! That is very kind o' ye, sir Napp...but eeeeeeh even though I've heard it's a short game to play through, I am not in the proper mental space to play a new game right now. I think I'm enjoying being lazy and once in awhile opening up Minecraft. I will play Portal eventually though! :P

    Small consolation: at least I keep the apartment. Hooray, yeah... will have to rearrange everything so nothing reminds me of her. And in like 5-6 months, I'll be able to move on even more.

    And with that I'll close the chapter of my break-up to stop bumming you all with that.

    I've downloaded the first title like a year ago, have it on the 360 too, and never played it. I don't know why.

    I just finished Portal 1 this morning, I wish there were more games this short and this awesome.
    I so wish I had time to play dragon age 2 though, being a parent is really rough on your available game time.
    and god; Skyrim is out later this year, never going to get to play that, I'll just buy it and look at the box.
