The only thing you forgot was the Depends(adult diapers), it may be a bit embarrassing but then you won't have to leave the couch, chair or bed unless you realize it wasn't a fart💩😨 from all that White Castle you had.
Thankfully I live by myself and can just order out without having to worry about work. I just schedule my chemo treatments the week before and after, so I have at least one week of no distractions. When Spider-Man comes out I'll be hermited till RDR2, so I might not be seen from September till the following year, lol.
Ensure that my bowels are completely drained, all the comfiest pillows are fluffed, that reminders are put around to cheer me through the week before, and if possible that the home screen theme is changed in accordance with the game.
Make sure you have the console with you when you get your copy. I won’t say which game it was, but a friend of mine and I pre ordered the same game but for different consoles. I was in Knoxville and I did not own my respective console as this was a time my brothers and I shared. So I had a very generous friend who let me play his copy on his console. Thank you so much Bruce!!
I can relate. A problem I might experience for my next anticipated game release: Here where we live, Murphy's Law kicks in and we have stupid, random, bloody annoying power outages that last for half a bloody day which ruins the chance of completing any pre-loading games. Yes, that means when our power comes back on, I see the dreaded "17 hours remaining" message (internet will likely also decide to have one of those slow days when it's NOT supposed to).
Ironically, this is the second time I'm typing this comment. Power went off this morning before I could complete it.
Doesn't really apply anymore, but I would go out and get a brand new memory card JUST for that game. If there were specialized/custom cards for the game, even better. Didn't want to have to delete my FFXII saves to make room for panic saves.
If you live with anybody, you start establishing rules for launch day about a week beforehand. You need to let everybody know what you'll be doing, where you'll be doing it, and not to bother you under any circumstances on release day because the only thing worse than having to wait for a download to finish is knowing that the download is ready, but you still can't play because of someone else. You've been working hard and have been waiting for years, possibly decades, for this day to come, all of your friends and family can wait a day.
I can't like this episode enough. I fell into the trap of announcing leave to the family beforehand and plans were made for me to go shopping on release morning :( When I finally got home, the servers were so busy that I couldn't get a session so I just gave up. I'll not rush a launch day again.
Stock up on junk food, sweets and a big bottle of Dr pepper (or whatever your choice of fizzy is) then binge eat and drink yourself into oblivion as you meld into your chair playing the current best game ever! I love my gaming rituals
