Another weekend, another couple days to spend on my Dark Souls obsession. As I grind my way through new game+, I find myself marveling at just how long this game is (again).

I'm in the last 20% of the game, now with a play time of some 115 hours. I thought I'd be done for the second time and moving onto my third—and closer to that Platinum trophy—by now. Fortunately, there's still a lot of Dark Souls to keep me interested in this grueling journey.

I might sneak out to a movie theater to see just how bad The Thing is in between enjoying the thrills of paperwork. I also plan on playing some Driver: San Francisco this weekend and maybe an iPhone game or two. Any recommendations, readers?
