Got problems with your life freezing and then skipping forward unpredictably like that great episode of Futurama ? No problem.

Eve Online. As much as I love it, I can't play it for more than a few days before getting distracted like a squirrel that's somehow gained control of a spaceship and been asked to forge a new life among the stars. But I do love space. Hmmm, quite the dilemma. Maybe I'll just go back to Star Wars: The Old Republic. What are you playing at the moment?
