I’m lying on my sofa playing Infinite Undiscovery right now. Having accidentally saved over my 27 hour game on Easy difficulty with a new game on Normal, I’ve decided to dedicate my time to Normal difficulty now that I know how it plays. Excellent game. I’m discovering more and more as I get deeper into it that I never found last time. Little character pieces, the colour of the heroine’s underwear (revealed in a sequence between her and the main character) and the excellent item creation system which allows much earlier access to weapons and armour than the story does. By the time I was five hours in I already had better armour than I could buy in the game I saved over.
I’ve had toothache for the past couple of days. It’s not actually all that bad but it’s got me scared. Last time I had toothache it took several years before I could find a dentist that would take me on, during which time I’d developed an infection underneath one of my teeth, at the root. I had to have the tooth pulled and it had been so long before I’d managed to get it treated that the tooth had rotted inside. As he was pulling it, it crumbled leaving just the nerve which he had to use to pull it out. I’ve had a lot of damage done to my body over the years but that was the single most painful experience of my life. So yeah, having just moved to a new town, I’m a bit worried that this toothache is the start of something like that again. It’ll get sorted eventually, but for now it’s just hard to shake the feeling.
So anyway, game and pain. That’s why I haven’t really been actively commenting as much as I usually do. We’re only just getting our lives back on track after I was laid up for a couple of weeks with that awful unshakable, choking cough that was going round. I feel so sorry for Kim having to look after me when I’m like that. I rarely get ill with the little things so I’m not really used to it. I guess I’m like a child with an illness when I do come down with these things as I don’t know what to do. It must be really annoying for her.
