5 Fandom Friday: Things I’ve Bought But Haven’t Read/Played/Watched Yet

I initially had a hard time thinking of 5 things that I had purchased, but still hadn’t gotten around to reading/playing/watching.  Of course, once the superficial search was over, I realized I have a bit of these hiding in the recesses of my mind & shelves.  Without further ado…

  1. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeros (PS4)
    I have been a fan of the Metal Gear series for a better part of my life.  I’m pretty sure my sniper preference has something to do with the sneaking this game promotes.  I bought this as one of the first games when I bought myself the PS4 for my birthday … back in September 2014.  Still haven’t even loaded it, I’m ashamed to admit.  I got sucked into Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag & then Destiny.  All of that, plus work, means I haven’t been in the needed headspace to embark in the symphony of destruction that is Metal Gear Solid.  I have high hopes for the springtime!
  2. Orphan Black (TV)
    Season 1 is sitting in my Amazon Prime queue, taunting me.  I’ve seen the same episode at least 5 different times, but still haven’t seen the entire season.  The episode that seems to be the only one that airs on TV when I seem to catch it is the on with the club where the do human “upgrades”.  I really liked the flow of the show & am amazed at Tatiana Maslany’s acting ability.  I have a long trip coming up, so I should try & download the season in order to watch them on the plane or at the airport.
  3. Dorothy Must Die (Book)
    I heard about this book last year & bought it from the Kindle store … also back in September 2014.  I guess the birthday rush got to me.  I don’t know what to say; I can also use this as a much needed distraction during long airport waits during my upcoming trip.
  4. FIFA 15 (PS4)
    I wrote about my hesitation in playing FIFA games in the past in a previous post, but one of my good friends is all about this game & just got a PS4.  I downloaded the demo to see if we could play online together.  I must confess that I haven’t loaded it yet.  The idea of this game still stresses me out.
  5. Yes Please (Book)
    This book by Amy Peohler has been on my mind as a book I want to read for a very long time & yet I don’t know why I haven’t actually gotten around to reading it.  Again, it sits on my digital bookshelf awaiting my attention. I love Amy Peohler.  I need to make a point of remembering to read this when I get some free time, instead of remembering I want to read it when I am absolutely swamped (classic!).

So, that is that.  I’ve revealed my procrastination to the interwebs.
