This is like the third time this week I've gone downstairs, turned on the PS2 and the heater (basement heat is off by default), and then sat there with it sitting at the intro screen for hours while I futzed around on my laptop. Oops. Especially since I could do that upstairs and not pay to heat it down here.
* There's an in-game clock. I've effectively played the silly game in roughly real-time.
