Borderlands. I'd been playing this pretty much non-stop until I got to Mad Moxxi's Underdome, at which point my progress slowed to being almost non-existent.
See, I'm going through it as a single-player. And Mad Moxxi's DLC is definitely not single-player geared. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's damn near impossible to complete in single-player mode.
If you've never played it, Mad Moxxi's Underdome is one long set of arena challenges. To begin with you have to go through 5 rounds, each consisting of 5 waves. Total of 25 waves. If you fail any of the waves, you go back to the beginning of the previous round. Which is harsh if you're on wave 20 and die, because it means you go all the way back to wave 11.
So. After getting incredibly fed up, I finally beat the 25 waves on each of the three different maps that the game puts you through. I beat the third and (I hoped) final map this afternoon. And I was like "Right, let's see if there's anything more interesting after this abomination of tedium and frustration".
The next challenge is to go 20 rounds in each of the three maps. That's 100 waves. Times three, because there's three different maps.
F*ck. You. Gearbox.
Seriously! I can't do that. I physically cannot do that. I don't have the patience, the time, the energy or, most fatally, the slightest bit of interest. I busted my balls to do the five rounds in each map, and now you want me to do four times that? Piss off!
So ignoring the massive brick wall that Gearbox have erected around this particular piece of DLC, I've moved on to the next one, Secret Army of General Knoxx, but I'm getting tired of this one because the maps are so bloody huge it takes forever to get to the next bit of combat. I'm pretty much ready to just give up on this game now, it's proving too much of a hassle to play.
