Project Euler

Over the last few months I have been solving programming problems on Project Euler. I currently have solved 140 out of 373 problems. Since I have been solving the problems in order of increasing difficulty, my progress will probably slow down now that I have finished solving all of the easy problems. There is a great range in the difficulty of the problems - there are probably some problems that I couldn't solve even if I spent weeks working on them. If you have a Project Euler account, feel free to add me as a friend: 13166529170291_2172f964a0c5e4a2e5a4d6e690c97cb8

Game Playtime

Today I beat The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It was an amazing game - better than The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in my opinion. I noticed at the end of the game that my total playtime was recorded as 41 hours. Out of curiosity, I have gone through some of my save files from other games and compiled a list of how long it took me to beat each game. Unfortunately the game that I probably spent the most time playing, Baldur's Gate II, doesn't record total playtime.

Title Playtime (rounded to the nearest hour)
Dark Souls 57
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 41
Demon's Souls 40
Valkyria Chronicles 24
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 21
Red Dead Redemption 15
Mass Effect 2 15
Heavy Rain 14
Dead Space 11
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 11
Super Smash Bros. Brawl 10
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition 5
