“Reignite.”

It may shock some of you to hear that I’m STILL playing Skyrim. It’s not my fault: the fans keep putting out good mods. The one I’m using now even addresses a major flaw in the game: even after you join the Bard’s College you can’t actually, you know, be a bard. This mod fixes that: your character can now play about five or so musical instruments, and – we’re getting towards the point now, I swear – play a bunch of fan-made Skyrim-themed songs.

Oh, yes, this is so totally a thing. But this isn’t a Skyrim-themed song: it’s a Mass Effect-themed song, which made me straighten up in my chair when my Dragonborn started singing it in an inn. (more…)

Just played “The Stanley Parable” demo.

If you have Steam, you may want to check it out. It’s kind of… esoteric, but not in an occult way. I think that I will be buying the game, despite the fact that it looks like it’s about as far away from Mass Effect or Skyrim as a game can get.

“I love you, Grunt.”

I can’t believe that I haven’t linked to this yet.  I’m Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite bit from Citadel:

Mind you, my Shepard has a different haircut.

Huh. Something in Mass Effect 3 that I *haven’t* seen before.

Also: I’ll be damned.

Conrad-verner

Turns out that Conrad Verner was useful after all.  Sure, only one point and everything… but, hey: that’s one more War Asset point than, say, I would have contributed.

…I’m going to end up buying this, huh?

And they’re going to make a video game starring the character, I’ll bet.

It’s pretty much inevitable at this point.

So. Do I want to start all over again?

…Which is to say: start at Mass Effect, play through; then play through all the rest until I hit Mass Effect 3 and the ending? The Mass Effect Trilogy is almost weirdly inspirational in its mere existence, although part of it may be simply because my previous favored ME2/3 Shepard has a small error in her backstory (she’s not Spaceborn, which may translate into a small dollop of extra pain in ME3).

But that’s a lot of free time.

You know, I’m pretty sure that I’d watch this.

Hey! Mass Effect 3 Anime!

Works for me.  Stars James Vega, which is a character who I liked a good deal more than a lot of people out there did, apparently.

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost.  Out… 12/28/2012, dagnabbit.

So, this is what *my* wife got ME as an early Father’s Day present.

Mass Effect N7 cufflinks.

What is your wife getting you?

PS: Hell yes I’m going to wear them to political events.

Let me solve Bioware’s two problems for it.

OK, so Bioware has two ‘problems.’

  1. There will be no more Dragon Age 2 DLC.  This is a problem.
  2. Many people don’t like the Mass Effect 3 ending.  I do not consider this a problem, but never mind that right now.

So… the answer is simple, is it not? (more…)

OK, Bioware, I understand that sh*t has gotten real…

…in ME3. I’m down with that. And I am down with the fact that people are going to die in this game whether I like it or not. I am. I am likewise down with the fact that some of the people who die are people that I don’t want to die. I even understand that after this game the story of Commander Shepard will officially have been told, so there’s no thematic reason to keep some NPCs around, either.

BUT YOU DID NOT HAVE TO JUST GO OUT AND KILL FIVE NPCS THAT I WAS FOND OF IN QUICK SUCCESSION, DAMN YOUR EYES.

That was just cruel. Especially the first one; because it was ultimately (if inadvertently) MY fault why that asari girl was crying, you know.

PS: This game rocks on toast.
