Do not want: “One of the company’s newest hopefuls in the arena is Mass Effect. Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise from Electronic Arts.” …God help us all. I’ve always smugly watched other people’s favorite video game franchises crash and burn when they’re brought to the big screen; but I never thought it would happen to me. Clearly, this is a judgement upon my sins.
PS: Yes, Bioware is dead to me, too. It still pains me to see this.
It’s satisfyingly clicky, at least: I’m not exactly sure if it’s improved my typing speed or anything, but there’s definitely a nostalgia value to it. Whether or not this gets blown up the second I try to play Mass Effect on it tonight remains to be seen. Because it’s definitely smaller than my previous keyboard. I mean, the keys are the same size and everything, but it’s also a bit more compact and this keyboard doesn’t have one of those number pads on it that I never used anyway which is why I didn’t buy a more expensive one. Gonna be interesting to adapt to, maybe.
PS: Short interruption there because my wife was going to bed. She also gave me an early birthday present so that I can wear it tomorrow: a Mass Effect N7 t-shirt. I am a fortunate man.
Unless you want to hear about how I’m ready to let that turian dude get exiled because he was engaging in conduct unbecoming in a turian. Because I’m absolutely ready to do that. When it comes to the Mass Effect universe, I have like zero tolerance for turians who let the species down. With great badassery comes great responsibility, and when your iconic figure is Garrus, well.
Sorry, yeah, this is mostly what’s taken over my brain. You all know how that goes.
Ach, who am I kidding? I’m pumping myself up for midnight. Not going to play it all night, though. Just enough to confirm that the game is up and running. In the meantime, here’s some ridiculously good fan Mass Effect music.
