So, I had a minor freak-out tonight (not the bad kind).

My wife and I went to the movies tonight to go see the BBC special on Vikings (because SHUT UP). So I go to use the bathroom before the show actually starts*, and as I’m walking into the actual theater itself I hear the music starting. So I begin to walk.

And then I begin to run, because they played this. As God is my witness, they played this. As the intro to the program.

…Except that nobody else noticed this, apparently. I find it difficult to believe that nobody else would have noticed this.

“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…)
