Obviously this has been a long time coming. The Mass Effect series is not just a universe in which three games are set. It is basically one enormous continuing game. Bioware told us from the start that decisions made in the first game would be carrying over to both two and three. So now Mass Effect 3 is finally here. With the expectations of two whole games weighing down on it, Bioware set themselves up to end the series in a spectacular fashion. More than anything in the series, it’s the characters that captivated me. Yes, I care about the fate of the universe, but I care even more so about the fate of Shepard, Tali, Liara, Garrus, Wrex, Grunt, Jack, and all the other squad mates that helped me throughout. Except for James, I didn’t really care what happened to him.
Okay, I suppose I’ll get this out there early, since I know how the first person shooter crowd usually goes. I am bad at Modern Warfare 2. It’s the truth, plain and simple. On XBox Live I am no xXDarkAssassinXx, NoobPwner49, or SniperSaurusRex. Though, come to think of it, that last one it pretty awesome. How would the dinosaur use a sniper rifle with its tiny, ineffectual dino-claws? Also, what would a dinosaur even need to assassinate in the first place? Hmmm. (more…)
