Well, I have been playing Mass Effect 2, I got off to a slow start, but recently had some free time and just ripped through this game. Once I got playing, it was like I couldn’t stop! It’s easily one of the best RPGs ever released in my opinion. If you love RPGs and you love sci-fi then you REALLY should check this game series out(Starting with the first one of course).

So, after MANY hours of playing, I finished the game. Granted, I didn’t get the best possible ending, I lost some crew, but that just gives me a reason to play through the game again. However the one where I lost some of my crew, will be the saved game I use when Mass Effect 3 comes out, because unfortunately, thats originally how things played out for me, and I want my shepperd to have to face the consequences of his actions.

In my oppinion the best part of the game is where you take control of joker. I mean, it wasn’t long, and there weren’t any gunfights, but it offered a different view of things, and it was suspenseful! I loved that, and I hope Mass Effect 3 implements more of that when it’s released.

Speaking of Mass Effect 3, I seriously can not wait for this game to come out now! I am drooling at the mouth. The third Mass Effect game will be the final title in the planned Mass Effect trilogy, so anything could happen, all bets are off!

So, now that I have finished Mass Effect 2, what am I going to be doing in terms of gaming? Well, originally I had planned on grabbing Splinter Cell: Conviction, but it got delayed yet AGAIN. Big surprise there right? I swear, I seriously doubt that game will ever see the light of day. The game was due out way back in ’07 and has been getting delayed ever since, so it’s not a huge surprise that they decided once again to push back the release date.

So, with no Splinter Cell game to play, and no Mass Effect to play, most likely once I get my WoW account unhacked I will go back to playing that some, in the meantime, I will most likely play Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and probably the few DLCs for Fallout 3 that I haven’t gotten a chance to play yet. Then of course there’s Second Life!

Squeeze – Tempted

I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
A flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush
New shoes and a case
I said to my reflection
Let’s get out of this place
Past the church and the steeple
The laundry on the hill
The billboards and the buildings
Memories of it still
Keep calling (keep calling) and calling (and calling)
But forget it all
I know I will

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I’m at the car park, the airport
The baggage carousel
The people keep on crowding
I’m wishing I was well
I said it’s no occasion
It’s no story I could tell

At my bedside empty pocket
A foot without a sock
Your body gets much closer
I fumble for the clock
Alarmed by the seduction
I wish it would stop

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

I bought a novel, some perfume
A fortune all for you
But it’s not my conscience
Hating to be untrue
I asked of my reflection
What is there to do?

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
There’s no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Tempted by the truth of another
Tempted and the truth is discovered
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered

Good news every peoples! The Aliens Versus Predator demo was released on the Xbox marketplace. It’s a multiplayer demo, so gives you a good idea on how this title will play.

I have been looking forward to this game for awhile, and anxious to pick it up the day the title is released, so when I saw the demo on the marketplace I did a little dance and got down with my badself. I then sat back down, and proceeded to begin the download. The wait wasn’t long, but it seemed like forever. I sat there with visions of acid blood and thermal vision dancing in my head.

Then, the download was complete and I fired the demo up. Apparently not as many people were as excited about the demo as me, since it took a good 15 mins for me to find a match. Then, a match was found, and the deathmatch begun! All my anticipation, my hopes, my everything totally dashed to pieces! The game played like crap! It looked even worse! I realise it’s a demo, and not based on the final released product, but come on! This stunk royally! It was bad enough to make me decide to NOT get the game when it comes out at least. I can wait a few months til it reaches the bargain bins.

It’s a pity really, because I played and loved both the Alien Vs. Predator games on the PC as well as the Atari Jaguar. Those games, for their time were incredible! I had such high hopes for this! My Predator fanboyishness dreams now totally in the crapper. Hey, at least I have Mass Effect 2 to keep me occupied til the new splinter cell game is released sometime this month! 😀

Yes! Today, I got my grubby little hands on Mass Effect 2 on the Xbox 360! I haven’t played much into it, but so far I am incredibly impressed.That game is incredible, which has a really nifty import feature, that lets you import your character any completed mass effect 1 campaign save games. So, I naturally imported my character, which was a level 45 Soldier. However, just beause you import your old guy, don’t think you are going to be super buff. You aren’t. You get bonus credits and your level increased from level 1 to level 2, but thats about it. So, it’s not a big deal if you don’t import.

Now, my “Sheppard” is the default male sheppard, the reason for this was because when i first started playing the original Mass Effect, I didn’t read the manual, because I am a dude. So, at first I didn’t realise I could customise the character. Then by the time I found out, I was a good ways into the game, and didn’t want to start over. It turned out to be a good thing, because when I went to play the game again, i found the other presets to suck, and couldn’t make a sheppard that looked appealing to me. Although I did make a character that looked an awful lot like Dennis Leary.

After you play a bit through Mass effect 2, you arrive at a point where you can re-customise your character. However, I had grown used to Default Sheppard, and that’s what I decided to stick with. The look fits the voice PERFECTLY, and on top of that, it’s the model that I am used to.

If you haven’t gotten this game yet? You totally need to. Seriously.
