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!


I recently finished Fallout 3 on the xbox 360 — Well, actually I accidentally finished it. The main stoyline is actually VERY short. So, not knowing it was the end, due to the shortness I carried on, and to my surprised finished the game, and unfortunately once you finish, you can’t continue playing your character. So, if i want to finish most of the other quests and storylines in fallout 3, I have to load from a previous save file I suppose.

Anyway, after finishing the game, i got a healthy hankerin’ for more post-apocalyptic  funtime! So, I went out and picked up Fallout 1, 2 and Fallout Tactics. Now, i have previously played the first 2 fallout games, although granted, not to completion due to that stupid friggen time limit! However I had never played Fallout Tactics, so naturally thats the one I started playing first.


That’s all I can say — Wow.

I don’t mean wow in the good way either. I meant Wow in the “WTF were they thinking?!” kinda way. The story is horrid, the controls and gameplay COULD have been better. I realise this was a different direction than the previous 2 fallout titles, but c’mon! This game SUCKED! Not just because it was “Different” either! In fact, I love turn based strategy games as much as I do Role play. The X-com games used to rank on the top of my list of best games “EVER!”

Anyway, I was extremely disappointed with tactics, and glad I didn’t pick it up when it first came out. 😦
