Mass Effect! Finally!

Another day, another.. Thing, to talk about I guess.

If you've read my previous entries you'll know that I had a test in social studies today, it actually went rather well! Probably not. I think I might have saved myself from that "F". What are you? Stupid? You failed.


...

Yeah I probably didn't do super good, but I'm hoping to at least pass this, that way I have shot.

Since I didn't have any more studies I decided to sit down and play some Mass Effect 3, which I am hoping to finish this week.

When you're not in fast and unforgiving firefights, you actually get to see and hear a lot of small talk, gossip, rumors and some other stuff,. This is the thing that makes this game, and the ones before it, so special. At least to me, since I need a good story in order to enjoy a game. I remember overhearing James and Garrus (human and alien allies) talking about all the different "epic" stuff they had done for the galaxy and in different lines of work. I stayed in the background and watched the discussion unfold, then it stopped, at the time it seemed rather short, so I went about with business.

I came back to the same spot about 30 seconds later just to hear them starting a second part, this made me smile extremely wide (no, seriously, I looked like a fucking moron) and I stayed for this as well. Then when it stopped, I went into another room for about 2 seconds and returned just to hear the last part of the argument.

I know this may sound weird, or right down stupid to some people. But for me, gaming is like watching a movie that you get to interact with, which I sincerely enjoy. Games have made me cry, where movies haven't, they've made me feel more happy than any movie ever have. So for me, gaming isn't just a hobby, it's something I partially do to get away from reality a while, but also to experience the feelings of the character you play.

I'm probably gonna end this here so I don't bore you to death, I just felt like writing this.

Oh, and before I go, would you guys like to see a Mass Effect 3 review coming up here soon? It's all up to you to decide yes or no.

Thanks for reading, I'll see you guys next time!

  1. I agree, Mass Effect is one of those games that you can get really absorbed in. I like how they let you play any style you like, too- sniper, stealth, etc.

    1. Exactly, the options on how you choose to play are endless. That's why I love these games so much!

  2. After playing the first, I really think that it would be wise to jump into the second at some point.
    Possibly after all the poor media from the final game.

    1. In my opinion, a lot of that media is unfair. The ending has been trashed a lot, I haven't seen it yet so I don't know what to expect. You'll however always find flaws in games, ME is not any different.

      I suppose in comparison to the first two, which I have played, Mass Effect 3 seemed a bit... Rushed.

  6. That's exactly the way I feel about games. I love all those subtle details any I can't get enough story. I want to completely submerge myself in it.
