...I'm always the last one to jump on the band wagon.
I must have gotten Mass Effect when it first came out. I had read about it in a magazine (prob EGM or OXM) and it seemed pretty cool so i asked for it for my birthday or christmas and my grandparents got it for me.
I played it probably twice and was frustrated. I hadn't really played to many RPGs at that time and that was my first attempt at a shooting RPG.
I sucked Krogan balls, fo realz. So I put it aside and didn't pick it up for years.
Now, in that time I discovered the joys of Bioshock, which utilizes some RPG elements, and then Fallout which is straight up dope yo...or rather, it's an fps rpg. I tell you, I played the shit out of those games.
So now, with both Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas under my belt and a bit of time before I can borrow LA Noire from a friend, I decided to retry Mass Effect.
I am loving it! And hating myself for neglecting it until now! I have a long way to go before ME 3 comes out to get caught up.
In the meantime, I'll be saving the galaxy from Saren, romancing Kaidon, hugging Wrex and leveling up!
Borrowed L.A. Noire last Friday, finished it three days ago. It was so much like a film noir I was salivating. Beautiful.
And I became reeeaaaalllly attached to Cole
