Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there. It's a special day for all of you and I hope you've all been pampered accordingly. :) I had a delicious 3 day weekend. I know its coming to an end as the sun goes down here, but I relish the peace of just being quiet for a few days.
I had hoped to game all weekend. Mass Effect has been my recent obsession. I have spent 40 plus hours scouring plants, killing Geth and chasing down Saren. Fabulous fun game.
And I bloody well finished it Friday night about midnight.
I really have to stop finishing games. It depresses me.
If you haven't had a chance to pick this one up, I encourage you to give it a try. It's similar to Knights of the Old Republic, and those of you that played Kotor will enjoy the feeling of familiarity.
The game has the same good/evil chart that can be found in many games. I always get a giggle out of the fact I seem to light up the good portion fully before the game is finished. I was a paragon. LOL. I had a few points in renegade. I earned these mainly when I was reveling in the snarky conversation options. :) Hey, I can't resist telling someone off every once in a while.
I still haven't finished Fallout 3. I pick it back up every once in a while, but I don't seem to stick with it long.
After I put the manual and disk back in the Mass Effect box and put it on the shelf, I ran a finger over all the other games I have.
Nothing appealed to me. I was just sad. I always am after I get heavily involved in a story and then it is over. It's like saying goodbye to friends and putting them away, never to explore any of the nuances of the friendship again.
I turned on Halo on the Xbox. I don't remember ever having playing through the original. Now I remember why. Halo frustrates me. Lack of bullets, there is no map and the story is there,but its so light I don't feel motivated to go further. I don't care what happens to the Master Chief. I am not even sure what it is he is up to besides killing Covenant creatures.
I suppose this is why I gravitate toward Role Playing Games. I love story. I love getting know the whys, and hows and being a part of the action as the main character.
Mindless shooting is just boring.
Anyways, I am off to watch a Star Trek marathon. I got to see the new Motion Picture on Thursday at one of the local IMAX theaters. Whether you are a trekkie or not, the movie is worth the price of admission.
Nothing else exciting going on here. I gave the puppy a bath. She looked pathetic by the time I was finished. Made me giggle.
