Hello my lovelies!! *BEWARE OF MASS EFFECT 2 SPOILERS*
As you may have noticed, I dropped off the face off the planet for a week or so.
So, I was in a friends wedding (which was all hectic on it’s own preparing for) but, as luck would have it the next day I was sick. Since then, I have mostly been moping around in bed feeling sorry for myself with Pneumonia and the relative goodness of a chest infection. Uuuuurgh.
Literally, stuck in bed for a number of days with not too much energy. So, how did I keep myself amused? With the Halloween STEAM sale of course.
Ehem. Maybe I should not be left to my own devices sometimes.
As a side note, I have no idea what Painkiller is, nor do I remember selecting it – but hey, there is it.
So I started playing Mass Effect 2. This is a game my cousin has been insisting I try as it is (in her words) “omfgrjuih34r5jkfhri34 epicz”.
It’s not a bad game, and it has a relatively interesting story. You start as this chick (I’m playing as Femshep) that she’s proverbially brought back from the dead to do the bidding of some group that no body apparently likes.
Fast-forward a bit and my mission is to recruit a bunch of people in to my ‘crew’.
This chick. HAH, she’s basically my own personal hooker with a gun.
Dudes name is Archangel. Why though is actually beyond me as once you see his face, it’s not heaven you assumed he dropped from.
And Jack. She’s all hardcore and dangerous and wearing like….ropes to cover her nips.
I suppose living a few months in a stasis tube doesn’t leave for a lot of time to go clothes shopping.
So I head off on these missions in this nightclub, and of course what is the first thing a player should do when presented with digital strippers? Spend all the gold on a lap dance.
If I’d seen this kids face first, I might have kept my money.
And Jacks all…
…You’re doing it wrong.
As much as I am enjoying this game, I must admit the cut-scenes are a bit excessive. Even for me. I feel more like I’m watching a movie that I occasionally participate in, than I am participating in a story with occasional movie.
Other than this, I have been working little bits on WHAT WAS my Rotten Harvest competition entry – but due to getting sick never got her completed in time.
Photos of her next!!
Look forward to catching up on everyones posts! 🙂
