The cutscenes are pretty good, but you don't get a feel for being "The Commander" the way you would watching RED ALERT cutscenes.

Hell, I probably spent more time bless'ed around with the off road tank than I did on the storyline missions in the first one.

Honestly, Eden prime was the lousiest of the missions, because it's essentially the tutorial. You can steal the gear off the redshirt for the replay for some starter cash.

Since I bless'ed despised the 360 controls, I used the medical clinic money glitch, which saves a lot of time. The Fallout 3 money glitch was easier, but operates on the same concept.

And of course, you have to check out the "Mass Effect Gamer Poop" vids on youtube, where video editing makes EVERYONE on the Normandy inappropriate.

From Commander Shepard declaring his undying love for steak, his promises of "We'll bang, OK" to such later memes as "BattleTits", you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't check it out.

Mark Meer - who voiced Commander Shepard, regrets that "We'll bang, OK" is not a canon line.

I hate linking to a scab instead of the original content, but...

Bought a trilogy key from mmoga that was fine in my Origin account. Probably the first time I haven't moaned at the boy for his gaming knowledge.
Using a fat Radeon so the Nvidia fix won't work. I might be able to use my onboard graphics, but I'd have to move the smaller monitor back down and play it on that. Don't really have the Real Estate:



Nice :D poser lol

Sigh.. I remember those heady days of the lockdown.

I'm down to about the last 20% of Spellforce 2: Dragon Wars. It's been a good game to play while I'm off work with arm injuries as it requires virtually no hacking or slashing and burns up time pretty well.

The kids have started telling me to be productive.

I think I have a hole in my foot.

I restarted Oblivion, but I'm stuck in the character creator. I forgot how liberating the restriction in the fallout games is.

I just want to avoid tiny head syndrome or oversized head syndrome. It's almost impossible to tell in the horrible character creator.

I'm seeing a lot of tips online to finish the first dungeon and use the sewer exit as a re-do, but I don't remember having these problems back on the 360.

Glad to see you've been able to squeeze the marrow on Spellforce 2. Those games that you can stretch out, those are the best.

I'm surprised I missed that series first time round as they have my name written all over them. In truth, playing these first 2 are prep for the 3rd installment that came out in 2017 I believe. That has to be good but I am not even looking at gameplay or screenshots yet as I want to savour the moment (or moments before as it were).

Luckily, my client said that she was a little worried about the amount of COVID that was circulating so why don't I take another couple of weeks to recover. Not really "lucky" to have COVID around I know, but one way or another I would have had to go back later this week as contruction isn't really affected and my arms are stuck with the pain while I can't see a specialist so I should have cracked on regardless.

I'm terrified. I've limited my outings to CVS (Drug store, Chemist) and Grocery outlet (damn' food store)

Recently the CVS got moon suited.

I remember a few years back when a drunk managed to punch out power on one side of the town, and we had to go over to the other side to get so much as soda, I felt like that was society breaking down. Walking through my dead half town wearing a headlamp, and thinking "This isn't fallout fun, this is 'The End' ala Morrison.

I mean in my case it was snappy and crappy. We've dealt with worse since. SDG*E like to threaten safety shutdowns since they were held liable for a fire that killed a bunch of people.

As it, it really makes you doubt institutions, at any level.

Like if they won't enforce decency, where the golly are we, specifically.

Sorry for going all doomer in a gaming thread.

I have just killed the big boss and I have really had enough for a while.

Will I still say that in the morning with some time left off work ...
