Spoiler-Free Thoughts on the End of Mass Effect 3

I beat Mass Effect 3 last night (spoiler free). It was certainly interesting. I had been exposed to so much anti-hype before even starting the game that it was hard not to be worried about the whole thing, but I found the story of the game to be incredibly satisfying throughout.

First off, it was pretty awesome realizing just how deceptively true the initual ME2 teasers actually were.

The citadel went from light to dark while the normandy went from dark to light.

Tali looks awesome. As does the Blood Dragon armor. Continue reading

Ranting While Playing: Mass Effect

Graphics are amazing, but facial shadows can look weird, especially around noses or with certain female hairstyles.

Why is the grenade button Back?

Why isn’t there an actual cover button? Pressing up against cover to use it is awkward. Continue reading
