Mass Effect (in Off-topic)

I'm hopelessly addicted.

Better than/As good as KotOR?

Mem December 7 2007 12:09 PM EST

Better. A million times more massive. Bioware has really outdone themselves.

Good thing I don't have a X-box 360 or a HD TV. Because I would spend hours and hours and hours and hours and hours playing that game... it looks really awesome.

Hey mem, does the game use a lot of small fonts that would be impossible to read on a regular TV (non-HD)?

Mem December 7 2007 1:04 PM EST

'Fex, I'm playing on my standard def television, and while the font is certainly small, it's not impossible to read.

I got an email from the partner of an old friend recently. She's getting annoyed because he won't stop playing. She got me to phone him just to get him off the X-Box so that she could watch a film!

From what I've seen of it, it might just persuade me to buy an X-Box.

I've heard it being described as an "elevator-riding game". =P


To be honest I'd be playing it myself right now if my computer didn't suck so hard...

Aargh [Closer to the Stars] December 7 2007 2:02 PM EST

And by "right now" I mean "as soon as it's out on PC", because IIRC it's only on Xbox at the moment.

I was planning to get a 360 to play Mass Effect but after hearing the reactions of my friends (loooong load times) I'm waiting for it to come out on PC where presumably it will use the hdd as a cache.

Nice....now I have this + Assassin's Creed as pushers for me to get an Xbox360, even though I can't really afford one...

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] December 7 2007 2:31 PM EST

Well I did enjoy Impossible Mission 2

Mem December 7 2007 4:55 PM EST

The load times may be long compared to other 360 games, but they're no where near long enough to fret over. Certainly no where near a Playstation system...

beer always wins mem, nice work.

Mem December 8 2007 5:02 AM EST

Man, beer sure won tonight. I couldn't even focus on the game I was playing, and yet I was doing alright... Rock Band and drunk = not usually a good combination. Fun times, though.
