Mass Effect

I thought id mention that I enjoyed the game “Mass Effect”, a combination of (fairly weak) puzzles, combat and character interaction. I think some TR fans might enjoy it. The character interaction is a lot better than in TR and you can choose from a selection of responses. You can be nice to people or can be nasty to get your way – it’s an interesting choice.

Also, the graphics are superb. I think the TR engine needs a bit of a revamp (in comparison), there’s not much graphical improvement (if any) since last year, although I do like the new moves.

There was a discussion in another thread about the look of Lara and male/female hero character issues. In ME, you can build your own character; male or female and then customise him/her. Only the head & face though, not the full body. Your created look plays out in all the cut scenes and game play, it’s awesome. Also, ME tackles some mature issues which I’m glad to see make it into games at last.

Anyway, here’s some pics:















Out of interest, my first playthrough was with the dark haired female character, then the second time, the blonde whom I made deliberately a bit scary with purple lips and white eyebrows. However, after a while I grew to like her because of the no-bullshit style of play I lead with her responses.

There's some great levels too. :-)

I thought Mass Effect (1-3) was very good too ! The quality of the game noticeably gets much better as you go through the trilogy, & although I wasn't initially a fan of the game when I first tried it out, I was basically addicted to it after a few hours (& once I got the hang of it) ! A great storyline, great battle scenarios, & excellent graphics make this a must buy - if you haven't played it yet...Beware though, there was a bit of a ruckus about the ending...

I still have one of the games - not sure if II or III - resting on my PS3, waiting to be played (it was one of the games that was free for Plus members). I would like to play the series, but then I first have to purchase I and I still have a few other games to play before I get new ones. Need more time. [hehe]

Ah yes, the bane of the Video Games enthusiast - so many good games out there to play :-D ...but not enough time to play / complete them all :( ...Hmm, that reminds me, I still need to complete Bioshock Infinite, Resident Evil 5, Borderlands 2... :O [hehe] ...
