Not that I don't love Mass Effect 1/2, but Mass Alex is probably the weakest title with the worst wordplay of any series they've come up with. I hope people never stop offering better titles to them until the series is done just to mildly get under Alex's skin.
I do believe his resistance is because he stated he wants the name of the game in the title of the series, but he's also the beast in the east and blue bombin guy so I dont get it

That's probably just a defense because he didn't think too hard about it and once someone suggested Alexy Quest it was too late.

None of this actually matters, of course. I'm loving that ME2 is formatted really well to these 1-2 hour videos. Now that he finally has a hand on when to use which abilities it's becoming a lot more tolerable to watch the gunfights.

Oh Christ, Kai Leng. Right.
ME1 Cerberus = obscure terrorists with mysterious funding
ME2 Cerberus = unofficial Super PAC/military/science arm that supports half the Alliance
ME3 Cerberus = infinite resources, infinite men, capable of anything the plot demands

At least they're not as bad as CELL from Crysis where they just magically become Google/Apple in 3

Finally catching up on Mass Alex, I don't know why but Mass Alex 2 really reminds me of Westworld season 2. Like, I wanna watch it but I just don't have the same amount of interest as the first run.

Mass Effect 2 is a tighter, better constructed game than 1 but depending on what you got from the first title it's also somewhat less interesting.

Interest in Biker culture has gotten a boost in recent years as more people look to fill the void, and despite the staff's seeming inability to see the forest for the trees zombie stuff is still real popular. The game will probaably do fine by most metrics.

I was about to say mass effect 2 winning 2010 GOTY was the biggest crime in GB history.

But then I saw it was up against red dead redemption.

There were no winners that year.

y'know, i thought me2 was better 'as a game' than 1, in spite of liking me1 more... but watching mass alex, i dunno if that's actually the case. both games are mostly devoid of interesting encounters and any kind of engaging mechanics. moment-to-moment they feel like they were both thrown together at the last minute.

me2's difference is that it's cribbing from cover shooters instead of doing its own thing.

The combat in ME1 feels like total trash and in ME2 it's at least adequate, so that's my position. I consider Mass Effect 1 on a systemic level an incrediably dull RPG and a bad third-person shooter. ME2 commited to a direction for the series and is far more palatable.

Anyone planning on picking up that Early Access Dreams tomorrow? Heavily considering it since the user created content is almost always the best stuff to come out of Media Molecule's "play create share" games like this and LBP.
Yup I'm planning to. My tax refund should hit tomorrow so I'm going to grab a couple of move controllers and a camera as well, I loved everything about the beta except for how much the dualshock controls were a hassle

Which did you play? I'm wrapping up mine too, after much struggle initially.
Thorgrim, it was revenge for my first ever Warhammer 1 campaign where I had no idea what I was doing and got bopped by Greenskins using the Underway. Same thing happened early on but I managed to catch em and double back. Might go back and finish up a Long Campaign Victory since I am pretty close to it, just hope I don't have to play whack a mole.

i know barry isn't about barack obama but i kinda wish it was about barack obama
I mean if you want media about Barack Obama (or an analogue to Obama) going by the name Barry. Look no further than John Omaha from Air Gear. Wait, I thought he was called Barry Omaha, sorry my bad.


Yes anime Barack Obama exists.

i still think the funniest version is in the flash where (according to a friend) a superintelligent gorilla goes back in time to try and assassinate obama while he's still a college student
