Random Shots: A Change In Plans

  • I have 22 posts in my drafts folder right now, and I'm having trouble finishing any of them. The spirit is not with me. So that's why you haven't seen any posts recently. Heck, my wife pointed out that it had been almost a week since I'd even used Twitter. For shame.

  • I would have liked to write about the Extended Cut for Mass Effect 3. Even after feeling so burned by the game, there is still the flame of hope burning. I'm not expecting much. But after doing a little reading, like this forum post at The Verge, I think I might at least be satisfied.

  • Unfortunately, my daughter had other plans. She's been sick the last couple of days. She refused to go to sleep last night, the night I wanted to return to ME3, until after midnight. She seems better now, but I must now wait until tonight and hope there are no other distraction.

  • I do have one thing I'm working on that I'll post later if I'm able. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

  1. I enjoyed the Mass Effect extended cut. It really underscored for me what my problem was in the first place -- not the ending itself, but how lazy it felt. My story itself didn't change, just the way it was told. I was almost brought to tears, and that's the BioWare way I know and love.

  2. I'm trying to avoid spoilers, but I like the general impressions fo the extended ended I've read. Of course, at the rate I tend to play single player MMOs, I'll be posting about how lame/ great the ending of Mass Effect 3 was some time after we colonize Mars...
