Clearly I’m A Mass Effect Fanboy

Clearly I’m A Mass Effect Fanboy

The first step is to admit you have a problem. As the very first reviews of Mass Effect 2: Arrival have begun to drop on the web I have been forced to make a startling confession. I am clearly a Mass Effect fanboy. Why do I feel this way? Because despite the new hole some seem to be ripping BioWare over the latest and last DLC for Mass Effect 2 I still fully intend to buy it tonight and play it with each of my different playthroughs.

Now, I may still play it and wonder what the hell I was thinking, but I doubt this will happen. The most likely outcome of my playing Arrival tonight is that I get a bit of a cold sweat and a tingle up my spine as the mission closes. I don’t care how much it costs. I don’t care if it introduces no new gameplay ideas. I don’t care if the only thing it has to offer is story. 2 more hours of Mass Effect 2 is all I want and that’s what Arrival provides. It gives me the fix I need, even if it isn’t a full strength dose.

And so I’m forced to accept that I’m a Mass Effect fanboy. I just love being in that world, throwing guards and bots around like leaves in a stiff breeze, Reaving the life force out of my enemies and generally showing the Reapers that humanity is tougher than they think. How, what, why and when make no difference to me. I just want to be there.

But then once I’m done I really should seek some kind of treatment program to clean myself up before the release of Mass Effect 3… maybe I’ll start playing Dragon Age II.

    Just got my copy of mass effect and can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about!

    I bought it because iv just finished dragon age 2, which to be honest was a bit of a let down, very good but if asked i still prefer the 1st one, ropey graphics and all.

    Sooooo hoping that mass effect is going to be the game i want it to be.
