Mass Effect

December 12, 2010 1 comment

A few months ago I blogged about Red Faction : Guerella, and i still remember saying that it was one of those games that I really felt thatthe gameplay wasn’t great and that it took me a while to get into it, but once there I was loving it.

Now so far, Mass Effect, seems to be the same. I expected something like Halo when I bought it, but it turned out very different. I was hoping for something starting fast and that had straight forward liner missions. Was I mistaken.

I have since then clocked up about 6 hours of gaming, and only now is it starting to grow on me. Missions are not straight forward and can take a while to complete. Especially the assignments. One of those is trying to get a “religious” permit forward an alien to be able to speak on the streets of the citadel…

But all in all it’s a good game. Still getting used to the combat, and trying to place my men so they don’t just die 30 seconds into a fight. But I’ll get there.

Looking forward to getting some more time to play it, and progressing a bit further. Also burning to get Mass Effect 2, but will wait until I have finished the first one.

If you have any pointers, please share by means of comments. Would like to know what the veterans out there thinks of it.

Chat soon… Hopefully sooner that what I have been. 🙂

Something interesting is brewing…

Was very excited when I visited the Microsoft Connect BETA testing site today. Finally some more information on something interesting that I am participating in.

Unfortunately I have to abide by the terms that I signed, but all I can say is that I cannot wait…

Great stuff is coming our way and I can see many will be delighted and excited about the changes. I know I am and that just after spending half an hour with it…

I’ll post more on the subject once it has been released.

This is very difficult, all this cloak and dagger stuff. 🙂
