For like, you know. Reasons.
Honestly once Mass Effect 3 comes out I won't know what to do with myself anymore. And it's a terrifying feeling. Because I remember the first day I even touched a Bioware game. It was sometime during the big storm in NY a couple months back. I was staying at my cousins' and they had Mass Effect 2 lying around, piled up with all the others. And with not much else to do that afternoon I sort of embarked myself into it, spending a considerable amount of time customizing my Commander "Maple" Shepard when I didn't have the slightest clue about the game and what I was getting myself into. All I knew was that my character was the captain of a ship that was under attack. And that she was willing to go down with that ship if it meant saving her crew...
It was important to me to put so much thought into her modding process and I acted as if I were programming a real person. And although I navigated through the XBOX controls like a console n00b I was too drawn into the ME world to find the difference overwhelming. [Lolololol my poor Trekkie heart]. And I'm getting creys from the photo because the line was long and I was too hungry to make friends on that line and omg.
/long story short, cheese up ahead! :z
I can't imagine a world without Commander Shepard.
