My anticipation for this game has gone beyond the stratosphere. I can’t remember the last time I was SO engaged in a story, except for reading LOTR back in college.
Thinking about Mass Effect puts a smile on my face and makes me all giddy. The lore, the universe and its races, planets, technology. Everything. I’ve read the comics, read the books (save Deception) and own a few pieces of clothing from the Bioware store.
Nearing March 6 and Mass Effect is all I can talk about. I’ve made a great group of friends online in the multiplayer demo, which is (I think) a big part of my excitement. Most of these new friends are from femshep.com, and of the female variety. I’ve never had so much fun playing a game online. No condescension, no posturing. Just honest fun. Many are new to MP, which makes for a relaxed atmosphere of just trying things out together.
They are courteous, polite and love to share tips and stories about the game. Ladies I have to say it’s a blast playing with you and I look forward to it every evening (and this is just with the demo!)
I’ve found a great group of people who share a love of this universe (and many other titles I also love).
