Homesick for the Normandy, that is. The Mass Effect series is easily one of my favorites; the story, characters, powers, and world that BioWare has created are all incredibly impressive and I just can’t seem to get enough of it. I’m like a Mass Effect junkie at this point, but a proud one at that. With Mass Effect 3, the world, or in this case, worlds, that many of us have grown to love over the last two games have officially been plunged into war. I remember how difficult it was to take out a single reaper, requiring many of the galaxy’s races to come together to take it out, so the thought of hundreds of Reapers invading seems utterly hopeless. Fortunately, we have Commander Shepard, and he/she is capable of pretty much anything.
Mass Effect 3, the end of Shepard’s trilogy (though you can bet they’ll keep the brand going through spinoff’s and/or another series), is due out on March 6th, 2012. If there wasn’t already so many fantastic games waiting to jump into my open arms this year such a long wait would be painful, but we can make it together. Oh, and that one, two, punch maneuver Shepard uses when he freezes an enemy before shattering them with that nifty blade? Yeah, I can’t fucking wait to do that.
