I am stoked for Mass Effect 3! Playing the demo reminded me that I don’t have to wait much longer for it. Playing the demo also reminded me that I still had two pieces of Mass Effect 2 DLC I needed to play. I grooved on Lair of the Shadow Broker a few nights ago and will write a review of it soon. It’s solid though; of the three “main” pieces of DLC, I’ve enjoyed it the most and find it the best deal, and that’ll probably be the case after playing the final piece – Arrival, which I’ve read mixed reviews of.
I made the decision early last week to discontinue playing Phantasy Star, not because I completed it but because I figured I’d gotten what I wanted out of it. I played enough to get about halfway through it and thought the time I’d have to dedicate to it (another ten hours?) wasn’t worth it. I then changed my mind later in the week. It’s light enough that I can listen to a podcast and zone out before bed, plus I’d really like to complete it after reading it’s Wikipedia page and seeing that it’s garnered much praise over the years.
And of course, I’ve continued playing Skyrim, last week focusing more on the main quest.

All of this talk about Mass Effect 3 has reminded me that I really need to go back and finish the first game. I started it, got about 4-5 hours in, then got distracted with something else. I’m thinking about starting over and doing a new playthrough soon.
I really liked the first one, but the improvements in Mass Effect 2 make the gameplay in the first one seem underwhelming. Although the original has some loot lust going for it and a more solid sense of exploration.
