I loved the legacy of kain, especially the Raziel character.

Soul Reaver was probably my favourite game on the first Playstation. One of the first games that had an open-world feel for me.
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.

I loved that series. the only one i didn't finish was the very first Blood Omen game. The series had some top notch voice acting and as plots went it was more than a touch involved at times.

Its a shame that there is no sequel to Defiance likely soon or perhaps ever.

Nora: I'll look into how the people film their playthroughs on Mass Effect see if I can't have it up and running for Mass 3 for you to Enjoy. :popcorn:

I have a High end Desktop so it can handle the extra workload :P
I'm going to guess you don't mind if the Fights get cut down and glossed over a bit as long as there's a few shots of the environment traveled through, I doubt you want a full watch as I crawl over every little inch.

:hugs: You're a star, Wuffy! I think a lot of people use Fraps to record the video, maybe something else to record the sound? Especially if you're adding a commentary.

Actually you do whatever you want. I will undoubtedly watch several :-) Especially as we know there can be so many variants in the game played. I enjoy 'blind' Let's Plays as I love to share the film-maker's reactions. But I have also really enjoyed Zevik's polished walkthroughs without commentary done on 'insanity' level. But I know his won't be out for several months.

I'd love to see yours!

I usually make a character that looks like a rugged guy with a beard. But sometimes its whatever takes my fancy at the time.

I watched a walk-through of an early release of the ME3 demo. No spoilers from me. But the reason I'm mentioning it on this thread is because it was the first ever 'adept' Shepard I'd seen, a femshep.

Very exciting btw!

So ME2 arrived the other day. It's starting to piss me off already and I've only played about an hour... :shifty:

ME2 or ME3? And if it is ME2, what is pissing you off?

Number 2.

I thought the opening scene with the Normandy being destroyed was really good. And the idea of my character being resurrected was fine (hardly original but a solid idea never the less). But then I'm running through a base that's under attack and I'm being given dialogue options that leave me and the two guys I'm with standing chewing the fat as the walls are coming down around us. The only thing I thought my character to want to know before getting out of there asap is what happened to her ship and her crew. But I didn't see any option for asking that.

I don't know. I loved the Knights of the Old Republic games (in case you're not aware of them they're previous games by Bioware that are essentially an older version of Mass Effect just set in the Star Wars galaxy) and I'm not even a very big star wars fan. They had awesome storylines and characters I cared for. But there's something that I can't quite put my finger on in this series that leaves me wanting more. I don't have any emotional investment in any of the characters, except for maybe Joker but that's got more to do with the fact Seth Green plays him.

:?

Sorry to hear that. Don't forget Shepard has just been yanked out of unconsciousness early because of the base being under attack, and really doesn't know what's happening.

I found it easy to get emotionally invested in the characters and I'm not even playing the game, just watching it unfold in a variety of YT Walkthroughs and Let's Plays. Let's hope it gets better for you, as I think the storyline of ME2 is very griping.

I like Kotor way more that ME. It's sad that there will never be another KOTOR single player game.

Wouldn't "Shepchick" be more appropriate? ;)

About Mass Effect,

The first game had the best bone-chillingly awesome dialogue, the one the player had with Sovereign. Harbinger, in ME2 was almost as menacing. The best chiller in ME2 was the ending cut-scene showing the entire Reaper army :shock: .

Aaaah. My femshep is an adept. Which sucked a bit for ME2 but great for ME1. Also it works great for me since I team with Tali and Garrus. We lack a little in pure shooting but hey. ;)
