I don't mind Yahtzee. His reviews aren't entirely dumb mockery, but they aren't entirely good analysis either. For proper analysis, I much prefer Errant Signal or SuperBunnyHop on Youtube.

Yep, I'm gonna enjoy eating meals to that. Looks like his content release schedule is pretty slow though.

Another terrible free game for gold.  Some Civilization title.

And it is indeed terrible.  It looks like the game was made for five-year-olds.

So now I've beaten Mass Effect.  It was fun.  I kind of wish I had gotten into the series earlier, because now I have absolutely nothing new to add to any discussion of the game.  It's all been said before.  The vehicle sections suck.  The long elevator rides suck.  The combat sucks.  The paragon/renegade choice system is overly simplistic and much too black-and-white.  But the story, characters, universe, etc. are just great, and by far the best part of the game.  I'm thinking I'm going to go ahead with the other two as well.  Not right now, because there's Dark Souls 2 and whatnot, but at some point.

Also, there are funny threads on the old site about the series.  Crusty is Crusty and Blanko is balkno:

About...10 hours of my day yesterday was spent playing Fire Emblem: Awakening on the 3DS. I got it for Christmas but never really felt like trying it until finally going "may as well" yesterday, thinking "this isn't bad" for an hour or two, and then...wasting...the whole day on it

I'm actually getting excited thinking about playing it in a little bit. This hasn't happened with a game in a long while. This is good

Uhh you're about a year late on that. :P They made that clear last E3 at the game's announcement. I will be getting both the Wii U and 3DS versions.

In other news, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster came today. Spent two hours playing it and adoring the HD-ness of it (a 1080p game on PS3!!!) before I decided I'm actually way too tired for this, so I'm going to sleep and then get up and play it forever and say goodbye to life.

I haven't paid attention to E3 in years. In fact, I haven't really been excited by games for about that long.

In a world with phone emulators and, well, content rich smart phones, I don't think they're worth the money either. But I like Pokemon and Mario Kart so.. Nintendo gets my cash.
