Apologies for the lack of timely updates lately.
Since Mass Effect 2 came out, I've been burning the midnight oil to get it done in a decent amount of time… had to put a few things on hold and reshuffle priorities for the last week or so, but I completed the game tonight and will be getting my schedule back on track starting tomorrow.
Working on the review as we speak, but I will say that the second "half" of the adventure plays a hell of a lot stronger than the first. The end sequence is especially gripping, and finally brought back a lot of the emotional tension that I felt was missing from much of the game. It doesn't change the fact that I still feel as though the developers made a lot of WTF alterations to the game design, but it was very heartening to see that the team got their act together and delivered a real showstopper to close things out.
The Mass Effect magic isn't gone, the devs just take more than their sweet time getting around to it, and make the player work a little harder to find it.

Honestly, I’m going to take a day or two to decompress and we’ll see what’s next. In the meantime, i’m going to be working hard to get my second novel finished in a month’s time, so that will take up a pretty good amount of time. = )
So what is next on your plate?
I was just in Florida for a few days. While I was there I read most on the prequel Mass Effect book to get me into the universe.
I am interested in seeing if I had a different take on the two games once I am done.
