I recently picked up Mass Effect 3. I never intended to buy it as I had heard bad things about it, particularly the ending, but I've enjoyed what I've played so far. Perhaps keeping my expectations so low has helped!

I don't think it'll top the experience of the original Mass Effect however. ME gave me such a strange feeling of isolation and insignificance as a human being in the vast universe. Perhaps this was due to it being an unknown and new franchise, or simply the grainy-filter effect that the game had, but something about this game gave me a very strange feeling, which actually enhanced my enjoyment of the game. I feel that ME2 and ME3, whilst being fun to play, don't have that same atmosphere or mood that the first one offered.

Mass Effect 1 really felt like a space exploration RPG that happened to have fighting along the way. The whole atmosphere felt more "happy" than the later installments, especially ME3 which is really grimdark and completely combat-focused. Basically, it was originally like Star Trek and morphed into Call of Duty in space. I'm thinking the first thing EA asks with a new game is "how can we make this more like CoD?"

The funny thing is, the combat in Mass Effect 2 is arguably better than 3. There are way too many bullet sponges in 3, and no more heavy weapons.

That's why I still have a fondness for The Precursors -- it captured that feeling of actually exploring new worlds, even if most of them had humans on, that I think the later combat-heavy Mass Effects lacked. Even though it was buggy and sometimes broken, and much like Mass Effect most of the planets you could travel to didn't have anything on them, I think it worked well enough...

I find it hard to go back to plain shooter after mass effect, I always expect a bit of talking and choice and a bit of lame character stuff for whatever reason that isn't necessarily good. It has done more to change shooter than rpg. I want to get rid of the stat in me2 so much.

Borderlands 2. Does anyone else find it nigh impossible to tell who's killing what in CO-OP? Overall I don't think I like it very much, sending it back to Gamefly soon.

I played Borderlands 2 a ridiculous amount, Co-op is certainly the only way you should be playing the game. I don't think it's hard to tell who's killing stuff, but it doesn't really matter considering you're focusing on one enemy yourself. If you don't like the plot/setting though, the gameplay won't do much for you, but I certainly liked it a heck of a lot.

I just cleared Touhou 6 without continues on Normal. Well, hello there!

Had previously 1cc'd 7,8,10,12. I bet I could try some on Hard now, maybe give the extra stages a proper shot...

@Sundownkid: I totally see the appeal, I'm probably just having a bad time because my co-op pal is playing it begrudgingly and we're on the ps3 (which from I hear, is the inferior version).

I have no fun playing FPS with a controller, I always buy my FPS or TPS on the PC, so I can't comment on that. I always played co-op with online buddies and/or strangers, and never had any problems with it.

Understandable, console versions' frame rates take a shit very frequently.

the amount of hype in no way prepared me for how much dark souls would have its hooks in me. whoever it was that first had the thought "discerning complex combat mechanics through trial and error" would make a fun game is...a genius.

^dark souls discussion thread here

the game has been a pretty huge hit on these forums in particular. lots of us have done tons of pvp matches with each other, and a few have even gone through the entire game in special co-op runs c:
