So is it any surprise I have basically abandoned my attempt at a dudeShep playthrough? nagia
trying to play a dude is like Mordin trying to slow down his speech style: it goes well for four words (read: "halfway through Freedom's Progress") and then you hear "nononocan'tdoit."
In other playthrough news, the Yazmeen replay has hit the SM and I'm ready to go keel over in contact embarrassment at Garrus's adorable awkward. I can't wait to do LotSB and Arrival with her (actually, I can, because Arrival is exhausting
, but shhhhhhh). Then again, I know Yazmeen best, and she amuses me deeply.
Hazan is still difficult to play. I am deeply wary of all the Renegade lines, and I'm still not sure how her brain works (or doesn't work; and the more I play her the more convinced I become that she's axe fucking crazy
and that the Lazarus Project maaaaay have failed).
RIP, dudeShep. You have been abandoned for the Ultimate Paragon and Ultimate Renegade playthroughs while I work up the energy to go through Noveria with an Infiltrator. (Fucking rachni workers. FUCKING RACHNI WORKERS. My Adept hated them enough as it was, but an Infiltrator? AUGH.)
I had to stop playing Heavy Rain. Brutal game is brutal. Not to mention that it leaves me in constant terror of fucking up QTEs and I don't play games to stress myself out (ME2 suicide mission aside, which left me all jelly-limbed from fear on my first runthrough and is now just a mildly-nerve-wracking adrenaline rush).
I've been thinking about replaying KHII for a while. Problem is the PS2 is hiding in the Various Electronics Closet Of Doom, and I should probably replay FFX if Lulu is coming up so soon in "Gifts&Tresures." Which is also problematic d/t location of PS2.
But I've also been thinking of patching my copy of DA2 (didn't download the patch? Well, no, I didn't; the patch came out when I was beating my head against ME2 and those damnable husks) and revisiting Addelaide Hawke.
Or maybe I'll just leave a save right before staring the LotSB mission with the Yazmeen replay and have fun with car chases and Charge-spamming Tela Vasir. (I love that. I loved seeing an enemy Vanguard do the same thing as my Vanguard. Now if only I could charge to places
and not just enemies... CHARGE YMIR MECH, SHEPARD PUNCH!!, SHEPARD SHOTGUN!!!, CHARGE BACK TO COVER. It'd be game-breaking but AWESOME.)
IDK. There are so many stories I want to tell myself, so many stories I want to be told...
