Mass Effect 3 — early report

Monday morning I woke up, and I could tell that, after several days of giving ME 8 hours of my life, and more on Sunday, my brain had, as with Zhuangzi’s butterfly, decided that my corporeal existence was the dream, and ME3 the reality. In those hazy minutes of snoozing between sleeping and waking, instead of thinking “I should get up, take a leak, make coffee, and see about what on my schedule for the day,” I distinctly heard my brain thinking “I should check my mission journal, talk to Liara T’Soni, feed the fish in my captain’s cabin, hit up the galaxy map and see about kicking some Cerberos bitches off a colony”.

When I finally got up, I felt like what I imagine it would feel like had I spent all weekend in AC snorting blow, drinking, and stuffing $20s into G-strings. In other words, dirty, sleazy, and run-down.

One thought on “Mass Effect 3 — early report

  1. If you’re like me, you probably check every crew member for new dialogue between every mission, even the ones that are simply mirrors of the multiplayer coop ones. I still felt I was going to fast, and gave the storyline a break for a few days.

    Anyway, I wouldn’t feel so hard on yourself for a little immersion. The last feeling you describe reminds of the mornings waking up in a ‘certain person’s’ basement, got me all nostalgic.
