Mass Effect 2, everybody I know loves the game, it even won Giant Bombs Game of the Year last year and countless other publications/websites Game of the Year too. I however never really enjoyed it that much, I bought it when I got my 360 in about Febuary(?) last year and I enjoyed it to an extent. I enjoyed the dialog tree's and the emphasis on social aspects, however the combat really put me on a downer. I didn't know whether I was doing it wrong but I seemed to spend a large amount of time in the weapon and special power menus constiantly switching wepons due to running our of ammo or choosing diffrent powers. I felt that I was in them to much and it intrupted the combat far to often. The loading times were also a killer to me, I enjoyed the conecept of the ship and even though I wanted to explore and talk to the people on the varoius levals of the ship I always ended up agaisnt it because I didn't want to sit though those loading times.
I ended up playing it for about 3 hours, then I played a few other 360 games and decided to sell my 360. I was going through a phase of selling all of my things and trying to go for a minimalst view for my room. I got rid of my Nintendo Wii aswell, I ended up regretting all of this and just before Christmas last year I went and bought a 360 and last year in the summer I bought a new Wii. I didn't buy Mass Effect 2 for the 360 though, I wanted to play it again though, I just wanted to get it on the PS3. So I waited until it came out on the PS3, bought it and launch, and yeah same kind of thing, couldn't get into it. I even felt it was worse, I don't know about any of you PS3 Mass Effct 2 players but some of the auido seems out of sync during varoius cutscenes throughout the game, and there was that whole losing save bug they had. So I put it back on the shelf and though that was the end of it, Mass Effect 2's time had passed, time to move on.
Now fast forward to the present day, I have been ploughing through Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, got mysef about 60ish Jiggies, I hoped to finish it last weekend. However the end of this game is just murder, I find myself skipping missions going "I'll come back to it later and go try this other mission". And the process repeated untill I had no more missions, so I decided to take a break and come back to it in a few weeks. So I needed a new game to get into, I decided to go with Mass Effect 2, I finally get Mass Effect 2.
I decided to contuine from my last save which was about 2 hours in, and I have found it hard to put it down since. I don't understand what's been diffrent, but I finally get the whole combat thing and the loading times are less of an issue for me because I really want to talk with these people and do there quests that they give me. Its getting really good and I am in love with the varoius characters, really addicted to the game now. So yeah, thats all I wanted to say, oh and any tips on BK:N&B would be appreciated :)
