I've had a busy week working so I haven't been playing any games but I have been listening to Team Teamwork's Final Fantasy VII remix album, Vinyl Fantasy 7.

Never thought I'd hear Tom Waits collidle with Final Fantasy VII but I'm glad I have.

Oh and steam's midweek sale is Titan Quest Gold 75% off - 2.49 in real English monocle money. If you like Diablo or Torchlight, this one is for you; if you don't like Diablo or Torchlight, you are mistaken.

Anyway, having me so jacked up and eager to talk about a game is a big achievement. I cant wait for number 3...

Here is how it went for me:

Again i played as a asian looking female sniper, i lost the save from the first game, but i managed to make her look the same anyway.
In the first game i had a little Asari romance and i really tried to get Miranda this time, but i yelled at her for fighting with Jack (zero) and she never forgave me for that, so despite being able to get Jack, i instead went with Garrus. In the final battle Garrus got wounded but survived, but Thane got his head blown off while trying to close a door.I saw two coffins at the funeral and i never saw Miranda again, so i guess she got killed off camera ?


After all this i managed to go through ME1 again and this time as a tough as nails military guy that drink petrol and piss napalm.
I will get at it again and see what i missed later this month...

Apparently, if you play a female charcter you can get lady/lady romance only with Kelly Chambers... The side you pick during the Jack/Miranda fight is very important. Both do not forgive you if you take the other one side, but if you got enough paragon points you can keep their loyalty (which is fundamental to the ending). Everyone who dies is clearly shown on camera, so if there were two coffins, someone else died and you maybe missed it. Basically the survival of each member is completely dependent from getting upgrades and gaining their loyalty. it think that the Jack/Miranda fight can be done without taking sides even with high renegade, probably instead of the smooth talking diplomat you'll just tell them to shut the fuck up before you snap their necks, or similar... Having Miranda on my side made her resign from Cerberus and tell The Illusive man to stick it, and THAT was great. People i've spoken with have testified that with each playthrough things changed. I think that's just amazing.

It's also interesting how the "Romance" side is handled this time. They criticized the first one for having sex scenes, and they were missing the point. In this one the scenes are incredibly part of the emotional side of the story. and they are pertinent to the character you choose to have it with. Jack can litterally rape you or heal her emotional wounds. Miranda fucks like a pornstar but has no love in it. And Tali... I still have to try this one, but during the romance dialog options, she has the sweetest, most innocent and pure reactions of the bunch (she's still my favourite character)

Dante's inferno has a very interesting plot, and I guess recreates the book, but the controls and gameplay are too similar to GOW for me to take it seriously. I played the demo and thought I downloaded the GOW3 demo by mistake.

A PR person for the game came around to the shop to tell us how they've 'recreated the poem' I asked her about the double jumps and combo system, must have missed those in English class.

Based on famous battles that actually took place in ancient Japan...
