Breaking news in the world of scienceAs many of you have probably already heard, July 4th marks the day that scientists have finally come to a conclusion on a pressing issue that has plagued us for decades.
The ending of Mass Effect 3. And by that I mean the big "WTF just happened?" moment of the game.
There's probably nothing I can say that hasn't been said, and lord knows there's way too much to be said to be properly put in one journal entry. The one thing that just gets to me though is how a game can exceed my wildest expectations as well as throw me into a state of depression on one disc. Ok... 2 discs, but you get my point. For a series that quickly became the most engaging and emotional set of games I had ever played, it amazes me how and ending so poorly written, so choice-less, so lacking closure, so lacking a boss fight, so half-wittedly thrown together and so all around "bad" could exist by the same name. My highest hope was that their DLC would change that, but alas, it's only purpose seems to be to clarify and expand what happened, in order to protect the "artistic integrity" of the developers. Don't get me wrong, I've seen what the guys at BioWare can do, and if anyone's deserving of getting respect for their creativity it's them. But the idea that they won't admit that they made a mistake, let alone fix it, irks me to no end. You could blame EA, and to extent, maybe I do too. But I fail to say why BioWare can't at least say they're sorry that they had do it.
Well, I guess that's the end of my rant. Here at least... If you're unlucky enough to know me in real life, I doubt you'll ever hear the end of it.
On a happier note, the season finale of MLP season 2? Simply outstanding. "This Day Aria" is right up with "Smile, Smile, Smile" as best songs from the show. An absolutely perfect ending to a wonderful season. Here's to more Fluttershy episodes in the next.
They've got everything there! Cupboards, beds, chairs you name it! Everything's conveniently placed on display and everything from the smallest knife to the light bulbs in the lamps is for sale.
And they have food too! Swedish meatballs and Klingon berries (whatever those are) and a huge restaurant to eat it in.
And everything's in Swedish too! As a Canadian, I'm used to seeing everything written in both English and French, but it's cool seeing a foreign language everywhere. It makes me feel like I'm in Sweden or something.
Seriously, I think I had too much fun going to a furniture store. Maybe I'll spend next weekend there too... but I'll have to plan around my next all day venture to Home Depot..
