July 22, 2012: Wrapping Up Mass Effect

Today is Sunday and I am on the home stretch of Mass Effect.  I started playing it somewhere around December so this is about eight months of Mass Effect being the only game that I have played.  I am really anxious to see the ending of the last game.  Three games, three novels (I am only halfway through the last novel) and about one hundred and ten hours put into it.

We stayed home all day today.  Dominica cooked and we are doing pretty well at getting back into the groove with our Medifast plan.  I can’t believe that I have been doing that diet for well over a year now.

This evening Liesl decided to plop down on the couch and watch me play Mass Effect almost to completion.  She eventually fell asleep but before she did she was sitting right beside me snuggling for hours as I worked my way through the final battles of the game.

It was about one in the morning when I finally finished Mass Effect.  I can’t believe that it is done… all three games completed.  One hundred and ten hours of game play!  I can’t say that I was happy with the ending, it was not at all what I was expecting and it did a really poor job of wrapping up a story that I had been really engrossed in for such a long time.  I like that they did something unexpected and put in a serious twist but there were so many loose ends just left open at the end.  Kind of disappointing.  I’m not unhappy with the actual outcome, but with the lack of closure, I think.
