Oh, Now I Remember


As I sat in front of my computer trying desperately to come up with something to write about this week I found myself without any ideas. There was no real news I was excited about. There aren’t any games coming out in the near future that I’m all that excited about. The WiiU is right around the corner, but seeing how I abhor EVERYTHING Nintendo…that was out too.


Then I tried to think of why I even like video games, and one memory came to mind. It was the day that, after more than a dozen years of playing games, I feel I actually became a “gamer”. But let me start with a bit of background info…


I’m a huge fan of the show Chuck. One day I was searching some YouTube videos and I came across a video featuring Adam Baldwin (John Casey) and Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker) doing voice overs for a game titled Mass Effect 2. I instantly looked on Steam and found a demo. After playing through the demo about a half-dozen times I bought the game. It almost instantly started gettin every spare moment I had, but really never more than 1-2 hours at a time, that is, until a snow-day kept me out of class one day.


I was going to school fulltime, so after driving my wife to work I came home and sat down in front of my computer, cup of coffee beside me, and started in on my usual 1-2 hours. Before I knew it I looked at the clock and I had been playing for 4 hours. I refilled the coffee and sat back down. I clocked a total of about 8 1/2 hours that day…way more than I had ever spent in one day playing video games. I experimented with new weapons and new powers. Got in a grove with certain squad mates (usually Miranda and Thane or Miranda and Garrus). Went further and further than I’d ever gone. Developed an affinity for sniping, which I had previously hated in games, and developed my most defining quality as a gamer…sitting there all by myself saving the universe.



Now this is a relatively boring story, I’ll admit it, but for me it was the day that I picked up the gamer tag and haven’t put it down since. No, I didn’t grow up loving a lot of the older games, nor do I own dozens of different games…but I’m a gamer none the less. Gamers come in all shapes and bends.


So what’s your story? When did you pick up that gamer tag? Let us know in the comments.

Daily Pic: Mass Effect Asari in Real Life

The picture above is what an Asari from Mass Effect would look like in real life. Kinda hot huh?

Wow, I don’t know why but I think I might have an Asari fetish. Is there a support group that could help me with this? I mean I know furies exist maybe I could start an Asari loving convention. Get prostitutes to dress up as the blue man group and get all the other Asari lovers in the world together for an E3 like sexual fetish convention. Yeah! I think I am onto something.


Daily Pic: Jack Mass Effect 2 Character in Real Life

For those of you fans of the Mass Effect series I bring you Jack  the character from Mass Effect 2 in real life (Yes, Jack is a “girl”).

Jack was a shipmate you could get in Mass Effect 2 if you beat one of the specialized missions. She had extremely strong “biotic powers” in the game(like super powers) and she was also a notorious criminal. She was used as a human guinea pig by a company for years because of her unusually strong powers. That’s were she gets all the sweet tattoos from(except the girl above is wearing a tattoo shirt WTF is up with that).

In the game you get to choose one of three women to have sexual relations with….I never picked Jack.

Jack in game. (thxtk)
