March 5 – March 9

Bad news, Earth lovers. Looks like Earth is totally getting invaded this week. The good news is that a short-tempered, morally compromised, alien sympathizing ex-Spectre who has spent the past few years moonlighting for what most people consider a terrorist organization has totes got this covered. Worry not, Shepard is back!

Mass Effect 3 brings us the final installment of the over-arching Reaper driven story to date, and hopefully big answers to big questions. Questions like: will we return to the Citadel and be forced to suffer Ambassador Udina again without having the option to shoot him? Will Joker and EDI finally consummate their love? Will we ever get to hang out with the Illusive Man in his cool sun-facing office? These are just a few of the questions that are only remotely funny if you've played the previous games. And even then, still probably not.

I wrote last week about my deep, sinful love for Mass Effect 2, and I also mentioned that because of this I am concerned that 3 will fall short. But, if it doesn't, then this is perched to become one of if not the best sci-fi gaming epics in decades. All things considered, I'm hoping that Shepard's third journey is the stuff of legends.

No, Alanis, it's merely coincidental.

(irony definition snob)

Spoiler:
Actually, pretty much all of my ridiculous predictions seem to have come true in one form or another.

To be honest, I know I used the word incorrectly there, but I think you understood my point.

Oh, I definitely did. But, I saw an opportunity to call someone Alanis, and I could not pass that up.

It's true. I cannot argue that point. :p
