Mass Effect 3 post-mortem thoughts

So yeah, I’m done with Mass Effect 3.

Well, not done. I’ve played it three times now, and am working on the fourth. So here comes spoilers beyond and beyond, if you don’t want spoilers you really shouldn’t read this.

Things I’ll say before going more into detail: no, I don’t like the endings. No, I don’t want Bioware to fix the endings to placate me, I didn’t sign a petition nor do I support it. I’m neither for or against it, I feel it’s pointless. This is the game, this is the story of the game, these are the endings. That being said, pretty much everything up to that point is amazing. I actually found Mordin’s death quite moving (although I still have no idea why Mordin has a new voice actor now) and enjoyed pretty much every cameo and return, loved the story as it unfolded, loved watching Shepard try and navigate the treacherous politics of the galaxy while seeking to unite everyone to fight the reapers. The game is at times spectacular, your choices from previous games have surprising consequences at times. I’ve played a vanguard and a solider and enjoyed both of them. I even find the inventory system fairly easy to cope with, although partially because I only carry a Revenant most places I go because to me, the Revanant is Shepard’s signature weapon.

Yo, where the heck is Nitpixels?

Judging by recent  comments left on the site, you’ve noticed the absence of Nitpixels lately. You miss us! Aww, how sweet! Is Nitpixels dead? No. Is Nitpixels on a break? Sort of, yeah! The Nitpixels crew, alongside a number of other individuals we work with out there on the internet, came together recently to start a fansite for The Old Republic called The Holocomm. If you enjoyed our Star Wars-related discussions on recent episodes of the Nitpixels Podcast, you should absolutely follow us over there — we’re podcasting together about all things The Old Republic. It’s the exact same crew of  Matthew Rossi, Mathew McCurley, and me, Alex Ziebart. Even if you don’t like Star Wars, check out an episode anyway. You know us, we tend to get … off-topic. You might enjoy it anyway.

Will Nitpixels return? Yeah, probably! Do I have an ETA? Unfortunately, no. Starting up brand new projects takes time, and we want to make sure we’re getting one podcast absolutely right before we start dividing our energy.

Thank you all for listening, and I hope you’ll all still be here when we get back.

  • Spike TV’s VGAs
  • How much Mat didn’t want me to let me talk about The Last Of Us
  • Elmo somehow???
