  • Questions about Mass Effect 3 (or “Why did Garrus stop calling?”)

    Dear BioWare *pause to allow anyone who isn’t a couple of hours into Mass Effect 3 to close their browser* I have a few questions. 1. Why is Commander Philbert Shepard no longer allowed to sport a disfiguring facial scar? It gave her character an air of danger and a whiff of backstory. According to…

  • Cute Chronicles – Favourite Coat on the Citadel

    Su-per cutesy happy fun game and craft time! For a long time, I’ve been looking for the perfect winter sailor coat/military coat. Don’t ask.

  • Play it Again, Suze

    Deliberate misquoted blog title aside, do you often replay games or is it a case of once you’ve finished one, you never look back? I’m mainly thinking about games with a solo story/campaign mode, not games that you constantly return to because of the multiplayer factor. The constant influx of new titles always means that…

  • No More Mr. Nice Guy

    You may have noticed that more and more games are including a morality system, where you can forge your own path making right and/or wrong along the way.
