The Glasses, They Do Nothing. Useful.

Check this out to learn more about the story behind the strip. In other news I regret to inform you, the audience, that the near future of the Highscore Kid blog is somewhat shaky. My flatmates and I are currently in the midst of a struggle not to become homeless and this may cause me to miss a strip despite my best efforts. So consider this a warning, slash disclaimer, and once more I thank you for your patronage.

New Game +

So, like the comic says, I finished Mass Effect 2 today and already I’m pining for the next one. My Commander Shepard has gone a little off the rails in this installment and her Paragon status, while intact, is visibly slipping. I guess that after playing the good guy for a while you realise that violence and intimidation can sometimes reap their own benefits. It remains to be seen whether she will redeem herself in the next game or fall even further.

Just Another Saturday

So logging in to Blogspot this morning I was greeted with some exciting news via Chris’ wargaming blog. Colossi! In Warmachine! That’s right, even more gigantic models to take up table space and create wallet space. I hope they don’t look good cause then I won’t have to give Privateer Press all my money.

The Inevitable

Real people, real requests.

I’ve been spending a bit of time on Mass Effect recently. Yes, that’s right, Mass Effect the first. I’ve been hearing good things for a while now and thought that if I was going to play the third one I’d better get caught up on the story. Especially when half the reward of playing is to have your character move through the whole story arc. Anyway, I finished the game over the weekend and installed the second. I imported my character file and loaded her up (My Shepard’s a female-colonist-soldier-paragon for those of you interested). I was pretty impressed with how the game transformed my old-graphics character into a new-graphics one. I was, of course, given the option to recreate her appearance from scratch but after spending 20+ hours with this Shepard I’m loath to say goodbye and start over.
