Well, just finished my second full playthrough of ME3, complete with all the DLCs. It was considerably better the second time around. I don't really remember the old one to compare it to the new Extended Cut ending, but I did reasonably enjoy the ending this time, so I guess they improved it. As to ...

I've not gotten any of the DLC yet. I made the mistake of starting a new ME3 game while still being annoyed at the ending. I'm planning to get all three DLCs, then start a new game (well, with my nearly max level Shepard which finished the game once already anyway).

I'd say it'd be MC. I think the reason the 'c' isn't capitalised normally is to show that they were originally two separate words. At the risk of sounding patronising: Mc is 'son' in old Gaelic, so I'd imagine that originally it'd have been written separately, much like the Ap prefix still is in Wel...

I use GIMP for image manipulation. Very well featured, and free too.

But you already have ME2 and 3 on two different systems. Why the hell would you buy the trilogy as well?

Well, I preordered the Join or Die edition of Assassin's Creed 3 from Tesco, and due to a supplier issue they were unable to fulfill the order. However, they're sending me the standard edition for free. A little annoyed that I won't get to play the bonus content on my first playthrough, but fair pla...

Because I enjoy the games. If I didn't buy the same games then I wouldn't have any PS3 games, because I've an Xbox 360 longer than the PS3. If I love a game on one platform (I mean I got the PS1, Sega DC, and N64 version of Resdient Evil 2 ) then I why shouldn't love on a different platform. There'...

I bought X-Men First Class and The Hangover. I'd seen the Hangover before, but not X-Men. It was good fun. I quite enjoyed the Bond villain style of the thing, mixed with superpowers. I'm not a huge comics fan - I know some of the stories in broad strokes, but not in detail. I didn't know Mystique's...

Not really the same thing, but I'm not sure it's worth starting a new topic? If you're in the UK, The Sun are doing a deal this week for a free Lego set when you buy the paper. You get a different one each day(starting today, ending Sunday). I think you have to take the voucher to Toys R Us or W H S...

I'm quite happy with my Galaxy S. It's an older phone now, which means it might well be cheap (I've not looked into this though).

not spoils it. But it's the thing that sticks in my head the most, rather than all the brilliant stuff that's gone before. Which is sad.

I don't think I've ever been as emotionally involved in a game as Mass Effect 3. It was on course to be my favourite game ever easily. Then the ending came along. I really don't know what BioWare were thinking... It's a shallow ass pull that leaves a bitter taste about the entire series. They're cra...

Heh! I started it last night and got as far as the Normandy. Loving it already, especially how great combat feels. I think it's gonna be one hell of an experience, playing this through! Yeah, combat is a big improvement over the previous two games. I've always said that I don't mind that the combat...

The third one paints a bleak picture of war and has some pretty hard hitting moments. As the_escaflowne says, I wouldn't feel comfortable playing parts of it in front of children. The sexual themes are negligible, and not worth writing home about - certainly not graphic in any way. Finally - ME3 is ...

I picked up ME3 on Tuesday and somehow resisted playing it till I finished ME2 again. Finished that last night so waiting to head home and start 3. Can't wait! Have you considered becoming a monk? That level of self control would be the envy of religious orders around the world. I've just arrived a...
