Mass Effect 2 is at 50% downloaded! And after only 10 days! As much as I detest how clumsy Origin is as a client, I will acknowledge that when they brag about "optimized downloads" they are actually not lying. Who knew!

At this rate I might be able to play before the end of the month, which would be fantastic. GARRUS VAKARIAN, I'M COMING AFTER YOU.

Actually, my Paragade fem!Shep save will probably stick with Kaidan because I'm curious about how much more horrible the romance dialogue can get between those two. But when I replay as a Renegade fem!Shep, then Garrus better watch out. Oh yeah.



Money came in, so I got a paid account for a year. My LJ hasn't been paid in years and years so only fifteen of my icons ported, whoops. Been uploading and culling off and on all day. One of the two reasons I hadn't left LJ before now was because of my icons, so I'm happy to have that part mostly resolved.

(The other reason is having to abandon the hellboy name. DAMNIT, STILL BITTER.)



New Star Wars trailer is out. Meh. I saw some leaked spoiler info that may or may not be true re: one of the villains; comparing the said theory to the trailer footage, I'm guessing the leak was genuine. So my fandom participating will probably only last until Christmas, unless I decide to invest in fix-it.

If Finn is asleep for even half of that film (or more) I will be SO FUCKING ANGRY. John Boyega deserves better than that. All you have to do is point at Attack The Block and you can see that he deserves better than that.

Also could've used some Leia other than just a quick shot of her back with some voice over that I actually didn't hear clearly. All those whispering ~~~~voices~~~~ don't really do it for me, but that just might be a matter of taste. Will of course wait for the movie to come out before I get critical.

Just not hyped, that's all. Maybe the next teaser will do better for me.

Oh, enjoy ME2! I really liked that one. IIRC I swapped to Garrus since I...let Kaidan die for drama....oops.

JOHN BOYEGA IN ATTACK THE BLOCK YES. I admit I only went along to see the previous movie because John Boyega was in it and I really LOVED AtB. This coming movie's poster is...disappointing.

With big Hollywood movies I am, as always, cautiously excited. They have a spectacular tendency to fuck things up lol,
so it's good to come in with lower expectations.

There's an interview somewhere with John Boyega where he says not to worry, he's asleep in the trailer but he's definitely in the movie. And there's been production photos released where he's dressed and appears to be involved in the action (so not in recovery or still on bedrest).

when i realize i could romance garrus i was like: yep, not romancing anyone in ME1. Waiting for the turian. :P

hope TLJ does live up to the hype! TFA was so good so it has a lot to live up too imo.

Hahaha, I culled my icons down, then went paid again, so now I need to re-upload. But it's been so long that all of them are out of date, so I need to hunt down some new ones.

Eee, ME2! Have you played it before or will this be your first time? I'm not into Garrus in a shippy way, but he's so great and the game in general was terrific fun. (Currently I'm slowwwwwlllly working my way through ME3, and pretty much ignoring the overarching rocks-fall-everyone-dies (OR SO I'VE HEARD) plot in favour of rolling around in that universe again. It's the best. 😍😍😍

(I actually have never played the first one, so I've decided that my Shep lost major chunks of her memory between 1 & 2, which is kinda even plausible given the Cerberus thing. Aheh.)

Yes, that's Grunt! :D He's...I want to say "he's a sweetie," but he's krogan of course so take that with the appropriate cultural modifiers. :D I didn't know whether he was going to show up again in ME3, but he just did! I'm so pleased. :D

Oh man yeah IDK anything about Wrex but I'm getting the impression that that's something my Shep wishes she'd remembered. :D One of these freaking days I'll go back and play the first one, I swear.

And that is a very believable theory about the cloning. Could VERY well be.
