How Mass Effect 3 kicked my emotional ass

Batman: Arkham City: What, me worry?

Dear Destructoid readers, I have something I'd like to share with you today. It's something quite... dastardly, if I do say so myself. More maniacal than the Joker, more ruthless than Killer Croc, more relentless than Two-Fac...
