I have a confession to make. Apparently I'm the slowest Mass Effect 2 player on the planet. I'm a little over 30 hours in, and I still have at least 5 hours of gameplay left. Most of my friends have already beaten the game, and they did so in well under 30 hours with 100% completion. I don't know what I'm doing wrong to be going so slow, but I don't really care. I love this game so much it's not funny. I honestly don't want it to end at this point. I just want the game to go on and on and on.
I need to beat Mass Effect 2 though soon, because the unplayed games are starting to pile up on my shelf. I already pre-purchased Bioshock 2, and I'm also buying the new Blaster Master Overdrive this week for the Wii. It will be the first WiiWare game I've ever bought actually. I should be reviewing it for Gamer Limit, so you can look for that review to be up on the site later this week.
Besides the new games I keep buying, I still have 5 or 6 games from this past Fall which I still haven't played. What happened to the good old days when nothing was released in the first quarter, allowing you to catch up on all the games you missed from the previous year. Those days are long gone, and with them my ability to keep up with the avalanche of new releases. Oh well, I guess I'll have to deal with it and figure out a way to catch up.
I hope everyone had a good weekend, and congratulations to the New Orleans Saints for winning the Super Bowl. They definitely deserve to finally win one. Now it's time for your regularly scheduled weekend cblog recaps.
