I've been gaming since I've been walking. I'm in a perpetual state of backlog, as I can't tell if my addiction is playing games or owning them. Steam sales and have turned me in to a PC only kind of guy, with any and all console games having fallen on the back burner.

Fallback genres are JRPG's, Strategy RPG's, Action RPG's...pretty much anything with an engaging story and mechanics that don't make you want to shove a needle in your eye. I'm the guy who plays through Mortal Kombat for the story -_-

All time favorites are Final Fantasy 7, Legend of Dragoon, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy Tactics, Metal Gear Solid, Halo CE, Mortal Kombat 2, Mega Man 2, the list goes on and on.

Currently I'm playing through Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura for the umteenth million time (with the goal of actually beating for a change) so I can move on to replaying Deus Ex so I can finally play Human Revolution. Also junking out to WH40KSM Online MPlayer as well.

Other interests include sports, fitness, fantasy novels, iPad games, movies, and booze.

To preface, I was hoping my first blog would carry more pomp and circumstance, but I need to get this off of my chest.

In response to the multiplayer ME3 report.

My eyes were thick with BLOOD when the leak came that the game was probably going to have multiplayer. WHY I asked, WHY take away from what a great series IS and try to make it something else? WHY take resources away from finishing the story, and providing the best possible single player finale to one of this millennium's greatest new IP's. WHY accommodate the adolescent's need for competitive online multiplayer!?

Then I read this article. If what this says is true, and it's cooperative, NOT mandatory, and not a single breath of effort was lost in developing this mode in conjunction with the rest of the game...then I'm OK with it.

Not just OK.

Excited even.

But so help me god. If this ends up taking away from the experience by even one Iota, I'm done with EA. For good. They've bastardized enough of the things I find great about gaming (Bullfrog! Whyyyyy!) and perpetuated the cancer that is bland competitive multiplayer.

I'm serious EA.

DON'T fuck this up.
