Time to Save the Universe!

Last week I made sure I worked a little extra hard so I could take some time off this week. Why, do you ask?
It's time for FemShep to kick some Reaper ass.
Mass Effect 3 came out last night, and like the huge geek I am, I had three playthroughs ready to go. One, where I chose not to romance Kaidan or Liara, but totally dug the Drell assassin, Thane; a second where, after my love Kaidan was mean to me on Horizon I chose to get it on with the Drell assassin, Thane; and a third where, despite how douchey Kaidan was on Horizon, I chose to stay true to my love.

What can I say? I have a thing for Bioware assassins.
For those of you who don't play video games,  Howl For Me is available for preorder at Amazon and Samhain (nothing on Barnes and Noble yet, but I'll keep checking). You may now safely ignore the rest of the post. Even the hot, half-naked picture of Kaidan Alenko at the bottom.

For those of you who are, and are into Bioware, I've never romanced Garrus. All my hubby had to do was say, "Damn. Is that a giant cricket?" and my bug phobia took over. As much as Garrus is my bro, and I take him pretty much everywhere, I can't picture getting down and dirty with a giant Jiminy.

Sorry, Garrus lovers. I know he's actually related to dinosaurs or birds or something but... I can't.

Garrus, you're one of my favorite characters, but I still don't wanna tap that.
So today, my website has been updated to include the buy links for  Amazon and  Samhain for Howl For Me, and I've written a blog post. After my short morning nap (thanks again for keeping me up last night, Bioware) my FemShep is going to save the universe. Again. And get down and dirty with some Bioware men. Again.

I love you, Bioware.
P.S.: For those who want to know, Dusty is finally playing the series, and he chose Ashley over Liara. He said he was curious about Liara until she essentially said, "Hey, I'm roughly seventeen in Asari years. Wanna get it on?" Not being Capt. Kirk, he said no.

Caution: Blue skinned jailbait.

Wow! Cool looking game. Yay, so glad to be able to pre-order Howl For Me. Been waiting for Jeff's story for a loooooooong time. I can't wait to read it next week. Squeeeeee!

Enjoy your game time!

Thanks, I am. I love BioWare because they make games that tell a real story, and let you interact with that story. You shape the outcome rather than the outcome shaping you.

Oh, and you can romance hot assassins of the elven and drell variety. That doesn't hurt either. :D
