Plenty of people seem to rag on the ME3 Multiplayer but I personally love it! At this point though bronze matches are a bit of a joke and I just use them for testing new builds out while soloing. So the new challenge for me is trying to find the best build for each class to meet any challenge. Right now I just tried a Turian Soldier with maxed out Marksman, Proximity Mine and no Concussive Shot. I’m using a N7 Hurricane I and I’m absolutely loving it. With one use of Marksman you can solo a Atlas on Bronze and come quite close on Silver. With a damage maxed Proximity Mine you can destroy most unprotected enemies quickly. Marksman and maxed out damage/stability makes the Hurricane quite usable. Any thoughts?
Alright, let’s purchase Premium Spectre packs!
Krysae Sniper Rifle VII
Reegar Carbine VI
Male Quarian Ilfitrator
And my last PSP had a Scoprion II and Wraith III in it. I’m pretty sure it’s trolling me with kindness.
So far after three PSP I have nothing from Rebellion DLC. Instead I seem to be getting lots of Asari Justicars and Drell Vanguards. Kinda sad about this.
I frequent GameSpot.com a lot (sometimes more often then I might like when I’m busy) and I just watched the first “Quoted for Truth” which is a new weekly video. I would highly recommend checking it out. One piece of the show especially interested me. Most people have probably heard of Microsoft’s new offer for a $99 Xbox 360 if you subscribe to XBL for two years at $15/month. The comment that really hit home to me was about consoles becoming more like cell phones where you get the console cheap and pay every month for it. As a PC gamer I’m glad that I don’t have to deal with console crap. However, a $400ish console doesn’t seem so bad compared to my $1000+ computer. I know that my computer does a lot of stuff other than just play games (at least I think it does).
As a side note to anyone who wants to run of and by a new Xbox 360 for $99 please don’t do it. It actually cost more (Gasp! Microsoft didn’t give an awesome deal that saves you millions…).
Anyway, yay for PC gaming. I wonder what the next generation of consoles will be like. (Fear it as well)
I’m not a genius but I get good grades. I go to a good college (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and I do fairly well there (3.77 GPA as of right now). So when I saw this article it really astonished me: http://www.mercurynews.com/education/ci_20506332/cheating-controversy-grows-into-angry-national-dialogue-about?source=pkg. One sentence in particular bothered me deeply. It reads, “School kids — including those with top grades — not only cheat with great regularity, but they express trouble understanding what’s the big fuss?” So what’s my big problem? I don’t cheat. I’m not a perfect person and I’m sure that I’ve probably copied a homework problem once but I don’t cheat. So maybe this was a one time case for this kid and he just had bad luck and got caught. Tough luck for him. But the fact that most, or at least some of the top students cheat a lot scares me. And while I’m not sure it’s completely true and there is no real data to back this up, it’s still scary. What is wrong with my generation (whether college aged or middle school I’m counting that as ‘my generation’)? Because according to this there is a whole lot wrong with people.
Even if cheating weren’t against the rules I still wouldn’t do it. While I feel miserable when I get a bad grade it at least represents that I didn’t know the material. Cheating is just lying to myself, to everyone else who I tell my grade to, and to the professor. I know personally when I take an exam I have a fear of even accidentally looking at the exam of another person for fear I might see something. Even as tempting as cheating might be sometimes I could never bring myself to do it. So how are so many other people doing it so casually.
I love Mass Effect 3. If you asked I could list a hundred things are so amazing about the game. But I’m not going to do that. Instead, I’m going to take a look at the reason why I rage quit Mass Effect 3 before even entering a multi-player match. It’s all about credits, or the lack of them. And when I spend my well-earned credits and get a new appearance for my male human adept I feel like I have bad luck. But when my credits disappear into the infamous hole of Bioware’s pocket I get annoyed. “Purchase failed to process” has become a nightmare whenever I go to upgrade my multi-player arsenal. I just lost 100K credits just to day. I don’t have an exact count but I’m around 1,000,000 credits total. And thank god I don’t spend my money of Bioware points only to see them disappear the same way. For such a good game, a couple of annoying bugs are starting to make the game no so fun. Not impressing me Bioware.
