Default Zero Punctuation: Mass Effect

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

Dont think that was one of his better ones but still made me laugh. I'm going to be trying to play it through again over christmas so that review had some nice timing.

Meh, I don't think it was his best.

He brought up some valid points but like he said he skipped every side quest so his review seemed like he was ranting about a different game to me.

I agree with the dialog though, people are all too eager to tell you their life stories. Then again would you want to spend hours on end piecing together some characters story over the course of the game, or just get it out of the way early on.

I have to open the link up in IE to get them to work. Firefox doesn't work for some reason.

Easiest way to do it is get the IE Tab extension for Firefox.

If your so adverse to using IE, how's about you ditch that tired old rag of a Fox and get a quality replacement in the form of Opera.

Just tested and amazing that... You know it works without modification!

Well... I suppose Ffox is like a Civic, complete turd until you bolt on lots of mods.

I'm referring more towards other characters not the ones on your ship.

But you're right, however some of the dialog options can be deceiving. You'll click on one expecting Shepard to say something and then he/she will go on and say something completely different triggering dialog.

Not to say it's bad, I enjoy the dialog more than the action myself.

There is a difference between humor and ignorance. That review shows that he doesn't know much about it, then complains he doesn't know much about it.

All the answers he needs are in the game.

I dont think his reviews are meant to be taken seriously...at all.

BTW, works fine for me in the latest FF.

In reality he didn't say much bad about it, nothing relevant anyway. I think he liked it but just kept with his current style of reviewing.

Yeah, he's an action junkie.

I have no problems with that, and he is the ONLY reviewer I know who actually states his bias, which makes him more honest then any of the other sites out there... I just do not like it when they base their reviews on ignorance
