Re: Romancing The Game

Today’s comic is semi-autobiographical. I’ve been on a Mass Effect to Dragon Age to Mass Effect 2, then back to Mass Effect and now Dragon Age again before hitting up Mass Effect 2 once more. I’d be a gigantic liar if I said the romance subplots weren’t a part of why I’ve been starting so many new games. But just a part.

The Mass Effect franchise I’m playing multiple games on a “just to see” basis to discover how ME3 will take the choices made in ME1 and ME2, and importing them in such a way that it matters to both the narrative and possibly even the gameplay.
