Proof that I am pathetic:


So, a brother got me Mass Effect 2 for Christmas, right? And I really enjoyed it, but got all curious about the story in Mass Effect 1, so I got that off Steam.


And, the story is compelling and all, but it's a minor sub-plot that has me all wishy-washy. It's the romance, see? I was all stupid and have two characters 'on the hook' and they will make me choose between them after I complete the next main quest plotline.


AND I CAN'T DECIDE.


Ugh. Not to mention I am being all cowardly about just how that scene is likely to play out. o.O

If I pick Liara, then the the DLC "Lair of the Shadow Broker" lets that continue into ME2 but I don't find the character all that compelling.

Kaiden, on the other hand, I find rather more compelling, but I know what happens with him in ME2 and that's just 'grrrrr'. Also, he's directly below Shep in the chain of command and that's just WRONG. And I am having some serious trouble ignoring that fact.


I kind of flirted with making it all tragic (the game would let me) but that can only happen before the romance actually culimates and... well... can't do it.

I have gone looking online to try to find something to end this dead lock and it's just not helping.


So, the characters all sit, waiting to head to Noveria, while I obsess about a completely inconsequential choice.

(while I could try each option, I don't think my attention span is long enough for that.)


Edit: YouTube to the rescue. Now that I have seen one of the romances all the way through, I think the dead lock is broken.

I'd say that you are strange and need to find a new hobby, but I've spent the last four hours watching a COPS like show that involves a task force dealing with auto theft in New Jersey. We both need a new hobby.

I'll be bugging you in a week or two about a KC trip to Penzey's and lunch with friends while there.

I'm worse... I played through enough times in ME1 to do every relationship combo.

My current main in ME2 had a relationship with Liara but is now flirting with Tali.

Well, it's very rewarding flirting with Tali, after all. That's why I couldn't resist Garris (having never played ME before ME2) - he was just so much fun to talk to. So was Thane for that matter. Jacob... wasn't. Poor Jacob. But I doubt I will soon forget his comment about good deeds being like wetting yourself in dark pants - you get a warm feeling, but nobody notices.

I haven't done one with Jacob... that statement is interesting...

I suggest YouTubing the Jacob romance.

As for that comment, you can get it from him pretty early on from one of his dialog options.

I mean, Liara is hot. I'm just saying.

I found her more interesting in Lair of the Shadow Broker than in ME1, which was part of the problem.

That's a really good attempt at the Blood Queen.
