Day 11 - Gaming system of choice.
I’m a Playstation girl, but Nintendo has a special place in my heart and we will always have their systems in the house. Even the Gamecube that my husband bought “for me” when we started dating. (I do have fond Sega memories, though!)

Day 12 - A game everyone should play.

After being convinced to play Mass Effect last year based on the happy chatter of friends, I took it upon myself to start a campaign to get others to do the same. It’s only fair that I take this opportunity to promote the game further. Don’t be deterred by the fandom backlash over the Mass Effect 3 endings. Understand that it is because this series was So Damn Good that the problems with the endings and various other aspects have upset us so much. You definitely still need to play it, and here’s why.

Day 13 - A game you’ve played more than five times.
Technically, I could throw any of the MMOs on my list in here, but instead, I’ll group the Mass Effect series together and ignore the math. I have three Shepards and at least one of them has gone through each game twice. My husband thinks I’m crazy for replaying a game, but I point out how many times he watches the same, never changing movie. While Mass Effect ultimately ends up in the same places, the path you take to get there changes through the decisions you make. My legacy Shepard is a renegon, so I created Tarisa, my Test Shepard to see how paragon decisions and certain other relationship choices work out. Later, I decided to try out a renegade male Shepard, Ian, but Mark Meer’s voice acting for Sheploo is intolerable. I did manage to make it through ME1 with Ian with the volume mostly down, but then Miranda’s Lazarus Project did more than just bring Shepard back to life. Thus Jax Shepard was born.

Day 14 - Current (or most recent) gaming wallpaper.
I hadn’t played SWTOR for a while, but I still have wallpapers from my Agent times up. This is Cipher Nine's X-70B Phantom - the best ship in the game. SWTOR desperately wants me back, so I've started up on my Trooper again.

Day 15 - Post a screenshot from the game you’re playing right now.

WHAT IS THIS?

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
