I was actually really surprised that Journey was up there so much. GOD WHAT A GOOD GAME I'm sure it won't win anything (maybe song and original score. maybe independent?) but ugh it's really good

Dont count it out, Bastion was up there a lot there last year and it won a lot of stuff (from everywhere, not just VGAs)

Bayli we need to get on that dating sim. Can you imagine the business?

I hear the extended cut is...ok. It placated some people. I haven't seen it and I really don't want to. It's bullshit. I'm sorry but EA and Bioware farted up an extreme gas cloud of *bleep*ery with this. I did everything right. I should have saved the day and gotten my hot piece of Garrus ass. Shepard deserved a happy ending. Damnit.

It is slightly better. It makes the endings more palatable. Doesn't mean they're not still inane bs. Like eating a sugar coated turd.

RIGHT? I can't even bring myself to beat it again because WHAT'S THE POINT! I just want to retire with Garrus on a tropical island with our adopted Krogan babies... Oh, I'm getting the brain pains.

Mordin's death still makes me cry. So pointless!! But at least it was noble.

I'm also very glad that I'm not the only one with dirty thoughts for Garrus. I bet the character designers had no idea what they were getting into. *purr*
