Monday Pimpage: ME2 Review and JtS Ep #2

I’m sitting in an airport waiting on a flight to Boston so I figured that’s as good a time as any for a little shameless self-promotion.

My Mass Effect 2 review is live at Gameshark today. Needless to say, I loved it. There are issues with it, but at the end of the day, it was just too enjoyable to get hung up on petty things like the tedious scanning of planets or the fact that the actual amount of gameplay in the game is a little limited. I’m starting playthrough number two as soon as possible.

Also, episode #2 of the Jumping the Shark podcast is live. Note also, much thanks to Brandon, that this week we do have an iTunes subscription feed up and running. Yay!  Let me tell you, these things are a bitch to edit, but I think the result has been worth the effort. Bill, Brandon, and Danielle all do such a fab job of making themselves seem interesting. Fortunately, knowing them like I do, I know that it’s an illusion and they are, in reality, just horrible, horrible people bent on world domination. (In the same sort of way the Brain, of Pinky and the Brain, is bent on just that. Sadly, I think that makes me Pinky.)  Anyway, if you’ve any feedback on the show… well, tell it to someone who cares. –Kidding- Feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments as we are most definitely still learning what we’re doing here.

And with that I shall await my flight. I may have dodged a bullet as I was originally schedule to fly through Washington DC, which I hear is just a mess today. Many flights in were cancelled. Mine was delayed by over three hours. Fortunately, US Airways rules and they got me moved to another carrier that has a direct flight. Huzzah!

…now watch my plane crash. That’s how these things happen. Fortunately, I saw a survival guide this weekend on how to survive a fall from 35k feet so if something does go wrong midflight then I am equipped to survive!
