Think about who we're talking about here...I think you know the answer.

Did you guys get any of the Battlefield 3 dlc? I got Armoured Kill and Aftermath now that I've actually got space on my harddrive. It's like having a whole new game

As an Astrophysics student, Mass Effect really has a lot of neat stuff in it that interests me.

I'm surprised, there's a lot of creative and accurate thought gone into it. Some of it, however, is ridiculously thought up. Which is really weird because you figure they were smart and creative enough to do some things, yet made some creative adjustments that are just painstakingly stupid considering the education it took to include the former.

Yeah, I did the season pass. The Aftermath maps are awesome. I haven't played on them nearly enough though.

Yeah, it definitely is one of the better research games out there. What type of adjustments do you mean? Are you talking story-wise or science-wise?

Science-wise. It is very well researched of a game, and clearly the people who've worked on it are not just game designers and computer programmers but at least moderately versed in astrophysics and planetary science.

They seem to love a combination of Xenon and Krypton for atmospheres, which is odd. Abundant for noble gasses, sure... every other exoplanet though? Come on...

What really drove me up the wall though was that they're so well educated and so studied on the topic, yet they will go ass-backwards and label something as unknown ("???") when it's a simple spec. One of the planet's acceleration due to gravity (measured in Earth G's in the game) was labeled "???" as though measuring gravity is some scientific discovery... assuming since they already know the orbital period, the distance from its star, and the masses of the objects around it (and the fact that you can flyby the planet), calculating gravitational potential energy is simple algebra from Newton's version of Kepler's 3rd Law. Rearrangement of variables, plug-n-chug. It blows my mind that they can be so versed in the complex matters, yet mess up something so simple like that.

Haha yeah, I get it...

I guess when you just get so involved with something like this it tends to make you care a little more...

Just joking around, I do the same thing. I'll be watching some show, and will get livid about the unbelievably of some minor aspect (usually involving gun usage), when the entire premise is ridiculous.

Finished Far Cry 3 this weekend. For those of you who've finished:

 
Did you watch both endings? The "bad" ending is pretty freaking screwed up.


Dead Space 3 coming tomorrow. I've loved the last 2, so I'll probably have to get this one. We'll see. Also really looking forward to that Aliens: Colonial Marines game next week, hopefully it's good. If I end up getting both, I'm going to be wetting my undies nightly for a few weeks playing two scary games in a row.

I did the bad ending and was all "what.the.fuck?"
I watched the good ending on youtube afterward. Can't wait to get the dlc going

No, I was making a joke, like, put the spoilers within a spoiler, for no real reason.
