Today is the day. A vast number of gamers will be excitedly mashing buttons on controllers thanks to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hitting shelves. Many keyboards may be suspiciously silent, however, thanks to a little problem with the PC version's second disc. Following traditional installation instructions, the game asks for Disc 2 in order to complete its setup. Unfortunately, it looks like some of these discs are actually copies of Mass Effect 2 instead. Oops.
Mass Effect 2
In an interview with some of the guys at BioWare last week, Kotaku asked what content was in store for Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age's future DLC packs, and jokingly wondered if more romance options were a possibility.
Much to their surprise, their suggestion was taken totally seriously.
[Greg] Zeschuk said that the idea of adding more dating and love to the game after the fact is an idea he likes. He thinks of such possible content as, in his words, "a romance pack," something that has nothing to do with combat and everything to do with relationships. "You know, It's possible," he said.
If you -- like me -- are human, then you probably have noticed that Zoe Saldana is stunningly beautiful. You might also be interested to know that in this month's Essence and Glamour, the 31-year-old star of Star Trek and Avatar mentioned that she loooooooves sex and can't wait to have more of it. But watch out: Saldana also thinks that violence and video games are ruining sex education in America. Come again?
Well, this was inevitable. The abysmal tedium of Mass Effect 2's mining segments has been well-known since initial reviews of the game came out; however, the minigame has now inspired minor nerdcore sensation Kabuto the Python (above) to pen a rap about his frustration with BioWare's design choices. Sample lyrics: "I used to rock microphones, rhymin' in the stadium/These days I launch probes, mining for palladium/Slouched at my console crying from the tedium/I contemplate relations with the slimiest of aliens." Video below: technically NSFW, but if your boss doesn't care about your listening to tracks about Mass Effect at work, we don't think the obscenities per se are going to be an issue.
