Adventures in Gaming: A New Chapter

Checking my past journal entries, I see that Younger Nephew and I began playing Mass Effect 2 in earnest on January 23, 2017. Yesterday afternoon, we finished the game. There was much rejoicing!

And then we started in on Mass Effect 3. He was a bit frustrated with the length of the tutorial section and the number of extended cutscenes early on in the game, but he's pretty captivated by the story line of the Reapers attacking Earth. He's really eager to find his old crew mates: he keeps wondering aloud what Grunt and Jacob are up to, and when we met Liara again, he pumped his fist in the air and shouted, "Yes!"

This is all new territory for me, since I haven't played Mass Effect 3 by myself. I'm looking forward to experiencing a new story line.
