Journal Entry: Tue Apr 17, 2012, 2:17 AM
I'm working on my second playthrough of Mass Effect 3 at the moment--my horribly, terribly, incredibly evil and despicable renegade by the name of Aven. (I pretty much yell, "I'M SO SORRY!" at my TV screen about every other cutscene. I'm terrible at being renegade. Lol.) I just noticed something today, and I couldn't resist writing a little journal post about it.
I really, really dig the random little stories of the various Citadel people that you can overhear. I think it's so neat that there are completely un-interactive story elements that really feed into the environment and provide these tiny, personal moments of life amidst this huge, sweeping conflict. So rad.
I got the full stories of most of them on my first playthrough, but just today I got the full story of the Salarian soldier and the female human outside of Purgatory. I actually got kind of teary-eyed. It was so randomly touching! I totally love it; it's now my favorite one.
My (very) close second favorite story is the one with the teenage girl and the Turian officer down in the refugee area. It's so sweet yet sad. So great!
I was just curious what other people thought of the stories. Have any favorites or comments about 'em? Do tell!
Anyway, that's all for now; I must get to sleep. Morning class tomorrow, egads. Ciao!
