Afterlife Blues update.
Here. That makes three pages in a row where I'm actually satisfied with the artwork! Can I make it a four-peat? Hint: probably not.
Mass Effect 2 update below the cut. It's full of SPOILERS. Don't click if you don't want to see SPOILERS. Seriously, don't.
I was kind of shocked by what the Collectors did to us. I'm just tooling around the galaxy, well... kind of wasting time, to be honest, when all of a sudden they charge up and, wow. Isn't it kind of unusual for the villains in an RPG to actually take deliberate, positive action against the heroes? I actually can't remember any other game where that's ever happened. Points to Bioware. But dangit, who's going to tell me I have new mail now?
Note to Morinth: While we did indeed have a job opening on the Normandy crew for a heartless, sexually ambiguous, mass-murdering biotic psychopath, that position was in fact filled several weeks ago. Thank you for your interest and Cerberus hopes to hear from you again in future lives.
Teasing Tali after completing her quest is the funnest thing. Oh Tali, you're so adorable.
I blame electroweak for this: As part of Thane's quest we had to get some information out of some random criminal chump. Walking into the interrogation room I claimed I'd play "good cop." But just the thought of actually having to chit-chat endlessly with this goober while he repeatedly refused to cooperate was too much for me, and instead I beat the crap out of him until he gave up the goods. That's what all those agonizing interrogation situations we got into playing Confed did to me! I LEARNED IT FROM WATCHING YOU, DAD
So anyway, I've finished all the loyalty quests (acquiring a snappy new black and yellow uniform for each member of my doughty gang of mercenaries and sociopaths) and it's time to hop into the Omega-4 relay and... You know, I'm still not sure what our mission is exactly. Are we going to attack the Collector homeworld? With one ship and eleven guys? Yeah, I... have a feeling this is going to be rough.
