It’s been well over a week now since Mass Effect 2 came out and I still don’t have my copy yet, and as you may have guessed, it’s killing me. I loved the first title and I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel, but a little snafu has kept a review copy out of my hands, at least for now.

I’ve even purposefully kept my eyes off of reviews and articles about the game so I can face it fresh when it finally arrives, but it’s starting to make me a little crazy!

Looking back, I’d love to know how many hours I put into the last game. Probably something I don’t even want to think about, but I’m sure, like a lot of gamers, it would be well over 100 hours since I’ve played through it twice.

The non-gamers out there are probably thinking, ‘What, 100 hours? Are you crazy?’, but there is nothing like a smartly written, brilliantly designed game, and Mass Effect was all that, in spades.
