Actually, I had seen the Owens article previously and enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the other ones.

Good stuff.

Proof reading is my weakness. I tend to vomit on the keyboard and hit send...

Just like here.

I think that comes through by the Chevy Sonic article being the 'weakest' IMO

The other ones came out very natural....like you and I were sitting there talking about the subject in person. I didn't get that vibe from the Chevy Sonic articl

Yeah, I have a hard time figuring out which way to go sometimes. I submitted an article this morning that starts like an actual news article then races downhill into... well... my own stupidity.

That may provide a small comfort to those who lost loved ones, but there is a darker similarity in the Quso and bin Laden killings.

Hiding in plain sight

Osama bin Laden had been living as a hermit for years. And while he was not strolling through the town square with a shirt reading "Hi! My name is Osama", he was found in a Pakistani town known for its strong military presence. Similarly, Quso was killed in the same Yemen where he took part in the attack on the Cole, spent time in prison, and met with the Nigerian terrorist in an effort to blow up a plane over Detroit. Quso did not flee to Euro Disney and keep himself hidden in a Donald Duck costume for the last few years. He stayed where he was known and where he knew others.

Im thinking somewhere around there.

I liked the God piece, read both the "conservative" and "liberal" pieces, but the other 2 didnt interest me.

The one that really stands out to me is the one about explaining cable to a 3 year old. That concept is very impressive in how simple yet complex it is.

Ding ding ding! You've just won a year supply of sailboat fuel!

I would warn though, thats dangerous ground to walk for humor. I dont think there ever will be a "ohh to soon" punchline to any jokes about that. Much like the tsunami in japan. You see the devastation and you think loss of life, its not really a good time to come back with humor once you went there.

While some wont mind you gotta consider some will. If the reader is connected with your piece and they spark a certain emotion, its hard to switch to another emotion total opposite of each other so fast. What could be humor could also be viewed as disrespectful or inappropriate given the lead in to the Humor was talking about death.

I don't know about everyone else, but I like the your humor and snarky wit. I would like to see more of your writing where you let loose instead of reign it in

Thanks. I got a little gunshy after being admonished and rejected on an article about virtual homophobia in Mass Effect 3

I have yet to play this and would like to, so if you please, no spoilers, lol. I already had the ending ruined for me by some stupid kids on FB.

About the homophobia, I didnt get that sense in ME2...

If your a fan of mass effect 3, play it just like the others. Enjoy it. If you have gamesaves from the past games it fills the story lines out more. Dont read to much into stuff and defiantly dont watch any videos on ME 3. You should be fine and enjoy the game.

I recently played it and i saw the rage and all the fuss about the ending. I didnt read into it and in enjoyed the game playing it exactly like i did the previous ones. When your done, you decide what you think of it.

There are certain characters that can have same sex relationships. First play through, I got a little worried about how to respond sometimes. Half way through I had to scrap it and start over.

I just hate that I know how it ends. Ive never been upset about how a game ends. If that is the story the developers want to tell, then who are we to get upset about it. Ive actually put this game off because I know the ending though. Thats what pisses me off so much. I was really looking forward to it, but knowing what happens has ruined it for me. Its like looking forward to a movie and the someone that has just seen it tells you the ending. I could punch them is their face.

Are you going to replay the end when they release the new ending?

And that was kind of the point of the article. How the hype over it caused someone who was not a homophobe to play the game like he was. And in the end, I felt very sorry for anyone who lives like that.

LOL.... i dont wanna sound bad and i never thought about it. But maybe your peice has merit and maybe make a post here and make sure everyone has played it and put spoiler in all caps in the title and lets break down this.

Because i knew it could happen, i didn't know who was the characters and i didn't wanna find out. So i tip toed real close in choices i made. I never had to start over, but i did wonder if i missed some paragon points because i avoided talking to certain people when i know they would have said more.

I would like to see the original piece

sounds to me the issue is more with your editor than your subject content

Im not into that sort of thing, but I can see where if you want a game to represent reality then all walks of life must be in it. The funny thing about a game like ME3 getting flak for same sex relationships is, you can have a relationship with an alien and that seems ok. So, in a matter of speaking inter-species relationships are accepted, but same sex relationships arent. Seems a little messed up to me.

Most likely im a huge fan. It really depends on how much content is there and at what price. If its 3 hours for 30 dollars then no. If they wanna charge half a game price they need to have alteast expansion pack content. But im a Huge fan and would like to support the Devs and see another ME coming and not see EA screw over the franchise.

Honestly ill probably start a new game and play through all the way and see how that effects the new ending instead of using my last game save.

Let's just say I wasn't sure if James was giving me a nickname or a pet name.
