Bob, I have a problem. Yeah, big surprise, I know. Show up again only to complain. I just needed to write 'to' someone, or something. I feel like my life has been in constant decline ever since I left Ohio. Had a great girl with no good reason to leave her. Had a job that at least made me feel impor...

Hey Bob, I'm back again, for pretty much the only reason I do come post here anymore. Truthfully, the same reason I ended up here in the first place. Last year at this time I wanted to be rebellious. Didn't really work out too poorly, though it was hardly a resounding success either. I'm the only pe...

Dear Bob, I'm lonely. I just thought I'd tell you that 'cause, well, I don't really have anyone else to tell. Self-fulfilling my ass.

By any chance. Anyone play Call Of Duty :Black ops. (I have a feeling someone will tell me why its not a good game)
I do. It's not my favorite game, not in the CoD series and not in the FPS genre; but it is still quite fun.

Mass Effect is definitely a more refined KOTOR, at least the first one. It's BioWare, all grown up! I've yet to play KOTOR 2. ME2 drifts farther away from the KOTOR style, closer to the FPS aspects; but both games are excellent.
