[QUOTE]First, I can see why so many people put this game on their "like" list. I'm only a few hours in and it's already proven to be an enjoyable ride. Second, playing the game with a female avatar is a hoot. Not only can I make her charge into battle wearing armor colored to look like something out of Bubblegum Crisis but her interactions with the characters are also a real draw. [/QUOTE] Glad female Shepard is working out for you. Even though she's just supposed to be your avatar, she ended up being my favorite character. After a while, the choices I made weren't based on "what I wanted", but "what seemed right for her." I guess. It must be the voice, but I really don't like male Shepard. Also, I've never seen a render of him that I liked (Obama Shepard doesn't count...haha). I couldn't resist doing pink and black armor for a while, though I think I settled on something a little less silly in the end. I recently got the game on PC for a second playthrough, so I'm thinking about modding it to wear civilian clothes this time around. [QUOTE] Deadly Premonition was utterly ridiculous and absurd yet charming and heart warming. I felt for Francis so much! Besides being pretty cute main character his overall journey throughout the game was engrossing and thought provoking. I don't own a 360 so I had to bribe my friend in using his console. The gameplay was frustrating at times (driving and those wall monsters especially) but its characters and overall tone stole my heart. [/QUOTE] I don't know if I would call York "cute", but I think he's one of the greatest game protagonists of all time. Truly a unique character and strangely relatable considering how odd he is. I've been playing the game a lot lately, but I the map system/driving is hampering my enjoyment so much. I want to do everything and see everything...I want to talk to everyone in the town, but the fact that the map does not indicate if a location is "open" or not results in a lot of wasted time (and gas, which goes SO FAST!) Also, the maximum zoomed out option on the map is closer than you would ever want to be. This is a massive oversight! It's too hard to find anything! Still, I had heard the game was "so bad it's good", but that's not really the case. What's good about really is tremendously good. Still, it's fun to explain the game's oddities in realistic terms. For example, when I found the turkey sandwich trading card in the police kitchen fridge, I thought "Well, Thomas must have opened the fridge and thought "there's supposed to be a turkey sandwich here, but I don't have one! This trading card will have to do!" Or if you peek in on Keith and Lilly (?) at home, they're sitting on the couch, then Keith saunters up and turns on the TV. Peek again, and the TV is off...Keith turns it on again. I can only assume that Lilly turned it off when I wasn't looking and Keith is like "Aw, c'mon baby, that's my favorite show!" every time.
