Get your consoles warmed up, friends! Today we've got special guest Susan with a post about why we should play Mass Effect, including why it's awesome, where its shortcomings are, and why it's a worthwhile gaming experience.

Red, Green, Blue (or, five reasons why Renay should play Mass Effect and you should too.)

As you may or may not know, certain residents of Lady Business Towers are on a bit of a scifi kick at the moment! And as a massive fangirl of this series, I feel that I’d be remiss in my duties if I didn't at least TRY to convince both them and you to give Mass Effect a go - or at least that it is definitely relevant to LB’s interests.

So, in a cunning and subtle attempt to lure you all in, here are five excellent reasons why you should play these games. Read more... )

In theory, we are fans of winter here at Lady Business. I mean, we certainly love of the idea of winter. In our minds, it’s all brisk air, hot chocolate, jumpers and (this is crucial) weather-based excuses for staying in with the media of our choice. In our mind’s eyes this is what winter looks like:

(Emergency Puppy)

Yes, this fantasy winter will do nicely.

The real thing is a little different:

See, when we imagine the fairy tale snowscape of winter, we always forget we have to work which means *shudder* going outside in the dark and the weather.

I think we could all do with a winter lifeline right now. So, we’re here to appeal for your favourite winter blues recs – the media you turn to when the nights start drawing in and the temperature drops. If you’d like to help us out, please leave us recs in the comments for anything: comforting favourites; creators you can always bank on; songs to drown out the sound of rain etc. There may be more photos of cute animals in return for your kindness.

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
