Finishing the priority mission on Tuchanka left me with so many feelings. While Palaven was a grim reminder of how huge of an impact the Reaper invasion is to places that are not Earth, it didn’t move with my emotions nearly as well as the events on Tuchanka. I’m left feeling a mix of joy and sorrow. I don’t know how much more of the game I’ve got to go, but man, that was emotionally exhausting. I don’t remember feeling like this while playing the other two games. Heck, I don’t remember feeling this way playing most video games.

First, I loved the interaction between Wrex and Shepard for pretty much the entire mission. It brought me back to ME1 when I would drag Wrex almost everywhere with me. When they reaffirmed their friendship, I grinned from ear to ear and squealed in delight. It made me so happy.

But then the events of the Shroud happened and Mordin… oh man, Mordin. I wanted my Shepard to go with him and was screaming “DON’T GO MORDIN!!” as he went into the elevator. Part of me was hoping he would pull a Grunt; that is, he’d survive and come back in one piece. The fact that he didn’t was heartbreaking; even now I’m on the verge of tears.

And at the end of everything, when Garrus tells Shepard to get some rest? I dunno why, but that really meant a lot to me. Gah, how much more can I love these characters? And when Shepard responds, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” I just wanna reach out and comfort her.

This was copy and pasted from my entry on Tumblr. Catharsis is good.
