I definitely could have finished ME1 yesterday.

I could have. Instead I got all completionist-obsessive (and Steam doesn't even track achievements /sobs I wish I could transfer my PS3 trophies over) and decided I needed to travel to every system and cluster and planet and abandoned ship in the galaxy. OH! And I finally got all 21 keepers. The first time I played I gave up at 20 and went to kick Saren's ass, but I did it. Such accomplishment.

The game has gotten a little glitchy on me. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the mods--They've been running smoothly for the first 25 or so hours. Game just crashed out of nowhere twice, and I've had Shepard get stuck in a few places. Making her draw her weapon got her out of one spot; the other was a deal-breaker and meant I needed to reload. Fortunately, I save like every 15 minutes. Every 5 now.

It really made me wish I could switch to other party members à la DA--That saved me a few times in all 3 games.

There's been a fair amount that I forgot since the first time I played. Like Feros and the Thorian--Once I got there again, it all came back to me, but prior to that I was staring at my journal log with no recollection of what happened there. And then when I got there, it was "Ooh, this is the place with that fucking sky bridge."

I remember really enjoying ME1 when I played it the first time, and I still am now or I'd call it quits, but replay value seems to be low. Doing a lot of the missions a second time just feels like an obligation rather than something I really want to do. I think what's really driving me is:

1. Playing more renegade than paragon
2. Wanting to talk to my crew
3. Wanting to play ME2/play all 3 games with a single Shepard (this is really the big one--I like this Shepard a lot, too)
4. Being obsessive about checking off tasks on lists (it's what drives me, man)

I'd like to have it done by Thursday--This is one of my short weeks, and some ME2 + alone time (starting to get very PMSy--sorry, everyone) on Friday sounds really good.
