As in the first game, Mass Effect 2 gives you the opportunity to pursue romantic relationships with your teammates. The gender of your character determines which crew members are potential love interests. Given time and attention, your relationship can blossom into a full-fledged love affair. But these things don’t just happen, you’ll have to put in some effort.

Suddenly, your door hisses open, and standing there framed by darkness is… who? Which of Mass Effect 2’s romantic options have you been courting? And how will you spend your final moments together before embarking on what will likely be a suicide mission?

Since the wraps finally came off Apple’s iPad, the buzz on the internets has reached a deafening fever pitch, as everyone from MacLife to Engadget to the Huffington Post to… well, us has scrambled to make known their reactions to this touchscreen-driven piece of shiny new tech.
The wait finally is over. At last, the Apple tablet everyone’s been talking about has been officially revealed. Is the iPad for work? Is it for play? Yes and yes. But is there anything to be truly excited about in terms of gaming? Maybe.
