About two dozen people have sent me a link to some article about Mass Effect at the NYT. The link is here, but the Times put the thing behind their registration wall.
I Googled around for a way past the wall, found a site that claimed it would show me an NYT article if I gave it the link. It managed to show me all the ads and none of the prose. Sigh. Forget it.
So, if you have the time or you know the secret NYT handshake, then there might be an article there worth reading.
UPDATE: HeatherRae poaches their text below. It’s actually a pretty interesting read.
ALSO: Jay Barnson has his take on it here.
