September was a monumental month for In Third Person. It was during that month where my initial PlayStation 3 impressions got the site featured on the WordPress.com home page, which brought in a lot of new readers. Traffic has cooled considerably since that massive spike, but In Third Person still brings in more people now than it did before the spotlight, which is awesome.
What that spotlight has also done is change the viewing trends on In Third Person. This site is now higher up on search engine priority lists, which means people are checking out a variety of different posts that weren’t garnering much buzz before.
There’s no surprise to what #1 is, but the rest of the top 5 is an interesting mix of content worth checking out if you haven’t already.
For a game that I still consider the front-runner for In Third Person’s Game of the Year 2010, it hasn’t done a good job of keeping me playing. A number of DLC updates have been released, but I haven’t bothered to even put the game back in the system to check them out. Based on my experience with the game, any sort of addendum to that story wouldn’t feel right to me. I’m more than happy to let Shepherd and his crew wait for Mass Effect 3.
That is, till I heard about “Lair of the Shadow Broker”, which is scheduled to hit the XBOX Live Marketplace this week. At this point, the game hasn’t done much to interest me as far as the Shadow Broker goes. But my interest in this downloadable content has everything to do with the Asari researcher and my Mass Effect 1 lover, Liara T’soni.
