Posted ImageIamJackssplitpersonality, on Oct 24 2011 - 10:34 PM, said:How is there absolutely NO Mordin love in this thread? It's almost criminal.Oh GOD I LOVE MORDIN AUUGHHH I DON'T CARE THAT YOUR SPECIES DOESN'T HAVE A CULTURAL CONCEPTION OF ROMANCE, WE SHOULD TOTALLY BE TOGETHER.FOR SCIENCE!So yeah, I love love love Mass Effect so much, oh man.I've had three playthroughs so far. There's Ricardo Shepard, the Paragon-(ish) Colonist/Sole Survivor Adept. He romanced Ash in the first game, and tried to stay true to her, but with Jack it was true love. I hope that all works out in the end, since I love them both. He's a bit . . . mentally unstable, got on board with the REAPERS thing before the Council even believed him about Saren, but most of all, he really, really hates Cerberus. Which is part of why him and Jack are so perfect together. After this is all over, they'll settle down somewhere in the middle of no where, and they'll have a million children who'll rebel against their parents by not getting any tattoos, not joining any cults, being law abiding citizens, having reasonable haircuts, wearing modest clothing, etc etc. <3Then there's Alana Shepard, the Renegade punchy-face Earthborn War Hero Sentinel. She had this horrible codependency with Kaidan that ended when he realized that he was better off with a girlfriend who wasn't an insane sociopath, and now is ruining Thane's last few months alive. Yeah, the end decision? Thane was all "Siha! You must not become that which you hate!" and she was all "Yeah, and I'd hate the WIMP who'd leave behind all this sweet loot!" I kinda wish Miranda was an option for her, since they could rule the galaxy as evil galactic empresses.And my last is my Insanity run, Leia Shepard, the much less insane Paragon Spacer Engineer. She's lesbian Captain Kirk, who predictably is staying with Liara, at least, until she finds another blue alien chick who'll actually stay with her since things didn't work out with Samara or Tali. :( I haven't finished her in ME2 yet, since I'm on Insanity and Praetorians and Husks insist on ruining my life. WHY DO HUSKS HAVE ARMOR. WHY.My favorite squadmates are Mordin, Wrex, Legion and Jack, my favorite species are the krogan and the salarians and I'm well aware of how horrible that is. Instead of releasing the genophage during the Krogan Rebellions, the salarians and the krogans should've allied together to become cybernetically augmented god-warriors for science and great justice and become an unstoppable force and conquer the galaxy. Since obviously that's the best thing for everyone.I also hope there's a happy ending for the quarians and the geth. And for everything, since I love everything and everyone in this game. Oh man I love these games so much like you wouldn't even believe.

I actually got to play a level of Mass Effect 3 at Comic Con this year. It is the one with Mordin and the female Krogan. It was a ton of fun, but much more difficult than the other two (though maybe that is because I was playing on the 360 while I am a PC gamer). Plus I got a bag full of inflatable omniblades. :D

I just started my... fourth ME1 playthrough. Mostly for Achievement collection purposes, as I'm missing Asari Ally, Turian Ally, Extreme Power Gamer, and Insanity. I won't be able to get to level sixty in one go, though... so I'll have to do a fifth playthrough. :PSince it's so hard to make good looking Shepards, I found a site that compiles all the best looking ones, got the ME2 code for one I liked, downloaded a program that translates ME2 codes into ME1 sliders, and then recreated the Shepard in ME1, with some slight modifications. I love industrious fans. XP

I suspect a troll, or a fan with too much time on his hands. Also, a ploy by Bioware? Anyway, I just finished ME 2 for the 13th time.

So what are some of you guys's favorite side characters?I really like Lorik Qui'in. His overuse of human sayings is humorous. :PBut Aria has to be one of my favorite characters in the whole universe. She is just so... well, the word is filtered on BZP. BUT her one rule for Omega has got to be my favorite line from the series. Her one rule also has NSFBZP language. XPEdit: On the subject of Mass Effect 3, I am not interested in most of the spoilers, but I would like to know what new powers are being introduced and what the romance options will be. Is there anything solid on those?

No new romance options. You'll just get to develop the old ones. If you had different relationships in the first and second games, it'll strike at you at the most annoying of times, right in the middle of the war, and you'll have to work it out.Thank you, my (rather old) copy of PC Gamer.-Dovydas

Oooh yeaaah, I really enjoyed talking to *wiki* Aethyta. Funny, I just found out if you get drunk and talk to her she looks younger and is wearing makeup. Lay off, Shepard. That can't be good for you.

Bioware has, more recently, said otherwise, and there will be new romance options. It wouldn't be very fair to people just starting with Mass Effect 3 otherwise, I suppose. I just wonder if they will be new characters, old characters that were not interested in you before, or a mix.

Thank goodness I romanced Tali in the second game. No one else can haz her. :PI recently got into the series, and I am absolutely hooked. BioWare is quite conspicuously comprised of geniuses.My favourite squadmates are easilly Wrex, Garrus, Tali and Mordin. It was instant nostaglia seeing the first 3 in ME2, and seeing Garrus as Archangel was quite frankly awesome. Athough I had read through the achievements prior to meeting him, I was still worried when he got shot up by that ship. Tali's trial was also a great option in order to gain her loyalty.Now I must get the DLC...

Stolen Memory and Shadow Broker are my favorite levels in the game. Well worth the money. Plus, in Stolen Memory, you get an SMG that is actually good.I thought Jacob was unattractive. Vega takes things to new heights of low.

I caught it, but frankly it wasn't that impressive to me. Part of it is that I suspected very strongly ahead of time it'd be the Reaper vs. the Thresher Maw scene, but mostly it's because eye candy aside it was Shepard running down a corridor, rolling a bit, and hitting a button. I realize it's the VGAs, but I was hoping for something a little more substantial.

Well, I for one had my mouth open for the duration of the trailer.For new gameplay details I will wait for Bioware Pulse. The new abilities revealed for Engineer and Vanguard (my favorite classes) - the Vanguard's ground-pound and the Engineer's sentry turret - look very nice.Since they're beefing up Shepard (as well as making the enemies more powerful), I'm hoping they reduce the cooldown for Charge by a second or two.

My biggest objection to Origin is tying your games to an account with a company that's had some real horror stories come out of it with regards to customer service. You shouldn't ever be banned from playing a game you purchased because you said something the developers didn't like on a forum.I'll still get ME3, but it's a serious disappointment, and if I were to lose access to my account I would have absolutely no qualms about acquiring a working copy of the game through less legitimate methods.

Getting it for Xbox anyway.I went to GameStop, but the local one was sold out (of Collector's Edition). So I had to order online. Pay shipping and also get it a week later than everyone else. =/I'd have just gone to Walmart and ordered it there but I had $36 in GameStop giftcards and money is quite tight. Meh. Hopefully I'll have an income by March. fingerscrossed

Anyhow, does anyone think that being a paragon will pay off in the end? And will your final decision in the Collector's Base in ME2 be a potentially crucial factor to the ending you receive (if not corrected by things mentioned in the spoiler)?I'm hoping 100% paragon metres are enough to see the best possible ending of ME3. :P

I don't think that spoiler's really a spoiler, since it's just a gameplay mechanic. But anyways, I doubt ticking off a love interest is going to do that much to harm your Galactic Readiness stat - I'd like to think Bioware writes their characters well enough that they're mature enough to overlook being jilted in order to, you know, save the galaxy.As for paragon/renegade paying off in the end - presumably so, though they've also mentioned it's not just going to be a case of "blue/red choice your way to victory." In particular they mentioned Shepard now has "influence" with various factions - so if you really really tick off the krogan by being Mr. Nice Guy to the salarians all the time they may not want to help you. They've also confirmed paragon doesn't always equal best result (I could give an example from the leaked script, but I'm guessing people wouldn't want that even in a spoiler tag.)

Yeah, I thought those kind of scenarios would play out.Although it'll be hard to navigate, I'm pretty blissful to hear that Bioware is developing a manner in which you have to rub your allies the right way. A very good sense of realism. Truly, this is the stuff of RPGs. :P

Word on the street (thanks to Game Informer getting a little overzealous with putting up info that's under embargo 'til tomorrow) is that the demo's coming February 14th. That's... quite a bit later than I'd hoped, especially given I've got something very big going down the 17th.

Did anybody else watch the latest gametrailers episode? It had a huge segment and single player and multiplayer and I am now even more excited for this game. The episode is online if anybody wants to watch it.Here are some screen shots from the episode (I would consider these minor spoilers, but I know some people don't want to know anything at all, so I put them in spoiler tags):

Also, Freddie Prince Jr. is the voice of Vega.~U_K~

Wow. Vega just got 2x harder to keep alive through the game.
