    If they were to make another mode, what would you want?
    Something different would be good; currently all we have is a 10-wave Horde mode with a couple of objectives (keep control of a single point, assassinate specific enemies, activate/disable the devices, etc). There're quite a few MP modes that could be done, though I dunno if we can do any kinda versus modes, since that'd require either a whole rejiggering of multiplayer canon or the ability to play as the Horde-mode enemies... I forget, did the Dead Space 2 multiplayer appeal to anybody?

    I also think that Escort missions should either be well-designed or not implemented at all, since not everyone enjoys the thought of escorting a dude through enemy territory.

    Having a co-operative progressive campaign, complete with hub areas to muck around in, would be kinda fun to do; experiment with a co-operative role-playing experience.

    Maybe a mode with more open maps and vehicular combat could be entertaining, too?

    Liara has jugs in mass effect 3.

    I just don't understand.

    Edited:

    also disappointed in the fact you couldnt bang samara in mass effect 3.

    so sad.

    What I want most from the multiplayer is some actual structured missions. Y'know, with set pieces, conversations, relevance to the story, all that jazz.

    I also know this is the least likely to be done.

    I liked it. I think a mode like it in Mass Effect would be interesting. A linear sequence of objectives, with one team of four playing as members of the N7 Special Ops, and the other team playing as a team of Cerberus Special Ops/Geth/Reapers trying to stop them. It would be neat.

    New drinking games:

    When you are playing Mass Effect, one shot every time Hackett says "Hackett out."

    When you're reading official Bioware announcements, one shot every time you see the words "artistic vision."

    I really don't care about Tali or her face. It's all bout Garrus bro and Liara. And Wrex.
    To be honest, after playing through ME1 again I don't really understand the fascination with Wrex. I vaguely remembered him being a bro but once I played through it again he didn't do a whole lot of anything except soak up damage for me. To be fair, none of the characters do much since it's more plot-driven than character driven in 1, though.

    This would be good too. A friend and I were talking about multiplayer missions be more like flashpoint missions from the Old Republic MMO Bioware did. Everyone picks a conversational option and then it randomly picks one of the players to use their choice. It would be way more fun, and it would actually make you feel like you're playing your own character in multiplayer.

    Well, the whole multiplayer was set up in a way where one side could easily shatter if they had a few bad plays thanks to the gameplay mechanics on both sides, so it was a sort of insane experience.

    From what I played of it though, it was pretty fun, even if it was sort of tied onto the main game half-heartedly.

    Yeah, it'd be neat. Wouldn't have to be tied down by tons of previous choices either since each mission could be self-contained. So you could easily script out 3 "different" missions, then mix and match them based on how the conversation options are chosen to dynamically change the level.

    Wouldn't be as difficult as the SP since, as I said, the missions are self-contained episodes.

    If only there were mod tools; something like Sven Coop for Mass Effect would be awesome.

    Or, some dude plays Shepard, and does the talking and shit, and two other dudes take up the place of your squadmates

    I know this sounds really nit-picky, but does it bother anyone else that some of the squad members just wear oxygen masks sometimes? I see them out in fucking space or on some molten planet with nothing but a dinky mask, the rest of their face should be melting/freezing the fuck off, shouldn't it? You don't go out in space just because there isn't any air, space is really fucking cold.

    Ahahahaha there's one guy whose so convinced that the PAX panel totally means the people who liked the ending are the majority without any proof, so he's going around every thread in BSN going off about stuff along the lines off "PRO ENDER TERRITORY PRO ENDER TERRITORY END OF RETAKE MOVEMENT GO BACK TO YOUR HIVEMIND RETAKERS" while not listening to anyone when he gets called out and instead responding with nonsensical logic before going "RETAKERS PWNED WITH LOGIC MOVEMENT IS GASP OF DYING DOG"

    It's hilarious yet infuriating.

    Space doesn't have a temperature. Only matter and radiation can have temperature. The problem with a vacuum, as I understand it, is that there's no way for body heat to dissipate. In other words, body heat dissipates in an atmosphere by your shit bumping into the atmosphere's shit and transferring energy to an external system. In a vacuum, there's nothing for your shit to interact with, so you just continually build up more and more body heat and die.

    This is the same reason that, if you store hot coffee in a vacuum-sealed container, the coffee will stay hot.

    Wow, played drellguard on a bronze match. There were two guys discussing in the microphone, me not having one on xbawks couldn't speak to them. They said this(I'm the only vanguard in the group)
    "This vanguard is fucking great, too bad he's such an asshole"
    The only thing I did was carry the entire team hard. Also I went down once and they said " Don't pick him up " but when I ressed myself and went to ress them they said " pick me up you fucking asshole ".
    Some people are just jealous, hilarious game nonetheless.

    But as we all know, space is not a vacuum. There are plenty of particles in space to bump into your body and absorb energy. It's just not as dense as an atmosphere. Also, as far as I'm aware, most particles radiate energy anyways, even it doesn't transfer to another particle directly.

    Also, space is literally bathed in radiation...everywhere, practically. If light from stars can reach it, then microwaves, ultraviolet, and gamma rays are all bombarding the area. So just being outside a spaceship and being able to see a star would mean that your body is being hit with tons of very high energy waves that can fry you near instantly.

    If these things didn't matter, why would astronauts have to wear a space suit on the moon? The moon has no atmosphere, so your body should be retaining its heat.

    There was maybe 6 months between ME2 and ME3, I don't think tit size increases that much in such a short time

    Protheans weren't what I'd expected, and although Javik is an awesome character, his race disappointed by not being very mysterious or different at all. I liked it when the only image in my head were the Prothean statues in Ilos, when they were more like Forerunners in Halo.

    Either way Protheans and their cities and technologies and culture is still interesting, I think.

    Then what was the point of Arrival? Shepard delays the Reapers, sure, but he gets thrown in space jail for an equally long amount of time. Nobody prepares and nothing gets done, so it was entirely useless to the overall plot.

    Ok, my point still stands that you shouldn't be able to go out in space with just a mask. At the very least the radiation should kill you near instantly. Also, even if EVA foam/suits still regulate internal temperatures, would it still be effective if your head was exposed?
