    I think this is my favorite place in the game;
    The beautiful texture of rain, the music, the cars outside - a product of fiction, yet they felt so natural - the city itself. The colors, the mood of it all.
    Lovely place.
    I wonder if I could get a loop of that scene. Would make one hell of a dreamscape background.

    And I'm on the Citadel now listening to those Blasto 6 previews. I want an Elcor squadmate.

    Bubin, the Elcor: Badassfully. This is my mates car. We just had it paid off.
    Blasto: This one hopes you have insurance.


    Badassfully. Hey, you're hurting him.

    Badassfully. You better talk. I can't hold him back.

    Badassfully. Dammit. What the hell was that. You are out of control.

    Badassfully. You are paying for the car.

    Blasto: Has a Prothean descended from heaven? Because This One would like to Enkindle that.
    Bubin: Badassfully. Hey, man, that's my sister.

    The Elcor starts every sentence with "Badassfully." Best squadmate ever. I bet he's a total renegade.

    Edited:

    "Spawn of questionable parentage." The Hanar equivalent of "son of a bitch."

    Edited:

    Oh dear god that's fucking BRILLIANT

    "You are standing on flammable material. This One has no choice...

    but to enkindle this."

    Why is Mordin's voice different? Could they not get the same VA they had in 2 or is it just my imagination?

    IMDB and the Mass Effect Wiki both say that there was a different voice actor in 3. Why? My limited search didn't say, although there is speculation about money, or Bioware just not contacting the original actor.

    He also narrated the massive pillow-fight episode of Community.

    It was amazing.

    He is what I like to call, "an underrated actor" like that Asian guy who was the antagonist in Big Trouble in Little China.

    I love how it takes 2 seconds for the bullet to hit him after he fires.

    Also, that highly exaggerated long windup backhand.

    (Still liked the video though.)

    Regarding ME2: I'm playing paragon yet still receiving renegade points when I believe I'm making the correct paragon choices. I recently referred to the morality guide on the mass effect wiki and I did indeed make the correct choices, then I scrolled further down to discover that you get paragon and renegade points for completing certain missions regardless of the choices you made.

    Can someone explain what the fuck?

    I don't think there is an explanation.

    What the fuck? is probably the best explanation you will get. I was actually thinking about this today. I've been playing a game full paragon yet I'm still getting renegade just for being alive.

    I spent the last two weeks playing through Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, and now that I've finished them I decided Origin was worth playing ME3.

    Except it's been "Installing..." for half an hour.
    Is this a bug? Is it supposed to take forever to install?

    Origin won't let me exit it, either, because ME3 hasn't finished installing.

    IIRC, downloading the game is included in the "installing" step.

    But I just spent all night downloading the game. It took two hours and now "Installing..." has lasted another hour.

    Origin support forums say to close firewalls, so I did, but they did nothing.

    Someone else had this problem but with a Tomb Raider game, and the advice was to end the DXSetup process. That too did nothing.

    It took me three attempts for Origin to properly install ME3.

    Have fun.

    It's why you can earn generic Reputation points in ME3. The team wanted certain actions to make you famous one way or another without necessarily being attached to a moral choice. Like the Thresher Maw fight in Grunt's loyalty mission: killing it is considered a big deal and to reflect the boost to Shepard's fame, doing so gave +15 Paragon and Renegade points no matter what your alignment.

    Unfortunately, this wasn't explained well (if at all) at the time and I think having points in the opposite reputation bar to yours either hindered Shepard in dialogue or just threw players off. So now when you do anything in ME3 similar to that Thresher Maw kill, you gain neutral Reputation and the unified bar increases while keeping your current Paragon-Renegade balance.
