    Conrad was my favorite character since ME2. No stupid personal issues, no getting Shepard to solve all of his stupid fucking problems. Conrad was like the only dude in the franchise aside from (Paragon) Shepard who legitimately wanted to help other people, with no personal stake in it.

    Think about it. In ME1, if you Paragon him, he admits that he just wants to help out Humanity and eventually goes back to Earth to do his part.

    In ME2, despite the crazy obsession, his sidequest is all about him trying to help someone else. None of this "oh Shepard I'm in trouble, give me a hand" bullshit. He's like "I want to be like you and make the galaxy a better place," and finishing his little quest, Paragon or Renegade, makes him feel like a hero.

    In ME3, he either takes a fucking bullet for you or ends up helping refugees and/or doing research for the war effort for no other reason than that he wants to help out, no personal stake involved.

    And then, to top it all off in the end, if he's still alive he just shoots the shit with you like a regular guy.


    Conrad is a god damn hero.
    he was the only one to see the removal of unlimited in-gun cooling from me1 to 2 as a step back

    I am extremely saddened by bioware.

    The mass effect franchise had the opportunity to be the best gaming trilogy to date, but they go ahead and fuck it up.

    Could they not take a year, hire better writers, get some better play testers, and release the game of the decade?

    I thought Kaidan was meant to be the proper virmire survivor if you chose Femshep.

    or perhaps simply ask someone who isn't so deeply entrenched in the development to give the plot a once-over without talking about this "artistic integrity" as though those words mean anything

    there are these things called editors

    they are very useful

    i know a guy hes really good ill give them his number

    I can't tell if its EA's fault or biowares

    Did EA rush them? Or did bioware get stupid?

    You can't really blame EA for this. If Bioware were rushed they could have ended it on a more traditional note.

    It was Bioware who decided to stick their heads up their own asses and call whatever they found "art."

    I just thought of something: at the end, how does shepard leap into the space magic beam for synthesis, as the citadel isnt rotating so there would be very little to none gravity, and even if it was the gravity would be to the arms of the citadel, not the centre

    The ending was rushed as fuck and littered with plot holes. There are cars driving around in the background of the Citadel, and technically the mass effect fields are off on the outside where Shepard is so there's no oxygen for him to breathe either.

    Actually I'm pretty sure Casey Hudson is pretty much solely responsible for the disaster of an ending, not EA or Bioware.

    Nope. Hudson wanted a "high level" (lawls, it's been fucking and shooting on ship named "the fuck'n'shootmobile for three games but let's get all philosophical and meta an shit) transformative ending that left canon open. Walters is the one responsible for those endings being fuck awful and making zero sense.

    They're both to blame. Hudson is a great concepter and adjudicator, but he's said himself he sucks at writing. The less said about Walters' continual dick-in-eye of the franchise since the beginning the better.

    Started playing as Infiltrator for the first time.
    I can't believe I ignored this class for so long, it is an amazingly fun class to play. Granted, I only have the basic characters for the class unlocked, but here is hoping my next premium spectre crate will have the Geth in it.

    I don't really want to accept hear-say so easily, and I don't want to single-out Casey Hudson. Casey Hudson pretty much created the franchise, after all, and you can't blame one person in a team. It's the team's responsibility to pick up slack and criticize themselves. That's why people work in teams. You can say that only Hudson is to blame, but that's like saying only Lucas was to blame for the Star Wars prequels when he was surrounded by producers who neglected to mention that Phantom Menace was a piece of shit before the first screening of the finished film.

    In the end, someone should have spoken up, and loudly at that.

    I'm quickly burning out on the multiplayer.

    Which is ironic, because I'm burning out trying to make things fun again by unlocking new classes.

    They're just so rare. 30 spectre packs in, and only Batarians. Considering each spectre pack is 2 silver matches, and each silver match is 20 minutes... My current unlock rate is 10 hours of playtime per Batarian.

    As far as I know that helmet isn't even modeled in-game, its just in the pre-rendered cutscene. So no you won't be able to get it through coalesced editing.

    My issue isn't that the classes are rare, it's that it doesn't take very long to get bored of a class. If you play a class for a couple hours, provided you're playing Silver or Gold, you'll probably have it maxed-out and you'll know the ins and the outs of the class. It's just boring because it's the same stuff every game, and with Gold and Silver, you basically can't play certain classes, otherwise you'll die.

    The multiplayer is just kind of stale. There's not enough variety in the objectives or the enemy types to really make it fun after a month or two.

    Other than the artstyle and the FemShep <3 Garrus, I'm guessing this comic was created made by a girl.

    I was reading Mass Effect: Evolution the other day (as in today) and I was wondering what's with the sudden transition from TIM's glowing blue eyes to brown? Was that effect from the artifact temporary or what? I don't have the book with me, but this happens before TIM and Eve meet Ben (I think).

    Only if you imported a saved game by saving Ashley, then Kaidan doesn't exist.
