    boning robots of your dead friends is bad
    that's not okay
    So if you wanted to bang a girl bad, then she died and you could build a robot in her likeness and bang it without consequence you wouldn't do it?

    without any bullshit like Day 1 DLC (unless it's cosmetics that're developed when the art devs have little else to do)
    Devs have said Day 1 DLC is usually a result of work while the game is going gold. They have a lot of time for the certification and manufacturing to happen before release date too.

    So instead of sitting on there arse they make more content, it's finished in time for release and so they drop it straight away. I prefer that to developers finishing some nice shiny content and then waiting 3 months to release it because they don't want people to be mad it's 'Day 1 DLC'. Specially considering by then you've probably finished with that game and moved on. To me Javic seems they knew they were gonna add him, but they hadn't finished and wanted to release on time so they just kept him back as DLC. Nothing wrong with that in my eyes. I like character DLC more than mission pack DLC.

    However, preorder bonus DLC and aesthetic DLC are cheap attempts at more money and I'm totally against them.

    Wow this has got to be the most annoying fucking thing in this game.


    Trying to target that fucking Reaper on Rannoch. Who the hell thought that would be a good idea? Make a single tiny mistake and you lose a good 10 minutes of your life. You have to be in constant motion and you only get a nanosecond to stop and target before the fucking thing fires and you need to start running again. Fuck this.

    Found the creator, It's already been sold (dammit). He said he might make more at some point

    Also have anyone seen anything similar, or like cuff links. Going to get a suit for going out of school (unsure how to translate that properly) and some ME stuff would be cool

    In phase 1, the laser tilts slightly more to the left, so roll right to avoid it easier. Phase 2 it tilts to the right, so roll left. Phase 3 it alternates between right and left, and after that just hold down the trigger and don't move. (Might have opposite directions than they actually are, so if I'm wrong just reverse the directions.)

    This guy gives an idea of an alternative ending for ME3 instead of the nonsense we were given.

    Instead of    we kill u b4 syntetics cn kill u    he explains something that would've made sense. To me, anyway.

    Before anyone pull their hair out figuring how to back port facecodes from ME2/3 to ME1 without using any external program (I know I did), here's some faces.

    Mass Effect 1 usable facecodes (Scars don't count here, make yourself free to choose one):

    Adrian: 242.TKB.8G6.G11.D9V.9AC.LCI.6NG.J8B.1F2.A56.7



    Adriana: 731.1FI.G81.M89.EG1.1BQ.7LJ.811.RF6.FA7.246.372



    How to backport facecodes? The first slider is always 1, so use your mouse to go the next slider by clicking on the left or right buttons. Counting positions goes like this:
    <|123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVW|>

    It was a bit - the original plan was this: The Reapers were created to try and figure out a way to prevent dark matter from enveloping the galaxy which was caused by overuse of Element Zero. Whilst they did this, they regularly purged the galaxy of advanced civilisations to prevent them from increasing the amount of Eezo they used - they harvested civilisations that used it, or were close to using it so that they harvested civilisations that had an understanding of the mass effect, thus increasing their knowledge of the mass effect, whilst simultaneously preventing them from accelerating the amount of dark energy in the galaxy.

    Apparently in the games timeline, they were supposed to have ran out of time, and needed a species whose DNA was varied enough to help organics evolve and survive and hopefully solve the dark matter problem, in this case humans - the choice at the end therefore was supposed to be either Shepard destroys the Reapers and hope that organics can solve the problem themselves, or sacrifice humanity.

    At least in its current form, there is room for hopeful conjecture. The original ending is seriously bleak - sacrifice everything you were fighting for, or hope that the current cycle could solve a problem that an uh... 'organisation' after 37 million years could not

    He's for my renegade playthrough of the series. I played Mass Effect 1 originally before I knew renegade Shepard was much more entertaining than a Shepard who makes literally every honorable decision. I'm serious, I actually did that.

    It's not as if it doesn't have plot holes. Why is "reaping" the best way to solve the dark energy problem?

    The best way to solve a big, sciency problem like this, is to take the galaxy's best physicists, and put them in a room with a chalk-board.

    Like, maybe if the reapers were an intergalactic science squad, which travels from galaxy to galaxy, collecting the best scientists and putting them to work on the dark energy problem. There's no reason that the other galaxies wouldn't also have the dark energy problem. And reapers clearly have ability to travel outside of the galaxy, considering they were just hanging out in the void before Mass Effect 3, and came back in like a year.

    This would require 0% reaping.

    There's still that hint of self sacrifice. I hate the ending, but I do see the logic in it. Partly.

       Reapers stop organic races from developing to the point where they can create synthetics that could erase them- synthetics don't evolve the way organic life does, if synthetics go extinct, and all organic life is expunged, trillions of beings will be lost for no end. However, outright killing people would be anathema to the Reaper plan, so they harvest them and add them to the Reaper collective, which is a "perfect" melding of organic and inorganic life. As for why the Reapers don't intervene and stop synthetic life from uprising in the first place, I guess they feel like killing synthetics would simply be another form of genocide. Sort of altruistic, but still pretty retarded of an explanation.   

    Do we still have to use spoiler tags for ME3's ending? Even people that have never played the series that I know, know the ending.

    Anyone else would have rather had the Reapers not have a reason to wipe out life?

    It would keep Reapers as the evil thing is space and make people think as to why they have been wiping out life for 1 Billion years.

    I still think the best ending idea would've been a mixture of the dark energy and "beyond comprehension' thing. Reapers want to stop the whole galactic collapse (it threatens them, too), but they have other reasons that simply aren't expressible to life as is. It transcends our understanding. Though, I suppose that's a copout, too.

    they need to minimize the amount of eezo being used or else everybody dies. plus Reapers are formed from thousands upon thousands of individuals from races far more advanced than the cycle we see, of which there were bound to be a least one or two hundred people at the top of their fields, so I don't think just getting some physicists is going to boost their processing capabilty a whole lot when you've got an entire species comprised of gigantic machines with the combined intelligence of a metric-fucktonne of people (each one presumably with the knowlege of the others in there, meaning you've got a few thousand trained physicists in a single conscience) working quite literally at all hours on this problem

    See, the theory is still bad. It relies on a single core principle: synthetic life will wipe out organic life. There is very little evidence for this. The protheans had a bad run-in with AI, but they survived it. The Geth can ally with the Quarians. EDI is totally harmless when unshackled.

    Overall, it's a false method based on false assumptions. Even if synthetic life WERE inevitably going to wipe out organic life, "reaping" wouldn't be the way to solve it. Imagine if the council enforced it's 'no AI' laws by declaring total war on anybody who made an AI. Problem solved. The Protheans weren't gonna make the AI mistake again--their cycle was safe. But they were reaped anyway, for no reason.

    Edited:

    they need to minimize the amount of eezo being used or else everybody dies. plus Reapers are formed from thousands upon thousands of individuals from races far more advanced than the cycle we see, of which there were bound to be a least one or two hundred people at the top of their fields, so I don't think just getting some physicists is going to boost their processing capabilty a whole lot when you've got an entire species comprised of gigantic machines with the combined intelligence of a metric-fucktonne of people (each one presumably with the knowlege of the others in there, meaning you've got a few thousand trained physicists in a single conscience) working quite literally at all hours on this problem
    You're assuming that when you turn somebody into a husk, or melt them into goo, you get to keep their knowledge and abilities. I'm pretty sure you don't.

    You see, knowledge is totally independent from DNA. The human genome contains about 800 megabytes of data. The human brain, however, has been approximated in the terabyte range. This is because DNA doesn't tell us how good we'll be at science. It simply sets up a framework for learning. What you do with that framework determines how good you'll be at science.

    When you melt someone into DNA goo, you lose everything they know, and everything that made them a scientist. Albert Einstein had 99.9% the same DNA as James Vega. Absorbing Vega's DNA doesn't make you good at science.
