omni tool universal translator
Bit of a cheap explanation but eh, better then having to read subtitles I guess.
So what about creatures that don't have omni-tools - let's say a hanar or a poor vorcha - how do they understand Shepard?
I loved Freespace 2 because it had aliens speaking their own language with a unique sound and rhythm which then got dubbed over by a rough machine translation, made the game much more immersive than english spoken with an alien 'accent'.
They have a trade language (i think).
Omni tools are like they equivalent of the telephone in ME. They are computers, flashlights, cameras, translators, swords for some reason, and whatever else you want a holographic arm computer to be. I mean telephone as in if you don't have one then you probably aren't encountering many aliens/ cant count to 9.
I mean just look at it. I shelled out £60 for the collector's edition and this blatant rubbish even has EA's shitgoblin logo stamped on it. It's like someone over there hates me.
And this happens the same day Origin disappears from my list of Steam shortcuts.
Holy dicks I'm late
Picture 1: I own the N7 Collector's Edition of Mass Effect 3.
Picture 2: EA disagrees and thinks I'm either a new purchaser or that I didn't buy Mass Effect 3 at all despite the fact that I launched it from Origin as I have done since it came out in March.
This is just more bullshit I've had to put up with from EA on top of constantly losing connection to servers or not being able to join them at all.
Does anyone have noticed the Pillar of Autumn making a brief appearance in the background during Mass Effect 2 suicide mission?
Well we're mining asteroids by 2020 so we're on track to mine Charon.
Gotta love game devs making easter eggs of other games
Just looks like a smudge, But yeah, i could see that being Pillar of Autumn
Hold the fucking phone
The Forunners were early Protheans and the Flood was a bioweapon created by The Reapers (Flood are mentioned to be from outside the galaxy in one of the novels, i know this shit)
Halo and the other installations were prototype Crucibles or using the same tech
Javik said that the galaxy was united under a strong Prothean rule in his cycle
Several spicies united in a civilization = Covenant
Grunt = Volus
Engineer = Hanar
Elite = Turian
Parts of Mass Effect were inspired by Halo, yes, but engineers actually inspired the keepers and not Hanar.
Don't know 'bout the others, but the Forerunners and the Protheans have p. much identical architecture. Elder races is however a fiction stereotype.
Y inspired by B is nothing new, hell, half the design of Halo CE were near-carbon copy of Aliens.
I just never made the connection before. Don't know why. I already know way to much about both series
Isn't Mass Effect 1 filled to the brim with Halo references though?
Ok EA, what the shit. Unable to authorize listed DLC: From Ashes; so I can't play. AAARGH.
Javik is starting in an hour, for now playing Skyrim to warm up.
Might be a response to the sales figures though; as of a week and a half ago the game has "only" sold 1.5 million units worldwide.
Later today, I'll post pictures of my N7 Hoody that finally arrived here (after a lot of legal loopholes).
Anybody figure out what the hell the point of the second barrel on almost all the guns is?
