    Is it weird that I am looking forward to the music in ME3? I can't think of many other games where I do this.

    The music in the ME series elevates the games to an even higher level. I wish more games would focus more on music and sound design like Bioware has done with this franchise

    The coolest part of the suicide mission was when the above song started and the endgame unraveled

    Chills, man

    I know many people want this theme or that theme to make a return...but you all should have full faith in Clint Mansell. The score is going to be better than anything you could imagine. I promise.

    I don't really doubt that, but considering the high praise the music from the first two games received, to switch composers for the climactic conclusion to the series seems odd to me.

    There better be some Faunts, at the very least.

    I believe was Jack Wall, the composer and his company Wall of Sound that decided to not to work on ME3. Clint Mansell, however is not a downgrade, and the only nervousness is not knowing how they will handle the big themes. Copyright isn't an issue, I would think, but what is Mansell's own desire to use other people's music/his own knowledge of the previous game's themes, how big of a fan he was. I think BioWare is aware, though, of how much people think of the music as a part of the series, so I think that they'd want to hat tip to the previous games.

    If they did use M4 (Part 2) again, it'd be awesome if they made a theme out of it for a space battle. Also some sort of credits song, Faunts preferable.

    I got infracted the last time I brought weird Tali shit from the outer-internets into this thread so I won't post links or a quote or anything; but I will say that I read a post where a guy calculated the volume of Tali's spacesuit helmet, then divided that quantity by the average volume of one of his own ejaculations (which he also calculated) to provide a number of the amount of times he would have to masturbate to literally drown Tali in semen.

    as a side note, kasumi should be romanceable in ME3. she's the best-adjusted person in the entire ME universe aside from the asari bartender.

    Hmm. That's something you don't hear of often. Excuse me while I head off for a moment my garden shed with a shotgun, I believe there's a ceiling in there that need to be splatter painted with red and pink chunks.




    ....

    Changing gears; I hope you can go back to planets from the first game. Feros and Noveria would be a trip.

    This is based, of course, on the assumption that quarians don't use semen as an oxygen processing membrane in the first place.

    Her suit could already be full of man juice and we'd just never know.

    You're joking, right? Please tell me you're joking.

    I know, right? There's no way to really know that without having a decent estimate of the volume of Tali's head. And even then, you're totally discounting the decently non-zero possibility that the compound in question would either A) cause a fatal allergic reaction, B) be the carrier of an infectious disease, or C) contain something poisonous to Quarians, all of which could kill her before she drowns. What an idiot.

    ...that's what you guys are freaked out about, right?

    And why is he not infracted again?

    On the other hand I love Mass Effect 2 so much that, having already played through it as paragon twice, I am starting to consider doing a full playthrough of ME1 -> ME2 as paragon just because I prefer the voice of femshep to that of stubbleshep.

    In other news, I've calculated the number of pages that a Mass Effect thread can go after the introduction of Tali squick before said thread at least temporarily devotes itself to Tali squick.

    It's a really low number.

    Wow, I'm playing back through ME and it's amazing how many potential McGuffins they've got set up on worlds in the exploration sections.

    Crypt worlds, a planet that might be a supercomputer, one that conspiracy theorists think is made completely out of nanomachines, etc.

    They did a lot of groundwork for 3 in 1.

    On that subject, I had to give up my female Shepard run 'cuz every time I stormed into cover at the Lazarus Base I'd think "Dang that lady has a sweet rear end" and then realize it was my rear end and the weirdness would overwhelm me.

    So, back we go to buzz-cut, stubbled male Shepard. Who definitely does NOT have a sweet rear end.

    Well, now you've got me listening to the ME2 soundtrack on my Ipod. There's a guy a couple of rows over who looks (and acts, the crabby old geezer) suspiciously Batarian, and I need all of my self-discipline to not go over and punch him in the face.

    I got all nostalgic for ME1 when we were talking about it the other day and started it up again. I've found that it is really boring now.

    I guess you can't go home again. I'm glad to have Wrex again, at least.

    I also noticed that Tali sounds really different. Her actress improved quite a bit.

    my very first playthrough of ME1 was 70 hours, so i was pretty sure i didn't miss anything. :P

    Best Dialogue is Captain Ayala: (to Miranda) "Does Cerberus let you whore around in your underwear or do you always dress like that ?"

    So I'm thinking about another playthrough of ME2 and I was thinking about romancing Tali because she's soooooo sweet and cute and I just want to hug her and neeeeeeeever let go.

    So I got to thinking that after all this is done, what if she doesn't love me enough to not leave? So I think I'm going to get her exiled so she has nowhere else to go. Then we can be happy together on the Normandy and spend the rest of our lives together without her ever having to give a single thought to going back "home."

    Is this a good idea?

    What if she decides she likes Garrus better? Or Mordin, I mean Mordin mentions a history of accidentally stealing girls.

    You'd better get absolutely everyone else killed. Just to be safe.
