    Yeah but Synth judging by your taste in movies if you despise it with you're entire being I'll probably walk out entertained :P

    On what basis? My view of Battle: Los Angeles as being not terribly memorable? Me thinking of Avatar as being United Fruit/Belgian Congo in space rather than Pochohantas in space? As of late, I haven't really said much about my taste in movies.

    But I'll take that wager. You can spend money on the film, actively regret it afterwards, while I'll skip on watching yet another horrid video game adaptation and spend $7 to $9 on something useful, like groceries. :P

    How can you say with 100% certainty that it's going to be bad? It's not like Legendary has a terrible track record...

    Given that none of us can say anything about the film with 100% certainty, I'm pretty confident that the treatment of it will be quite poor overall, especially given recent video game adaptations from Hollywood and particularly when you consider part of the Mass Effect appeal is in crafting your own version of the protagaonist, something a film obviously cannot do, but also the fact that the alternative--make a movie about the First Contact War--personally does not interest me (it's just part of the ME mythos I don't find as interesting, YMMV). For me, that's three big strikes against. But you're correct--it's a "in all likelihood" scenario.

    You'll notice I haven't said anything about the mini-series (?) that's supposed to exist seperately. I actually have a bit more hope for that, personally.

    You know what your OP could use?

    That lovely passage crafted months ago about Shepard being terrorized by a very controlling Tali.

    I still get a kick out of that.

    The first book in the series was good and I think would make a good movie. The settings wouldn't be expensive to film and it had a lot of scenes that were all humans. It's also before the games so we wouldn't have to have the movie deal with Shepard at all.

    The movie could be done well especially if they avoid dealing with Shepard. Not that I have high hopes, but I have good ideas of where it could go and how it could be done to be a good movie and not just a cash in on the name ala Tomb Raider or Max Payne.

    Regarding that picture at the top of the page:

    I really don't like the crewman's uniform. The officer's dress, or even the science uniform, is way better.

    I think we can all agree that orange getup looks really weird, though.

    One weird consequence of the ME3 trailers thusfar is that apparently, on Earth, humans basically wear the same thing they wear now (or, at least, anchormen and women do).

    Versus the weird space-tuxedo that's standard everywhere else.

    Woot! 360 collectors edition pre-ordered!

    Fun fact: Only the second "collector's edition" I've ever purchased for a game. I got the Fallout 3 lunchbox/bobblehead/art book thing.

    This one, of course, will be leagues better than the FO one.

    I don't think I've ever bought a collector's edition game before. And I've certainly never pre-ordered a game more than a month in advance.

    I don't think I'm going to submit to Origin atm. I held out on Steam until it didn't suck and I'm going to do the same here. And in that mind has there been any word on a boxed collectors edition. As long as it doesn't require Origin I'd be all for that.
