    People get really up in arms about things they feel are important.

    The ending to a pulp sci-fi video game series they like is deemed Important by a lot of people, apparently.

    also people talking about stasis at the end of the last thread, keep in mind stasis does absolutely nothing to armored targets, so banshees brutes ravagers primes and pyros are all immune

    Stasis bubble held the line in an early upload round in reactor today. The upload was in the reactor itself and a bubble in each entrance as they tried to breach made it cake.

    So this Infiltrator game for iOS, is it any good?

    I'm thinking I may need alternate ways of getting my ME fix and keeping my readiness up if I can't get the Xbox fixed soon

  • NerdgasmicNerdgasmic __BANNED USERS regular
    fair enough, but 10% more weapon damage or 20% more shields or whatever doesn't seem all that comparable to a fairly long-ranged, high damage attack with a large radius and no cooldown

    Really you should start off with nova, then charge, then nova again.

    My SP character is just obsessed with cool down and shield perks, so now I just nova charge er'ry day.

    Also have carnage as a secondary power for banshees. Though I make sure I charge/punch them to death so as hey die, they regret fucking with Sheperd.

    Had a great game with Retaba an Arthatch. Though I'm likely butchering their names. We 3-manned silver Reapers with only a few near-wipe experiences.

    I've got gun-envy with Retaba's Paladin though.

    no.

    Vanguards only fear Brutes, Atlases and Banshees

    I've personally charged two turrets on Silver and came out just fine so I guess it just takes skill

    8-)

    (this is a lie Vanguard takes seriously no skill you just need to mash two buttons and you can't die except for from one hit kills)

    I have no clue man. My biggest complaint with the ending is that I felt parts of it are vague.

    Also, for those looking at biotic explosions, some helpful tips on speccing them for damage.

    First, damage is based on two things: the rank of the abilities that set off the explosion and any skill talents that increase the biotic combo damage. That's it. So speccing for +power damage in the paasive doesn't add anything to the explosion damage. Also, a rank 6 throw detonatibg a rank 6 warp does a lot more damage than a rank 1 throw detonating a rank 6 warp. And vice versa.

    Second, and most interesting, is that the damage scales based on the opponent max health, so it's not static. In other words, it'll remove the same chunk of health from an Atlus on gold that it does on bronze. So it scales a ton better at higher difficulties than weapon damage does.
