    my mom thinks it's stupid that she has to pay for weapons and armor, she thinks people should just give them to her since she's trying to save the day

    it's always funny to me when she thinks something that gamers/mass effect fans also think

    y'know, I kinda agree
    "I'm Commander Shepard. I saved the Citadel. Give me your best fucking gear, so I can save your fucking arses!"

    everyone agrees

    people have been saying this for well over a decade now

    mordin had a line in 2 about how the STG didn't have to pay for their own equipment

    I'm terrible at sniper rifles.

    It's why I mostly stick with asari adept/turian sentinel.

    Also does it make me crazy that even though I have a revenant X and only a phaeston VI i like the phaeston better?

    It's so much lighter and more accurate when not fired from cover. And really my turian exists to chain lightning the world, his machine gun just gets used while waiting on another overload cooldown.

    The good news is you don't have to headshot with most of them

    body shots are enough when you're dealing enough damage (or are shooting fast enough)

    @SpeedRacer

    who exactly does your mom believe Liara did shrooms with in college

    Udina

    My first reaction was that Udina and Liara couldn't have gone to college because of the disparity in age

    but then I realized Udina probably isn't that much younger than Liara at this point, and Asari probably start higher education somewhat later than humans since they take longer to mature

    canon

    really

    I would put Liara as twice Udina's age

    Remember that humans in Me1 live to between 120-140 thanks to medical advances

    Udina could well be significantly older than he looks

    oh I know

    that's all I do, it's all I can do, and I have to make them stand still to do that


    that's one of the reasons the valiant is so great for me, because I have a bad habit of missing with the first shot

    and then maybe the second shot


    but if I were any good then


    then

    I named my turian Electro and dress him exclusively in bright green + yellow for just this reason. Though I tend to use the chain overload as a way to get enemies to hold still for a second or so while I shoot them.

    Yeah, that's why it's all about the Salarian Infiltrator for me. The shield drain makes it possible for me to actually snipe those motherfuckers.

    Hackett looks like Zaeed

    and Zaeed is also supposedly in his 40's though that number is highly suspect
