Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

In the close future, there is only war, and spilling drinks on the Citadel.[Mass Effect]

Mass Effect is pretty cool, yah? A movie that you play, making loads of choices that determine the flow of the narrative.

The third game is what we're all about these days.

But there were two games before.

and

The third game brought in multiplayer, which you can find your fellow STG or N7 special ops, or even now Geth and Batarian ex-pats looking to join the fight, here.

There is also Mom Effect, which will never make it past ME2 but here she is.

And as always, our theme song, which should always be sung during drunken, late night multi matches-

    Oh, here it is.

    Edit: I unlocked an Krogan Battlemaster last night! Now I pretty much always feel like this:


    Oh, and I don't know if this was linked in the last thread, but there were some multi updates yesterday:

    Mom: What a rude host. Sitting there sipping a drink without offering me anything.

    speed did you explain to Mama Shep that TIM can't offer her a drink because they are basically on the phone with eachother?

    I've run into a new class of pub milker. Instead of simply staying afk at spawn, which worked for them on the original maps, they now will run to some far corner of the map, take cover in a tiny cubby-hole, and wait.

    I got excited when I saw Asari Adept in my first Resurgance pack until I realised it was just the vanilla variant.

    The Batarian sentinel is pretty fun.

    So far all the new classes I've played are pretty fucking great.

    I also love that blade armour isn't just tech armour with spikes, no, it fucking straight up attaches a bunch of sharp, metal blades to your armour.

    Batarians don't fuck around.

    I just finished reading all of Mom Effect. I hope she sticks it out to the end and survives the suicide mission. She's hilarious.

    Also, what builds are people using for KroGuards and Gethgineers?

    There is no way she is going to survive the suicide mission, she refuses to do sidequests

    Got the Asari Justicar last night....not sure what to do with her.

    Bubble with warp at the end, got it. But with what? Pull? Reave?

    Also, we're trying to effectively work out the best bubble strategy.

  • ButtersButters A glass of some milks Registered User regular
    Either bubble or reave should be able to detonate biotic explosions but it wasn't very reliable for me. I need to figure her out too.

    Not doing any loyalty missions? Not upgrading anything? Not unfreezing Grunt or Legion? You are going to lose Jack, Tali and Thane before the mission starts. You're sure to lose your tech specialist. Sure to lose one person to the seeker swarms. Almost sure to lose your fire team leader unless you pick Miranda. Yeah, there's no surviving that no matter your assignments.

    One the other hand, ME2 might be one hell of a short game if you head to the derelict reaper as soon as possible (might never even recruit Thane, Samara or Tali).

    I could see her doing Kasumi's sidequest, and maybe Zaeed since he's all about the cash.

    EDIT: Maybe even Garrus, since he just wants to go kill a dude.

    Hell depending on how much she dislikes Jack she might even go along with that one, blowing up a building seems up her alley.

    The second half of ME1 gets way more exciting so if you like it now you're in for some fun. Then ME2 stays exciting wire-to-wire all while employing a superior combat system.

    Krogan Facesmashing Murdertrain is just the tits.

    I don't even like melee builds. And I'll try to jump on my fungineer for crowd control, but I'll just glance at all 15 feet of him and it's like, all aboard the murder train, I'll be your conductor for the evening.

    Also, we're trying to effectively work out the best bubble strategy.

    Important thing to remember is that reave only detonates if they're already inside the bubble. So it's a question of setting it up at a choke point and reaving anyone that steps in the circle. Or be badass and reave a few enemies, run up to them and bubble, setting off a chain of biosplosions on each.

    I've found bubble trap works really well against geth primes, since they keep spawning turrets that can be detonated.

    Got KroVan in my Commendation pack.

    I mean, I'm not mad, but that was probably the one I wanted the least. I was totally looking forward to the Justicar or Gethfiltrator.

  • ButtersButters A glass of some milks Registered User regular
    Yeah the annoying thing about those types of biotic combos is they only work on weaker enemies. I think at least with grenade combos you can reave armored targets and then toss cluster or lift grenade and get a detonation on a direct hit.

    When I was messing around with drell adept last night in pubs vanguards were setting off explosions by charging reaved banshees/brutes/primes/whatever

    It's a pretty solid way to deal with bigger enemies

    Still want to try drell vanguard someday

    If experience with pubbie drellguards is any indication, it's a lot like being the incompetent NPC you're supposed to protect on escort missions in single player RPGs, charging into the midst of certain death and needing rescue every 5 seconds

    Also someone explain to me what I'm supposed to be doing as an asari vanguard

    I went with the stasis/charge upgrades that give me a chance of the power not using a cooldown but it happens infrequently enough to not plan anything around it

    She just feels like a mix of powers that don't really gel together that well, also lift grenades are dookie
