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!

But then [Mass Effect] began to smell my greatness!

    I have also just finished my Renegade Engineer Insanity run. The combat drone really makes it easier, particularly the Scions who forget how to do their biotic .. blowy .. up ... thing.

    Now starting an Infiltrator off in ME1 - going to play Veteran just to make it a bit more straightforward and fun :)

    To be fair (kinda), in ME1, after getting rid of her, the council only hears from Shepard in totally ridiculous terms.
    Spoiler:

    Reports from other spectres are probably like, "Yeah, I staked out that Space Quiznos for five hours but the only krogan testicles we saw were attached," or "no, it's probably not her favorite store, but there's nothing we can do about it legally." Shepard's reports have pizazz.

    Shine on you crazy diamond.

    I really hope we meet another Spectre in ME3 and it's revealed that they all hate Shepard's guts.

    Seriously, if we don't get a hanar teammate in ME3 I'm going to kill someone. Every time we learn something new about them they seem even more awesome.

    Also, it'd look retarded. How the fuck does it take cover? When you're running does it just float faster?

    It's a very, very dumb idea. That's why it was a joke, you know ridiculing it.

    It's a representation of a non-fraction in fractional notation.

    Fractions are explicitly non-unitary.

    One of Zaeed's memories while you talk to him ends up where he or one of his teammates almost gets choked out by a hanar. Zaeed ends it with "I'll never under-estimate a hanar again"

    Common glitch. Thought they recently patched it out though.

    So nothing I can do? Good job it's only my hardcore run then, he'll really need that power on insanity.

    Went with a sentinel this time, despite being kind of 'boring' it's actually a really powerful class. It covers everything; warp for armour and barriers, overload for shields and mechs, cyroblast/throw for crowd control/environmental deaths. Plus tech armour is pretty damn good, and the power armour evolution brings your biotic and tech powers up to scratch too. 2.5 second cooldown on throw is kind of hilarious as well.

    With warp ammo as your bonus power I'd argue its probably the most powerful class in the game.

    no, my point is more general. All ships move in and out of atmospheres by using mass effect fields. Suddenly the collector ship uses liquid nitrogen? Daku is right. It looks cool.

    Uh doesn't the normandy use both? Mass Effect fields to specific systems and regular fuel for flight within systems?

    I thought they used Mass Effect fields to counter the effects of gravity, and chemical engines for actually moving around atmosphere.
