    Even more heartless, to the nth degree, would be to double/double-cross Tali with Liara. The thought alone is enough to drive one to nerd-despair.

    Get some fucking culture in you.



    however, "bonking" is something you do to someone in TF2. Boink is more acceptable as a sexual slang.

    Argh - do we have to do this again? bonk is more commonly used this side of the atlantic for sexual intercourse than "boink". who cares.

    What I want to know re: LOTSB bonking:
    what happens if you do LotSB before the suicide mission? Can you do Liara, then bonk Miranda before teh suicide mission?

    That's what I'm going for. We'll see if it works.

    Let us know how it goes. Personally I couldn't be unfaithful to Liara after this intense dlc. But... in theory you could:
    tell Miranda you want to bonk her. Dump her for Liara (whom you've already bonked in ME1), bonk Liara, then go back to Miranda and get funky in the engineering space before the suicide mission.
    Just had the "we're totally going to do it later" conversation.

    I think we're a go.

    I only really dislike the Turian anyway. I enjoy telling him off (and disconnecting on him) and there's no chance to get more of that in the future if I murder him :(

    There's no chance of getting this either.

    Yep.

    It's a term very rarely used these days, anything to keep it alive and all that.

    Anything is sexual slang. Anything. Bonk, boink, badank-a-donk, it's all pretty clear from context. If you know what I mean.

    One of these days I'm going to have to actually find out what happens if I skip a few of these interrupts.

    IIRC if you skip one while waking up Grunt
    later in the convo you have the option of actually shooting him to convince him you're an alright dude

    You wouldn't expect it, but Jack really does have some good combat dialogue.

    "Hello, soon-to-be-dead people !"

    "Hey, there's my next group of victims !"

    And, having just brought her to Tuchanka for Grunt's loyalty mission:

    "You mean Grunt's just reaching puberty ? So he's never, um... really, never ?"

    I finally stopped myself from interrupting the Omega merc pointing me to the strippers room (femshep)

    Shepard just stares at him

    There aren't any interrupts while waking up Grunt. At least none that I've seen, and I've done that sequence twice in the past three days.

    That's not NEARLY as good as Fade's guards.

    "Shoot them! Shoot them, you lumbering mountains!"
    Shepard stares.

    "You sure you want to try it?"

    Guards look at each other. Shrug. Walk off.

    The volus watches them go, turns back to Shepard.

    "Why do I even bother?"

    Yep, there are. I didn't get this until about the fifth run.
    Just don't choose the renegade or paragon option when given the choice, and then when Grunt starts threatening you, you get a renegade interrupt which is the signal for bullet in the head time (not that it stops him, of course).

    I actually really like Shadowbroker for this. All of the options for successful resolution of a sticky situation end up with badassery occuring. Particularly the non-talky renegade option, which is straight renegade in the "whatever is expedient without being a complete asshole" way. Makes it fun to be renegade rather than feeling like a straight sociopath.

    The Renegade one is about as good. I'll paraphrase:
    You think taking a hostage is going to work on me? Just like an asari. You should really have stuck to something you know, like dancing.

    *Liara looks sideways at Shepard*

    Do you know what's going to happen, Vasir? I'm going to kill your hostage. Then, I'm going to kill you. And there's nothing you can do about it.

    I do find it kind of hilarious that Shepard can be a xenophobic weirdo yet still hit on and sleep with Asari like it's going out of style. Just like the Illusive Man in that respect.

    For some reason I kind of wish TIM's gender was related to Shepard's. Either opposite or the same; there's no real need to make him male each time (other than the financial considerations).

    No! If TIMs gender changed then it couldn't always be Martin Sheen.

    Martin Sheen would make an excellent woman.
