    Spoiler:

    I wouldn't say it makes me want to avoid all Bioware games. In fact I'm thinking about playing through Dragon Age 1 and 2 again.

    But it certainly sours the taste of repeated Mass Effect playthroughs - which is something I did 10+ times with ME2.

    Yeah I hated DA2 but it didn't make me feel bitter or antagonistic to Bioware at all - just a bunch of different design decisions I didn't like combined with too little cooking. The ending to ME3 has left me feeling like I don't want to bother being "invested" in any of Biowares games again. Even if the feeling is utterly irrational (because ME3 was a truly great game in every single aspect that mattered before the end), I can understand where your perspective comes from because I share it as well.

    Someone else named the character, knowing everyone would assume some lad named Patrick did it himself.

    That's quite a reaction Captain.

    I thought I would finish my femshep in 2 and then jump right into 3 again after I beat it, but the ending made me hold off on that. I just don't have an awesome ending that I can look forward too.

    I still want to finish Dragon Age which I got probably 90% through and just stopped playing for no real reason a year or two ago and I will check out future Bioware games if they look interesting and continue play ME3 MP because it's way fun and the ending can't change this.

    I just think that description is wonderful ansd hilarious.

    "Oh, what is this? Delicious cake? Oh, yea it is! Man, this cake is sooooooo good. This is probably the best cake I ever had. It's better than that cake I had a couple years ago and the cake a couple years before that. How can this cake get any better?! Wait... What is this? POOP!!!!

    This is my favourate one out of all the ones I've seen
    imagine you meet the love of your life, they're amazing and you have the best fun together. You match on so many levels. It feels like you have this incredible connection to them that you'd never want to give up. Years pass. You go through college together, you get jobs you have kids. You raise those kids the best you can and with good spirits send them into the world and hope that they'll be great little people too. You start to think about yourself a little more and the end of your career. You settle down a bit more, take some time just you and your perfect partner away from the world. Those twilight years are amazing. On your deathbed, you're just about die and your love leans closer into you, as the lights start to fade and you feel yourself slowly slipping into the blissful non existence after a life well lived, your partner straddles you on the bed and starts letting out the most explosive diarrhea, all over you, over your face, in your mouth. You die, at that final moment, suffocated in shit and confusion.

    That's how the ending made me feel

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, the ending is thematically sound, it is just that the implementation could be better.

    The ending doesn't even make any sense on its own terms.
    Spoiler:

    The ending just doesn't work, on any level. It's doesn't simply fail to live up to the hype of the game, it even fails on its own terms. It simply wasn't well thought out, period.

    BTW, one thing I don't understand is how Shepard didn't have any video feed of any of the Reaper ships he visited to use as evidence. I mean, hell, he had a Geth standing right next to him who could presumably record everything to his memory banks. And we know from the first game that Geth memory banks are admissible evidence. Alternatively, the Omnitools have a holographic projector, but no video camera? On a mission where they would want to collect as much data as possible?



    "Look, even if you morons still insist that this is all Geth technology, doesn't the fact that the Geth can create shit like this still warrant some sort of action? Also, we have DNA evidence that the Collectors are actually Prothean. Do you think the Geth can travel 50,000 years back in time now?"

    Welp got the Reaper on Silver done, had to do it with pubs, though, since everyone's games were full up when I tried to join (you guys suck). Surprisingly, only took two group changes to get a group that could do it. Admittedly, I had an awesome infiltrator whose sole purpose was reviving our two squadmates and hacking nodes, while I played my Asari Adept and ended up with triple the score of the next guy. Was tense at the evac.

    as scarey and intimidating as brutes and banshees are...

    the real culprits are filthy cannibals, marauders, and ravagers.

    Everyone is so focused on the tanks they dont notice that 90% of the time, its some little brat that wings you and drops you. If your smart, the banshees and brutes cant touch you. but a cannibal will drop a grenade on you, or plink your armor with a stray bullet.

    Because as an analogy it makes them feel better about the fact that ME3 has DESTROYED ALL THEIR ENJOYMENT and they now exist as joyless shells, unable to ever enjoy a Mass Effect game again.

    Because, what maniac would ever eat poop?

    I know as for me, I will never be able to masterbate ever again thanks to ME3. Look what you've done Bioware! I HOPE YOU ARE PROUD.

    Is it just me it does it seem like in silver the hardest objective is the area upload thing where you and your team need to stay in a certain area? It always seems like my team is in the clear and then a bunch a brutes & banshees/ Phantoms & Gaurdians/ Pryos & Primes show up so anyone who tries to stick it out gets creamed while people who try and escape are destroyed by ravagers/ Turrets/ Rocket troopers outside.

    I never seem to have a problem killing targets, I mean if all else fails: Rocket launcher. And usually one guy can get all four nodes while everyone else fights stuff... But I've failed so many times on wave 10 of Silver because a Brute sneaks in and kills a guy while everyone is distracted by a Banshee and anyone who tries to get close enough to rez the downed guy in killed.

    There's a glitch that when you use Reave as Adept that it will loop the sound forever
    This happens to every player in the game except the host
