    Either the servers or my internet are being exceptionally shitty today, lagging like a mofo in the games I was playing just now. Was trying out my new krogan soldier but it got really hard to melee people when enemies kept warping around the map.

    Still though, krogan soldier is pretty fun. Don't think I used any ammo at all for most of the waves.

    Glacier is the tiny ass lab one right

    I hate that fucking level

    I feel like I get it a disproportionate amount of times when I choose Random too. Sometimes it'll pop up 50% of the time.

    Random my ass

    Glacier is my favorite map anymore.

    Glacier is so small that stuff can't help but cluster up

    Perfect placement to rip everything apart via biotic explosions.

    I always choose random maps and enemies when I pub. And about the last 7 matches in a row I have had Cerberus on Firebase... uh... the one with the indoor walkway looking over an open area outside? Dagger?

    Well I have a carnifex V right now as well, so really the paladin isn't even an upgrade unless I'm able to get a few more levels on it.

    But someday, someday I'll have a high enough level paladin to justify using it over my carnifex.

    Also, geth on gold on Glacier is basically a picnic.

    you know why mass effect 3 sucks

    it is because Garrus wants a scorpion and I can't give him one

    I did that last night. I felt really bad about it and talking to Squadmates only made me feel worse. Especially Garrus.

    It is made so much worse by the fact that
    they make you pull the trigger yourself.

    Still, had to be done, Earth First and all that.

    God I love it when the worm eats Wreav and Wrex is all "What a shame".

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    Even when he lives, Wrex is like "Don't worry about him, he's a dick and besides nobody could survive that

    It gives Wreav kind of a bad-ass air when he walks in out of the desert, bloodied and sore but very much alive

  • The_ScarabThe_Scarab Registered User regular
    Glacier is the best map because you can shoot through the glass. Which makes it pathetically easy if you have one guy rounding up enemies in the main lab area while three infiltrators snipe their entire world from the balcony.

    scarab you have mental problems

    wow

    like all of wrex's dialogue is different if you destroyed the cure

    with how shitty the ending is it can be kind of easy to forget how impressive everything else up to that point was

    It gets even better.
    He has different dialog for a long time if you apologize or don't on the shuttle ride over.

    Do?

    Attitude's roughly

    "Shepard, you're my best friend, and you're doing me a favor. But HOLY SHIT that was a stupid dick move. You owe me one for that, all I'm saying. Still, glad to see you again."

    The best bit is at the very end, where Shep can admit that Eve's death was her fault. He not only forgives her, but does his best to make her feel less shitty.

    Don't?

    He is pissed.

    Oh my sweet God, is that true?

    This game gives me the vapors

    Then of course, there's what happens if you choose to
    sabotage the cure
    The first time I heard about that was someone mentioning basically losing their shit because they felt absolutely awful about the confrontation with Wrex.

    Which is exactly how you SHOULD feel. Sabotaging the cure is a seriously awful thing to do, and I really can't blame Wrex's character for being out for blood over it.

    It's even worse for the fact that you can only make this happen by killing Mordin in cold blood.

    Just... fuck. That game really punishes you for going the bad guy route.
    Not evil.

    Just ruthless and long term.

    Krogan have absurd birthrates and a genetic affinity towards being, well, homicidal psychopaths. Left alone last time, they ripped the galaxy seven or eight new assholes

    Wrex might be able to make a new Tuchanka. One that doesn't threaten other species existence (unless they start something, in which case he's going to build a throne with their skulls. Good guy, but again, Krogan.)

    Or he could die. Or fail. Suddenly, you're neck deep in krogan who have a lot of scores to settle and nobody keeping them from the whole "Eat salarian eggs" plan.

    And if Wrex and Eve are dead? You can convince Mordin of exactly that. Mordin thinks of the genophage as a necessary evil. If Wrex and Eve are alive, well, it's enough of a chance the whole thing is no longer necessary. Not a guarantee, but his conscience won't let him sit until there's a sure bet. If they aren't?

    Then Wreave will probably try to fuck over the entire galaxy in a generation or three, and nothing's going to stop him short of total annihilation.

    Show Mordin that, and he's more than willing to go along with sabotage.
    It's a short term, short sighted "solution" to enforce the status quo. Fuck the Salarians.
    The Krogan have already shown once that they're willing to steamroll the rest of the galaxy for their own good, and it's not unreasonable to think they'll do it again. Wrex and Eve might unite them and make them into something better than they've ever been, but they could just as easily fail, or get assassinated by Wreav, or any other of a million different things and bam, war-mongering krogan empire that gives birth to ten babies for every adult that you manage to kill.

    I chose to cure the genophage and I'm still not completely convinced I did the right thing.
    wreav is dead
    Yup, and they deserve the chance to try. If you choose to commit them to extinction, you are no better than the Reapers and the catalyst. Have a little faith.
    "I'm sorry," I'll tell the civilizations crushed under the heel of a brutal krogan empire, "they deserved a chance"

    Everyone keeps saying 'krogan extinction' when it's made very clear it's just Wrex being emotional. Shepard is not genocidal.
    If you kill Wrex and Eve is dead, Shepard says he's NOT trying to wipe out the Krogan and they DO deserve a cure. Just not right NOW. Even if the Reapers are defeated there's a very good chance the Krogan will start another galactic war over the scraps that are left.

    It ain't genocide, never was.

    According to ME2 it's the pre-war population growth standard.

    It's not good, but it's not genocide. You know, like the Krogan dropping asteroids on Turian planets killing millions and ruining the land for a few billion years.

    And what happens when king Wrex isn't around anymore?
