    yeah I played ME1/2 on the pc so much I don't think I'll get it. I mostly got it so I can run a few games that will be coming out relatively soon and my laptop isn't really all that gaming friendly..

    Hating on the batarians is too easy because they're not people, really they barely qualify as living things

    We should talk about how the quarians thought it was a good idea to delay assistance to the Alarei so they could make a political maneuver during Tali's trial

    or how every mission you see them on including Freedom's Progress, Haestrom, Gei Hinnom, Tali's loyalty, and every one on pilgrimage ends in failure and heavy casualties

    or how they failed at genocide and still refuse to take responsibility 300 years later, and have a political structure so weak that Shepard can bitch them out in their own courtroom

    Geth forever

    Tal.

    Tal.

    You're making up bullshit again. They didn't delay assistance. They delayed blowing the ship to hell. Did you entirely miss the whole "Sending in Marines" thing? Turned out it was nasty enough to chew them up and spit them out, making any non-Shepard solution impractical at best, and a hazard to the fleet at worst.

    And Haestrom was, despite everything, a success. They got the data, and sure. Shepard saved their asses. But they were up against a Geth battalion out of nowhere that happened to be testing out their fanciest next-gen super weapon, with close air support. And you have to be TRYING to get Reegar killed, which is pretty impressive considering he's fighting wounded.

    I mean, yeah, the Quarians fuck up fairly often. Not saying they're the Salarian STG or anything. But their fuckups have been contained, with the obvious exception of the Geth.

    Plus, Cerberus lost to them. Every single insult just makes Cerberus look even more comically incompetent.

    EDF 2017 for 360.

    There's a level where you take an assault rifle and a rocket launcher that can destroy skyscrapers with infinite ammo to hunt down a city's worth of bugs the size of buicks alongside a huge and lovably dimwitted squad of AI companions. You can blast an ant fifty feet in the air.
    This is the first level

    no gamertags are an everywhere thing

    also i think it kind of depends what games you're into


    like are you more shooter-y or adventure-y or RPG-y


    e: Also Burnout is less of a racing game and more of an open world driver so my view was always that it doesn't have splitscreen for the same reason nobody looked at RDR and said "man where's the local multiplayer"

    Burnout always did. Burnout 3 is probably my favorite racing game ever.

    It just felt like Paradise took everything I loved about Burnout and shat all over it.

    This is like the last thing I wanted from a Burnout game. The city is boring and it's pretty much a chore to do anything.

    burnout paradise maybe but the rest of the series was a straight up racing game and the split screen or controller passing multiplayer was probably the best thing about the other games

    of course crash mode was amazing but they took that out too so, you know, whatever

    paradise sucked

    The only cool Quarian you meet on Tali's loyalty mission is that admiral who you think is a dick at first. And no one likes him. Then you find out its because he is a "geth apologizer" Which is a Quarian buzzword for someone who thinks genocide is bad.

    There are loads of jokes about how Ashley is Space Hitler but when you really think about, Tali's view on the Geth are a lot fucking worse then anything Ashely says about aliens.
