    It would be pretty hilarious if Tali dies out of no where.

    She must have caught a bug from somewhere.

    From Shepard, of course.

    She should die if you romanced her in ME2.

    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.

    You're telling me the quarian idea of a fair trial is to send the defendant and her lawyer on an apparent suicide mission? A suicide mission to the quarians anyway, not to an actually competent military. Shepard and Tali didn't think it was too bad. If the quarians can't even clear a ship of geth, how the hell do they plan to retake Rannoch? They're stupid and dogmatic, which makes them unreliable allies if you're planning to work with the geth too.

    Haestrom is in the middle of geth space. They should have prepared for an attack. Tali would be dead without Shepard. She shares that distinction with Garrus, every other squadmate just does awesome stuff in their introduction and Shepard recruits them.

    Best possible ending to The Arrival would have been:
    Shepard not getting picked up by the Normandy and with the vision of Harbinger displayed riding the ever accelerating asteroid into the Mass Relay. The entire time, looking dead into the eyes of the gigantic reaper in front of him, closer and closer, Harby just going on and on about cosmic winds and blah blah blah, closer and closer and Shep just screaming at him as he rides it into the explosion.

    Of course, Shep would live cause that's what Shep does....but you get the idea.

    Quick question, I haven't even done the IFF mission yet, but should downloading and doing any of the DLC missions cause any conflicts moving forward?

    Or are some of them meant to be completed after the main story?

    No. Wait. He said he'd have died on the job without Shepard. Oops.

    Legion?

    Jack, though. Jack would never...

    Be caught and in a maximum security lockdown.

    Zaeed and Kasumi are just hired between incredibly dangerous jobs rather than in the middle of one when Shep shows up. Doesn't seem a fair comparison, and Miranda's survival depends a lot on Shepard being the prime target instead of her.

    So, we've got...

    Mordin as the only teammate who'd survive without Shepard.

    ...Damn. I thought the criteria wouldn't work out so well.

    Actually if I recall correctly, the evil goblin things had just shut down the ventilation system for Mordin's part of the station and if Shepard hadn't shown up, he and everyone else in his clinic would have suffocated to death!

    Unless there's some context behind that, I'm going to have call it a dumb name.

    Is there some kind of context?

    is do I start over and slog though all the citadel bullshit again

    or come back and do it later with a new character without the benefit of starting off at level 40

    both of them sound like horrible horrible ideas
