    Oh man... Fuck Tower of Hanoi.

    Just played through the Kasumi mission and Shadow Broker:
    Kasumi is a great new teammate. I love her cloak and stab move, and the flashbang is great for crowd control.
    Shadow Broker was fantastic. Both boss battles were awesome. I was playing vanguard against the specter and it was fun as hell chasing her around. The shadow broker at first seemed really easy with me just shooting at him. But then when he popped his Barrier and Liara told me to melee him, I got to PUNCH HIM IN THE GODDAMN FACE! The dialog was pretty good as well, my favorite line being, "Don't you miss the days when we could just slap some omni-gel on it?" Also, Tyrannosaros Wrex.

    I still have to play Arrival, is Overlord worth buying as well?

    "I hate that guy."
    "Nihlus gave you a compliment, so you hate him."
    "Remember to zip up your jumpsuit on the way out of the bathroom, that's good. I just jumped us halfway across the galaxy and hit a target the size of a pinhead, so that's incredible. Besides spectres are trouble, I don't like having him onboard, call me paranoid"
    "You're paranoid."

    I was sold on those two from that moment.

    Overlord is good. Not fantastic, but it has some great moments. It's better than Arrival.

    Played the demo.

    Eh.

    Mass Effect doesn't really do well in demo form. Though I finally got to play around with the charge vanguard thing since I couldn't import my real character into the demo.

  • DragkoniasDragkonias Registered User regular
    yeah I totally believe all those times when they said ME3 will make you cry now

    the end of the earth part of the demo was sad enough
    The sad thing about that part was that I knew what was going to happen(it was so obvious) and how they were setting it up. But that music went with it so well.

    I'm kind of sick and I can't sleep because it's too dry and the air is drying out my nose and throat.

    This must be what inverse Thane feels like ;-;

    Edit: Breathing through this wet shirt, I realize there's no reason for Thane to not just have some kind of rebreather that dehumidifies the air for him.

    The problem isn't just the humidity on floating squid world 76 its that his body isn't designed for moisture in the air at all. I figure if they used a rebreathter keprals would just manifest elsewhere

    I have a podcast now. It's about video games and anime!Find it here.

    I think there's more bass in the ME3 demo than there is in all of ME1.

    What?! Why haven't I played the demo yet?!

    Well shit, seeing the new screenshots of Kaiden make me regret that he is dead.

    Hopefully Ashley is a bit less of a nazi this time around.
    yeah kinda wish my main shep had kaidan instead of ashley

    hells of late for that though

    I'm fine with Ashley warming a bench on the Normandy instead of Kaidan.

    Kaidan had to heroically die so that I wouldn't accidentally romance him (which I had started to, given that it was my first playthrough ever).

    Gives that planet all kinds of dramatic tension and shit.

    My shep's heart died with Kaiden too (at least until she suddenly fell for Garrus). I just wanted to hold on to my girl power trio of Ashley, Tali and adept-Femshep, just because they worked so well together.

    Accidental romances seem to be pretty common in Bioware games. In Dragon Age my female mage tried desperately to romance Alistair, then happened to compliment Leliana's hair or something and suddenly found herself in a lesbian relationship.

    i've been watching vanguard demo videos

    from what i can see, charge does variable damage based on how far away from your target you are

    short charges do less damage, long charges do HOLY SHIT THAT WAS HIS ENTIRE HEALTH BAR

    i foresee a future of cross-battlefield flanking maneuvers

    "i need to pick off that guy on the left. TIME TO HEAD RIGHT"

    Best line of the entire series.

    My favorite line is the renegade one when you try to get Mordin. "Why can't anyone ever say 'Sure, let's go! No strings attached!'"

    In all honesty I can't pick a best line. There's a ton of cornball lines that are silly or just don't make sense (Anderson, why would you bring up my vision? I told you not to talk about it you bastard!), but there's also tons of great dialog, particularly in the second game.

    My favorite line/dialog however doesn't come from one of the main characters, but from a vid screen you see on Tali's loyalty mission: the one where the geth are cutting the door open while a quarian leaves a message behind for her child (children?). The writing, acting, and pacing are absolutely chilling.

    I was just about to mention this.

    I have Towers of Hanoi memorized (since I was a kid), but I'm a tank so I'm not the one doing the puzzle part of that boss.

    The Tali trial speech as a paragon also gave me nerd chills the first time I heard it.

    I liked on my last playthrough when I was talking about how Tali would never bring active Geth into the fleet.

    Um, also don't mind my robot man over there with the flashlight for a head.

    That's not Tali who brought Legion, that's Shepard

    ...who's there at Tali's request. Shhhh.

  • ChaosHatChaosHat Trick of the lightRegistered User regular
    It's a super dick move. It should be like a bajillion renegade points.

    "Hey Tali I know you're on trial for bringing Geth into the fleet but I'm going to bring Legion even though there's no way he could be helpful at all to proving your innocence and will probably just damage your case further. At least AI Hacking will be useful for clearing out the Geth that I don't know about yet!"

    Can you autograph a first edition copy of Deception for me Taky? I hear they'll be quite rare soon. :3

    Kidding, good to see back man. Thanks for all your hard work, looks like it's gonna pay off.

    As a status update, It now works! I can have my canon playthroughs properly! hurrah!

    Does it work narratively if all the DLC is at the end?

    With Arrival? Yes, absolutely. Shadow Broker fits anywhere, but save the final visit with Liara on the Normandy for post game.

    Okay, so I'm finishing up the ME2 DLC on my Paragon/Renegade MaleShep runs. And I totally forgot that I did not recruit Kasumi or Tali because I ran out of time when the final mission countdown hit.

    Now I can't decide if I should ignore picking them up or not. Also, I totally forgot how badly my suicide mission went. Miranda, Thane, Legion, Grunt, Mordin, and Jack are all dead.

    Only saved by Legion's total disinterest in everything but Shepard's sculpted behind in that mission. Close call there.

    Shadowbroker post-game is the best. You don't get all the possible rewards, but who gives a damn.

    It's even better if you lose someone.

  • SoundsPlushSoundsPlush yup, back. Registered User regular
    Overlord is self-contained. Shadow Broker and Arrival adjust based on whether it's before or after the suicide mission, and Arrival especially fits better if it's after. Recruiting Kasumi after the mission you're hiring her for might be kind of odd, but I can't remember if that's mentioned.

    I like to do Kasumi/Zaeed in the inital wave of recruits, Overlord before Horizon, Shadow Broker right after Horizon, and Arrival right before the Suicide Mission

    PNk1Ml4.png
  • ElendilElendil Registered User regular
    I did Kasumi/Zaeed/Overlord/Firewalker all before Horizon, Shadow Broker right before the Ship, and Arrival right after the suicide mission.

    the shadow broker pre-suicide mission dialogue is fine, you don't need to wait on it unless you've already done it before and want new dialogue

    I heard Overlord wasn't really worth it, but -Tal's explanation looks best. Excellent.
