Meet Robyn Shepard.

CbD1C.gif

You can just call her Mama.

She's the newest inductee to the Council Spectres, but she doesn't really care about that. All she cares about

Is the cash.

Looking for missing ships? Solving interstellar diplomatic disputes? Stopping satanic robots from consuming the galaxy? She ain't give a fuck about any of that.

The only thing she wants is REVENGE, on this man.

tumblr_m26kl6i5D71rnsyfr.gif

Kaiden Alenko, real name Kaiden Klein, the dastardly older brother of the heir to the Calvin Klein fortune. He murdered his brother and Shepard's sister, and falsified his brother's will in order to inherit his vast riches. Then he escaped into space, where he thought no one could find him. But he thought wrong. Mama Shepard is hot on his trail, and is drawing him into a web of seduction so that she can strike him down at his most vulnerable.

In the meantime though, she's got to deal with all the fuck-ups of this guy:

tumblr_m26tfx5SQ41rnsyfr.gif

Donnell Udina, stoner turned mad scientist turned human ambassador. His weed-inspired genetic experiments are starting to wreak havoc all over the galaxy, and there's only one woman who can help him put a stop to it.

That is, if she can take time away from producing pornographic films with casual acquaintances.

    This is the Mass Effect thread we deserve.

    I hadn't really been paying attention to the ME3 thread so when I saw multiplayer DLC my first question was, how much are they charging?

    OMG it's free

    perhaps in the next BioWare game then, whatever it is

    Mom Effect has kept me incredibly entertained for over 24 hours now, so it's clearly something special. Speed, I hope you get your 500 followers.

    Replaying Me3 reminded me of one small disappointment: (post-tuchanka spoiler)
    Udina's motives for backing Cerberus were never explored whatsoever

    The talk you have with him in his office at the start of the game actually adds some interesting nuance to his character, so I was disappointed to see him subsequently get shot without further fanfare

    That bugged me too. I guess the uncharacteristic competence and willingness to help at the beginning should've been a tip off.

    maybe all that Just For Men™ seeped into his brain, and as his hair grew out more he turned back into his old self...

    It's not like it's a big reveal, I'm pretty sure they don't even talk about it in the game... you learn it from a codex entry in the first 5 minutes (assuming you read codex entries about vile batarians. )

    Edit: This might even be something that came from other materials (like one of the novels) which is why they don't talk about it in the game.

    That isn't a spoiler, that is the outcome of arrival (where you learn that the reapers are right outside batarian space).

    Ok, admittedly, that is the sexiest that greasy pompador has ever looked.


    Things the Wiki taught me:
    ■In the French version, batarians are called "butarians". This may have been because the French word "batard" means "bastard".

    I really do hope that they plan to explore the setting some more

    As I said in the last thread, I would love a game set, oh, maybe right before the events of ME1 where you played as a Spectre (of some non-human species, necessarily) or a member of STG

    It could be the Halo ODST of the ME series
