    Black Widow is the definition to me of an infiltrators weapon.

    For a few seconds, you are god and if you can hit all the shots you decimate.

    Then you have to cower for a few seconds.

    Also I can't stand using snipers on non infiltrators. Other than the Sal Engineer I can't imagine using a rifle on a non-Infiltrator.

    Though if I could take the scope off of rifles I'd probably use the Viper or Valiant on a ton of classes.

    Valiant works on pretty much any class you just can't be playing all up in the face of the baddies

    i can no longer play any class - ANY class - without having to hold myself back from playing in melee-range

    You know, I legit did not expect Citadel to reveal that Garrus-romancing Femshep was into
    roleplaying, particularly in public. And that tango, damn!
    Playing out a "first date" was absolutely adorable.

    Then Garrus ups the ante by being smooth as hell, like, goddamn.

    I wish my Striker was a higher level so it wasn't heavy as shit because it's incredibly satisfying shooting people with it. That sound it makes is incredibly sexy.

    i wish it had 10 times its current ammo capacity. as it is, it's hilarious fun on a tursoldier with marksman, but it has less ammo than the got dam harrier

    Yep.

    Claymore infiltrator
    Smashguard
    Slayer

    All my favorite classes, all done at a range so close that they look like a DA character when done.

    yeah the number of purely bullshit full-shields-to-dead moments there was astounding

    and the time dilation is like a microscope that lets you zoom in on the fact that you have in fact been one-shotted

    No where is this more glaring than vs the N7 Shepard clones. God DAMN that fight is frustrating. That fight is so rough, I found the glitched permadeath Atlas+Scion+Banshee+Prime fight relaxing in comparison. Shepard difficulty is Diamond Difficulty. Or maybe Eezo Difficulty.

    My best guess is SP uses the original Charge while MP's Charge has been modified through multiple patches to grant additional immunity frames in an attempt to reduce off-host de-syncs.

    well ME3 default charge must have been nerfed from ME2's default charge, then

    because this shit did not happen in ME2. i died lots, sure, but it was due to stupid decisions, not game inconsistency

    Has anyone been getting a bug recently in MP where you can no longer take cover? Like you'll move toward the cover and duck behind it but then immediately pop back out.

    I got that a little bit during one of the PA game sprees, it only seemed to be on a specific spot though, if I moved to the side a bit I could into cover.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    The only time I've seen this happen is when I'm charging a weapon like the Arc Pistol or Geth Plasma Shotgun.

    Anyone use Gibbeds Save Editor to edit Romances? I killed my Miranda romance since there was nothing to it before the Citadel DLC. Now that I'm done with Amalur and they've added more via CitDLC, I'm trying to activate it again without having to go back to post-palaven. I've got a save right before you meet her in the apartment but I can't get the romance to continue. I've tried setting every Liara bool I can find to False and every Miranda one to True but no luck.

    It's a miracle! I played two games in a row and got credits for both of them!

    I'm getting close to the various enemy masteries now.
    Well, except Cerberus and Reapers. Fucking Guardians and Husks.

    Guardians are easy to kill (hey-o piercing mod) but it just feels like there's never enough of them.

    I love when a long line of Guardians emerges on Wave 8. They love to get particle laser fed through the mailslot.

    Man, the PC version of the game really thinks I want Infiltrators. AIU, Drell Assassin, Huntress, Shadow, Quarian (Male and Female), and Salarian. Where as I really want a Fury, or a Phoenix Adept, or a Collector. And the only adepts I have unlocked are the Drell and Volus. RNG, curse you!

    So I unboxed the volus protector. I also have a batarian gauntlet V. Is that combination actually viable at all, or is it more for the hilarity of shinpunching things to death?

    It's all fun and games until you see the gas bill. Liquid helium is fucking expensive.

    Everything is viable on Silver.

    Gold? If you find a big weapons platform to follow around (N7 Destroyer, Juggernaut, Battlemaster) and play mostly support with a few dickpunches thrown in, you can do ok.

    So I finally prestiged my Tursoldier. He was my first serious class and I leveled him up all wrong. But more importantly I'm going to level him based around shotguns because apparently the game LOVES giving my shotgun upgrades (I have the Katana X and Scimitar X and opened up the spike thrower on my first Specter Pack without using shotguns on anyone grrrr), and this weird in between place (of using sniper rifles and assault rifles) makes me feel really insignificant next to Vanguards or Infiltrators. I'll run into a pack of guys with marksman on and then see a vanguard charge in and kill all of them, then I'll try to snipe a boss and then see it get three-shot'd by some infiltrator with the black widow

    I mean I still do well and I'm not pulling my team down but I feel like I'm not adding anything that the more extreme classes aren't.
