Nah, the ending's stuck. No way they'd go back and do it yet again.
Just try and enjoy the ride until then and hope the DLC is good stuff. With multiplayer getting the Collectors I imagine single player might get a few small one-off missions involving them some time.
And vice versa for multiplayer getting an Omega stage.

No, it was, but there is no version of that ending where it's anything but a burnt up husk of it's former self.

The endings are all completely homogenizing of the entire universe.
>> No. 164904
They'll pick Red as the Blue and Green are way too stupid to work with a sequel since Blue would have some serious ShepReaper worship going on in some cult and Green...well Universal Symbiosis is just silly. The real Crux would be removing the two most problematic things from the ending that being gate and all synthetics destruction. Course according to the DLC if I heard correctly they've already waved those two problems out of existence through galactic unity or something.

Are they seriously still trying to sell DLC, even after that underwhelming third game and clusterfuck of an ending more or less killed the franchise?

What's the point anyway?
We know Shepard dies at the end and the galaxy is fucked.
Why bother?
>> No. 166719
Because when we talk to Aria and(/or read that SHIT PACK IN comic) found that Omega had be taken by Cerberus we could not wait to play that sidequest especaly when the siren song of a female Turian started playing.
Even if we are going to have to pay 135kr extra for it.

So basicly because we are sucker...
But not as bad as the guys how got the totally on disc Fall of cybertron DLC in a vain hope that we would be getting something this nice for that game...

Goddamn, Citadel was fucking amazing. It's like they let the writing team go absolutely crazy throughout. Lots of great character moments where everyone gets a chance to shine.

Also, Jack confirmed for best MaleShep romance.
>> No. 170618
Well it was the last of the hurrah's since that team wont be back for ME4 if there ever is a complete edition I think I'll just stop the game at that point and just pretend that Cerberus made the Citadel into a giant reaper killing device and we set it off between parties.

I don't know, a part of me thinks Garrus at the least will be back in some form simply due to his massive popularity.

Or that we get someone who is a massive Shep and Garrus fanboy or girl. Which I think would be funny.
>> No. 170729
I'm kind of glad it's done. I hope EA and Bioware let the series rest. I know they won't though.

If anything I wouldn't mind a standalone improved multiplayer game. Maybe with offline horde mode and a smaller story mode focusing on some small N7 squad during the Reaper War.

Knowing EA they'll turn it into CoD
>> No. 170732
EA's official policy on a franchise is "if you can still make out a skeletal structure, continue to beat the horse." So, yeah, they're going to keep BioWare slaving away on ME something until the franchise stops selling like hotcakes.

The moment any game has any kind of underwhelming sales, they'll can the entire franchise forever.

>> No. 170764
So, Citadel came out a while ago.
God damn it was fun, aside from a spot or two of serious mood whiplash.
The combat simulator is surprisingly addictive and the Lancer kind of proves how much bullshit the thermal clip crap was.

Still, probably the best DLC I've played. The fact that they went so far tongue in cheek was amazing. More or less, might as well go comedy, what do they have to lose, right?
>> No. 170768
I can see them making a joke about shipping Shepherd with someone who Bioware didn't choose to make datable. Not that I don't understand/sort of empathize with those people. I've met people who go "Can you date the guy played by Seth Green? No? Then I'm not dating anyone if I ever play it."

Is it also weird that some people I know had no idea Mass Effect even existed until the ending controversy? These are the same people who had never heard of Dragon Age until the anger over the sequel.
>> No. 170773
I knew that Mass Effect 3 would be a disaster since that's exactly what Mass Effect 2 was. If there was anything giving me comfort at seeing the promises of Mass Effect 1 destroyed, it was the warm feeling I got knowing that I was right despite all you motherfuckers calling me a naysayer for months leading up to 3.

THAT SAID what I saw of Citadel in the Giant Bomb Quick Look looked pretty good (Elcor reciting Shakespeare, okay Bioware, that's pretty funny). Not good enough for me to pay money for Mass Effect 3, but if you're already knee deep in that cesspit, you might as well.

Pretty much the only enjoyable things about 3. It's the only reason I keep the game. It's also the only DLC I own for the game. The multiplayer is pretty much horde mode. You can even solo it. I'd understand connecting for the store but otherwise this is probably the same shit EA pulled with SimCity.
>> No. 171255
Never soloed it (not even Bronze) because I don't want to waste consumables (yes I am the same guy who saves Health Potions until he out levels them because they "might totally need them later) and because the awful store gives me crappy weapons and prevents me from leveling them up to where they actually become useful.

EA really fucked 3 over. It's sad. Everyone had high hopes. Then the ending got leaked and everyone raged for months. A lot of the game just was fucked up and rushed. Tali's photo as a good example.

At this rate the multiplayer was more fun. I'll just wait for when the next game turns out to be a CoD in space.
>> No. 171285
Again seeing what they did to Dead Space I can't help but feel you are probably right. Unless the new boss make some kinda statement that EA corporate won't meddle so much in development I say Bioware if they've anything left to them should take whatever new IP they dream up to Kickstarter.
>> No. 171293
The great shame of it all is that I absolutely love the Mass Effect universe. the mythology, politics, history... it's all so damn thick and intricate. It's everything I ever wanted in a Space Opera and I sincerely hope they learn from their mistakes and go back to formula for ME4 or at the least develop a pend and paper RPG.

Hell I'd even settle for Hero Clix or a card game

The weird part is that the comics (thus far, potentially barring the new one coming out in July) and books tend to be pretty lack luster apparently.

As far as races go, I find the Turians and Salarians to be utterly fascinating and would love to see something from their perspective. Anything from leading an STG team, to the first contact war. Hell maybe even Saren's rise and fall or Garrus after Shepard since he was Shepard 2.0 according to the Shadow Brokers analysis.
>> No. 171296
Honestly I'd love the idea of a comic based around the N7 team during the Reaper War. It'd be interesting to see a bunch of commandos from different races stuck on a cramped frigate without someone like Shepard to unite them.
>> No. 171369
You know Mass Effect Generals on /vg/ maybe spend the night debating how the different races ejaculate (apparently Batarians shoot foam)and argue endlessly over whether Quarians eat Turians but goddamn is it a better place to talk than BSN.

There's this gigantic shit storm over a mod that let's maleshep romance Traynor. Like huge. That and there's people who make it their goddamn life's work to nerf everything in MP. Not fix the bugs or anything. Nerf everything in a Player vs. AI game. There's actually a guy who went out of his way to solo Platinum with the Talon Merc, carrying as much expendable shit he could and only using the trip mine for an hour just so he could say Talon is broken.

ME is ruined. The sooner you come to terms with that, the sooner you can get on with your life.
>The N7 team.
Stormwaltz grounded the term 'N7' as a specialization and proficiency rank within the Alliance navy. Unfortunately, Drew Karpshyn kept going full-retard with it and Mac Walters turned it into some silly in-universe cult of Rambos. I hate it so much, you have no idea. It comes off like those times during Rocket Power where they'd try hard to push some stupid "cool" phrase that nobody really uses.
It's bad enough they helped ruin the series, now BSN has to ruin the last good thing about Mass Effect.
>> No. 171375
I guess. It just kind of sucks to see something you like get ruined.

I'm fine with N7 being a rank.

BSN is terrible. Bioware even said they're done with 3's MP and people are still bitching about the Harrier or the Geth Juggy.

As for the picture I do wish the conflict was a little more grey. As it stands I just went for peace. Two big ass fleets are better than one and Koris turned out to be one of the few Admirals not pants on head retarded.

"Target identified." The massive bone white behemoth droned voice cold, heavy accelerator cannon spinning up, whining in the cool morning air. It's target, a collector, standing 3 meters tall turned at the voice, it chattered, raising its particle rifle, preparing. YMIR-626A, stoic and enormous, it didn't flinch, heavy reinforced feet stomped into the ground, field generators anchoring the mech to the ground, YMIR-626A was staying at its designated position, as ordered.

"Firing." each barrel rotated, dispersing strain amongst its brothers, laying down a stream of hyper accelerated raisin sized metal slugs at its target, the collector, the heat nearly melting the weapon, a constant rain of disposable heat sinks keeping the gun from bending in the immense strain. The thrum was enough to shatter windows, tear eardrums, the air ignited, flaring around the slugs like miniature explosions. Its target was too fast, dodging the stream tearing through hab after hab, felling walls and trees, the dexterous alien climbed onto a roof firing off burst after burst of fire, smattering off the YMIR's Armour. A round found purchase, ripping through the Mech's lower sensor array, it blinked out of existence.

The YMIR swayed, stabilization gyros whining as another wave of exotic rounds struck its hardened chassis. "Firing." Another heavy burst roared forth, dancing across the ground, uncontrolled targeting arrays trying to recalibrate. A turian far away was slapped as he prepared to open his mouth.

The collector’s body was pushed back by the very volume of fire the Mech laid down. The ray of light, metal, plasma and cold robotic wrath arced across the aliens barriers, too slow to react to the collector jumping, the Mech braced itself, chitin clashing with alloy, The alien scratched, the YMIR punched, claw like arms neatly severing a limb, its adversary screeched in anger. the alien pushed back, toppling the war machine, the protector of a once dead colony, it launched another volley of unexplained particles, tearing at YMIR-626A's exposed belly, ripping the armour, rending its components. if the YMIR was human it would lament its failure, but YMIR-626A was no human, it was tasked with protecting the humans, its programming stated it, clear and well formatted from the last colonist it was tasked to protect, the mechanic laying dead in storage unit five.

A punch, hard and foreign, alien, tore cords and components from YMIR-626A battered chassis, redundancies engaged with a whine, power was rerouted, a capacitor caught fire and burned, //Colonist_Human_Mechanic_Lina_Sven sson's additions worked well, the metal giant trundled back into life, burning, an avatar of destruction that at this moment had seen the face of love, directed at its cold unknowing, uncaring husk. YMIR-626A was not sad, it was not happy as the slugs tore apart, ripped, demolished, severed and cut through the invader's belly, it didn't laugh or grin as it stomped on the wretched creature's head, coated in alien blood. It was not avenging Lina's death, it did not comprehend her crying in the night or why it had a heart carved deep inside its body. YMIR-626A was a weapon, a Mech, unfeeling, inhuman. More aliens approached, small corrupted humans paired with larger batarian hybrids. The auto cannon spun into life yet again. Ripping and tearing forth large swathes, the missile rack roared, auto fabricators converting the very ground into more missiles, omnigel dripped from the lathing arrays, overloaded. The tide could not be stopped, each husk was replaced by two more, felling a scion brought the attention of a dozen others, the air thick with dust and smoke.

YMIR-626A would stand, it would not yield. The blazing stream arced and pinged across a Cannibal's wicked hide, splitting it in half, a husk simply ceased to exist, annihilated. But the cannon could not sustain the level of abuse it endured, the fabricators burned out, the heat sinks stopped falling. The battered titan, smoking and barely functioning kept firing, liquid coolant dripping from its torso, the horde drew ever closer, fire pinged across its remaining Armor, the cannon melted, turning into a torch, scorching heat radiating from it, the rounds kept coming, grinding, bouncing across bent acceleration rails, a hail of burning steel that clove through the swarm. The husks were close, YMIR-626A acknowledged the failure of its weaponry, but it did not act incapacitated, tackling through the swarm with its burning appendage, melting through, it would stand.

The tide of blue corrupted organic life descended upon the mech, throwing it to the ground, the launcher was ripped away, the volume of adversaries far too much for the servos to hold. But the horde was thinned out, the gun had done its work, each swipe of the glowing metallic claw wiped out enemies that were not replaced. YMIR-626A acknowledged the decline in foes, crushing forth, punching, the torso rotated, burning and ripping. The servos ground and cringed, the Mech was dying, it attempted to right itself, legs failed, fuel tube 1 through 6 were severed, capacitor bank A, D and C were simply missing, power was dropping and the internal fire was spreading. But YMIR-626A was not deterred, it did not fear death, for one to die, one had to be alive first. The scorched warrior rose from the pile, opportunistic rounds pinged against its cratered hull, fire control ignored them. It shuddered and quivered, but it rose, limping. YMIR-626A would stand. It staggered over to storage unit five, trailing debris, metal and smoke. The colony was dead, as it pinged the automated repair suite hidden inside the building YMIR-626A spent 0,8 seconds more than necessary staring at the fallen woman inside.

YMIR-626A was later deployed with a Geth prime during the reaper war, they boarded a cerberus shipyard with insertion pods, alone for a salarian demolitions team, a diversion, expendable.

Two days later everything on that station was dead.

Sometimes Mass Effect Generals are good.

Personally I'd want Elcor Sentinels and Rhacni Blood Warriors but that'd be asking for too much. Barring that using the Inferno armor for a sentinel with Miranda's moves and passive + tech armor. The Cerb assault armor as an Ex Cerb soldier. A tweaked Cerb engineer and Nemesis as engineer and infiltrator too. Give the Phoenix guys some company.

These are also good ideas
Also make the Warlard immune to sync kills with the exception of atlases and Praetorians. He's too heavy for anything else. Phantom stabs, scion smacks, brute grab just make him stumble.

I've been thinking about it over lunch, and the way I see an elcor working would be if it were sorta like a slower Swindle from FoC, where the guns are strapped to your back and they auto fire or auto aim as you fire. And you spec your weapons platform to either carry more guns, like at rank one you start off with two assault rifles, and you can either choose to have them fire faster, reload faster or just have an extra gun strapped to it, like three avengers or even spitfires, with the total weight dictating how llng it takes to reload.

Twch armour, in my hsad, would act more like it did in ME2, where it just gave you a heavier layer of shielding, which then explodes and partially recharges it's busted, and is oriented as a blast shield in front of the elcor, so you have to pay attention to what's going on at your flanks.

I will never the hurians thing. Hell Shepard and Garrus even talked about adoption. They could just adopt Grunt or something.

I really wanted an Ex Cerb pack. Instakills on the Krogan Warlord was silly. >>172658
A store would have been so much better than hoping you got what you needed in packs. I still want an offline mode though.
That's not bad. Tech armor really did get nerfed for no reason. It would be great for crowd control, especially for the Elcor. I always thought Elcor could move fast if they needed to. It'd be like John Carter. They could probably bitchslap a Krogan.

The Rachni would be harder but the Blood Warriors do use biotics.

The last crazy idea I'd want is a YMIR mech. I'd love to stomp through waves of Husks. Plus we could see an Atlas have its ass handed to it.

Also I'd want something like a Salarian soldier and or sentinel. There are more Volus characters than Salarians.
>> No. 172710
You're thinking of Brood warriors.

Elcor walk as fast as a Juggernaut, and can "gallop" a little faster than a Destroyer with Devastator Mode. Light melee is a swipe, another swipe, followed by a right hook. Heavy melee is it rearing up on its hind legs and slamming its fists down.

Tech armour specs out to either soaking up more damage, or widening and slanting out to cover your flank more.

After reading what I wrote during lunch, I realize I worded it more parallel to a mech from Trenched, which kinda works.

A Salarian soldier with Adrenaline Rush and, I dunno, Energy Drain and a third thing would have been cool.

Ah. Brood Warriors. Of course the Brood, Elcor and YMIR would be immune to instakills.

Overall the Salarians should have gotten more representation. They could even throw in the STG.

I just found out there are Vorcha fighter pilots. Now imagining Top Gun with Vorcha and its glorious.
>> No. 172745
The Salarians we have ARE STG.
While I'm disappointed there aren't a few more, the team at least gave a half decent flavor reason as to why there aren't more of them and, I shit you not, it's because the Salarians are too busy deploying their own STG teams to contribute any more of their forces to the multiplayers operations outfit.

In short, the STG are too busy being the STG, which is preventing them from being the STG.

I've actually just now gotten around to really playing it, and I'm amazed at how bad the ME3 itself is. Like I have issues with this game within the first five minutes, let alone the last five. I kind of understand why people just wail at the ending, but I would not have bought this game if I didn't also buy ME2.

I mean I get WHY they did it how they did it but I feel like if it had to stand on its' own it would be critically panned in entirety.

The Developers that could have held them together to the core design had long since left and since they really didn't have a project head they all went in different directions hence why we've got a really strong story in the side missions bookend by some quantic dream styled bullshit of a main with Shepard seeing ghost children and none of it ever being resolved according to the playes. If they ever release a compilation with all the DLC (HA HA Joke) I'd just play till Citadel DLC pack and end it right there. That is what writing looks like when its focused on a single set piece, still needed a better editor from what I've heard but it was a better feel than the crap they handed as a piss of an ending.

Nah lost my old save when my XBox got stollen last year. Vanilla run. Was using Tali and Garrus at first but that few like a led balloon. Probably going with Wrex and Ashley for the firepower and survivability they bring.

Shit I forgot how amazingly fun this series was.
>> No. 174094
Alright, you remember how the achievements for using skills let you use them for other classes?

If you're willing to start over, use an Infiltrator and spam Overload for a couple hours. It'll go by faster than an engineer or Sentinel due to Adrenaline Rush.

So now, if you play a Soldier or Adept, choose Overload as your bonus power to beef the shit out of your shields.

Wrex gives you a one HP per second Regen, and Ashley gives you an extra 10 percent damage reduction bonus.

Indeed. I miss the fact that shields weren't a catch-all forcefield. Melee units can fuck you up quick if you're not careful.

That and cooldown weapons. Those were great.

But seriously, when does Kaiden give me Barrier and Reave?
>> No. 174100
I'm guessing you're talking about ME3 since Reave isn't a ME1 power.
All you need to do is talk to him like everyone else.

Talk to him when he's hospitalized, then after the Citadel Coup mission. When you get the option to recruit him, do so then have a conversation with him in the Starboard Observation area right after.

As for restarting; fuck that. Full Vanguard run trilogy. No prisoners, no exceptions, no regrets. Full on murder crazy.

I didn't have her with me the first time, so I figured I'd bring her along for this run.
My god is it painful. The actors emoting is forced as shit and the crew didn't even bother to try and change their facial expressions to match.
It would be hilarious if I didn't have to rewatch the entire thing every time I get my ass beat down thanks to geting Pushed, then having a cutscene trigger immediately afterwards freezing me into a crumpled heap whenever the game starts back up.
>> No. 174623
I never got the chance to play the first game till now. I picked Vanguard just to mix it up since I did a soldier and sentinel playthrough on 2 and 3.

So... Should I go straight into saving Liara or is there a better path?

Also can I get some Mako tips? I know the enemy AI aims for the nose and I should try and tuck it behind cover, but I feel I should know more than that before tooling around planets in a six wheeled wrecking ball.
>> No. 174624
once you get a feel for the Mako and its cannon range in 1 you can pretty much snipe most geth encounters. You don't have to get Liara first though it does open up Dialog and that ME1 is more Star Trek (talking over action) than the other later ones.
>> No. 174632
I ask that first question primarily because I don't know if this game scales difficulty to level the way the other games did.

Like if there are things in the side missions I've unlocked that I shouldn't attempt till I gain more levels or better equipment.
>> No. 174635
As a consideration, any kills made in the Mako earn one-third experience points. Weakening them with the rover, hopping out, and finishing them off yourself gives normal experience. This includes parking the thing on top of Geth mechs.

I tried doing a full playthrough myself recently, but the Mako really needs forward boosters or something.

If I recall correctly, some enemy types scale but just as many are fixed. Level has a bigger impact on loot, from enemy drops and the shops.
