Speaking of incredibly hot blondes, Yvonne Strahovski is going to appear on the next season of Dexter. Another good reason to look forward to it, the first reason being that season 6 was so impossibly dreadful, they have nowhere to go but up. Let's hope her character is Australian.

Great find on the tunes, eX. I love me some 8 bit.

From my packs I got a Hurricane (II now) and the Crusader. Also got my Vorcha soldier. That guy is a lot of fun and can tear down a Brute or Atlas with ease when I have the flamer + reeger shotgun equipped, followed by a carnage chaser should I need to reload.

Spy, you were right on that the Vorcha are Brute hunters!

Yeah I know right, flame on! lol The problem I have with the Vorcha I kill someone and he goes all rage stretch out body animation, meanwhile I'm getting pummeled with bullets so he gets out of cover and dies or goes to very low health (before I can kill something) ahh. That and I always want to melee everything and the melee in this game just isn't there. They'll be times when the AI just moves an inch and I will miss plus it seems it's almost pointless on higher difficulties because they melee you first. I hate that, as much as I do having to focus on hitting the Spec Ops Right D-pad because yeah it doesn't ever activate when I click it (and I have the silver upgraded controller too).

Yeah so I grabbed my Victory and Commendation Pack and got Crusader, Hurricane (everyone I talked to online didn't like it but I do as long as you anticipate the recoil it'll rip into enemies) and the Male Quarian! Also bought mostly SPs and 1 PSP and got the Geth Pulse Rifle (finally), upgraded Viper (meh), upgraded Eagle (cool), upgraded Widow (woo), and got more gear.

Did a Gold run, with full equipment (Gear I had increased sniper rifle dmg) lol, with a random group. We were all Quarians Infiltrators haha (2 male/2 female) and we happened to go against the Geth, went against Unknown anyway, and was able to finish that. Man though, Geth Hunters are not a problem usually but on Gold they f'n suck. They're just sitting there not attacking you and all of a sudden they go all ape shit while you're trying to fend off pyros and Primes.

I read that the problems with the D-pad go much deeper than requiring a stronger press (like with the Silver). Supposedly, the way the D-pad is shaped on the circuit board is the problem and a simple fix won't cut it.

those bastards thought they'd be cute and give me an Eagle. Great pistol but they've been giving me the Valiant every pack up to IV, I was hoping they'd continue w/that trend.

ex-cerberus vanguard, so much fun. Smash is insane, lash is insane...makes you wish throw, pull, carnage, nova, all that has faster protectile speeds and effects. Got the quarian infiltrator as well but he's lvl 1 due to the promoting challenge.

great additions. it'll be hard to top these in the next dlc pack...if anything, the enemy might need some new upgrades. Like shield & barrier generators.

I dunno. It was a step up from S5 for me. But then, I would have been content staring at rocks for a season after that shit.

I still don't have a single damned Phoenix character. I want that Vanguard so bad.

Also, I think shield generators could be really sick. Especially if they had the tactical advantage that they do in campaign, what with overtaking them and using them yourself and all. Could even be a little "Press A to Hack" event that causes enemies to target it once you turn it; keep it balanced.

It was definitely a step down from the first four seasons, but I thought it was still pretty decent. Julia Stiles did a good job with her role I thought. Season 6 just had nothing redeeming about it at all.

great news on shockwave and smash, even the saber...i might actually dust that thing off and use it. the rest is reasonable, as it seemed that's all what ppl were using lately.

iank...the vanguard's hvy melee is him lashing, his quick melee is a stun tonfa/baton. easily my new favorite class, you dont even need biotic charge. smash is hilarious...is more rewarding than beauty punching. i played w/jelks last night for 1 game, he was all excited..then when i said i had to leave to get dinner and pick up my girl, he got all sad and quiet. haha. i think im the only xbl'er that doesn't disagree with everything his says.

Even better is that lite melee and heavy melee cancel out the animation for Smash, but you still get the effect. It's great if you're about to be surrounded, but awesome overall.

yeah, one thing i noticed is Biotic Charge and Smash/Lash seem to be on the s
same CD timer which is horrible...the human Vanguard w/BC + Nova is vastly superior in that aspect. However, the X-vanguard's hvy melee animation is just enough time if you have close to 200% recharge to fire off smash or lash after you BC, Hvy Melee, fun biotics.

the upgrade to fling unshielded opponents is pure enjoyment.

cool, thanks for the tip.

The Smash animation does not have any invincibility frames what so ever. You are completely exposed for the entire duration unless you're spamming it behind cover (it phases through walls and causes screen shaking earthquakes for your teammates just like Shockwave).

Got two Crusaders and another damned Vorcha Sentinel. His patterns are goofy, but I guess there's not a ton to work with. At any rate, the Eagle is the only promo N7 weapon I don't have a representative of yet, so that's neat.

Work work work, annnnnd I found me3multiplayer.com where this was mentioned:

1. Use Carnage to reload cancel so that you can continuously rain armor-piercing ice-missiles and fiery blasts at your foe. If Carnage hasn’t cooled down and you’re looking to reload just tap B while in cover and you can easily reload cancel that way.

Anyone know what they're talking about?

I think after you use carnage you reload while behind cover. The animations will cancel the cool down for carnage.

I wish. They are simply describing another way to cancel the basic reload animation to increase the possible dps of weapons like the Claymore, Widow, etc. It has nothing to do with mitigating or eliminating cooldown times.

Yeah, it's the same idea as sprinting to cancel a long reload time. Soon as you see the number on your clip fill up, you can do pretty much anything to cancel out of reload animation.

...Including tapping on Medi-Gel and tagging on just about any power after breaking TC with an Infiltrator e.g. TacScanning after firing then reloading during the animation.

XP: Neither. Commendations required completing a delivery objective with any Rebellion character in your squad then extraction on Silver or Gold.

Taken from the BSN:

Allied Goal: Complete 100K retrieval missions.

Personal Goal: Extraction on Silver difficulty with one squad member of the Rebellion Pack classes: Vorcha, Phoenix Project Defectors, or Quarian Male.


To be clear: The Rebellion Pack squad member does NOT have to be the one who extracts. They just have to participate in the mission and at least one squad member has to extract.

Operation Mastiff must be completed on Silver OR BETTER. So Gold completions do count.

I got both packs for the weekend event, and I didn't have a Rebellion Pack character until after opening them.

I've unlocked a ton of weapons recently. I've been working with the Krysae with a few rounds. I'm not great with the sniper rifle, so it's not great for me personally, but I can see why others enjoy blowing enemies up with it.

Ended up getting a Vorcha Solder. Out of all the new characters I have to say I like him the best. Seems to bring back some of the fun to the game. I have yet to unlock all of them but out of the ones I have I don't like them that much. The Vorcha Solder seems like it will keep me playing more.
