I used that Ser Isaac armor way longer than I should have.





Only for you, babe.



Looking forward to hearing more on the DLC. My fiancee--who is an enormous ME fan--FINALLY finished her run of the trilogy and walked away quite satisfied with it.

Spoiler


Not only did she manage to avoid spoilers all this time, but she had the benefit of never seeing the original ending. Things like Omega and Leviathan were just part of the game for her, and that was pretty cool to see. Despite my love for the trilogy, I kinda liked watching her journey through it more. I also liked seeing the results of someone beating the game without being aware of the initial development misstep.


She still hated Kai Leng though. There's no undoing that.


Brad Shoemaker of Giant Bomb had a similar experience and named ME 3 his GotY based on the strength of having From Ashes and Leviathan in his main playthrough.

I kinda felt bad about how Legion was handled in ME3. The guy who wrote most of its dialogue (and a shitload of the codex entries in ME1 and 2) left the company, so the character - and the geth in general - ended up going in a rather... different direction.

Who wrote the Legion stuff? I was wondering last night who wrote Jacks stuff, as well.

That vid with Sam Hulick was good. It reminded me of the emotional aspect of a few scenes.

In ME3? I don't know. In ME2 it was Chris L'etoile, which is a pretty fucking badass name for someone working on a science-fiction franchise ("L'etoile" translates to "The star"). By extension of doing the writing for Legion, he was also responsible for effectively shaping the entirety of the geth in ME2. He was also really not in to the whole "N7 plating on Legion" thing, something that a concept artist did on a whim that someone higher up on the company ladder really liked and wanted to be a major part of the character. L'etoile tried to downplay it as much as possible through dialogue, but... eh.

He also did a lot of writing for ME2's EDI, I think, and seemed kind of offended by how EDI, Legion, and the geth came out in ME3.

All endings are basically Renegade in some way.

Control: You're siding with The Illusive Man. Pretty much speaks for itself.
Synthesis: You're forcing something on everyone (also, because starbrat told you "it was the logical thing to do"). Free will just got spaced.
Destroy: You killed EDI. The Geth. "Hey, EDI! You're an individual that makes her own choices!" "Hey, Legion! You're an individual and you sacrificed yourself to help make your kind sentient!" Yeah, about all that...

Actually, now that I think about it, the only one that isn't really Renegade (sort of) is the ending where BioWare spits in our face: Shooting starbrat or Rejection ending. According to the game, you basically gave it your best shot and it didn't work out. No one was forced into doing anything. Everyone died fighting for what they believed in. That's kind of Paragon-ish :lol:

I like to imagine a whole squadron of Geth Elites building a Quarian nursery on Rannoch or something and just shutting down. Crashing the whole building down on a room full of Quarian babies.

Whoa. I think I've seen that concept art of the Citadel before. The krogan w/ insane warhammer thing... not so much.

ETA: Yeah, no. I think the concept art I'm thinking of was this. According to BSN that new pic is an in-game screenshot.

Other than the EC, what's been the longest wait between initial tease/reveal and release for DLC? I don't know what these are, but I want them. Now.

And how'd that Krogan get a brute hammer from Halo??

Casey Hudson says this location is "a nice place for some R&R." Chances are that's a joke, and it'll be a place where we shooty-shoot some Cerberus and then never visit again. But wouldn't it be amazing if it did add a new permanent hub and some squadmate interaction. I swear, I would so pay for a "hangout" DLC with no combat and all dialogue.

Agreed.

Even if it was something along the lines of the Shadow Broker ship from ME2, that would be a nice bonus.

Also makes me wonder how much more we'll get post-release DLC, assuming this tease is for DLC #3 (Leviathan, Omega and new DLC).
