Yea, I've pretty much resigned myself to getting my Piranha and Acolyte to X before I'll ever get anything else. And hey, almost there. Both humped my leg for another 2-3 packs and they're both at IX now. Thankfully, I also got the Demolisher in the last pack which means...grenade spam time.

Not that I want to drag people away from MP dialogue, though I picked up my Sheploo Paragon Vanguard playthrough last night to start finishing it up and was a bit surprised by the difference in the LI scene between that one and from my FemShep.

My FemShep has Liara as her LI and the scene with those two was two steps from cable porn and my Sheploo has Tali as his LI with that scene being five seconds and was quite G-rated.

I'm assuming it's because it's Tali that there wasn't much of a scene there? I saw the picture of Tali in-game finally and I can see why everyone has such a stink over it.

I didn't think the scene between my manshep and Liara was all that steamy. Pg-13 at worst.

But I have to say Shrike.....how can you steal Garrus' girl? Bro's before ho's, man.

It was in a different league compared to any other love scene in the game though. I mean, this is a game with a romantic shower scene in which your character remains fully clothed. Anything looks steamy compared to that.

The best was that for Morrigan, the "underwear" actually covered more skin than her standard costume. So in order to get it on, she took off her normal outfit and then changed into something less revealing.

She wasn't an option for Garrus when I started up a romance with her. How was I supposed to know what happened to her in ME3?

She did end up with Garrus for my femShep playthrough, so it's all good. :D

It was in a different league compared to any other love scene in the game though. I mean, this is a game with a romantic shower scene in which your character remains fully clothed. Anything looks steamy compared to that.

I ended up going through that very same sequence with my femShep and Traynor, just to see what would happen, and you're right the "fully clothed" thing seems a bit odd in comparison to femShep and Liara.

It's magic, y'see. ;)

That one was odd, now that I think about it. Guess she had to be a bit more modest when give the chance to do the deed? :-s

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

So apparently at the BioWare Comic-Con panel, they dropped some hints about an Omega/Aria T'Loak themed DLC being next in line after Leviathan, as many people have suspected.

They also showed this pic, which seems to show an Atlas mech underwater:

There's a much clearer shot of this same picture here.

Look carefully at the cockpit. It looks like Shepard's in there.

Sorry, just wanted to point that out. Not that I don't think it'd make a really great and creative MP map :D

Also, a little deeper...is the Atlas mech named after Atlas? Haha, nice coincidence.

Is anyone else starting to sing "Under The Sea" when they look at that picture? :D

Btw, I must ask: Has the game crashed for anyone else? Like a LOT?

Because just now, the damn thing crashed again. And this has been at least the 5th time. Is it just me or is the game/DLC really buggy?

I would say that my freezes increased quite noticeably after Earth dropped. Certainly had a few before, but I'd say I'm close to ten since last Tuesday.

Ok, good. Glad to know it's not just me. I have the 2nd generation 360 (when the problem was "supposedly" fixed), so I was worried I was going to have to replace it with the Slim.

Really wish BioWare would beta test these DLCs. Too many bugs have gotten through their QA. Then again, they did sell out to EA so that might be why.

Put a Claymore X with Shredder/Choke mods on my Demolisher to make her live up to her name further. She's one of the few builds that I've totally ignored fitness on, so it's nice to be able to pop up, hit someone for a shit ton of damage, and get back down with minimal exposure. I'm normally not wild about camping classes, but she's a pretty good time.

Pretty sure the Krysae's dead now. Not looking forward to getting stomped on Gold and Platinum. Apparently the Cobras actually fire as soon as you pull the trigger now, which is quite welcome as far as I'm concerned.

They change all that crap and still don't give an incentive to survive past the last objective.

Seriously. Saving time > extraction. Dying after finishing the objective on Wave 10, saves a good 3-10 minutes (depends). A fairly skilled team can finish Gold in a good 20 minutes or less. Why would I want to extract which just costs me time (which is IRL money) and has no incentive?

Is it just me or does BioWare not understand MP at all? If they don't GET it, they could just ask DICE how to balance. At least they have some experience, rather than "pretending" to have any.

Getting stomped on gold and platinum is the worst shit ever. Like, "I kinda don't want to play this anymore." bad. Apparently Atlas mechs have a ground stomp? That's news to me.

Got the Harrier, anyway. Stoked to try swapping my Saber out for it on a few characters.

I agree. Wave 11 can be a rush with the chaos and that last minute dash to the extraction point.
